Whether you’re moving into a new home with a bigger bedroom, or spring cleaning put you in the mood to update your look, redecorating your bedroom takes a little research and care to make sure you choose furniture you’ll be happy with. Here are a few tips on how to find the best bedroom furniture set that you’ll love for years to come.
Know What You Need
First things first: What will be the purpose of the bedroom set? You may have different priorities depending on whether you’re buying for your bedroom, a kids’ bedroom, or a guest room. Kids’ bedroom sets should be durable to withstand the wear and tear of childhood, but probably also less expensive, since they’ll likely outgrow the furniture in a few years. Guest room furniture can focus more on style and less on functionality since it won’t be used as frequently. In your own bedroom, on the other hand, you’ll likely want both style and functionality, especially things like extra storage pieces if two people are using it.
Keep Your Style in Mind
All practical considerations aside, you will also want to give some thought to your personal style and the style of your decor. Whether you prefer a traditional look, or something more modern or minimalist, you’ll want to have a good idea of what you’re looking for before you step foot in a store. Choose a style that will go with the rest of the furniture in your home. If you like to change your bedding occasionally, pick a fairly neutral furniture set so that it will go with whatever you choose when you redecorate.
If you’re not sure what style you want your bedroom set to be, you can browse Pinterest and interior decorating magazines until you get a sense of what you like and what you don’t. It makes sense to start your search online, but once it’s time to buy, turn off the computer and head into the store. Color, texture, size, and other details may appear dramatically different on a computer screen than they do in person. Your impressions of the furniture can even vary! Some decisions are simply best made in person.
Plan Your Budget
Going shopping without any idea of your budget is a good way to get in trouble, so make sure to plan out your finances before browsing Colorado furniture stores. Determine how much you have to spend and whether you want to charge or finance any of your purchase. If money is tighter than you would like, think about whether you want to buy just some of the furniture now, and get the rest down the line to break a large purchase up into several more manageable expenses.
Closely tied to the subject of your budget is the issue of quality. The better quality your furniture, the longer it will last. A high-quality bedroom set might be the last bedroom furniture you ever have to buy, and if your tastes change, it’ll retain some resale value when you decide to buy new furniture.
In general, you should buy the best quality that your budget will support. If this is difficult to do with your budget, you might consider tricks such as buying a few individual pieces to start.
Last but certainly not least of these bedroom furniture set buying tips, you’ll want to measure everything. This means not just the bedroom, but also the spaces where you plan to put everything, such as the measurements between windows or vents if these figure into your plan for the bedroom. If you have your old furniture in the bedroom, measure all of it to get an idea of what fits.
Don’t also forget to consider how you’re getting your furniture into your bedroom. Measure all doorways, hallways, stairwells, and tight corners along the path to the bedroom to make sure you don’t find the perfect furniture, just to find out it won’t make it through the door.
