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.
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.
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.
