Know your style. This may seem simple enough, but note that ‘your‘ is also plural. You need to know what works for you AND your partner together. That is the point, after all, correct? If you love contemporary and your trusty sidekick is a traditionalist at heart, heads will butt. Sleek lines and darker finishes paired with ornate detailing and a canopy bed may not gel well together. Research, research, research and find something that suits you mutually. Perhaps you can compromise and purchase a platform bed in an oak finish or a poster bed with a dark espresso finish. A relationship will blossom if you introduce your two styles: classic, meet contemporary; contemporary, meet classic.
Know your budget. If you are sleeping on a hand-me-down mattress, you likely already do know your budget, but it‘s also important to look at this new bedroom set as an investment, not unlike your relationship. Put in a little, get a little. Put in a little more effort, get a lot. Buying a quality bedroom set can last until your silver anniversary. Your relationship won‘t unless you buck up and fill your bedroom with stylish, romantic bedroom furniture. Give each other a reason to want to head to the bedroom again.
Know your quantity. Do you like a more sparsely filled room, or do you like the look of a lot of matching pieces? You can choose bedroom furniture sets that come with any or all beds, chests of drawers, armoires, nightstands, and mirrors. If closet space is minimal, choosing a set with an armoire just makes good sense and will reduce unnecessary "your space; my space" fights. With two people, there are instantly two sides of the bed and therefore two bedside tables are compulsory. Be sure that you get enough bedroom furniture for both of you. You‘re a team now. There‘s no "I" in team.
Another easier and less expensive method to come up with a bedroom design is to plan it around a coordinated bedding set. Not as much fun or as unique as bringing to life your own idea, but it can work. Some of these sets have matching accessories like pillow, curtains, lamps and at times furniture. You can redo a whole bedroom with a complimentary look in a pinch and in one stop at the store!
