Are you in the market for bedrooms sets? Well, you probably have a massive variety of options. Knowing what to choose can sometimes get problematic, especially for people who are buying bedroom furniture for the first time.
But there is no need to worry. In this guide, we will give you all the information you need to find exactly what you are looking for.
Why Should You Buy a Full Bedroom Set?
Before we get to the step-by-step guide on buying these important pieces of bedroom furniture, let’s first all address the main questions.
Why even consider a full set? Well, there are two reasons. First, bedroom sets are designed to match each other. A traditional five-piece bedroom set usually comes with a bed and a headboard, a dresser, two nightstands, and a mirror.
All these elements are perfectly designed to deliver a consistent and beautiful look that eventually makes it easier for you to decorate the entire bedroom. Secondly, we all know how painful it can be trying to find different matching pieces of bedroom furniture.
Full bedroom sets take away this stress. With only one single purchase, you will easily get everything you need for your bedroom.
What Types of Bedroom Sets Are There?
There are three main types of bedroom sets to choose from. The first one is the more basic option and it features up to three pieces. This includes a bed and a headboard, a single dresser and a single nightstand.
The second option is the more expanded bedroom set.This one features all the pieces found in the basic set but may come with any of the following pieces:
- A second nightstand
- A bench
- Chest of drawers
The third and final option is the customizable bedroom set. In this set, there are no predetermined pieces. You get the freedom to pick the pieces you want. Normally, such sets will have the bed as the main anchor. The rest is totally up to you.
How to Choose the Best Bedroom Set?
Now that you have a small background on the types of bedroom sets and why they are ideal for you, it’s time to look at some of the steps you will need to take to find the right sets.
Here are some important factors to keep in mind:
- Size and Layout of Your Bedroom
The size of your bedroom and its layout will have a significant effect on the kind of bedroom furniture that you are going to buy.
The golden rule is to make sure you get basic pieces without necessarily cluttering your space. The layout, on the other hand, affects how the furniture will be arranged. The traditional square or rectangular rooms are often easier to decorate using full bedroom sets provided they are large enough.
But in case there are a few odd corners in the room, you may need to carefully choose a bedroom set to cater for this deficiency in layout. There is a saying in furniture shopping that goes, “measure twice, buy once.” All measurements on the room size need to be on your fingertips before buying the set.
Bedroom sets vary depending on who they are intended for. For example, if you are buying bedroom sets for kids, there are certain specific features you should be looking for. For instance, most parents prefer to bring bed sets that feature a playful and colorful finishing to match the bold décor scheme in the kids' bedroom.
But in case you are purchasing the set for the master bedroom, perhaps going with classier sets, featuring a refined more grown-up finish is a great idea.
- What’s Your Preferred Bed Size?
We all love to sleep in a large spacious bed. But sometimes we may be constrained either by the budget (which will be our next point) or the bedroom space.
There are five major bed sizes. The twin bed is often the smallest in terms of size while the California King is considered the largest.
A lot of people would prefer to buy beds in between these two. We are talking about the Twin XL, the Queen, or the King-sized options. Ultimately, you want to pick a bed size that is proportionate to your bedroom size and big enough to provide enough space to sleep.
Finally, it is also important to consider the style or finishing each set comes with. At the moment, there are four common styles to consider.
Here they are:
Modern Sets: These pieces normally feature a natural wood grain with stunning organic lines
Contemporary Sets: Contemporary sets will normally feature some clean lines. They may also come with a touch of glass and white tones.
Mission Sets: Also referred to as shaker sets, they feature simple lines. They also come with slat or panel headboards and may display a wood grain finish too.
Cottage Sets: This countryside inspired sets to have rustic features including a distressed natural wood grain finish, hand-painted detailing, or just some light-colored finishes.
Well, there you go. Buying quality bedroom sets that meet your needs doesn’t have to be a painful experience. The simple guide above should easily help you get exactly what you are looking for.
