Beds and Frames
A bed is the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of decorating a bedroom and there are several to choose from ranging from sleigh and platform beds to daybeds and futons.
For frames and headboards, most people prefer wood but there is also the thought that wooden furniture is always antique. While this might be true to some extent, there are a lot of modern contemporary wooden frames available to brighten any room. Some currently on the market are crafted with solid wood that comes with a polished veneer look. For added convenience, some contemporary headboards are even fitted with lights that can be easily switched on and off as needed.
For those who do not particularly care for wood, a steel frame is also very stylish and quite popular. Stainless steel frames create elegance and tends to complement other furnishings in the bedroom.
These are essential for any bedroom to place items such lamps and books so they can easily be reached. They also have drawers where important documents can be stored.
Contemporary nightstands now come in several appealing shapes and styles. Choices range from glass top cabinets to contoured shapes to triangular shaped low tables that form an extension to the bed. They are very versatile, offer a lot of concealed storage spaces and looks remarkable.
No room decoration will be complete without a dressing table which is essentially a complementary piece to the bed. Contemporary dressers have style, quality and functionality all combined, and come in a variety of colors and finishes. Features such as safety locks, self-closing mechanisms and folding mirrors are the choices that consumers have these days. Dressers are important for displaying cosmetics as well as storing personal clothing like underwear.
Lamps are a must, especially in the United States since most bedrooms are not fitted with ceiling lights. Ultra modern lamps now come in brass or chrome finishes with sleek designs. The shiny metals add richness to the overall décor.
The most essential contemporary furniture items for the bedroom are what have been listed here. However, everybody have their preferences and what someone might regard as essential might not necessarily reflect another’s opinion. What is important though is decorating the bedroom with furniture preferences, taste and style to create a haven that is delightful to the individual.
