Tips and Tricks On Decorating Child’s Bedroom

Just the same, as adults, little ones need and want a fabulous, comfortable and functional bedroom. Today the Furniture Cart specialists in home décor and interior design are here to give you few tips and tricks on creating the magnificent space for a child that will become a true retreat and a favorite spot for your little superhero or a tender lady.

Fleeting childhood years are the most important in growing an imaginative and self-confident personality inside your little treasure, so let your child enjoy it to the full extent and involve your kid into the creative process of making their nook, while choosing the color scheme, main theme of bedroom and furnishings.

Well, frankly speaking, this is the first you have to start with! Just before decorating or going shopping, you have to ask your child to imagine and tell you how the dream bedroom looks; what will the main theme of the nook be; and what the favorite colors of your little one are. Let’s have the precise look at the rules and regulations of this very important process.

Follow the interests of your child

Every kid has a passion for something special. Either baseball, space, science, Marvel characters or Disney princesses and fairies, it is pretty easy to work the top interest into the main bedroom theme. It does not mean that you have to overwhelm with the only one character and theme, just few things will be enough to keep simple yet stylish. Few wall decals, accessories and a comforter will help to keep up with it. Moreover, when your son or daughter matures, it will be easier to rearrange.

Chose the color palette… and add something extra!

Keep in mind the color your kid loves, and let it be the dominant color in the ambience or select two tones which your son or daughter prefers. Add the third one completely different, yet appealing to your child. This color becomes “accent” color for some accessories, accent chair or a beanbag, accent pillows. Adding a fluffy rug will help to complete the whole style and make it a cozy and restful room. Just let both the imagination of yours and your child flow!

Mess vs Storage

Small kids and mess usually go together, don’t they? Solutions are always easy: use a plenty of alternatives to store and convert the mess into order and make it a well-organised place. Use open shelves for an easy access to the things your child loves or uses often, and keep the rest of the stuff in the drawers, chests or storage beds. Check!

Shrink?!

Don’t panic if you have a small space but a long list of wishes for a dream bedroom from your child! It is easy to maximize the space by furniture rearrangement and a touch of space improvement. Interior designer tip: push the bed against the wall, so the headboard is in the corner. It’s definitely a win-win – cause avoiding open areas around the sleeping spot cuts down the fears of the monsters under the bed (verified!) and it opens up the space in the middle of the room.

Doubled, tripled and more

If still there’s not much space, but it has to be shared by two or more kids, a bunk bed or trundle may be a good option. Still leave enough freedom for each of your young heirs to add their own bedding, bedside lamp or artwork to hang over in their nook, which will help to set their individual style. And, with the bunk beds – don’t forget to set the safety rules.

Smart

Once your kid is grown up enough to have regular study at home, he/she needs an area for focused homework and another area to rest. Designer’s tip for you due to that fact: you will have to arrange the furniture for the study close to the window to let enough daylight to lit the study corner. To save space or to get the most of your furniture investment, select the furniture with the smart options, the one that is easily transformed or continues to be used as the kid grows.

Wish you to have an inspiring decorating and rearrangement, and don’t forget that it is the process supposed to give you and your child a lot of positive emotions and a great fun!

Sofa Styles You Need to Know for Your Stylish Home

While looking for a right sofa to fit your space and home style you will find out plenty of designs and sofa styles. Today the Furniture Cart team defines the most popular types of sofas, so you can not only understand a difference between Tuxedo and Chesterfield, but explain it also.

We will start from the retro furniture piece, making it easier to distinguish this style from the rest on the list. Mid-Century Modern sofa is usually characterized by a clean-lined, exposed delicate wood legs, rectangular shape, tufting. Usually made in leather or tweed, this sofa takes roots from the furniture styles of the middle of the previous century.

Chesterfield has peculiar features of the deep button tufting on the back and the rolled arms. Moreover, the arms are the same height as the back and it is often made of leather. Just think of the sophisticated library couch style – and it is definitely about Chesterfield.

