How to Decorate Your Bedroom: A Sanctuary for Rest and Relaxation

When decorating your bedroom, it is important to keep in mind the purpose of the room. Many people see the bedroom as a place to sleep and nothing more. However, for others, the bedroom is a sanctuary – a place where they can rest and recuperate from the tiring events of the day. If this sounds like you, then you want your bedroom to be as peaceful and calming as possible. In this blog post, we will discuss how to decorate your bedroom using furniture from Couch Potatoes.

How to Create a Comfortable Space

Your bedroom should be a haven – a place where you can relax and feel at ease. To achieve this, decorate your bedroom with furniture that promotes comfort.

  • A bookcase for storing favorite books and accessories is also a nice touch. 
  • In addition to comfort, you also want your bedroom to be visually appealing. After all, this is the room where you will be spending a lot of time. Consider adding some décor items that reflect your personal style.

Finding the Right Bed

The first step in decorating your bedroom is finding the right bed. This is the most important piece of furniture in the room, as it will be where you spend the majority of your time. At Couch Potatoes, we have a wide variety of beds to choose from, we also have mattresses (sold separately).

This Rebel King Bed is mid-century modern, with an upholstered, square-tufted, thickly padded headboard. It has an appearance that jumps right out at you with its angled tapered legs and round edges. There is also the Rebel Queen Bed if you find you don't need all the extra space of a king-size bed.

Imagine sleeping on the Cascade King Bed. Nice, right? This storage platform bed is low to the ground and casual in its design. The discreetly designed drawers optimize storage space if your bedroom or closet is more on the smaller size. The Cascade Queen Bed is also available, and just as stylish.

Now, this is a good-looking bed. This is the Wallace Queen Bed, and it's a beautiful upholstered bed, that looks like it was taken straight out of some online influencer's Instagram. It's mid century and contemporary all at the same time. The low platform and thin legs make it look light and airy, perfect for small bedrooms.

Picking the Perfect Dresser

After you've found the bed of your dreams, it's time to move on to finding the perfect dresser. This piece of furniture is just as important as the bed, as it will be where you store your clothes. At Couch Potatoes, we have a wide variety of dressers to choose from.

This radiant piece of furniture is the Sun Dresser. It has six drawers, so you can store all of your clothes in one place. The drawers feature dovetail joinery to interlock them together for a solidly made piece. There is also the Sun Mirror if you'd like to have a place in your bedroom to check your "just woke up" look before you get ready for the day.

Rebel Dresser

Remember the Rebel King Bed up above? Well, this is the Rebel Dresser. It's a perfect match to the bed, and it has an equally stylish design. The dresser has six drawers with felt-lined top drawers. The rounded edges, dark walnut finish, and gunmetal hardware make this a beautiful mid-century modern piece for your bedroom. Add the Rebel Mirror, and you've got a complete set.

The Live Edge Dresser has natural wood accents that look like you just carved this out of the nearby forest. The smooth surface and spacious six drawers are just what every dresser should have. The Live Edge Collection at Couch Potatoes has similar furniture with that "natural wood" appearance that stands out.

Chest of Drawers Instead

Maybe you don't have enough space for a long horizontal dresser, or you just don't like the way they look. Chests can be a great alternative to dressers, and we have a few of those at Couch Potatoes as well.

The Sun Chest really saves on space. You have four smaller drawers, one large drawer, and a door that opens to reveal two shelves. Have you got some bulky clothes? Use the larger shelves. It's versatile for your organization, and that's what people need.

rustic chestnut dresser

Have you ever seen a sophisticated chest such as this Warner Chest? Maybe, but this one ranks pretty high. The rustic chestnut finish and clean lines make it a simple, yet visually appealing piece of furniture. You can't go wrong with 5 drawers all made with English dovetail joinery for maximum durability.

Choosing the Right Nightstand

Nightstands are necessary pieces of furniture for your bedroom. Whether you're the type to wake up in the middle of the night and reach around in the darkness desperately for your water bottle, or you need a place to store your extra books that you can't seem to stop buying, you're going to need a place to put everything.

The Live Edge Nightstand is so cute. It's a little block of wood, with a lot of personality. The asymmetrical design and faded look give it a modern edge, and its smokey walnut and coffee bean finish will warm your bedroom right up.

distressed oak gray nightstand

This is the Nathan Nightstand and its distressed oak gray is perfect for a more rustic or farmhouse-style bedroom. The two drawers provide ample storage space, while the metal hardware gives it a touch of industrial chic.

nightstand with USB port

The Cascade Nightstand may only have one drawer, but this one drawer is felt-lined for storage and includes a power plug complete with a USB port! The simple design means it can go with any style of décor, and the weathered light finish will give your bedroom a touch of warmth.

Create Your Comfy Space

You don't realize how much you need a space that is your own until you finally have it. By arranging it the way you want and filling it with things you love, your bedroom can finally be the cozy oasis you've been dreaming of. So go ahead and decorate your bedroom with furniture from Couch Potatoes! You won't regret it.
