How to Choose Wood (Bedroom) Furniture Colors Combination?: Tips and Guidelines

When I was selecting furniture for my home, I found that there are too many things that we have to concentrate!

First of all furniture depends on in which room you want to make your furniture? Generally in Drawing room Furniture color must be lighter so that when you come at your home it can give you some relaxation and you can feel light !

If you are planning to make furniture in your room than it can be dark all light. It depends on your favorite color and your mood. Of course seeing your room it can be decided your nature and about your favorite things. Generally you should choose dark color in your room so that whenever you come in your room it will take you to another world ! Dark color can be too many types but mostly it will be better that you choose black or coffee.

In kitchen I will suggest you to choose light color for that. And It will be better that if you choose double color shade in just kitchen. If you are going to choose dark color it will look some black effect. So, If you like dark color but don’t use it only kitchen. If you want to choose only one color than there are also lots of options that are great to look.

Whenever you choose furniture color ( sheet color) for any room, just choose any one color. Don’t use two or more color in single room. Because there are not good combination for double color. If you want to select two color than straight way go with “Black and White” or “Dark Coffee and White”. If you select coffee and other light color like cream it will look dull at all. So, I will strictly tell you to not choose this type of color.

If you choose only one color in room than that’s the best. Because it will look simple and rich. but at that time you should choose sheet of furniture with some effect like 3d effect or some shining sheet. that will make your room efficient to see. That is important thing after all interior of our houses and homes are very essential to our feelings and emotional well-being.

How to Find and Buy Furniture Made in the USA

Finding furniture made in the USA is easier than you think!

Furniture sales have traditionally occurred around President’s Day, Columbus Day, and other long weekends. This year, Presidents’ Day is February 20. If you will be shopping for furniture this President’s Day weekend, consider having your money support American jobs by buying furniture made in the USA.

According to the web site of the nation’s largest labor union, the AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations), about three million U.S. manufacturing jobs have disappeared since 1998; it is estimated that about 1.8 million were lost due to off-shoring. U.S. furniture manufacturing has lost about one in three jobs since about 2000.

Nevertheless, there is good news among the bad: There is still a significant amount of furniture manufacturing left in the United States, enough so that you can buy USA-made furniture without making an exhaustive search to find it. You can buy furniture made in the USA in large department stores, in furniture stores and online. The lists and information detailed in this article are by no means a complete list – if you don’t like what you see described below, there is a huge amount of online resources to do your own research. Some research links are provided below.

There is one caveat if you are shopping for made in the USA furniture, which you can probably guess – it is difficult to find economy-priced furniture that is made in the USA. That is NOT to say that all USA-made furniture is more expensive that furniture made in the China. Most of the furniture found in the research for this article was competitive in price with mid-range furniture made off-shore. And of course, there is a good supply of high-end, quality, furniture made domestically, if you can afford it.

If you can only afford the low end – say, about $400 or $500 for a sofa, versus about $800 to $1300 – you will have a difficult time finding a sofa made in this country. A few hundred dollars more should get you a domestically-made sofa. BUT, there is another option, if you really want to buy American – a futon. There are both futon frames and mattresses, made in the USA, available online at They offer 22 different futon frames made in the USA, and many more futon mattresses that are domestically made. You build your own futon and order it online. Between the frame, the mattress, the mattress cover and the shipping, you will probably not be able keep your total below $400, but there is a toll-free phone number to call for help and advice to get the lowest price possible. You get the advantage of having an extra bed in case you need one, at a much lower price than a sleeper sofa, and the satisfaction of having supported American jobs.

Finally, one more note before the research: Furniture, even restricted to home furniture, is a huge category. To make my search more manageable, I looked for only two pieces of furniture – a sofa, which is an upholstered piece of furniture, and a bedroom dresser, which is most often made of wood. As you will see, the number of options and opportunities to buy American are almost overwhelming, depending on what you are willing to pay, how hard you are willing to look, and if you are willing to wait for your furniture to be manufactured and shipped to you.

I searched the web for furniture sold by department stores, furniture stores, and online. I used the search terms “furniture made in the USA” to research domestic manufacturers of furniture, plus I threw in searches on a few well-known furniture brands. While I tried to back-up check as much information as possible online (such as Ethan Allen’s 2010 Annual Report) to verify that the companies actually do have manufacturing in the USA, much of this information is relying on the company’s honesty. If you use this article as a guide to finding furniture made in the USA, I urge you to double check with the salesperson or customer service, to verify that the furniture really was made in the USA. If nothing else, it reinforces to business that you do care about their claims and are willing to check them out.

