The Modern Farmhouse Kitchen Island

     More than ever the kitchen island has become the gathering place for entertaining guests while allowing the host to prepare a healthy meal 
(or some tasty cookies!) By providing a variety of roles such as extra work space and the added bonus of hidden seating under the counter, it has become a welcome addition. The rustic farmhouse-style island has been a hot trend and is still going strong in this new year.

    One key point to consider is function. 

Islands have to work to make them earn their space. Storage, easy access, seating and height are all things to keep in mind when choosing which one is right for you.

    For one that has charm and functionality, the rustic over sized island made from hand selected solid wood, skillfully cut and stained in a variety of popular finishes. Offering a distinctive look with a double sliding barn door on one side which hides a storage shelf and two drawers. On the other side of the counter top is a compartment with four pull out stools for extra seating. (Shown Above)

    When kitchen space is at a premium, smaller islands can still be functional while adding that rustic element for a warm touch. Make the most of your limited space while providing additional prep space and seating with a long slender rustic island. One that has drop leafs on each side as well as four hidden stools along the middle.

   With a new rustic island, it will be sure to become a stylish and functional centerpiece of your home!

Choosing The Right Mattress When You're Over Forty

     A good nights sleep is essential for your mental, as well as your physical well being. As we age our bodies require different needs in the comfort level of our mattress. You can improve the quality of your life by improving the quality of your mattress. 

     Most people only shop for a mattress once every eight years, the technology in the manufacturing process is always evolving, as new developments in foams become available on the market. 

     Traditional Memory Foam has been designed so that your body is cradled while you sleep. What this does is help to increase blood circulation and reduces the amount of stress on various joints throughout the body. 

     Some mattresses offer a layer of Gel Foam along with the Memory Foam which offers an extra layer of support as well as a cooling affect for menopausal women for a good nights rest. 

     Just like traditional Memory Foam, Gel Foam will help stop motion transfer when couples sleep in the same bed and will cradle the pressure points over your body.

    There are a variety of different options to choose from in the line of Lumbar-Cool Chronic Pain Relief mattresses on the showroom floor. Depending on your personal comfort level and physical requirements. 

    The best way to differentiate between the comfort levels is to get up on the mattress and lay in the same position as you would normally sleep, resting for several minutes.

With the right mattress, you'll be waking and feeling the rejuvenating effects of sleep.

Your coffee is calling!!

Styling With Accent Pillows Like A Pro

    You don't have to dress your living room furniture like a fully loaded pizza in order to add visual impact with the use of accent pillows..

    Your color palette should consist of the solid base color on your furniture, two lighter patterned neutral and two darker patterned neutral pillows. This combination creates a pleasing visual impact for the eye without introducing an abundance of color.

   You also have the option of adding a pop of color in a different pattern, solid or shape of another accent pillow. Placing it in front of the others or in the corner if on a sectional. 

    You can choose a color that is already in use in the room, adding a pleasing appeal to the visual flow.

   Another popular option is to add a fabulous throw blanket or afghan in corresponding colors/patterns. By either placing it folded at the end of a sofa behind the accent pillows or on the end of a sectional. This helps to draw everything together for an inviting  place to sit and relax or to entertain guests.

Accent pillows are an affordable way to recreate your living area throughout the year. Giving your spirit an emotional boost-       
 Hey who couldn't use a boost now and then?

How often do you experience Numbness in your arms or shoulders when you sleep

Chronic pain numbness can cause many other symptoms to develop overtime. Now you can purchase the right mattress to offer your chronic pain relief. Try a Lumbar-Cool mattress with a softer shoulder area and along with additional support to offer the best relief in the lumbar region. This combination will take the pressure off the shoulder are and may offer the best relief.,

Why is My Arm Numb When I Wake Up?

Sleeping with your arm under your head or body can result in numbness and tingling.
Numbness in one or both hands describes a loss of sensation or feeling in your hand or fingers. Often, numbness in hands may be accompanied by other changes, such as a pins-and-needles sensation, burning or tingling. The arm, hand or fingers may feel clumsy or weak. Numbness can occur along a single nerve, or it may occur in both hands in a symmetrical pattern.

Arm numbness is most common in slide sleepers, as the sleeping position results in you lying on one arm. There is a nerve running the length of your arm called the median nerve. When compressed over a period of time, you can experience numbness. If you’re sleeping on your side, and waking up with your arm numb, there are things you can do to help avoid the problem.

The wrong pillow can exacerbate nerve problems in your arm. Sleeping with your arm under your head or body can result in numbness and tingling.

  It is common for people to wake up with numbness and tingling in their arm or hands. This is often due to sleeping with an arm beneath your body or head. When there is enough weight on your arm, it can compress nerves which results in numbness or tingling. This is often referred to having one’s arm “fall asleep”.
Arm numbness is most common in slide sleepers, as the sleeping position results in you lying on one arm. There is a nerve running the length of your arm called the median nerve. When compressed over a period of time, you can experience numbness. If you’re sleeping on your side, and waking up with your arm numb, there are things you can do to help avoid the problem.


How Can I Avoid Waking Up with My Arm Numb?

Of course, you want to avoid numbness, tingling and the associated discomfort, if possible. Be aware of your sleeping position. Is your head and neck being supported properly? Many people do not know that their pillow can have a significant impact on nerve compression in your arms. If your pillow is not supporting your head properly, keeping your neck straight, nerve compression problems can become worse.
Try using a pillow that is firm and thick enough to support your head and neck. The firmness of your mattress also is a factor in your sleeping position and comfort. Since your body does not sink far into a firm mattress, your head is naturally higher off the surface of the bed, usually necessitating a firmer, thicker pillow.
It makes sense to start experimenting with your pillow, rather than to go out and buy an expensive new mattress. Eliminating your arm numbness and tingling might be as simple as trying a different pillow.


What Should I Do When I Wake up with My Arm Numb?

Generally if you roll over to relieve the pressure, the numbness and tingling will quickly subside. Moving your hands and arm can help restore feeling in your arm after waking up. Experimenting with different pillows, mattresses and sleeping positions can help you find relief. If you experience extreme numbness or pain, or numbness not related to sleeping on your arm, you should speak with your doctor to make sure it is not something more serious.


What’s the Best Pillow?

Your best bet is always going to be a thinner, low loft pillow type. More specifically, you’re best off with a pillow that allows its fill to be added or removed. That will allow you to fine tune it to your preferences.

Everyone one is built different, so what may be good for one person may not be the case for someone else. Do your research, talk to your doctors about you symptoms and then visit
