When it comes to furnishing our bedrooms, most of us focus on buying a great bed and making sure we have plenty of places to store our wardrobe. While these things are certainly important, the right accent pieces can go a long way to making the bedroom as comfortable as possible. Here’s a look at some of the best accent furniture pieces you can have in your bedroom:
Sure, you probably have a closet and a dresser or chest to store items in. However, there are some items that are best kept in a storage bench, such as blankets, sweaters, handbags, shoes, and more. The nice thing about most storage benches is that they can double as extra seating and they don’t take up much floor space.
Although you can always find space for a small jewelry box, or use your dresser or chest to store your jewelry, this isn’t always the best approach. Jewelry armoires are the perfect solution because they isolate your jewelry from the rest of your wardrobe, which allows you to organize it much more effectively. These accent pieces are especially suited to those who need a lot of space for jewelry storage.
Even though it isn’t necessary to have a place to sit in your bedroom, it can certainly make the room more pleasant! The only problem is, most bedrooms aren’t large enough to accommodate a large piece of furniture, such as a sofa. Rocking chairs solve this problem because they don’t take up as much space and they’re also very comfortable. Add a footstool or an ottoman and a rocking chair will be even more enjoyable because you’ll have a place to rest your feet!
Although we most often associate coat racks with the entryway of a home, they serve a purpose in the bedroom, as well. They’re especially good at holding clothing items such as cardigans, robes, purses, hats, and other items that need to be readily accessible. An extra bonus is that they don’t take up a lot of floor space and can easily fit in a corner of the room. Since some styles are larger than others, you’ll want to select the one that fits best in your bedroom.
Room dividers are a practical and attractive addition to any bedroom that serves more than one purpose. For instance, if the room has more than one person using it for their bedroom, a room divider can be used as a way to give each person his or her own space. You can also use the divider to separate the room so that you can separate the sleeping area from an office or hobby room.
When furnishing your bedroom, it is certainly important to make sure you have the essentials, such as a bed and a dresser. However, the accent pieces are important, as well, because they not only provide extra storage opportunities, but they can also make the bedroom more comfortable.
