The selection of contemporary bedroom furniture is a tricky thing. Human nature is to put all sorts of pieces of furniture in a bedroom to make it cozy, but contemporary dÃ©cor would not approve. So, let's look at the two things that are most important when selecting yours.
First it has to be contemporary. That means the pieces of furniture have sleek and crisp lines and give it a very modern or industrial feel. The furniture should also have plenty of room with the room looking border-line scarce, while still being functional.
Next, this is a bedroom we're talking about, so it has to feel like a bedroom. The most important consideration is the bed. This is the focus of the room and the part of the room you are going to use the most (thus the name of the room) make sure it's the centerpiece.
Now you need to look at the space you have in your bedroom and see how little of it you can use.
If we are working with a cavernous master suite, things will be just fine. As mentioned before, contemporary bedroom furniture is supposed to have space. Part of the contemporary look is that it is clean and clear of clutter. That means you need to be able to see a good portion of the floor space for this to work. Large bedrooms are not a problem as you can spread things out.
But if you have a smaller bedroom, you could hit a snag. Make a list of what you absolutely have to have. A bed, a pair of nightstands and a dresser. How big of a dresser do you need? Can you make do with one? Can you even make do with a smaller than regular one? What about a taller, thinner high-boy dresser? It will still offer a similar amount of storage while making a smaller footprint on the floor plan.
If you're worried about having enough storage space, think about hidden storage that you may be able to add. Why does your bed only have to be a bed? If you get a captain's style bed, it will have a set of drawers underneath that will allow you space to tuck more things away without it taking away from the open look of the room.
Don't forget the accents. Even once you have decided on the larger pieces for your bedroom, you are going to need other things, like lighting, and possibly a small table or chair. Take these items into account as you figure out just how much space is available.
When you begin your contemporary bedroom furniture shopping spree, you can take comfort in the fact that this is a timeless dÃ©cor style, contemporary bedroom furniture that was created in the last century is still very popular, and will blend perfectly well with those new pieces you are purchasing. There are few other furniture styles where you can combine current and old pieces of furniture and still have a room that is looking completely fresh and new.
