Bedroom furniture shopping should be simple. After all, you only need three items: a sturdy bed frame to support your mattress and your body; a little nightstand to hold your overnight essentials; and a stylish dresser with sufficient space for storage. 

If you're working with a smaller bedroom or a tighter budget, I'd encourage you to keep to those three core pieces. If you have more money, time, and space to play with, you could start to shop for statement pieces that fit your needs. You might like a vanity station for morning maintenance or an ornate armoire to keep your closet from overflowing. 

Whatever your space and style needs, I suggest you shop at one of the best places to buy bedroom furniture. That's where you'll find the widest range of pieces, expertly crafted from premium materials to fit all of your bedroom furniture ideas

I've ranked and reviewed eight of my favorite bedroom furniture stores to suit every style of room and size of budget. I've even selected a bed frame, a nightstand, and a dresser from each store to save you searching for the essentials. 

1. Birch Lane

What to buy: Shaker-style furniture to last a lifetime

From the brains behind Wayfair comes Birch Lane, the home furniture brand that stocks elevated everyday essentials at accessible prices. You could buy a platform bed, a dresser, and a nightstand in complementary shades of unvarnished oak for a little less than $2,000. When you shop for bedroom furniture at Birch Lane, you're saving money to spend on the best mattress and the best pillow to help you sleep at night. 

2. Magnolia

What to buy: black and white bedroom furniture

When you shop for bedroom furniture at Magnolia, you'll find an array of classic cuts and neutral colors to complement any bedroom color palette. Beds and headboards get their own special section, while dressers and nightstands are listed alongside benches, stools, and chaises for diverse seating options. If you fancy yourself a bit of a Joanna Gaines, and you'd like to try your hand at furniture design, you should check out their customizable furniture function. You get to choose the colors and fabrics that fit your vision and arrange the furniture to suit your space. 

3. Anthropologie

What to buy: statement pieces

Unlike a lot of the brands on this list, Anthropologie doesn't have a designated bedroom furniture category. Their beds, dressers, and nightstands are listed right alongside their coffee tables and ottomans. While their search filters leave a little to be desired, Anthropologie stocks some of the most beautiful bedroom furniture on the market. You'll find your fair share of solid wood and durable metal, but these classic materials are cut and carved into one-of-a-kind designs to celebrate the subtle variation of natural fibers.

4. Burrow

What to buy: matching sets of sturdy furniture

When you're shopping for bedroom furniture, it's easy to feel overwhelmed by all the options for cut and color. Some of the big-name brands list thousands of beds and hundreds of nightstands and dressers. It would take you hours to sort through each product, and even longer to remember what it is you liked about each piece in the first place. When you shop with Burrow, your options are liberatingly limited. There are one or two styles per piece of furniture: all you need to do is pick a color.

5. Pottery Barn

What to buy: sleeper sofas, daybeds, and vanities

At Pottery Barn, bedroom furniture is all about traditional styles with a modern twist. You'll see a lot of mixed materials and subtle color contrasts to create bespoke beds. Once you've invested in your sleep essentials, it's time to explore the rest of the site. Pottery Barn has an entire sub-category dedicated to the best sleeper sofas and daybeds, so that you can transform any old space into a guest bedroom. There are makeup vanities for morning maintenance, as well as closet solutions to clear up your clutter.

6. Home Depot

What to buy: mid-century modern cuts and colors

If you're prepared to look for it, you can find some seriously good stuff at Home Depot. I recommend the Home Decorators Collection to find classic cuts of solid wood to suit any space, though these pieces would really sparkle in a mid-century modern bedroom. If you've got a few minutes to spare, you could take the Home Depot Style Quiz to define your own aesthetic. I got 'coastal', and Home Depot sent me off to search for specific materials (rattan or wicker), colors (blues and whites), and finishes (distressed wood) to get the look, quick. 

7. One Kings Lane

What to buy: Regency-core designs and plush upholstery

There's a lot to shop at One Kings Lane. I'm talking hundreds of unique designs for nightstands, beds, and dressers. Specialist filters help to narrow the search: you can shop by color, size, and brand to find the furniture that fits your space. This is the place to experiment with traditional bedroom ideas. A canopy bed would make a serious statement in a master bedroom, while plush upholstery should soften up your space.

What to buy: creative storage solutions 

Finally, the home of flat-pack furniture: it couldn't be easier to browse, buy, and assemble IKEA bedroom furniture. IKEA stocks everything from beds, dressers, and drawers to armoires and air purifiers to elevate your space. They even make their own mattresses, though I reckon you'll find better beds in specialist sleep stores. If you're still scouting for ideas, take a look through the IKEA bedroom gallery. You'll find minimalist and maximalist designs to suit small and large spaces, along with links to every single IKEA item featured in each photo. 

Bedroom furniture FAQs

What bedroom furniture is in style?

Right now, I'm loving the look and feel of nook beds. Tucked into cozy corners, a nook bed is a great way to make the most of a small space. I'm also seeing a lot of experimental headboard ideas: I'm talking wood carvings and clashing my patterns. For my money, the hottest headboard features in the Prana Live-Edge Nightstand Bed at Anthropologie. Combining all the best bits of bed frames and nightstands, this solid wood frame celebrates the fluidity of live-edge oak.

When is bedroom furniture on sale?

The best time to buy bedroom furniture is at the end of each season. That's when furniture stores run sales to clear old stock and make way for new pieces.

Final thoughts

Once you've bought the best bedroom furniture, it's time to make the bed. You need the best pillow to support your neck and shoulders and the best bed sheets to keep you cool and comfortable. Next, it's time to learn how to style a bed that's pretty, yet practical. 

You might have made it all the way to the end of this article in window shopping mode: you know you need new bedroom furniture, but you can't justify the expense. If that sounds like you, I recommend you narrow the search to the best places to buy affordable furniture. You can still snag good stuff at the bigger stores, such as Target and Walmart.
