Your bedroom is one of the most personal spaces that you would be giving yourself and your partner. It should therefore represent more of your personality trait than any other room of your house. It should have all the comfort and luxury that would help you rejuvenate and relax but would also have enough space to address all your personal belongings that you would not be confident enough to place in any other room of the house.
If you want to design the bedroom of your dream home, you cannot leave out these essential essentials. These are items that most people overlook when furnishing their new homes. However, if you take a closer look, you will be surprised to find out how vital they are to the overall appearance of your bedroom.
Here are the 7 essentials your bedroom must-have.
(1). The bed
The bed is one of the main focal points of the room. You need to choose the right bed frames to complement the overall design and theme of the room. The bed frames are the items that need to be given the most thought. The type of wood, frame style, size, and color will depend on the general theme you wish to portray in the room. Beds come in different sizes to suit different needs. On average bed frames are 16 to 24 inches wide. Larger beds often fit into little extra space, making it easier to squeeze in other furniture or accessories. Smaller beds are ideal for limited space, which is perfect for a home that has not enough space to accommodate other larger pieces of furniture such as couches, chests of drawers, dressers, and even cabinets.
While choosing a bed frame you must also consider the height of the bed frame which can be done easily by sitting on the side and checking the level of the knees to the hip. Your hips should be in the similar line as your knees and your feet should be well bound on the floor. The color and style of the bed frame will depend greatly on the overall decor of the room. You can go with a traditional bed frame made of oak, cherry, maple, or any other natural wood. Or you can opt for a metal bed frame that can blend well with the overall interior design scheme of your room. Metal bed frames are also more durable than wooden ones, making them a good choice for those who have children.
(2). The comforter
Comforter is a thick and big sack of fabric quilted with fluffy fibers such as silk, down, wool cotton, or polyester. It is ideally thicker than a duvet and is used by maximum households who usually own a quality mattress. Choosing a comforter can be a difficult task at hand. The easiest way to do this is to check the labels attached to the bedding and your mattress size. Queen size comforters with a length of 81 to 88 inches and a width of 86 to 100 inches are considered full comforters as they are perfect for a queen-size mattress and above beds but might be too long for standard full-size beds.
(3). A chest of drawers
A chest of drawers can make a bedroom look more organized, but without one, it is very difficult to store things in your room. Bed frames with built-in cabinets can solve this problem. It is an ideal place to squirrel away your most prized possessions. It’s your own private space that you can also use as an art stand where you can place a simple piece or prized art for display as well, to avoid prying eyes at your possessions
Bottom of Form
Dressers come in various styles and sizes and matching them with bed frames is easy to do. The right combination can look more like a complete set rather than separate pieces. Dressers with mirrored surfaces are also popular choices.
Shelves for books and magazines are a must, whether you prefer to have these placed on a display shelf at the end of the bed or stacked up high on the bed itself. If you have children, a chest of drawers placed at the foot of the bed can be a great way to keep their things from flying all over the place when they get out of bed.
(6). Storage space for kids
Additional storage space is an absolute must. For kids, it is common for them to have things such as video games, DVDs, and books that they simply cannot seem to organize. You can make life easier by putting these items under the bed in a dresser or even better, in a chest. chests come in different sizes and styles and can have drawers, shelves, or even be part of the bed itself. It depends on what your bedroom design is like and what you think is necessary.
Apart from all the above-mentioned decorative essentials of a bedroom, your bedroom should have extra pieces of comfortable furniture to sit on. You can get a chair or an ottoman or a bench where you can relax and have your zone where you can converse with your partner or just simply enjoy your early morning newspaper and coffee.
Making the right choice?
The above are only a few of the many space-saving essentials that you should incorporate into your bedroom. If you don’t feel like making a big change, then keep it simple. The basics are usually all that is needed, that is a bed frame, a comfortable mattress, and pillows. The important thing is to choose wisely. Once you have gone through this entire list, you will be much better off when you start designing your bedroom. Of course, the furniture that you buy for your bedroom must match the overall style and decor of the house. If you have light-colored furniture, then you don’t want to buy dark ones. This works just fine too. Some people even go as far as decorating their bedroom with matching sets of furniture for each color of the rainbow. If that’s the case, then you’ll probably want to get a twin-size bed for twins. Just make sure that the furniture you get is of good quality and will last you for a long time.
When it comes to bedroom design, a little planning goes a long way. Be careful about overdoing it when it comes to colors, but don’t be afraid to be bold. After all, bold colors often say more than darker ones. In addition to that, you can also add accessories, such as storage units, bookshelves, lamps, and mirrors, to make the room look a lot more spacious.
