The bedroom is probably the most versatile room in the home. Not only is it where you sleep, but it’s where you store clothing and get dressed each morning. With the room’s multifunction purpose comes the need for a variety of furnishings and decor. This is your sanctuary—fill your bedroom with furniture and accessories you love.
The bed is without a doubt the most important piece of bedroom furniture. Start by choosing either a twin, full, queen, king or California king mattress. Then, select either a standalone headboard or a complete poster or panel bed. Now comes the fun part: choosing your bedding. With so many comforters, accent pillows and blankets to choose from, finding bedding you love has never been easier. And, make sure you set yourself up for an excellent night’s sleep by choosing comfortable bed pillows.
Now that you’ve selected your bed and bedding, it’s time to choose the rest of your bedroom furniture. Nightstands are an absolute must—where else will you place the bedside lamps and reading materials? Next, assess your storage needs and the size of your wardrobe. Do you need an armoire, chest of drawers or dresser? Or maybe even all three?
Since many benches have drawers, you can add even more storage by placing one at the foot of your bed. Best of all, a bench performs double duty since it can also serve as seating. If space allows, you can even incorporate chairs into the bedroom to create an intimate conversation space.
No matter the headboard, bedding, storage or seating you choose, make sure your bedroom is a sanctuary. For more tips and tricks, check out the bedroom inspiration articles on our blog. It’s filled with the inspiration you need to create the home of your dreams.