Department Store Furniture – Macy’s, Dillard’s, Sear’s, Target and Walmart.

I checked out the web sites of these mid-range to budget major department store chains, looking for furniture made in the USA. There are many other department stores to check.

I was pleasantly surprised by Macy’s, for two reasons: They had about a half dozen different furniture collections labeled as made in the USA, and, I was actually able to search on the terms ‘made in the USA’ on their web site, to find the furniture. The sofas I checked on ran from about $700 (the “Dana” collection) to $1200 (for Denim collection) and more. There is plenty of living room furniture to choose from at the Macy’s website, but alas, not so with the bedroom dresser. No dressers turned up in the search, and the few I checked on were listed as “imported.” But I give Macy’s a lot of credit, both for carrying some upholstered furniture made in the USA at a reasonable price, and actually being willing to say whether their goods are produced in the US or overseas. (More on that topic in a future article!)

Dillard’s, on the other hand, was disappointing, in that their website didn’t list the country of origin for almost all of their furniture – searching their website turned up one sofa, for about $1200, labeled made in the USA. My assumption, correct or not, is that if it doesn’t say, it’s probably from overseas. None of the dressers had country of origin listed.

Target’s results were as expected, considering their price point. To their credit, they at least say whether an item is imported. My search on the Target website on ‘made in the USA’ turned up no furniture, but ironically, did turn up a book entitled, “Re-Made in the USA, How we can restore jobs, retool manufacturing and compete with the World.”

Sears’ website searches outside the Sear’s inventory to give you additional options. It was a little confusing, but it looks like the search is only performed on the title, since anything with “made in the USA” in the title showed up the search. In the listings, it does not say whether an item is imported or domestic. Within the Sear’s furniture inventory – which had sofas as low as $400 – there were no sofas or dressers turned up by the made in USA search, and since Sear’s doesn’t say the country of origin, it’s your guess as to where their furniture is from. Just the fact that Sear’s is such an American icon made it disappointing that I couldn’t tell where their inventory is from.

Bottom line? While there are many other department store chains to check – Bloomingdale’s, Sak’s, JC Penney, and lots of regional department store chains – don’t automatically rule out a department store as a source for made in the USA furniture. I would start with the stores who own up online to where their goods come from, like Macy’s, and work my way down the chain. Predictably, Walmart’s website doesn’t list a country of origin for its goods. Surprised, anyone?

Specialty and Furniture Stores – Pottery Barn, Crate&Barrel, Ashley Furniture, Ethan Allen and La-Z-Boy.

Your chances of buying made in the USA furniture might be better than you think at these five major furniture vendors. Here’s a quick rundown on their manufacturing, as best as could be gleaned from searches of their furniture advertised online to checking our their annual reports (if available) to see if they have manufacturing sites in the U.S.:

Ashley Furniture is sold through licensees of the Ashley Furniture HomeStore retail outlets, and it is the number one selling brand of furniture in the U.S. Per Wikipedia, Ashley manufactures its furniture both domestically (there are manufacturing and distribution sites – Ashley doesn’t say on its website how many stateside manufacturing plants it has) and how many overseas (China and Vietnam). They I personally was able to buy Ashley furniture made in the USA several years ago, when shopping for children’s bedroom furniture. The salesperson was able to check where each piece I was interested in was manufactured, and I was able to identify buy only made in the USA pieces. I can only assume that they can still do it today. They have 400 retail stores world wide. For price and sheer number of retail locations, Ashley Furniture might be a good source for domestically-produced furniture for those with limited options.

Crate&Barrel has a ‘made in USA’ searchable website, and they actually had 61 sofas from about 15 different collections labeled as made in the USA, priced from $1,000 to $4,200. They were the only website where I actually found a dresser labeled made in the USA – either the others didn’t have any, or didn’t say the country of origin. If you like Crate&Barrel furniture, you stand a reasonably good chance of getting something made in the USA here. Like Macy’s, two thumbs up for Crate&Barrel’s honesty in publishing the country of origin for their furniture.

For years, the name Ethan Allen was practically synonymous with American-made furniture, and they have gotten a lot of bashing lately for off-shoring manufacturing and poor quality. Well, per their annual report, they actually still make a good portion of their furniture here in the USA. The 2010 Ethan Allen annual report states that about 70% of their furniture is either manufactured or assembled domestically. They have six manufacturing facilities in the U.S., in North Carolina (two), Vermont, Virginia, Oklahoma and New Jersey, according to the annual report.

