Everyone ever thought about how to properly arrange furniture in the kitchen. In new homes with modern apartments there are no problems with the arrangement of kitchen sets. However, in old buildings where two people can hardly fit in the kitchen, the situation forces the furniture issue to be solved as effectively as possible with small possibilities.
A good solution to the problem will be the use of built-in furniture and appliances in the interior.
It will greatly facilitate its choice, measuring the width of the niche along the longest wall, in order to order the headset according to the exact dimensions. Think about the technique that you will need: a stove, a dishwasher, a hood, a microwave, a blender, etc. Depending on this, plan free space.
It is important that near the stove there are the most necessary items, which means that the boxes for the instruments must be near. A microwave oven should be placed on a shelf (something you should also think about before ordering a headset), or attach it with brackets to the wall. The same goes for the blender, multivark - place them in special places, not on the working surfaces. Use the space countertops profitable!
We will try to suggest how to arrange kitchen furniture most effectively.
Of course, the kitchen should be primarily convenient for cooking. Certainly there should be: a zone for preparation of products, which means a sufficient place for cutting vegetables, fruits or meat; Zone for washing dishes and appliances; Cooking area; A dining group.
If you have a wide window sill, then it can be used as a shelf for the stand of devices, or extend it with a countertop and use it for cutting food.


The chest of drawers is not an obligatory part of the interior, but still adds practicality to the room. In the last century, the chest reflected the status of the owner, this element of decor was considered a sign of wealth. Now it has become more habitual attribute of our life, and still as popular.

Modern technologies do not cease to surprise us, so not so long ago there were new items in the market of furniture goods: chests with an automatic mechanism of TV production. When the control panel is pressed from the chest of the chest, the TV panel is extended. This is a phenomenal invention for those who do not like "extra" items in their room.

Modern chest of drawers in the interior of the bedroom

The chest of drawers in the bedroom is a separate story. They are very often needed to store sleeping bags, pillows and blankets. That is why, most often, large size and large-sized capacious bottom boxes.
Often interior designers use a combination of dresser and mirror. It's pretty practical, especially if the girl lives in the room. This combination can completely replace the dressing table. And the numerous boxes will serve well, because they can put everything: from jewelry and jewelry, to a bulky blanket.
If you still decided to put such a dressing table in the room, do not forget about the color. The chest of drawers should look harmonious in a pair with a mirror, be in the same scale. We have in the catalog available chests and hallways at the price of the manufacturer.

In order to properly arrange the furniture does not need special knowledge. It is enough just to have a desire and taste. The arrangement depends on your preferences and imagination. The very first thing you need to decide on is the appointment of the room, who will live in it, what functional areas do you need?
Designers recommend to draw an approximate scheme of the interior, before making the apartment furnished. This method will help to estimate the amount of free space, sirentuet finding sockets, opening doors. You are not an artist, and do not have technical skills? Use conventional geometric shapes. For example, a square is a bed, a rectangle is a TV, etc. Even a child can cope with this task! The main advantage of this solution is convenience, it is much easier to draw figures than to move heavy furniture in a room.
Professionals use every detail in the interior. If you have non-standard convex walls, you can apply them when planning the zones in an apartment. Divide the room into a working and sleeping area. It is not necessary to order a specialist to know how to properly furnish an apartment.
One of the ways that a lot of experts in the field of interior uses is to find the point of the room from which the objects will be placed. For example, in the living room it can be a coffee table, in the bedroom there is a bed, in the nursery there is a desk. Accordingly, the main subject is symmetrically placed around the necessary items in the room. In a one-room apartment it is advisable to place furniture and divide it into several areas: a living room (upholstered furniture), a workplace, a bedroom. This can serve as a normal shelving.
Do you go to bed late, like to watch TV? An integral part will be a TV stand , which will serve as a television screen. It is logical to put such a cabinet opposite a soft sofa, it is necessary to take into account the turn of the head when watching TV, an uncomfortable position can cause a lot of trouble.
If you have a large number of clothes, and do not know how to rationally fold it, place the original built-in closet that will complement the interior with its design. Cabinets are advantageously placed along the wallless walls, and the best option is a large mirror on the doors, they will visually enlarge the room.
If you plan to force the living room area, be guided by one's own desires. Usually rooms with this function have only a soft group and a table. Here the arrangement does not matter, the main thing is convenience. Create a warm atmosphere of hospitality, coziness, and fun.
The simplest and easiest way to save space, and not to think about arranging furniture in an apartment is buying a bed with drawers and built-in tables. This option is suitable as best for a small area. In our catalog a large variety of soft beds for everyone.
Lighting the room also plays an important role. Do you read or watch TV shows in the evenings? It is necessary to take care of the table lamps, or to arrange the lighting directly above the place of your rest.
In the sleeping area, light devices should be available in the area of ​​the outstretched arm. Take care of your health!

