Sleeping Solutions for House Guests

Whether it’s a surprise guest who is in need of somewhere to crash for the night or a friend or family member who is staying with you for a little while for a special occasion, sometimes you find yourself in a situation where you need to put someone up for a night.

What is a Mud Room?

If you’ve wandered over here from Google or Bing, chances are that you were looking at ideas on how to decorate your home until… you stumbled upon the word mud room and found yourself asking Google (or Bing) “What is a mud room?”. It doesn’t immediately seem obvious. Is it a room in which you get muddy in? Nope. Is it another name for a green house conservatory? No again. So what is a mud room? A mud room (or mudroom) is a sort of entry room that separates the indoors and the outdoors. Its primary job is to keep the mud out. Usually, the mud room is where you will take off your shoes and hang up your coat, leaving the outdoor … Continue reading

Pros and Cons of Glass Furniture

It can sometimes feel like an irresistible choice when confronted with a gorgeous glass dining table or coffee table. But until you weigh up the pros and cons of glass furniture, how do you know if that gorgeous glass table is really for you and your home or not? The important thing to remember is there are three different types of glass used for furniture. The glass can either just be regular glass (quite fragile, not recommended for heavy usage), annealed or tempered (the most durable of the three).

How We Sleep: International Sleep Statistics

Since this month is officially National Bed Month 2015, we thought it would be appropriate to share some bedroom-related statistics…. The National Sleep Foundation International Bedroom Poll, though it was carried out in 2013, was the first to explore the differences in sleep and bedroom behaviour among six different countries across the world. It might be a rather “old” poll by today’s standards of constant information, but I think it’s pretty safe to say that sleep habits haven’t changed an awful lot in the past couple of years. The six countries examined were: United States Canada Mexico United Kingdom Germany Japan Sleep Habits Average Hours of Sleep Unsurprisingly, it seems that all the countries slept an average of 45 minutes … Continue reading

The Future of Furniture… Realistically.

Is combining furniture with modern technology the next logical step in home design? Of course, there are many people who will completely disagree with this and I’m sure there will be many “analogue” alternatives to tech furniture for centuries to come. Maybe they will eventually be seen as being vintage in style, who knows. But as generations grow older, those who were born into the world of modern technology will be more willing to embrace it as it begins to consume every aspect of their day-to-day life. Bedroom of the Future – designed by the Sleep Council Is the future really as neon as they say? Are our homes going to look like something out of a sci-fi movie? I think we … Continue reading
