A complete bedroom set offers homeowners a wealth of benefits. For one, you know with certainty that the individual pieces making up the set will work well together. You also have a core aesthetic to style the rest of the room around. Plus, you’ll only encounter one delivery fee and, in most cases, just one delivery slot — which means there will be no need to sit around over multiple days waiting for individual packages to trickle in.

If you’ve been lured in by the perks of buying a bedroom set, but you’re still determining which combination or style to opt for, you’ve come to the right place. Here, we’re breaking down some core fundamentals of choosing the right bedroom set for your home.

Consider Your Storage Needs

Before you begin to think about aesthetics, first consider your storage requirements. Most solid wood bedroom sets come in a variety of combinations. What individual pieces would you benefit from, and how much bedroom storage do you need?

Combination options between bedroom sets can vary greatly. For example, you could get a closet, a dresser, and two side tables. Maybe one side table, a larger dresser, plus a closet would work best for you. Or perhaps you’d like a bed with built-in storage? Knowing your needs will greatly help you as you begin to narrow down your choice.

Before you invest in a bedroom set, purge your closets and dressers first, taking the time to clear out (and donate) clothing and accessories that you no longer wear.

Think About the Size of the Room

Investing in a bedroom set that overwhelms the bedroom, or fades into the background, is sure to disappoint. Measure the room and sketch a floor plan using a computer or pen and paper before placing your order.

Think about the room from all angles, making sure to factor in ceiling height and bed placement. For example, if you have a view of beautiful scenery out your window, you’ll likely want your bed to face the window to take advantage of striking vistas. Make sure the size and shape of your bedroom set will loan itself to a placement like this.

In addition to the physical size of the furniture, the style of furniture can also affect the perceived scope of the room. Large, chunky furniture can close a small room in, whereas more delicate furniture can open it up.

So if you have a large room that you’d like to add a layer of depth to, lean into chunky statement furniture, and if you have a smaller space that you’d like to spatially enhance, opt for subtler, spindlier pieces.

Consider Aesthetics

Think about aesthetics. Of course, you’ll want to find a bedroom set that suits your tastes and design preferences, but it’s also important to think about how the colour and the style will affect the mood and vibe of the space.

For example, rich dark woods, though opulent, can make a room look small. Whereas light and airy oak and white pine can brighten a room — giving the illusion of more space.

The Bottom Line

Investing in a bedroom set is an immediate boost for those looking to increase their storage needs, maximize the visual spacing of a room, and craft a cohesive, calming refuge.

By factoring in the size of the space and how the style of furniture may affect it, you’re sure to find a bedroom set that will fulfill your storage needs while indulging your design wants for many years to come.
