Many are unaware that since most furniture are made from synthetic materials, they have the greatest potential to actually harm both the body and the environment. Plastics, metals and some hardwood pieces often contain chemicals that help preserve and keep the integrity of the furniture. Not doing this would jeopardize the business, and so furniture manufacturers incorporate preservative materials to their products to increase their longevity in warehouses and stores. For example, some solid wood furniture is imbibed with pesticide and/or fungicides that kill insects or molds that may invade and destroy the furniture. Some have preservatives like Formaldehyde as for plastic or steel fixtures, especially those with color, their paints may contain lead. All these pose a significant health risk to the users. Some disintegrate and turn into vapour, but this ultimately causes harm too. Inhaling the fumes from chemicals in the furniture will cause disorders and disease. What’s more is that these chemicals do not break down easily. They stay with your solid wood furniture until the day you dispose of them. When you dispose of them, the environment then takes the damages. The chemicals harm and pollute the environment
But even if you are too busy for that, you should at least make it a nice place to be in - even busy people spend more time in the bedroom than in any other room in the average home. So before jumping at all that great bedroom furniture you see in the shopping malls or online, take a little time to think of how to design a bedroom that you will feel comfortable in.
However, don’t forget room for the bedding and the clutter! Underbed baskets or storage drawers are practically essential for the modern bedroom, and an ottoman is also handy for incidental storage. What about your TV? If you like TV in bed, then you can purchase a handy flat-screen TV stand that rises up at the bottom of your bed using a remote control handset. If you prefer the main lights on at night then you can also get remote control infrared switches to operate your regular light bulbs - they also offer dimmer functionality!
Another note to make when shopping for a bedroom suite is the scale of furniture you need. Make sure you write down the measurements of the pieces you need to fill your bedroom. A great bedroom suite can potentially look horrible in a space that is either too small or too large in comparison. Keep in mind the scale of the furniture you need and make a purchase based on that.
