Thinking About A Bunk Bed?

When I was little, I loved three things about my bedroom: my stuffed monkey, my books, and my bunk bed. And while these things have long been sold off at a garage sale or given to neighbors, I still cherish the memories of growing up sharing a bunk bed with my little brother. If your family includes small children and are looking for new bedroom furniture, we here at The RoomPlace definitely think you should consider investing in a bunk bed.

There are a number of advantages to bunk beds. We all know how crowded a house can feel with small children running about, and the extra space afforded by bunk beds is a welcome addition to any children’s bedroom. Bunking beds opens up extra space for storage as well as running around and playing with toys. Secondly, bunking beds are an affordable option. At The RoomPlace, we have a number of bunks beds available at great prices to provide the best value to you and your family.

Finally, bunk beds are fun! Nothing captures kids’ imaginations like bunk beds, and your children will spend hours and hours making forts, or playing inside their own person pirate ship or space shuttle. And with built in guard rails on the top bunk, you can rest assured that your children are not only having fun and sleeping soundly, but staying safe while they do so.

Here at The RoomPlace, we know that finding children’s furniture that is practical, affordable, and fun can be a challenge, but we’re here to make your life easy. Stop by for a visit and check out some of the best bedroom sets around Chicago

It’s Time to Get Your Summer Color Palette Ready

We’re well into spring, and summer is just around the corner. You know what that means—it’s time to spread the summer warmth with new furniture in the yellows, blues, pinks, reds and other bright clear colors that signal the warmth and sunny days to come.

If you’re on a budget but want a splash of summer in your living room, bedroom, office or den, then head down to The RoomPlace, and check out our summer ottomans. We have plush ottomans in red, rust, and blue. Pair one of these vibrant ottomans with your current furniture, and flood your room with summertime bliss.

And since we’re already talking summer, why not give your child’s room the overhaul you’ve been talking about since winter? Kids are going to be out of school soon, and it’s a great time to bring them down to your local Chicago bedroom set furniture dealer. If you’re child loves pink or blue, both of which are summer colors, we have kid’s bedroom sets incorporating both of these eye-grabbing colors. Let their imaginations take them to far off places in a room with warm tones: they’ll smile every time they enter their bedroom.

Don’t forget, a summer spruce-up doesn’t have to mean investing in a ton of new furniture. Even a simple area rug in bright patterns and warm colors can make any room a summer sanctuary. At The RoomPlace, we think spring and summer are two of the most enjoyable months when it comes to being creative with your furniture. If you’re stuck in the grey tones, head on down to our furniture store today!

For industrial and unfinished loft or apartment styles, you’ll want your furniture to match the attitude of your new place.

Plan a trip down to The RoomPlace nearest you, and let us show you what your new home could look like. 


Why Protecting Furniture Matters

When you buy new furniture, you’re making an investment for the future. The problem? Well, life happens, and sometimes life gets messy. If you have kids or animals, it’s likely that you love them to pieces. However, it’s also likely that they can (and will) damage the gorgeous furniture you spent months saving for.

If you can relate to the above, then next time you purchase new furniture, you should seriously consider a Protection Plan. We currently have what’s called our Premium Plus 1 Plan. This plan will protect your furniture in a number of ways. Forget about stains, damage, structural issues and more, with the Premium Plus 1 Plan, most issues are just a quick fix away.

The plan lasts for a total of five years, so you’re furniture will be protected far into the future. If you’re looking to buy furniture off of The RoomPlace furniture store’s website, you can still opt for the Premium Plus 1 Plan. Assuming the particular pieces you’ve chosen can be covered by the plan, you’ll be prompted upon checkout to either opt for the plan, or not. Your protection is your choice, and that’s all that matters to us.

So when it comes time to pick out that gorgeous new king bedroom set, or stylish new dining room table, you can rest easy knowing your new furniture will maintain its beauty for years to come. If you’d like to know more about our protection plan and whether or not it will cover the pieces you’ve had your eye on, stop in to your Schaumburg and Madrid-area furniture store today. 


Boost Your Child’s Imagination with an Imaginative Room

Colors, shapes, and design elements can all boost your child’s creativity. One of the best (and easiest) ways to bring these things into your child’s life is by giving their bedroom a fun makeover. We have dozens of bedroom sets to choose from, so let your child’s creativity blossom and bring them down to The RoomPlace to find the perfect bedroom set.

Whether your child likes bright colors or soft palettes, our furniture can be arranged to match his or her needs. Most of our kid’s bedroom sets come with multiple pieces of wooden furniture. However, this wood ranges from light oak, to painted white, to stylish jet black, so your child won’t want for options. We carry princess cut furniture along with more modern styles that are great for either boys or girls. Once you’ve found the bedroom set for your child, you can boost their new room’s creativity by adding a few touches of your own. Paint the walls one solid bold color, or add design elements like stripes or circles. If you want to get even more creative, paint a simple mural on your child’s wall like a sunset or a garden landscape, and be sure to let them take part in the fun.

