What's Your Decorating Style? If you love all things contemporary, you won't be happy with a rustic, country bedroom set. If you have a beloved decorating style, you'll want furniture that complements it. That doesn't mean you should lock yourself in a rigid mindset, however: a great deal of bedroom furniture is transitional in style, meaning somewhere in between traditional and modern. That means it generally works well with most decorating themes. Do You Want a Matched Set? While it's certainly safe to buy a complete, matched set of bedroom furniture, it's not required and it's not even necessarily the best choice. In a very traditional or formal room, a matched set looks great, but in more casual styles, too much matchy-match can be stifling or boring. Instead, choose a variety of pieces that complement – but don't perfectly match – each other and the overall decorating style of the room. Is the Room Shared? If two people share the room, whether that's two siblings or a married couple, you need to take both people into account when choosing furniture. If it's two siblings, you'll need beds for each. For any shared room, both inhabitants need a dresser or chest of drawers to hold their clothing and a nightstand or bedside table with a lamp. You'll also need to think about both people's tastes and desires. Compromise may be necessary, but nobody should be unhappy with their bedroom.
Go Big to Small. When you've found the spot you think works best for your bed, arrange everything else starting with the biggest furniture item followed by smaller ones. Usually the dresser comes next, followed by bedside tables, a desk, shelves, chairs, and anything else you may have. Small-bedroom tip: If your closet is spacious, see if you can fit your dresser inside it. This will open up a lot of extra space (for activities!) in the room itself. Place Your Area Rug Properly. Though it's not a furniture item, your area rug placement will definitely depend on your room's finalized layout. Area rugs are typically placed underneath the lower two-thirds of the bed so they create a cushy area to step on as you get out of bed in the morning. If your bed is tucked into a corner, your rug will likely have to be placed somewhere else, like next to the bed or in the center of the open part of your room.
Arrange the Furniture You Have First. Another quick tip before you get started: Don't buy new furniture until you've arranged the pieces you already have. That way you'll know the exact furniture you need, along with the dimensions and style you're looking for. Draw it Out. It's a good idea to experiment with different arrangements on paper before you start pushing furniture around the room. That way you can eliminate some options that won't work without potentially scratching your floor or walls while moving your dresser for the zillionth time (believe me, it happens). Measure at least your biggest items (bed, dresser, shelves, etc.), as well as the dimensions of your room, then sketch out a couple of different options.