La-Z-Boy is another iconic American furniture brand, and their website is refreshing in its straightforward discussion about manufacturing furniture in the U.S. Per their website, they have five U.S. manufacturing plants where most of their products are either built or upholstered in the U.S. They point out that the cover material is sourced from overseas, as are some parts and components. They have 3,000 retail locations (undoubtedly that’s world-wide), and their sofa prices online start at $850. One fly in the ointment: Their online listings don’t say where the individual pieces are furniture are made, so, like Ashley Furniture, you’d actually have to go in to a store and ask. Nevertheless,I give La-Z-Boy two thumbs up for their honesty about their manufacturing locations. Along with Ashley Furniture, La-Z-Boy looks like a good bet for finding furniture made in the U.S. without a lot of effort. Of all of the large retailers I researched, La-Z-Boy appears to have the most domestically-made furniture.

Pottery Barn, the fifth furniture retailer I checked out, turned out to be a big disappointment. I could not use the search term ‘made in USA’ to find items made domestically. I looked at individual sofa listings and found that they either say that they are made in the USA, ‘crafted in the USA’ or nothing. I wondered exactly what ‘crafted in the USA’ or ‘crafted by North Carolina master craftsmen’ meant, and I was especially turned off by their little promotional video about their North Carolina upholstery location. I could be wrong, but it looks to me like they upholster some furniture in North Carolina, and ship in assembled furniture from elsewhere, since they only ‘inspect’ the frame to make sure it meets their ‘high quality’ standards. Yep, I felt somehow that Pottery Barn was trying to manipulate me into thinking that they manufacture hand-made furniture in North Carolina, where the reality is probably that their furniture is only upholstered there. If someone out there honestly knows, please comment.

Which brings up a good point that should be mentioned: It appears that Pottery Barn is not alone in only upholstering their furniture state-side, and that you should understand that ‘made in the USA’ claims by some manufacturers may in reality only mean that they upholstered furniture here, but that it was actually built, and the materials sourced, offshore. If it’s important to you (and it is to me), you need to ask.

No Questions It’s Made in the USA Furniture – The Little Guys

When you search on ‘made in USA furniture’ on an internet search engine, the number of small manufacturers that turn up is unbelievable. I had no idea that there are so many small manufacturers of real, solid wood furniture in the USA. Most of them have products that are sold through dealers, in retail furniture stores of varying distribution across the USA. Their websites display beautiful wood and upholstered furniture, and they are proud that they have stayed onshore. You usually cannot buy or even price their furniture online, but can easily use their website to locate a dealer near you. A partial list of these small manufacturers that I came across are:

Some directly market their furniture online, which is terrific for those of us who don’t mind shopping over the web. You can actually price and buy furniture from them over the internet. There are two obvious drawbacks: Shipping charges and the internet problem of not being able to actually see, touch and test out their goods. Nevertheless, their furniture is either all or mostly made in the USA and it’s clearly denoted as such.

Besides these sites, there is the whole marketing effort of High Point, North Carolina to order furniture directly from the manufacturers there. There is a huge array of furniture advertised here, but don’t be misled by the fact that it’s North Carolina, because furniture can still be shipped there from offshore locations. I would still confirm that any furniture I might purchase was actually made in the USA.

Home Decor Ideas Using Spray Paint

Bring new life to your old stuff! You can give a face-lift to almost any item using spray paint. I am a huge fan of spray paint because it is cheap, easy to use, and the results are beautiful. Spray paint comes in every color and multiple finishes. I prefer a satin finish for most home décor projects, but flat and high gloss options are also available. My favorite spray paint is Krylon’s indoor/outdoor paint. It adheres smoothly to surfaces, dries in less than ten minutes, and costs less than $3 per can at Wal-Mart.

Wooden items, such as picture frames, shelves, furniture, and mirrors can be made new with a fresh coat of paint. I have done this with several items in my home and have been thrilled with the result. For picture frames and mirrors, remove the glass from the frame before starting your project. Start by sanding the wood just a little with a piece of fine sandpaper. Sand the entire surface using light, gentle strokes. Roughening the wood up just a little will help the paint stick to the surface. Don’t damage the wood by going crazy with the sand paper. There’s no need to completely remove the old paint or finish.

