A bedroom set is exactly what you need if you want to go from "a room with some furniture in" to "the cohesive bedroom of your dreams"! Practical and delightfully consistent when it comes to both materials and designs, these furniture sets can solve all your storage and décor problems in one go.
However, given the central role that they play, it's important to choose a bedroom set that helps you achieve the feel and style that you're after, matches your needs, and won't need to be replaced in a couple of years.
This is not the time to rest (yet)! Keep our tips in mind so that you can understand what you need before you start browsing.
Before we tell you all about the different types of bedroom sets, you should first figure out if you're happy to go for one of these all-in-one solutions or if you're still considering buying individual pieces instead.
Let us make things easier for you:
Bedroom sets are the best option to achieve a cohesive look, as each piece follows the same design and finish;
Choosing a bedroom set is much more practical and easier than going for individual pieces: instead of having to compare dozens of different beds and then do the same for bedstands, chests of drawers and dressers, you'll find everything in one place; once you've spotted a handful of bedroom sets that you can see yourself falling in love with, it'll be a breeze to compare their features;
Because you're buying them as a 'bundle', bedroom sets are usually much cheaper than purchasing each piece of furniture individually (always a plus!);
Not only you can find bedroom sets with different items to cater to any scenario, but you can often customize them even further: for example, by adding a second nightstand or two identical chests of drawers for extra storage.
Bedroom sets are available in lots of different combinations, which is particularly handy if you already happen to own a specific item or, on the contrary, don't really need one.
These are the most popular pieces of furniture that are usually included in a set:
Bed: the core of your bedroom, it'll be the first thing to grab your attention whenever you walk in, so make sure you find a stylish bed frame that you won't get tired of.
They're mainly available in standard designs, more noticeable sleigh shapes, storage models, or majestic canopies;
Design aside, you also need to choose between standard and platform bed frames: standard models with fewer slats are cheaper but require you to buy a box spring (or use the one you already own) as they aren't sturdy enough to directly support a mattress; platform beds can either consist of a solid base or a higher number of slats (with less than 2.5" between them), meaning that, although they're a bit more expensive, you won't need to purchase a separate box spring.
Don't forget that most bedroom sets do not include a mattress: if you already own one, you should check the measurements to make sure they're compatible with the set that you like the look of;
Bedstands: most bedroom sets include one bedstand, but you can usually decide to add more.
We recommend measuring the exact space where you're planning on placing your bed and bedstands and subtracting the length of the bed included in a specific set to know how much room you've got to play with.
Stay on the small side, though, in order to allow some room in between them and avoid a cluttered feel.
Chest of drawers: this will be your main storage space or it could even be the only large drawer-based piece of furniture if you don't need a dresser (perhaps you already have a large mirror in the room or feel like a separate piece wouldn't leave you much space?).
We recommend running a quick inventory of what you own so that you can figure out how many drawers you're going to need;
Dresser: this piece of furniture can give you some extra storage space or even steal the function of chests of drawers if you'd rather opt for a wider and shorter design that includes a mirror.
As well as what you personally like the look of, consider durability and practicality when choosing the material for your new bedroom set:
Thanks to its durability and versatility, wood is the best material for bedroom sets and it helps keep the entire room consistent; depending on its design, it can easily work with different styles, from the most traditional to the most modern rooms.
Keep in mind that lighter wooden finishes are a handy choice for smaller rooms as they make them look bigger, whereas darker ones can help you make larger bedrooms feel cozier and add a conscious dramatic feel.
A metal bed frame is another sturdy and durable option which usually involves thinner and more streamlined shapes that might suit your taste better; they can also be a bit cheaper than most wooden models;
Upholstered elements are mainly included in bed frames, and are a more comfortable choice if you like to sit up to read or watch the TV before going to sleep; however, you can sometimesfind bedroom sets that include upholstered furniture, too.
Upholstered sets might not be the best option if you've got mischievous pets, both because they collect hair and… aren't they just the perfect texture to gnaw at or scratch their claws?
Rarer but certainly attention-grabbing, wicker or rattan bedroom sets are a durable and eco-friendly option that allows you to create a relaxed and casual atmosphere while still showcasing your good taste in décor; however, do keep in mind that these sets require extra care.
While you can amplify it with details and decorative elements, your bedroom set will hold the most responsibility when it comes to defining a décor style!
Take the time to decide what type of décor you'd like to go for before choosing a bedroom set, so that you know exactly what to look for:
If you're after a modern feel, opt for sets that focus on functionality rather than grandiose elements and bed frames: look for simple, sleek shapes, light wood or upholstered features;
Darker wood, thin but long drawers, and furniture with outward-pointing legs are clear indicators of your love for the nostalgic atmosphere created by mid-Century modern décor;
For a clutter-free minimalist room, choose beds with less noticeable headboards, furniture with thinner shapes (especially when it comes to their legs), and simple designs without excessively decorative features;
Minimalist bedroom sets are perfect to achieve a Scandinavian feel, too, but try and stick to natural wood in lighter finishes and combine it to a natural color such as white, yellow, gray, dark blue or forest green;
If you're fascinated by quaint shabby chic elements, stick to white or light pastel colors, either as painted wood or upholstered elements; choose the most ornate bed frames and furniture with lots of decorative features, such as harmonious legs and precious drawer handles;
To give justice to the grandiosity of French country styles, look for tall and ornate bed frames (white or in clear colors), dressers that include oval mirrors with very decorative frames, or elegant upholstery; why not go the extra mile with a sumptuous canopy frame and drapey curtains?
Bare designs featuring wooden and metal elements and focusing on functionality rather than lots of decorative details are perfect for industrial décor; the most recognizable element would probably be a floor bed with a wooden platform but no legs;
Want to showcase your bohemian approach to life? Choose a bedroom set made of wood or wicker, but look for peculiar shapes, the most colorful details, quirky designs, or - why not? - a beautiful canopy.
