Bedroom furniture trends in Geelong

July 5, 2013

Staying up-to-date with the latest fashion in clothes and shoes is something we have become accustomed to, but did you know that trends also come and go in the world of bedroom furniture? For instance, traditional dressing tables that were once a staple in the bedrooms of women and little girls, alike, are now almost a thing of the past.  Dressing tables are being replaced by tallboys or lowboys, which are generally available as part of a new bedroom suite just as bedside drawers are.

Many new bed designs now feature under-bed storage and let’s face it – any extra storage options can only be beneficial, especially if you live in a city apartment or are downsizing to a smaller home. No more trying to hide odds and ends under the bed to no avail… now, all your items can be neatly and discreetly stored in under-bed drawers!

Of course, there are many people who are moving out of the city and suburbs and enjoying larger blocks of land and, in turn, much larger homes. For this reason, there is a definite trend in the purchasing of King sized beds over Queen sized beds, which has led to the range of King size bed styles increasing with this new-found popularity. Timber products are still in vogue, however chocolate and white bedroom furniture is on the rise and is best suited to minimalist homes. White bedroom furniture looks right at home in a beach abode and can be accentuated with hues of pale blue and yellow or bolder colours like red or chocolate brown in the form of bedding, lamps, rugs and paintings.

When shopping for a new mattress, you may be pleasantly surprised to see that pocket spring mattresses are becoming more affordable.  Plus, there is no need for the monthly “turning of the mattress” with single-sided pillow top mattresses more popular than ever.  For more information on the mattresses available, Contact Triftway Furniture Megastore. With so much knowledge on the new and emerging trends in bedroom furniture, you may now be feeling like a ‘furniture fashionista!’
