The best bedroom furniture for you will depend on a variety of factors, including your personal taste and the space you have to work with. Before shopping, make sure you have accurate measurements of your bedroom so that you can figure out the size and number of pieces that will fit.
The most essential piece of furniture in any bedroom is, of course, the bed. Standard bed sizes include twin, queen, king and Cal-king. Choose a bed that's large enough to be comfortable for the people sleeping in it but not so big that it overwhelms the room and takes up too much space.
For clothes storage, you may choose a dresser
or a chest
. Make sure the item you choose will fit through your doorways and go with the overall look of your room.
The most important consideration in choosing a night stand is its height relative to your bed. You'll want one that keeps your alarm clock, lamp and glass of within reach.
Other items are more optional. If you have space, you may want a bedroom bench and a vanity and vanity stool. A nice headboard will help bring your bedroom's design scheme together.
