7 Tips for Choosing a Bedroom Set That Fits Your Home’s Style

It’s time. Your bedroom needs a facelift. The only problem is that you’re unsure about the direction you want to take.

Should you go rogue and turn your bedroom into an otherworldly escape hatch? Or would you prefer to have it match your home’s established style?

Both work. But if you’re shooting for the latter, we’ve got some tips to help you get started and make wise decisions along the way.

1. Determine Your Style

The first matter of business is determining your home’s style. Is it modern, eclectic, eco-friendly, classic, sci-fi-inspired, or something else altogether?

Creating mood boards is a fun and effective way to navigate this initial inquiry process. Not only will it determine where you are, but it will also help define your vision.

2. Assess Your Budget

We’d all love to have an unlimited budget. But for most folks, that surpasses the realm of possibility. So, step two is mapping out your money.

Don’t worry if your allowable haul seems small. There are plenty of ways to stretch a decorating dollar by leveraging social media and old-fashioned bargain hunting.

3. Consider the Space

Next up is considering the space in question. Is it big or little? Do you want an open concept, or are you more about making it a cozy corner teaming with items you love?

When analyzing the space as a redecorating platform, consider ways you can pull the rest of the home’s style onto the canvas. Ask yourself how to highlight color palettes, keep a good energy flow, and work with the structure’s natural lighting.

4. Define Furniture Needs

Are you replacing your entire bedroom furniture set, or are you looking to upgrade a few pieces? Pinpointing essential items is a great way to stay on budget.

When weighing options, look at choices in conjunction with other pieces in your home. If you lived in a studio apartment, would they work together? A yes signals a cohesive aesthetic mood.

5. Define Accessory Needs

Sometimes, a sensational bedroom overhaul is achieved by swapping out accessories. Could this work for you? If so, make a list of plush pillows, comfortable throws, striking art, and life-changing drapes.

If your budget is supreme-lean, search for low-cost lookalike options. They’re everywhere!

And remember: You don’t need to buy everything at once.

6. Don’t Overanalyze

Analysis paralysis is a common hurdle when redecorating. Options abound, and sometimes, the wealth of choices makes everything more overwhelming and less clear.

Avoid overburdening yourself with too many “deep decisions” during the process.

Instead, when you see something that catches your eye, put it in a “like folder.” Then, habitually delete anything you don’t viscerally love every two days. But don’t overanalyze! Trust your first instincts and keep it moving.

7. Don’t Rush

Patience is a virtue when shopping for a bedroom set that fits your home’s style.

We get it. You’re eager to usher in a life-affirming decor tweak. Heck, we’re excited for you! But if you rush the process, you probably won’t be as happy as possible with the final result.

So give yourself space and time. No, it probably shouldn’t take a year, but allow yourself a few months to explore ideas and hone in on the perfect pieces.

We hope these tips for choosing a bedroom set that fits your style were helpful. Good luck with your redecoration!
