Size.The first consideration for your chest of drawers is the size that you need. In a tiny room, look for a tall slim chest that won't stick out too far from the wall but will offer you plenty of storage. Slim chests can be quite narrow so check the width and make sure that this is suitable for what you intend to put in the drawers. You also need to look at the depth of the drawers – if for example you're looking to store jumpers, very shallow drawers won't be suitable. In a child's room, consider what height the chest of drawers will need to be for the child to be able to reach the top drawer comfortably. A low set of drawers will be easier to reach and less likely to tumble over if your child decides to climb on it. It is advisable to secure the drawers to the wall with a wall strap anyway, to avoid any accidents. Avoid placing the drawers underneath a window where they could be used to climb up.
Consider scale and proportion, the visual appeal of your bedroom furniture is important, so pay attention to the size of the bedsides that you choose. A simple rule of thumb is that the bedside height should be roughly the height of your mattress (give or take). Lighting is possibly the most important thing you'll place on your bedside table, so consider also the scale and proportion of your bedside lamps. A tiny little lamp will look out of proportion next to a tall bedhead, and vice versa with a huge lamp and a low profile bed. If you love to sit up and read in bed, the lampshade of your lamp should be at chin height so it creates a comfortable ambience for reading while eliminating glare.
We have touched on the importance of light but there are other must-have accessories too. A comfortable, but stylish seating solution, either a chair or stool, is an essential contemporary furniture accessory. Choose an upholstered chair that complements the dressing table and sits within the bedroom's colour scheme too. Reclaimed wood shelving is also available to store any extras that don't fit on the table itself. And finally, choose a wall mirror that is ideal for your space. Add a hint of Art Deco, or stick with the minimalistic Scandinavian appeal or if you want warmth and rustic charm, a reclaimed wood mirror will work well. With a wealth of options on offer, there's really no reason why you can't find the perfect piece for your space, by keeping the above tips in mind. What will you choose.
