The benefits of sleeping on an adjustable mattress

Are you riddled with aches and pains when you roll out of bed in the morning? For many people, a sore back and stiff neck are as much a part of their daily routine as that first cup of coffee. It’s easy to blame the pain on stress or age, but the real issue may lie with the mattress itself.

Instead of confronting a sub-par sleeping arrangement with a cohort of pillows and a new set of high thread count sheets, lay the foundation for a good night’s sleep by choosing a quality mattress. Home Zone Furniture offers a number of different mattress types to fit a wide variety of people.

In general, the best mattress is one that keeps your body in complete alignment from head to heels. Since everyone’s mattress needs are different depending on their body type, weight and a host of other variables, be sure to try all types of mattresses, from memory foam to innerspring and even adjustable mattresses.

Personally, I love adjustable mattresses and the many health benefits they offer. First and foremost, an adjustable mattress allows for ergonomically correct positioning of the body. Unlike traditional mattresses, adjustable mattresses cater specifically to the natural curvature of your spine, spreading the weight out evenly and adjusting to your changing needs over time.

By supporting the various pressure points throughout your body, an adjustable mattress can promote both a healthy posture and proper circulation. People with heart problems, breathing trouble and swollen legs and feet will appreciate the effects of an adjustable mattress, but everyone can benefit in some way from customizable support.

If you’re tired of an achy lower back being a regular part of your day, consider switching over to one of our many comfortable mattresses. Sweet dreams may be just within reach!

Finding the right furniture to fit your home’s size

When you’re decorating a home, there are a number of things to keep in mind. What style will your home be? Which color scheme will you choose? Which pieces of furniture will fit your lifestyle?

To me, one of the most essential things to consider is whether or not your furniture is proportional to the spaces you’re decorating. So whether you’re cozy in a studio apartment or living large in a multi-bedroom home, employ the right combination of size, color and style to get the most our of your living spaces.

For a large space…

In a living space with large proportions, you’re dealing with plentiful square footage, high ceilings and big windows. To fill the space and complement the grandiose quality of your room, you’ll need equally large furniture with presence.

For rooms like this, I suggest decorating with a living room collection like the Delta Collection, which features multiple pieces that go together seamlessly. Once you’ve chosen the right collection for you, add a coffee table, end tables and maybe even an entertainment center. If you’re faced with decorating a large space, go with darker colors to help visually fill the space, and choose warm textures like leather to make a drafty space feel cozy.

For a small space…

If your space is limited, on the other hand, you’ll want to maximize the room you have with small furniture. Choose furniture that’s not only small in stature, but also delicate in style and light in color. These three variables together will create the illusion of lightness, making your room appear larger.

For a small space, I like pieces from the Ben Collection. A couch might overpower the dimensions of the space, but with a cream-colored loveseat and matching chairs, you can easily construct a proportional arrangement. If the Ben Collection isn’t your style, look for other neutral, light-colored pieces with visible legs. Whether you’re dealing with a couch or a chair, visible legs on a piece of furniture creates the illusion that the room is larger.

For a studio apartment…

In a studio apartment, you’re faced with the challenge of creating several different living spaces from one large room. Sculpt a living room out of the studio by using long, linear couches to your advantage. Define your living room with a bold, structured couch, then add a rug, a coffee table and a few additional chairs to really set the scene.

As you choose your couch, be mindful of the other colors you’re using in your studio. I like the Grant Sofa for a studio apartment because it makes a statement and has a low, tufted back. Since a studio apartment doesn’t have the luxury of doors, make sure that the colors are consistent throughout so it looks well-coordinated at a glance.

For a strange configuration…

Everyone has had that oddly shaped apartment or living room that’s nearly impossible to decorate. In these instances, the best thing you can do is measure the room then play around with different combinations of couches, chairs, ottomans and the like. What might seem like a plausible arrangement in your head may turn out to be awkward in person.

My advice for these situations is to stick with smaller-scale furniture so it’s easier to adjust if you change your mind. The Toronto Sea Loveseat is a stylish, versatile addition to any living space. The pop of color is the perfect accent in a room that needs a clear visual anchor.
