Bedroom is a place, which is not only the most essential room of our home but also the place where our body relaxes the most.

So whenever it comes to the bedroom we have to think of a better way to decorate our bedroom.

Decorating doesn’t mean to fill the room with blunders but to put at least things that are essential for the bedroom.

Here in this article, we will discover the most important items we need in a bedroom without which the bedroom will look incomplete.


We keep a nightstand at the side of our bed, but why is a nightstand necessary when it comes to our bedroom?

A nightstand is used in many ways which not only makes our work easier in the bedroom. But also looks sober, like you are reading a book and you want to sleep suddenly, now to keep the book on the shelf you have to get up to reach the shelf.

But now if you have a nightstand you can keep on it, and later in the morning shift the book on the shelf.

Moreover, instead of finding places to keep a lamp, you can put the lamp on the nightstand.

So it will be easy to reach and light will be reaching enough distance which will help you to read. 

Chest of drawers

Do you find difficulty in finding things? Do you forget things after keeping them? You don’t know how to manage things largely in number?

Then you should not miss keeping the chest of the drawer in your bedroom.

This chest of drawers will not only help you to manage your things but will save you precious time.

In the past, the chest of drawers was used to store clothes, because it was believed that storing clothes in drawers was easier than in wardrobe as the wardrobe was not that famous at that time.

That is the reason that in the past the chest of drawers was the most item in the bedroom.


We don’t usually notice the curtains we use at our home, but yes when we go to other homes we definitely started judging them if they don’t have a good taste in color or material of the curtain.

Now the point is what type of curtain will best for our bedroom, first let’s talk about the material of the curtain.

When it comes to material, light-weighted, loosely woven, curtains are suitable which absorb less heat, or else it will increase the room temperature.

So you should buy lace fabric, nylon net, cotton, muslin for the bedroom curtain.

Now if we talk about the color then you should keep two things in your mind:

#1 If the wall is light in color then the curtain should be dark and vice-versa.

#2 If the sunlight is directed toward the sides of your curtain then choose only light colors.


You should always be aware of which type of rug you are buying for your bedroom.

Three things are important in this aspect:

#1 Your rug should match with your room color. Like if your room is black then the rug should be white or some stripe pattern to match with the room, because if the color of the rug and the room color mismatches it will look horrible.

#2 The material of the rug should be soft and comfy because the rug will be spread in half of your bedroom so. Don’t use rug which can capture dust and fur easily, especially if you are a pet lover choose the right material for the rug.

#3 The size of the rug depends on the size of the room, if the room is small then the size of the rug will be small and if the room is large then the size of the rug should be enough to cover two-thirds of the room. The sisal rug is considered to be the best rug to be used in a bedroom.


So no doubt that bedding is the most essential thing in a bedroom, without bedding you can’t use your bed, your whole bedroom will look incomplete.

There is a direct relation between bedding and the quality of sleep you get from it.

If the material of your bedding is best then surely you will get good sleep due to it.

The bedding should not only be of good material but also they should be clean and smell good so that you don’t feel tired when you use it.

It is said as the best colors for the bedding are white, ivory, or beige but the problem with these sets of light colors is they get dirty easily and come in highlight.


We know lamps are used when we don’t want to use bright lights in our room. But do lamps are considered to be one of the essential items of the bedroom?

Yes, there is no doubt in this fact that the lamp is important when it comes to the bedroom because Light of the lamp is soothing to the eyes; they are warm and give you a peaceful feeling whenever you turn the lamp on.

Lamps help you to work without disturbing your partner, you can easily read your favorite books and your partner can sleep without fighting with you to turn off the lights.


Your bedroom will look boring if there are no books on it but not many of us are book lovers?

Oh sorry, I said wrong many of us are book lovers, it can be magazines, comics, novels, journals, etc.

People mention the book corner to be a happy corner because they feel happy whenever they read books, it not only enriches their vocabulary but also increases their knowledge.
