As the home of DVDs, video game consoles and other home electronics, your media storage needs to be plentiful. It should be able to house all your favorite movies and keep cords in check, as well as add a nice design element to your living room or home theater. Whether you need a small television stand, credenza or a full-blown home entertainment center with media towers, there are thousands of media storage options to choose from. The size of your media center is dictated by both the size of the space and your storage needs. If you are a movie buff with a large DVD collection, you will need a large home entertainment center with media storage towers and a tv console for DVD players and video game consoles. If you’re working with a small space, you might only have room for a TV cart.
Daybeds are used as beds as well as for lounging, reclining and seating in common rooms. Their frames can be made out of wood, metal or a combination of wood and metal. They are a cross between chaise longue, couch and a bed. Many of today’s daybeds employ a linkspring as the support system for the mattress. The linkspring is a rectangular metal frame (roughly the footprint of the mattress) with cross supports. A wire or polyester / nylon mesh held in place by a network of springs lies across the top of the linkspring. The linkspring design provides support and creates clearance underneath a daybed for storage. There are two categories of modern daybeds, indoor and outdoor. Daybeds can be hanging or stable, outdoor day beds usually have a roof-like structure to protect them from sunlight whereas indoor daybeds are simple.
A shelf is also known as a counter, ledge, mantel, or rack. Tables designed to be placed against a wall, possibly mounted, are known as console tables, and are similar to individual shelves. A shelf can be attached to a wall or other vertical surface, be suspended from a ceiling, be a part of a free-standing frame unit, or it can be part of a piece of furniture such as a cabinet, bookcase, entertainment center, some headboards, and so on. Usually two to six shelves make up a unit, each shelf being attached perpendicularly to the vertical or diagonal supports and positioned parallel one above the other. Free-standing shelves can be accessible from either one or both longer length sides. A shelf with a hidden internal bracket is termed a floating shelf.
The most common form of the computer desk is a variant of the ergonomic desk, which has an adjustable keyboard tray and sufficient desktop space for handwriting. Provisions for a monitor shelf and holes for routing cables are integrated in the design, making it easier to connect the computer components together. The typical armoire desk provides space for a keyboard, mouse, monitor, printer and speakers. Cubicle desk designs for business and government workplaces include a range of shelves, trays and cable-routing holes for computer systems. In some computer desks, the cabling is affixed to the modesty panel at the back of the desk, to create a neater appearance. There are a great variety of computer desk shapes and forms. Large multiple student computer desks configured in rows are designed to house dozens of computer systems while facilitating wiring, general maintenance, theft prevention and vandalism reduction.
Trundle beds (or truckle beds, trumple beds or hurly-beds) are usually considered a pair of beds, one a twin bed, and the other slightly smaller on rollers or casters so that it may be put beneath the upper twin bed for storage. Trundle beds are a space-saving idea and allow for an extra separate bed to be available when necessary, but do not require the second space constantly. The lower bed on some trundles can “pop-up” to be the same height as the twin it is stored beneath, creating a regular-height bed. Often used as daybeds, trundle beds are less common than bunk beds for children. Due to storing one bed beneath the other, neither bed usually has a box-spring. When not used for sleeping, the lower bed, with mattress removed, may be used as general storage.
Accent chairs are chairs that are placed strategically in a room to provide additional seating. There are two approaches to making use of an accent chair. One approach is to place the chair in a position that complements or accents the colors and textures of larger pieces, such as a sofa. A second approach to the use of this type of chair is to create a secondary seating area within the room. An accent chair can come in just about any design that can be imagined. The chair may be a simple straight-back chair with arms, such as a rocking chair. The chair can also be a larger piece, such as a chaise lounge. The idea is to have the chairs work in conjunction with the rest of the furniture in the room so the overall look is harmonious even while the space is given an additional purpose or function.
