When it comes to creating the ideal environment for your room, the most significant element to address is the quality of the air you breathe.

novita’s PuriClean™ Air Purifier A11 goes beyond typical air cleaning, it actively eliminates more than 99.99% of virus and bacteria in 60 minutes with its Nano Ions H13 HEPA PuriPRO® Filtration System.

In addition to cleaning the air, its integrated ioniser further freshens your indoor air quality. Out of all the spaces in your home, your bedroom, in particular, stands out as a critical location for an air purifier. It’s not just because mattresses can contribute to airborne allergens — the PuriClean Air Purifier A11 powered by Nano Ions H13 HEPA PuriPRO® Filtration System, excels at removing pollutants of all sizes, from giant dust mites to minuscule viruses. But it’s because we spend 8-12 hours in our rooms every day.

If you suffer from allergies or have a sensitive nose, an air purifier is indispensable for reducing congestion, ensuring easier, uninterrupted breathing during your sleep.

In comparison to other air purifiers, novita’s offering boasts exceptional power within its category. With an AHAM CADR Particulate (PM2.5) rating of 440m3/hr and smoke rating of 318.5 m3/hr, a powerful air flow rate of 500m3/hr, and extensive coverage of 1076 ft², it easily surpasses the requirements for the average bedroom in Singapore.

For the sake of developing a healthier lifestyle, you might want to consider an standing desk instead of a regular one.

With the flexibility to switch between sitting and standing positions, it combats the sedentary lifestyle, improves posture, and surprisingly — increases productivity. In a world where remote work and study are prevalent, this innovation offers the versatility to adapt to your needs, making it a vital upgrade for a contemporary bedroom where functionality meets well-being.

If you have extra space in the bedroom, a vanity dresser is a quintessential add-on in 2023, serving as a hub for your beauty and grooming routine.

Not only does it keep your cosmetics, jewelry, and accessories organised, but it also adds a touch of elegance to your bedroom decor. A well-designed vanity dresser elevates your daily self-care rituals, making them more convenient and enjoyable. Some of the prettiest vanity dressers in Singapore are available at Urban Mood.

9. Full length mirror

A full-length mirror is a non-negotiable bedroom essential.

Beyond the perfect fit check picture, having a full-length mirror actually creates an illusion that your room is more spacious. While Shopee and Taobao are increasingly popular places to shop for mirrors, we recommend making your purchase at more reputable local stores with showrooms, such as Linear Furnishings. Choosing to shop locally ensures that you receive a quality mirror without the risk of encountering blurry, scratched, or murky reflections.

10. Room scents, candles and essential oil diffusers

Candles may seem like a luxurious indulgence, but the right scent can do wonders for your mood.

We’re well aware of the therapeutic benefits of essential oils, but even the pleasant smells of custom, blended fragrances, such as Pristine Aroma’s hotel-inspired scents, can work their magic. These scents have the power to uplift your spirits and set a serene tone in your room.

For your choice of scent, you can choose between a candle, reed diffuser, dehumidifier, room spray, or simply adding a few drops of essential oils concentrate around your room.

11. Lounge chair

These inviting seats create a cosy nook for reading, meditating, simply unwinding — or, those moments when you’re too lazy to shower but you just want to crawl into bed? A bean bag is a classic, especially if you’re looking to save space, but the ultimate indulgence is a standalone lounge chair like this TikTok-viral caterpillar lounge chair from HipVan.

12. Ottoman

The ottoman is probably the most underrated bedroom essential. This versatile piece does double duty — it’s a comfy footrest or an extra seat for when you have company, and some even acts as an additional storage space!

Its role extends beyond function, adding a touch of sophistication to your bedroom. You can choose from a variety of styles and fabrics to complement your decor, ensuring it blends seamlessly with your bedroom’s aesthetic.

13. Wall Art

Wall art is the soul of bedroom design.

It brings life and personality to your space, turning plain walls into captivating canvases of self-expression. Whether it’s a striking painting, framed photographs, or unique artwork, it sets the mood and adds depth to your sanctuary. You can either buy art pieces from local artists or furniture stores, or, simply curate your very own wall by printing posters.
