Create a Peaceful Bedroom with Interior Designer, Kyle Schuneman!

Bedrooms are always my favorite rooms to design. I love how personal the spaces become and that they truly are for the people who live there. A lot of clients want to redo their living rooms or dining rooms because that’s what their guests see but spending time designing a beautiful bedroom for yourself is the epitome of #selfcare.

Where to Start

This bedroom design is all about sophistication and peace.  I started with the statement Cordelia bed because it brings in such drama.  I love the exaggeration of the height of the headboard as a play on scale. To keep the rest of the room serene I’d paint the walls a lighter grey to envelope the space and then continue with grey tones to keep the contrast low.

When designing a monochromatic room it’s important to keep the hues varied and the furniture items slightly different.  That way you end up with a cool and collected design as opposed to a boring and run-of-the-mill styled bedroom.  

How to Accessorize

Starting with a patterned rug like the Seville in dove grey on the floor and then flanking the upholstered bed with large nightstands in a slightly darker shade help create that layered feel.  I went even darker with the Kellen dresser to be able to stand up to the large bed and not get lost. 

Since every room needs some color and life, I saw these beautiful Dupree lamps in a shimmery blue and thought they were perfect!  They act like the jewelry to a great outfit finishing it off. I used a plaid chair in a similar blue to keep your eye moving around the room. Throw a turquoise pillow on the bed to complete the look and add a fiddle leaf fig (I always use a live plant in my designs) in the corner and you have a peaceful retreat made just for you!

Create Upscale Living with Interior Designer, Kyle Schuneman!

When decorating a living room you can never go wrong with a neutral palette but the key to a successful design is how you put it together.  In this room, since all the furniture was calm I wanted to splash some excitement on the walls with a sophisticated and rich green.  Now, sometimes people get scared to paint their walls but I think what makes neutral rooms work is that tension.  And also keep in mind when you’re painting, that curtains, artwork and furniture  will break up that color.

Where to Start

I always think of the floors as my fifth wall so I went with the really bold Torrey rug that has an earthy color palette.  It’s the star of the room and then everything is built around it.  The Stratus sectional is the perfect complement to it because it’s big and inviting but doesn’t fight it’s pattern.

As you probably know by now I love mixing materials so I went with a metal and glass coffee table to be able to see the pattern of the rug and then chose a wood and stone credenza to round out the layers. That mixing of textures starts to tell the story of your room and makes boring neutral turn into classic and rich.  The Cordova chair is a great pop of color to pull out of the rug. Yes, grey is a color!

How to Accessorize

Throw in some great accessories and you have a well-worn room that will be the backdrop for many family memories to come. And that’s the key to design – creating your family’s backdrop and story, so take the time to build the space that you want to envelope you for years!

Change of Space: Winner Follow-Up

In 2019, Windy City Live and The RoomPlace partnered up to launch the “Change of Space” contest that gave one lucky winner an entire room makeover! Winning the contest was a complete surprise to Traci Smith, since her son Jordan, was the one who entered his hard-working single-mom in the contest! Leading up to winning the “Change of Space” contest, Traci lived in her apartment for a whole year without any living room furniture – one of the many sacrifices she made to give her son the best she could. Traci was greeted with great enthusiasm by the Windy City Live host, Val Warner, where she was then taken on a shopping spree at our largest and newest RoomPlace store at Lincolnwood Town Center. After exploring the whole store, Traci found her picture perfect living room set to complete her room makeover! Check out the Windy City Live Show segment of Traci receiving her living room makeover here:

Getting to Know Jordan

None of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for Traci’s son, Jordan! We were lucky enough to get the opportunity to reconnect with Jordan and hear what he has been up to since entering his mom in the “Change of Space” contest. Jordan is a 21 year old hard-working young man who enjoys being active! Whether it’s participating in basketball, baseball or soccer, Jordan is up for the challenge. Jordan will be entering his senior year of college at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) to complete his degree in Health Sciences, but it doesn’t end there! Jordan plans to expand his education by pursing a career in pharmacy. Throughout the summer and into his senior year, he plans to take advantage of his Pharmacy Technician license in training by gaining experience and learning the ins and outs of being a pharmacist.

