A great way to quickly fill out your bedroom with matching décor is to purchase a bedroom furniture set. Depending on which set you select, you could bring home a matching headboard and nightstands — or everything including an armoire or dresser, bedframe and vanity. Before you get started on transforming your nighttime sanctuary into a Zen atmosphere, be sure to measure your bedroom’s length, width and height plus pay close attention to the dimensions of each piece included in the set. Along with size, shape, color and style, here are a few more items to pay attention to while you browse our collection of bedroom furniture sets.
What kinds of materials can bedroom furniture sets be made of?
Much like other home furniture options, your bedroom furniture can be constructed from solid wood or metal. While these are more durable options, they tend to be more expensive than particleboard or medium density fiberboard (MDF). While your budget will help you narrow down your choices, it’s also a good idea to keep in mind how long you’d like your bedroom set to last, if it will need to move within the next few years and if you might decide to redo your décor any time in the near future.
What kinds of items are included in bedroom sets?
Bedroom sets vary in terms of what pieces of furniture they include. Some of the more common pieces are:
• Bedframe: Ranging in sizes that include twin, full, queen, king and California king, your bed frame is the most important part of your bedroom set (perhaps only second to your mattress). Your bedframe may also include a headboard, footboard or combination of the two that add a decorative element to the room.
• Nightstand: Most sets include one or two nightstands, and these are the perfect spot for your alarm clock and a reading lamp. Of course, you may have shelves built into your headboard or lamps attached to the wall, so nightstands may not be necessary.
• Dresser, armoire or chest of drawers: While dressers are short and long, a chest of drawers is tall and thin and an armoire is tall and typically just a bit wider than a chest of drawers. Most bedroom sets will include at least one of these options. Think about which style you’d most prefer, and don’t forget to consider the amount of horizontal and vertical space each style takes up. It’s wise to consider whether you’ll need more drawers or a cabinet to hang up suits, dress shirts, dresses and other items prone to wrinkling.
• Vanity: Though vanities are less common in bedroom furniture sets, you may find a few sets with one. These are a great place for ladies to put on makeup and jewelry without having to battle it out for a spot in the bathroom, making them a wise choice if you find your bathroom vanities being a source of contention in your home.
