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.

When it comes to interior decorating and design, your choice in styles of light fixtures plays a very important role. You can make your room look brighter by adding fixtures in plenty or you can make it more warm and cozy with the help of softer lighting. The light fixture that you choose can complement and enhance your decor, or actually work against it. It can be affixed in the ceiling, on the walls, under the cabinets and even on the floor. When you are designing your room, you should first decide how much light you would like for the room to have. You also need to realize that each room will require a different amount of lighting. Also, when you’re selecting light fixtures to add to a room in your home, you should consider the rest of the furniture or decoration in the room. For instance, if you have antique piece in a room, a light fixture that reflects the same type of style is the best.

Dining Room and Kitchen:

Use bright light in your kitchen, because it can provide optimal conditions for cooking, on the contrary use less light in the dining room to create comfortable, relaxed setting for conversation. Brighten your kitchen with pendant lights over the eating area or an island. A colored pendant light fixture can compliment your room’s decor by shining either bright white, or casting an elegant colored glow. Consider using a Pot Rack, because it doubles as a ceiling lamp and a storage area. Chandelier in your dining room will add instant drama and brilliance. Choose from a wide variety of styles, from traditional crystal and wrought iron to modern, colored glass versions.

Living Room and Foyer:

If you want to add elegance of your living space, a chandelier is the perfect accessory. For example, crystal chandeliers are spectacular, and add an inexplicable air of beauty to your living space. Also, you can brighten a busy living room with overhead recessed can lighting. A floor or table lamp will illuminate dark corners and wall sconces can accent a fireplace and other focal points. Chandeliers, also, are the timeless choice for foyer lighting. If your foyer ceiling isn’t quite high enough for a hanging fixture, consider a semi-flush mount. Semi-flush lights offer a more widespread illumination than flush lights, and are available in highly upscale styles.

Bedroom Lightning:

Bedroom light fixtures include styles such as wall spotlights and lamps, sconces, ceiling fixtures, and floor lamps. By using specific colors you can greatly enhance the overall look of your room and compliment your bedroom decor. When choosing a light fixture for the bedroom, make sure that you have adequate lighting for tasks such as reading, yet you also make sure that you have the capabilities of producing dim light for sleeping or setting a romantic environment.

Bathroom Lights:

Use overhead vanity light combined with side sconces to provide functional lighting for grooming. This combination allows right amount of light into the face and eliminates facial shadows. Wall sconces have very decorative glass covers and they provide a bright and stylish element in the walls.

You can find ideas for replacing or adding light fixtures to every room in your home at your local home improvement or furniture stores, and there are many online resources from which you can order a variety of light fixtures.
