Decorative Room Dividers – Room dividers and decorative divider screens have been around for years. In fact, room dividers have been in use for thousands of years, serving both a utilitarian and decorative purpose. Room and divider screens can be used to accent your interior decor or create a private space. Decorative room dividers can be found in many different materials and in themes ranging from Oriental to contemporary.
Some dividers and divider screens are very collectible and there is an active market in antique room dividers and folding screens. China and Japan are well known sources of rare and beautiful examples of screens that date back hundreds if not thousands of years.
Country style platform beds – The structure of these beds is already an pro in itself. Without a requirement for a box spring, which can be so expensive, you can picture how much savings that would translate to. Just the bare ease of a nice and warm mattress will be enough to give you a long, sumptuous sleep. And that comes without a back injury in the morning when you wake up.
You’ll be grateful for this when you contrast a typical bed with a box spring to a platform bed with only its mattress. The distinctive bed will need that box spring as foundation but a country style platform bed will only need itself for the reason that it’s already built and made to be stable on its own.
