Bedrooms were the sixth-most common type of renovation in the US in 2020 after kitchens, basements, bathrooms, offices, and garages. Though you might not spend most of your waking time in this room, you spend at least one-third of your life there in total!
For that reason, it’s important your bedroom is calming, cozy, and functional. Upgrading your bedroom furniture is one way you can improve all these qualities in your bedroom.
Not sure how to buy bedroom furniture sets that meet your needs and will stand the test of time? Follow these tips and you soon will!
- Consider Your Bedroom Storage Needs
Clothes, linens, toiletries, books, upcoming birthday presents… You might need to squeeze a lot into your bedroom depending on how much other space you have available in your home.
Make a list of everything you need to store in your bedroom and measure your bedroom. This will help you choose bedroom storage furniture that fits the size of your room and everything you need to store. If the list doesn’t add up, you might need to purge some of your belongings first.
Consider buying beds with storage underneath and wardrobes that make full use of your ceiling height. But if you do have a small bedroom, furniture with legs can make the space seem bigger.
- Choose the Right Furniture Style
If you want your house to have a cohesive style, you should buy bedroom furniture to match. Homeowners that like rustic and feminine styles should seek white furniture with ornate carvings. And homeowners that like modern bedroom furniture should opt for pieces with metal accents and sleek, clean lines.
If you’re not sure what your style is, take a trip to a couple of bedroom furniture stores in your area for inspiration. Even if you prefer buying furniture online, you will get a better sense of what styles you like by seeing the furniture in person.
- Focus On Functionality and Comfort
Your bedroom is where you sleep and get dressed so you should set it up for these two activities. If you have the space, invest in a king-sized bed with a high-quality mattress and soft headboard like this one.
Choose solid wood furniture if you want your furniture to last more than a few years. But if you’re buying kids bedroom furniture, you might want to do the opposite.
Kids grow out of their bedrooms fast. Even if they don’t destroy it with crayons, you might not be able to get the Spider-Man stickers off their wardrobe doors either. Opt for second-hand or cheaper furniture so it won’t hurt your wallet as much if you need to buy furniture again in two years.
That’s How To Pick Great Bedroom Furniture
