Choosing the Perfect Kids Bed

When choosing a bed for your child’s bedroom, it’s sometimes hard to know where to start. When purchasing a bed for an adult, the main concerns are generally style and durability; however, when it comes to kids beds, there are few additional points to consider. At Furniture Liquidators, we’re here to help. Next time you’re in need of a new kids bed, keep these three tips in mind to simplify the shopping process. With these simple tips and our extensive selection of kids bedroom furniture, you will be able to find the perfect kids bed in no time!

Choose the Right Size

When building a kids bedroom, many people automatically think to purchase a Twin size bed and mattress. While a Twin bed is a perfect fit for a young child, if your child’s age is in the double digits or they will soon be approaching their teens, it may be time to switch to a Full bed. While a Twin bed has dimensions of 38” x 74,” a Full bed has dimensions of 53” x 74,” which is a significant step up in terms of space and comfort. Once you make the switch to a Full bed, your child will be set for the years and growth spurts that lie ahead.




Think About Your Child’s Interests

When choosing a bed for your child’s bedroom, consider their likes and interests. For example, if your child loves fairytales, they will love one of our formal poster beds which feature delicate colors and stylish design accents fit for a princess. If your child is an avid reader, then you may want to consider purchasing one of our bookcase storage beds, which will enable them to keep their favorite books close at hand. If you choose a bed that reflects your child’s interests, your child will get excited about their bedroom décor—and who knows, you might even be able to convince them to make their bed!



Consider a Bunk Bed or Trundle Bed


Just because you have two children sharing one room, that doesn’t mean their bedroom is destined to be cramped and cluttered. If you have limited space to spare, pass on buying two separate beds, and instead consider purchasing one of our bunk beds or trundle beds. Both options will help you save space while also providing your children with the individual room that they need.



When you’re ready to purchase a new kids bed, stop by Furniture Liquidators, where you will find an abundance of options that your child is sure to love. You can visit us in Louisville, KY or at any one of our 13 Kentuckiana locations.

Helpful Mattress Maintenance Tips

Sleep is important to your health and your overall well-being, and in order to get a good night’s sleep you need to have a comfortable and supportive mattress. When you invest in a quality mattress, it can last as long as 8-10 years, assuming you treat it with care. Here are a couple of helpful tips to ensure that your mattress remains in tip-top shape for years to come.



Air Out Your Mattress Regularly

Humidity can attract dust mites and allergens, so it’s a good idea to air out your mattress on a regular basis. When you air out your mattress, you should remove all bedding and allow your mattress to breathe. If possible, open up your windows and expose your mattress to sunlight, which will help rid your mattress of moisture and bacteria. Airing out your mattress on a weekly basis will prevent allergen buildup and help keep your mattress dry and fresh.


Rotate Your Mattress

Rotating your mattress a few times a year can significantly lengthen its lifespan. When you rotate your mattress, it will evenly distribute the pressure your body places on it, which will help to prevent sagging and body indentations. Mattress rotation can be done to both innerspring and memory foam mattress, and you should aim to do it at least once every three months.


No Roughhousing

As fun as it may be, jumping on a mattress can cause considerable damage. Putting an extreme amount of pressure on a mattress can cause it to become misshapen and it may even cause permanent damage to the interior mattress springs. Roughhousing can even ruin your box spring or mattress base! Just remember, mattresses were made for sleeping, so it’s best to keep it that way.

When it comes time to purchase a new mattress, come to Furniture Liquidators, where you will find an extensive selection of high quality mattresses from brand names you can trust. You can visit us in Fairdale, KY or at any one of our 13 locations. If you care for your mattress using these three simple tips, you can protect your investment and enjoy the benefits of your mattress far into the future.

Shopping for a Reclining Sofa

When it comes to living room furnishings, there is nothing more luxurious than a reclining sofa. Soft, spacious, and comfortable—a reclining sofa will undoubtedly make your living room more welcoming and inviting for your visitors and guests. If you’re looking to update your living room with this versatile furniture piece, follow these three tips to ensure you end up with the best sofa that meets your needs.

Give Your Sofa a Test Drive


Not all reclining sofas are the same. Besides differences in material and style, there can also be significant differences in terms of comfort level and degree of recline. There is no better way to discover what sofa is right for you than to try it out yourself, firsthand. If you stop by our Louisville, KY furniture showroom, you will have the freedom to try out any of our reclining sofas and test their capabilities. We give you a chance to sit back, relax, and find the sofa that is right for you.

Consider Your Space and Sofa Placement

When assessing the space where you plan to place your reclining sofa, take into consideration the amount of room your sofa will take both in the stationary and reclining position. Some sofas take up a substantial amount of space when reclining back so placing it in a tight space could seriously limit your reclining capabilities. That said, it should come as no surprise that placing a reclining sofa up against a wall is an absolute no-no.

Think About Sofa Color and Design


When you’ve taken all the time and effort to find a comfortable sofa that fits in your living space, it’s important that you don’t forget to consider style. It doesn’t matter how lovely your new sofa may be, if it isn’t coordinated with the rest of your living room furniture, it will ruin your entire room’s décor. Consider the color scheme and furniture style already established in your living room before settling on your final purchase.
