There are only a few pieces of furniture that are standard in a bedroom. In this post I’ll be focusing on ideas for 5 vintage bedroom furniture pieces, 1) the bed, 2) the dresser, 3) a side table, 4) a bedside bench, and 5) the closets.
1. The Different Vintage Bed Styles
For me, the go to choice here would be a farmhouse style one, just like in picture (1) – and you can get one here. Some other ideas include going with a four post bed, or a wrought iron bed. Look for French inspired designs, like the curved headboard in the bedroom in picture (2).
Don’t forget that bedsheets can really style a bedroom since they take up a lot of visual space. Choices here include white, offwhite, lace (3), quilts, and light pastel colored sheets.
2. Choosing a Vintage Dresser
In the mood board you can see the:
- Stylized wooden dresser in picture (4)
- The mint painted dresser (5) that will nicely add a pop of color in any bedroom. And then the more traditional French style dresser – with decorative trim, and curvy legs with the claw feet (6)
3. A Vintage Style Side Table
Here are some ideas on the kind of side table to get:
- A trunk
- A small round table with tapered legs
- Or a small metal one
- Or make your own vintage inspired side table with hairpin legs (7).
4. Add Some Storage and Seating
A trunk at the foot of your bed can be used for storage and as a seat. This can be a solid wooden trunk, a metal one, or a wicker hamper.
And if you have space for a freestanding closet, then get one that looks like the one in picture (8). If you have built in closet, then the next idea is for you.
5. Give Your Closet a Vintage Makeover
The look of your closet doors can really set the style and feel of your bedroom. Why not check out my post here (DIY Challenge: Give Your Closet Doors a Makeover) to see more closet makeovers like the one in picture (9)
