Bedroom Furniture Set Buying Guide: Are They Worth It?
Furnishing your new bedroom? Or perhaps you're revamping your setup? When buying bedroom furniture, one consideration is whether to purchase individual pieces or a set of matching items. But what does the bedroom furniture set include? A bed and storage? Does it include accents? Is it worth buying, or is it better to match separate pieces yourself? Asking questions and assessing your needs first before going to a furniture outlet or online shop makes the process more fulfilling.
This complete buying guide will help you understand the inclusions, benefits, and downsides of bedroom furniture sets. Prepare your notes before we start.
What’s Included in a Bedroom Furniture Set
Fan of the matchy-matchy symmetrical design? If you want a seamless and well-coordinated room without a fuss, getting a bedroom set is a wise decision. But what's in a bedroom set?
There are various types of bedroom sets that include different furniture pieces. When buying a set, it's vital to assess how many pieces you'd like to have in your room.
Two-Piece Bedroom Set
The most basic bedroom combination, a two-piece bedroom set, includes a bed frame and a bedside table. This is perfect for furnishing small rooms or guest rooms.
Three-Piece Bedroom Set
Need more storage? Unlike a two-piece bedroom set, a three-piece set takes a bit more space because of the presence of a wardrobe or a dresser in addition to the bed frame and nightstand. If you are to furnish a primary bedroom, a three-piece set can effortlessly provide you with the basics.
Four-Piece Bedroom Set
A four-piece bedroom set includes a bed frame, wardrobe, bedside table, and dressing table or an accent mirror. This is a good choice if you want to add more personality to your space. Depending on your preference, the bed frame can be wooden, metal, or a divan.
Five-Piece Bedroom Set
If you're looking for a bit more variety or have a more spacious bedroom, opt for a six-piece bedroom set. This includes a bed, bedside table, wardrobe, dressing table, and a chest of drawers or a TV console.
Six-Piece Bedroom Set
Need more variety? A six-piece bedroom set comes with a bed frame, a bedside table or two, a wardrobe, a dressing table, and a cabinet. This set is ideal for shared spaces where you need a nightstand on each side of the bed.
Storage Furniture Set
Suppose you already have your main bed frame and are looking for matching furniture pieces to complete your bedroom. A storage furniture set is an ideal choice. This can be a combination of a wardrobe, chest of drawers, or nightstand.
Tip: When shopping for a bedroom set, it’s important to check whether the set includes a mattress or not, what kind of bed comes with it, and what materials are used. Always consult a salesperson or customer service professional to clear up every question before purchasing. Since buying a bedroom set is a huge investment, you have to properly select your choices.

Should You Buy a Bedroom Set?
Not everything is for everyone. A furniture set has its pros and cons. Choosing to buy all pieces together or choose your furniture piece by piece depends on your needs and preferences. Answer these questions to know if a bedroom set is for you.
What is the Purpose of the Bedroom?
Is the room your primary bedroom? A child's room or a guest's room? While it is easier to skimp on style when furnishing a guest room, furnishing your primary bedroom and the room shared by your young ones requires more thought. Since you'll be going home to your bedroom every day, it's important to consider your lifestyle, space requirements, theme, and style preference when furnishing your space. If you're into the classic uniform and matching style, a bedroom set is undoubtedly for you. If you feel adventurous enough for styling, buy separate pieces one by one.
Is Your Bedroom Shared?
When choosing furniture for your shared room, it's important to take into account both your furniture and design choices. Do you need two bedside tables? Do you need an additional chest of drawers? Discussing these simple things will significantly affect your comfort in the long run.
What is Your Theme?
Are you in for a sophisticated traditional room or a modern one? Perhaps you want to go eclectic. If you're into the latter, buying a bedroom set might oppose your purpose. If centred on a traditional theme, you're guaranteed to benefit from a seamless bedroom set. For a contemporary setting, you have to be ready to change styles based on what's trending.
What's the Size of Your Room?
Bedroom sets are cohesively designed to create a balanced space. However, since these come in a set, you will have a limited choice in terms of their size. When buying bedroom furniture sets in Singapore, make sure to note the measurements of your flat, the door clearance, the passageways, and, of course, your room. Remember, items may look good in images or showrooms but may not actually fit your allotted space. Returning a bedroom set to the furniture shop due to space constraints may be more challenging than replacing a single free-standing unit, so ensure you get it right by carefully checking your area.
How Much are You Willing to Spend?
Buying a bedroom set means buying all those furniture pieces at once. This is a good move if you're furnishing a new home with a good budget all at once. If you're on a tighter budget, we suggest buying your furniture piece by piece instead of spending a lot at once. Start with the most essential, your bed and mattress, then continue with your storage. The accents can come later. You can also look for installment or pay-later plans with 0% interest if you're into purchasing sets. Always take time to look for choices that are good in quality and attainable with what you can afford. Remember, buying furniture must not be too heavy or stressful.
Bedroom sets include all your bedroom essentials, so there’s no need to worry about splurging on something that is not needed. To choose the right pieces that will set the whole mood of your bedroom, feel free to explore, research, and ask. Also, don’t hesitate to add your personal touches with accents, colours, and decor. Whether you choose a set or buy furniture pieces one at a time, you will need to express your creativity.
