Without planning carefully before researching bedroom furniture, you’ll waste a lot of time, maybe get frustrated, and then make a wrong decision you’re not happy with when the furniture pieces are delivered.
The great thing about buying bedroom furniture online is that you can easily visualize multiple different arrangements to come up with the perfect bedroom set. But it all comes down to the quality and style you choose.
Whether you’re purchasing a bedside table or refurbishing the entire bedroom, for it to be a long-term investment, you should also research where and how it’s produced.
Let me show you how to approach buying a bedroom furniture set to avoid disappointment.
Planning Your Bedroom Furniture Research
Searching for new bedroom furniture sets can be very frustrating and time-consuming. To prevent this from happening, make a plan before you start.
Here’s what you should do.
What Style Do You Want?
An elegant, traditional piece with intricate design may catch your eye, but it won’t be the right choice if you have sleek mid-century modern furniture in your entire home, for example.
And even if it is suitable for the master bedroom, it won’t be the right choice for a child’s room.
As there are so many styles available for bedroom furniture, decide whether traditional, mid-century modern or contemporary is the right design for you before researching.
Then by identifying what you want, you can apply your search to that style.
Measure Out Your Bedroom
If you don’t take measurements of your bedroom, you could end up disappointed when finding the furniture you purchased is either too bulky or too small for the room when it arrives.
You’ll also need to decide where to place the pieces you purchase to show them off best.
Once you know where to put them, calculate the smallest and largest dimensions that will fit in that space. By doing this, you’ll avoid being disappointed when finding the perfect piece but then realizing that the measurements are wrong.
Make A List Of Bedroom Furniture
Before you research, make a list of what you really need, whether it’s a complete matching bedroom furniture set or just one item.
As there are so many bedroom sets to choose from, the list will help you focus on what you need instead of purchasing something you’ll later regret.
Then check whether you need additional storage space or if you’ve planned enough.
The list will also help save time, as it will stop you from going off on tangents when searching the internet for bedroom furniture.
Create A Text Document To Save Your Favorites
You should download an image of each item you find attractive and place them into a text document. Doing so will prevent wasting time as you won’t need to check all the information at this stage.
Once you’ve finished researching, you can review each item at your leisure and delete the unsuitable ones. Then comparing what’s left will make it easier to make a choice.
Besides, you won’t need to get frustrated and waste time searching the online store again to find the ones you liked.
Bedroom Furniture Options
Whether you need individual furniture pieces for a large or small bedroom, you’ll find everything you need in various styles, from traditional to sleek modern designs.
We offer a choice of wood, wicker, or leather for the bed frame so you can match the beds to your home decor.
And whether you want bright or light colors, you’ll find an amazing color palette to choose from.
You’ll also find some intricate headboard designs to make a statement, while others are plain, so they won’t distract from any existing furniture pieces.
If you need additional storage space but don’t have much room, place a chest of drawers next to your bed instead of a bedside table. Apart from storing things in the drawers, you’ll have somewhere to put a reading lamp.
For a larger room, a bigger chest is the best choice as an additional storage place for pillows and bedding.
Some even have doors, offering additional space for storing more oversized items.
A chest is also suitable for a child’s room, as it’s a great place to store a child’s clothes and toys.
Dressers are the best choice for spacious bedrooms, and they’re ideal if you don’t have space for a wardrobe in a smaller room.
They’re long pieces of waist-high furniture with large drawers. The drawers are a perfect size for keeping folded clothes, accessories, or anything else that needs to be placed out of sight.
Some dressers have small drawers on the top where you can store underwear and socks and bigger ones at the bottom for larger clothing items.
And the flat tops of a dresser are great for placing perfume, jewelry, or framed photos.
A full-size standing mirror is the best choice for larger rooms if you’re looking for an accent piece to fill that extra space. You’ll be able to check that you’re perfectly groomed before leaving the house.
And you could make it the focal point of the room if you choose the right style of mirror.
Consider purchasing a dresser mirror for a smaller bedroom with no space for a standing mirror. Whether you place it on top of a dresser or hang it on the wall, you’ll still have somewhere to check that you are presentable before leaving home.
Bedroom benches are fantastic furniture pieces that provide somewhere to sit while getting dressed. But they also have other practical benefits, as many also offer additional storage space.
You can use this space to keep extra blankets or to store throw pillows when not in use.
It’s a furniture piece that’s also suitable for a child’s room. Your child would have a place to sit with friends, and the room could be quickly tidied by throwing everything into the storage space before friends arrive.

Bedroom Furniture Quality Expectations
Before purchasing bedroom furniture, it’s vital to check the following quality standards.
Solid Hardwood Frames
For furniture to last, its frame should be made from highly durable, kiln-dried solid hardwood, for example, ash, maple, or oak. Many companies use inferior materials like pine or plywood for the frame to offer lower prices.
Even with minimal wear and tear, this will become uncomfortable when it starts to sag within a short time.
We have partnered with manufacturing companies that only produce bed frames made from locally sourced, superior hardwood. Each frame is handcrafted to provide support and ensure ultimate comfort for decades, so you’ll be sure of making a long-term investment.
Highest Quality Leather
Don’t be misled when you find attractive leather furniture at a low price. Low-priced leather is inferior, and in no time, it will crack and eventually tear and no longer be appealing.
To avoid disappointment, look for full-grain and top-grain products, as both types of leather are incredibly durable.
With all its natural imperfections, the tough outer layer of the hide is left intact on full-grain leather. And these imperfections provide it with a completely natural look.
But top-grain is the perfect choice for a family with kids. The outer layer of the hide is sanded down to soften it then a stain-resistant coating is added for protection.
Durable Fabric Upholstery
For upholstered beds, there’s a fantastic selection of prime fabric that will match every home decor. These fabrics are sourced from American mills, so you can be sure of the best quality.
There are also designs suitable for kids’ rooms. And as the fabrics are stain-resistant, you won’t need to worry about kids damaging them.
There’s even no need for concern about spilling drinks if you enjoy having breakfast in bed.
With proper care, this premium-rate fabric could last a lifetime.
Handcrafted Manufacturing Techniques
The highly skilled craftspeople use techniques for producing handcrafted furniture that has been passed down from generation to generation.
You can expect furniture built to last as the master furniture makers mostly hand-pick the necessary material. And all the frames and wood needed in production are made from kiln-dried solid hardwood.
As the craftspeople understand the value of their trade, they want to ensure the pieces customers receive meet their demands.
Besides, unlike machine-made mass-produced products, custom-made ones are environmentally sustainable as handcrafted techniques use less energy.
Made In America
The manufacturers we’ve partnered with are among the best furniture producers in America. They all have decades of experience in producing superior handcrafted bedroom furniture.
With the customization options available, you can be sure of highly durable furniture that is also unique.
They only employ highly-skilled craftspeople who make the products from materials sourced in America. And as they’re based in North Carolina, they can take advantage of the abundant supply of hardwood available from the Appalachian forests.
When you purchase these products, you can be proud of supporting local jobs and the American economy.
