The best bedroom furniture from beds to bedroom storage

Synchronised sets or statement piece, we’ve come up with a list of bedroom furniture ideas to make your space your own

TODO alt text

Your bedroom is a room where everything should be just right, whether that means picking a matching bedroom furniture set, or individual items strategically chosen to complement your bedroom design

If you’re starting with a blank canvas, you’ll need to get the basics in order first. Beds, bedside tables, wardrobes and chests of drawers should be at the top of your priority list. Once you've chosen those, you’ll know how much space you have left over for complementary items, such as a dressing table, a desk or even an ottoman for the end of your bed.

While buying a bedroom furniture set is a cost-effective way of decorating your bedroom, unique items allow you to channel your artistic flair and really make your bedroom your own. If buying a bedroom furniture set is your chosen option, retailers like Wayfair and John Lewis offer plenty of choice… perhaps too much choice if you don’t quite know what you’re after! 

On the other hand, if you’re looking for statement bedroom furniture, online retailers such as MADE and Not on the High Street are the go-to places for unique items that will make your bedroom stand out from the rest. 

Our list features a selection of traditional furniture sets and unique statement pieces. Those who love a traditional bedroom design may want to take a look at our Three Posts Hamptonburgh Oak Bedroom Set from Wayfair, while those who would prefer their room to have a modern edge may want to consider our Hokku Designs Khabat Bedroom Set for clean, white lines. 

For that statement piece, the Classic Five Drawer Dressing Table is a must for anyone with a penchant for shabby chic, while the feminine Cairn bedside table will really make your bedroom stand out from the crowd. 

When it comes down to it, searching for bedroom furniture is actually pretty hard. Quite a lot of the time, you know what you want, but it’s finding what you want within your price bracket that is the most difficult part of the search. Finding bedroom storage furniture that suits your taste can be even harder. We’ve selected a range of furniture to meet various price brackets, so you know where to head to find your perfect piece.

Units are neatly covered, so you can keep on stacking until you reach your required height; the only niggle is you’ll have to remove the above sections if you need something stored away in the bottom unit.
