Best Sectional Sofa 2017

ATGstores.com is now TheMine.com

A sectional sofa is a great choice for a room where you entertain several people at once. It provides equally comfortable seating for the whole family or all your guests. With one sofa, you can furnish a room in a streamlined way, eliminating the clutter that separate pieces of furniture would cause.

In this guide to the best sectional sofas, we’ll review the top styles that suit almost any kind of interior design and floor plan. But first, let’s quickly review some things to consider when shopping for a sectional sofa.

How to choose the best sectional sofa

Once you’ve measured the space where you want to place a sectional sofa, there are just a few more things to consider. First, if you are interested in sofas that have an L-shape, or one side longer than the other, you’ll need to know the difference between “right arm facing” and “left arm facing.”

These terms are used to describe what you see when you’re facing the sofa. “Right arm facing” means that the arm, or shorter side, is at your right hand. Knowing this one attribute will help you plan for the placement of the sofa in your space. You won’t accidentally cut off access to part of the sofa, block off a doorway, or crowd out other furniture.

Second, the placement of your sectional sofa affects, and is affected by, traffic patterns. If the sofa has a chaise, that may work better on the side of the room nearer the wall or the television. Would you prefer arms on the sofa, and if so, would you want them at both ends, or just one?

Third, is the sofa for a place that get lots of use, like a family room? If so, you may prefer more durable fabrics or leather. You may also decide on a darker color that won’t show wear as quickly as a light color.

Now, with those considerations in mind, here are the best sectional sofas.

The top sectional sofas

We’ll start with a modern design that can turn into a sleeper sofa for overnight guests.

Recommendation

Choosing the perfect sectional sofa for your home is a personal decision. It’s most likely based on the space you have available, the interior design of your home, and your budget. How you plan to use the sofa also has an impact—whether it’s primarily in a busy family room or for occasional guests in a living room.

 

If you want to add sleeping space to a room, consider getting the OPUSRFSECT Opus Convertible from Diamond Sofa since it’s easy to turn it into a sleeper bed. You could also improvise with the Telus from Beverly Hills Furniture or the sofas from Poundex (the Bobkona and the Montereal).

 

if you love top-grain leather, consider the Carlyle from Elements Fine Home Furnishing and the Italian Leather Sectional from J&M Furniture.

 

Small homes can benefit from a sectional sofa too, as is evident when you consider the Telus or the Montereal.

 

Several sectionals we reviewed would fit into most interior design schemes, but a couple stand out for their uniqueness. The coastal style Cabana Banana II and the Jackson with its cozy Southwestern pattern add regional flavor to whatever space they occupy.

 

We hope we helped you discover the sectional sofa that best fits your plans and dreams. Visit us again soon to see new reviews and guides to the top products for your home.

Best Memory Foam Mattress 2017

ATGstores.com is now TheMine.com

Memory foam mattresses provide an exceptional level of comfort while you sleep. They are excellent for people who suffer with chronic pain and stress because they relieve pressure on the body. All memory foam mattresses are naturally antimicrobial which makes them healthier, too.

When it’s time to shop for a new mattress, you already know to measure your bed frame to get the proper dimensions. But do you also take into account how thick of a mattress you need?

Selecting the proper thickness for a memory foam mattress

A memory foam mattress may be as thin as 6 inches or as thick as 14 inches. Many times, the thicker the mattress is, the softer it is. One measuring 8 to 14 inches thick is best for people who sleep on their sides so they have sufficient support and cushioning.

Besides thickness, consider the density of the mattress, too. High density means it’s firmer and more durable, medium density provides good motion isolation, and low density feels softer. The density rating for memory foam is usually 2lbs to 10lbs per cubic foot. In the case of a side sleeper, aim for a less dense mattress (under 6lbs/ft3) that curves with the shape of the body.

Features that can make a mattress much more comfortable for sleepers

Since you may be sharing a bed with another person, how much does motion isolation matter to you? This is the feature that helps muffle or suppress the movements on one part of the bed so they don’t shake or vibrate on the other side. If you don’t want to wake your partner in the middle of the night, choose a medium-density mattress. 

Another useful feature to consider is the specific type of foam used, like traditional memory foam, gel memory foam, latex foam, or cool-air foam. Each one has attributes that can make or break your good night’s sleep depending on your comfort level.

Gel memory foam is perfect for people who suffer with chronic pain because it greatly diminishes pressure on joints and bony parts. Traditional memory foam is also nice because it cradles a body in a way that encourages better blood circulation.

