If you have a large room to furnish then you may not have enough room for a full sized bed. A double bed, although very comfortable, is not ideal for a child or young person. In this situation a loft bed may be the best solution. Under bed storage draws provide plenty of space for bed linens and blankets, or other seasonal clothes. An under bed storage drawer can also be fitted with drawers or wheels on casters for easy accessibility. These can even be converted into chairs in winter.
If your bedroom is large and you need more space for bedding and a night stand then one of the many good quality twin or full beds will meet your requirements. Be sure to measure up correctly to ensure there are no gaps, otherwise you won’t be able to get into the bed. Measure the largest bed in the room, including the side or front frame, then these should be compared to the dimensions of the other rooms. Remember the majority of beds come with a matching night stand and dresser. A queen size dresser will fit most beds and some queen sizes can have a chest design incorporated into them.
It’s a good idea to measure your bed size and get a bed size conversion chart so that you know the conversion from bed size to bed width, height and depth that is required for your particular mattress and box spring. Generally a four poster bed gives a width of approximately 105 inches, a queen bed with a length of approximately 158 inches, and a full bed to a depth of approximately 223 inches. Some mattress pads and pillows have been designed specifically to increase comfort by raising the head and foot end of the mattress, but remember these give a mattress an increased level of support and therefore increase the sleeping comfort level and usually increase the price of the mattress pad too.
The next item of furniture you may wish to add to your bedroom is a storage unit. Many people like the convenience of having under-bed storage, but there are a number of different types of storage units available. The type of storage that you choose really depends on the amount of clothing and items you have lying around the room and where they are kept. If you have a lot of clothes lying about, it might be worth considering a closet storage system, which can store all your clothes neatly away in a secure and convenient location. You can either buy a ready to assemble system from the market or make one yourself.
Drawers are a popular solution for small spaces. There are a number of different types of drawer systems available to suit different storage needs. The simplest type of drawer is a simple wooden box, which can be pulled out for storing things such as socks and underwear. More elaborate systems are available which store folded garments and other items and have a combination of shoe and drawer compartments as well. With a combination shoe/drawer drawer system you can easily store a pair of shoes, trousers, etc in one compartment while leaving the other open for folded clothes.
Other types of bed furniture which you may want to consider including cabinets, chests, dressers and nightstands. Although, most of these items are often associated with bedrooms, there are some which are suitable for use in children’s rooms. For example, if you have young children, then you may want to buy a chest of drawers as it can protect their toys from harm whilst also being highly functional. Some chests of drawers are available in both dressers and nightstands, so they can be used in conjunction with each other. Also look out for safety features such as under-bed cabinets and drawer slides.
