There are many good reasons why adding a loft bed would be advantageous to the kid’s bedroom or a dorm room. A loft bed is a bunk bed without the bottom bunk and with open space underneath. The area under bed is open for a number of design possibilities, depending on the bedroom needs. With all toys, arts and crafts in kid’s room, it’s always good to find a piece of furniture that takes advantage of the space allowed in an efficient manner. The loft bed gives you more space underneath where you can put a desk to study, put a sofa to create a reading corner, or use it as storage space. Loft beds are the perfect space creator, which makes it especially popular in small rooms.

Computer Desk. One of the most popular loft bed designs is one that incorporates a computer desk. The space beneath a “top” bunk is perfect for housing the computers that are so much a part of life for today’s teens. Loft bed with desk is great for kids who are sharing the space in a dorm or with a sibling. This way the additional space can be used for storing personal things.

 Storage. The most common loft bed designs incorporate a chest, bookshelves or dresser beneath the upper bunk to maximize storage capacity. Loft bed can help you clear out clutter, as it gives you more room to put everything else.

Sitting Space. Placing a nice chair underneath the upper bank bed will give your child a comfortable place to relax and read a book. Some loft beds are designed to fit even a TV along with the chair to create an ultimate playroom.

When shopping for loft bed, the first thing you need to consider is the child’s age. This will help you decide what kind of design of loft beds for kids you should be looking for. If your child is in pre-teens, then you can consider loft bed idea which has a suitable theme, and comes with a play area. There are castle, pirate ship and fire station themes, princess houses and much more. If you want to make loft bed to last a long time, then go for wooden loft beds for kids. However, if you want a more economic and light looking design of loft bed, then consider going for metal framed beds.

Ensconce yourself in a Tudor revival bedroom suitable for King Henry VIII or create a romantic bedroom suitable for queen Elisabeth.

In order to create a luxurious master bedroom you need to incorporate colors, fabrics and accents that are elegant and stylish. Almost everything, wall paint, furniture, lightning, curtains, and carpet has to be considered while planning a luxury bedroom décor. First, paint the walls in a color that gives you the feeling of luxury or use the wall paper with metallic accents and bold pattern. Buy a silk duvet cover, along with the luxury bedding. Mix and match silks, satins, suedes and velvets. Hang suede curtains on the window that coordinate with your bedding and place a velvet wing chair near it. Put antique area rug at the foot of your bed to give it a grand look. Replace lighting fixtures with luxurious fixtures, such as a chandelier hung over the bed. Choose table lighting that is both functional, yet elegant. Finally add furniture pieces that will bring luxury to your bedroom.

I recommend Bedroom Collections by AICO Furniture that has been known for its original, high quality and intricately designed home furnishings that make a grand statement in every home it rests in.

The opulent and posh Grande Aristocrat Collection brings the influence of European antiques to life with traditional carvings, detailed looping, harlequin marble, and a subtle light café latte finish called Charming Cashmere. The quality and attention to detail is masterfully evidenced throughout the collection, which features a stately poster bed, complete with a 3D loop on the headboard, as well as blown glass accents that are encased in a metal frame on each post. Soft curves, blown glass, and silver and gold tipping are harmoniously tied together with decorative hardware, highlighting the design, detail, and style that are synonymous with Michael Amini® Original Furniture Designs by AICO®, which beautifully connect form, with function, while drawing influence from classic European architecture.

 The Palais Royale Collection is reminiscent of the elaborate detailing of the classic French Rococo styling with its intricate veneer work, undulating curves and exuberant floral embellishments. French Rococo came to creation during the late 17th and late 18th centuries, with the word originating from a combination of the French word “rocaille,” or shell, and the Italian “barocco,” or Baroque style. It is most well known for its use of asymmetrical compositions, undulating lines, and S-curves. Rococo furniture took on a role of comfort and versatility, and Palais Royale follows the example. The magnificent mansion bed boasts a unique pillowed wood design that beckons a closer look. Like its predecessors, this Rococo styling contains lighter elements, with plenty of curves, and natural, intricate patterns. It is scaled and proportioned to suit any home with impressive elegance, and is finished in a wonderful Rococo Cognac.

 The influence of French regal comes to life with unique wing shaped headboards and footboards, and scallop shaped pieces throughout the Lavelle Collection. A classic French look, with a chic twist depicting a hip, couture feel; Lavelle is finished in a white finish, and is adorned with a glazed metallic tipping that highlights the traditional carvings.

The look and feel of Old World Spain have been beautifully captured in Villa Valencia Collection. Beautifully crafted from Birch solids with Cherry, Pecan, and Elm Burl veneers, the distinctive marquetry and intricate embellishments compliment a classic chestnut finish. Uniquely twisted and shaped marble pilasters with carved wooden leaves wrapping around adorn some of the pieces. Villa Valencia® draws its inspirations from the city of Valencia, in Spain. The name itself comes from the Latin name of the city, Valentia, which means “strength,” and “vigor.” As it sits in the center of the Spanish Mediterranean coastline, Valencia overlooks the Gulf of Valencia, and is backed by mountains and rolling plains, creating a breathtaking environment. This area has seen numerous historical events, and as such, its character has continually developed.

 By using Bedroom Collections by Michael Amini you can create a luxury master bedroom that will be your favorite room in the house.

Psychologists highly recommend changing the furniture every once in a while in order to brighten up and refresh the atmosphere we create in our home.  If you are planning to refurnish your home and update it with the current style, you should know current trends in furniture industry. When it comes to furniture, the trend doesn’t change as often like in the way clothes or jewels changes. Below is a selection of the main furniture trends for 2011

Eco-Friendly Furniture
Furniture manufacturers are producing more and more environmentally friendly furniture by using reusable materials in their designs. Furniture made from recycled or reclaimed woods has an exotic and unique appeal and brings the green vision to your home. If you are buying new furniture, look for wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). That’s an assurance that it came from forestry operations that meet strong environmental, social, and economic performance standards. Bamboo is considered one of the greenest materials because it’s fast growing and doesn’t require pesticides. Other eco-friendly options include metal and glass.

Metal and Glass
Metallic finishes have been popular for a few years as well as this year. Gold and copper along with silver are not just used on casegoods, but also in textiles as well as rugs. Metal is used for chairs, tables, lamp bases as well as screens and other accessories. Glass can be found in all its different furniture pieces from antique and vintage looks to modern or retro. Coffee tables have taken a turn for the modern and can be found in one sheet of 12mm thick glass moulded to create numerous cool and contemporary designs.

Mirrored Furniture
Mirrored furniture is becoming increasingly popular this year. Mirrored furniture can give a most elegant, sophisticated, and exquisite look to the home. It brightens the look of your home with beautiful, delicate and intricate detail. One of the advantages of mirrored furniture is that the mirror itself has the ability to brighten up a home and make it look bigger than it really is. The reflection that the mirror gives is what adds the illusion that there is extra space in a room.

Functional Furniture
Besides being beautiful, furniture pieces are also appealing due to their functional quality. In the last few years, as people have become increasingly reliant on high tech gadgetry, manufacturers have begun making furniture that addresses those needs. Many entertainment centers designed with docking stations, many bedroom pieces have pull-out shelves, outlets and USB ports for charging laptops, iPods and phones. Many beds designs feature storage drawers which are very useful to store toys, books, clothes or anything that clutters up rooms.

Retro Style Furniture
The styles that echo the past decades are still on the top of furniture design trends. Therefore retro just can’t be neglected as one of the most popular trends. Retro furniture still looks fantastic in a modern home.

No matter what look and feel you want to create within your home there is something on offer these days to suit everyone and anything.
