When it comes to bedroom furnishing it is important to be attentive to all its elements that will create a final image and ambiance of the room. The bedroom’s ambiance is an intimate relaxation zone so Furniture Direction tries to provide furniture that will add to coziness, comfort, and of course style.
So, let’s find out more precisely what you should know when you choose furniture for a bedroom.
First of all, let’s talk about the bedroom sets that represent a complete and harmonized design composition. All furniture pieces of the bedroom set are a part of one visual idea, so you shouldn’t think about finding an appropriate for your bed nightstand- professional designers already thought about this.
Furniture Direction represents a contemporary view on the design so all sets in our assortment will vary from the minimalist style to the transitional style.
Bedroom sets can be in different configurations:
- Bed+Nightstand+Dresser+Mirror+ Chest
The bed as the central element of the bedroom’s interior should be chosen with special attention. The quality of your sleep depends on the bed in the first place and your sleep has an influence on your future day, so think properly about this aspect.
In the first place, there are two bed’s types
This bed type differs with the one principal moment: it doesn’t need a box spring. Usually, it is made in contemporary styles and doesn’t have a headboard and footboard. But these aspects are not a necessity.
The panel bed requires a box spring and it usually has a headboard and footboard. It has a more classic and traditional design, but can be also elaborated in a modern manner.These bed types have subcategories:
Storage bed is the most practical bed type and it includes various storage places. There can be shelves in the headboard or drawers on the sides and in the footboard. Or it can have a storage place in the bed itself, that opens if you raise the bed.
The sleigh bed is interesting with its shape, in accordance with the name it resembles sleigh. The headboard and footboard have gorgeous curves that create a unique design.
A canopy bed has posts on the corners, these posts can be united with one construction or can be represented in the design of the singular posts. The last design is also named poster bed.
- Twin: 35 in × 75 in
- Double: 53 in × 75 in
- Queen: 60 in × 80 in
- Eastern King: 76 in × 80 in
- California King: 72 in × 84 in
- Texas King: 80 in × 98 in
This nightstand doesn’t have drawers so it is a good choice for those who don’t need storage near the bed. You can keep only the most needed things and maybe a lamp on the top surface.
Drawer and shelf nightstand
These nightstands combine two storage place types: shelf and drawers. The top surface and shelf can be for things that you use frequently, and the drawer can be a good place for keeping things that you don’t need at the most times, but you need to keep them near the bed.
This nightstand is like a small chest, it has two or free drawers and is the most popular nightstand type thanks to its practicality.
Dresser and chest
Dressers and chests are the most classic solution for bedroom storage. To find a more appropriate storage type you should consider the room’s size and your needs. If you have not a big room think about the dresser. Dressers are quite a popular option for the bedroom because usually, you prefer to change clothes in the morning after sleep and in the evening before sleep. They are smaller than the chest and usually come with a mirror, which is quite comfortable. They come in a large variety of shapes and types. Dressers have in most cases a horizontal elongated and low shape, chests are vertical and high.
Chests can have drawers and doors and in combination with the dresser can provide a lot of storage space for your clothes and linen.
This natural material has a lot of advantages like eco-friendliness, durability, and this unique wood pattern for which we love it. Furniture made from wood looks luxurious and has a monumental image, but also it is more expensive than other materials and it requires special care.
Chipboard, MDF, and particleboard
These materials come as a wood imitation with the more pleasant lower price. Yes, it doesn’t look just like the wood and they don’t live such long life like the wood, but it still can be quite a good choice. And you should consider that chipboard has a lower price than MDF and is more toxic.
When it comes to the colors you should, first of all, consider the conditions you have: how much light do you have in the bedroom and how big is it.
If you have a small room and you are in the need of visual space expansion, pay your attention to the light palette. If you will choose a dark tone they can worsen your situation.
The same approach to the “light problem”. A bedroom with small windows and a small amount of natural light can look dull and sad in the dark shades, but with the help of the artificial lighting accents, this situation can be changed to an intimate and cozy ambiance.
And also of course chosen color palette depends on the interior style of the room- they should correspond one with another.
Classic styles prefer creamy and natural colors like sandy, ivory, pale green and blue, chocolate colors.
Close to the ethnic styles look better in the lush and lively shades. These styles are characterized by bold and bright color combinations. Natural wood color in the combination with the red, green, and blue colors is something usual for these styles.
Modern styles like cols and restraint colors like white, silver, and different shades of grey.
Tips on choosing bedroom furniture
- You should decide on the common theme and ambiance of your bedroom before choosing furniture. Furniture should come as the final step, like the last elements of the picture that will complete the composition and not ruin it.
- Consider room size and depending on it decide how many bedroom furniture elements you can allow for yourself without cluttering the space. And depending on the room size choose a particular bedroom furniture type: maybe for example instead of the chest, it better will be to choose a dresser? Or maybe your Texas King bed type can be exchanged for some queen size bed that will give you more space for another nightstand?
- Take into account your budget and always make the right priorities. You can economize on some furniture pieces like for example storage pieces to buy the bed with the better quality, that will give you more comfort.
- Read carefully all furniture characteristics before buying it.