Camelback has an arched back reminding of the animal it is named after. The back typically has one or two humps, the same as the aforesaid animal, by the way. Elegant curves’ style creates graceful look in the living room space. Originally this kind of couch featured an ornate leg or skirt.

Tuxedo sofa is clean-lined and geometric, square frame with the arms and the backrest of the same height. Usually sleek tuxedos are upholstered with fabric making it the buttoned-up and modern piece for the ones, who love minimalistic look.

Bridgewater is estimated to be a comfortable classic of the sofas, creating a casual and friendly look to a room. It features the angled upholstered back and low, set-back armrests.

The hallmarks of the Lawson sofa are square or rolled arms that are lower than the squared back. The couch has been designed for the financier Thomas W. Lawson, so no wonder it had comfort in mind, featuring deep wide seat good for relaxing or reading a book in.

English (aka English rolled arm) features low arms, high backrests and loose cushions on the bottom (making it extra comfortable to seat), upholstery is tight throughout. Sometimes the arms are so low that it appears to be armless.

Sectionals are multi-piece sofas, they can be manufactured and arranged in multiple configurations. Two common configurations of these kind are L-shape and U-shape, but there’s much more to get to know about sectionals, as they are gaining popularity and the list is becoming vast and versatile.

Gorgeous Cabriole sofa was popularized by Louis XV in the beginning of the 1700s. It features the exposed carved wooden frame, and the legs that curve outwards and down, upholstered in soft fabrics, like linen, cotton and velvet to create a cozy feel.

Knole sofa is the one which first appeared at Knole House, Kent in the 17th century. The armrests are as high as the head and the seating has considerable depth. Usually used by the head of the house to formally receive guests and visitors, it has many features reminding the actual throne.Hopefully, now you are keen in the sofa styles and kinds, and you will definitely get inspired and find the right one for your cozy space!

Tips for the Best Dresser Choice

What is a dresser in your room? Undoubtedly, it is not only the functional chest of drawers to store your socks and hoodies, lingerie and pajamas. It is one of the major parts in your overall room decorating, reflecting your design ideas, the look that you adore and that inspires you when entering your room. Still with no loss of functionality! Thus, to find the right piece for your personal room, studio apartment, spacious bedroom or a cubicle, making budget meet style desires, it deserves a better care than only ‘˜one click’.

HOW TO CHOOSE A PROPER DRESSER FOR YOUR ROOM?

First measure the space the dresser will occupy. Think of the place available for this furniture piece and where you’d like it to go, find several options and choose the right one. The space available for it will give you an idea of the shape and size of the dresser appropriate for your room. Keep the width, height and depth written, so it won’t slip out of mind, when you are swept by the style and options available online at Furniture Cart.

When measuring, take precise attention to few things around the space available for your dresser:

  • Make sure you have enough clearance and it is not too close to the bed, any other furnishings, or the door of your room (when closed or opened)
  • Check if there’s room to open the drawers easily with enough space to take out the stuff you need from it
  • If you are planning to put it under the window, mirror or the wall art piece, pay attention to the height of the dresser.

A dresser fits the best at the plain wall, allowing you to hang a mirror or a decorative piece above it. We don’t recommend placing a dresser with a corner sticking out on your way to bathroom or entrance to the room to avoid any kind of traumas when being in a hurry or making your way to the bathroom in the dark.

Consider your storage needs and put attention to the quantity, shapes of drawers and shelves available. Decide what stuff you are going to keep in your chest. If it comes only to lingerie and sweaters, you will have to look for different sized drawers and available shelves only. However, if you want to keep a lot more versatile things, like jewelry and clothes, then you’ll have to look for more options available by manufacturers.

The practical considerations of measurements and storage assess will help you narrow down your options. Afterwards you are welcome to make a decision on the style, color and design within the budget available and in the frames of the measurements and storage needs.
