Bedroom Furniture Buying Guide

Bedroom Furniture Buyer's Guide

With so many different styles of bedroom furniture available, deciding on the right set for your room can be a daunting task. However, there are a few ways you can narrow down your options when it comes to finding an affordable bedroom collection that meshes well with your preferences.

Bedroom Set Styles

There are two primary style categories when it comes to bedroom furniture: contemporary and traditional. It is advisable to choose a style of bedroom furniture that compliments the rest of your home's design scheme, so take careful stock of the other design elements in your home before deciding on a specific bedroom set.

Traditional bedroom furniture is typically characterized by ornate designs and heavy, handcrafted hardwood construction. Homelegance's 'Bastille' bedroom collection displays some of the common hallmarks of traditional style bedroom furniture: warm brown cherry finish with antiqued brass hardware. If you're looking to add bold character and valiant personality to your bedroom, a traditional-styled bedroom set will be perfect for your needs.

On the other side of the style spectrum is contemporary bedroom furniture. Contemporary bedroom collections incorporate modern design elements, clean lines, and neutral color schemes. If you are looking for a simpler and more minimalistic design, you'll most likely want to look at contemporary-styled bedroom sets. The Osten bedroom collection from Home Elegance is a stunning example of the straightforward and simplistic linear design that most contemporary furniture pieces love to incorporate. Notice how the soft merlot finish smoothes out the edges and gives this bedroom collection an even cleaner look.

Can't decide between contemporary and traditional bedroom collections' For those that want the best of both worlds, some companies have created hybrid bedroom sets that are a creative mix between traditional and contemporary styles. The Homelegance Terra bedroom collection is a great example of traditional bedroom furniture with a unique contemporary flair.

Why Should I Purchase a Bedroom Collection

Purchasing a bedroom collection allows you to streamline the process of buying all of the necessary furniture to outfit your room. Instead of shopping for a variety of independent pieces and risking design mismatches, its much easier to purchase a pre-made bedroom set that has all of the pieces you need fashioned in an identical style.

Most bedroom collections come with a bed (full, queen, or king-sized), night stand, dresser, mirror, chest, and armoire. If you'd like additional pieces of bedroom furniture, there are a whole host of bedroom accessories that are available to help bolster your layout.

Vanity mirrors, benches, and additional nightstands or mirrors are a great way to add to your bedroom collection. Most retailers offer a huge variety of products and styles to choose from. Your only problem should be making a final decision among all of the pieces of like!
