10 essential Toronto shops to outfit your bedroom

Toronto is filled with shops that'll help dress your bedroom up to the nines. Regardless of your budget, you can find high-quality mattresses, linens and furniture at locally-owned businesses. So whether you're moving into a studio apartment or a swanky Rosedale-area pad, you never have to sacrifice good design.

Here are 10 essential Toronto shops you'll need to visit to outfit your bedroom.

Mattresses
While Endy Sleep has a showroom located at Queen and Bathurst, it's primarily an online business that hopes to make mattress shopping easier. You can order yours via Endy Sleep's website and the company will deliver it directly to your doorstep.

Bed Frames
Stylegarage is one of Toronto's most well-known independent furniture stores for a reason. It offers up stylish contemporary furniture and its bed frames are no exception. It specializes in low-profile models and has storage options for those looking to save space with under-the-bed drawers.

Bedding
Your dream mattress is useless unless you have comfy sheets, and a nice warm duvet, to slide into at the end of a long day. Au Lit Fine Linens, on Yonge near Davisville, has you covered with Egyptian cotton bedding, down duvets as well as a slew of other options including eco-friendly bamboo sheets.

Wallpaper
Ink Shuffle, a Toronto-based company, lets you redecorate on a whim. With customized prints available, you can decorate with a serene seascape, a calming geometric pattern or a 50-feet by 50-feet photo of your cat. Best of all, this wallpaper is easy to put on and peels right off when you're bored of it.

Rugs
If you don't want a giant wall decal of your kitty, how about a custom cat rug? It's actually one of the services that Totem Rugs offers. This Toronto-based retailer will work with you to create your ideal rug or tapestry, meaning you can jazz up your bedroom in your own unique style.

Nightstands
Pavilion on Gladstone Avenue sells a wide variety of furniture, including an array of night and side tables in a bevy of sizes and customizable finishes, whether you're looking to augment your storage space or are just looking for a decorative piece.

Floor Mirror
Kroft+Co bills itself as a purveyor of "slow-design" furniture. And the company's new floor mirror seems to fit that aesthetic. It's made of white oak and walnut and you don't even need to hang it up. Simply prop it against a wall and you're good to go.

Table lamps
For an array of vintage lamps, head to Eclectic Revival in the Junction. You won't find contemporary reading lights here though. Instead, search for fixtures from the early 1900s or consider a custom piece to make a statement in your bedroom.

Dressers
Shelter Furniture in the Castlefield Design District has dressers as well as credenzas to help you keep your bedroom neat and tidy, especially if you lack sought-after closet space.

Hampers
Avoid lugging around your dirty laundry thanks to this wheely cart from the Old Faithful Shop located in the West Queen West neighbourhood. This shop, an import from Vancouver, stocks an array of homeware, but this canvas laundry cart would work well in your bedroom.
