When selecting a bedroom set for girls, you will want to keep a few things in mind. Things such as selecting furniture that is adaptable to her changing interests, durable and affordable pieces, and maximizing the space you have are all important.
First, you will want to select key pieces of furniture. For example, a bed, night table, dresser, toy boxes, desk, and storage unit are all classic and essential. Choosing furniture in a neutral color or wood finish will allow you to easily update your girl’s room whether it’s changing the wall paint color or switching decorative themes. Furniture made from durable hardwood and wood composite is both appealing and overall, reasonably priced at most retail stores. With so many options for wood finish, you can tailor the look of the furniture to your specific desired aesthetic, and these pieces can last through your child’s lifetime.
A trend that is back on the rise is a bunk bed, which offers an excellent solution for extra space if you have two children in one room. Even if you only have one child in the bedroom, a bunk bed can be used to house a desk underneath. Sometimes a popular choice in girls’ bedroom sets is a canopy bed, which can be found in wood, metal, and pewter options. Other bed sets are even sold with matching drawers for storage underneath the bed, helping to satisfy that seemingly insatiable need for extra space in a child’s room.
Being savvy about including extra storage will help as your girl grows into her room throughout the years. Some headboards on beds come with built in shelving. You may choose a dresser top with additional shelving. You can even shop for a modular unit that offers many different combinations of storage units for a customizable bedroom. These sets are usually easy to assemble and can be rearranged for varying furniture needs through the years.
A tall dresser allows for more floor space, making more area available for bookshelves or toy boxes. If your priority is maximizing a small space, there are options for corner shelves and corner storage, which helps to utilize typically unused space in a bedroom. Corner shelves that stand on the floor can be used for books or collectibles. Corner storage that hangs between the intersections of two walls can provide a place for stuffed animals and other treasured play items.
When choosing a design for your girl’s bedroom set, your options are practically endless. When looking at girls’ bedroom sets, you can choose from accented wooden carvings, curved or embellished metal piece. You can also stick to classic, traditional lines that pair well with the changing trends throughout the years. Some furniture can be painted or decorated according to preference. For example, tea pot knobs on dresser drawers or pink and purple painted furniture are typical little girl features. Some furniture even boasts a more sophisticated look, like floral carvings, beadboard accents, and turned legs on the bottom of the furniture pieces. There are cottage-style furniture sets in cream and white, scroll loop designs and pewter canopies, timeless ironwork in antique distressed finish, and stepped cap molding on headboards and footboards.
With all of these options, the most important thing to remember when choosing a bedroom set for your girl is to know what she likes and how to make it work within your budget and own personal touches.
