Pillow Talk: Top Tips For Buying A New Bed

Image source   Here’s a little fact for you: most people don’t replace their beds for fifteen years. That’s the average. It’s like they miss-read the bumper sticker on a car way back in 2003 and started believing that a bed is for life, not just for Christmas. Unfortunately, though, this isn’t the case. In fact, most beds can deteriorate as much as 70% from their straight-out-of-the-plastic-wrap state in just a decade. This isn’t because they’re cheap either.

Creating A Trendy And Timeless Kid’s Bedroom

Image source   For the beginner, designing a kid’s bedroom is easier than reciting the alphabet.
