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. Personal effects like shoes, bags and blankets all can be stored here!

Don’t you think you will like one for your 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?

Get a Bed For Your Bedroom Furniture

We end up spending at least one third of our life on the bed. A good bed is the first step in getting a good night’s sleep and life long pain-free back and healthy life. 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. Also when you get some additional features like storage, and special headboard, the price also goes up.

What are the most important things to keep in mind when you are buying furniture for your bedroom? A good strong and sturdy bedstead, a high-quality supportive and firm mattress and good quality, pretty looking complete set of bed linen and pillows, cushions, bolsters – made of natural fibers preferably – these all items make up your bedroom furniture. Buying a good size bedstead and matching mattress is of extreme importance. Bigger the bed more comfortable will be both you and your spouse. Separate mattresses will be a sensible idea since that will lessen the disturbance caused by partner’s movements. Get mattresses that will have just the right amount of firmness – not hard – for a comfortable night’s sleep.

Once you decide on what will suite your kind of lifestyle, your likes and dislikes, what will fulfill your needs, and what will show off your individual taste and character, you can check out at the local store all the options available for your own bedroom, for the guest room and for the kids rooms as well. You may have to take into account the size of the rooms without fail. Buying a bedstead can take planning and patience. Find out what kind of material will look just right in your home and what will suit the general style and ambience of your home. Discuss with your interior decorator and surf the net for new ideas and innovation in bedsteads and their headboards and footboard details which can be customized.

Here are some single bedsteads for your guest room and kids’ room from Ascot Co. Check what appeals to you most so you can get it for your home.

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.
