How to Accessorize & Decorate Around Your Bedroom Furniture Sets
Learn how to decorate the bedroom with these tips.
When it comes to bedroom design in Texas, the larger furniture like the bed and dresser often take center stage. With a matching bedroom furniture set, you can stay true to a style and use other furniture and accessories to decorate the room and make it feel all your own. Whether you prefer a rustic look or a more industrial one, there is a bedroom set out there that can match your preferred style and budget! Learn more about bedroom furniture sets and how to decorate and accessorize around them in this guide.
Reasons to Consider Bedroom Furniture Sets
A bedroom furniture set often includes anywhere from 5 to 8 individual furniture pieces, including the bed itself, dresser, nightstands, and possibly additional dressers, vanity, or drawers. Purchasing bedroom furniture sets is a great way to save time and money during the shopping process. Instead of searching for each individual item, you can instead find a style that you like that will carry over from the bedframe, to the dresser, to the bedside table.
Bedroom sets are often also more cost-effective than buying each item individually. For example, a high-quality 6 piece King bedroom set for $2,500 includes the king bed, dresser, mirror, and nightstand. A King bed itself might be close to $1,000, two nightstands $700, a dresser $800, and a mirror $300 - it all adds up quickly, especially if you are looking for high-quality furniture that will match or fit the space together. At Mega Furniture TX, our bedroom furniture sets also often feature some of the best discounts and promotions on the site, allowing you to save more when you get more!
Lastly, bedroom sets are easy to coordinate and offer a cohesive look, making the room feel more put together and polished. When you buy bedroom furniture individually, on the other hand, you will constantly have to try to match up colors, wood textures, and styles that may or may not be suited for each other.
When you shop our website, you’ll find bedroom sets available in a variety of styles and price ranges. Our most popular selections are designed for both Queen and King bed configurations. Many other items on our website that are sold separately also have matching furniture options that can be purchased if you are looking for that cohesive, matching look.

How to Decorate the Bedroom
Now that you have selected your primary bedroom furniture, you can begin to decorate and accessorize the room based on the overall style you are going for. Maybe you want the space to feel like a glam, luxurious oasis. Or maybe a rustic and warm cottage style is more your vibe. Whatever your desires, the furniture, colors, lighting, and artwork you choose can bring that vision to life and make the space all your own.
1. Cut the clutter
The first thing you’ll want to do before anything else is ensure there is adequate amounts of floor space and “breathing room”. Ideally, you want to be able to move around comfortably without feeling cramped or overwhelmed. Proper measurements of the room beforehand can help ensure that the furniture you select doesn’t feel too big or bulky for the space.
For smaller rooms, or larger rooms that need more storage space, opt for armoires or dressers that utilize vertical rather than horizontal space, nightstands with drawers, and other small furniture that include built-in storage functionality. This will save you floor space, while ensuring you still have enough room to tuck away clothing, jewelry, and other valuables.
2. Try mixing and matching other materials

Since your furniture set matches, you’ll want to consider mixing and matching in other ways. Play with colors, patterns, and materials with throw blankets, pillows, rugs, artwork, and other accessory items that can add personality and contrast to the matching furniture.
One easy way to mix and match is to utilize repetition appropriately. Repeating similar patterns helps make the space feel more polished, even if everything isn’t 100% matching. For example, a bedding set and rug can tie the space together through the use of similar patterns, colors, or textures.
3. Add additional furniture
You have all the main furniture items taken care of, but what about other ways you can utilize the space? The key here is to choose furniture that offers functionality while adding to the atmosphere and style of the room. Avoid buying furniture you won’t actually be using, and instead focus on pieces that speak to your interests and needs.
For example, a nice bench at the foot of the bed may offer useful seating. If you enjoy literature or want a space for relaxing, a lovely reading nook with a separate table and chair can offer a cozy space for journaling or working. A vanity or extra mirror over the dresser can also be a functional but aesthetic feature for the bedroom.
4. Opt for proper lighting

When searching for bedroom lighting, think soft and gentle. You want enough light to move around at night, but not so much that it can be hard to sleep or relax. While your overhead light is the most commonly used, aim for other lighting sources that can add additional functionality and charm to the space. A table lamp or two within easy reach of the bed will ensure you don’t have to get out of bed to turn the lights on or off. Plus, they make great reading lights and decorations!
5. Lay down a rug
We love rugs! A bedroom rug is an easy way to bring the design of the space together while introducing new textures or patterns. In the bedroom, rugs are typically placed under or just in front of the bed. If you have nightstands on either side, you can decide whether you want the rug to continue underneath them (all the way to the headboard) or stop just before the nightstands’ front legs. For a King size bed, your rug should be at least 9x12, whereas a Queen size bed can get away with 9-10 feet width.
Placement may also work in front of a larger horizontally-oriented dresser or vanity. Just make sure you measure properly to ensure it fits the space just right without taking over the entirety of the floor space.
6. Choose curtains over blinds
For the bedroom, we would recommend installing curtains over blinds (or using both!) because they offer more aesthetic options for the space. Curtains have also been shown to be a bit better at sound absorption, which is essential for ensuring you get a good night’s sleep.
Curtains can make a statement or emphasize and match the existing room style. Patterned, solid, bold, or beaded - there are so many options out there that you should be able to find one that is perfect for the style and atmosphere you are going for. Sheer or blackout curtains can also add additional function at preventing sunlight from coming into the room too early on the weekend mornings.
7. Hang artwork

When it comes to artwork, choose pieces that reflect your interests and complement the general color or pattern scheme of the space. Hanging a statement piece right over the bed can tie everything together and create a kind of “accent wall” without the need to paint or wallpaper.
Aside from wall art, you can also consider sculptures, unique clocks, figurines, family pictures, and trays and bowls. Walking around a few furniture stores and browsing Pinterest or Etsy are great ways to get inspiration!
8. Make room for greenery
The addition of plants allows you to bring a natural element into the room. Plus, they are a great way to fill out empty space in the room where nothing else quite fits or looks right. Plants can be placed on hanging shelves, nightstands, or on the floor in a corner. Succulents, ferns, and cactuses are some of the most popular houseplants that are relatively easy to care for. If you don’t have the green thumb, you can also opt for faux plants!
Plant wall panels are also increasingly becoming popular. These can be installed for both living or faux plants and certainly make a statement when displayed in small or large areas of a wall.
