Your home is for many people not only sleeping place, but also well-being. According to a survey, this represents 90 percent of 1336 interviewed for “Security”. Furniture and lighting design can enhance this feeling, or even only produce.
But what distinguishes the “feel good”furniture as extremely durable and comfortable – what features are there? And how can your own four walls be dived easily and conveniently in relaxing light?Provide overview and check sales contract Before new furniture be purchased, should be clarified some formalities and quality checks. For the price and the quality of the furniture to be satisfactory, a price comparison is recommended.
A search is to filter out the right offer. Thereby, different furniture stores of different price classes should be compared. Many furniture stores have the same supplier and have some identical pieces. An offer appears too high, a cheaper deal may be mentioned in the sales pitch directly from the competition. Discounts are so may have to negotiate. And when a large order is placed, for example for a complete bedroom – closet, bed and nightstand – usually a discount is in there. The questions: “Is to make something in the final price?” or “how much could descend yet?”, should be mentioned only at the end of the entire account list. Because a high total, the dealer can likely to talk, as when a contrast, low price for a single piece of furniture. In addition to the furniture store comparison, it is worth to browse the Internet. Because some online dealers offer furniture often cheaper.
In the selection of shops is sure that it is a “trusted store”. A seal of approval, conferred various shops according to individual criteria. Among others the privacy or the returns control fall under the criteria. Also, there is the possibility to conclude a buyer guarantee. This ensures, for example, in the case of non-delivery, refund of the purchase amount. The “classic” version of the guarantee can be activated right after the purchase, a hedge is possible up to a height of 2,500 euros. What shops with the seal of quality are excellent, is to find out by using this search.
After putting the purchase contract, the terms and conditions should be observed in addition to the prices and discounts granted. The furniture retailer guarantees only a right of return over a period of 14 days. If it does, that the buyer wants to terminate the contract after the cancellation period, the dealer has the right to demand a cancellation fee. This is usually at least ten percent of the purchase price. All oral agreements are in writing to fix in any case.
A down payment is a prerequisite for the Treaty, by law not to do so, the buyer is obliged to make these. By a deposit is rather clear and if, should make up no more than 10 percent of the purchase price. Because in case of insolvency of the buyer often not reimbursed the deposit. Beautiful and rugged Optics is not necessarily an indication of a quality piece of furniture. Who places value, can focus on a single label.
For example the “bio seal”, which makes recognisable for consumers the quality and the sustainable production of same emblazoned on some foods. As more and more consumers attach importance to high-quality products. The furniture industry has followed this trend. The Deutsche Gütegemeinschaft furniture E.V. (DGM) has launched the “Golden M” on the market. Pieces of furniture that have this seal, have been – tested thoroughly with regard to their functionality, their processing and in terms of their are. Doors and drawers are for example about 80.000mal opened and closed, or a weight several times dropped on a sofa. The emissions test is performed in a special climate Chamber. The emission label of the DGM gives information to the pollutant emissions of a piece of furniture consumers like sofa, Cabinet, table or mattress. While the furniture are tested and classified into various emission classes (classes A-D). Where the class means A, the least pollution. Harmful substances can be pesticides in upholstery trimmings or flame retardant in fabrics.
As synthetic shoes in leather look, there are also some wood imitation on the furniture market, which often are no longer to distinguish for the layman by the real wood version. Characteristics of different furniture materials There are some differences between the individual materials used for the production. These consumers should take care to make sure that’s is not a fake, being sold as real wood.
Furniture made of solid wood are, often on irregularities by the fact that they consist of a natural material. And so two tables which appear identical at first glance, can differentiate themselves from each other resin residue, as well as differences in colour or grain closer, through cracks. These irregularities are distinctive characteristics of real wood or solid wood furniture. The descriptions of “Wood” or “Solid wood” are available on the labels of the furniture, which correspond to the DIN 68871. This standard for furniture labels means that all parts, up on the back wall and the drawer bottoms, from a species there are and are not veneered. Because when a piece of furniture that is veneered, the surface is made of wood. It is glued on chipboard, for example.
