How to Choose Children’s Bedding

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

Once your infant grows into a child, you would have to abandon his crib and get him his own room. Of course, you need to purchase a children’s bedding to make his bed more attractive. To make things easier, you should know the color and style your child prefers. This way, you can match the bedding to his likes and you are sure that he will enjoy his room.

This is so important because children can be very picky about their bedroom. They may have a particular theme, animal or cartoon character that they love. This could include Thomas the Tank Engine, Bob the Builder or Barney. It is important to remember that a child’s bedroom is not only where they sleep but also a place of refuge. That’s why it should reflect their personality and preferences.

So you don’t spend a fortune on children bedding go to the sales and pick out several different bedding styles. Then ask your child to choose which one they prefer. That way you will be able to regulate the costs but also have your child involved in choosing their bedding.

The material from which the bedding is made is another important consideration. Some children can be allergic to certain materials or dye. Today, it is possible to buy anti-allergen materials which can help avoid the breeding of such things as bed bugs or dust mites. You can help the situation by changing and washing the bedding often which means you will need several forms of bedding.

You can buy children’s bedding from most large department stores or small boutique children’s store.

Bespoke Fitted Wardrobes

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

A bespoke fitted wardrobe is tailor-made for your room by taking measurements of even the most awkward spaces available – even around established features like eaves and chimney breasts. Amazingly, you can increase your storage space by 40-50% with a fitted robe as opposed to a generic, free-standing one. You can also add useful bespoke features like mirrors, shelving, safes, and even folding work tables to create a compact home office.

Another great benefit of fitted wardrobes is you can make the most of your floor space and not let any areas go to waste – whether it’s an attic room with sloping ceilings or an oddly shaped bedroom with lots of alcoves. However, fitted robes aren’t just for rooms with too many nooks and crannies. They also add a fantastic designer touch to master bedrooms, guest bedrooms and even childrens’ bedrooms…

Types of Bespoke Wardrobes

There are three types of bespoke wardrobes available: sliding doors, bi-fold doors and pivot doors to cater to your exact needs. Wardrobe designs range from wall-to-wall executive suites, to traditional two-door robes with mirror pannelling, to space-saving alcove closets.

You can choose from a range of natural wood colours like coffee, chocolate, caramel or pine – or go for bold statements like black and red geometric patterns or eye-catching primary colours for kid’s bedrooms. With bespoke wardrobes, the possibilities are limitless and you have the opportunity to create your own unique piece of designer furniture. Alternatively, if you don’t want to play the creative cat, you can choose from a fabulous range of existing designs which are then made to measure – giving you an excellent impression of what the final piece will look like.

The Cost of Fitted Wardrobes

The beauty of custom-built furniture is that you can decide how large or small your fitted wardrobe will be, what materials to use, and even what types of shelving, drawers and mirrors to place on the inside. This means the cost of fitted wardrobes can vary considerably – but generally you can expect to pay £1,000 to £1,500 for a two-door alcove wardrobe (depending on the size and specification, the internal layout and the materials used). Elaborate, full scale fitted wardrobe suites can cost thousands of pounds.

Adding Value with Fitted Furniture

If you’re into home improvement, installing fitted furniture is an excellent way to add value to your home. A fitted wardrobe looks impressive, adds considerable character and functionality, and helps the room retain its aesthetic appeal for years to come. It is particularly in modern, bijou apartments where storage space is at premium. Clever use of space will always add value to your property.
