Moving into a new place is both exciting and challenging. When I started thinking about relocating and starting fresh with my family, the first challenge that popped into my head was furnishing. However, I was determined to design my home in a simpler way than ever before. That is when I discovered Scandinavian design and all the principles that come with it. Simplicity, minimalism and function are at the core of this style which has become one of the most popular choices all around the world. Fortunately, I did follow it and learned firsthand how great it looks and how functional it really is, so, let me to walk you through a few room designs that will surely get you inspired. Let’s begin!
A good night’s sleep is essential for being energized and well-rested, but sometimes even if you do sleep the recommended 7-9 hours, you might not wake up refreshed and at your best. Unfortunately, I’m talking from personal experience here. A couple of months ago, I was waking up more and more tired every morning because my husband was snoring all night long and I was frequently waking up during the night. He had tried different solutions and snoring devices but unfortunately, nothing helped.
Today’s society brings people, chairs and desks closer together than ever before. Most people spend at least 8 hours at work, strapped to their chair. So, it is only natural that each worker should share a good working relationship with his/her chair. That being said, one great way for the employees to stay healthy and productive is to include ergonomic supplies in the form of chairs into the picture.
When it comes to arranging and rearranging our living room spaces, as the most frequented in a home both by homeowners and visitors, often we would like to have more say in the interior décor to be able to pull off that personalised look in the comfort we want.
Luckily, the variety of designer modular lounge provides exactly that, your share of LEGO fun in your very own living room. Who said LEGO is just for kids?! Also called sectional sofas, modular lounges available in different styles, from traditional to modern, provide a great deal of freedom with the way you arrange your seating.
When it comes to restaurant dining chairs, there’s an unlimited number of options to choose from. In terms of style, most of them can be divided into classic or modern, and simple or complex. As most restaurant owners already have a good idea of how they want their place to look like, settling for a particular style isn’t that difficult. What’s a lot more difficult though, is choosing seating that will make efficient use of the space in your venue.
Considering how chairs are the single most common element in a restaurant’s venue, they can literally overtake the entire space unless you come up with a good seating scheme. While it’s only normal that you’d want to seat as many guests as possible, overcrowding the venue with chairs can create a suffocating atmosphere. As a result, instead of fitting more guests, the packed space will drive them away.
So, how can you as a restaurant owner fit more seats without restricting freedom of movement? One good solution for that would be to use stackable dining chairs. Long and gone are the days when restaurants used cheap plastic folding chairs to save space. Unlike folding chairs, stackable dining chairs have a higher aesthetic value and come with all the features needed to keep guests comfortable. They can be made from a wide range of materials such as metal, plastic or wood, be upholstered and include a curved back and armrests which increase comfort.
In other words, stackable dining chairs can be as stylish and functional as traditional chairs, with the advantage of being easy to store away when not in use. When you don’t need them, a number of these chairs can be stacked vertically and still take up the space of only a single chair. This, of course, is very beneficial for restaurants as it allows them to increase their amount of free floor space and still have a stash of extra seats on disposal should there be an influx of guests, like for instance on weekend nights.
While it’s definitely convenient to have these chairs stacked on top of one another, are they actually easy to move? Most stacking chairs are meant to be portable and therefore are usually built from lightweight materials. As they weigh less than traditional chairs, they are a lot easier to move for staff. When closing time comes along, the staff can easily put up the chairs on the tables and properly clean and vacuum the floor.
If you are a person who enjoys the simple, but beautiful things in life, then you will surely appreciate the simplicity of the Scandinavian style in your living room. The very chic look that blends the past, modern and contemporary look originated in Northern Europe, in Finland, Sweeden and Norway. It attracted the attention of people all over the world due to its hygge decor, fine craftsmanship and the high dose of elegance it can bring to any home. And among the basic features of this style which are the clean lines, the spaciousness, the simple accents, the decorative details and the usage of as much natural light as possible, relying on wood as the main material emerges on top of the list.
Although not apparent, where you work has a great influence on the quality of your work. Yes, the work environment is more important than we give it credit. There’s a simple example we can use to explain it: how much work do you think you’d be capable of finishing when you find yourself surrounded by clutter in the office?
The answer: not much! Even if you do get to finish all the tasks, it would take you longer than finding yourself in an organised space. Not only this, but also your mood would be impacted. So now that we’ve established this importance, it’s time to talk about what can be done to make the office a productive environment. Where can one start if not from the choice of furniture for office?
The vast options don’t make it an easy purchase, however, you can’t go wrong by letting quality and functionality be your guide. Knowing the essence of ergonomics nowadays, you have to choose ergonomic furniture to ensure your employees’ health and well-being, having in mind aches and pains due to the sitting discomfort are the most likely to increase sick leaves.
Choosing ergonomics of furniture for office means choosing ingenious workstations, whether sit stand, open plan, hot desks, height adjustable, corner, or executive desks, as for chairs, depending on the area of the office, choose according to the time they will be used for. Ergonomics don’t just rid you off discomfort, and relieve aches and pains, but also save you the bother of frequent adjusting chairs and desks, the concentration thieves.
There’s always the worry this kind of purchase is going to break your bank, yet some suppliers have convenient cost-efficient package deals, and moreover they can carry out space planning designing the ideal layout that would work best for your office. Along with the right pick of furniture pieces, in terms of comfort, you also have to think of the aspect of organisation.
As mentioned, clutter and office aren’t a good combination, so you have to ensure you have plenty of storage, meaning getting desks with plenty of drawers, learn the art of organising, separating paperwork in confidential and the rest, as well as count on the help of accessories that are designed to save space, like the handy monitor arms. It’s needless to say they are just as handy with letting you have control of the monitor’s adjustment, the way you can avoid straining your neck and eyes.
