Wood Shutters for Our Lakeside Home

My wife and I bought a piece of property next to a lake a few years ago. Last year we had a cottage built on the property. We replaced the aging boat dock, and now have a really nice lakeside home. It is perfect for the two of us and our three pups. In picking out items to decorate it, we really liked the look of the wood shutters from Orange County Blinds. They are custom made for each window. They are installed on the inside, and you have louvered slats that open and close to control light and privacy. You can also swing them wide open.

We really like the house to be filled with light during the day, but we like full privacy at night. The wood shutters are great for this. We swing them open in the morning in the dining nook off from the kitchen. It really brightens up the area. The window faces east over the lake, and we sit and watch the sun rise over the horizon while we eat breakfast. Read the rest of this entry »

3D Sunflower Sheets for My Daughter

I was trying to think of a great gift to give my daughter for her birthday. She absolutely loves sunflowers, but I still did not know how to incorporate that into an amazing gift. I did a search to get some unique suggestions, and that is exactly what I got. I found some 3D bed sheets in Australia that are nothing short of amazing. There are quite a few really neat designs, but I was just focused on the 3D Sunflower sheets. I was not really expecting to be wowed, because I have seen 3D films in the past and not been that impressed.

Seeing this 3D bedding made me realize just how amazing 3D can be though when it actually works. Read the rest of this entry »

Simple Steps To Help You Better Understand Furniture

People buy furniture every day. Anyone that has a home needs furniture. This is why so many possibilities exist. You need to balance finding furniture that fits both your home and your budget. Here is some helpful advice for buying great furniture.

When buying furniture, quality is important. Custom furniture makers will not use nails and glue to join wood corners and ends together. They will use a process known as wood joinery. This produces a high quality joint that will be sturdier and will take more weight. Nails and glue construction will not deliver a solid quality product.

When purchasing a new dining room table and chairs, look for solid wood pieces. With these pieces, you can have the table and chairs refinished if they get scratched up. If you cannot afford solid wood, purchase a dining room table pad or a tablecloth to help protect your table’s finish.

If you are looking at outdoor furniture pieces, consider buying them when summer has just ended. As summer draws to an end, retailers will be wanting to bring in winter stock and thus will be eager to release any remaining summer product. They will reduce their prices to get rid of items.

Never go cheap on your bed. You may think your sofa is the piece of furniture that gets the most time, but for most people it’s the bed. Pay the extra price to get one that’s totally comfortable for you. It’s well worth it, and it can really affect how you feel on a daily basis. Read the rest of this entry »

Would you like to buy a discount dining table? A cheap chair? An elegant armoire? Regardless of the purchase you want to make, you need to do it on budget without sacrificing quality. That means reading this article in full, accepting the tips below as the gospel truth and getting down to shopping!

Keep the future location of any piece of furniture in mind when shopping. This factor should affect the fabric colors you choose. Light color fabrics are ideal for bedrooms, foyers and even formal living rooms. On the other hand, any piece of furniture likely to be used frequently is better served with darker colors.

Watch out for furniture that is poorly made. To ensure that you are purchasing a sofa that will withstand the punishment your family can do to your sofa turn the sofa upside down and look at the structure of the sofa. Poorly made furniture will be made using 1×1’s instead of 2×2.

You need to buy furniture that will go well with the rest of your home. For example, if you have an updated house, it is not very wise to antique furniture and vice versa. Unless you want your home to look tacky, it is important to take this into account.

If you are planning on buying some large furniture items, make sure you pick items that fit your family and lifestyle. A beautiful white suede sofa might be an excellent choice a bachelor or couple without children. This might not be a good choice for people who have children or pets. One spill could ruin the fabric or a pet jumping on it could tear the cushions. Read the rest of this entry »

How do you feel about your furniture purchase decisions of the past? If you think that you could do better, then it’s a good idea to read through the information that is here in this article. It will help guide you to making better decisions about buying furniture when it’s time.

Be aware of the types of wood your furniture is typically made from. Different types of wood have different qualities, so the same piece of furniture made from one type of wood may be a whole lot sturdier when made from a different type of wood. This can also lead to a bigger price as well.

Be conservative with your color choices. You may be totally into bright red right now, and a red couch is calling your name. But where will you be next year when that color is totally out of fashion? Furniture is costly to replace, so you’re better off opting for more neutral colors.
