Choosing new bedroom furniture is both exciting and scary -- exciting, because who doesn't love new things and a new look? And yet scary, because furniture is expensive and the fear of making a mistake can be overwhelming. Luckily, picking the right furniture for your needs is much easier if you ask yourself a few questions before heading to the showroom. Where Will the Furniture Go? Are you buying new furniture for your own master bedroom? Or is this for a child's room or a makeover for a teen's bedroom? Or perhaps you're decorating a designated guest bedroom for anticipated visitors. Obviously, the right furniture is suited to the user of the room, both in style and design.
A low chest of drawers can be an attractive option for older children and adults too. They don't take up much wall space so you can place shelves and shelving units above them. They will usually also be much wider than a regular chest, making them perfect for blankets and other larger or bulkier items. Some sit flat on the floor which maximises space and avoids a build-up of dust underneath.Before you buy your drawers, do measure the floor space available to you and make sure there's plenty of room to walk past them without bumping into the corners. Remember that you'll sometimes be walking around your room in the dark, so leave plenty of space. Some chests have extra features that can be really useful in a busy house. For example, rather than legs, they may feature castors which make it easier to move them around when cleaning or rearranging the room. Other chests have a glass top which is an excellent idea to keep them from getting scratched or stained. However, the glass top is rarely fixed so avoid these in a child's room as they could come loose. The glass is also sometimes placed on tiny pads to help keep it in position and these can present a choking hazard for a young child.
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.
