Sofas, Chairs, Tables, Lamps – you know you love them! You can’t get enough of them. Furniture is definitely something to be passionate about. It is fun, inspiring, and is what makes a house a home.
If you don’t have a lot of space, or a hefty budget, there are essential four pieces of furniture that no home should be without.
1. A Real Bed
Egg crates be gone, sleeping on the floor is no way to live at all. A mattress left on the floor zaps all creativity and flair from a bedroom. Even if a luxurious four-poster bed worthy of a queen isn’t on your budget, you can still add some romance and drama to the design of your bedroom.
One of the cheapest materials for bed frames in wrought iron. It also happens to be one of the biggest trends of today.
Offering a minimalist look, wrought iron bed posts allow you to add complimentary furniture from an eclectic mix of colors and materials without clashing.
2. A Chair or Desk
Your bed is where you sleep. It’s where you relax. Keep it that way. If you are going to take work or bills into the bedroom, keep it out of the bed. Provide yourself with an alternate space, such as desk or comfy chair, where you can sit and take care of important business.
Similarly, if you have a television in the bedroom, it’s a good idea to also drag in a stylish plush chair. The chair will serve as inviting place to watch television aside from your bed.
3. A Night Table
You need someplace to store your alarm, the earrings you don’t want to wear to bed, your eyeglasses after falling asleep reading, or a cell phone for safety.
Let’s face it: a night table is your lifeline, between your awake life and your dream life. It can be as small and simple as you want, but don’t go without a night table.
Night tables also do a great job of balancing out a room when placed on either side of the bed. They can make even a simple bed appear wider and grander.
4. A Wide Dresser
A set of dresser drawers with a wide surface on the top is a blessing in a bedroom. It is a great staging area for everything from creams and lotions to neckties.
It is important to have a place to lay out clothing and accessories before bed for easy reach in the morning.
You may think you can do with a narrow dresser or with simply a tall chest, but the function of your bedroom setup will go much smoother with a wide dresser as a staging area.
Now that you know all about some of the most important pieces of furniture you can own, it’s time to start keeping an eye out for gorgeous pieces you can implement into your home.
