5 ways to make a bedroom you'll love

By definition, a bedroom isn’t really a bedroom without a bed. But there’s so much more that goes into furnishing the bedroom of your dreams than just picking a comfy place to lay your head. From master suite to kids’ room, and from multipurpose guest room to curl-up-with-a-book “me” space, we’ve got the questions and considerations to help you find just what you’re looking for when it comes to bedroom furniture. 

Here are the five most important things to consider when picking bedroom furniture:

Remember two things when selecting nightstands — storage and symmetry. Think about everything you’ll need within arms’ reach. Are you simply storing your cellphone charger and a glass of water, or do you need to stow a stack of reading material behind drawers and doors? Do you need two matching tables for symmetry, or do his-and-hers side tables strike your fancy? Strapped for space and considering only one nightstand? That’s allowed, too.

Don’t underestimate the value of having a spot to sit in the bedroom. Adding an accent chair or bench can liven up a bare corner, create a quiet reading nook or serve as multipurpose workspace.
