Beds and bedroom furniture
Choosing bedroom furniture is as important as choosing beds.
Unless you are really into the minimalist look, you'll want more than a bed in your bedroom. Although today's beds can be works of art in their own right, you still need somewhere to store your clothes, toiletries and other items. How do you decide which furniture goes with the bed you choose?
You may already have fitted furniture in your room. If you've been looking at beds that match this furniture, you may have narrowed your choices too much. Consider changing the doors, or even just painting them to give your room a fresh look. If you're installing fitted furniture as part of your new bedroom, think very carefully about where you want it and what you want to include - you can't move it round when you get fed up. Many people have fitted wardrobes and cupboards built around their beds, but this many not work with the style of bed you have in mind.
There are lots of sets of bedroom furniture on the market - beds that come with matching bedside tables, wardrobes and drawers. You can often choose from a range of complementary pieces, so you can have as much or as little of the style as you want. Check whether the range is going to continue for some time - that way, you can always add to your collection when your budget allows.
Many people like to find their own style of furniture. Once you've chosen your bed, you might want to hunt in salvage yards, antique shops and independent furniture stores for exactly the right piece. You may have to renovate, re-upholster or repaint the furniture you find, so be prepared to put some effort in to achieve the desired effect. As long as you choose furniture that works with the style of room you have and the type of bed you've ordered, you can create a unique, personal room.
Whether you're working with existing furniture, or looking for something new, don't forget that the bed's probably the most important piece in your bedroom. Choose it first, before you spend your hard-earned money on other furniture.
