The Power of A Good Night’s Sleep

Are you getting a good night’s sleep? Every night? Estimates from the National Sleep Foundation suggest that at least one in three Americans are not getting enough quality sleep, which is having a huge impact on their quality of life. And while many people claim they get between 7-8 hours a night, 35 percent of Americans report their sleep quality as “poor” or “only fair,” and 20 percent say they don’t wake up feeling refreshed on any of the past seven days.

While some of the reasons may be health related (and people should certainly check in with their doctors for ongoing issues), other reasons include making a few changes in your home to create sleep conditions for uninterrupted sleep.

First, ensure you have the perfect temperature – not too cold or too hot. Research suggests that keeping your head nice and cool is conducive to good sleep. Some say 65 degrees is the perfect temperature for sleeping.

Next, be sure to make your bedroom as sound-free as possible. Some people try white noise machines to drown out noises. Personally I use a wave machine. There’s just something about nodding off to soothing ocean waves.

Homestead is a popular style that many customers choose to customize for their personal home styles.

One of the most important things you can do is to make your room as dark as possible in the hours you sleep. Most people enjoy having a television in

their bedrooms, but many electronics have lights that glow, making it nearly impossible to have complete blackness. Try adding a TVLiftCabinet to your room. Not only is it functional, but when you’re not watching your flatscreen television, everything disappears into the unit. It’s also a great way to hide clutter, which can also distract you from relaxing in your bedroom sanctuary.

These are just a few tips to help you on your way to a better night’s sleep. And as my mom used to say, “sleep tight.” There was also something about bed bugs biting, but it’s not as cute as it used to be.

Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall – Father’s Day is Just Around the Corner

Room Mirror

The first Father’s Day can be traced to the ruins of Babylon. It is believed that a young boy called Elmesu carved a Father’s Day message on a card made of clay more than 4,000 years ago, wishing his father good health and a long life. Today many dads still get clay gifts and homemade cards, but it’s safe to say that today’s dad might appreciate a gift that not only gives him pleasure, but is something his entire family would enjoy for years to come.

On the top of the list: A new flat screen television for the family room. Today’s models come in many iterations, including televisions that become beautiful mirrors when not in use. That’s right. Many homeowners are tired of having the television being the focal point of the room, but almost everyone has a mirror in many spaces. TVLiftCabinet just starting offering this unique home furnishing – just in time for Father’s Day.




When you turn on the TV, the mirror transforms into a state-of-the-art LED HD Smart television – with a sharp picture you and your family with love. They’re great for family rooms, above the fireplace, bedrooms – anywhere you’d like the convenience of watching television without the TV dominating the room. Sizes range from 32” to 65,” so you’re sure to find just the right size for your home.

This year when Father’s Day rolls around, take a note from young Elmesu and make life a little easier for you and your family. No chiseling required for a special gift that will give back to your entire family.

Introducing…The Glamily Room

We’re not making it up. House Beautiful listed the Glamily Room as a top trend for 2016. But what does that mean – and why should you care?


Axiom TV Lift Cabinet

Let’s face it, most families have messy kids, dogs that tramp in mud (or other crud) and all kinds of life’s little annoyances that drive most moms crazy. Yet – we all want to have a nice place to spend time with the family. You know, that picture-perfect place where the family magic happens (at least some times). For some, it’s as easy as turning to hardworking fabrics with unique silhouettes. For others, it means looking for hard-working furnishings that look great, but do double-duty as a highly-functional storage unit for all the clutter that comes with having a family in today’s electronic world.

TVLiftCabinets are perfect for a glamming up a family room because they’re gorgeous, lots of handcrafted features that instantly add value to the room. There are many styles to complement any home style – even an option to customize a unit for the perfect match. And when it’s time to declutter the space, simply use the built-in storage to safely hide all the gadgets that come with today’s living.

Whether you’re planning to give your family room a little glam this year or not, take a look at TVLiftCabinets for the perfect fit, every time.

Think spring (cleaning)

Spring has sprung.

The birds are chirping. The breezes are turning a little warmer. Green buds are starting to emerge from their long winter nap. Then you turn around and look at your cocoon, your little piece of heaven that has kept you safe and dry for the past few months. Notice anything?

If you’re like me, there’s an abundance of clutter. You know the kind. Old magazines and newspapers. DVD and CD sleeves. Piles of books. Video game clutter everywhere. Yes. It’s that time of year again – time to shake out the cobwebs and put things in order.concord_6313_3

One of my big challenges each year is finding a home for all the things you use in your family room – but don’t necessarily want to look at as you’re
passing through. That’s why I was thrilled to discover TVLiftCabinets because in a snap, the clutter disappears. Well, not exactly a snap, but with all the available storage, it just takes a few minutes to organize everything you have related to entertainment and carefully shut the doors. I also love that the flat screen television disappears into a gorgeous cabinet when we’re not watching a program.

Out-of-sight. Out-of-mind. Perfect every time, giving me plenty of time to concentrate on the beauty of the new season without stressing about my clutter.

Take the “mad” out of Basketball Madness

It’s that time of year again when all basketball fans turn to brackets to ponder, assess, strategize and contemplate which team will come out on top.

Last year, more than 23 million people tuned into the Duke/Wisconsin final game, and overall viewership was up nearly nine percent from the previous year for all the games. Whether you’re cheering on a home team or a fan favorite, it’s always a good idea to make sure your family room is ready for a few extra friends to watch the big games.

One thing that can be a problem is being able to see the television from everywhere in the room. If you have a TVLiftCabinet that’s finished on all four sides, and has a swivel bracket, you can control exactly how the television will be displayed so everyone can enjoy the show. The unit I like the most is the Crystal Pointe cabinet.

crystal_pointe_360_swivel_4471swiv_1 With beautiful mahogany veneer, it’s a stunning piece of furniture. The component drawers can be reversed so they open from the front or the back (any way you want). And with the 360-degree electric swivel, you can place the unit any where in the room. And when the games are done, you still have a beautiful focal point for your room. Talk about win/win.
