When choosing the best youth bedroom set, it is important to balance function and style. It is typically best to make sure that the set provides adequate or above-average storage. Picking a set that is well-made and durable can also be helpful, especially if you want the furniture to grow with the child. While it can be fun and exciting to choose unique, colorful youth bedroom sets, picking something more neutral and then decorating with fun items can increase your decor options in the future.

The first step to picking a set is to determine how much storage you will need. Some youth bedroom sets may only come with a bed frame and dresser, while others will come with both of these plus additional dressers or nightstands. If you feel that a single dresser will provide suitable storage for the child’s clothing, a smaller youth bedroom set may be best. Despite this, the general rule is that there is no such thing as too much storage. Even if choosing a smaller set, picking one with storage built into the bed can help to maximize the space in the room and provide a place for all of the child’s personal items and toys.


Even the most well-behaved child can be rough on his or her furniture, especially if his or her room doubles as a play area. Choosing well-made furniture while staying in your budget is one of the most important parts of purchasing youth bedroom sets. If higher-end furniture is outside of your price range, it may be best to look at second-hand stores, discount furniture stores or private sellers for a set, as even used items will typically outlive cheaply-made furniture. In the event that the type of youth bedroom set you want is not available in these areas, reinforcing lesser quality furniture with wood glue and additional screws or nails when putting it together can help to make it last much longer.

While your child may want a bedroom dedicated to trucks or princesses, including all of the furniture, this may not be cost-effective in the future. Furniture is typically the most expensive item in any room, and having to repurchase youth bedroom sets later as a child grows out of his or her current obsession can become costly. Purchasing neutral, well-made furniture that can be used with several different room themes is often ideal when choosing youth bedroom sets. Lower cost decor items such as rugs, wall art, and even paint colors, can turn a room into nearly anything the child wants, while remaining easily, and cheaply, changeable in the future.
