A home is a man’s castle and the bedroom is said to be where many historic decisions are made more than anywhere else. That may be true as the bedroom provides the last oasis of a man to relax at the end of the day and the quality of the room molds the quality of his decisions after a good night’s rest. And for most people on the planet, the bedroom is also where they were made, literally. It is no wonder then that of all the rooms in the house, the bedroom often eats up the most in any budget for constructing a home.
No matter what size the bedroom is, it is the quality of bedroom sets and furnishing that create the ambiance responsible for its inviting appeal at the end of the day. Among professional interior design decorators, the advice is one - never scrimp on your bedroom.
An investment, not an expense
At the heart of the modern bedroom is your bedroom set consisting of the bed and associated furniture like night stands on either side of the bed and a chest at the foot, along with wardrobe bureaus, drawers and armoires, and dressers. If you are in the market for furnishing your home, consider your bedroom as an investment that can become an heirloom for your kids and will only grow in value over time as an antique when properly taken cared of.
Once you’ve made your decision on the design motif for your bedroom, obtaining the best bedroom furnishings start with getting only those crafted with the best woods. You can go for Chinese and European antiques of the last 100 years and you can be sure your bedroom furniture investment will continue to appreciate.
The main attribute of a good set of bedroom furniture is the quality of the wood they are made of and the craftsmanship that went in their construction. Solid oak wood in beds are the preferred hardwoods for a timeless bedroom set. And going for fine names in furniture like Broyhill and Legacy is often your guarantee they will last.
Some of the better crafted beds can range in price from $3,000 to $4,000 with antiques costing twice or more. There are also bedroom sets that already include side night stands, armoires and dressers as part of a bedroom showcase. They are often priced as discounted bedroom furniture. Just make sure they are made of fine hardwoods like Oak wood. And if you wait a little longer, some of the slow moving and expensive furniture stocks get significant discounts.
