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?

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.

Great Furniture for Your Kids’ Rooms

Once the children grow-up they love to have their rooms furnished the way they want. Actually very young children are not all that keen about how much you are spending on furnishing their room. All they are expecting is that it comes up to their idea of a dream room for themselves. So it is best to involve them in the process of choosing furniture, furnishing and accessories for their rooms.

With the space restriction that comes along with the small spaces we have today, many a time siblings have to share room. Sometimes kids’ room size can be really small – maybe just a minuscule area. Even if it is only a tiny alcove or a attic like room, a child would love the privacy his room gives and loves all the more to have a space all his own.

The operating principle will be space optimization. You have to try and make a study area, sleeping area as well as storage area in one tiny room. Bunk beds are great even if you have only one child. The lower area can be utilized as a table with storage space underneath and the upper portion – neatly furnished as a bed with safety rails etc.

Today beds come with underneath storage options that can contain any likely clutter usually happening in small spaces. You can check out beds with trundle options for accommodating your child’s friend occasionally. Floating shelves and floating desktops are good options leaving precious floor space free for that open uncluttered look.

Presently children furniture section has grown in leaps and bounds. Entire stores are selling furniture exclusively devoted only to children. Separate furniture design lines are devoted for kids’ furniture, right from baby stage, toddlers, pre teens, teens etc differently for boys, girls and twins etc, much to the delight of both parents and the children.

Here you see some very pretty-looking kids’ furniture from Kids’ Room. The corner bunk-bed with a sturdy-looking ladder and a designed safety rail will be particularly attractive to your boy. The popular below-bed storage option is very welcome in both boys and girls rooms for storage. And the open floating shelf above the writing table looks pretty as well functional.

I am sure you are keen to makeover your kids room in a way it makes you happy and leave the child hugely satisfied to have what he/she exactly wanted!

Storage Organizers for Keeping Clutter Away in Your Home Maintenance

Orderliness and tidy look can be only achieved if we methodically and periodically remove clutter from the house on a regular basis. Organizing must be done frequently as there can be too much accumulation of items as we keep buying more and more. Especially with the kind of small houses and studio apartments we have, storage options are not many.

How to keep the shelves and cabinets neat and tidy? Keep checking your entire kitchen for things that are out of date, recipes that you do not use, broken china that should be thrown away, bent and tarnished cutlery and cracked crockery. Check that you are not stocking old flour, creamers, and other stuff with expired date of manufacturing.

Ruthlessly start throwing things that you will not need at all. Put in a carry bag things that are in good condition but not presently used by you and things that you no longer are using as much as before to be given away. Change the paper lining after thoroughly cleaning it and giving it a lick of paint if needed.

Likewise in the bedroom and bathroom closets and bedroom wardrobe cabinets, check for stuff that are not your size now, that you no longer use now, things that are out of your present dress mode and stuff you have not used in the past six months. Throw away what cannot be used and pack in a carry bag what can be given away to others,

Now that you have got rid of the clutter that takes precious space, check whether you need more storage space. You can have some floating shelves or open shelves that you can stake against the wall in your living room, dining room or bedroom for additional storage. Pretty-looking floating shelves can be fitted in the foyer as well over console tables etc.

Check how good-looking the old shelves are. Give a touch of paint if needed in the same matching colour scheme as the flooring or other furniture in the room. Check what things you can keep on the shelves. Arrange the items beautifully and aesthetically so that the room has an enhanced look. Get a vase of fresh and fragrant flowers for a touch of aesthetics.

Here are some beautiful organizers and shelves from Smart Furniture. All of them are good looking and will add grace and beauty to your home. Which is your favourite?

Oak Sideboards for Your Dining Room Furniture

Dining rooms are high-traffic areas and pulse center of your home. Dining rooms are where the family get together to have their meals. This is where the family bond nicely over their breakfast or dinner. Dinner times are when we relax together talking over the day-to-day occurrences and share their experiences and unwind from the stress of day.

Dining tables often get cluttered with the multifarious things that we happen to need while we eat. And many a time, when we may need extra cutlery, crockery etc in hurry and it is wise to have all these items nearby. A sideboard – spacious and well designed – can make it easier for you when you serve your meals with providing extra space and storage.

Sideboards are ideal places to store your cutlery, crockery and wine. Specially constructed wine storage racks will be ideal for storing them. Sideboards make storage easy in the dining room making it look less cluttered and more orderly. With separate drawers and shelves for storing your condiments and other items that you need in dining room.

Wooden sideboards are the most popular choice. To have a complete dining room set, it is best to have the dining table, chairs, and sideboards all in the same style and made of the same wood. Suppose you have an oak dining table and chair set, it is ideal to have an oaken sideboard in the same grain finish so they complement each other ideally.

Well-crafted sideboards are from good quality wood which is kiln dried. Some of the sideboards which are commonly available are made of compressed wood and solid-wood veneer finish. Today high-quality compressed wood also is moisture and termite-proof, fire retardant and retains shape quite reasonably. But this is not as fine looking as original solid wood.

Dovetail joints, smooth finish inside and outside, brass/solid wood handles, beautifully worked drawers and panels are all the features of high-quality side boards. They provide assured and durable service, without drying out or losing their shape, color or finish for long years. The distressed rustic look may be great to add rural charm to your home.

Here are some beautiful oak sideboards from Swanky Rooms Co. These are made of original oak wood which is kiln dried and mature. They are also hand crafted and manufactured to add great beauty and value to your home.
