Buying Bedroom Furniture: Three Things You’ll Be Glad You’ve Done First

When remodeling your bedroom, don’t be tempted to leave these three key stages to chance. Get these right and you’ll have a great new bedroom without the tears!

1.Get a budget:

Blowing all your cash on a fantastic mirror or designer curtains and cushions will leave you precious little when you need somewhere to stash your stuff or get a good night’s sleep. Decide on your priorities. What is the most important purchase and what can you save on. A good quality mattress is without doubt the first priority, don’t skimp on this, it’s a false economy. You’ll be looking for a new one in a year or so if you get it wrong whereas a good mattress will last years.

2. Measure the size of the room:

Falling in love with a sleigh bed or an antique armoire will only break your heart if you can’t squeeze it in through the door of the bedroom or up the stairs to your 3rd floor apartment. make sure that you know the dimensions of your current furniture if you have any, to give you an idea of what can be placed in your bedroom. If you want someting large, don’t forget the flat pack option.

3. Work out your storage and sleeping needs:

If you have tons of stuff to store have a clear out first so you don’t spoil your new room with clutter. Then work out a plan for storage based on what’s left. Now you know your storage needs.

If you or your partner are really tall then you have some very specific needs that need to be a priority when designing the way your bedroom works. If you are really tall, remember that a bed should allow 5-6inches extra in length for you to be able to get a restful night’s sleep. You may need to look at a longer bed if you are taller than five foot eight inches.

Now you know exactly what you need, the fun part can begin. depending on your budget there a thousands or bedroom furniture stores to trawl for your ideal bedroom and if you want to be creative you can buy and renovate used furniture as well. Whatever style you choose your bedroom furniture, when chosen well, will serve you for many years to come.

The Wardrobe Armoire: A Touch of Elegance

In these modern times, it’s not just furniture but nearly every item for the home that is mass produced in its design,Armoire Wardrobe (660 x 1023) leaving options for home decor sometimes feeling bland and less than stellar. In other words, it can be a challenge finding items that compliment your homes design and your personality rather than water it down into something that feels all too familiar, a kind of deja va remorse felt at the loss of unique furniture items due to mass production.

With the exception of using antique wardrobe closets, I won’t pretend that modern day armoire furniture isn’t mass produced too, but there is a certain quality to its design and intention that, to me, sets it a part from much of the other furniture sold these days. I think the fact that any armoire, by its very definition of being an armoire, consists of actual wood is the first step in pushing it out of the bounds of normal bland furniture. Furthermore, the market for wardrobe armoire furniture is hungry for quality, and is often not too concerned with the price, which leads to the wood being high quality wood, often with striking finishes in cherry or oak. On top of this, the wood may feature an enhanced design, lending it a touch of elegance.

Because of these differences in its materials, design, and construction in contrast to furniture sold, at say, stores such as Target or Home Depot (mostly), the wardrobe armoire stands in a class of its own. There’s a real feeling of class associated with them, and it’s not just the price tag either. A wardrobe armoire is something that can last for generations and become a family heirloom, much like the antique wardrobe closets you see today that were constructed 200 years ago but are still going strong. Can you say the same for any of the wooden stand alone closets furniture for sale at most stores today?

Unfortunately, no, which then makes the wardrobe armoire all that much more special and unique.
