asymmetrical-headboard-and-low-round-platform

Getting compact looking beds can actually make your bedroom look bigger. Today small homes and apartments are a reality and many of us need scaled down versions of old times’ four-poster beds or master beds that were really huge. Platform beds can be an ideal choice for small homes and there are quite a lot of choices available for you to pick and choose what may suit your home and style.

Bedroom décor overall can focus around the bed you have chosen. With the low-slung platform beds, you save a lot on the vertical space. The bed lies low to the ground and nightstands are also compact matching with the bed. This results in the furniture not dominating the room but matching and staying compatible to the overall décor.

Platform beds are ideal for loft homes or if you happen to have a small bedroom with sloping ceiling since it takes very less of vertical space. Today some platform beds do have headboards but not too high or too elaborate like for normal beds. Sideboards are almost always separate, but the beds have an extended wooden board-lip that extend all around serving as additional night stand

Box springs are not part of these platform beds. They have slats – placed closely so as to support the mattress directly. This is more comfortable for people with spinal problem who want a flat and a firm kind of bed – and this fits the bill nicely. Platform beds are no fuss beds comprising a bed, with a slatted bed support frame and directly your favorite mattress on it.

There is also storage area under the bed with a low pull out drawer under the bed that can store extra blankets, thin cushions and sheets etc easily. Low rectangular platform beds and round platform beds are both popular. Some round beds have a swing action. Some platforms do not have legs but rest on a square box-like structure which is used for storage.

Futons are another kind of low bed – actually foldable bed that is placed directly on the floor. Though originally only wooden platform beds were available, today there are beds from glass, from fiberglass, from polycarbonate, from bamboo, from cane and compressed wood also. Here are some pretty platform beds from Italy Design. Some are round in shape and others rectangular. How do you like them for your home?

Bed-End-Benches – An Attractive Addition to Your Bedroom

How nice it will be to have some extra sitting space in your bedroom? When bedrooms are big, you can afford to have a beautiful sofa or a sectional in the corner for you to sit and read or sit and watch TV. In olden days when bedrooms were huge with beautiful four-poster bends and extra room, people used to have even a daybed so that they have a nice place to relax.

Today in our small houses or studio apartments, space is at a premium and all furniture needs to do double duty. You can consider a bed-end bench for giving extra seating space as well underneath storage space to keep an extra blanket or bed linen for you. If you upholster it or cover it in a matching shade as your bed, it can add to the ambience of your home.

What should you consider when you are getting a bed-end-bench for your bedroom. Actually this can be an ottoman – a longish one at the height of the bed or it can be a long stool, a settee – anything that blends well with your bedstead and the décor of your bedroom. Only you should check the dimensions of the bench to be in scale with the room.

What height the bench should be – when upholstered it should be as level as the bed level at the foot end of the bedstead. Bed-end-benches for beds without footboard can look like they are extension of the bed itself. If you keep the length of the bench just inside of that of the bed and furnish it matching, it will look very elegant.

Bed-end-benches can have storage options also underneath them for your convenience but there are a lot of benches come without storage option as well. With etching, carving or scroll details and other ornamentation, a bed-end-bench can add allure to your bedroom. With an exceptionally beautiful bed-end-bench can become the focus of your bedroom.

Here are some beautiful bed-end-bench options from Sweetpea and Willow. Look at the pretty bench in gold and green which looks so sophisticated. Also the one with ends curved so elegantly and the other one in pink with quilted upholstery will really make your bedroom so beautiful. How would you like the other white bed-end -bench? All are of high-quality workmanship!

Surely you will love to have one of these at your home?

Warm coloured veneers like pine also look great in bedrooms especially with white wall décor and white flooring. It gives a spacious look. Even when the room dimensions are small, this combination can make the room expand and look spacious and nice.

Storage Beds – A Boon to Small Houses And Studio Apartments

Storage beds can solve the ever-present problem of storage in small houses and studio apartments. Imagine the list of items you require on a daily basis and the space requirement to store all of them? A wardrobe may take care of your clothing and some part of jewelry etc. But where can you keep the so many other personal items and utility items we need on a daily basis?

What are the items that need storage space in your bedroom other than your clothes? First think of the number of shoes and slippers we use on a daily basis. Where we can keep them? And the brushes, polishes and rags, wipes and nourishing creams we need for the leather footwear – how nice to have a separate drawer under the bed to hold all of the footwear?

And there are other items like extra blankets, pillows and sheets which take up a lot of space. Think of bed that can accommodate all of them? And the other items that we commonly use like iron box, iron table, pumps for the airbeds, emergency lights, torches , chargers for portable music system and similar things which we need but have no place to keep!

If you have just a tiny space for an extra bed say – under the loft – the best way to maximize the space available is to find the storage beds with a number of drawers. We can keep all the extras in these drawers, put a nice looking skirt on the outside and can forget that we have so many under the bed. The best is that the bed-skirt nicely keeps everything tidy and neat.

There is hutch-like space available even behind the headboard – where you can make the electrical connections housed for the light that will light up at the headboards and even have speakers set up for your stereos if you are an avid music fan. Also electric plug sockets can be convenient for charging your cell phone or lap top when you are working from bed.

Here are some uniquely designed storage beds from Ultimate Bed. These are beds specially made for houses and flats where there is a space shortage. There are a number of drawers and shelves built into it so that you can accommodate a lot of stuff into it and enjoy a clutter free home.

Sensuous And Shimmering Silk Curtains for Stunning Bedrooms

A house is made into a home with love and affection. From an empty shell with four walls, a warm welcoming gorgeous home is created with planning and patience. Every room of the house demands the same attention and interest to become personalized and special. Along with furniture, appliances, accessories, soft furnishings like curtains and shades also are important aspects of interior décor. Bedroom is possibly the most personal space in your home where you spend almost one third of your entire life. Here you find rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. High-quality bed-frame, most comfortable mattress, soft and striking bed linen and other furniture alone do not create a smart, stylish and sophisticated look or ambiance to your bedroom. They form only part of the story!

Spectacular and sensuous curtains and drapes are needed to complete your bedroom décor for fantastic and satisfying results. But you cannot indiscriminately buy curtains for your bedroom. You must take the room size into consideration, position of window s/doors, bedroom furniture layout and wall colour and upholstery of bedroom furniture. Bedroom is a place where you need privacy along with pretty looks. Especially if your bedroom has large glass windows and can be viewed from outside, you need to use shades for privacy. Another option can be café curtains for the bottom half of your windows. You can use sheers also and create a layered effect with heavy drapes which can contribute to the ‘wow’ factor.

What are the fabrics you can choose for your bedroom curtains? You have a choice of naturals and synthetics. When you are aiming for pretty looks and beautiful effects, silks, velvet, chiffon and chenille may be the option. Silk curtains can create a magic of stunning colours, cool textures and beautiful patterns that add warmth and create ambiance as nothing else. Silk is soft, shimmering, and supple and looks super cool on bedroom windows. You can have pale light colours for a cool casual look, or you can indulge in deep shades of jewel tones that look dramatic and grand. Maybe you like the textured weaves that look more classy and delicate? How about the exquisite jacquard that can add immensely to the style quotient?

Are you worried that genuine silk may be too delicate and is high on maintenance expecting hand-wash or dry cleaning every time? Then you can go for faux silks that look every bit as good as the original genuine silk! Keen to know all about gorgeous silk curtains for your bedroom décor?
