Once relegated to porches and yards, wicker furniture is available today in designs suitable for any room in the home, including the bedroom. Complete sets of wicker bedroom furniture are available, with headboards, dressers, nightstands, and armoires constructed completely of wicker. If a person doesn’t want to furnish the bedroom entirely in rattan, individual wicker pieces can be used to accent other bedroom decor.

The well-designed bedroom provides plenty of places to store clothing and accessories, so a variety of wicker bedroom furniture has been designed with storage in mind. A wicker armoire with cupboards and shelves provides lots of storage, and any clutter can be hidden behind its doors for quick cleanup. Wicker hampers make excellent receptacles for dirty laundry since wicker can “breathe.” A wicker chest placed at the foot of the bed is perfect for storing blankets, sheets, and towels, while toiletries can be stored in the wicker medicine chest in the master bathroom.

Nightstands that customarily flank the bed can be replaced with a stylish wicker table or two. There are many sizes of wicker tables to choose from to suit different lifestyles. A small table can hold a lamp and a book, while a larger one can be used for a phone, laptop, paperwork, and any other materials that might need attention before turning in.

The fashionable woman needs a place to comfortably do hair and makeup, and a vanity with mirror is a practical and attractive piece of wicker bedroom furniture. Its surface and drawers provide room to store makeup and toiletries. A cushioned wicker seat by the vanity gives the woman a place to rest comfortably while getting ready for work or a night out.

Most wicker bedroom furniture is either stained a natural rattan hue or painted white, but wicker is versatile and can be painted any color to complement any décor. Wicker is lightweight so it is easy to move wicker bedroom furniture around. It is also inexpensive. When used inside, wicker is durable and easy to clean by wiping down with a damp cloth periodically to remove dust and grime.

Wicker bedroom furniture that is painted white traditionally gives the room a cozy, country look, but there are contemporary designs that can give the bedroom a more updated style. Rattan can also be used to give the room a bold look. For example, hanging a large wall mirror framed in white wicker against a wall painted a dark color will provide an attractive and dramatic accent in any bedroom.

@raynbow- I think that you should go with the same white wicker theme that you used on your porch when you furnish your bedroom. In my opinion, white wicker has a crisp, fresh look and compliments a beach theme perfectly. White wicker bedroom sets are also easy to find, because it is a popular color.

@raynbow- I think that you should choose wicker furniture that has a natural finish. Not only will it go with any home interior, but the natural color will make your room feel contemporary and cozy. This finish will also go very nicely with beach paintings and colors that are typically used in beach-like decor, such as peach and turquoise.

When choosing a wicker headboard, one that has a very open, lacy look will go beautifully with the kind of decor you want to achieve. This will add an artistic feel to your bedroom, and will look great with your ocean theme.

I would like to decorate my bedroom in wicker, but I'm not sure how to decorate with it indoors. I have decorated an enclosed porch with it before, and had a white table, couch, and chairs.

I would like to create a natural, beach-like feel in my bedroom with the wicker bedroom furniture I choose, so I'm looking for some tips for the best way to accomplish this goal.
