GUEST POST: How TO Choose Furniture For A Bedroom


Very few of us know how to choose furniture for a bedroom. We have never really had a reason to. It may seem like a difficult affair. However, the process of choosing bedroom furniture is easy.

Most of us rarely relocate to new houses regularly. We, therefore, don’t need to buy bed furniture since our current furniture is in good shape. Hence, it should be no surprise that a majority of us have no idea what the difference between a bed chest and a nightstand is?
Lack of knowledge can, at times, make tasks feel as if they are impossible to complete. Right? However, this shouldn’t trouble you when you walk into a bedroom furniture store. You are probably wondering whether this is correct. Well, keep reading to find out more.

Where To Buy Bedroom Furniture

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out where to buy bedroom furniture. The best place to buy bedroom furniture is either in online shops like Amazon or bedroom furniture stores.
However, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Before visiting the store, you need to figure out the bedroom furniture ideas you like best. To get you started on that, we’ve compiled a list of the things to consider before you choose the bedroom furniture that is to your liking.

What To Consider When Looking For Bedroom Furniture

Неre are several criteria to consider before buying bedroom furniture.

1. Bedroom Space

You must know the amount of bedroom space you have. You can easily do this yourself by measuring your room. The amount of space you have determines the kind of bedroom furniture you will purchase.

2. Bedroom Furniture Style

The style that you want your new bedroom furniture to have boils down to your preferences. Do you want the clean mid-century design? You may prefer the minimalist appeal style. Or are you more of a farmhouse bedroom kind of person? Your style will determine the design of your bedroom furniture. It is because the two have to mesh to create a relaxing environment.

3. Bed Designs

Before choosing a bed, you need to be aware of which headboard and footboard designs suit you best. You will need to think ahead of how the design of the bed will affect your room. Will high headboards affect the natural light in the room?

If you decide to go as far as changing your bed size, remember to change your mattress and your mattress pad cover .

4. Bed Chests and Nightstands

Nightstands and bed chests are really useful in a bedroom. This is where you place your night lamp, your phone, and even your eyeglasses.
Bed chests are taller than nightstands and include single column drawers. Nightstands, on the other hand, are shorter and are fitted with an open space or cabinet doors below the top drawer.
Whichever you choose to use, you will need two, one on each side of the bed if you are in a master bedchamber.

5. Wardrobes

I'm not a modern sort. In fact, though, I suppose it's hard to say what sort I am. I'm used to more classical lines, without the heaviness shown in the first image. I find I like art deco, so perhaps there is a style best representing that...

A friend does art deco type paintings and the community centre in the town where I live used to be an art deco cinema. I think it dates back to the 1930s era, though not sure.

That's definitely the time period. Some extend it back, before 1920 I believe. And some push it forward at least into the 1940s. But I think the 30s is typical.
