Utilize Your Space

Are you looking for ideas for that unclaimed space at the end of your Queen or King sized bed? Here are some ideas for adding a useful piece, whether for function or for beauty:

? Small Writing Desk : A nice place to sit and open your mail, make up a shopping list or send a card. Add a warm cup of tea and enjoy the quiet and comfort of your bedroom.

? Pair of Chairs: Or if you need a quiet place to sit and read in your bedroom, try placing a pair of small upholstered armchairs with an end table in between them, to hold eyeglasses and books at the end of your bed. Add a soft chenille throw over the chairs for cool nights and curl up for enjoying that great novel.

? Storage Bench: Yes, a perfect place to hold all those extra blankets and pillows, but also a great place to sit and take off your shoes; or for holding a decorative tray for your morning cup of coffee and breakfast goodies.
