Coordinating Mismatched Bedroom Furniture: What’s Your Plan?

Modern interior design has often focused on matching furniture items in a room, a methodology that we all probably agree makes sense logically. But in more recent years, the trend has been to include quirky elements that don’t necessarily match but otherwise complement each other in such a way that the overall effect is pleasant to look at. Indeed, matching bedroom furniture is just one of many options available but it isn’t the only way to make a room feel coordinated.

How to Coordinate Furniture

Mismatched bedroom furniture doesn’t mean that the pieces of furniture don’t work well in the room together, but rather it takes a little effort to achieve the effect required. Knowing how to match furniture goes beyond having everything the same colour and style. On the contrary, the skill lies in knowing how different pieces can be combined and tied together aesthetically despite being very different in style.

Coordinating bedroom furniture doesn’t mean everything needs to match. The wardrobe could potentially be very modern, tall and made of a dark wood. This could be in stark contrast to the bed, which is made of a lighter wood and have a very traditional design. A potential design solution could be to introduce a common colour such as a red that could be the colour of the handles on the wardrobe and the feet of the bed.

Are Matching Bedroom Sets Outdated?

The one thing that is becoming more and more popular is bespoke bedroom sets. This suggests that people are more concerned about finding a solution that is just right for them rather than a bedroom set that has to fit into whatever space there is, leaving wasted space and not being exactly what they want.

This doesn’t suggest that they’re outdated, but rather have a different place in the market. When market conditions change, so does consumer demand and when people are more likely to improve their own property and adapt their space to what they need, it’s naturally going to follow that a bespoke option will be preferable.

How to Make Mismatched Wood Furniture Work

Many people ask if you can mix dark and light wood furniture, and the short answer is ‘yes’. This is because there are other elements of design that allow the two different colours to complement each other. One such design element is shape. Instead of matching bedroom furniture that is the same colour, the pieces could have a distinctive shape. Does bedroom furniture have to match or be the same colour? No. Does it have to complement each other? Yes.

A mismatched bedroom set opens up a greater range of creativity as each piece isn’t restricted in its design.

Mismatched Bedside Tables

Many bedrooms have matching bedside tables, but this may not always be the best practical solution. One person may require more storage for books or a tablet and the other may prefer something more decorative. Having mismatched bedside tables is entirely possible when some thought is put into the way the bedside tables could be made to complement each other. If both tables have completely different shapes, perhaps their feature in common could be colour or even the same accessory such as the handle. Something that marries to two together means the mismatch doesn’t lead to a lack of coordination that just doesn’t look right in the room. This perhaps serves as some relief to couples who ask themselves if they can mix and match nightstands without both being a little disappointed with how the whole room looks.

Mismatching Bedroom Furniture Intentionally

Given that bedroom furniture options are greater now than they have ever been, it’s not unlikely that people will choose to create interesting effects through intentionally mismatching furniture.

When you have full control with bespoke bedroom furniture, anything is possible.

5 Key Benefits of Fitted Wardrobes

Fitted wardrobes are becoming increasingly popular in many bedrooms throughout London. The main appeal of fitted wardrobes is that they save valuable space and optimise the existing space you have. The problem with freestanding wardrobes is that they have to be placed against a wall or in a corner which usually leaves gaps either side or above your wardrobe. No matter how small the gaps may be, you will be wasting precious space and your bedroom may appear smaller due to the bulkiness of a freestanding wardrobe. Fitted wardrobes will not only give you more room to store your belongings but they also make your bedroom appear more spacious and organised.

Here at Metro Wardrobes London, we are proud to provide our customers with beautiful high-quality fitted wardrobes. With a wide choice of different styles, sizes, colours and storage options, you can have the perfect fitted wardrobe which suits all of your individual needs.

Benefits of Fitted Wardrobes:

Additional Space

One of the main reasons you should invest in a fitted wardrobe is the additional space. Your fitted wardrobe can be filled from corner to ceiling so that no space is wasted. This also gives you extra storage as you can fill the entire height of your room with your belongings. No matter what the size or shape, a fitted wardrobe can be modified to fit into right spaces and awkward corners which can be highly practical and efficient.

A Good Investment

A fitted wardrobe is a good investment for your home. This is because it counts as additional storage and nowadays storage is increasingly sought after. If you decide to sell your home, then a fitted wardrobe can be very appealing to buyers and will attract more interest. It will also save buyers from the stress of having to move home with a heavy freestanding wardrobe. If you don’t plan on selling, then a fitted wardrobe is a good long-term storage solution which will serve you well for many years.

Strength and Durability

Undoubtedly, fitted wardrobes are a lot stronger, sturdier and durable compared to a freestanding wardrobe. If you have children or pets in your home, there is always a risk that a freestanding wardrobe could topple onto them if they try to climb on it or move it around. This will simply not happen with a fitted wardrobe as it is fully secure. There is also less risk of injury from doors and hinges becoming loose as many fitted wardrobes are made from high-quality materials and fittings. The durability of a fitted wardrobe will ensure that your wardrobe is not only safer but also built to last a lifetime.
