How to Create the Perfect Bedroom
Designing the perfect bedroom can be overwhelming—after all, there’s a lot to consider—and while size and layout are important, furniture selection is crucial to creating that cohesive feel you’ll always be comfortable around. If you’re wondering where to start, look no further than Industry West. Our expansive catalog of high-quality bedroom furniture is perfect for creating the ideal sleeping space without sacrificing your budget. Follow us as we delve into our most popular bedroom furniture pieces and show you how to easily create the perfect bedroom.
Pick a Great Color Scheme
One of the first things to consider when creating the perfect bedroom is your color scheme, and that doesn’t just go for the walls! Colorful furniture is a quintessential way to add character to your space while setting the overarching tone. Are you looking for calming and relaxing? How about a bedroom that's a little more vibrant? Some important things to consider before you decide are the size of your room and the amount of natural light it gets—it’s amazing how colors vary depending on the light! If you want to create a serene bedroom space, light colors like white or cream are always our go-to. If you’re looking for something a little more exciting, try a bolder shade like blue or green.
We always suggest choosing a primary color to focus your design around, but don’t be afraid to go bold with your accent colors! A little color goes a long way in making your bedroom feel like your own personal oasis.
Decide on a Furniture Layout
With your color scheme in mind, it’s time to move to the layout. Your furniture layout depends largely on the size of your room and how you want to use the space. For cozy, intimate spaces, place your bed in the corner of the room. If you’re looking for an open design, try moving your bed to the center of a wall.
For those early morning risers who don’t mind the glow, face your bed toward a window so that morning sunrise is the first thing you see. Deciding where you want to place supporting furniture is always a challenge, but remember that you want to consider convenience as much as design for some of your most used pieces.
Pick a Great Bed
Your bed is the centerpiece of your bedroom, so it’s important to pick one you not only love, but one that is sturdy and timeless. Industry West offers a tailored selection of quality bed frames in an array of styles and materials so you can find your perfect bedroom showstopper.
As the focal point of your room, your bed should fit your personal style. For example, if you’re going for a traditional look, try a four-poster bed with drapes. For a lower-profile look, a platform bed frame is a great addition to the space and a very popular option.
If you’re looking for a wooden bed with timeless style and plenty of storage space, try our Nordic Bed. For those after something a bit more modern, the Madra Bed exudes clean lines that won’t overpower the rest of your furniture.
After deciding on a style, it’s time to pick the size. In our opinion, bigger is always better, but do what your space allows! For those of you planning on sharing a bed with someone, you’ll want to make sure you both have enough space. A queen or king-size bed usually does the trick, but we never discount a comfortable California king. If you’re looking for a bed that takes up less space, a twin or full-size frame works perfectly.
If you have the room to accommodate a larger bed frame, Industry West has a stunning selection of queen-size beds and king-size beds to choose from.
Add Some Throw Pillows
No bedroom is complete without a few throw pillows—depending on your definition of a few. Aside from adding color and texture to your space, they also add comfort to the room. Pick some that complement your color scheme and add visual interest to the space.
Pick a Great Dresser
If you’re dreaming of a walk-in closet that you can do flips in, you’re not alone—we would definitely love the space. If those dreams aren’t quite a reality yet, chances are you’re looking for extra storage essential for your bedroom. Dressers and chests of drawers are the perfect addition to your space, serving both style and function. Store your clothes, linens, and other belongings with ease while upgrading your room’s design.
Much like bed size, the size of your dresser will depend on the size of your room and how much storage you need. Larger bedrooms can accommodate larger dressers and typically do well with a horizontal, 6-drawer orientation like our Venice Six Drawers. If space is tight and you want more walking room, vertical chests use height to their advantage, like our Oslo Five Drawer Dresser.
The style of your dresser should complement the rest of your bedroom, especially since it serves as a décor piece of its own. For traditional bedrooms, try a dresser with classic lines and simple hardware. If you want to add a touch of “modern” to your space, a dresser with clean lines and sleek hardware may be in your future. As always, don’t be afraid to incorporate bold elements into your room like our low profile Graphic Chest of Drawers.
Pick a Perfect Nightstand
When it comes to essential bedroom furniture, the nightstand is at the top of our list. Though often small, nightstands are tangential to your bed’s overall look and serve as the perfect place to put a lamp, alarm clock, or any other item you may need within arm’s reach.
If you guessed that the style of your nightstand should complement the style of your bed and dresser, you’d be right! For a sleek, cohesive look, we recommend matching wood finish or metal details, however, if you love the eclectic look as we do, don’t be afraid to add vibrance, character, and texture.
The size of your nightstand may vary depending on your space and storage needs. Nightstands with multiple drawers tend to fit well in larger bedrooms, while smaller spaces thrive with a one-drawer or wall-mounted option. Don’t feel like your space should restrict your design potential, though! Industry West has a range of mid-century modern nightstands, traditional pieces, and contemporary solutions in a variety of materials and sizes that are sure to complete your bedroom furniture set.
