When you think of it, the bedroom is not made by the room design or the facilities available; it’s made up of the bedroom set. Your bedroom set is different from the bed set- the latter refers to the components that make up a bed such as the mattress, the frame, the headboard and the foot board. A bedroom set on the other hand, is an alternative reference to bedroom furniture. So what are the parts of a bedroom set?
First there is the bed. It’s the most important furniture piece in the bedroom, with all other pieces being arranged around it. A bed works best when it’s centrally placed in a room, as opposed to being set against a corner wall. The bed could be metallic or wooden. Metal beds are often the cheaper of the two, and they’re available in more designs that you can sufficiently sample. Wooden beds are the more common, and they’re bulkier and often have more sophisticated, more contemporary designs.
Another component of a bedroom set is the dresser. It’s a storage solution, albeit not the only one used in the bedroom. There are drawers, wardrobes and armoires that all serve a related purpose. They don’t all need to be free standing pieces of furniture. Some of them can be fitted into the wall. They free up more floor space and still providing a very versatile storage solution.
Other parts of a bedroom set include nightstands, vanities and trunks. These are not a necessity, though a nightstand is exempt from that bunch. It provides some space for setting up a bedside lamp, a book, or even a mobile phone. Vanities are often a part of the bathroom set, and need not be part of bedroom furniture, though in most cases it is.
Bedroom sets are usually sold together. That’s because the importance of having matching pieces of furniture is well understood. It simply works magic for the d’cor, and provides a sense of uniformity that makes the bedroom more attractive and inviting.
If it’s not possible to find a set that uses the same wood and finish, try to find one that at the very least, offers a uniform color scheme, or has a consistent style- such as contemporary, traditional, transitional and so on. And whenever possible, try purchasing your bedroom set together, as individual pieces of it are likely to be more expensive, as compared to when they are part of one package.
