Dressers though overlooked when it comes to designing the bedroom not only serve to add aesthetic appeal to the overall look, but also provide extra space for storage of items such as clothes, lingerie, and other similar fabric.

There are various designs to choose from depending on the number of drawers the dresser has.

Bedside Furniture

Bedside tables have reinvented themselves since the days where they were used to house chamber pots, to the present day where they are a useful bedroom accessory.

Regardless of the design, they all provide the same functions; providing extra storage for items such as alarm clocks or bedside lamps that you may wish to keep close to the bed.

Bedside chests, bedside cabinets, and night stands all fall under this category.

Wall and Decorative Mirrors

Apart from the everyday use of personal grooming, a mirror's aesthetic value cannot be overlooked as it beautifully accentuates the whole room and other bedroom furniture.

Mirrors serve to draw the attention; acting as a focal point in the bedroom and making it look spacious. They also reflect light and make a room look bright.

Mirrors are available in various finishes, styles, and sizes to match your bedroom decor and can be in either illuminated, decorative, standing or antique designs.