Latex memory foam is hypoallergenic to keep allergens at bay. And cool-air memory foam lets body heat seep away so a sleeper doesn’t get too hot during the night.

Now that you’ve had a quick overview on choosing one, let’s take a look at the top memory foam mattresses on the market to see which one will be the best for you.

Recommendation

Choosing the best mattress is essential for your well-being. Now it’s time to consider once more all the features you desire the most. While most of these mattresses are available in a wide range of sizes, the qualities that may help narrow down your choices are the materials and thicknesses.

If you’re often too hot while you sleep, you may enjoy a mattress with cooling gel. Take a look at the CorLiving, Milton Green, Home Décor, Emerald Home Furnishings, the Klaussner, or the Spring Air. If cooling gel doesn’t appeal to you, but you still want to dissipate heat for a cool night’s rest, consider the Serenia Sleep.

If you prefer to sleep on your back, or prefer a firm surface, take a look at the Home Décor, Spring Air, InnoMax, and the Strobel Combo set.

If you sleep on your side, a softer mattress is ideal. You may prefer the ones from Classic Brands or Emerald Home Furnishings, or you may enjoy the slightly firmer support of the Klaussner.

If you’re on a budget, there are some great quality memory foam mattresses at reasonable prices, like the Milton Green Stars.

Finally, if you want to create the perfect mattress for yourself, take a look at the Strobel combo set that lets you pick and choose the layers you want and the order in which you place them.

 

 

Best Office Chair 2017


Your back will thank you if you invest in a comfortable, ergonomic office chair. Those of us who sit for hours each day appreciate the contoured support an adjustable chair gives us. We’ve selected the top workplace furniture based on their price compared to their features. But before we begin the review, let’s quickly go over what makes a great chair.

Choosing the best office chair

Shopping online is great for finding discount prices, but it means you rarely get to try before you buy. There’s no way to tell for sure that an office chair will fit you perfectly if you can’t sit in it first. But here are some good rules to follow when you’re choosing seating for your home or office.

Size matters

Most people of average height are comfortable when seated about 18 to 20 inches off the floor. Look for chairs with adjustable seat heights. Also consider the chair’s width, especially if it has arms. Finally, if you have a small office, measure your space to make sure your chair will fit and be able to swivel and tilt comfortably.

Function matters

Are you looking for a light duty chair that will only get used an hour a day? Or do you spend up to 8 hours or more seated? The more time you’ll spend in a chair means the more features you’ll want. Office chairs may have a low, medium, or high back to them. This is your preference, but do consider that high backs are better if you plan to sit in that chair for several hours a day. Get lumbar support, get good padding, and get a chair that adjusts in as many ways as possible.

Material matters

If you have an air conditioned office, it may not matter to you if you have a fabric seat or a mesh back. A chair’s upholstery and structural materials will make a difference in its durability and comfort. Plus, you may want a color other than the typical black seen in many offices.

Terms of adjustment

Your new chair may have lots of adjustments available. Let’s go over some of the possibilities:

  • Seat height adjustment (often a pneumatic gas canister operated by a lever)
  • Seat slides backward and forward
  • Tilt, tilt tension, and tilt lock
  • Swivel lock
  • Armrest height adjustment
  • Armrests slide backward and forward, sideways
  • Back depth adjustment
  • Lumbar support moves up and down
  • Headrest
  • Footrest 

Insider secrets of the best chairs

There are a couple of other things to know about selecting an office chair. One is to watch for waterfall seats. These are great to have if you sit for long periods of time. They are exactly what they sound like: the front edge of the seat bottom slopes downward a bit to take pressure off the back of your legs. Two, check the seat depth if that specification is available. You can measure to make sure you fit on the chair with your back against the backrest and your knees bent comfortably at the front.

Now, let’s begin looking at the top 5 office chairs to help you find the best one for you.

Best Conference Tables

The right kind of conference table can send a message to your visitors. It’s the centerpiece of a room, a silent statement about whether your office has a hierarchy, or if you’re all in it together.

When you want the best conference table you can afford, you’ll spend a lot of time researching. We created this guide article to the top 5 conference tables to help you cut to the chase. Let’s quickly go over some easy steps to choosing a great table.