Whether it is at the surface are real wood, or only an imitation, is usually not to identify for the consumer. Real wood veneers are frequently photographed and printed on wood particle board. Referred to are these imitations with “Oak decor” or “Maple laminate”, among others. To exclude that it is an imitation of a real wood surface, which has Initiative Furnier + nature in 2003 to mark a solid wood surface the description “veneer – real wood” introduced.
To move the quality furniture in the right light and make the room atmosphere cozy, the lighting design can be adapted the premises and the use of individual space.
Before the electric light was invented, mainly the Sun was regarded as a light source. Later, the Neanderthal man discovered the fire as a light source, which also gave them heat. This type of light generated by fire, can be found in some living rooms are still in the form of candles or a fireplace. However, electric light sources dominate in the living areas. The electrically generated light in the invention of the light bulb found its beginnings. This happened in the year 1879 Thomas Alva Edison. This was technically the first approaches from artificial light.
Today, the light bulb from the market has been taken and replaced by some more modern and energy-efficient lamps. The halogen lamp works similar to the bulb once. The formation of light happens by heating a tungsten filament. This is little energy efficient in contrast to the energy – and LED lamp. The energy saving lamp containing a tungsten filament, but fluorescent tubes, which are filled with gas and produce light. Due to their toxic mercury content, the lamps are to be disposed of properly. For example, through a recycling center.
When the LED lamps, small light-emitting diodes for the reproduction of light are responsible. These lamps contain mercury. But these are not yet household waste to throw because they are recyclable. The planning and the use of various light sources can be performed in different ways. Light has such influence on the human Biorhythm. As light sources affect human well-being and can be used to promote this.
The light has a decisive influence on the Biorhythm of the people we know. It is bright and the sun shines, the body pours out serotonin (hormone of happiness), the body is active. The activating and relaxing effects of light can be generated by using different lighting systems in the home. Artificial light sources can be used as a room or mood light. The light is so to speak the basic illumination. On the ceiling or the floor lights that brighten the room towards all sides are attached. So the eye perceives a uniform lighting and thus less tired. In contrast to the light, makes the mood lighting in the living areas of less for a light flooding, as rather for a relaxing mood. Especially in the evening hours, when the body is slowly come to rest, mood lights are a good alternative to the ambient light. The lights should be chosen but not too bright and can be placed on a dresser, the floor or window sill.
For the room – and mood lighting to be co-ordinated, or regulated depending on the time of day and feeling, the light source should be dimmable. By regulation, not only a uniform lighting is ensured, but also light accents, which can increase the feel-good factor. It is also possible to set the lighting conditions in different situations: while watching TV or reading a dimmed lighting is most pleasant and while working a uniform room lighting. Flexible control can be done by using timers, motion detectors or Dimmschaltern. Here helpful information relevant to the operation of control elements as well as their best space planning and energy efficiency can be found.Not only a variable lighting that adjusts to the room and her own needs, provides a feeling of relaxation. A comfortable sofa can provide additional recovery after a stressful day.
Of small or to the version with function of sleep – sofa market XXL is diverse. Therefore, it is important to adjust the sofa not only her own needs and the space, but to check the quality. The so-called XXL or big sofas are suitable especially for people who like to “get wide on the couch”. Because this a this posture is taken automatically, because the seat is relatively low. For people who like to just in front of the living room table, sit and work, this sofa variant will be rather inappropriate. Advance the room dimensions are for a XXL sofa to take and per sofa page at least a meter is to be added, so that more easily to the piece of furniture past can been.
Who wants to sit not only on the sofa but also comfortably sleep on this, choose a sofa. Before you buy, it should be tested whether the pull-out function is easy to use. Also a function is for “Ground sleeper” rather, which allows forward or down to pull out a sleeping surface.

If only little space, or the space has some corners, are modular sofas, which are made up of individual “seating cubes’ advantage. There are the individual parts with or without armrests, as well as in various sizes and shapes. As a result, they can be integrated into any room. A cube can also be used as storage for the legs or as a coffee table.
