One needs a makeup organizer to ensure makeup’s longevity, safety and location.

Are you, like this author, one who reaches for her cheek blush and brush, only to find the blush cake cracked and in little pieces and the quality sable luxury cosmetic brush, looking more like an old toothbrush with strands sticking out to all sides? And the search for the eyeliner pencil sharpener is on, as you attempt applying it’s blunt edge. However, the seeking is even more difficult because of all the partially dirty cotton swabs and cotton balls that litter the place. You decide to go without eyeshadow, when you try to put on smooth matching coats of eyeshadow, whose cakes have turned into un”uniform gravel pits.

A makeup organizer is a very simple idea yet genious at the same time. Just imagine, reaching for your eyelash curler, and actually finding it … untangled … the first time. Lipsticks are all together, making pulling one out a breeze. Tissues and cotton are located in one place, neat and clean. Pans, like blush and shadow, stack, keeping their contents whole. The opportunity costs of you having that makeup count just as much as the makeup itself. You searched hard for your makeup, seeking out the correct colors, types, prices and brands. It’s safekeeping and locating it easily are of daily importance. You gave up doing other things to shop for it, so you want your makeup to last, as well. Proper makeup storage is the solution to uncomplicate your daily life.

Graber or Hunter Douglas Window Treatments?

Mickey | Home Furnishings | Sunday, February 20th, 2011

In the world of window furnishings, there are two distinct companies that are the pillars of modern age window treatments and both are competing to be the best one out there in the market. They are named Graber and Hunter-Douglasl the two are the most reliable and established companies with regards to window treatments. With these thoughts in mind, a question would definitely be brought up which one is better; Graber or Hunter Douglas? This question needs to be answered because the distributors are obliged to give an answer when consumers ask; they need to know if the product they are going to buy is worth every penny. The consumer needs to know what are the advantages, benefits and even the constraints that a product has because he is a paying customer and he is entitled to it. Graber vs Hunter Douglas: fight!

The Graber Company has been established 70 years ago and has become one of the top leading manufacturers of window furnishings in the USA. They offer a wide range of products such as soft fabric cellular shades, faux plantation shutters to wooden shades. They also provide customization of the shades you want; whatever you want they can do, from the color, texture to the shape they would try their best just to accommodate you needs. The company also takes pride of being an advocate to the environment; from the manufacturing plant to your home they make sure that every step of the way doesn’t cause damage to the environment. The materials used are all natural or at least they minimize the synthetic material included, the way of manufacturing is also eco-friendly thus limiting hazardous waste, their products also helps with energy efficiency for your home thus helping you reduce energy bills; inevitably saving you money in the future.

The Hunter-Douglas Company has been the market for 60 years and still is going strong, being reliable and trust-worthy the company, it has established itself as one of the leaders in the industry. They also offer a wide range of products but they are well known for their honeycomb shades. The design of it revolutionized the window treatment industry due to its energy efficiency features.  The company is well known for its products to be energy efficient. They help the environment by helping the household rely on natural energy more such as light and wind over manufactured energy in the process lessening the carbon emissions of your home. The company also takes pride in their lifetime warranty stamp on their products thus reassuring the consumers with what they bought is really worth their money.

We can never really answer the question since both companies have their advantages over the other. It all boils down to the consumer if what company suits his/her taste. In the end both companies can be a great asset for your home, truly a worthwhile investment for every home and homeowner.

Looking at White Writing Desks

Mickey | Home Furnishings | Saturday, February 19th, 2011

While most people prefer desks with that real wood grain and deep stain or finish to emphasize the benefits of a dark wood color, there are those people who do prefer painted furniture.  Because of this, there is a strong demand for both white writing desks and black writing desks, as well as those individuals who are also against painted furniture.  For wood or timber purists, the thought of having a painted office desk doesn’t really appeal to them at all, but if you are looking for a cheap piece of furniture for say your kids or for an outdoor work area, then you might take a look at white writing desks.

Good timber generally doesn’t get painted, so for something like a small writing desk for children, it would be made of a cheap wood like pine (a softwood that doesn’t bring much to the table as far as looking good or being sturdy for the long term) and that type of wood gets painted.  When you see a lot of small furniture that is good for kids’ rooms usually the painted stuff is from pine or a similar wood and for this reason because affordable writing desks for kids can be made from this material, and many kids will enjoy the colored paint more than the grain and tone of the wood.