Easy steps to selecting a conference table

Size

As always when choosing furniture, you’ll need to measure things first. Rectangular, boat-shaped, and oval conference tables are the most common shapes you’ll see in an office. Here are some estimates on how big of a rectangular (oval or boat-shaped) table to buy:

Number of seats Typical table size
4 to 6 6 to 7 feet long
6 to 8 8 to 10 feet long
8 to 10 10 feet long
10 to 12 12 to 14 feet long
12 to 14 14 to 16 feet long

These estimates also depend on room size. They assume that the minimum room size for the smallest table listed here would be at least 12 by 14 feet so that both the tables and chairs fit and people have room to maneuver. Meanwhile, the average 16-foot-long table would require a space of at least 12 feet in width and 20 feet in length.

Material

Many modern offices opt for laminate furniture. Laminate veneers have the appearance of wood grain, but resist spills, scratches, and denting in a way that real wood cannot. Depending on your office’s design, you may prefer wood, glass, or metal tables. Take into account durability, especially if the table gets lot of use, or is moved a lot.

Shape

Round, square, oval, boat-shaped or tapered, rectangular…what kind of work will you do at your table? Do you need to place certain people at the ends of the table, or is it a first-come, first-seated kind of atmosphere? What is the room’s shape? Also take into account the table legs or pedestal.

Special features

Grommets are those holes cut into the table so you can neatly corral power cords and cables out of the way. This is especially nice when you have monitors or a conference call phone on the table, or have people working with electronics that need charging, a power source, or a hardwired network connection.

Best L-Shaped Desk



There is something about an L-shaped desk that makes it seem serious about getting work done. You have room to spread out your work and still have all you need close at hand. The right desk can make all the difference in your comfort, too.

As soon as you begin shopping for a desk, you see that there are many kinds available. Picking just one can be daunting. That’s why we selected the five topL-shaped desks to review them here for you. Let’s begin our guide by highlighting important features.

Important features of the best L-shaped desks

The top L-shaped deskswill have features like these:

The correct size for where it’s placed

  • The necessary amount of workspace for your needs (computer, paperwork, etc.)
  • Enough room for file storage and other accessories like a printer
  • Built from durable materials
  • Matches your décor

Before you began shopping for a desk, you probably realized you need to take a lot of measurements. Measure the space where you want to place the desk. Measure your desk chair to make sure you have enough room for it behind your desk.

Plan out the placement of your keyboard and monitor (or laptop) so that you work without straining. It’s important that you can bend your elbows 90-degrees and look straight ahead at the screen without raising or lowering your head.

Look at the items you’ll be placing on or inside your desk. How much space do you needfor accessories like your printer, your files, and other items you use while working? Is there a place for everything, plus a little extra?

Finally, think about the decorative style in the room where the desk will be. What styles and colors will fit? No matter what style you select, consider durability, too. High pressure laminate is more resistant to dents, scratches, and spills than actual wood, and it’s usually less expensive. Tempered glass looks elegant, but might support less weight limit than an all-metal desk.

When planning for your new L-shaped desk, consider these things

Here are some specific ideasabout the space you need for an L-shaped desk. Of course, the form of this kind of desk takes up either a corner spot with two walls, a wall and some open floor space, or a lot of open floor space.

Leave about 3 to 4 feet of space behind your desk for your chair so you can maneuver. If you plan to have visitor or client chairs in front of your desk, leave them the same amount of space as well. Remember that the average desktop is 30 inches high, so check if that height is best for your chair.

Best Computer Desk


Lounging on the sofa with your laptop can be comfortable for short periods, but it’s great to have a computer desk for serious work. A desk can help you stay organized with everything you need close at hand. The right size and style of computer desk, especially when combined with an ergonomic desk chair, promote good posture so you stay healthier.

When you start shopping for a desk, there are so many kinds available that it might be a little overwhelming at first to choose just one. That’s why we selected the five best computer desks and reviewed them here. We selected them by comparing their features to their cost so you can get the most value for the money. Let’s begin our guide to the top five desks by discussing what makes them the best.

Essential features of the best computer desks

The best computer desk for your home will have certain desirable features like these:

  • The right size for its location, for you, for your chair, and for the computer and peripherals like a keyboard, mouse, monitor, printer, and so on
  • Room for file storage or other accessories if needed
  • Constructed from durable materials
  • Matches your home or office décor

Before you begin shopping for a desk, it’s a great idea to take a lot of measurements first. Measure the space where you want to place the desk. Measure your desk chair if you have one already.

Figure out how high your keyboard and monitor (or laptop) need to be so that you work or play comfortably. It’s smart if you can bend your elbows 90-degrees and look straight ahead at the screen without dipping or raising your head.

Take stock of the items you’ll be placing on or in your desk. How much room do you need for your printer, your computer and accessories, and other items you use while working or gaming? Is there a place for everything, plus a little left over? Do you have space to write and work?

