Maintenance Streamlined with Storage Accessories & Organizers

wonderful-white-dresser-with-drawers

From foyer to kitchen, storage is an important aspect of home furniture. Small apartments or big houses, organizers and storage cabinets play a vital role in keeping houses look spic and span. Consumerism is on the rise and people sometimes compulsively accumulate things and without extra storage space, keeping things organized is not possible.

Formerly there used to be bigger and more spacious houses with huge sized attics, barns and cellars. We had the luxury of stashing everything – right from an out-of-fashion dress to not-in-use furniture in the cellars or attics. Winter vegetables, fruits, cheese, and liquor – all used to be stored safely in the cellar without feeling any problem or space squeeze.

But today things have changed and we do not have cellars or attics to store. In fact, our homes are minuscule in size, we have difficulty in finding enough storage space for even monthly grocery stocking – leave alone yearly stocking like they were doing formerly. Even the huge garage where we used to stash things is a thing of past and we have just a basement parking spot for one car!

The need for extra storage furniture is a must for us to organize all our things. Extra storage space will prevent stuff getting strewn everywhere, and help us assign places for each and everything so we will not have a hard time finding whatever we want quickly. We can easily keep the house tidy and neat when each and everything has its own place.

Developing habits of tidiness and orderliness can be very helpful in good housekeeping. A weekly cleaning out of shelves and sorting the stuff helps greatly in weeding out the unwanted and useless stuff and keeping the essentials. Many postpone clearing out stuff periodically and end up feeling frustrated to find old stuff still hogging space when they want space for new purchases.

Here is some storage furniture from Bedroom Furniture. These organizers and storage accessories are very helpful to streamline your maintenance tasks. You can stash a lot into the six wicker baskets like bed linen, towels and other sundry items. The beautifully upholstered ottoman can look neat in the living room at the same time stashing your extra cushions, throws or rugs.

No doubt you are also having storage crunch often. Periodic spring cleaning and having enough storage accessories and organizers will help greatly in making your home well-maintained and beautiful!

Gorgeous Sofas – The Focal Point of Your Drawing Room And Living Room Furniture

Sofa is one of the most important furniture investments you will make. A sofa will be the focal point of the room – be it the drawing room where you may entertain guests formally or the living room where you and your family will practically be living in it. Whether you are looking for sofas for your drawing room or for your living room, you need to pay attention to a few basic criteria. After all, a sofa may stay with you for some years. The most important decision will be about the look you will go in for. What do you like best? Is it casual, contemporary, traditional or modern look? Does your home conform to any special style/look/decor? How have you furnished the rest of the house? All these things influence your decision. Talk to your interior decorator, go online and browse for information, go down to the furniture stores/showrooms and check out!

Once deciding about the look, you should decide about the size of the sofa. The room size and layout will decide this for you. A smaller size room or an apartment may restrict your choices. However beautiful a sofa is, it ought not to be too large for the room. Take actual measurements and discuss with the sales person or the decorator. What looks great in a store may not suit your individual room/house. When you have decided on look and size of the sofa, check out the depth and height of the seat and style. How would you like it, soft or straight back and tight? How would you prefer the fills – firm or soft? Can you lounge comfortably or snooze on it without a problem? Comfort level is such a personal thing! Try it out in the local furniture store personally and then decide. No impulsive purchases!

Now you must decide on the upholstery – fabric, vinyl or leather? A drawing room sofa ought to have rich-looking, stylish and smart-looking upholstery that goes with the decor of the room and other furniture. A living-room sofa, in a house with children and pets, needs something that can be cleaned mighty quickly. No delicate fabric or color though slip covers can help. Again what looks good may not feel good, so check thoroughly. Having decided on all the criteria, go for top quality. Better the quality, longer they will last. Here are some sofas from Minotti.com. Look at the classic combinations. They look so elegant and beautiful. Good sofas can add so much to the ambiance and beauty of the room. Choose wisely and enjoy great comfort!

driftwood-christmas-tree-illuminated

Today the green movement is gathering momentum and doing our bit for the preserving and promoting the green trend is most important. The aim is to reduce, reuse & recycle – whatever natural treasures we have – like woods, water without wasting as well contain the craze people have to dump old things and get more and more new non-sustainable products. Driftwood can be called the ultimate green product. Felled by no human hands, treated with no harmful chemicals, the driftwood is the embodiment of green sustainable material. Captivating the imagination of multitude of people cutting across language, nationality, creed or age, driftwood is a favorite medium to create unique masterpieces of artwork, furniture and other accessories.

Where do driftwoods come from? Most of the driftwood is washed ashore on the coastal shores in various areas. Also in deep forests, where rivers rub/scour the banks on which trees have grown, over time some limbs of trees get loosened and flow along the water as driftwood. Also driftwood can come from thick woodlands with streams and lakes. It is deadwood, cured by water mostly. Sometimes without falling into water, dead tree limbs in forests or hilly terrain can become like driftwood which can be used in the same way. Sun, rain and wind bleach it effectively. Whatever be the way, driftwood embodies timelessness and the eternal power of elements over the flora, fauna and human beings. And it brings a whiff of blue oceans, green forests, sun and sand.

Inspired by the unique shapes sculpted by water, wind and sun, there are myriad ways drift woods get shaped – as furniture, as sculptures, mantle frames, mirror frames and as well displayed in their natural glory also. Artists use their imagination along with things like glass, resin and clay to make unique and wonderful looking sculptures, lamps, wall hangings as well as furniture like glass topped tables, chairs etc. Here are some wonderful looking coffee tables, mirror frames, console tables etc from All Driftwood Furniture. Pine, cedar, walnut or oak – any tree’s driftwood works fine. Knots and gnarls in the wood add to the character. Look at the beauty of sun-bleached natural bone-like look of the driftwood. Each one of them is unique and hand crafted beautifully and carefully.

If you are thinking of a DIY with driftwood, cleaning, soaking, sterilizing and other preparations ought to be done. Or you can get some ready-to-use from pet store. Wherever you get it, you are sure to love driftwood furniture.
