When clients come into our store looking for new bedroom furniture sets, I always tell them to keep an open mind as they walk around the show room because you may not realize what you want for the space until you see it right in front of you. I can't tell you how many people I have seen come through requesting contemporary black bedroom sets then actually purchasing a white cottage chic suite, and vice versa. Also bear in mind, that the items you choose will look very different in the actual setting of your home as opposed to the showroom floor. King bedroom sets especially seem much smaller in the store than they do when you get them into your house. With that being said, measure, measure, measure! I cannot stress the important of getting the most accurate measurements possible before settling on a large bed or dresser.
Bedroom furniture sets are one of those challenging pieces to select because they really provide the foundation to the design of your room. Not only that, but they generally are not replaced frequently due to their cost so you are really stuck with the same set for years to come. For this reason, I tend to gravitate towards white bedroom furniture because it accommodates nearly any decor style or color palette and can constantly be transformed by the linens and artwork that you pair with it. This beautiful guest bedroom shows just how versatile these pieces can be. A simple upholstered headboard paired with a neutral white arm chair of the same fabric can take on any style depending on the type of bedding sets & collections that you choose. Here they used contemporary navy pieces, but you could easily add blush pink pillows for a softer look.
I love traditional bedroom furniture sets that give a historical feel to the home. To me, there is nothing more classic than a dark cherry bed with paneled nightstand and brass accents. It has an elegant and stately feel that works well with a wide variety of color schemes and fabric options. Right now our space is quite bare other than the rich black bedroom furniture and a few arm chairs. As you can see, the base of our bed linens is plain white but I do plan to bring in some color and pattern through pillows, throws, and curtains. Of course no bedroom sets are complete without a nice armoire but, instead of purchasing the one that goes with our set, I decided to get this coordinating antique hutch instead to serve as both a small desk area as well as a place to store clothes.
Many people these days are focused on trying to fit king sized bedroom furniture sets into their rooms, despite the actual size of the space. Sometimes queen bedroom sets work much better with the scale of your room, and really do not feel all that much different than a king. Take this room, for example. Originally, our client had been looking at a large upholstered king size bed to put on this wall. Obviously, that would have made for a very cramped room and a overwhelmed design. Instead, I steered them towards this lovely minimalist paneled queen bed with matching slim night stands. Then rather than bringing heavy design in from the furniture, we turned to the bed decoration (linens, throw pillows, etc) to provide most of the style. It fit much better with the scale and shape of the room.
Bedroom furniture sets are an essential component of your design because they really set the style and tone for the space. I tend to play it save when selecting bedroom furniture because it is often by far the most expensive component of the room so you want it to be able to take on a wide variety of styles and color palettes if you decor tastes change over the years. In my opinion, you can never go wrong with king size bedroom sets in a nice neutral shade of fabric or wood. These can accommodate any size person and look great with any shade of accent color. My personal favorite look to do in a bedroom, is an all white palette with pops of cool greys and blues like this room. The white armchairs and upholstered bed are the perfect backdrop to the plush textiles they chose.
It is so important to choose the right bedroom furniture sets in kids rooms, because you want them to be versatile enough to grow with them (so you don't have to repurchase every few years) as well as finished in a color scheme that can take on a variety of styles as their interests change over the years. When I am looking for kids bedroom furniture for a client, I tend to opt for upholstered headboards that can be recovered every few years as the decor as updated. I pair this with classic and sturdy wood pieces that will last until their teenage years and beyond. Of course you can always change up the knobs or feet to better coordinate with girls or boys bedroom ideas depending on what you need but, overall, I find them to be the most versatile option.
