Bedroom furniture buying guide

Posted by Adam Chard in Buying guides | 8 years ago 3 min read

We strongly believe that your bedroom should be a completely unique space, and truly represent your own personal style. After all, if your clothes are stylish, why shouldn’t your bedroom follow suit?

Creating a beautiful bedroom that is easy to relax in and enjoy is so simple with a huge choice of gorgeous bedroom furniture available. This guide will provide you with some insight and help you find the ideal product, giving you an overview of what you need to know when choosing your bedroom furniture.

Bedside drawers

Your bedside drawers (also known as a bedside cabinet), pretty much do what they say on the tin. Simply put, they're a set of drawers that sit by your bedside and are the perfect height for resting that book you’ve got into, adding a bedside lamp and maybe even a few little photo frames and trinkets here and there.

Most bedside drawers come in three different styles: 1 drawer, 2 drawers or 3 drawers, ranging from around 0.55m – 0.7m in height, and are available in a variety of finishes including:

  • Mirror glass
  • Oak
  • Oak and grey
  • Oak and white gloss
  • Reclaimed pine
  • Walnut and black gloss
  • White mirror glass
  • White oak

Chest of drawers

A chest of drawers is the perfect storage solution for all of those clothes you don’t need to hang up. It also makes a great place to display photos, candles or even place your television.

Chests of drawers generally come in 7 different drawer arrangements, ranging from around 0.85m – 1.4m in height:

  • 3 drawers
  • 4 drawers
  • 5 drawers
  • 7 drawers
  • 3 + 3 drawers
  • 2 over 3 drawers
  • 4 over 3 drawers

Generally, these drawer chests come in a “tall” arrangement – where the drawers are stacked one on top of the other - or a “wide” arrangement, where the drawers are stacked side-by-side.

These chests of drawers are all available in the range of finishes listed above.

  • 2 door 1 drawer
  • 3 door
  • 3 door 2 drawer

Dressing table

When it comes to a more feminine or shared bedroom, many girls dream about their ideal dressing table. A perfectly personalised place to get ready for the day (or night) ahead, with plenty of space for jewellery, makeup and all your other beauty products.

The Paris dressing table (pictured below) brings a real touch of glitz and glamour to your bedroom and comes in two styles: mirror glass and white glass.

Both dressing tables feature two drawers with coloured inlay. Plus, you can also add a trifold mirror if you’re the kind of person who likes every angle covered.

A piece of furniture named after a historic empire? Despite the rather grandiose title, an ottoman is really rather functional, providing a superb storage option for your bedroom.

Sited at the end of your bed or in an alcove, your ottoman not only serves as a handy place to keep clothes but can also function as additional seating.

You can choose from a wide range of styles, colours and fabrics to match your bedroom decor.
