Decorating with Wooden Furniture in a Bedroom
The bedroom may be one of the most important rooms in your house. It is a space that is not seen by many, yet it is where you spend a lot of time. This room will reflect you and your personality. On average, you will spend 8 or more hours a day in this one room of your house. That is why it is so important to create a space that is cozy, inviting and is uniquely you. There are many ways to achieve a trendy, yet functional space. And it all starts with the furniture.
When shopping for bedroom furniture, be mindful of the size of the room and how the room is going to be used. Maybe this is going to be an extra bedroom or maybe it will double as a home office, or possibly a TV room. This will dictate how the room will be decorated.
Once you have decided the function of the bedroom, now it is time to find the ideal furniture and style to complete the room. Finding the right style will create a cozy and inviting retreat from the daily grind. Utilizing a clean design and straight lines instead of oversized and cumbersome furniture will help to give a sense of openness to the room. Staying within the Contemporary or Modern styles of furniture will also achieve your desired look.
As with any bedroom, the bed is the focal point of the room. Choosing a bed that is made of solid wood is not just a beautiful choice, it is also a great investment. Your bed is a piece that will be used daily and will have a fair amount of wear and tear. A wooden bed will last years longer than one that is made from particle board and veneers. There are so many styles of bed from sleigh to four-poster to platform to beds that have a headboard and footboard.
Once you have the bed, now it is time to pull the rest of the room together. A bedside table and dresser are a must for any bedroom. Depending on your style, you may decide to purchase pieces that match the bed, or you may find that mixing styles or woods create a warm and interesting space. Although a dresser is adequate storage in most cases, a bedside table is great for additional storage in any bedroom. Purchasing these pieces in solid wood will guarantee that they will last and can be passed on for generations to come.
Now you have the bed, the dresser and a bedside table. What else could you possibly need in a bedroom? Well, if the room is going to double as a home office, you will definitely need a desk. Take into account the size of the room and the size of the other furniture. When setting up a home office that is doubling as a bedroom, you don’t want the pieces to compete with each other. If furniture compliments each other, then however the room is used, it will be comfortable and productive. Again, you will want to choose a desk that is made of solid wood to ensure that it will hold up to daily use. The longevity and beauty of solid wood furniture is just not something that can be achieved by pieces that are mass produced and made with materials that are not high quality.
The addition of a colorful rug, or sculptured lamps will compliment any type of wood furniture that you have decided on for your bedroom. Decorating a bedroom can be a fun and exciting way to express your style and personality.
