Pull your room together with a bedroom set
Consider the fact that you will spend approximately one-third of your life in bed, and it makes sense to set up your bedroom as your sanctuary for relaxation, using comfortable furniture that you love and colors that promote rest and peacefulness. A great place to start is with a beautiful, comfortable bedroom set that provides you with the storage and style you need to feel together and at ease.
Bedroom Set Basics
Elegant bedroom sets can make a dramatic statement in your bedroom. A bedroom set consists of some combination of these pieces of furniture:
The bed in a bedroom set can be twin, extra-long twin, full, queen, king or California king in size. Often bedroom sets are referred to using the size of the bed, as in "queen bedroom set" or "king bedroom set."
The first step to selecting a bedroom set is to set a budget, as these pieces of furniture can vary greatly in price. After setting a budget, the next step is to carefully measure the bedroom — be sure to mark the location of doors and windows. Then, start to consider style and decor. You may like to keep the style of the bedroom set in line with the decorating styles in other rooms, or you may prefer to break away and set up the bedroom in an entirely different manner. For those who prefer contemporary looks, a modern bedroom set may be the perfect choice. Other people prefer the charm of an antique bedroom set. Whatever your preference, bedroom sets are available in almost any style you can imagine.
Bedroom sets come in a variety of materials; consider your budget and your lifestyle when choosing the best material for your bedroom furniture. For instance, a child's bedroom set must be sturdy to withstand the wear and tear a child will inflict upon it. Options in materials include:
- Engineered wood or medium density fiberboard (MDF)
- Wood veneers
- Marble veneers
- Tempered glass
- Wrought iron
Some people prefer purchasing a matching bedroom set with coordinating pieces, which often results in a lower price than buying each piece separately. Others prefer a more eclectic look, with bedroom pieces purchased separately that don't necessarily match.
How to Buy Bedroom Sets
Furniture retailers offer a selection of furniture, ranging from cheap bedroom sets to expensive, hand-crafted items. It pays to shop around to determine what is available at different price points. A professional designer can help with high-end bedroom furniture, and at the other end of the spectrum, Craigslist can be a wonderful resource for bargain bedroom sets or individual pieces.
