    Apartment Living: How to Share Space with Your Roommate

    Last updated 4 days ago

    A bad roommate relationship can take a toll on your mental health. College students with roommate troubles tend to earn lower grades. For starters, good friends don't always make the best roommates; you might have a different sleeping schedule or sense of organization than your friend. Before becoming roommates, have a talk about ground rules for living together; trade lists of three or four personal peeves. Be patient with your roommate and pick arguments carefully. Don't nitpick over minor annoyances; you must make certain compromises. Give each other space, and be sure to schedule time to hang out with other friends. You can learn additional tips by watching this video.

    How Sleeping on the Wrong Mattress Can Impact Your Health

    Last updated 10 days ago

    Whether you're living in an apartment, a house, or a retirement community, one of the most important things you can have among your furnishings is the right kind of mattress. With a third of your life spent sleeping, you're mattress should provide sufficient support so you can sleep comfortably and wake rested. When you don't have the right mattress, you might find yourself facing some of the following problems.

    Increased Stress
    Many people agree that a medium-firm mattress is preferable to a softer one. Thanks to the added back support, many people who sleep on a medium-firm mattress feel less nervous, irritable, and headache-prone throughout their daily activities. On the other hand, an older, softer mattress can lead to increased stress due to weaker back support.

    Allergic Reactions
    The older the mattress, the likelier it is that it will get infested with dust mites, which feed off of dead skin cells. As they accumulate over time, skin cells become harder to clean from sheets, quilts, bed spreads, pillows, and mattresses. If you have asthma, or if you're one of the millions of Americans who are allergic to mites, this can become a serious problem. You could try to clean mites from your old, soft, dusty mattress, but it’s likely you’ll be more comfortable if you get a new, clean mattress.

    Troubled Sleep
    If you spend your nights tossing and turning, chances are you're not getting very good sleep. Oftentimes, when people are constantly repositioning themselves in their sleep, it's due to a weak, worn mattress that fails to provide the needed support. This can lead to sleep deprivation that may affect a person’s work, home, and social lives.

    When it's time for a new mattress, visit Wallbeds "n" More. Residents of college towns and retirement communities throughout California prefer our bedroom furnishings to make the most of the space in their homes. You can learn more by calling (888) 856-1192.

    Boosting the Appeal of Your Home Office

    Last updated 1 month ago

    The layout of your workspace can have a huge effect on your productivity. To improve your home office, try making it into a more personalized environment; this will make it seem less like a dull, uninspiring office. Minimize cording around your desk and use wireless technology as much as possible. De-clutter your desk by putting away all items that you don't use on a regular basis. Invest in a good, adjustable chair that will give your back the proper support. Don't use florescent lights—instead, use as much natural sunlight as possible. This video shares more workspace layout tips.

    For space-efficient office furnishings, come to Wallbeds "n" More. We have one of the best selections of Wallbed desks in California. Call us today at (888) 856-1192 to learn more.

    A Simple Guide to Hosting Overnight Houseguests

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Hosting a houseguest can seem somewhat daunting if you don't regularly have company at your home. However, if you make suitable accommodations, the whole experience can go smoothly. In addition to trying out the following tips, make sure you have a spare bed for your guest to sleep on. Remember, even if your guestroom is small, you can easily make it accommodate one or two people with a Murphy Wallbed.

    Essential Items
    Stock your house with essentials for your guests. Make sure that they'll have clean towels, fresh blankets, pillows, a clock, and suitable lighting for reading and working. To make them feel even more at home, provide them with toiletries and snacks.

    If any of your guests have special diets or food allergies, make note of that in advance. For instance, if one of your guests is a vegetarian, be sure to have some suitable snacks available, even if you're not vegetarian yourself. In case one of your guests has certain food allergies, separate things that he or she can and can't eat in your refrigerator and cabinets.

    Activity Preparation
    Inform your guests of any planned activities ahead of time so they can pack properly. Whether you've made plans for hiking, sailing, a wine country tour, or a visit to an artsy community, your guests will need to know so they can pack attire suited for formal, casual, or outdoors activity.

    Welcoming Tour
    When your guests arrive, give them a tour of your living room, bathroom, kitchen, and guest area, and inform them of any quirks in your house. For instance, if it takes a certain sleight of hand to unlock your door, or if the freezer never shuts unless you slam it tight, point those things out to your guests.

    At the many California locations of Wallbeds "n" More, we carry Murphy Wallbeds that are perfect for guestrooms. Our furnishings are optimal for houses and apartments of all sizes. Learn more about our inventory by calling (888) 856-1192.

    What Are Your Home Office Desk Options for Your Wallbed?

    Last updated 1 month ago

    If you need to combine a guest room with a home office, a Wallbed may be the perfect solution for you! A Wallbed paired with a desk option gives you both a sleeping space and a workspace. This setup is perfect for utilizing every bit of space in a small guest room or vacation cabin.

    If you only need a small work area, you can choose a simple, straight desk to go with your Wallbed. This option works well in tight spaces. If you have a little bit more room or intend for the desk to be used more often than the Wallbed, a larger, wedge-shaped desk may be appropriate. You can also add cabinets to store office supplies and get even more out of your Wallbed.

    Let Wallbeds “n” More in California help you find the perfect Wallbed and desk configuration for your sleeping, storage, and workspace needs. Our experts can give you options to make your home exactly what you want. Give us a call at (888) 856-1192 to learn how you can start transforming your home today.