So, let's sum up what is needed to properly arrange the furniture :
  1. 1. We make an approximate diagram of the surrounding interior in the room. We mark the doors, sockets, windows. We estimate free space.
  2. 2. Use every detail in your interior: convex walls for functional division into zones, corners for corner cabinets or shelves.
  3. 3. Divide the apartment into functional areas. Select the main objects in each relative, which you will arrange the furniture.
  4. 4. Think about what will be in the room, a minimum for the bedroom: a bed, a table for a TV, a bedside table; For the living room: upholstered furniture, coffee table; For a nursery: a cot, a computer table, a shelf for storing toys or exercise books. Place according to your scheme, not forgetting about convenience and considering the functionality of each item.
  5. 5. Lighting must cover all areas of its light.

The big mattress - aka My furniture store - case

The big mattress - aka My furniture store -
Based on our personal experience - we would not buy anything from the stores above!

To sum up:
1.       The Seller has provided misleading information to us (presenting wrong pictures on the website and promising that what we saw will be delivered however they deliver another product)
2.       The Seller is making deceive statements: the seller is saying that we didn’t specify that we need a model without extra legs however we were very specific about it from the very beginning
3.       Once Seller delivered wrong and faulty model we requested refund but seller refused money refund and refused return delivery at his own cost - this is against the law.

    On the NSW Fair Trading site  says that:

Who is responsible for returned goods?

When the consumer tells you they are returning the goods, the goods become your property. You are responsible for any loss or damage to the goods from this time.
The consumer must return the goods to you unless the cost of returning, removing or transporting is significant – for example, the size makes transportation costly.
If so, you must collect the goods at your own expense and within a reasonable time.
Examples of goods you would have to collect:
  • a 127 cm LCD TV
  • a bed
  • a swimming pool filter connected to a pool by fixed pipes

Case details: 

On 26/01/17 we ordered 'COLORADO (MODEL 21-18-2-1-14) TRIO TRIPLE BUNK BED' from The Big Mattress Australia
Address: Auburn Home Mega Mall, Level 2, 265

The model we ordered has 4 legs (as per design).

On 16/02/17 we received email from the seller "We would like to offer a same bunk that is currently in stock as per Craig" - Tristan Carvajal <>

We replied to that message that we still need to have a model as per original design with 4 legs, comparison pictures were provided to the seller.

We've also made it very clear with the following statement "if you refer to another model (with extra legs - see sample from another website attached) then we don't want to proceed, please return money paid (order #199)"

The Seller had insured us that we will receive exactly what we ordered but under different product name 'DARWIN TRIO TRIPLE BUNK BED' so we continue waiting for the delivery.

On 25/02/17 we received our order but the bed what different.
The bed we received has 8 legs as per design and the package had 1 leg missing. We immediately reported this issue to the seller with request to provide the bed with 4 legs but he refuses the fact that we requested another bed. The seller has also refuses money refund.

The email we received from the Seller:
                Tristan - 25/2/17 - 1 X LEG MISSING - customer agreed to an exchange of bunk - therefore not able to refund - there was no specification of how many legs under the bunk that were or were not required - request for refund not approved - management -

We did not agree to exchange our order to another bunk with extra legs. In our response, we made that very clear that we need a bed as per original specs (with 4 legs). In addition, comparison pictures with explanation details were provided to the Seller.

On 16/02/17 we received another email from the Seller stated that "It will be the same as the one pictured from our website".

The picture from the website page has bunk bed model with 4 legs only. This model we received is completely different to what we ordered: because of the extra legs in the centre of the bed base the DARWIN model no storage space under the bed for bulk items. Extra storage space was the key reason to choose COLORADO model with 4 legs only.

"The big mattress" - aka "My furniture store" - feedback

Customer review – please read in full here

What is mentioned below is exactly what we experienced with these companies: "The big mattress" - / "My furniture store" -
Other customers probably might have better service, but we don't know it...
The good part: prices are OK.... sort of 'everything is always on sale'... we would recommend to compare with other stores - you wouldn't find much difference in between discounted price from and normal price from other stores

The bad part -
1. Extremely bad with delivery time-frames. in our case it took about 1 month. While in other store you will get, things ordered and delivered within few days, 'the big mattress' might deliver in a month(s). If you OK to wait, then it might be minor issue...
2. When we reported about the issues we received a phone call from the store - the guy who was calling us was very rude and shameless. He didn't want to listen anything just replied that we will not get anything from what we received.
3. 'The Big Mattress' online store was cheating on us, they were making foolish statements and refused to admit anything they did wrong to us.

Personal opinion: we would never ever buy anything from these online shops.