When we asked Jordan what his goal in life was, he shared that being able to provide for his family and give back to his mom is his ultimate goal. Additionally, he informed us that the RoomPlace and Windy City Live were able to help him start accomplishing his goal when his mom was awarded the Florence collection living room set   complete with all the accessories, wall art and rug to complete the transformation! The RoomPlace was, and is, honored to support Jordan in achieving his goals! 

Last year, without hesitation, Jordan wanted to find a way to give back to his mom, so it is only appropriate to return the favor. This time, the RoomPlace is honored to give Jordan a leg up by helping him upgrade a bedroom for himself! Jordan chose our best-selling Denver Bedroom Group, that is available in both white and gray. Jordan thought white would go best with his room! Again, we want to congratulate Jordan on being accepted into the Health and Sciences Program at IUPUI and we hope your new RoomPlace bedroom set suites you well! We also want to thank Shay and her team at our Merrillville, Indiana location for assisting Jordan in finding the perfect bedroom set!

A Guide to Matching Floor Lamps in Your Living Room

Floor lamps

The right lighting can make your home feel like a warm and inviting place to be, while the wrong lighting can easily make you feel like you are living in a hospital room. Placement, style and even the type of bulb you choose are all key factors in finding the right lighting to transform your home into a relaxing oasis. It’s also important to make sure you have matching floor lamps that blend in seamlessly with your room’s style. Here are some expert tips to help you master the art of lighting and floor lamp style.


The proper placement of light fixtures is important for creating a functional space for your needs. For example, floor lamps tucked into dark corners or along each side of your sofa can completely change the feel of a room. If you have a fireplace as the focal point of the room, consider getting matching floor lamps for each side.


Your floor lamps should complement your existing décor. If your furniture is very traditional and you choose contemporary floor lamps, your living room may feel off-kilter or appear imbalanced. We recommend staying within your chosen color scheme, but if you find a lamp you love, remember that the floor lamp shade can usually be changed to work with your existing palette. Arc floor lamps are a classic look that have been redesigned for just about every taste and style.


Scale is also important when it comes to matching floor lamps in your living room. An oversized floor lamp next to a tiny table or love seat can make a living room or den appear uneven. Try pairing large floor lamps with sizable sectionals and save the small lamps for side tables or accent chairs.

Type of Bulb

The type of light bulb you select will also have an effect on a room’s lighting. There are many choices when it comes to light bulbs for lamps, and each has their own pros and cons.

  • Incandescent: This standard bulb gives a warm, flattering light. It’s dimmable and inexpensive, but not terribly energy efficient
  • CFL: Short for compact fluorescent light, these bulbs are extremely energy efficient. They produce a very bright light, are not dimmable and are higher in cost than incandescents, but generally pay for themselves within one year.
  • LED: These bulbs are even more energy efficient than CFLs and last up to five times longer. Some are dimmable, however, the light doesn’t spread as well as with incandescent bulbs.

The long-term cost and energy savings of CFLs and LEDs are undeniable and they’ve come a long way. Choosing an LED bulb labeled “soft or warm white” and “dimmable” will give you the same light quality as a traditional incandescent bulb and you won’t have to change it for decades.! For a brighter, more energizing space, CFLs are best.

With these expert tips, you’ll be able to find the perfect lighting to suit your home and your style. Stop by any of our store locations in Illinois, Wisconsin or Indiana for more lighting inspiration or visit us online at to shop our complete lighting collection from the comfort of your home.

Top Benefits of Concrete Dining Tables

concrete slab dining table

Concrete has been a hot trend for some time now—and it shows no sign of cooling off. People are turning to concrete over other natural stones for everything from kitchen counters and flooring to dining room furniture. If you’re currently shopping for a new dining room table, here are some of the pros and cons of concrete dining room tables.



There’s no question dining room tables take a beating. From hot dishes and drinks to spills and scratching, it can be difficult to keep them looking like new. However, concrete dining room tables are extremely durable. They’re sturdy, strong and heat- and scratch-resistant, which means they’ll last for years with little wear and tear.

