Tips for Bedroom Furniture Shopping
If you are decorating or remodeling your bedroom, The American Furniture Manufacturers Association makes the following recommendations for bedroom furniture shopping:
- Decide what best expresses your personal style
- Determine your budget.
- Measure your space to see what pieces you can accommodate.
- A well-equipped bedroom generally consists of a bed, a nightstand or two, a dresser or chest and a mirror. Many of today's bedrooms feature an armoire, too.
- The bed is generally the focal point of the bedroom so you'll probably want to select it first.
- When shopping for pieces that aren't upholstered, such as dressers, chests and tables (known as "casegoods" in the furniture world), find out what they are made of – is it hardwood or softwood? Quality pieces are available in both hard and soft woods.
- With any wood pieces, an examination of the construction will reveal a lot about the quality. Lift a corner. Does it feel heavy and sturdy? Check out the corners. Do they feel strong and secure?
- Open and shut the drawers. Do they open and close easily? Do they fit snugly? You want to make sure they don't sag.
- Examine the finish of the piece. The finish should be smooth, without cracks or bubbles
- Check the hardware, e.g. handles and pulls, they should be secure and strong with no rough or sharp edges.
- And after you've made your major furniture selections, remember to add accessories such as lamps, photo frames, rugs and wall décor.
- Most importantly, enjoy yourself.
