Uses and Design Tips for Your Nightstand

Lamp On Night

Nightstands are both a decorative and practical fixture. Using this one item you can even set the theme for the rest of the room. They are often used to hold clocks, lamps, books and more. These pieces can be designed in many different ways and can be antiques, modern or traditional. You can purchase a cheap used nightstand to place next to your bed. This makes it easy for you to reach whatever it is you use in the evenings or at night while you are in the bed.

You can then add a nice table lamp. The lamp you place on your nightstand should act as a nice décor accessory piece for the entire room. Make sure that you can reach the switch easily from your bed. The base of your lamp should sit squarely on your nightstand so that you do not knock the lamp over. When you buy a nightstand, look for one with enough space to also fit your alarm clock. This will make it easy for you to reach it and turn it off when your alarm goes off in the morning.

You can also decorate your nightstand with other pieces that will make it even more beautiful. Add some picture frames, a vase of fresh flowers, souvenirs and similar items to accessorize it. If you like to read, you can get a nightstand that has a shelf underneath so that you can keep your books there. A nightstand with a drawer is also a good idea. You can keep your spare change in there or your keys. At the end of the day, when you are emptying your pockets, you have a place to put everything while keeping the room tidy.

Finding a Hotel Desk for Your Study Room

Tidy Home Office

If you are thinking of setting up a study room for yourself or for your kids, one of the main pieces of furniture you will need in the room is a desk. Buying a new one can be costly, but you can get a nice hotel desk for sale that you can use in the room. There are certain things that you need to consider when you go looking for the perfect desk. Here are some tips to work with:

  • When you go looking for a hotel desk that you can use in the study room, consider the size of the desk in comparison to the size of the room that you will be putting it in. A desk that is too large will shrink the room giving it a cramped look and feel. You may want to find a desk that is small enough to put on one side and still leave room for a couch or in the case of a kids study room, a play area.

  • The other thing you need to consider is what it will be used for. You can find a nice one that is big enough to have a computer on one side and still leave room for writing or other activities on the top as well.

  • A good hotel desk should also come with drawers that you can use to put your stationary in. You may also look for some bookshelves in the same color or wood stain and use it alongside your new desk.

  • Another thing you should consider is the material used to make the desk. It may be made from laminates or real wood. Select what works for you and for the design theme you have in mind.


Decorating With Hotel Lamps

Time To Wake Up

  Lighting can be used to create various effects and moods in a room. Not only do we have overhead lights, but we also have spotlights, wall lights, ceiling lights and lamps among many others. In fact, when it comes to interiors, lighting is one of the most important factors. The lighting options available in the market today include ambient lighting which is also known as general lighting, task lighting that is used for a particular job such as studying or cooking and accent lighting used to bring some depth or drama to a room. You can buy floor hotel lamps for sale and place one next to your reading chair. The lampshade should come low with its bottom at the same level with your eyes. The floor lamp can also sit behind your TV or even right beside it if your TV is wall mounted, to provide a soft contrast and reduce the glare. Hotel lamps are affordable and you should consider having some on each end of your sofa on a side table as part of your décor. With proper lighting the atmosphere in your room will change completely. Hotel lamps can be a great option when it comes to alternative lighting options as well as for decoration. The lampshades are decorative making the lamp an accessory piece. You can place a lamp on shelves if you have some in your living room, or on tables. They also work really well in the hallway if you have a console table with some decorative pieces on it. However, you can also consider mounting wall lamps on the mantle if you have one. Place two of them on either side of the fireplace to balance it out. They will go a long way in casting away shadows.

Decorating with Beautiful Cheap Mirrors

Ornate mirror on the wall

Mirrors are used in interior design for several purposes. They can be used to increase light in a room because the light bounces off their reflective surface. They can also be used to make a space appear bigger and if it’s a decorative mirror, it can be used as a wall accessory to enhance the décor of the room. A good mirror does not have to cost you an arm and a leg. You can get cheap mirrors that will serve the same purpose. Here are some design tips for using mirrors:

  • If the room is very small you can create the impression of depth by using a mirror. You can get a large mirror and mount it on one wall or you can even prop it against the wall.

  • You can create a focal point in the room using mirrors. Get a nice lean, long mirror and simply lean it up against the wall. You can also place a mirror above the mantle as a decorative piece and create a focal point that way. If you find mirrors that are identical, you can make a wall arrangement that will create a focal wall as well.

  • If you have a narrow staircase or hallway a mirror goes a long way in opening up the space so that it seems wider.

Mirrors can be used in any room in the house. You can use them in the bedroom, kitchen, dining room, living room, and the bathroom. They bring both a decorative and functional aspect. There are simple ones and the more decorative, ornate kind. They are also framed in various materials including wood, metal, leather and more. Mirrors can start you on your journey of mirror décor. Experiment with different kinds of mirrors and different ideas to make your home more stunning.
