Coffee Tables Small And Smart – Welcome Additions to Living Room Furniture

Small and smart-looking coffee tables are essential furniture in the living room. Whether it is for weekend parties, family get-togethers or evening high teas, small coffee tables come very useful for serving beverages and snacks. Even during normal days, they come handy to keep our books, cell phones, mail and brochures. They are perfect to hold a cup of coffee with some snacks.
Though these tables may not be as big as central coffee tables, they are equally if not more essential furniture to be added to the living room. If you are sitting away from main seating area, and you have other seating areas – smaller and cosier- then the small tables come handy for serving snacks and coffee or storing things where we relax or we sit and watch the telly.

Small tables come in all styles and are made of various materials. If your living room furniture is in traditional style, you can search for a small coffee table to match it. If you are having classic opulent and ornate looking furniture, a solid antique looking wooden table with crafted legs in matching shade may look perfect. You have a wide variety available to choose what will suit you. Even if the coffee tables are small in size, they make up in utility value by having storage spaces, drawers, trays, light-fittings etc. Whatever the living room size is, these fit nicely in nooks and corners, are useful for storing and add to the ambience and beauty of the room. Whether you like to keep flowers, display your curios or coffee-table-top books, they add to the beauty and visual appeal of the room.

While it is important to choose a coffee table that matches the décor, material, look and finish of the rest of the living room furniture, they also must match in height and size. The table should be as tall as the chairs it is used with. Also there must be at least 12-15 inches all around the table for easy leg room. Check for smoothly finished edges and well-rounded and smooth corners and surface. It must be sturdy and steady on its legs. Here are some beautifully crafted coffee tables from Smania. Look at the beautiful round and semi circular coffee tables. The beauty in black looks classically beautiful. And the nested trios are a treat to have in any room. All are exquisitely crafted and beautifully finished. Are you not keen to have some small beautiful coffee tables? I am sure they will come handy and add to the beauty of your living room!

Right size, tight firmness, right height, and giving the right amount of support are the important aspects when you are checking on buying the right bed for your bedroom – for you, family as well for guests. Price of a bed need not be the only criteria for purchasing the bed. But generally more expensive beds are always of better quality and more comfortable than cheaper variety and they are more luxurious as well as longer lasting than cheaper beds.

You would love to have nice seats to sit and enjoy the sunshine and cool breeze – enjoying some snacks and long cool drinks. But do you have enough space to relax in your garden? With gardens tools occupying more space and children spending more time outside playing, there sure will be a space crunch in the garden, porch and patio areas. Outdoor storage containers can do double duty as benches and ottomans for nice and comfy seating as well as to store things handy and ready. You can store garden tools, seeds, fertilisers and water hoses. You may keep seasonally used personal effects like raincoats and gumshoes, and children’s playthings and sports goods. Most of the times, they can be used as dumping place for whatever we think as clutter or extra inside the house.

There are sturdy wooden containers – long or square; there are metal ones like of aluminium or iron, and there are durable and long-lasting plastic containers.

Ten Unique Bathroom Design Ideas


From light-up bathtubs to chandeliers in the bathroom, there are a number of innovative ways to transform an everyday space. For inspiration, here are ten unique design ideas to transform your bathroom into a fully functional home spa.

1. Faux windows

For those who live in tiny, city apartments – a window is a rare treat, especially one that reveals a breathtaking backdrop. There is a way to overcome this, which involves creating your very own faux window. Simply place a scenic photo onto glass and hang it where you would expect the window to be.

2. Bold wallpaper

A room with personality is one way to overcome a small space. Instead of keeping the décor clean and minimalistic, choose vibrant wallpaper to add instant character to the room.

3. Under-cabinet lighting

After a hectic day in the office, a long soak in the bath is a welcome treat. Clever lighting in the bathroom plays an important role and installing a variety of dimmable spotlights will allow you to control the intensity of the light. Under-cabinet illumination works to enhance pretty shelving displays as well as a number of darker areas.

4. Light-up bathtubs

Although unconventional, a light-up bathtub is a great asset to the modern-day bathroom. The light from the tub will illuminate the room without the need for a main lighting source.

5. A chandelier

Placing a chandelier above the bathtub will create a retro effect and one that will add instant drama to the room. Complement this feature with a variety of similarly styled accessories.

6. A sunken bath

Creating a spa-like effect in your home is easier than you may think and one way to add a little opulence includes investing in a sunken bath, such as those featured by Betta Living. Instead of climbing over the side of the tub, you can simply sink into it.

7. Tiles

Tiling both the floor and the walls will work to create the appearance of a wetroom, and when colourful shades are added in, it will instantly update a tired space.

8. Storage

If you are short on space, placing pull-out drawers beneath the sink will put the basin to good use whilst allowing you to hide any unwanted clutter.

9. Use a rug

If you have a larger space to work with, laying a rug will help you to create a cosy, welcoming room, whilst introducing a hint of colour.

10. Mirrors

Mirrors can be applied to a smaller space in order to make it appear larger, especially now that there are a range of mirrored furniture options to choose from. Instead of hanging a mirror from the wall, opt to place a reflective cabinet in its place.

Minimalist Bedroom Decor with Platform Beds

What are platform beds? Platform beds are part of Asian or Oriental type of décor that has become very popular today. Platform beds are trendy and look really neat, elegant and sophisticatedly simple. They are best for minimalist bedroom décor as they are not overwhelmingly big, demanding attention and eating up both floor and vertical space.

Traditional beds have been always bigger and taller. They look imposing and more so if they are four posters with stands and net curtains etc. The main focus of the bedroom will be the bed always but the traditional beds are more demanding and attention grabbing than these low slung platform beds which many associate with Japanese idea of arranging bedrooms.

The complete bed furniture set that are called Asian décor has low slung bed, low slung and chic looking nightstands also at the same level as the bed. Platform beds are fuss free in construction with just four legs and a platform of slats that form the basic support for the mattress. Mattresses are placed right on the platform made by the wooden slats without any spring box etc.

Original Asian type platforms did not have either headboards or foot boards. But today most of the beds have headboards and some have extended overhanging board running all around that serves as an extra nightstand. Some platform beds are made with drawers underneath for storing some extra linen and stuff – essential for small minimalist décor homes.

For bedrooms done in minimalist décor, platform beds are the best choice. Modern and contemporary style platform beds come with simple but comfortable headboards that have classic clean cut design lines. The bedroom looks clutter free and elegant.

Here you can see images of beautiful looking platform beds for bedrooms done in contemporary minimalist design from the renowned Italian designers Jesse. The bedroom décor is minimalist and contemporary with low slung platform beds with matching night stands, and dressing chest. With area rug and bed side lamp, the décor looks sophisticated, simple and elegant.

Most of the platform beds have headboards, made of wood but in different finishes. Some are in the natural wood finish; some are finished black with matching nightstands and dressers. Some of the platforms are upholstered beds for extra comfort and with padded and covered headboards. The mattresses are firmly seated on the platform and the effect is minimal and contemporary with highly sophisticated elegance.
