How to Make a Small Kitchen More Functional

For many, the kitchen is the most important room of the house and while a small kitchen can limit functionality, it doesn’t have to. Here are some tips for taking advantage of limited space in your kitchen:

Organize With Functionality In Mind

While this may seem obvious, prioritizing functionality when making kitchen organization decisions can make a huge difference in the way the space is used. Avoid putting small appliances in places where they may get in the way of food prep and be sure to keep space between items that might need to be used at the same time by different people.

Choose Kitchen Furniture That Complements the Space

Limited counter space can be a huge problem in small kitchens. By using different types of kitchen carts, you can maximize work space and keep your kitchen as functional as possible. Whether you choose a small kitchen cart with wheels or a 3-tier kitchen cart with multiple levels of organization, kitchen carts are a great way to utilize small spaces without losing functionality.

Portable carts

The RoomPlace has a variety of portable kitchen carts that can help keep your kitchen organized. Choose from options with counter space, cabinets, drawers, baskets or some combination of the three.

What Is the Best Foundation for a Memory Foam Mattress

Bedroom with Memory Foam Mattress

If you’re considering purchasing a memory foam mattress, you’ll want to make sure you choose the right foundation to maximize comfort and protect your mattress from potential damage. In this post, we’ll be discussing some of the common foundation options and why platform beds remain the best option for those considering memory foam mattresses.

Plywood Frame or Floor Placement

While placing your memory foam mattress on a plywood base or directly onto the floor can provide stability for your mattress, the solid surface can allow a moisture buildup that can eventually lead to mold and mildew, especially if you live in a wet or humid climate.

Box Springs Foundation

While box springs can work as a proper foundation for a memory foam mattress, not every box spring is created equally. Traditional box springs do not necessarily have the center support needed to prevent sagging, bowing, or sinking in your mattress. If you do decide to use a box spring, we recommend opting for one that is specifically designed for memory foam mattresses.

Platform Bed Foundation

The best foundation for a memory foam mattress is a slatted platform bed. These foundations provide the support your mattress needs while also allowing adequate air flow to prevent mold and mildew. You’ll also want to be sure that the slats are close enough together to prevent sagging in the mattress. We recommend the slats be no more than 3” apart to make sure your mattress maintains its integrity.

At The RoomPlace, you’ll find king, queen, full and twin-sized platform beds that can provide optimum support for latex and memory foam mattresses. Visit one of our locations in Chicago or Indianapolis or browse our extensive bedroom furniture collection online.
