The bed is obviously important (more ways on how to make it sing coming up), as are nightstands and dressers. Consider what types of furniture you want in your room (and what can fit). For example, do you prefer an open nightstand or one packed with drawers? Is space limited and will your dresser need to double as a nightstand? What else can you fit into your space? A roomy armchair or chaise? Or just a slim chair?
