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?

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!

Ottoman – with Storage – Great Accessories for Relaxing Comfort

Winters are great times to enjoy a leisurely and laid-back kind of life. Enjoying the warmth inside and having festivals around the corner can be nice family bonding times. It is the time when friends and relatives visit each other and a lot of entertainment takes place. All houses are spruced up and decorated afresh to welcome the coming festive season.

People love to put their foot up when they like to relax. When you can actually relax in a good sofa with lots of room and a firm seat and a supporting back, you need a foot stool or an ottoman to put your feet up. Ottoman has come down the centuries as the most favoured foot rest in the living room when you want to relax.

Most of the ottomans come with a base frame – wooden or metal – and an upholstered top portion. The base frame can have solid legs or castors attached so you can glide it along to where you want it. Most of the ottomans today have either side open storage space or more commonly by lifting the top seat portion for additional storage.

Ottoman come in any shape – round, square, rectangular, semi circles, triangular even – and they generally are upholstered in matching colours and patterns to the sofa set, sectionals or the single sofas. There are cocktail ottomans – long bench like ottomans where you can serve coffee, tea or preferably cocktails for an evening party.

Ottomans provide extra seating also. If you have an empty wall without any other furnishing you can have a longish ottoman built to order with storage underneath to store the extra blankets, cushions and books etc. Today wicker ottomans are in much demand as they are light and easily portable even outdoors where it is used for storing, seating and serving.

If you have a roomy recliner sofa, with an ottoman that can be attached to it, you can have additional bedding for an overnight extra guest in the living room. Well matched ottomans and sofas can look very elegant and stylish adding to the style quotient of your living room furniture and can even be the focus of the living room décor.

Beautifully Done Bedrooms With Relaxing Designs

Bedroom furniture is the first focus point when you start furnishing your home. More than any other room in the house, bedrooms is where we spend major part of our life. Some like to first select their beds – mattresses and then select a fitting bed frame for their bedrooms. Some have fixed ideas about how their beds should look and buy the bed frames first and then buy a suitable and comfortable bed for that.

Suppose your family members are tall people, then it makes sense first to select the size of the mattress first and then get a bed frame that will be suitable for that mattress. The next important thing is the size of the bedroom also. If it is a tiny bedroom in a small house/apartment, you have to utilize every inch of the space available in a well planned way that gives a spacious and open look to the bedroom.

Once you have planned for a built-in wall wardrobe, or a wall-supported wardrobe, the rest of the bedroom area can be planned for optimal placement of the bed, bedside night stands, chest of drawers or dressing table, and at least one relaxing kind of a chair. These are the most basic and essential of the bedroom furniture – maybe along with a coffee table or an ottoman.

Placing the bed against the long wall and try to keep the window to one side can be advantageous. This will help you in getting a good comfortable and roomy headboard to your bed that can be placed against the wall. Another option can be to have floating shelves fixed to the wall behind the bed for keeping books, music, and other sundry items like remotes, cells, music and other stuff.

By having some free space before the window, you can arrange to have a small credenza or a console table there for keeping your laptop there if you want to work in your bedroom. Another option is to keep the chest of drawers or dresser along the window as a dressing area. But you should make sure that the area is sufficiently lit conveniently for dressing up or for working on laptop.

Here are some images of beautiful bedroom furniture from Mobileffe. Look at the beautiful low-hung beds with good supportive mattress. Bed, dresser, nightstand and the chair are all nicely matched in color and finish. Don’t you want your bedroom to look like this?
