There is no doubt that the pandemic changed the way we live and work, and it only makes sense that those changes would also affect furniture trends. Today’s bedroom furniture isn’t just about comfort, it’s about versatility and meeting the needs of the connected technological world. This brief guide will give you ideas for your new bedroom, but if you need more ideas for your bed sets, visit https://www.1stopbedrooms.com/bedroom/bedroom-sets.
Comfort and functionality are still key
Regardless of which room in your home you are redesigning, comfort and functionality are now much more important than style. Modern bedroom sets embrace this, making it easy to find the perfect bed set to meet your needs. Upholstered headboards can add some comfort while choosing the right nightstands and other pieces of furniture can add the functionality you need.
If you are working from home, you might want to consider getting more bedroom furniture than just a bed and nightstands. Vanities are often an optional piece in bedroom furniture sets, and they work well as a makeshift or temporary desk. A small shelf or additional nightstand can round out the workstation and give you a place to stash all of your work things.
New ways of managing your devices
Over 90% of Americans have one or more smart devices, from phones to tablets and all of the Bluetooth accessories society has embraced. Where do you charge all of those devices? Particularly in the bedroom, you’re a bit limited on the space available near outlets to charge such things. Furniture brands know this, so they have started designing furniture to meet this demand.
You can get bedroom sets that have built-in lights and USB ports in the headboard, as well as those with nightstands that offer charging stations. Media chests are great for cord management as well, and if you don’t have a DVD player or game console to take up the shelf you can easily adapt it for use as a charging station.
More places to sit in the bedroom
Because our bedrooms are no longer used for just sleeping and dressing, it is important to have a few different seating options. There are two main ways that you can add seating to your bedroom. The first is to choose a corner for an accent chair and footstool or ottoman. An accent chair that matches the new bedroom set should be easy to find, especially if you look within the same brand or furniture collections.
The other thing you can do is add an optional bedroom bench to your bed set. Benches are great for getting dressed in the morning or preparing for bed at night. Many bedroom furniture sets now include a bedroom bench for this purpose. Many bedroom benches – and ottomans – have interior storage that can also be helpful.