After sanding, wipe the wood down thoroughly with a damp rag to remove any dust left from sanding. Now you’re ready to paint. It’s best to do the painting outside if at all possible. Spray paint looks best if multiple light coats are applied. Follow the directions on the can for application. Spraying the paint on too thick will lead to drips, which will have to be sanded down and repainted later. Two or three light coats of paint should be enough to achieve a smooth even finish. After the final coat dries, the project is complete. Unlike painting with a brush, there’s relatively no clean up when using spray paint.

Spray paint can also be used to give a new look to lamps, light fixtures and ceiling fans. Turn an old brass fixture into a brushed metal work of art. To start, take the fixture apart, removing any glass, light bulbs, fan blades, or electrical cords. If some of these parts are not removable, cover them with painter’s tape. I prefer brushed metallic paint for metal light fixtures and fans. The look of brushed nickel adds style to any home. Metal items do not need to be sanded prior to painting. Follow the steps outlined above for applying the spray paint. Make sure to read the instructions on the can as well. When the paint is dry, reassemble the fixture and fall in love with its new updated look.

Patio furniture can be updated the same way. Use indoor/outdoor spray paint for metal or wood furniture. If your outdoor furniture is plastic, select a special spray paint made specifically to adhere to plastic such as Krylon’s Fusion for Plastic. A simple paint job can make your outdoor living space look brand new. Kitchen appliances, barbecues, doors, shutters, cabinets, hardware, glass, radiators, and farm equipment can all be recreated using specially designed types of spray paint.

Other fun ideas using spray paint include chalkboards and magnet boards. Believe it or not, you can spray a chalkboard finish onto any surface using chalkboard spray paint. This type of paint comes in dark green or black and can be used to spruce up an old chalkboard or create a completely new one. It’s a great product for classrooms, playrooms, and kids’ bedrooms. Just tape off the area you want to paint with painter’s tape. Make sure the area is clean and dry before painting. All you have to do is spray the paint on and let it dry. You can do the same type of project using magnetic spray paint. This type of paint is great for home office areas, classrooms, workshops, or kids’ rooms.

Unlike the chalkboard paint, the gray magnetic paint is a primer. After taping off and cleaning your surface, paint the area with the magnetic paint. After it dries, paint over it with spray paint that is the color of your choice. Because it is a primer coat, the magnetic paint can be used virtually anywhere because it’s gray color will never be seen under the final top coat of color.

Spray painting saves you money by transforming something you already have instead of buying something new. It’s a way of recycling, so it’s great for the environment. Recycle the spray paint can when you’re done to make this project even more earth friendly. Spray paint costs $1-$6 per can, so it’s a relatively cheap project. I repainted eight dining room chairs for less than $30 using one can per chair. To see pictures of the transformed chairs, click here.

Smaller projects like picture frames and mirror frames will require far less than one can. Spray paint can be purchased at any home improvement store or craft store. I challenge you to find something tucked away in the back of a closet somewhere that you can turn into a stylish piece of décor for your home. You’ll have fun doing the project, you’ll be amazed at the transformation, and you’ll love how easy and inexpensive spray painting projects can be.

Improve Your Bedroom D?cor With Distressed Furniture

A great way of getting a rustic, vintage look in your home is by using distressed furniture .There are lots of distressed pieces you can find on the market for every room in your home.You have the option of getting one or two pieces for a touch of age, or to model your entire room with distressed items for your interior decoration theme.
Distressed bedroom furniture is perfect for a Victorian theme. Apart from distressed beds, there are also dressers, armoires, chests of drawers and bedside cabinets for your bedroom as well. Now the question is: H.ow do I get these distressed bedroom items?
Types of Distressed Pieces of Bedroom Furniture
First of all, you should know which types of distressed items for your bedroom are in the market. The key types are artificially distressed pieces and naturally distressed pieces.These two have different qualities and prices which need to be considered before you buy any distressed piece.
Naturally distressed pieces are those which get the vintage or rustic look due to genuine aging processes. Due to this quality, most of the naturally distressed pieces will most probably be antiques and hence more expensive.If this is what you prefer, make sure you verify the history of the piece before you make your purchase.
Artificially distressed pieces, however, are more affordable and you still get the same rustic look in your bedroom.You will still need to take caution so that you do not get a man-made distressed item at the price of antiques. In order to avoid this, you should shop for distressed furniture from the right places.
Where to Purchase Distressed Bedroom Items
Start from the Internet to find either type of distressed furnishings.You will encounter the words “shabby chic” when looking for distressed items, which basically refers to artificially distressed items painted white or cream.Painted distressed pieces do add a very classic French look to your bedroom, so do consider them when doing your shopping.
After your initial Internet search, you should go to your local furniture store to buy your distressed pieces. At the store you have the chance to examine the distressed bedroom items for yourself, and if you prefer, you can order for your own unique pieces to be made for you. When shopping, you should look at the actual size of the furniture to fit in your bedroom, the details in the painting, and other accessories to match your choice of distressed bed. If you are buying your distressed pieces from an antiques store, consider these factors very carefully.
Once you buy your distressed bedroom furniture, you now need to know how to arrange them in your bedroom and what kind of bedding go well with the pieces. The distressed bed is often the main focus in the bedroom, with the rest of the distressed pieces surrounding it.
You can then use pastel-colored bedding if you have the shabby chic distressed furniture, or go with rich colors like red, deep brown and dark green for brown or black rustic furniture.Remember that there is always room for creativity with distressed furniture, so use these pointers to redecorate your bedroom with the perfect classic pieces.

