The kitchen might be the heart of a home, but nothing beats out a good place to rest your head at the end of a long, hard day. A comfortable bed, a place to put your clothing away neatly – these are important things in anyone’s life. But you want something a little more than just a place to lie down and put stuff away. You might want something on which to feast your eyes, a retreat where you can rest your mind as well as your body. To that end, there are some components that you might find desirable for your bedroom.
Of all the parts of your bedroom that are needed, the bed is the most important. You need a place where you can lie down. It needs to be soft enough to comfort tired bones, but firm enough to support your frame without sagging. The springs need to be in good condition, and the mattress free of lumps. The color of the head and foot boards should be something that appeals to your artistic senses and blends well with your overall home décor. A platform bed frame supports a box spring and mattress.
The nightstand or bedside table is important for creating comfort. It gives a place to put a bedside lamp, to have a glass of water, your glasses (if you wear them) and perhaps a book or e-reader, as well as your alarm clock and any other small items that you like to have on hand at bedtime.
A dresser provides a place to put vanity items, such as brushes, combs, make-up (if you wear it), tissues and other things that you might need when getting ready to go out into the world. It will usually have a drawer in which to store things.
Chest of Drawers, High-Boy or Similar Storage
Some things just will not fit in a dresser drawer, but need to be stored flat in a protected area. A chest of drawers offers a good place for sweaters and other items that do not do well on hangers. In combination, these pieces of furniture will give you a secure place to keep the items that you need to prepare yourself for the world, while the bed will give you a place to rest from your labors at the end of the day. Here are ten bedroom suites that might appeal to you.
