Bedroom furniture buying guide

Bedroom furniture buying guide

Bedrooms are a sanctuary away from the stresses of the day, a place to retreat to. A bedroom should be peaceful yet practical, with furniture that functions effectively allowing you to make the most of your space.

Once you have made the big decisions such as your bed and mattress, see our bed and mattress buying guides for help, you then need to think about other furniture you want in your bedroom.


The first thing we recommend is to measure where your new furniture will be, mark the area using newspaper or tape to ensure your new furniture will fit, with space to open doors and drawers, check you can move around your bedroom and use your space as intended. Think about access to your home, measure your hallway and doorframes to ensure your new furniture will fit. For more information ask our staff in store for help.

Think about how much storage you need. We have lots of options for wardrobes, chest of drawers and cabinets, all available in a range of styles and sizes so you can find the right fit for your bedroom.      

We have a great range of wardrobes available in a range of options whether you want all hanging space or the addition of drawers and shelves. Sliding wardrobes are a great idea if you want to save space as you don’t need to think about room to open your wardrobe doors.

When it comes to chest of drawers we have various height, width and drawer combinations available. If you have a compact bedroom, a narrow yet tall chest of drawers is a good option to offer lots of storage space without taking up much floor space. 

We have a range of bedside tables in various sizes with handy drawers and cupboards to store those bedside essentials. Making your bedroom as clutter free as possible will help to create more space and an environment in which to relax. 


We have numerous dressing tables that are great for providing a space to get ready. Available in a range of sizes and many available with a mirror and drawers for storing jewellery and cosmetics. Most of our dressing tables are part of a range so you can match your dressing table to your mirror, stool or chest of drawers to get a coordinated bedroom look.

Have you chosen the overall look and style of your bedroom? Here’s some ideas for inspiration.


Modern – If you’re after a modern style bedroom think cool colours and clean minimalist style. High gloss wardrobes and contemporary styled storage options such as our Monte Carlo and Nolte ranges offer the ideal sleek and stylish look for a modern bedroom. 


Warm and Romantic – If you want to create a bedroom that is soft and romantic then look at oak furniture for your statement pieces. Furniture with curves and embellishments will add an elegant, feminine style such as our La Rochelle and Charlotte ranges. 


Classic – If you love the idea of a classic, traditional look then go for wooden furniture that has timeless style.  Check out our Haven and Bordeaux bedroom ranges. Or if you want a more simple Scandinavian style our Elise collection is ideal.


If you want a coordinated bedroom look you can shop a whole range or mix and match to create your desired look. 

Soft furnishings and accessories can add those finishing touches to complete your bedroom look. We have a range of mirrors, rugs, lamps and pictures available in-store and online. If you have space and want to add some upholstery consider a chaise longue or an armchair to create a relaxing corner in your bedroom.
