Bedroom is one of the most important parts of the house because you will spend most of your time there. That is why the knowledge of how to furnish this room is essential for everyone, especially who is planning to build a new house or to renovate their rooms. With that in mind, we are here today to guide you through the basic of bedroom furnishing, starting with the first step below
- Decide the purpose of your bedroom
When we think about bedroom, we think of sleeping. However, not all of us limit ourselves to sleeping in our bedroom. We can read books, play video games or listen to music (I myself always watch TV in my bedroom instead of the living room just because I have much more privacy there). From there, you can list out what you need and what you do not need for your room which in turn will save you a lot time making selection.
- What is the color of your room?
After deciding on the purpose of your room, it’s time to coordinate your existing furniture with the list you have made above to narrow down your options. You can skip this step if you are going to buy everything new. However, if you want to add some new touches to your current room, then this is very necessary because you do not want some color mismatch in the room where you spend most of your relaxing time with. It will be hell.
- Personal style comes into play
Give a careful thought about what your personal style is. This is your house after all, and you want it to reflect who you are! If you love rustic style, use it as a guideline to make your purchase. If you like to feel like you are in the ocean, use it as a theme and apply it on all your future purchase.
- Stay within budget
Nothing is free in this world and the same rule applies to furniture. You do not want to overspend yourself which can leave you in red when other important things come up. However, you would not want to spend to little either because the best stuff does not come with small price.
Whether you have a big or small bedroom, you need to measure the length and the width of the room to see whether it can fit all the furniture you are going to buy. It is not a good thing to have to return what you have bought just because it does not fit into your room or it takes way too much space that it looks ridiculous.
- Here comes the Internet!
Before going to store to make your purchase, it is advisable to browse through the catalogs that stores have online to get a sense of what will fit your personal preference of your room. In addition, you can note down the price of each piece as well to make a spending plan.
- See what you are going to buy
After looking at what is available online, now it is the time for you to come to the retailers and look at what you like in person (sometimes what is presented in the picture online is not necessarily what you will get). In addition, if you are still deciding on whether you should buy a certain piece or not, this step will help you. You should ask again about the price, delivery and installation as well. Just in case you will have to set up the furniture alone, you will not be surprised.
