6 Things That You Should Know Before Your Buy A Bedroom Furniture
Unless you’ve moved a lot, it’s likely that you’ve only bought bedroom furniture once or twice in your life. As a result, when it’s time to upgrade your bedroom furniture, the task can appear daunting. What is a chifferobe, exactly? What’s the difference between a chest and a dresser? What’s the difference between a nightstand and a bedside chest? How do you even begin to select the appropriate bedroom furniture? The following are six factors to consider:
1. Ample space
Before you start shopping for white and oak chest of drawers, the first crucial thing to do is measure your space. Review our previous blog post for more information on how to choose the proper size furniture for your home.
Next, decide on a design style for your new bedroom furniture. Have you ever fantasized of sleeping in a stately, traditional sleigh bed? Would modern furniture’s basic, clean lines completely suit your trendy style? Do you favor pieces that are more transitional, or do you prefer more traditional pieces? Consider how the new furniture will complement the design of your bedroom as well as any existing furniture, fixtures, or decor.
3. Bed Alternatives
Try to think about what kind of headboard and footboard options are best for you before you fall in love with a particular design of bed. Is a high headboard going to block a window? Would a low footboard allow you to extend your lengthy legs more? Do you dislike having to tuck your blankets neatly at the foot of your bed, so a high footboard appeals to you? Consider these factors ahead of time to help you focus your furniture shopping.
Purchasing new bedroom furniture is an excellent opportunity to reconsider not only the style of bed you desire, but also the size. If you’ve decided that a different size would be better for you, don’t forget to include in the cost of a new mattress in your budget.
4. Nightstands and Chests of Drawers
Nightstands, in addition to a bed and mattress, are possibly the most crucial items of bedroom furniture. Consider them a crucial addition to your bed. Nightstands are useful for storing items like as phones, books, and alarm clocks, as well as providing a convenient location for bedside lighting. In a master bedroom, you’ll need two nightstands—one on either side of the bed—so make sure there’s enough room for both.
You may come across both nightstands and alongside chests while looking for furniture. What’s the difference between the two? While they are generally similar in width, nightstands are usually shorter and include a combination of drawers on top and cabinet-style doors or open space below. Bedside chests are taller, with multiple single-column drawers for storage.
5. Armoires, Chests, and Dressers
How can you know which pieces are best for your room when there are so many options? It often boils down to space and what works best for your storage requirements.
Chests are usually higher than they are wide, so they’re a good choice if you’re short on room. They come in a variety of heights and usually include 5-7 drawers stacked in a single column.
Dressers are wider than they are tall, and they look great when paired with a mirror. Dressers normally contain two to three columns of drawers, with three to four rows of drawers per column for a total of six to nine drawers. When two individuals need to share a dresser, it’s better than a chest because the columns make it easier to divide (you get this half, I get that half).
Chifferobes and Armoires
If you need more space to hang your clothes, armoires or chifferobes are ideal choices. A rack for hanging clothing is usually included, as well as drawers or shelves for storing and sorting folded items. Similarly, gentleman’s chests usually have a combination of hanging and drawer space.
Putting multiple pieces together
Individual pieces can sometimes be combined to form a larger unit if you have the space, as illustrated in the photo accompanying this article, where a six-drawer chest is flanked by two lingerie chests for a total of 18 drawers.
6. Media Services
Media chests are an excellent option for TV storage in the bedroom because they often have space for a DVD or Blu-ray player as well as cord access slots. Media chests are often shorter than ordinary chests, allowing you to maintain your television at a comfortable viewing height. If you don’t have enough room for a media chest, you can also put a television above a dresser or media shelf.
