Wooden Bedroom Furniture
Using wooden furniture as part of your bedroom decor can add a very beautiful touch to the room. Whether you want a formal, traditional, or country-cottage look for your bedroom, wooden beds will compliment nearly any style.
While some people prefer a more modern looking bed, and thus choose leather beds or beds with velvet headboard upholstery, you may be surprised at how many wooden beds actually look very modern. And if you want a truly beautiful room, wooden furniture is almost always more elegant than leather, no matter what you may think of those shiny leather beds in the shop front.
For a rich, elegant look, try a bed and wardrobe set of dark wood, or choose a bed frame and other furniture in lovely brown walnut wood.
If you’re looking for something a little lighter and brighter, try natural oak furniture, or choose wooden furniture that has been painted in a light shade such as white or cream.
White furniture often makes a room look larger. But black and dark brown colours are often thought of as more sophisticated.
If you’re decorating in a country-cottage or shabby chic style, try all natural wood furniture or rustic shades of grey. You can often find wood furniture that hasn’t been varnished, or pieces that show natural lines and knotholes from the trees. You can also find new, modern beds that have been fashioned in a vintage style. This is very popular right now.
If you want your bedroom to look elegant or sophisticated you are better off to buy an entire furniture set. But if you want an old fashioned, shabby chic feel, sometimes mismatched furniture looks good. You can buy some new pieces and some older pieces from antique shops or charity shops.
Above all, choose furniture that you really like. It’s an investment, and chances are something you will use for years.