Easy to Clean

Cement dining room sets are also very easy to clean because they are water-resistant, unlike other common dining room table materials such as wood. Concrete dining room tables can be wiped down with mild soap and water and doing so regularly will help ensure your table stays in excellent shape.

Sleek & Modern

If your home has a modern aesthetic, concrete tables are ideal. They easily complement sleek, contemporary dining rooms, whether they have an industrial-chic vibe or more of a mid-century look.


Needs Sealant

Concrete is not without its flaws, though there are few. One con is the fact that the material is porous. This means that it can easily absorb liquid and needs to be sealed immediately after purchase and resealed every one to three years. Sealant can be damaged by extreme heat, sharp knives and harsh cleaners, so it’s also important to stay on top of your sealant schedule.

Low Bed vs. High Bed: Which Is Right for You?

Standard bed height may not be the first thing you think about when shopping for new bedroom furniture. But it’s an important factor to consider, as the choice you make will end up affecting you every single night. When deciding between a high vs. low bed, there are two common types to consider — standard and platform. Read this overview of the pros and cons of platform beds and standard beds to help you make an informed decision.

Platform Beds

Platform bed frames are lower than standard bed height. This low-to-the-ground position gives them a cool, sleek look that complements most modern bedroom designs. They’re also a good choice if you’re watching your budget because you don’t have to purchase a box spring. If you have young children or small pets sleeping with you, a platform bed can be safer for them to get in and out of because of its low height.

Standard Beds

Because standard bed frame height has a much higher elevation from the ground than platform bed height, standard beds can be easier for elderly people and people with mobility issues to get in and out of. If you’re shopping for a frame you hope to keep for years and continue to use as you age, a standard frame might be the smartest choice.

Standard beds are also good for small bedrooms as they offer more storage. They typically allow for at least 25 inches of space between the floor and the top of the mattress, giving you more room to store items you may not have room for in your closets or dresser drawers.

Mattress Considerations

While the main factor affecting bed height is the frame itself, mattress height can also play a role. Factors like support levels, quality and comfort can affect the height of the mattress itself and impact the overall elevation of your bed. These factors vary by brand and can make a difference in the height of your standard or platform bed, so it’s important to remember to consider them when you’re shopping.

Bar Stool Height Guide

Finding the perfect bar stools can be tricky. Not only is there color, style, and material to consider, but the right height is critical to a stool that is as functional as it is stylish. Narrowing down the right height for your bar, counter, or table is a great place to start when picking stools.

How Much Space Do You Need for Bar Stools?

When adding barstools to a counter or table, you need to bring legroom into the equation. You should leave about 10 inches between a seat and the counter or table. This distance is usually the most comfortable for someone of average height. To figure out how tall your chairs should be, grab a measuring tape, pencil, and paper. Measure from the floor to the top of the counter or table surface. Write down that number and subtract 10 inches to get the height of the stool you need for that space.

Remember to also measure the length of the counter to determine the number of stools that can fit in the space. A good rule of thumb is to allow 28 inches for each place setting.


counter stools.jpg

What is the Difference Between Counter Height and Bar Height?

Overall, counter stools and bar stools are pretty similar. They both come in similar styles, and you can find options with and without backs. However, there is a bit of a height difference between the two. Counter-height bar stools tend to have a seat height of 24 inches, which makes them a great choice for most breakfast bars and kitchen counters. Keeping the 10-inch legroom rule in mind, they’re ideal for dining tables in the 34-39 inch range.

Bar-height stools are slightly taller and usually have a seat height of 30 inches. You may also see these called pub stools, and while pub stools are typically the same height, you always want to double-check product specifications. Bar stools work well with tables in the 40-43 inch range.


bar stool

A third stool option is the table stool, but these aren’t sold at a standard height. If you want table stools, you’ll most likely need to purchase them as part of a dining set, but sometimes you can find them available individually. For a standard height table, look for a short stool or bench in the 18-22 inch range.


table stoolIf you have a non-standard height counter or table, adjustable-height bar stools will be your best bet. The seat height on these stools can be adjusted up to 10 inches to perfectly fit your space. At The RoomPlace you’ll find dozens of stools in all sizes and styles. Shop our collection online or visit our showrooms in the Chicago or Indianapolis to find the right one for you.
