Bedrooms come in different shapes and sizes. Depending on who it’s for, the design can be as simple or elegant as you like. There’s a lot to think about – where will the bed be placed? What style do you want? What kind of mattress do you need? What colour should the bed linens and pillows be? What type of lighting is best? Do you want a headboard? A footboard? A nightstand?
Bedrooms can be as bare-bones as a mattress and a lamp, or as fully furnished as a pampering hotel suite. Whatever makes you feel most rested and restored is what you should put in your bedroom. Does it make you happy to have clutter contained? You might want a trunk to stow extra bedding. A vanity might ease the morning rush. A bench gives you a spot to comfortably put on shoes. Consider the following types of bedroom furniture to see what is right for your space. Please note: Information about armoires and wardrobes, bedroom sets, dressers, and nightstands and night tables is covered in separate buying guides.
