Design Elements of Bedroom Sets

Your bedroom serves as a sanctuary of peace, quiet, rejuvenation, and sleep. The furniture for your inner sanctum should make everything orderly, neat, and tidy. Bedroom sets of furniture are so much more than just a bed and a chest of drawers. Woodcraft Furniture shows you what other matching pieces go well in your bedroom.


Bedroom sets include twin nightstands, which are small tables on either side of the bed. They keep essential items on hand, such as glasses, cellphones, a book, or a glass of water. Nightstands are convenient and allow you to have a table lamp to see when it’s dark. Modern versions even come with their own charging ports for mobile devices. Nightstands are as tall as your mattress, so all you have to do is reach over and grab something.

Armoire or Wardrobe

An armoire or wardrobe serves as a stand-alone storage area. It comes in handy if you have no closet or if you need extra space for items you have to hang that can’t get wrinkled or folded, such as dresses, slacks, or formal shirts. An armoire may have shelves for bedding, towels, and linens next to a taller space. Your armoire also adds a touch of class to your bedroom. Historically, armoires date back to 17th century France when people used them to store armor as part of their bedroom sets.

Headboard with Shelves

A headboard lets you stack pillows against it without worrying about the space in between your mattress and the wall. A sturdy headboard makes your nights more comfortable by helping you create your perfect arrangement of pillows. Headboards with shelves add convenience and an extra dimension to bedroom sets, as shelves offer a great place for books, an alarm clock, photos, and mementos. Shelves also create thickness and sturdiness for a headboard that lasts a lifetime.

A bench at the foot of the bed offers a place to sit. The bench makes it easier to get ready for your day or take off your shoes after a long day at work. Benches were also traditional pieces of furniture for bedroom sets. Feel free to move the bench over to a vanity or make-up table for versatility.

How to Choose the Best Bed for You

When you are shopping for new bedroom furniture, there are several factors you should take into account. Read on in today’s blog from the team at Woodcraft Furniture to find the perfect bed for you.

Beds and Mattresses Should Work Together

When you’re shopping for a new bed, always consider what type of mattress you’ll be using with it. Spring mattresses should be paired with spring beds, but slat beds usually use foam mattresses. Whenever possible, you should buy a new bed and a new mattress at the same time, because a new mattress on an old bed won’t last as long as it would on a new one.

Some newer mattresses do not use a boxspring, but instead require a platform design. Many of the beds at Woodcraft Furniture are equipped to handle these mattresses. We have a variety of traditional bed frames as well.

Quality Construction for Durability and Comfort

Besides having a comfortable mattress, you need a bed with sturdy construction that can handle a long life of use. A good bed should measure up to the size, shape and specific needs of the sleeper. Whichever style of bed you choose to buy from Woodcraft Furniture, you can count on their sturdy construction.

Style Is Important Too

Because the bed is the focal point of any bedroom, it’s critical that you choose a style you and your partner like. If you want to create a warm, welcoming, comfortable feel, you may want to opt for a wooden bed, piled up with quilts and pillows to set a cozy mood. Those who prefer a sleek, modern look should choose a wood bed with clean, minimalist lines. Woodcraft Furniture offers a wide variety of bedroom furniture styles, so you can find the bed or bedroom set that’s just right for you.

Size Matters

Be sure you’ll have a reasonable amount of space around your bed once you place it in the bedroom. If you don’t have a lot of space in your bedroom, a storage bed could be a great option.

Even if you usually sleep by yourself, that doesn’t mean that you should buy a small bed size. Some sleepers need or like a lot of space to feel comfortable, so consider investing in a larger bed. Woodcraft Furniture offers twin, full, queen, or king bed frames, as well as platform beds and storage beds.
