Furniture and other items in bedrooms vary greatly, depending on taste and local tradition. For instance, a master bedroom may include a bed of a specific size (double, king or queen-sized); one or more dressers (or perhaps, a wardrobe armoire); a nightstand; one or more closets; and carpeting. Built-in closets are less common in Europe than in North America; thus there is greater use of freestanding wardrobes or armoires in Europe.
Bedding used in northern Europe (especially in Scandinavia) is significantly different from that used in North America and other parts of Europe. In Japan futons are common.
Some bedrooms also include such items as a make-up desk, television, personal computer, air conditioning and various accessories (such as lamps, telephone and an alarm clock).
Sometimes, a master bedroom is connected to a dedicated bathroom, often called an ensuite.
