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.
What Do You Need? You might be replacing all of your old bedroom furniture, starting from scratch in your first apartment, or just buying a few new pieces, but you should know from the start what you actually need. If you only put on makeup in the bathroom, it doesn't make sense to buy a vanity. If you share your bed with a partner, you'll both want a nightstand. If you or your partner is exceptionally tall, then choose a bed without a footboard so toes aren't cramped during the night. If a dresser is cute, but doesn't have enough drawer space to hold your clothes, it's not the right one for you. And take your lifestyle into account, as well. Is your idea of the perfect Sunday morning breakfast with the whole family piled into your bed? Or maybe you have kids in your bed every night. Does Fido or Mittens share your room? If any of those sound like you, then you need a large bed that's roomy enough for everyone.
Don't feel like you need to match your bedside tables. It can work just as well when you choose two different styles, as long as there is a common thread that brings the two together. This might be a matching colour, similar shape or size. For instance one side of the bed may have more room where you can put a larger chest of drawers or console, while the other side has a smaller table in the same wood finish. Or you might choose a more masculine style for his side and a feminine table for her, in a similar size or shape. Again, don't be afraid to try new things and create an area that works for you. Colour and material choice will help dictate the style you create within your bedroom so pay close attention to this. For a coastal and beachy look you may choose natural materials like rattan or white-washed timber, or for a more industrial look, metal and timber may work well. For inspiration you can turn to the Pinterest or design magazines to get an idea about what suits each style, and then gather inspiration to create your own look.