Giving your child a creative place to call their own will not only bring them comfort and security, but will also offer them a place to get creative. If you want to help your child learn and grow, why not try out an updated bedroom? Come on out to your local Chicago furniture store and let us help you help your kids. We can’t wait!

Get Ready, National Bed Month is Almost Here

We’ve been waiting all year for this, and now, it’s almost here. Do you know what the month of March is? It’s National Bed Month: the time of year where we recognize the cozy mattresses we spend nearly 1/3 of our lives curled up on.

Here at The RoomPlace, we know that sleep is an essential part of life. Sleep helps us relieve stress and allows time for our bodies to relax and our brains to do various tasks like consolidate memories. National Bed Month is meant to remind us of why we need sleep and how sleep can help us live happier and more productive lives.  

A good night’s sleep starts with your mattress. We don’t have to tell you not to trust 1/3 of your life to just any old mattress, that fact should be obvious. If you’re ready to dump your old, bumpy mattress for a brand new model, come check out our selection of Simmons Mattresses, like our Simmons Beautysleep Kitner King Firm Cushion Low Profile Mattress Set. If you’re looking for other size mattresses, feel free to search our fantastic mattress inventory, and find what works best for you.

Going into March, we hope everyone makes it a goal to get a better night’s sleep. Check out the below hints and tips to get the most out of your sleep.  

  • Move distracting entertainment equipment and unnecessary clutter out of your bedroom.
  • Have a bedtime routine and stick to it. A routine will help your body know when it’s time to go to bed, so you won’t thrash around for hours trying to fall asleep.
  • Only use your bedroom for sleep. If your mind associates your bedroom as a tranquil and un-distracting space, you’ll be able to sleep more soundly in the space.

If you’re ready to start celebrating National Bed Month a little early, then feel free to come out to one of our convenient Chicago bed stores today. We have an array of mattresses and bed frames to make your bedroom the most calming place on Earth. We can’t wait to see you.

Nightstands: No Bedroom Is Complete Without One

At The RoomPlace, we know there are many furniture items that may not attract much attention or get much recognition, but still play roles that would be missed if absent. One such piece is the nightstand, generally a small and unobtrusive table with a drawer or two nestled by the side of your bed. Due to their size and positioning, most people don’t even notice their nightstand on a daily basis; it’s simply there, providing a space for your lamp and alarm clock, and a surface to place your glasses or book on. But take that away, and suddenly your nightly routine is incomplete.

Most of our bedroom sets come with the nightstand included, but if you suddenly find yourself in need of a new nightstand, you probably aren’t looking to buy an entire set. That’s fine, because at our furniture store you can buy nightstands in many styles—there’s bound to be something that matches the look and feel of your home.

For a light, Italian-inspired look with mod chrome handles and a glossy white finish, the Milano nightstand is a great option. The Sean Pierre Nightstand offers a more traditional look, though if you want something featuring both rich wood finishes and a sleeker, more modern design, the New York nightstand is a great favorite with its contrasting wood grains and round handles. The Symphony nightstand offers a lighter, antique look with its intricately-carved details.

Nightstands perform an important function in most of our lives, so if you happen to need one, be sure to head over to The RoomPlace to shop our impressive selection of styles. We’d love to answer any questions you have and help you find the piece that best matches your need. Stop by today!

The Vanity Table: A History

Also known as a dressing table or a toilet table, the vanity table has long provided both men and women a station for all activities concerning the upkeep of appearances. The first dressing table was probably referred to as such in the 17th century, a small table with a few drawers. 18th-century cabinet makers began to make an art out of constructing small tables with elaborate drawers used to keep beauty products tucked out of sight when not in use, resulting in small tables with multiple panels and boxes that fold and pop out for use.

In the 18th century, ‘lowboys’ as they were called became increasingly popular in England and the United States. Now that most bathrooms are outfitted with cabinets, mirrors and counters of their own, a vanity isn’t a necessity anymore—but for those with the space (and the need for storage!) it’s a very enjoyable luxury to have.

At The RoomPlace, we make it easy for you to create the vanity table of your dreams, and match it to one of our bedroom sets or the furniture you already have. Many of our dressers come with mirrors that match, like the elegant Benton dresser or the sleek and stately Bradbury dresser. Really, it’s quite easy to create a vanity that works for you—just head over to our Mirrors section, where you’ll find many pieces that can stand alone or be paired with a dresser or table.

Interested in outfitting your home with your own vanity table? Let The RoomPlace help. Our experienced furniture dealers will help you find the perfect piece for your home. Whether you’re in Illinois or Indiana, our furniture stores are just a short trip away, so stop in today!
