Have you ever bought furniture and knew it was the wrong choice as soon as you saw it in your bedroom? Almost everyone has. When it happens, it may fill your mind with questions. You might wonder what you possibly thought when you bought this unacceptable style, color, quality, or design. But the time to ask questions is before it’s sitting in your home. Here are a few things to consider before you buy furniture for your bedroom.
1. What mood do I want to experience here?
The fastest route to disappointment is buying furniture that makes you feel unhappy when you walk into the room. But not everyone wants the same mood in their bedroom. So, before you make your selections, think of the ambiance you want to create.
- Cheerful – light colors and simple designs
- Cozy – furniture with soft edges in rich colors
- Luxurious – ornate designs, extravagant materials, and upholstered headboards
- Calm – gentle cool or neutral colors and clean lines
2. How long will I use this furniture?
How long you want to use the furniture will play a part in the quality level you need to choose. If you’re planning on replacing it in a year, it might not need to be as well-constructed as if you want to hang onto it for a while. And, if you’re going to pass it down to future generations, you’ll need the best quality furniture available.

3. How important is comfort?
This may seem like a silly question. Of course, everyone wants to be comfortable, right? But the truth is that some people have other priorities. Some want their bedroom to be beautiful, above all else. Others don’t care as much about the looks of their furniture as they care about their physical comfort. For the most comfortable bedroom furniture, go for items that have upholstery, padding, and rounded edges.
4. Do I have any physical limitations?
Some pieces of furniture are not ideal for people with physical limitations. Here’s how furniture can make your life easier:
- Mattresses with firm edge support make getting in and out of bed easier.
- Beds need to be the right height to accommodate you.
- Case goods need enough storage to hold any medical equipment you need in your room
- Drawers that glide in and out smoothly require less strength.
5. What size of furniture is best?
You’ll want to consider the size of your furniture for two reasons. First, you need furniture that fits you, including the bed’s right size and the best chest and dresser height. If you or someone you know has such pieces, and they’re easy to use and comfortable, you can measure them. Second, you need furniture that will fit in your room. So, measure your room and check out the dimensions of the furniture you’re considering. Also, don’t forget to leave space to move around in your bedroom.
You can save yourself a lot of heartache and disappointment when you buy furniture. All you have to do is take some time, think it over, and ask the right questions. When you do, you can create the perfect bedroom space to appreciate and enjoy.
