Bed Frames

Out of all the rooms in the home, the bedroom is often a sanctuary. It’s a place you go at the end of the day to relax and unwind, to meditate or to read and of course, to get a restful night’s sleep. Perhaps you’re extremely satisfied with your mattress and box spring but it’s time to make a change as far as scenery goes. A transformation from the old into a more modern look with mid-century bedroom furniture is an exciting idea. It all starts with your bed frame — and then you can work from there through your other furniture and, lastly, to your accessories. Here at west elm, we have everything you need to keep your bedroom stylish yet cozy and comfortable.

Search for a bed frame that works well for your needs. A king bed frame fits a king-sized mattress and will take up a good portion of the room. For larger bedrooms, that’s a superb idea. For smaller rooms, you may want to consider opting for a platform bed frame, which offers you necessary storage underneath if you're short on space. Once you’ve decided on a bed frame, it’s then time to move on to your bureaus and dressers. Low dressers, or a nightstand, are the ideal accompaniments to place next to your bed. If you choose one with drawers or storage space, then you have room for intimates or socks as well as a space to store needed items you want close at hand, such as your reading glasses, cellphone or keys. A nightstand is also a good place for a table lamp, to get reading in before bedtime.

When it comes to larger bedroom dressers, typically you want to stay in the same color scheme as your bed frame and nightstand, but when you’re decorating mid-century and modern, there are no rules. Go with whatever makes your room feel comfortable and makes it a place you enjoy going to after a long day.

Once you’ve decided on your furniture, it’s time to decorate and polish the look. Search for accessories that give the room a pop of color, which is accomplished easily with your choice of window treatments as well as rugs or decor. When it comes to bedding sets, look for lush, soft sheets you like to feel against your skin, along with a warm duvet cover or comforter for winter, and a matching light quilt for summer. With the use of accessory pillows, you’ll also be able to enliven the room.
