Shopping for Bedroom Furniture
There is a lot to consider when shopping for bedroom furniture. Dimensions, room size, durability (especially if you have children) and aesthetics. Of course you want something that looks great!
Why not decide on a theme? Oak and pine furniture look very elegant and grown-up. Both woods are hard-wearing and will last a long time. If you opt for oak or pine furniture, make sure your room is on the larger side, or your bedroom could end up looking rather cramped and uninviting.
If your room is large and you have extra money to spend, why not have your bedroom designed and fitted specifically to your tastes. Many furniture stores offer deals and discounts when you buy everything from them. By doing this, you can ensure every piece of furniture coordinates. Going with this options allows you to have input every step of the way – the result will be a bedroom that is tailored to you and your needs, as well as a design you love. Shop around to get the best deal and be sure to check out the furniture guarantee.
Smaller rooms call for lighter furniture, and not just in color. That four-poster cherry wood bed may have looked fantastic on the shop floor, but if you don’t have any floor space left when you get it into your bedroom, it will be a bit inconvenient. Sofa beds are a great compromise for a small room and are available in a range of colors and styles. Sofa beds are also ideal for studio apartments too. Make sure the bed you desire is suitable for everyday usage (not all of them are) to ensure you get the most out of the furniture.
Many online stores often have good deals on bedroom furniture if money is a bit tight to shell out all at once, and their guarantees mean if anything goes wrong, you will be covered for replacements or repair, providing the item is still under warranty.
Finding the Best Leather Sofas
It seems that leather sofas are back in a big way this year. They have lost the bachelor pad reputation and can be found in homes across the country. But because of this boom in sales some places are trying to sell cheap leather for top prices, so before you step foot in any store it’s important to understand the types of leather out there and their characteristics as there are several types of great leather to keep an eye out for.
One of the most basic types of leather sofas available is made from corrected grain. This has a protective coating which gives a uniformed feel to the leather and makes it fairly soft, while being exceptionally durable.
If you are looking for a high level of protection while still maintaining a softness to your leather sofas then the fine grain leathers are for you. Fine grain leathers have a luxuriously soft feel while being highly protected; this is a great option for leather sofas that will be used every day.
Natural waxed hides are growing in popularity at the moment. They are one of the most natural looking hides available for leather sofas. All the natural elements (some might call them imperfections), such as original scarring and colors are left in to give natural waxed leather hides an original, unique look. These leather sofas are prone to scratching and may discolor, however they will re-color when rubbed or when protective cream is applied. Natural waxed hides come with a light coating of protection to allow the hide to shine through.
If you are looking for a touch of luxury in your leather sofas than look no further than full aniline leather, this is one of the softest leathers on the market. The leather is soft because there is very little protective coating, allowing the softness of the natural hide to come through. Full aniline leather often come as designer leather sofas and are dyed so they do not scratch like natural wax hides, but it is recommended you use protective creams on them about 4 times a year.
