After a long day of juggling work, children, and pets, or just handling the rigors of everyday life, the bedroom should be a peaceful retreat for optimum rest, relaxation, and good sleep. If your bedroom is overdue for a makeover, consider purchasing new bedroom furniture. New furniture can turn a drab room into a comfortable, luxurious suite in your Richmond County home or apartment.
Whether you shop for new bedroom furniture online or walk around a local mattress store and furniture showroom like Furniture To Go, you need to do some planning beforehand. You want to select furniture that is not only aesthetically pleasing but also meets other criteria.
You need to know the size of the bedroom. Seeing bedroom furniture in a Richmond County showroom may look different than it will look in your actual bedroom layout. You want to be sure that the size of the furniture does not overpower the room by being too big. You also don’t want to buy too small bedroom furniture prices that will not look proportional to a larger room. Taking precise measurements will ensure that the balance of furniture and room space works well. It’s equally important to take note of bedroom doorways, slanted walls, windows, and other tight spaces.
Based on the dimensions of the room, what are all the room configurations that you are considering? The answer to that question will help determine how many pieces of furniture you will fit. You also need to take into consideration how many people are sharing the room? If you are two people, you will want two nightstands, a full dresser, and an armoire type piece of furniture to provide enough drawer space to hold clothing. If you like to read in bed or watch television, consider adding in a comfy upholstered chair or rocking chair to your bedroom space. If you’re always looking for more storage, some bed frames come with built-in storage or the frame is positioned high enough for sliding storage boxes underneath.
The furniture experts at Furniture To Go can help you select the right amount of bedroom furniture pieces to match the size of your bedroom in Richmond County.
There are many different types of bed frames. They can be traditional standard frames that hold a box spring and mattress. Some newly designed bed frames only require a mattress with no box spring. Perhaps you prefer the look of a sleigh bed, platform bed or a bed topped with a dreamy canopy? There are so many options so do your homework ahead of visiting a furniture showroom. You can browse online or look through magazines. That will help you narrow the choice.
If you sleep alone, a twin bed is sufficient unless you prefer a wider surface area. In that case, a full size bed, also known as a double bed, would probably be a better solution. If you are a couple, a queen size bed is ideal. A queen size bed offers ample space to rest comfortably, while still being small enough to fit adequately in a typical size bedroom. If you are lucky enough to have an oversized bedroom, consider purchasing a king or California king size bed.
Here are typical mattress sizes:
If your current mattress is relatively new, you can keep it and use it with the new bedroom furniture as long as you select the same size bed frame. If you’re not sure if your mattress can be reused, consider the age of the mattress. A mattress lasts 7-10 years on average. Replace the mattress if it has yellowed or has discolorations, you see lumps or sagging, it causes you back pain, or it’s just not comfortable for sleeping. Furniture To Go is a furniture and mattress store that sells top brand mattresses in Richmond County including Jalen, Ashley Furniture, and FOA East.

Materials can be either solid wood, laminate, medium or high density fiberboard, particle board, veneer, metal, marble, glass and more.

Mariners Harbor is a neighborhood located in the northwestern part of New York City’s borough of Staten Island. It is bordered by Lake Avenue to the east, Forest Avenue to the south, Richmond Terrace to the north, and Holland Avenue to the west. The northwestern section of Mariners Harbor is often known as Arlington.
The neighborhood is named for its 19th-century harvesting of oysters and other seafood products from the Kill Van Kull, which forms the neighborhood’s northern border (Elm Park and Port Ivory lie to the east and west, respectively, while Graniteville is to the south). Later developments included shipbuilding, repair and marine salvage work. Fishing activity declined due to pollution during the 20th century. The Mariners Harbor Yacht Club remains as a reminder of the community’s maritime past. Erastina was the first rail station built here in 1886 and named for Erastus Wiman, the promoter who helped the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad to enter New York via Staten Island. Vacant land nearby was used for staging Buffalo Bill’s “Wild West Show”, generating over 10,000 additional passengers from the St. George Ferry Terminal over the new rail line. Erastina became Mariners Harbor soon after Wiman fell from public favor due to scandal and bankruptcy. There are three other stations along the North Shore branch of the Staten Island Railway at Lake Avenue, Harbor Road, and Arlington. Passenger service on this line was discontinued on March 31, 1953. An important rail customer was Arthur Dreyer & Sons Lumber and Coal Co. near Union Avenue bridge. Remnants of the site are visible today by the coal silos. The western portion of this line was rebuilt, and is now used by freight trains traveling between New Jersey and the Howland Hook Marine Terminal in Port Ivory.

Mariners Harbor was home to large shipping and dry dock companies in the first half of the 20th century, including Bethlehem Steel, which owned a considerable portion of land in the area with headquarters along the waterfront on Richmond Terrace across from Mersereau Avenue and Brewers Dry Dock. Bethlehem Steel built United States Navy Destroyers during World War II. Currently, two tugboat companies—K-Sea and McAllister—operate in the area as do a number of smaller dry docks, Great Lakes Dredge and Dock, and Mariners Harbor Cargo Terminal. The John McAllister tug boat was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.
The West Shore Little League and Public School 44 also are part of the neighborhood. The former Cross Paper Plant sits on the edge of the area and now is used as rental space for other small business. In recent years a large amount of shopping has been built up in stretch of Forest Avenue from Lake Avenue to South Avenue, revitalizing the area and bringing new traffic concerns.