Finally, think about your home décor. Would a classic wooden desk match better, or would you prefer a modern minimalist piece? No matter what style you select, consider durability, too. High pressure laminate is more resistant to dents and scratches than real wood, and it’s less expensive. Tempered glass is elegant, but may have a supporting weight limit lower than an all-metal desk.

Specifics on desk space requirements

Before we go any further, here are some specific suggestions on space requirements for a desk. Most desktops are 29 to 30 inches high. See if that works for the chair you plan to use.

Leave about 3 to 4 feet of space behind your desk chair so you can maneuver around your desk. If you plan to have client chairs opposite your desk, leave them the same amount of space in front of you. (And remember to purchase a desk that has a finished front so your guests aren’t staring at bare particleboard.)

Although it’s made of glass, the Workstation is strong. The desktop can support up to 66 pounds of weight. The upper shelves can hold up to 11 pounds each, and the bottom shelf supports up to 20 pounds. The frame is made of steel and has a powder-coated surface to resist scratches and rust.

Even better, this is one of the easiest desks to assemble. You can purchase a keyboard tray for it—one is sold separately.

This simply elegant desk from TechniMobili is compact, but still has room for your files and accessories. Many people work with laptops now instead of PC towers, and this is a great laptop workspace. There’s less need for a place to store a bulky computer, although you could fit one on the floor underneath.

The two storage drawers and letter-size file folder drawer open out to their full length on their metal runners so you can access all your items. Their white interiors make it a little easier to find things if you don’t have a lot of light available.

It’s made from heavy-duty particleboard that supports weight up to 110 pounds. It’s covered with a moisture-resistant PVC laminate veneer that resembles pine wood. The legs are power-coated steel. It’s durable enough that it comes with a lifetime warranty. You’ll need to assemble it, and most users have commented that it takes a couple hours to complete.

The Sauder Shoal Creek Desk hasa classic design with storage and a workspace for a laptop or paperwork. It comes in two colors: Diamond Ash or Jamocha Wood, to better match the color scheme in your home.

The small hutch on top lets you rest a small printer, speakers, reference books, or photographs. The space under the hutch shelf lets you slide compact discs, cables, or headphones out of the way. There is a grommet hole so you can run power cords or other cables through to the rear of the desk.

There is one storage drawer (although it looks like there are two) and a letter-size file drawer underneath. Both of those pull out almost all the way on their metal runners. The safety stops keep you from spilling them onto the floor by accident. When you’re assembling the desk, you may appreciate the T-Lock drawer system that doesn’t take long to put together.

The desk itself is made from medium density fiberboard with a durable laminate finish. It measures 36.36 inches tall (with the hutch, 30 inches without) by 23.5 inches wide by 48.38-inches long.

Not every home has space for a computer desk. If that’s your case, take a look at this Muv Mini Tower Desk from Safco. It can accommodate a computer tower, a printer, keyboard and mouse, and monitor, plus lets you store a few accessories. The caster wheels make it easy to move from place to place depending on your needs. You can lock two of the wheels so the desk won’t roll while you’re using it.

If you had a laptop instead of a PC, you could make use of the 16-1/2-inch tall tower space to store books or other items. The same goes for the 19-3/4-inch wide pullout printer shelf.

One of the best features of this desk is the adjustable keyboard shelf. You can move it up or down in 1-inch increments when you mount it. It pulls out and retracts underneath the desktop. The surfaces are particleboard covered with a laminate veneer, and the frame is powder-coated steel.

Recommendation

While choosing a computer desk may not seem as important as a new sofa or a bed, it can still be a challenge to select the perfect one for your needs. If you plan to use it a lot, your new desk deserves thoughtful consideration.

If you have limited space and like the idea of a mobile desk you can stash away, take a look at the Muv Mini Tower Desk.

If you want a desk that blends into your home décor, especially if you have a modern style, consider the Safco Computer Workstation with its tempered glass desktop. You can leave yourself notes on it with a dry erase marker.

If you want storage space along with workspace, check out the Sauder Computer Desk with Organizer Hutch, the TechniMobili Computer Desk with File Storage, and the Riverside 58” Computer Desk. The Sauder and TechniMobili are ideal if you’re watching your budget.

Out of all of these models, the Riverside 58-inch Computer Desk gives you the most frills for the money. It’s the largest, it comes fully assembled, it neatly hides away lots of storage space including a locking drawer, and it functions well for PCs, laptops, or simply paperwork.