Ideal Bedroom Furniture For Different Kinds Of Bedroom

o you want to have your every own signature styled bedroom? Of course you do. Ideas for bedroom design vary depending on the age of the person who will be using the room. Other important things to consider are your budget and preference of design and style. Bedroom furniture can shape your bedroom be it traditional or contemporary. Here are some bedroom plans for teenagers, kids and master bedroom.

For kids’ bedroom furniture plans, a bunk bed is the most essential element of the bedroom. Bunk beds are available in different designs and sizes in the market. To make space for kids to play, bunk beds can be pushed inside. For an alternate option, loft beds are also great addition to the room. Other kids’ bedroom essentials are wardrobe with a mirror and a desk or a writing table. It is recommended to have minimal bedroom furniture and more space since kids are usually playful in this stage.

For a teenager’s bedroom, since they are into music, sports and movies, it is wise to design the bedroom furniture to a certain theme. For girls, a floral theme with vibrant colors of pink and orange is recommended. Boys will prefer a theme with sports or music with black, blue or red colors. This is the time of their lives to become fashion conscious, so it is suggested to have a lot of space for shoes, clothes, books and even sports equipment. They will also love it if you put in some posters of their favorite rock star of sports icon.

Decorating the master bedroom is perhaps the easiest to do since you know what exactly want to do with it. For a classic and elegant look, opt for solid wooden bedroom furniture. Add a touch of rich traditional ambiance by placing furniture with French style and design.

For a more contemporary look, choose furniture that has metal accents and less wood elements. Furniture with powder coated metals, fiberglass, chrome, glass and plastic provides modern hint to the master bedroom. With these types of contemporary furniture, you can also choose the perfect color to match the hue of the room.

Platform Bed Furniture – How to Create a Modern and Stylish Room

If the space in your apartment bedroom is somewhat limited then it is worth thinking about investing in good quality platform bed furniture set. Not only do these types of sets provide you with a comfortable space to sleep each night but also they are designed to help free up floor space beneath as they are raised several feet of the ground. So this space can then be used in a variety of different ways not only to use as a storage area but even as a place for you to sit and relax.

Another thing that you will notice about these beds that makes them different from conventional ones is that the base of them is designed to only accommodate a mattress. The actual base of these types of beds will either consist of a solid panel or wooden slats. As these don’t need to use box springs to provide support for the mattress they will tend to cost quite a bit less to purchase than traditional ones.

However before you do decide to purchase one of these types of beds for your home there are a number of things that you should know. Below we take a look at just what some of these are, and will then help you to decide which of the many platform bed furniture sets available is most suitable for your needs.

1. The first thing that you need to do is what design, color and material the sets are going to be made from. Which you choose will of course depend on who will be using the bed and the furniture and the decor of the room in which it is going to be placed. If for example you intend to put this bed and furniture in a child’s room then the more contemporary style sets should be considered that are made from either wood or metal.

However I would recommend the metal types as these not only tend to cost less than the wooden ones, but you will often find that they are far easier to maintain. Plus of course the selection of colors in which they come is far greater so finding one that your child likes will not prove difficult.

2. The next thing you of course need to decide is where you intend to buy these items from. Most people will generally visit their local furniture stores to purchase such items but it is worth considering purchasing what you want online.

As you will discover many of the stores online that sell furniture such as these can offer it at more competitive rates. The reason for this being that they are not faced with the same overhead costs that a traditional bricks and mortar store have. Also in many cases because you are purchasing such items as a complete package they will often agree to ship the goods to you completely free of charge. Whereas as your local store will often charge a fee even a small one to deliver the items to your home, this even includes platform bed furniture that comes in flat pack form.
