Queen Bedroom Collection – Choosing Bedroom furniture probably involves more knowledge and common sense than selecting any other furniture in your home. Your bedroom is likely the most important room in your house, because it is where you rest to recharge yourself for the next day. Sleep is very important, and without giving your brain and body the opportunity to rest and revitalize, you will not be ready for what is ahead of you, either mentally or physically.
You have a massive selection of American bedroom furniture, from which you are sure to find something to meet your aesthetical, functional and financial needs. Choosing bedroom furniture involves a combination of style and design, and also functionality and comfort. When it comes to beds, looks should never outweigh comfort!
Rather than be overwhelmed by the great looks of that armoire, or the range of options available in a certain bedroom furniture collection, forget these. Don’t buy the peripherals first and then think about you bed – get the most comfortable bed for yourself and then build around that!
Choose Your Mattress First
In fact, the correct thing to do is to first choose your mattress, then the bed to suit and finally the chests, cabinets, armoire and so on. Always keep in mind when choosing a bed – a good-looking bed will not provide you with a good night sleep – a well constructed mattress will! So select your mattress first. There are many available for you to choose from.
It’s difficult to advise anyone on the best mattress for them because it is a very personal thing. The only real problem you have is that if you are a couple, then each partner will be sleeping on the same mattress, so personal preference is a compromise. That’s why both members of a partnership should choose the mattress between them.
The best type of mattress spring is a pocketed spring system, where each spring is independently secured in its own fabric pocket. No spring is attached to another, so each moves independently and partners will cause minimum disturbance to each other when they move. The much-vaunted memory foam is fine for some, but many others don’t like it because it can hold you in the same place all night. Some are affected this way and feel very stiff in the morning.
The best way to test a mattress is to try it out. Lie on it for about 7-10 minutes, moving about to make sure it feels comfortable to you. It is going to cost a fair bit of money, so take the time to make sure you like it. If a mattress is well made, the base of the bed should have minimal impact on its comfort, so once you have the mattress you can choose any bed that fits it.
Since mattresses are made to fit standard bed sizes, that will not be a problem. However, if you want a king or a queen bed, then test a king or a queen mattress. That’s simply sense. Now you have a vast choice of beds in different styles – beds with spring bases, slat bases or even solid bases.
Now Select Your Bed
You can choose sleigh beds, spindle beds, poster and canopy beds, slat beds, platform beds, wall beds, beds with or without drawers – the range is so vast that you should first check out a few online bed manufacturers. If you can find a dealer that is a distributor for a number of different furniture manufacturers, then all the better.
Draw up a short list of your preferred styles then visit the dealer’s showroom and check them out in the flesh. It is better to check online first, because all styles might not be on show – in fact you can bet on it, unless they have unlimited room. Call first and give them your list so they are aware what you are looking for.
You can keep the rest of your furniture in mind when selecting your bed and you might like the look of a particular bedroom furniture collection. Not all collections offer a full range of bed sizes, so make certain that yours will fit your mattress. For example, some do and some don’t offer a California King size: 72W x 84L inches, compared to the King size at 76W x 80L.
Finally Choose the Rest
Once you have selected a collection with a bed suited to your mattress, you can then check out the rest of your bedroom furniture. We shan’t go over that here, because your choice of dresser, armoire, chests, lingerie chest, etc, is a matter of personal preference with no real tips or guidance required.
Choosing bedroom furniture should not be difficult because you have a very wide range of choices available. However, make sure you choose the most comfortable mattress for you and your partner, then choose your bed and finally the rest of the furniture to go with it. Follow that sequence, and your comfort and health will not be compromised.
