Shopping for New Furniture Bedroom Sets

When it’s time to shop for new bedroom furniture, it’s time to head to The RoomPlace. And just how do you know that time is here? One of the most obvious is when you realize your bedroom suite has seen better days. Another is having growing children who need upgraded sleeping arrangements. A third is a desire to outfit a guest bedroom in style. There may be a few other reasons you’re shopping for bedroom furniture, and you’ll get the best results if you keep a number of tips in mind.

Bedrooms are private havens. As such, they need to cater to individual needs and not the needs of various people. This is a different mindset than you’d have when shopping for living room entertaining or feeding family and friends in the dining room.

Budget and size constraints are additional things to consider, as are a number of other questions you want to answer before bringing any new beds, armoires and dressers into your Indianapolis or Chicago home.

For instance, what furniture style will best suit the bedroom? How much storage space should the bedroom furniture facilitate? In the case of children’s rooms, how long should the furniture last? Determining these answers will guide you every step of the way while shopping for new bedroom furniture at The RoomPlace.

Bedroom Furniture: Start with the Bed

As the focal point of the bedroom, the bed sets the tone for the rest of the space. When deciding on the right type of frame, it’s helpful to understand the major types of furniture design to narrow your choices. Some of those choices include casual contemporary, traditional, country and modern.

If you’re in the market for an elegantly carved mahogany bed frame on spiraled feet, avoid contemporary and head toward traditional. Or if mid-century angles and clean lines ring your bell, make a beeline to modern bedroom furniture collections. For children’s bedrooms, the stylistic distinctions aren’t as sharp, but your child’s interests will be your guide. Think of what bedroom furniture best suits your child when deciding between the wrought iron canopy princess bed or a French provincial trundle bed.

Queen beds are the most popular size. Slightly larger than a full-sized bed but narrower than adjoining two twin beds, queen-sized beds offer 60 by 80 inches of slumbering space. These are perfect for older children and adults, but might prove too snug for couples. Sleep experts actually recommend that couples opt for a king bed, if possible, to minimize disturbances.

Purchase new mattresses and box springs at least every 10 years to ensure that you’re getting adequate anatomical support throughout the night. If it’s time for a new mattress for your Chicago or Indianapolis bedroom, browse the selection of mattresses on sale at one of The RoomPlace stores throughout Illinois and Indiana.

Bedroom Storage Furniture

While king size-beds offer ample square footage beneath the box springs to hide away heaps of clutter, that probably isn’t the smartest organizational move to make. Trundle beds for children and frames with under-bed drawers are optimal for bedrooms lacking spacious closets. These space savers are camouflaged in the bedroom design, maximizing precious open floor space.

One of the most convenient aspects of shopping for new bedroom furniture is being able to pick out storage units that directly complement the bed. Bedroom dresser sets often include a headboard and footboard. You’ll also find bedroom furniture collections that come with a nightstands, armoires and chests designed in corresponding motifs. But even if you can’t bring home the entire collection, just a couple of pieces can renovate the look of any bedroom. With an updated bed frame and a stunning bedroom dresser, you have the essential starting elements for your perfect domestic sanctuary. Update that sanctuary now with bedroom set pieces from The RoomPlace.