White writing desks don’t have a lot of uses, they do find a very good niche as children’s furniture or older versions which are not in good shape can be used at out buildings such as a wood working shop, or any type of outdoor shop where some surface and storage area is needed but the situation will cause damage to new furniture, thus making new or fancy writing desks something that wouldn’t make any sense at all.

Futon Mattresses – Giving Diversity and Functionality

Mickey | Home Furnishings | Saturday, February 19th, 2011

If you want to maximize the area of a small space, then a futon is a great furniture choice. There is a range of futon mattresses to choose from, as well as covers and frames. So, one can readily pick out a design that will best fit the theme of his home or office. For those who want unique pieces, you can always contact a reputable futon supplier or futon company to customize a mattress, frame, or cover for you.

Futon mattresses are created by using materials, such as cotton, wool, polyester, foam and coiled spring, with the latter three as the synthetic components. The customary Japanese futon is filled with cotton batting, but the modern futons we usually see today are made by layering natural and synthetic materials in different densities and thickness; hence, providing consumers with varied levels of comfort. As for frames, there are bi-fold and tri-fold frames, with the former as the easier one to adjust because it only has two sections. Generally, bi-folds can be fitted with thick or thin mattresses, depending on one’s preference, while the tri-fold frame is normally set with a thinner mattress to make maneuvering the furniture easier. When it comes to covers, there are many colors, patterns and styles available; so, you can choose one that will best fit the aesthetic of your home or room without difficulty. If you are to use the futon more as a sofa than a bed, then it is best to opt for thicker and more durable materials, like vinyl, leather or suede. Cotton and linen are more apt for futon beds as these are more comfortable and softer on skin. If you have kids at home, go for a futon mattress cover that is spill-resistant or washable as children can be messy at times.

Apart from being a versatile furniture piece, one can also find many discounts and great deals on futon mattresses. Therefore, you won’t just be getting a functional piece, but also some wonderful, affordable and durable furniture.

Use Corner Sofas To Fill Unused Space

Mickey | Home Furnishings | Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Perhaps the hardest place to furnish in any room is the corner. A lot of people use a potted plant or a small mission table to fill these spaces but they still feel empty. These spaces are much easier to fill with the use of corner sofas. Adding some nice leather corner sofas to a room can really make it feel complete.

There are so many choices out there that sometimes finding the perfect corner sofa can be quite hard. On its own leather has many different types and grades, but if you add in the other fabrics, styles and colors the choice will appear to be endless. The good thing about this is that you are going to be able to find a style that is going to fit in with your home perfectly.

One point that is important to consider is who makes the sofa. Better manufacturers will of course use better materials and have skilled craftsmen designing and building their furniture. You are going to pay more for these sofas but they will last you a much longer time. If you need to save a bit of money you could opt for a cotton material sofa with a foam filling. These might not offer the same kind of support but they are less expensive.

Depending on the brand that you are looking to buy and if they offer free shipping you may be able to buy sofas online. If the sofas you are looking at are made from heavy oak and the company wont deliver for free then you will probably save money buy shopping locally. Pretty much every furniture store will have a selection of corner sofas these days, and if you buy locally you can try the sofa out and make sure that it is right for you before you buy.

Body Pillow Selection Guide

Mickey | Home Furnishings | Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

There are certain things to consider when choosing a body pillow and probably the most important one is what exactly you will be using it for. The original orthopedic use remains but there are other decorative uses and this may affect the type and quality of the pillow you buy.

If, for example, you just like the look of the pillows, their elongated shape and the fancy cases you can now buy to cover them, it is likely you won’t need one that is offering all the support elements that the well-made pillows do. You could opt for a cheaper polyester blend pillow and spend more on the case, in this situation.

If you have lost a sleeping partner recently, for whatever reason, you may find comfort in hugging a body pillow at night and filling up the bed with something that is almost as large as a human body. In this case you will probably want one that is soft and welcoming and you may choose a feather or down pillow.

Mother-to-be will be looking for specially-designed body pillows for pregnant women. These will be aimed at supporting the lady when she sleeps on her side, which is very useful in relieving some of the stresses and strains she will experience during her term. Whether at the start or nearing the need of her term, the doctor may advise side-sleeping to aid a night’s rest and to relieve some of the discomfort her extra weight will produce. In this case, it is the comfort and feel of the pillow that will be the most important factor, so you will need to look for a well-made one with good materials. The case can provide extra comfort if it uses a material like satin, or high thread-count cotton.

Pregnancy body pillows can also be used after the baby is born, as an inviting surface for the baby to be nursed on.
