HOW TO CHOOSE THE IDEAL BEDROOM FURNITUREOn July 26, 2017 by AntiqueAdmin
Shopping and selecting new bedroom furniture is both thrilling and overwhelming; thrilling, because who does not love new things and a new look? And yet overwhelming, because furniture is costly and the fear of making a mistake can be overpowering.
Fortunately, choosing the ideal furniture for your needs is much easier and simpler if you will ask yourself these few questions before going to the showroom.
Where Will the Furniture Go?
Are you purchasing new furniture for your own master bedroom? Or is this for a kid’s room or a makeover for a youngster’s bedroom? Or perhaps you’re decorating a designated guest bedroom for expected visitors. Obviously, the right furniture is appropriate to the user of the room, both in style and design.
What’s Your Budget?
It is ok to look around– in fact, that is the best way to see what the available option is – but it’s not wise to actually make a purchase before knowing just what you can afford. Furniture is very expense, so be honest with yourself before pulling out your credit card. If your dreams are huge, but your bank account is small, you have several options:
- Buy just one new piece of furniture for now, and wait until you can afford to buy the rest
- Shop for second-hand furniture
- Go for lower quality – but also lower priced – furniture if you will use it for a guest bedroom or a child’s room
What about Quality?
Clearly, you do not want rubbish furniture that will fall apart within a few months. However that does not mean you have to have the absolute high quality designer brands either. Your budget plays a big role in deciding the level of quality you can afford, but so does the planned use of the furniture. It is absolutely worth spending more for top quality furniture for your master bedroom, but fine to go down a notch or two for a kid’s bedroom set that will be replaced within a few years or so.
It is always worth indulging within your means for a high-quality mattress, but not always worth it for a nightstand, headboard or bench for the foot of the bed.
How Big is the Room?
If you’re decorating a small bedroom, it does not make any sense at all to buy a huge four-poster bed or a massive dresser. Also, if you are lucky enough to have a substantial room size, do not choose undersize or too few pieces of furniture. Scale is vital for a really well-decorated room; that means that the size of the furniture needs to be in balance with the size of your room space. And whenever you purchase new furniture for any room in yo9ur home, be sure it can make it to its destination before signing the purchase order. You do not want to discover that the new dresser will not make it around the hallway corner or through the bedroom doorway the hard way.
