Bedroom furniture - what is essential? - Page 2

post #16 of 35
in my house i have (not kitchen appliances): tv, table, love seat, mattress+bed, end table, bookcase. i prefer my house to look modern and minimalistic than have all this stuff in my house that i'm probably never going to use.

It's possible to live without nightstands (or something that serves that function), but I'm not sure why you'd want to.

I rock a platform bed similar to this with night table "extensions". All you need is some lamps, maybe an iPod radio/clock and something to hold keys, wallet, watch, etc.

Other than that all you need is a nice credenza if you have a closet or a low dresser instead.

I hate that the mattress is not flush with the bedframe there. Makes the bed hard to sit on. More importantly it limits sexual positions.

+1 I used to have a similar bed about 20 years ago (low with that type of frame sticking out), but after staying in a hotel, I realized how limiting modern style beds can be for sex. Since then, I make sure the bed height is just right for various standing sex positions, and that the frame is aligned with the mattress

The frame could be sanded down...

I've haven't had a problem with it, but I could definitely see why if a platform bed like that is in tight quarters.

you need nightstands, two each. Where else are you gonna keep your pistols and do lines of blow off of when you have multiple girls over?

I am fond of my love seat. Makes a great place to relax.

+1, there are much better minimalistic frame styles.

You need a nightstand!

In my bedroom, I have a small closet, so I have to keep most of the storage in the bedroom itself. I have

-Queen bed frame with a Stearns and Foster mattress which is too soft, but it's comfortable.
-Two Side tables for reading lamps, ipod's, charging stations, books.
-Two dressers, one tall and one shorter and longer with a dressing mirror.
-Wardrobe
-Makeup desk...
-Plus a little sitting area with two chairs, a coffee table that I use for reading.

This is something I always liked to sell in my store:


It just is really ugly and has no Surround Sound.

Yeah and no bars or anything to tie the rope to.
