Bedroom Furniture

Posted by seo |

Finding the perfect bedroom furniture deserves every bit of attention and detail because it’s where you retreat after a long and stressful day at the office or school. Since the bedroom is a private sanctuary, it should be a place that feels relaxing, comfortable, and luxurious.

Although searching for the right bedroom furniture can be a bit overwhelming, it’s worth taking your time in order to find pieces that are comfortable and reflect your personality and style. Understanding the different types of bedroom furniture that is available will arm you with the necessary information to make the best choices. Who knows, you may even discover some furniture pieces that you would not have considered a possibility until now.



Selecting the Right Bedroom Furniture

When searching for bedroom furniture, consider putting your comfort first.



While you may be tempted to purchase bedroom furniture based only on how lovely it looks, that could come back to haunt you if you later realize that the furniture is very uncomfortable. Remember that beautiful furniture does not always mean that it will be comfy.

One of the other things to keep in mind when selecting bedroom furniture is function.



When you think about it, aside from sleeping, we spend a lot of time in our bedroom applying makeup, doing our hair, watching TV, or reading a book, which means that the bedroom necessitates a set up to accommodate all of these activities.



If you prefer to handle the household finances in your bedroom, then perhaps you may wish to consider incorporating a secretary desk. Bedroom furniture that includes a desk makes the room all that much more functional.


Other bedroom furniture to consider includes an armoire for a TV, a chest of drawers, a dresser, vanity, chaise, corner chair, or bench. Since storage is a major factor in most bedrooms, it is important to include enough storage space. This will eliminate having piles of clothes strewn about and will make for an organized and tidy bedroom.


The centerpiece to any bedroom is the bed itself. A bed needs to be built solidly while at the same time feel comfortable. To bring a sense of grandeur and sophistication, opt for a majestic mahogany sleigh bed. If you have a guest bedroom that you would like to furnish and prefer a smaller bed that will achieve a feeling of elegance and has a dual function, you may want to go with a daybed.


Having a theme for the bedroom is a good starting point. There are many styles available that choosing a theme that appeals to you should not be difficult. If you are unsure as to what style appeals to you, please visit, Choose a Style for specific details on the different styles available.


Types of Bedroom Furniture

Beds


Beds are offered in four standard sizes – king size, queen size, double, and twin.



When searching for a bed, it is best to choose one that fits your sense of style.


Beds are available in the following styles:


  • Arched

  • Canopy

  • Daybed with Trundle

  • Panel

  • Platform

  • Poster

  • Sleigh

  • Upholstered

Arched: This type of bed features an arched headboard and makes a fabulous impact in the bedroom because of its graceful curves. Not only does it exude a feeling of warmth and richness, but it brings a traditional feel to the bedroom furniture. If you are looking for a style that is not overbearing and commands instant attention in any bedroom, then this is an excellent choice.


Canopy: A canopy bed has been in existence for centuries and it’s no surprise that it is a favorite. At its inception, in 16th/17th-century Europe, canopy beds played a role in offering an extra layer of protection against the elements. The canopy bed drapes could be drawn and families would all sleep in the same bed for additional warmth. They were also used by lords and nobleman in medieval Europe for warmth and privacy since their attendants often slept in the same room. When the first settlers came over the Atlantic, they brought the canopy bed and it has remained a romantic reminder of the Old World.


A canopy bed is a decorative bed that is somewhat similar to a four-poster bed. It features posts at each of the four corners extending four feet high or more above the mattress. Most often accompanying a canopy bed is a canopy top. This is a nice option if you choose a canopy bed with an arched top. Canopy tops are essentially fitted pieces of ornate or decorative fabric that is stretched over the top frame.



To enhance the intimate feel of a canopy bed, you may wish to consider canopy bed drapes. It is recommended that you opt for opaque or patterned fabrics for an elegant enclosure.


If you prefer to do without a canopy top or canopy drapes, you may wish to leave the canopy bars bare. This provides for a clean and simple look.


Daybed with Trundle: A daybed is a type of bed that resembles a couch with the back also functioning as the headboard. In order to convert a daybed that features a trundle into a full size bed, simple pull out the trundle from beneath the bed. Usually, the trundle portion is on wheels in order to make it easier to pull it out from beneath the daybed.



The trundle can then be popped up to make it the same level as the main portion of the daybed. Using a daybed link spring, the trundle portion can be easily connected to the main daybed in order to make a king size bed. The trundle can also be left separate in order to create two twin size beds.

To clarify, a link spring is a metal grid-like structure with springs that substitutes for a box spring.



The daybed link spring attaches to the side panels of the daybed frame and creates a sturdy, stable daybed. The mattress rests on the daybed link spring, allowing room below for the optional second mattress.


A daybed is ideal for guest bedroom furniture in which the room also functions as an office. When the daybed is set up in its couch form, it is a great space saving solution since it does not take up much space in the room. However, when guests arrive, the daybed can easily be converted to a bed, which is very convenient.


These beds are also used in children's bedrooms, to provide a bed for a sleepover guest. It is also useful when multiple children share the same bedroom, which allows them enough space in the bedroom to be active during the day since the trundle is put away. The neat thing is that most trundle beds are light enough for a child to move without the assistance of an adult. This allows for the child to make the bed and then put it away after he/she gets up in the morning.


Daybeds are constructed of a variety of materials to complement many decorating schemes. Some assemblies include daybeds that are carved from wood, made from cast iron, or upholstered in fabric to resemble traditional style couches.


This versatile piece of bedroom furniture makes a great sofa/bed arrangement in any bedroom.


Panel: A panel bed consists of a headboard and footboard that feature a convex curve. This provides linear contrast and interest to the overall look of the bed. Some panel beds feature raised panels and corner posts, with leather padding on the headboard and footboard. Other panel beds have headboards with leather inserts or feature gracefully shaped fronts, along with delicate carvings. Although the details vary with each panel bed, the result is a handsome bed overflowing with a dramatic and striking design.

Headboard designs are available in rectangular cutouts while others have two headboards that are independently adjustable to provide comfort and support while reading or watching TV. A platform bed is sure to be the focal point of your bedroom furniture for many years to come.
