Ditch the Bedroom Sets

When shopping for new bedroom furniture, you might immediately think of a matching set because well, it matches. Master bedrooms come in all shapes and sizes and trying to fit a basic bedroom set that varies from one solid color but not much else can be tricky. Worst of all, it can end up looking bland in the end. Ditching the basic bedroom sets will add more character to your room, so here is how to do it.



The first thing to keep in mind when shopping for new furniture is definitely the size of your room and how you are going to lay it all out in a practical way while still making it look good. Doing the basic king size bed with a nightstand on each side can actually chop your room in half. Instead, try different layouts that you have never thought of before. You may be pleasantly surprised.


Instead of traditional nightstands on each side, try floating shelves, no night stand at all or a small stool. This will clear up some space and get rid of some clutter that inevitably builds up on a chunky night stand. If you are attracted to the look of typical nightstands, at least get one with a drawer so the clutter can stay hidden.

When choosing furniture, look for different textures, colors, and patterns. This will add character to your room that is missing with the matching bedroom sets. Incorporating different textures and patterns will add depth and make your room feel more like you. Besides, your bedroom is supposed to be a personal space for you to unwind after a long day. Layering unique furniture will elevate your space by looking intentional and thought-out.

If you have kids, pets or you know that your bedroom will be a high-traffic area, I recommend choosing high-quality furniture. You can detect quality by looking at an assembly that uses more screws and dowels than glue and nails, checking for sturdy springs, finding reversible couch cushions, and testing furniture for sturdiness.



If you are having trouble finding high-end and exclusive furniture, try talking to an experienced interior designer about local and unique places to shop that will have high-quality and one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. I promise, you will find a lot more than you will at typical big-box stores.
