A good number of the population consider the bedroom as their favorite room in the house. Many spend a good amount of time in it because of its comfortable aura and cozy feel. Because its a place for slumber and rest, being in ones bedroom gives a feeling of freedom and comfort. Because a bedroom has to keep a comforting aura, many take time out to choose the furniture and pieces that goes into it. Like any other room in the house, the things in it must fit the function of the room and the available space in it. Design and the price of the furniture are two of the top concerns of people when getting fixtures for their bedroom and for the rest of the house. Furniture makes or breaks the look of the house, and so care must be exercised while choosing what to get. While design and price are valid considerations, there are other factors that need to be considered but are totally ignored by many. Two important considerations that are ignored are the health and ecological benefits of the furniture have. These two are very valid criteria that one should consider when getting furniture other than considering just the price and design.
Real Wood Shows its Quality. You can tell real wood from its smell, its feel and the glow that only comes from well oiled or waxed hardwood. Leather has its own feel and smell, although its not so much the leather that counts, but its quality. Many types of leather are so thin that you can easily stick your fingers through them - and dont believe anybody that sells you furniture saying that it cannot be damaged. Fine furniture can be damaged - it can be knocked, scraped, stained and scratched just the same as any other furniture. If somebody tells you that this table will resist all knocks and scratches then they are either being economical with the truth (lying) or trying to sell you a synthetic utilitarian piece. Genuine wood is vulnerable. Only thermosetting resins can resist knocks and scratches. The same considerations are true whether you are purchasing furniture from Chicago, Miami or from furniture stores in Atlanta. Atlanta furniture stores are just as likely to sell you cheap lounge furniture as stores in Chicago. How can you tell? How do you know if you are buying a genuine hardwood dining table or one made from particleboard and cheap veneer?
But one need not sacrifice having beautiful furniture for these considerations. There are options available that would allow you to get the best of all options available without sacrificing safety and quality. Organic bedroom furniture are pieces that would give you many health benefits and environmental benefits without sacrificing quality, design and price. Organic furniture are made from organically grown sources and are processed organically as well these pieces of furniture are mostly solid wood furniture, only that the source of the wood are organically grown, processed and made to ensure that the finished product retains the natural beauty of natural hardwood. No synthetic and harmful chemicals were used when making these fixtures. There are many other organic solid wood furniture available, ranging from organic beds, mattresses, fibers, cloths to cabinets. Many are skeptical of these kinds of furniture, saying that there is not fundamental difference between them and non-organic furniture. And so this article will present several advantages to getting organic furniture for your bedroom.
Many are unaware that since most furniture are made from synthetic materials, they have the greatest potential to actually harm both the body and the environment. Plastics, metals and some hardwood pieces often contain chemicals that help preserve and keep the integrity of the furniture. Not doing this would jeopardize the business, and so furniture manufacturers incorporate preservative materials to their products to increase their longevity in warehouses and stores. For example, some solid wood furniture is imbibed with pesticide and/or fungicides that kill insects or molds that may invade and destroy the furniture. Some have preservatives like Formaldehyde as for plastic or steel fixtures, especially those with color, their paints may contain lead. All these pose a significant health risk to the users. Some disintegrate and turn into vapour, but this ultimately causes harm too. Inhaling the fumes from chemicals in the furniture will cause disorders and disease. Whats more is that these chemicals do not break down easily. They stay with your solid wood furniture until the day you dispose of them. When you dispose of them, the environment then takes the damages. The chemicals harm and pollute the environment.
