If you want your bedroom to look comfortable and relaxed, wooden bedroom furniture is an excellent way to start. There are various types of wood that can be used, depending on your colors of choice throughout the rest of the room.
Your choice in woods and colors can help transform a non-descript room into a place where you can escape the rigors of the day, and let your worries drift away. Cherry furniture will look elegant in your room, and the nicest of pieces can be heirlooms, to be passed down to your children. Cherry wood tends to darken as it ages, so wooden bedroom furniture of this type actually becomes more beautiful as it ages.
Some bedroom sets are made from cheaper woods, sometimes with a veneer that is applied last. These may still be attractive pieces, but they won’t have the same quality and increasing beauty as they age. Don’t stray far from the hard woods, if you want wooden bedroom furniture that will last throughout the years.
Cheaper woods can be used for first apartments and older children’s dorm rooms, but they won’t stand up to the rigors of everyday use like hard woods will. These pieces of wooden bedroom furniture will never be passed down, probably, but they still can serve their purpose while you have them. Furniture in dorm bedrooms is usually not taken care of as well as pieces you keep in your master bedroom, so it’s not such a big deal if the cheaper furniture gets water marks or scratches on it.
You can also buy unstained wooden bedroom furniture, and stain it to go with the style and look you wish for, in your master suite. Even if they are not made from top quality hard woods, you can stain them and they will be very serviceable. In this way, you can make cheaper pieces look more expensive, and stain them in colors that go well with your decor. Staining unfinished furniture will give you a chance to have usable pieces while you are saving to purchase more expensive wooden bedroom furniture.
The first step most people make when furnishing their bedroom is selecting the perfect bed. It should reflect your style, and not be too large for the room you will be using it in. If you are expecting a baby and don’t have a nursery, you may want to allow room for a crib, too. Cribs can be of the same tone and style as the rest of your wooden bedroom furniture, and some cribs can be converted into beds for toddlers simply by using the crib headboard. As your child grows, the side crib rails can be used for the headboard, making a twin size bed. This allows you to keep the same color and tone of wooden bedroom furniture through the years.
In decorating a bedroom that serves as a nursery too, you may be able to get a crib that can grow with the child until he gets a room of his own. Whether you are decorating a master bedroom or a room for your guests, wooden bedroom furniture will serve you well for years.
