The school year has not even ended here in Minnesota but we are busily preparing back to school information for College Life Magazine.

Our loft beds ideal for college dorm rooms are being featured in the magazine. Did you know that you can get an extra high or extra long loft bed in twin, full and even queen sizes? Not only are they the best way to maximize space, but very budget friendly too.

This Becks Queen Size Loft Bed offers lots of sleeping space and wow – with a whopping 2000 pound weight capacity. It is 71″ high. Since it is a queen size its a super space saver allowing room for almost all essentials right under the loft: study, storage and chilling.

Check out our huge selection of extra long bunk beds for the college-bound dorm life.

 

We are looking for tips from our readers on decorating dorm rooms – a first home away from home.

Up the Wall…. but where are the ropes and harness?

REI take a look at this Alice In Wonderland-inspired climbing wall located in Toyko’s posh Omotesando Shopping Center.

Notice the unusual elements such as baroque picture frames, mirrors, deer heads, birdcages, and flower vases as grappling fixtures which forces fitness to juxtapose with style.

This wall caught our attention while studying plans for mini climbing walls for young children.

Try Before You Buy

Most folks find it awkward but you really do have to lie down and give the mattress a try before you buy. Be sure to fully stretch out or curl up in your favorite sleeping position. Next, roll from side to side. Then sit up as if you’re reading in bed. It is important also to sit on the edge of the mattress to test its firmness. If the store employees give you a standing ovation, you have possibly provided their best entertainment of the day. A mattress purchase is a long term investment so you have done yourself a favor too.

We find that people are constantly confused with all of the different mattress sizes. Here is a simple explanation that we hope you will find helpful.

Twin or Single Size Mattress

A twin or single mattress is 39” wide x 74” long. This is the smallest mattress size available.  It’s ideal for children who have outgrown their crib or toddler bed. Also ideal for adults who have small bedrooms.  This size is commonly used for daybeds, bunk beds, dorm rooms, or a small guest bedroom. It’s not a recommended size for those sleeping with a partner.

XL Twin Size Mattress

An XL twin mattress is 6” longer than a twin size but same width. Ideal for children who are taller or for smaller size bedrooms. This is also great for tall adults who do not have room for a wider bed. Two XL twin mattresses make up the same dimensions as one king size mattress.

Full or Double Size Mattress

A full or double size mattress is 54” wide x  80” long which is the same length as a twin mattress but it is 15” wider. Full-size mattresses are a good choice for single sleepers who like to sprawl out or for couples who have a small bedroom.

XL Full or Double Size Mattress

An XL full bed might not be a common size, but it is a versatile one. A full extra long mattress measures 54″wide x  80″ long. It is just as long as a queen or king, but because of its narrower shape, it will fit better in smaller rooms. It is a great choice for teens or adults who want plenty of room to sleep but don’t want to sacrifice space in their bedroom.

Queen Size Mattress

A queen mattress measures 60” wide x  80” long. It is both wider and longer than a full size mattress.  Often preferred by a single person who really likes lots of extra sleeping space. It is the most popular size in the United States for couples. To comfortably fit a queen size mattress in your bedroom, it is recommended that your bedroom be at least 10’L x 10’W.

King Size Mattress

A king size mattress measures 76″ wide x 80″ long. It is the same length as a queen size but 16″ wider.  Couples requiring extra space will find the king size perfect. Families co-sleeping with young children or pets prefer this size. To comfortably fit a King size mattress in your bedroom, it is recommended that your bedroom be at least 12’W x 12’W.

California King Size Mattress

A California king size mattress is 4” longer in length but narrower by 4” than a standard king. It is extremely spacious for active sleepers or couples sleeping with young children or multiple pets. To comfortably fit a California King size mattress in your bedroom, it is recommended that your bedroom be at least 12’W x 12’L.

Crib Mattress

A crib mattress is  29” wide x 52” long. These mattresses are designed for baby cribs to be used by newborns to toddlers. They are designed until a child is about 18 months old or reaches 3 feet in height or begins climbing out of their crib. A firm mattress is necessary to prevent a newborn’s face from sinking in to avoid an increased risk of SIDS.

Try Before You Buy

Most folks find it awkward, but you really do have to lie down and give the mattress a try before you buy. Be sure to fully stretch out or curl up in your favorite sleeping position. Next, roll from side to side. Then sit up as if you’re reading in bed. It is important also to sit on the edge of the mattress to test its firmness. If the store employees give you a standing ovation, you have possibly provided their best entertainment of the day. A mattress purchase is a long term investment so you have done yourself a favor too.

 

autism-toysDoth your playroom runneth over with toys?

You are not alone if you find yourself suffering the post-holiday buried in toys syndrome.

Take advantage of this time to do some decluttering and organizing your kiddos toys.

Make room for the newly acquired toys by playing a game of lining up and counting all of the new toys. Next, have your child match each new toy up with one that is no longer being played with.  An excellent opportunity for teaching your children a lesson in sharing exists here. Explain how happy some other children will be to receive the toys and how they will be new toys for the other children to play with.

If resistance is encountered,  ask your child to think about the last time a particular toy was played with, and if it’s been over six months, “wouldn’t it be nice to let another child play with it?”

There are charities all across the country that collect toys for various organizations. Almost everyday Totally Kids fun furniture and toys receives new and gently used toys donated for Twin Cities families affected by Autism. If you are in the Minneapolis St. Paul area please drop off any toys that you can spare.

We would like to express gratitude to all of those who have so generously donated toys over the last few years. Thank you!
