Your bedroom is your personal oasis from the world. It’s where you’ll spend about a third of your life, so you need it to be comfortable, welcoming and well-organized.
Bedroom sets make furnishing your bedroom a snap. Instead of searching for dressers, nightstands and armoires to complement your bed — or trying to find a queen size bed that goes with your dresser — a bedroom set delivers all the furniture you need in a cohesive style that goes together.
If the idea of a bedroom set brings to mind your parents’ outdated, heavy chest of drawers and clunky full-size bedframe, don’t worry. The RoomPlace understands that today’s families need modern bedroom furniture that fits a busy lifestyle and a contemporary attitude.
We want to make buying bedroom furniture a great experience that adds comfort and beauty to your home. Whether you’re updating your master suite, searching for a bedroom set for your growing child or converting a spare room into a multi-use guest room office space, we’ve got furniture solutions to make the process simple.
Our furniture experts have put together a Bedroom Set Buying Guide that breaks down how to choose the right combination of bed size, mattress quality and storage for a sleep oasis you’ll love.
Read on for tips on furnishing your bedroom with style and purpose, and your whole family will be able to rest a little easier.
The centerpiece of any bedroom is your bed. For your master suite, begin by thinking about what size mattress will give you the best night’s sleep. The size of your mattress will determine what kind of bedroom set you’ll need.
For couples, the minimum is a queen size mattress, but that may be too small for comfort. Think about how much each of you moves around overnight, whether you go to bed at the same time, how often either or both of you read or work on a laptop in bed. With a queen size mattress, you each end up getting less real estate than you would on your own twin size mattress! To protect your marital bliss, look for queen mattresses with motion separation or custom options.
Another option is a king or California king bedroom set. Standard king beds are wider, whereas California king beds are longer. General measurements are 76 inches wide and 80- inches long for standard king, and 72 inches wide and 84 inches long for California king.
If you or your partner is tall, a Cali king is definitely in order. And if you and your partner simply prefer more room to stretch out, a standard king could do the trick.
After determining the size mattress you need, look for bedroom sets that include the slats, headboard and footboard that accommodate it, along with enough storage to handle all your stuff. If you’ve got a walk-in closet, you might be able to get away with a five-piece set that adds one dresser or chest of drawers. But if you need more storage, consider a bed with drawers underneath in a set that gives you more furniture options, like nightstands with drawers.
Furnishing your kid’s room requires looking into the future. Is your toddler graduating to his first big-boy bed? Is your little princess morphing into a tween who craves sophistication? Is your high schooler prepping for college life?
Versatility and utility are the key elements of bedroom furniture sets for kids. Options like bunk beds and full-size beds with storage offer the flexibility of following a kid through several stages of growing up. And opting for traditional styles like natural wood tones or classic white painted furniture ensures the bedroom set will remain relevant as your kid’s tastes change.
Make sure you consider storage, too, like a dresser and chest of drawers for clothes and toys. You may need to supplement your kid’s bedroom set with a desk or bookcase to make sure she has all the room she needs to grow and develop.
Having a comfortable place to welcome guests into your home makes sense. The right bedroom set in your guest room can mean the difference between a room that serves only one purpose and a room you can use every day, no matter who’s coming over.
A full-size mattress may be ample in a guest room, though a queen size is optimal. Because your guests are usually only with you for a day or two, a bedroom set with only a few pieces could work in a guest room. You’ll have drawers for extra bedding and other storage, and your guest will have a place for his own things.
If your guest room doubles as a home office or kids’ play room, consider a sleeper sofa for maximum versatility.
Set the Mood with a Bedroom Set
Bedroom sets offer fuss-free solutions to creating a stylish and comfortable place for a good night’s rest. Dressers, nightstands and bed frames that match bring a calming sense of cohesion to any room — and purchasing a set can save substantial money over selecting individual pieces. But if you prefer a more eclectic look, The RoomPlace has lots of options for you to mix it up.
