mission-style-platform-bedWhether you like the natural look or you just like the idea of being able to take a base piece of furniture and turn it into what you want, the Mission Style Platform Bed may be the perfect addition to your home.

Made of natural pine wood, this bed is about as green as it gets, coming with no treatments of any sort to the surface of the wood. That means you can leave it natural and enjoy the beauty of wood or  you may choose to paint or stain it to go with the decor of the bedroom.

This queen-sized bed sits 15 inches off the ground. That allows plenty of space underneath the bed for a couple of possible uses.

First you could put drawers under the bed as a storage option to give you more space to put those things that never seem to have a place to be put away. The matching drawers can be purchased separately.

If you have the storage under control in the room, you may prefer to try using that space to store another bed. You can purchase a trundle bed to always have an extra place to sleep when the kids or family have company over for the night.

What We Like:

  • This bed is a great value for the price.
  • If you are paying attention to being eco friendly or just like more green alternatives for your home, this is made of chemical free pine.
  • It’s made to be able to accommodate drawers underneath that can be purchased to offer extra storage.
  • If you have a child who often has friends over, you can choose a trundle bed to put underneath to create more sleeping space without losing floor space during the day.
  • You can leave this looking natural or paint or stain it to your preferences.
  • Made in the USA from solid chemical free pine

pike-st-510-count-sheet-setIf you are looking to redo your bed to make it feel softer and look more welcoming at the end of the day you may be looking for the Pike Street 510-Thread Count 100% Cotton Sateen Sheet Set.

This set is a four-piece set that includes:

  • 1 Flat Sheet
  • 1 Fitted Sheet
  • 2 Pillowcases.

Made of 100% cotton sateen, these sheets offer you a feel of luxury each time you lay down.

With the new types of mattresses on the market today, many worry if the sheets they are buying will fit their mattress. This set is made to fit a mattress up to 18 inches thick, which will cover almost all thick and pillow top mattresses on the market.

Another concern about many sheet sets is whether or not they will shrink with washing. As long as you follow the directions for washing on this set you should not have any problem with shrinkage and you will know they will continue to fit for a long time to come.

What We Like:

They hold their shape and size after a number of washings with less shrinkage than you usually see.

The high thread count is evident, as these feel great to the touch.

They have been designed to even fit well over larger and thicker mattresses with pillow tops (up to 18 inches).

Fill power is a measurement of how well the down in an item can insulate. Essentially, the amount of fluff and down that is needed to keep you warm. The best quality down does a better job with less down then lower quality down.

Measuring Fill Power

The measurement of fill power is on a scale of up to 900. This number is determined by an experiment in which the down is compressed in a plexiglass cylinder. The larger the number the higher quality in down. For example, 400 is considered the low end of good down, 550-700 are very good down items and as you head up to 900 you are moving into luxury down territory.

Here is what you should look for when judging down products:

Fill Rating – Those items that have good down fill power will have that rating put right on the product. That means you should see a number like 400, 600 or 700. The higher the number, the better. If you don’t see a rating number on a down product, that is likely because it has fallen below the 400 range and is not considered decent quality.

Down in Comforters – You always want to make sure to get a decent fill rating in comforters. Comforters with a lower fill rating are more likely see the down move around and create cold spots, where it is not insulated.

Down in Pillows
– While you may think the higher level of fill power in pillows would mean a stiffer pillow that is not true. In pillows you must not only know the fill power of the pillows, but also how much down is in the pillow as it will still take more of a higher quality material to create a firmer pillow.
