Once you have the dimension of the bedroom and have a budget in mind, now it’s time for you to start shopping. The first thing that you should look into is the bed as it will be the main furniture of the room. On the basis of the dimension of the room and the comfort you need, you can select a king size or queen size bed. Next will be to select the mattress and frame.
- Frames- Ensure that the bed has a sturdy construction and supports the mattress efficiently along with the weight of people on the bed. Imagine what the height of the bed will be once you put a mattress on it. Depending on the mobility, you can go for a platform-style, low bed which generally doesn’t feature spring or you can go for a tester-style, higher bed. Right from the traditional design, sleek platform to four posters, there are several options to choose from. Let your taste do the best selection.
- Mattresses- There are several types of mattresses now available on the market. There are traditional mattresses which feature innerspring and then there are the latest models with memory foam. Moreover, there are also hybrids which combine two or more types of mattresses. When selecting a mattress let the comfort level you need make the selection.

- Selecting dressers
Once you are done with the bed, the next important part is to think about storage. This too will depend on the size of your bedroom. As far as dresser is concerned, make sure that you check its construction before buying it. You can go for one with solid wood, smooth drawers which are finished or sealed to prevent warping. The corners of the drawer should square with the sides of the drawers and secured with the help of dovetail joints. The bottom of the drawer should have grooves and not screwed or glued. Check the drawers by opening and closing them to ensure that they work smoothly. If you have limited space, you can look for a dresser with high stacked drawers to make most of the available space.
- Side tables
A bed should definitely have a side table too and it should have adequate space to at least hold a lamp and some additional space for holding a beverage. You can also select a model that features drawers and cabinet which you can easily store your reading materials, a flashlight, eyeglasses, medicines, mobile phone, etc.

You can also make use of a bench which can be placed at the foot of the bed to offer storage space beneath the seat.
