Your bedroom is the most important room in your house. It is your sanctuary; your place where the rest of the world disappears. Everyone knows that the bed is the most important piece of bedroom furniture, but did you realize that there are other pieces that are just as important, yet get little notice? It’s true! We tend to focus on our beds more than we do on anything else, probably because of the importance of that particular piece of bedroom furniture, but there are other pieces of bedroom furniture that are considered to be the unsung heroes.
Where would you store your clothes if you didn’t have a bureau or dresser? Most master bedroom sets come with at least one, if not two, dressers. But honestly, think about how you’d store your clothes if you didn’t have a dresser. A lot of young adults who are living on their own for the first time will stack up milk crates in order to have someplace to store their clothes, and some will shove boxes under their beds as a way to keep the clothes out of the way.
Neither of these ways is very attractive. It is not that expensive to purchase a dresser. If you can take a few hours, you can transform a dresser you don’t care for that you purchased at a discount bedroom furniture store into a beautiful piece of bedroom furniture. Simply strip off the old paint or varnish, by using chemicals, sanding, or a combination of both, and apply new stain to the wood. Or, if the wood is too damaged to look good stained again, use paint that is meant to go on wood. You can transform an old, 70’s looking bureau into a beautiful piece of colored, or black, furniture.
The Night Stand
Have you ever given much thought to where your bedside lamp or alarm clock sits? For most people, it is their night stand. A night stand is usually the last piece of bedroom furniture that people think to purchase, and it’s only when they realize that they will have to put their alarm clock halfway across the room do they recognize the importance of this particular piece of bedroom furniture. Night stands can come as part of a bedroom set and can match the dressers, headboards, or other pieces of furniture, but quite often people purchase matching night stands at a discount furniture store as an afterthought. Almost always, though, the night stands match and become a permanent fixture in the bedroom.
The next time you’re in your bedroom, or are shopping for furniture onine, take a look at The Fashion Bed Group, check out the pieces of furniture that you use without thinking. What about the chair that you have at the end of your bed that helps you get dressed in the morning, or the hope chest that keeps all of your cherished belongings safe? Pieces that you often don’t think about turn around to become pieces that are passed down from generation to generation.
