What’s in vogue for bedrooms is constantly changing. From bedroom, office combos, to loft beds, platform beds… and remember waterbeds? The world of home décor is constantly shifting, but what always remains in style is great storage. Your storage solutions need to be functional while adding to the appeal of the space – it should never detract from the look or feeling of the space. It can be a challenge to strike this balance, but with a little patience you can find great, beautiful storage pieces.

Whether you are lucky enough to have a beautiful walk-in closet, his and hers closets, or had to add storage to your bedroom with an armoire or dresser, storage solutions are a great opportunity to add some additional flare to your bedroom.

Adding storage space

Many older homes were built with very small closets or no closets at all in bedrooms. In these cases, you have to get by with using a dresser or armoire (or a combination of both). There are some really beautiful pieces out there to choose from, from rich wood pieces to ultra-modern mirrored pieces, there is something for everyone. There is a big décor movement toward rustic, French country and DIY looks. If you are interested in any of these looks, wood is your best-friend, and what better way to get it than by buying real wood, rustic dressers or armoires.

Rustic DresserRustic elements

There are many versions of ‘rustic’ to choose from, which is nice. A lot of people think rustic means knotty pine, but this isn’t always the case. You can achieve a rustic design scheme by adding real wood pieces into your home. In your bedroom, a nice unfinished dresser or bare-looking wood armoire is a great way to bring rustic to the bedroom.

You do have another option though. Some people find the unfinished wood, or finished knotty pine furniture to be a little too kitschy. If you are among those people, reclaimed wood furniture is another way to go. Reclaimed wood furniture is new furniture built out of old wood. Typically, this wood comes from old buildings that have been dismantled, like barns and fences.

The bedroom

A great rustic dresser is the perfect way to keep your wardrobe organized in a room that doesn’t come with built-in storage options. The right rustic dresser can also be a great focal point for your bedroom and double as a display or even a television stand. Within the world of dressers, you have many style options. You can find long, low ones with vanity mirrors, or narrow tall ones – even short and fat ones – which means the perfect dresser for your space does exist.
