Buying bedroom furniture can be an exciting time; unfortunately if you have not shopped for bedroom furniture in awhile or this is your first time to buy bedroom furniture on your own you may not be well versed in the many different kinds of bedroom furniture available.
Confusion about bedroom furniture often arises in the different sizes of beds and mattresses available. The twin or single bed is about the smallest type of bed on the market and while manufacturers differ in the sizes slightly, the standard twin or single size bed measures 39" x 74." If you need a twin or single bed that is slightly wider and longer you might consider the size known as the super single; which measures 48" x 84." The old fashioned or full bed also known as the double bed is measured at 54" x 74". This is the kind of bed that you commonly see in standard hotel rooms. A queen size bed measures at 60" x 70" although you can purchase what is known as the California queen bed, a size that comes in longer than the regular queen bed at 60" x 84." The next size up in bedroom furniture is the king size bed measuring 76" x 80" while the California king size bed measures 70" x 84."
When shopping for new bedroom furniture, you will also need to be aware that there are very different types of furniture and beds. For example, you can get a standard bed or you might think about purchasing a water bed. Today, adjustable comfort level beds are also very popular and a wise choice if you have a sleep partner who prefers a different firmness level than you.
If you happen to be shopping for childrens bedroom furniture, today there are many different styles and designs on the market that will actually change to accommodate the growing needs of your child. These styles often start out as cribs that will convert to toddler beds and beyond. The bed that your child sleeps in as a baby can now be the same bed that they sleep in when they go off to college. While these styles are more expensive, they are definitely a good investment when considered over the duration.
Regardless of the type and style of bedroom furniture that you ultimately decide to purchase it's a good idea to take your time when shopping. Making a hasty decision when purchasing bedroom furniture often leads to regrets later, as well as many poor nights of sleep.
