How to Love Your Bedroom Set

0

Putting together a complete bedroom revitalizes your space and helps you enjoy spending time in your bedroom again. Of course, you want to get it right. Even more than wasting time changing out all the furniture again (not to mention repainting), you don’t want to have to spend even more money redoing the room after your first effort doesn’t quite hit the mark.

But before bracing yourself for the stress of shopping or simply making an impulsive decision you’ll regret later, it’s a good idea to stop and consider exactly what you want your bedroom to be. Taking this time to think about the key aspects that contribute to the overall atmosphere of your space will make all the difference.

Bedroom Set

Five basic components are involved in selecting the right bedroom set. Considering the purpose of your space, your sense of style, your budget, the room dimensions, furniture functionality, and matching various components will help you articulate exactly what you want for your bedroom.

In the long run, basing your furniture purchasing decisions on these important components makes all the difference between tolerating your bedroom and loving it. 

Though it sounds simple, it’s crucial to start by considering the purpose of the room you are designing. Apart from being a bedroom and sleeping space, think about how many people will be using the room.

Is it a child’s room, for instance? A guest room? Will the space be used primarily by a single adult living in that room or, as in the case of a guest room, will you need the bedroom to be multifunctional and include the option of multiple sleepers? 

Figuring out the exact purpose of the space first will set you up to make smart decisions about your bedroom set that will help make it the ideal space for that purpose. A room that isn’t functional, no matter how lovely the décor, won’t be useful. No one will want to spend time in it.

Moreover, you won’t feel as positively about your home overall when the awareness that one or more of the bedrooms aren’t at the level where you know they could be.

Once you’ve narrowed down the precise purpose of the bedroom, you should determine your exact maximum budget for your refurnishing project. Sticking to your overall budget is just as important as any design choice. With your total budget in mind, determine which specific parts of the bedroom will be worth investing slightly more into.

For example, a high-quality mattress makes more sense in a personal bedroom than in a guest room. You’ll be better able to divide up your budget to account for the different elements you need when you have a good understanding of how much you can allot for each.

With these two considerations taken care of, the remaining work becomes much simpler. Naturally, it’s important to factor in the size of the room and any unusual angles.

For instance, an attic room with a sloped ceiling might require a lower profile bed frame. When measuring your space, be sure to consider whether you will need to leave room for outlet access or vents, too.

Don’t forget to measure vertically, as well. A headboard that blocks a window will never look quite right and will block natural light from entering the room.

It’s now finally time to consider style. Here, your options are almost limitless, which can be both fantastic and overwhelming. Consider the shape of the space, the lighting, and the style of the house overall when making this decision.

You might want to stay consistent by keeping each room in the home following a consistent style or design pattern, or you might want to create a separate color and design palette for each individual room.

Whatever you choose, keep in mind that each room will feel more cohesive and welcoming if it maintains a consistent style throughout the room.

A key component of style that will help the room feel cohesive is to limit your color palette. No matter what your style preference, working with a single neutral color combined with two other colors will help tie all the elements of the space together. This also allows you to play with your décor and bring in elements that contain one of these colors.

Matching furniture pieces is part of this. You’ll need to decide whether you want to play with individual pieces for a more eclectic feel or purchase a completely matching bedroom set. When you do buy bedsets, they come with the added benefit of matching already. One of the easiest ways to ensure your room will match is to begin by building up from a complete bedroom set. Of course, sets come with various components.

Ask yourself which pieces you need in the room (and what the size of the space will accommodate) before browsing the thousands of sets available online and getting a feel for which options appeal most to you. Think about whether you will use or need two nightstands on either side of the bed, for instance.

Keep in mind that stylistic considerations are closely connected to functional ones. Choosing the necessary pieces in the style you prefer should not mean forgetting about their purpose and practicality.

You want to find the perfect balance of style and function, which means thinking about how the furniture will be used. In a child’s bedroom, for instance, durable materials are far more important than intricate detailing or more delicate fabrics that might be more easily damaged. As you have probably noticed, each of these components are interconnected. 

You can’t fully consider one interior design element without considering the others if you want to find the appropriate balance between all five.

However, if you do take the time to consider each essential component, you’re far more likely to end up with a bedroom you are happy with than a room you avoid or need to redo again within a year or two. Keeping in mind your budget, the purpose and function of the room, style, and matching options, you’ll be well on your way to owning a bedroom set that you love in no time.
