Bedroom Reveal : The Range

The Range, childrens furniture

I am very excited to reveal Miss A’s new bedroom to you all today. I can’t believe the transformation that it has undertaken. I think we have solved all of the problems we had with her previous bedroom, and the room she now has is so much prettier and easier to keep tidy.  She loves it, and has named it her new princess bedroom.

Firstly I thought I would talk a little bit about the ordering and delivery with The Range.

Its very simple to order items online, with The Range, and when they were due to be delivered it was actually when we had very heavy snow in the UK.  I gave the customer service team a quick call, to check timings and they were so helpful.  In actual fact, from the point of ordering they took up to four days to be delivered (it was delivered in two separate batches) and that included the weekend, great service!

The Bed is from the Julian Bowen range of furniture. It’s a 90cm single bed with a metal frame, and very well made.  Priced at £129.99 (without the mattress) it’s great value for money too. I think it is the perfect bed for a girls bedroom, it looks very princessy now (as requested by Miss A) but will grow with her, which is so important.  It also is at a height that we can now purchase under-bed storage for, so no more mess!

The bedside unit and the bed, were sent flat packed, and Tall Dad found them easy to put together, and there were no issues of missing pieces etc, and he completed the task in a couple of hours.  The drawers are the perfect height, and have enough space for keeping all of her pyjamas and underwear in. It has meant we can put her night light on the bedside drawers (the china cottage in the above photograph) safely in the evening, as well as a book for her to read in the morning.The Range, new childrensbedroom

The bedside cabinet is also from the Julian Bowen range, priced at £89.99. It is very solidly built, and feels substantial. I love the simplicity of the design and the colour is neutral so will also work when she is older.


We also choose this rose photograph frame, from The Range a complete bargain at £7.99. It has room for 9 photographs, and is very pretty, and French shabby chic looking!


Finally we choose the bedding, we wanted the look to be girly, but not babyish. Miss A, had requested, red and pink, and we settled for this bedding, and she loves it. It does have lots of dusky pink and a little bit of a red/pink too at the centre of the roses.

There is a great selection of bedding, and as this came with a matching throw too, we thought it would give the pretty princess look we wanted to achieve. The single ‘Sarah’ duvet is priced £10.99 including the pillow case. The throw, folded at the foot of the bed is priced at £25.99.  I have only washed the duvet cover once so far, but it washed well, I just needed to remember not to tumble dry.


So what do you think?

As you can see from the photographs, Miss A is already making herself at home, with her handbags on the bed, and her pretend mobile phone on the bedside cabinet. She absolutely loves her new grown up room, and so do we.  The only problem is, we now have to do a transformation on her sisters room Miss N (10).  So watch this space, as that room has many more issues that we need to resolve, and I hope to cover this on the blog too.

Thank you for reading

    Oh Amanda that looks so good, we’ve got a box room to decorate and i think it’s slightly smaller than Miss A’s but you’ve really showed you can make even small rooms full of character. Can’t wait until our rooms are ready to decorate as right now they are still a building site :@(

    • Hi Amanda, thanks for coming over and commenting.
      Good luck with all of your home improvements, sounds like you have lots of plans. I’m of the thinking that smaller room, are easier to keep tidy, fingers crossed anyway!

        I think the smaller room will be easier to decorate because it doesn’t really need to be practical yet. Whereas the master bedroom needs to be practical as well which i think is so much harder to get right. Long way of that yet so don’t need to worry just yet.

    Wow a room for a princess! I have just been tidying Erin’s room this morning and was thinking it’ll soon be time to do something. I need to find any easy storage solution that means she can still get to stuff but it can be tidy!

    I love the look you have put together.
