Top reasons you should use upholstered bedframes 0

No doubt, the first thing that comes to mind when we hear the word bedroom is a bed. Most people do not know that until you have a bedframe and a mattress, you cannot say you have a bed. Funny right? But it is true.

Due to furniture trends, there are quite a lot of bedframes ranging from the iron bed frame to the plain wooden bedframe and the upholstered which is our focus right now.

By way of introduction, an upholstered bedframe is a bedframe that includes foot and headboard made of materials such as velvet, faux leather, suede or any other materials other than wood.

Upholstered bedframes have become the most sought after these days for so many reasons. Here are a few of those reasons. 


It is provable beyond every reasonable doubt that good sleep has a lot to do with the comfortability of your bed. To have a good sleep, there is a need for your bed to fit your size enough for you to be able to roll from side to side. An upholstered bed would give you all the shades of comfort you desire. One beautiful thing about an upholstered bed is that with the cushion and the other material support, you don’t really need to go for a very expensive mattress to get the kind of comfortable sleep you desire. 

Choose your Colour:

 With a Upholstered bed, you get to chose the colour that suits and blends with both sleeping mood and your bedroom. You can also choose the kind of fabric that would harmonize your bedroom interior. This is just enough as a reason to switch; Don’t you think so? 


As against plain wooden bedframes and iron or metal bedframes, upholstered bedframes look classier and more elegant. So, if you are the type that likes to make a statement of class even in your bedroom; an upholstered bedframe is your go-to.  

Low Maintenance:

Upholstered bedframes are easier to maintain and durable. They are mostly made of more durable wood which makes them stronger and qualified to stand the test of time. The materials used in padding also contributes to their durability. They are very easy to clean and as such attract less stress.   

If you have been using some other bedframes before now; this is the right time to make that switch. You can get a pocket-friendly upholstered bed on HOG and you can even pay on installments if you like.

Top uncommon extras for your kitchen

Top uncommon extras for your kitchen 0

You would agree with me that the kitchen is not just one of the most important parts  of a home but the real deal that makes a Home what it is. It is more like the  assembly point for every member of the home including visitors. Making it look the  best is not just to be left as an imagination but should be transformed to reality. 

The kitchen must contain the regulars, your cooker, plate and spoon racks and all  but there are a few uncommon features that can actually turn your kitchen into a  more amusing and comfortable space. 

I have quite a bucket full list of those features but I will mention a few that caught my  fancy most. Let’s go:

1. Cutting Board Slot

For someone like me who likes to bake, fry and do all those kitchen activities meant  to be occasional more often; having more than one cutting board becomes very  important. It would be nice to have not just a space for those beautiful uncommon  utensils but a slot. It would not only make your kitchen look arranged but also elegant, coordinated and mature. I believe you know arrangement and cleanliness are the very regular struggle in a frequently used kitchen. Lol!

2. Pull out Pantry:

Pantries are more like shelves or cabinets that can serve the purpose of extra  storage. One most attractive thing about a pull-out pantry is it helps you to save space while having additional storage. With pull-out pantries, I can have a larger storage in a smaller space and still keep my kitchen neat, and well arranged.

3. Store above your window

I have noticed there can never be enough storage space in a kitchen no matter how  big or maybe I should just speak for myself. Anyways a very creative and uncommon way to add a unique feature to your kitchen while solving this storage issue is to create a store above your window. This wouldn’t take much from you actually; just a little wood work would get this done. I think I should mention this to you; do not cluster the whole space. 

4. Get a hidden workspace

This is my favourite feature. Whoever told you cooking and working simultaneously  is not workable lied. All you need to do is make the workplace hidden and you would  be able to zone in and concentrate on your stuff. What more, if you have kids; you  can get their assignments done while doing things in the kitchen. 

5. Get Floating Shelves

Another uncommon feature you should add to your kitchen is a floating shelf.

Contrary to what some people think, floating shelves are not just for living rooms and  bedrooms alone; they blend perfectly into the kitchen. If you are the type that likes to display a few things in your kitchen, then a floating shelf is your go to. 

Do you have a few uncommon extras in your kitchen or the ones you would want us to add?

10 Interesting Facts on Interior Design Everyone Should Know 1

We have 10 interesting facts about interior design everyone should know.

1. Colors Make A Room

The colors in a room give it power, transform it and make it a different world than the rest of the house. When you paint a bold accent wall or paint a ceiling a certain color, the room takes on its own life. From standard neutrals to moody hues, each color gives the room a different feel. Pastels give rooms warmth. Dusty teal is a popular color that pairs well with all neutrals for a fresh look. Cool grays and blues bring a peaceful feel. 

2. Natural Elements Boost Productivity

Whether you work from home or go into an office, the design of your workspace matters. Interior design can actually create an environment that promotes concentration and productivity. Natural elements like the use of lighting, windows and live plants help you focus on projects. The design of your workspace shouldn't be cluttered, but minimal. 

3. Actress Elsie De Wolfe Make Interior Decorating A Career

Actress Elsie de Wolfe is credited for being the first professional interior decorator in 1905. She was hired to do the interior decorating of New York's first club for women. She used a feminine style with a light look, tiled floors, wicker chairs, and trellised rooms. She is famous for her simple, pure style. She loved white paint, lights and comfy chairs. 

4. Interior Design Does Not Equal Interior Décor

Interior design and interior decor are not the same thing. Interior design is more about evaluating the room and then using the room's space. The space needs to bring different moods to the home. Interior design also means making the decor in the room versatile bringing the atmosphere to life. Interior decor is about furniture, decorations and accessories that make up the room. They two work together to create the perfect feel and function. 

5. Rooms Should Be Functional, Not Perfect

If a room looks great, but isn't comfortable, don't settle for it. Your home should be inviting to all that enter. You can create lavish spaces that function like a museum, but it'll be wasted space because you'll never be able to live in the spaces. Each space should be a mix of function, design and comfort. 

6. Interior Designs Don't Have To Be Artsy

Interior design doesn't have to be over-the-top. Some rooms may be simple while others lavish. Many rooms just need a polished look. This brings a classic feel. Wall panels, paint and accessories can have a simplistic look for an elegant feel. The room needs to serve a purpose. Style doesn't always jump off the walls at you, sometimes it's subtle in beauty and function. 

7. Eco-friendly Products Are Trendy

Eco-friendly is a trend these days. Interior design products that are eco-friendly boost any space. The benefits of these products and materials are that they have a lower maintenance cost, better quality and can be energy efficient. Using eco-friendly materials for installation is even better for any room. Eco-friendly products are sustainable and functional. 

8. Design Is In The Details

Details make a room come to life. Spacing and doors might not seem like much, but they can change the mood of a room. The smallest details shine in the final result. Textures, finishes, colors and placement of accessories are crucial to the look and feel of the room. 


9. Lighting Helps Health

The amount of lighting in each room can help your mental and physical health. Living plants and greenery help relax the mind. When the mind is able to relax, the body will then relax. Studies show that patients in hospitals have a positive reaction to windows. Think if you worked or lived in a room without windows for a large part of the day. Lighting and windows bring a lighter, positive feel to each room.

10. The Average Lifespan Of Your Couch

Your couch takes a lot in its lifespan. On average, 782 people will sit on it and 1,663 spills will fall on it. These statistics might sound crazy, but it means your furniture needs to function. Choose furniture that matches with your design, is comfortable and durable. If you have pets or kids, lean towards leather or microfiber fabric. 

Interior design changes over the years. It's important to stay updated on the designs. The main thing to remember is a room should have function and style rolled into one room. Have fun as you work to make your home dreams come true.
