Bar and Wine Cabinets

Far from being just ornamental furnishings, bar and wine cabinets are very practical when it comes to entertaining a large group of friends. No more would you have to serve drinks from a counter top or have to weave your way in and out of guests to get more glasses out of the kitchen cupboards. With bar and wine cabinets, everything is conveniently and beautifully organized right at your fingertips.

And bar wine and cabinets add a sense of sophistication and style that cannot be accomplished by other types of furnishings. Whether your home’s décor is formal, country or modern, there is a wine or bar cabinet that will perfectly complement your individual space, personality and sense of style.

Take for instance the Bealle Steet Oval bar and wine cabinet by Powell. This wine cabinet is breathtaking and is vintage-inspired with sophisticated, tropical Dutch West Indies detailing framed in woven rattan with faux leather accents crafted in select hardwoods covered a lightly distressed two tone “Bahama” finish. This luxurious wine cabinet features includes storage for 12 bottles, 2 drawers, 2 doors, 2 adjustable shelves and 4 unique rattan galleried storage shelves on either end.

If you want a lot of style from a bar cabinet but do not have a great deal of space to devote to one, perhaps the Mardi Gras bar and wine cabinet would be perfect for our space. This beverage cabinet is both elegant and functional and features beautiful hand painting over Black Analine finish. The top flips open and slides to a center position for twice the serving surface. Doors with Antique Pewter handles open to reveal enough storage space for up to 22 bottles and 14 glasses. This bar and wine cabinet also features drawers for added storage and keeps everything snugly nestled inside when not in use.

If you prefer something a little more casual, maybe you would enjoy the multi-functional Casual Bar Cabinet with Marble Top. This cabinet doubles as a kitchen cart and features a medium distressed oak finish with a green marble surface, two towel racks, a center drawer, a 4-bottle wine rack and two shelves for accessories or cookbooks.

Teak Furniture is Better Choice

This luxuriant hardwood has abilities to withstand the rigors of adverse climates. It is resistant to water, weather and warping, allowing it to withstand season after season of use. Because of its rich quality and ability to weather attractively, teak furniture is not only a sound investment; it is a symbol of luxury and affluence.

There are several leading furniture manufacturers known for exceptional craftsmanship of this furniture. One of the largest and most renowned is Kingsley-Bate. Kingsley-Bate was the first American company to use Javanese in the manufacture of its furniture. They, like many of their industry counterparts, use precise mortise and tenon joinery in the construction of their teak furniture. The quality material and sheer craftsmanship, provides customers with teak furniture of exceptional style and durability.

Teak furniture is offered in a wide variety of classic pieces as well as custom designs by skilled wood carvers. You can enjoy a teak bench with a carved hummingbird motif or a teak bench that has a simple but elegant design. Whatever you are looking for, a teak Adirondack chair, teak bench, teak chair or teak table, you will not be disappointed.

Over time, teak will age to a soft gray patina color. The original color of your teak furniture may be maintained with a seasonal application of a teak oil or teak protector.
Small cracks may appear on the surface of the wood over time. This is a natural part of the aging process and in no way harms the integrity of your teak furniture. Outside of cleaning with soap and water as needed, teak is virtually low maintenance.

Furniture Bench

Going back to the kid’s room, if you have a little girl then you could choose from a lovely white furniture bench with claw feet, beautiful molding, a crown designed top, and sloped skirt. With a pink or purple cushion seat on top, your little girl would love having this bench to call her own. Perhaps she would want something with a little more character such as the “Dora the Explorer” furniture bench. With this, there is a colorful painted scene that brings life to your child’s room, allowing her imagination to run free.

For a little boy’s room, you will find a number of creative furniture benches that are replicas of ambulances, fire trucks, race cars, and more. These come in a number of wood choices and are wonderfully handcrafted with colorful detailing. Most of these benches have a closing lid, great for keeping the room organized and neat. In addition, a furniture bench that looks just like daddy’s workbench is a perfect choice. You will find these with actual attached bags that hold toy tools!

For the adults, you have a huge selection of styles and uses. For instance, you could choose a beautiful furniture bench to keep by the back door that would hold all the dog’s supplies. These come in a number of sizes but a popular choice is one that measures 40 x 14 x 17.75 inches. Some of these include drawers that are great for brushes, nail clippers, leashes, and so on. Again, many of these have a cushioned seat, providing a place to sit while getting Fido ready for his walk.

Placing a bench at the foot of the bed for added storage is also something seen in many bedrooms. Because these are available is so many styles, you can find a bench that fits in perfectly with any décor. Many times, these benches will be made from oak or mahogany and may or may not be adorned with brass accents. Again, this type of furniture bench also has storage where extra throws, sheets, pillows, or blankets can be stored.

If you want just a simple bench for the telephone or display of fresh flowers, these too are available. The nice thing about this type of bench is that they are small so they fit well in any home and prices at around $30, anyone can afford one. The bottom line is to determine the best room and how a bench can provide you with additional seating, storage, and room appeal.

About Baby Nursery Furniture

Finding the right nursery furniture will be fun and exciting. You just need to know how to shop for furniture that will be right for you. When looking for a crib, you will want one that you will be able to place a sleeping baby in without needing to hassle with the sides of the crib. You will want a firm mattress and adjustable mattress heights for when your baby gets older and may try to crawl out of the crib. Look for durability. How easy does the crib shake? You want your crib to last at least until your new little one is ready for a toddler bed. As he gets older he will stand and shaking the crib and trying his best to learn to climb out of it.

You may decide on a 3 n 1 crib for your nursery furniture choice. These are very unique cribs that can be converted from a crib into a toddler bed and then into a day bed or full size bed. These cribs are designed to last. Conversion is usually pretty simple and the hardware and all needed parts are included for each bed when you purchase the crib.

The changing table is one furniture item you are sure to enjoy in the line of nursery furniture. It is great to place your infant on a comfortable table with all the necessary items close at hand. Most changing tables have shelves under where you can keep everything you need for changing your little one. I prefer stationary changing tables, not one with wheels unless you can lock them in place.

You will be able to find matching dressers or chests in the nursery furniture line for holding all the new baby clothing that you received during your baby shower. The chest should have enough drawers for fitting all the babies clothing and accessories nicely. Check for easy glide and for durability. Baby clothing can usually snare very easily and if the drawers inside are rough you can snag the outfit causing them to look tattered.
