If you are just moving into a new house or apartment, choosing bedroom furniture can be a daunting task. You want your bedroom to look good, but at the same time not cluttered. You want the furniture to match the rest of the décor throughout your house. To make the process seem less daunting, here are some tips for choosing bedroom furniture.
Obviously, a bed is the most important piece of furniture in a bedroom. But remember that there are also other options. Futons are becoming more popular, and some people even find sleeping in a hammock quite pleasant. However, most people are still just opting to use beds.
When you’re choosing a bed, the bed frame is probably the most important and functional part. The best bed frames will be made of a composite plate and wire springs.
After you have chosen a bed frame, you will need to find a mattress to put on top of it. Mattresses come in a variety of levels of softness. Although most people think they will enjoy a firmer mattress, it turns out the most people actually prefer softer mattresses. Be sure to go to a mattress store and try a few out, so that you have a good idea of what your body prefers. Even if you’ll ultimately buy a mattress off of Craigslist or through a friend, trying out mattresses can never hurt.
You should also consider the size of mattress that will work for you. For instance, if you’re extremely tall, you might want a longer mattress. California king mattresses are a little longer, usually about 114” x 112”, while king size mattresses are just 110” x 106”. If you don’t share your bed, you might think a twin size mattress is the way to go, but keep in mind that full size mattresses are slightly wider and might offer more comfort. Here at Fiber Element we sell sheets in California King, King, Queen, and Full sizes, and will be adding the Twin size to our collection in September.
If your bedroom doesn’t have a built-in closet, or you’re not lucky enough to have a walk-in closet, you’ll probably want to purchase a wardrobe or armoire where you can hang your clothes. When choosing a wardrobe, you should select one that will allow your clothes to hang freely without touching the bottom. This will help you to keep your bedroom uncluttered and keep you feeling better.
If you have the space in your bedroom, it’s nice to have a nightstand to hold your alarm clock, a reading lamp, and maybe a few books or other decorations. That way you have a place to store items for easy access when you are in bed. If you can, choose a nightstand with a drawer or two so that you can store stuff in it and declutter your bedroom even further.
A dresser is a great option for storing clothes that you don’t want to hang up. Depending on how tall you are, you can choose a tall dresser, or a shorter, wider dresser. Regardless, be sure to choose a dresser with enough storage space that you won’t have to purchase yet another piece of furniture to make up for the room that you don’t have. You can also store decorations and other things on top of a dresser, or you could purchase a dresser with a mirror attached to the top that will help make your room feel bigger. This could be especially advantageous if you’re feeling cramped.
Choosing good bedroom furniture is one of the most important things you can do to make your bedroom as comfortable and inviting as possible. Well, maybe the most important thing besides purchasing bamboo sheets, because nothing is more comfortable than bamboo sheets. If you haven’t tried them out yet, don’t wait another minute. Here at Fiber Element we have the highest quality bamboo sheets available for an affordable price.
