Bedroom Basics: 7 ways to “master” your bedroom with Furniture Fair
Of all the rooms in your house, your bedroom is usually where you spend the most time. So creating the perfect space is important. You want something not only warm and welcoming but also cozy and calming—a place that expresses who you are and acts as your own personal sanctuary, allowing you to feel safe, secure, and tucked away from the rest of the world. It’s the one room in your home that’s just for you, so why not make the most of it? Furniture Fair can provide exactly what you need to “master” your bedroom. Read on for tips on getting it just right.
1. Spice up your space with funky accessories.
When it comes to your bedroom, it’s important to accessorize wisely. Don’t go nuts and overdo it or your space will begin to look cluttered, but don’t go completely bare either or you’ll risk evoking the austerity of a hotel room. Instead, pick a few key pieces, like a pair of Leaf Trays for storing jewelry, or an eye-catching piece of wall art, like the modern oil-on-canvas Gold Splashes.
2. Maximize storage space with clever furniture design.
Whether small or large, a well-designed bedroom never lets space go to waste. Keep clutter at bay with under-the-bed storage or add a vintage-look trunk, like the cedar-lined Aspen Skies Storage Trunk, for a stylish way to hide out-of-season garments. Or opt for a bed with built-in storage, like the Chesapeake White Storage Bedroom. Two large drawers on either side are perfect for storing sheets and blankets, while the soft-white finish and distressed salt-air style creates romantic seaside getaway vibes.
3. Mix and match colors, textures, and patterns.
If neutral looks leave you bored, embrace your creative side by playing around with color, texture, and patterns. Pair a bright, bold wallpaper with nautical-inspired bedding, like the navy-and-ivory Strathmore 6-piece Comforter Set. Top it off with the ruffled texture of this Annalise Pillow Sham, and finish the look with a sumptuous oriental carpet, like the Andorra Turquoise Rug. It’ll really tie the room together.
4. Warm things up with wood.
If you’re looking for timelessness, skip metal and plastic and opt for solid wood furniture. Built to last, these pieces can be passed down through the generations, only improving with time. The heirloom-quality Amish Lewiston Dresser offers raw beauty paired with ultimate durability, and it is made right here in the United States. Best of all, it’s customizable—select your own wood, finish, hardware, and style to create the bedroom of your dreams.
5. Find beauty in symmetry.
Science shows that people are more attracted to symmetrical faces, and the same goes for furniture. By purchasing bedroom items in pairs, you can create a mirror image on each side of your room for a look that’s both pulled together and perfectly balanced. Start with matching bedside tables, like the Napa Valley-inspired Calistoga Nightstands, and top them with a pair of matching lamps, like the ceramic Casa Table Lamps, which feature a distressed sea-blue finish that’s instantly calming.
6. Brighten up dark corners with mirrors.
Mirrors reflect existing light, making them an excellent way to illuminate areas where outlets are in short supply. Try mixing and matching several mirrors in different shapes and sizes, like the contemporary Weeki Mirror for its clean lines, the gold-leaf Langham Wall Mirror for a bit of Hollywood glam, and the Amberlyn Sunburst Gold Mirror for a pop of vintage style.
7. Make things easy with home assembly.
Navigating a king-size headboard up your stairs and through your narrow doorways is no easy task—in fact, it might be impossible depending on the dimensions. Luckily, many Furniture Fair pieces can be unassembled for easy transfer and reassembled by the company’s skilled delivery team.
