HOW TO MAKE A BEDROOM COMFORTABLE

Amalfi-1.jpegAs you all now know, our brand Resistex has developed a particular expertize in performing yarns production, then used in every field of the daily life. From wearing to living. To take an example, your bedroom: the only place where you can switch off the noise and close out the rest of the world.

But it’s not enough. You must ensure yourself about the safety of the area you populate, generally attacched by bacterials or uv rays. Indeed Resistex developed  yarns for mattress and curtain which protect you. Totally.

But now let’s enjoy ourselves by reading all the tips suggested by Apartment Therapy: how to make your bedroom comfortable

When it comes to decorating, the bedroom is always my favorite part. Maybe because it was the first room in which I was allowed to flex my personal design freedom, but also because it is just that — very personal.

A bedroom should be your favorite place to rest. A luxurious (whatever that means to you) place to tuck yourself away from the world. Below are a few tips to help you have a relaxing, stress free bedroom.

BED & BEDDING
It all starts with the bed and bedding. Chose a mattress that feels best to you and offers you enough support. If you aren’t in the position to upgrade your mattress, try embellishing it by adding a feather bed or egg crate. For additional support, you could also try upgrading only your box spring. Try an assortment of pillows and stick to what you like. A combination of firm and soft are great for layering. Use pillow protectors for easy cleaning.

Keep it simple with 2 sets of 100% Egyptian cotton sheets, which get softer as you wash them. If money is no object, try ABC Carpet or Bloomingdale’s. If bargain shopping is more your thing, HomeGoods usually has a nice selection. Sheets should always be 100% cotton, and over 200 thread count. Feel them with the back of your hand before buying them (are they really soft?) and always wash them before you put them on your bed. To get that crisp hotel feel, you can starch and iron your sheets too.

A down comforter is always my go to because you can easily switch out the duvet to change the look, plus it can easily be thrown in the washing machine to clean. Duvets should also always be 100% cotton.

Everything on your bed should be soft and comfortable. Avoid beaded pillows, stiff coverlets that are scratchy, or metal bed frames that may poke you when you walk by. The sturdier the bed frame, the better. The one pictured above is an antique, and while it looks pretty, it was the opposite of ‘stress free’, since the wood slats underneath constantly fell out and the entire thing squeaked.

One last note, don’t buy the biggest bed you can fit simply because it can fit. Bedrooms are more charming if they aren’t swallowed up by a giant bed.

COLOR
You could go any way with color but whatever you chose, you should be in love with it. Going back to the picture above, I was not allowed to paint the white walls, so I added pops of my favorite colors using pillows, potted plants and a mobile. These colors are all very energizing. It is more difficult for me to wake up in the morning than to fall asleep at night, so a more vibrant, light-filled bedroom works to stimulate my senses and get me out of bed.

For those who have trouble sleeping, darker, more calming shades may be best.

CURTAINS
Drapes that pool on the floor and can easily open and close to control the light are my personal favorite. Choose window treatments based on how much privacy and light you need.

LIGHTING
Avoid overhead lighting, which is highly unflattering, and instead try several smaller, dim lamps around the room to highlight different areas. Bedside reading lamps are also a must, and add lovely touches of ambient light. Avoid florescent (blue or green toned) lighting in the bedroom and go for warm (yellow) light.

DECOR

Limit yourself to only a few precious objects to keep your bedroom clutter free. A couple of chairs or a bench, a dresser, a large plant, and a few of your favorite pieces of art will do nicely.

ORGANIZATION
Organization is key to having a stress free bedroom. If you take the time to make sure everything has a home and keep it there as often as possible, keeping your bedroom de-cluttered should be fairly simple.

Keep clothes hung in the closet or folded in a dresser, add under the bed storage if needed, and group like things like jewelry, handbags and shoes together and keep them in a designated spot. Buy pretty hooks and use them as part of the decor if it works. Bedside tables with drawers are always best so you can hide books, your ipod, a sleeping mask and personal items.

If you feel like stuff is popping up everywhere, then consider downsizing. You will feel better when your days are not spent managing your stuff. The rule of thumb is, if you haven’t worn it for six months, pass it on. Move seasonal items to another space if possible.

CLEANING
Making your bed, putting away your clothes, vacuuming the floor, and a light dusting should make your bedroom sparkle. Generally, I vacuum the room and dust and wash my sheets every two weeks, put away my clothes a few times a week when I do laundry, and only make my bed when company is coming over. It’s a fairly relaxed routine and it works for me!

Where Can You Find Carbon?

One of the most common elements in the universe, carbon is now utilized in many ways. The element is extracted from coal deposits. It is classified with group 14 of the periodic table. The following are some of the common applications of this non-metallic element.

Frequent Uses of Carbon

Heat resistant devices, tools and metal cutters have carbon built in. The metal is also used in cooling systems and machinery. Carbon monoxide is employed as a reduction agent. This is necessary to get compounds and other elements.

As carbon dioxide, it can be found in dry ice, fire extinguishers, carbonated and fizzy drinks. Vegetal carbon is sometimes used as a gas absorbent or bleaching agent. The same element is utilized as a decorative tool for jewelry. Many inkjet printers employ carbon as ink base. It is applied as a black fume pigment in car rims.

Application of Carbon Element

Graphite is one of the three carbon allotropes. It is one of the softest and most versatile. It is used in steel processing, pencil lead and lubricant. The carbon diamond element has many industrial and commercial uses. It is the hardest. It is also considered as one of the most precious gemstones in the world. Aside from being a valued piece of jewelry, diamonds are also used for cutting.

The Human Body and Carbon

Humans need this element in various phases of their development. The element functions as a body macronutrient. All parts of the body have carbon traces. Intricate life processes use the element as a building block. Without carbon, the atoms in the human body will disperse.

What is Carbon Dating?

This technique is used to determine the age of minerals and fossils. Carbon-14 is a radioactive isotope. It is the element that is used to perform this activity. Carbon dating is applicable on deceased life forms; it cannot be used for rocks.

Other Uses of Carbon

One of its major applications is in the shape of hydrocarbons as crude oil or methane gas. The former is used to produce kerosene and gasoline via distillation. When in coke form, the element can turn iron ore to 100% iron. The nonmetallic element can be mixed with titanium, boron, tungsten or silicon.
