Things to Consider when Buying Bedroom Furniture

Designing your perfect bedroom can be an intimidating task no matter if you are shopping for an individual piece of bedroom furniture, or an entirely new matching bedroom set. People enjoy crafting a bedroom based on their own personalities. Our wide variety of bed furniture available through Hayneedle.com includes bedroom furniture sets, headboards, beds, dressers and more. Our selection allows our customers to create a relaxed atmosphere they can enjoy coming home to that appeals to their unique sense of individual style. Here are some tips you'll want to consider when creating your ideal bedroom.


Know the Available Size for Your New Bedroom Furniture


Start your planning by knowing the size of your bedroom. This will help you decide how many (or how few) elements to add to have a nice balance between space and decoration. If you have a small bedroom and a king-sized bed, for example, you're going to want to scale down on the dresser size and decide whether or not you really need a nightstand. If your bedroom is larger, you may decide you really want a hope chest at the foot of your bed. When determining size, also consider how you're going to get the furniture in and out of your bedroom. If you have a tight corner to navigate, it might be good to do some measurements before you buy that oversized armoire.


Thinking About the Cost & Budget for Your New Bedroom Set


Designing or refurbishing your bedroom does not have to be overly expensive if you do it correctly. That's why it's important to have a budget in mind when you start shopping bedroom collections. Buying the perfect four-poster bed and then not being able to afford the amazing bedding is pointless. Keep in mind your overall budget and the cost of the items (including all of the decorative elements) before starting, to ensure you have the right pieces at the right price. Research is essential.


Creating a Theme for a Bedroom Set


It can be difficult to start with one piece of furniture, such as a bed, and work around it. Try to imagine how other furnishings will fit as you begin determining the look and feel you're trying to accomplish in your bedroom. There are many things to consider when shopping around for the perfect bedroom set. Take some time to research options to find the styles and features that fit your needs.

Do you love modern bedroom furniture? Are you designing a bedroom for your child who loves Disney characters? Do you want your bedroom to have rustic charm? Once you determine the overall theme of the bedroom, including style and design preferences, you'll be able to pick out furniture pieces, bedding, color, and flooring that will complement those preferences and help you create your dream bedroom.

Some important things to consider when selecting furniture for your Bedroom Set:

  • Décor. What is design style do you want in your bedroom? Consider color, flooring, design, and furnishings.
  • Room size and measurements. Don't make the mistake of adding too much furniture or finding out too late that the bed you chose won't fit up the stairs without cutting it in half.
  • Functionality. Look for furniture you will use every day and that have proper storage capacity.
  • Craftsmanship. Most of the time the old standard applies, "you get what you pay for." Look for quality craftsmanship even when bargain shopping. Smooth opening drawers, dovetailed construction, and durable finish are all well worth the expense.

With such a wide variety of styles and designs, finding the right bedroom set may take time and a bit of research. There are many types of bedroom furniture to choose from with styles that range from Rustic to Modern. The following are some designs that are commonly available:

  • Contemporary & Modern
  • Rustic
  • Country & Cottage
  • Traditional
  • Transitional

With the right research and consideration, designing your ideal bedroom can be a lot of fun. When you're finished, we're sure you'll be thankful for all of the thought and consideration you put into making your bedroom perfect.
