Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)FAQ

What Is A Cottagecore Bed Idea?

At the nucleus of the cottagecore aesthetic is nature. Everything in the room should share an inherent connection to natural elements. Think 18th-century living and go with modern farmhouse décor and candles. Build a wooden bookshelf and fill the shelves with classic literature titles and old science books.

How To Make A Dark Academia Bedroom?

Choose a dark wood tone as your color palette and work off that. You want the bedroom to exude an enigmatic vibe. Mystery is the name of the game with this design style, so don’t reveal your entire hand with silly room décor. Find an old teak wood study desk, antique cabinets, and old rocking chair.  

How Do You Make A Brutalist Bedroom?

To begin with, should you need inspiration or help with identifying the elements of brutalism, watch Stanley Kubrick’s “Clockwork Orange.” Brutalist interior design is super simple and minimalist at its core. Gray is the color of choice here, and make sure you go beyond the notion of “less is more.”

Can I Install Fire Sprinklers In My Child's Room?

According to recent figures from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), bedroom sprinklers lower civilian fire fatalities by almost 90 percent. Fire protection sprinklers also lower property damage by 70 percent. The same study also found that a mere seven percent of residential homes that caught fire had an indoor sprinkler system.

Should My Child's Room Have A Separate WiFi Connection?

If you think he or she deserves it and is mature enough to enjoy a private WiFi connection, then it wouldn’t hurt. The upside is that it would free up more space on your WiFi connection, allowing you to enjoy a faster internet speed. 

Cool Beds Conclusion

A cool bed should have the right mattress. For older kids, a tempur pedic or memory foam mattress would foster healthy growth and provide a good night’s sleep. After you’ve taken care of the bed style, install LED lights with different colors. 

You could go with Brooklyn bedding or a wooden headboard design to capture a classic style or rustic farmhouse aesthetic. A cool bed is all about better sleep first and foremost. However, the coolest beds offer stylish intrigue while you stay asleep.
