It is the place that is easiest to make reflect your own personal style and taste since the only person you need to impress is yourself. Here are examples of the Beautiful Bedrooms you can find at Gardner-White Furniture. Which of them sounds the most like your style?

Beautiful Bedrooms: Rustic Your happy place involves cabins or cottages. You appreciate the gorgeous nature of wood grain. Your style is Rustic. You would appreciate the look of the Western Bedroom Collection that showcases the natural look of wood against a creamy white. If you are looking for a set with a darker aesthetic you should try the Mitchell Bedroom Collection.

Beautiful Bedrooms: Fabulous There is one word that describes everything about you: Fabulous. You want your bedroom to reflect this accurately. The Saxon Collection has the glitz and glamour that embodies your essence with mirrored accents and a metallic finish. Prefer a little more understated expression of your style? The Image Collection might be more your pace.

Beautiful Bedrooms: Linear You like furniture that makes a statement without being flashy. You appreciate the appeal of an Art Deco influence in your design. You are drawn to Linear designs. The Belair Collection has the mentioned subtle Art Deco influence. Then there is the Tacoma Collection that pairs long lines with tastefully curated curves to make a truly elegant design.

Beautiful Bedrooms: Unique Your style stands apart from the crowd. You seek out designs that have that certain je ne sais quoi. You are Unique. Take a look at the arches that serve as the legs of the bed in the Raven Collection. You might also enjoy the bold wave pattern design of the Franco Collection.

Beautiful Bedrooms: Plush Your style is similar to that of Fabulous above, but you focus more on a type of comforting luxuriousness. Your taste is Plush. Either the Traverse or the Grayling would be your kind of bed. They are both sumptuous without being ostentatious.

Select Your Style: Living Room Looks

Select Your Style: Living Room Looks
Shopping for a new living room look can feel a bit overwhelming with all the different styles that are available. Sometimes it is hard to even know where to be begin. Here are some style suggestions to get you started. Do any of these styles sound like you?

Living Room Look: Retro Chic
Did you watch Mad Men for decorating ideas? Do you just love clean lines and minimalist design? Your style is Retro Chic. A great way to achieve this look in your home is to combine classic collectibles (like the iconic Royal Haeger Black Panther) with new pieces of furniture designed in the Modernist vein. The Odelia Leather Sofa, Dancer Sofa, and the Sabrina Deauville Stone Sofa are examples of new pieces inspired by classic Mid-Century Modern designs.

Living Room Look: Colorful
People describe you as bold. No shade to those who prefer neutral tones, but you like everything in your life to be a little brighter. Your style is Colorful. The idea of a brown couch is just not what you are looking for (but you do know the power of utilizing accent colors). No, what you want is your sofa to be the centerpiece of the room. The Taffy Microfiber Sofa is a gorgeous shade of teal and the Fiesta Sofa is a bright red, both excellent options for those who want a little more color. You can also find a wide range of sofas in our collection that have customizable fabric options.

Living Room Look: Old School
Traditional. Classic. Old School. Your taste withstands the test of time. Furniture that doesn’t need a lot of flowery description. Leather. Wood. Quality. Imperial. Tiffany. Venice.

Living Room Look: Rococo
You could also describe your style as Baroque, but let’s face it, Rococo is much more fun to say. You love ornate decoration and extravagant details. Your ideal couch will pair perfectly with a gorgeous Persian rug or some other similarly detailed carpet. The Grant Sofa, Layton Delia Chenille Sofa, and the Weslynn Sofa are all examples of furniture pieces with an extra bit of flair suited to your tastes.

Living Room Look: Cosmopolitan
You either dream of loft living or already have found your ideal loft space. Cosmopolitan style these days is a marriage of industrial and modern designs. The furniture that is to your taste needs to equally look at home with a backdrop of exposed brick or floor-to-ceiling windows. Your decorating style is most likely minimalist, so you truly use your furniture as statement pieces. You are drawn to pieces like the Costello and the Desmond.

Adjustable Bed Buying Guide: Split vs. Divided King

Let's say this is a King Size mattress.Selecting the right bed can feel like a Herculean task at times with all the different choices that exist. Adjustable beds are a great option for people who are looking for relief from various health issues or just for an extra level of comfort. Adjustable beds have remotes that allow you to raise and lower your head and feet to suit your needs. King size adjustable beds have the most flexibility in adjustment options, and if you are thinking of getting a king size adjustable bed then you now have the choice (with certain manufacturers) between Split or Divided.

This is how a Split King is set up.What is a Split King?
King-sized beds are, at the risk of stating the obvious, are quite large. Mattresss are flexible. Foundations, however, are not. To get the base foundation inside your home, whether it is standard or adjustable, it comes in two parts that sit side-by-side under the mattress. A Split King adjustable bed therefore allows each side of the bed to move independently, so it is ideal for people who have different sleep needs. The foundations can also be synced together if you don’t need or want the sides to be adjusted separately.

This is how a Divided King is set up.What is a Divided King?
Until recently it didn’t matter if you wanted independent adjustment or for both sides of your bed to move up and down together, you needed to order a Split King. For people who prefer both sides of the bed to adjust in tandem there is now the option to buy a Divided King. A Divided King has a foundation that is still made up of two parts, but in this case it goes under the head and foot of the bed. This set-up is more efficient than a synced-up Split King, it removes the redundancy of having two separate motor systems to move your bed, that means a lower cost for you.

Conclusion
If you prefer independent adjustment from your partner then a Split King is what you are looking for. If separate movement isn’t necessary then you can save money with a Divided King. Have further questions or want to start shopping for your adjustable bed now? The bedding experts here at Gardner-White can help you figure out exactly what mattress and base system works best for your budget and needs.

Currently, we carry two different adjustable bed models with the Divided King option: the Serta® Motion Perfect® III and the Serta® Motion Custom™ II.
