Your bedroom is so much more than just another room in your house. It’s your personal safe zone, the place where you begin and end each day, and where you sleep with your children or partner. Your bedroom should be functional and comfortable so you can move through it with ease and wake up and go to sleep stress-free.
In order to make your bedroom comfortable, personal, and functional, you need to design your space with the right pieces of furniture – and furniture that is built to last. Amish furniture is made of 100% solid wood so you can rest assured that your bedroom will look amazing for as long as possible…even if you have little ones jumping on the bed!
Here is our checklist for building the perfect bedroom with Amish furniture:
1. Bed Frame
Having your mattress on a bed frame is a must for every bedroom. Beautifully designed bed frames add to the aesthetic of your bedroom and give you a central focus that you can base everything else in the room off of. Bed frames also add some under the bed storage to your room, which can be incredibly helpful for small houses or large families.
Even if you have a walk-in closet in your bedroom, you should have a solid wood dresser that matches or complements your bed frame. A solid wood dresser is an excellent statement piece that adds to the design and functionality of your bedroom. If you need to save on space in your bedroom, you can opt for a dresser with a mirror and turn the surface into a vanity where you get ready in the mornings.
A nightstand next to your bed will keep everything that you need to get a good night’s rest within reach. This is where you can put a reading lamp, charge your cell phone, and store nighttime items like books, eye masks, lotions, medications, etc. A nightstand is extremely functional, but you can also decorate the top of your nightstand with personal trinkets, fresh cut flowers, or photos – anything that will help make you feel happy and relaxed.
If you sleep in bed with a partner, make sure to have a nightstand on either side of the bed so you both can enjoy the convenience and comfort of a solid wood nightstand.
An armoire is an excellent option for those who have bedrooms without ample closet space. An armoire allows you to hang up your delicate items of clothing that can’t be folded or is the perfect storage space for the items that you wear every day. For example, if you wear a suit to work every day, it makes more sense to store your work clothes in an armoire, rather than in your closet with all of your other clothing. That way you have everything you need to wear just steps away from your bed instead of tucked away in the closet.
On the other hand, an armoire is an excellent solution for those who live in smaller homes or don’t have a closet in their bedrooms at all. Since an armoire has a place to hang clothes and a few drawers, it can double as a “closet” and a “dresser” which ultimately saves you space!
5. Chest of drawers
With a tall, solid chest of drawers, it will be hard to run out of storage space in your bedroom. Here at Online Amish furniture, we have many different options for chests of drawers that will fit any personal style and functionality preference. For example, we have the “His and Hers Chest” that features two side doors with adjustable shelves and seven spacious drawers and the “Gentleman’s Chest” with a single side door, adjustable shelves, two deep sweater drawers, four smaller drawers, and an extra storage area.
