5 Unique Bedroom Furniture Ideas

Bedrooms shouldn’t be boring. Add a touch of personality to them with these 5 unique bedroom furniture ideas. 

1 | Beside Tables

The 1st bedroom furniture idea is the overused and under appreciated bedside table. Normally when you think of bedroom furniture, you think of a matching set. The bedframe should match the nightstands which match the dresser. But that’s not the case anymore. Our designers love to mix it up by adding accent tables or end tables, that are normally meant for the living room! 

More recently though our designers have thought outside the box by utilizing vintage items such as antique suitcases and chairs.

2 | Bed Frames

Step outside of the norm and add in a bold bed frame as a focal point to your bedroom. There are so many different options for a unique bed frame, that the tough part won’t be finding one but choosing one! It’s a good idea to narrow it down by knowing what your design style is.

3 | Headboards

If you don’t want to go with a full bed frame, you can also choose to do a unique headboard instead. Our designers love doing custom headboards that are more of a décor item in itself, rather than just a headboard. Try adding custom made cushions and hanging them off a drapery rod behind your bed. We also love this IKEA headboard with built in storage space.

4 | Ditch the Dresser

Most new homes nowadays have huge walk in closets. Which asks the question – why do you even need a dresser? A dresser is one of those things that we have just always had, our grandparents had one, our parents had one, and so on. But does that mean you have to to? 

Make use of that extra space in your room by adding a unique console table, or maybe even a bench for somewhere to sit and put your socks on.

5 | Add a Bold Element

This last bedroom furniture idea isn’t really furniture related, but we had to mention it. 

Be BOLD. Add in a statement component to your bedroom that will have you wanting to go to bed. This could be in the form of a feature wall, a large & unique art piece or even some fun drapery panels. This is your space, and should reflect your personality. The rest of the house can be simple, but your room doesn’t get much traffic (usually!) so spice it up a bit and be unique. Be you

How to Decorate a Bedroom for the Cooler Seasons

In our last Fall themed blog, we show you how to decorate a bedroom for the cooler seasons. The bedroom is a place where you really want to be able to relax with a good book, maybe do some journaling or even, you know, sleep. Now that the heat isn’t so overwhelming, you can really bring in those comfy cozy elements to warm right up. 

Chelsi incorporated the same items purchased from HomeSense to show you how to decorate a bedroom for Fall and into Winter too. If you missed our other Fall inspired design blogs, click here!

Switch Out Your Bedding

The first item that Chelsi suggests switching up is your bed sheets and duvet or quilt. Time to put the light, airy Summer sheets away and bring back the big fluffy comforter or duvet. 

Volume is key to getting that cozy look of something you can just sink right into and relax. 

Try adding in flannel or cotton sheets or a duvet cover to add to the overall feel. Our designers LOVE shopping for sheet sets at Simons Canada. They have super cute designs, and are a great value! Check out some of their newest Flannel sets here. 

Bring In The Layers

Layering your bedding is key to having the cozy comfy feeling. Add a quilt, coverlet or throw blankets as well as add some accent pillows for more fluff. Keep to the classic Autumn hues such as rust, brown, mustard and burgundy. 

When choosing the materials stick with wool, cashmere, fleece and large chunky knits. You can even bring in velvet or fur too. 

If you are on a budget, you don’t need to go crazy with accent pillows either. Just pick out a few larger ones in the Fall colors, and then re use your previous ones. As long as they are a neutral color they will work just fine!

Swap out the easy things

Making seasonal decor changes doesn’t necessarily have to cost a lot, or be a ton of work. You can swap out some easy items around the bedroom for an instant seasonal change! 

Florals – bring in the Autumn greenery such as sunflowers, wheat, eucalyptus or even some branches from your yard! These are all great options for Fall.

Accents – Bring in some patina metals and wood elements through items such as picture frames, a catch all tray or small décor items.

Lampshades – something that tends to get overlooked is the simple lampshade. They are so easy to switch out, allowing the Fall colors to be incorporated into your room a different way. We love these options from Bouclair. 

Prints – lastly, if you have a really good picture frame you can easily put in different prints to coincide with the seasons. Shopping for low priced prints on Etsy is a great way to go about this. Once purchased, they will send you a digital download  to send to your local printer. Then using your existing frame, swap the old print out for the new one and voila! Instant change!
