If you are looking for a new metal desk, odds are you will find desks with metal bases and drawers, but with tops made of some kind of laminate. The all-metal desks of old seem to have fallen out of favor. The McDowell Craig company however refurbishes old steel furniture. This may be an option for you, or you may want to try finding a second-hand desk in your area. A good metal desk can last for many many years with little maintenance.

Whether for a guest bathroom or a smaller sized main bathroom, if you’re feeling the pinch of having very little storage space for your cosmetics, towels, toiletries and so on, a 30 inch bathroom vanity with drawers makes a practical addition when you are considering doing some light renovations to maximize your bathroom space. Just make sure your budget allows for such an addition.

Whether at work or at home, having a desk with locking drawers can be a good way to keep personal items you don’t want others to see, use or play with, securely locked inside your desk. For greater piece of mind however, a separate home safe as a stand alone item or embedded into the floor or wall can keep your most important documents and possessions safe from theft, water damage and possibly fire as well.

Setting up a guest room that is comfortable and stylish is relatively easy with the simple addition of a twin bed and a bureau or two. But if you have been using that extra room for storage or as a home office, you could still keep the room’s functionality intact by setting up a captain’s bed, which is basically a bed with drawers. You can then use the bed storage space for whatever you need it for and still offer a comfortable sleep to friends and/or family.

Of course, there are other ways to store things under a bed. The simplest and cheapest way is to use cardboard boxes. These are not as practical as drawers, though. For one thing, dust easily accumulates under a bed. This means your boxes will get dusty, and if they are not perfectly sealed, some of this dust could get inside them.
