Bedroom Essentials

With Houston’s booming real estate market, scores of people are buying homes, and one of the most exciting parts of home ownership is decorating it exactly the way you want. In today’s blog, the furniture experts at Star Furniture provide a new house checklist of all the bedroom essentials you need for your new home. 

Bedroom Essential # 1: A Comfortable Mattress

Buying a new home is the perfect excuse to upgrade your mattress. Not only will it help you get a better night’s sleep, but if your new bedroom is a different size than your old bedroom, you may need to adjust the size of your mattress. If you’re decorating a large bedroom, for example, you may be able to upgrade to a king or California king mattress. If you’re decorating a small bedroom, you may be better off with a queen mattress. In addition to the size of the mattress, you should also consider mattress type, firmness, motion isolation, temperature neutrality, durability, and comfort when choosing a mattress. If you’re choosing a mattress for a child, you’ll want to consider the same things, as well as when they might outgrow that particular bed. Ready to start shopping?

Bedroom Essential # 2: A Stylish Bed 

When decorating a bedroom, one of the most important items to cross off your new house checklist is right there in the name: the bed. While part of the decision will depend on the interior design style of your bedroom, there’s also the style of the bed to consider. While oversized sleigh beds work great in large bedrooms, platform beds can be great for decorating a small bedroom. Looking to create a relaxing and cozy bedroom? Upholstered beds are one of the hottest interior design trends of 2021, and they add a nice softness to the room, which is perfect for promoting relaxation. If you’re decorating a kids’ room, you’ll want to consider bunk beds, trundle beds, or day beds. Regardless of what type of bed you choose, Star Furniture has beds for sale in every style and budget. 

Bedroom Essential # 3: Bedroom Storage

When decorating your bedroom, storage is essential. While dressers, chests, and armoires are likely at the top of the list, you’re likely storing more than just clothes in your bedroom. Nightstands provide a limited amount of drawer space. Plus, putting them on both sides of the bed adds symmetry to the room and provides a practical space for you to store your nightly glass of water, reading material, alarm clock, cell phone, and anything else you want close to you while you sleep. Nightstands are also a great place to display lamps and add some bedroom lighting that you can easily turn on and off from bed. 

Bedrooms Essential # 4: Bedroom Seating

While many people use their master bedroom primarily for sleeping, there’s still a real benefit to having some sort of bedroom seating in your room. If you use your bedroom as a place to relax, you might consider an accent chair or a chaise lounge. If you’re looking for practical seating that gives you someplace to set out your clothes and sit down to put on your shoes, a bedroom bench or a vanity may be all you need. If you’re decorating a kids’ bedroom, we have a wide range of seating and desk options that can give your child the space they need for homework, arts and crafts, or virtual schooling. 

Bedroom Essential # 5: Bedroom Lighting 

Bedroom lighting is incredibly important, whether you’re talking about a master bedroom, a guest bedroom, or a kids’ bedroom. While many bedrooms have some form of overhead lighting, table lamps can be an incredibly important addition to a bedroom. Not only do they give you a light source that you can easily turn on and off once you’re already in bed, but table lamps can also be a great piece of décor to make your room pop. 

Bedroom Essential # 6: Luxurious Bedding 

In our early 20s, so many of us aren’t ready to spend money on things that we think fall into a decorative category, including things like bed frames and nice bedding. But in addition to its functional purpose of creating a cozy bed to crawl into at night, luxurious bedding can also completely transform your bedroom, and in turn, your mood. To get started, you’ll need a nice mattress protector, a sheet set, a comforter/duvet cover, and decorative throw pillows. Visit a Star Furniture & Mattress near you to order one of our custom bedding sets.

Bedroom Essential #7: Bedroom Décor 

Did you know that a room’s décor can influence the way you feel when you’re in it? That’s why we’ve included bedroom décor on our new house checklist. Choosing stylish wall art that showcases your personality and promotes relaxation can turn your bedroom into a peaceful oasis. One of our favorite bedroom décor ideas is taking advantage of mirrors. Floor mirrors work especially well in bedrooms because they give you a chance to make sure you’re not wearing wrinkled pants or two different colored shoes before leaving the house. Plus, mirrors can create the illusion of space, making your bedroom appear more spacious. An area rug can also be a great addition to a bedroom, as it adds texture to the room and protects your feet from cold floors. 

Whether you’re decorating a master bedroom, a kids’ room, or a guest bedroom, Star Furniture & Mattress has all the bedroom furniture and bedroom décor you need to cross off of your new house checklist.
