The first time I saw a really fun kids' bed was in the 1980s on the show Silver Spoons starring a very young Ricky Schroder and Jason Bateman.

A wall mural is a simpler way to put hot rods into context. Let you child count down the years until that driver's test with a mural of your hometown (in this case Atlanta). Canopy beds were invented to keep out cold drafts hundreds of years ago and royalty enjoyed them. Today they are still fit for a little princess. Nautical style can give bunk beds a boat‐cabin feel; a porthole window and marine lights add to the look. Bunk beds can take on all kinds of structures. Secret treehouse fort meets sleepy time in these tucked‐away bunk beds.

Make the most of a breakfast nook by installing a complete compartment that keeps diners out of the way of the cooking action in the kitchen. Additionally those on a budget will benefit from copying the style of the boxed‐in nook pictured here. Inexpensive wood can be painted white to make the area bright.

Another way to mix up a set of matching chairs is to re‐cover the seats in an array of different fabrics.

For this reason these tables are great for families with children – you never have to worry about whether your brood is unwittingly or even intentionally marking the table. The damage if minor will only become part of the beauty of the piece. That said it's worth protecting your table with a hard wax polish which should be applied about twice a year.
