Bedroom Furniture and Design Basics

The bedroom serves a very specific function in your home – a space for sleep and relaxation. It is a place to retreat and regroup after a hectic day. It is for this reason that you often see bedrooms designed with soothing colors and furniture that minimizes distractions. Below are some guidelines for turning your bedroom into a true comfort zone.

Bedroom Furniture

Make the most of your space with your bedroom furniture placement. The size of your bedroom will be the guiding force behind how much bedroom furniture you will need. There are some musts: bed, dresser, bedside tables, and lamps are the bare minimum.

It’s unavoidable, the bed is both the focal point and the most important piece of bedroom furniture. It is also the most important design element in the space. Since the bed is the largest piece of furniture in the bedroom, begin by placing it first. The most common places for the bed are across from the door or along the longest wall. If you have a great view, be sure to take advantage of it by placing your bed in such a way that you can see the view as you wake up each morning. In fact, the view or windows can be considered an important design element.

Then, decide where you want to place the dresser, generally across from the bed, but this will depend on the amount of space you have. Now that the larger pieces of bedroom furniture have been placed, you can decide if you want to add a chair or bench at the foot of the bed or a sitting area if you have the space. If you have the space, a comfortable chair, vanity, or a small sofa are nice additions.

Choose the Right Mattress

But beyond the looks of the headboard and bedframe, you’ll want to choose a mattress that gives you a comfortable night’s sleep. Speak to a sales professional and take advantage of the Kingsdown bedMATCH™ technology to help you find the best fit for you. After lying on the test bed for 3 minutes, the technology uses your personal profile information and more than 1,000 calculations to determine which mattress will give you the best support. Bedding makes your room complete, so choose those that complement your design theme and color palette.

Bedroom Lighting

Lighting can set the mood, and the mood you want here is relaxation. Keep the lighting soft, subtle, and easy to turn on and off. Add lamps to the bedside tables if you like to read at night. If you tend to fall asleep with the lights on, use a light with a timer. Not only does this save energy, it also conducive to getting a better night’s sleep. Pendant lamps, chandeliers, sconces, and table lamps are all good choices for bedroom lighting.


Always the finishing touch, add accessories. This is also where you can play. Add an area rug, throw pillows, and a grouping of pieces from collections you own. Put these items in your line of site so that you can see them first thing in the morning. That will get your day off to a great start.
