The Alma Queen Storage Bed

The average person spends roughly 26 yrs sleeping in their life which equates to 9,490 days or 227,760 hours. Surprisingly, we also spend 7 years trying to get off to sleep. That’s 33 years or 12,045 days spent in bed. It would seem then, that the most important purchase in your household should be your bed – yet many barely spend a few hundred pounds on a decent bed and mattress.

Too small for the type of sleeping style you and your partner have (Starfishes take note!) too high or low depending on the needs of your family or pets – the wrong kids of slatting or springing that does not provide enough support. If the car, which provides you with protection and support is a worthy investment piece – why not your bed? Our top pick below from modern furniture toronto experts is the storage bed (with headboard) which provides a deeply stylish addition to a large bedroom but also provides neat and organised storage for all your winter gear or things that need to be “away” but not in the attic or wherever.

This bed features a headboard with rounded corners and a cushioned panel that makes it even softer and more inviting. The headboard is also tilted back slightly for optimal reading comfort. Includes 2 shelves mounted to the headboard. As an option, The base can be configured with four drawers, perfect for storing bedding and covers. Made of veneer and solid birch.


Other than our beds, the sofa is the other key place of comfort and relaxation that deserves to be invested in. You’ll end up paying more in the long run if you opt for cheap, structurally poor choices that don’t suit your “relaxing” style and level of comfort required. Modular sofas are of particular attraction these days – as you can add to it when you need to grow or change seating amounts. Perhaps as a young couple you have a small, two seat option but you have more friends coming over (since lockdown) and you need a couple more spaces to be able to socialise. Or you have a growing family and for each new kid you get a new block for your sofa! You can make L shapes, U shapes or even just one long strip – the choice is entirely yours.

Dining Table

The chairs you can change up whenever you get bored or are redesigning the colours/theme of the room but a good table is quite literally worth its weight in gold! Some key factors to consider when choosing a table include;

  • Can it be taken apart and stored/moved?
  • Is the material right for your usage? – eg glass and children aren’t a good mix
  • How many people can it seat comfortably (without nudging elbows!)
  • Is it the right size for the room? Consider also you may move house with such an investment piece so it needs to be flexible for varying room sizes.
