We recently took an extended shopping trip to the window dressing store, and spent most of the day trying to decide what we were going to buy to put into our new windows. We completed an addition to our home, and it opens up the kitchen and adds a whole new family room.

So there are a lot more windows that need to be covered and we want to get it right the first time so we don’t have to revisit this decision in the near future. In the end, I just insisted that we go with the best quality, the highest quality is always the best option and they are going to last longer than anything else.

For us and for our window sizes, that means Hunter Douglas blinds. There are many different versions of blinds, and many different brands and quality levels, but the Hunter Douglas ones are the best on the market, and they perfectly fit our requirements and needs for the new space.

It was apparent when we first walked in that not all of the blinds on sale or on offer were going to meet our needs. We wanted a specific style of blinds, one that would be really easy to use, very functional, and would also match the blinds in the rest of the house.

We didn’t need a perfect match, but we didn’t want something that was obviously different or that would clash in some way. We have Hunter Douglas blinds in other rooms in the house, and we love the easy way that they function, and we have never had a problem with them not working correctly for any reason.

We knew that this room would get a lot more use than our other rooms, especially since it is a part of the extended kitchen, and it really just flows from the kitchen into the new living room. There is a new deck outside the back doors, and so in going in and out of the house onto the deck, the doors will be opened and closed a lot, and the blinds are going to be raised and lowered quite a bit more than in other rooms where we already have the Hunter Douglas blinds.

So we needed to be sure we were getting really high quality so that it would last through all the increased wear and tear that is sure to happen in this space. After we looked through everything they had, and we tried out all the materials and all the samples, we decided to go with the updated version of the Hunter Douglas blinds that we already have in our home.

They are going to match, and they are more durable so they will handle all the additional use that we know is coming. And of course, they are going to match the rest of the room perfectly, and the rest of the house will almost match perfectly. The color is neutral, so it won’t be noticeable if they are off a bit.

In Your Home Technical Furniture and Bean Bag Chairs Good Thinking


Everybody wants to sit comfortable while watching TV, working on computer, chatting, etc. Don’t worry, technical furniture is about to hit the market with computers as well as plasma TVs. Just think of a chair with which a high definition flat touch screen is attached and you sitting at it using the touch screen to download movies for night and chatting with friends.

In future, this type of furniture is going to becoming an important part of our life.

You must be thinking that all this is only possible in a sci-fi movie, but your thinking is wrong. This technical chair is going to hit the market very soon and you will be able to entertain yourself just in one screen and one chair.

Think of it, you ordered a pizza online and after 20 minutes the delivery boy is at your door and you are looking at him on the touch screen of your chair. Amazing furniture, you will get to know who is at door without even moving from your place.

When my boyfriend and I were brainstorming on new furniture options for our tiny, tiny living room, we couldn’t agree on much.

But one thing that was a unanimous YES!, was a bean bag chair. Two to be exact. We both had bean bag chairs in our rooms growing up, and remember them fondly. I had a bright yellow one and loved curling up like a cat and taking a snooze on it when I probably should have been doing my homework.

He and his brother had two, and they became their Nintendo chairs: two amorphous blobs that molded to their shapes after hours of stationery game-play. Beanbag chairs may seem like a corny relic of the ’70 and ’80, but with online stores like Love Sac and Beanbag Chair Outlet, the once outdated design gets a new, cooler, lease on life.

I can’t wait to sink into my new bean bag chair with a book, and drift off to dreamland…
