Kid going off to college? Here’s how to shop for their bedding needs




The moment you have been preparing for – and dreading in equal measure – is finally here. Your child is flying to another city or country to join college. The moment of parting is still a few days away, and your days are taken up in a flurry of preparing your child for the move, getting their paperwork and baggage in order.

Amidst the rush of preparing your child for new experiences, you must be hard at work, reminding them to eat their meals on time, not rely too much on junk food, and keep healthy habits; chief among them being to sleep well. After all, in the rush of new friendships, assignments and newfound independence, it’s necessary to take the time to recharge. The best way to guarantee this, of course, is by arranging the right kind of bedding for them, so they can be comfortable while resting.

You’ve been meaning to buy new bedding for your child for their fresh new start. The choices are immense, but you can’t overload their trunk.      You need to ensure they have      just enough to use comfortably without running out of their stocks. There must be extras so that they don’t have to think about laundry day and get stressed about it. You also need to buy bedding that will last all the years of their college without the need to buy more. To achieve these goals, here’s      how you can shop for what they need without wasting too much time:

*What to keep in mind as you shop for bed linen.

The choices in bedding today are vast, and it’s easy to get lost in the various collections. That is why it’s important to make a note of a few things before you begin your shopping expedition. The main point is to make note of the weather conditions of where your child is headed. If it is a tropical location, where the temperatures run on the higher side, you can look at dohars, bedsheets with moisture-wicking technology and more. but if it’s a colder area, it’s better to consider comforters and quilts of a thicker consistency. It’s also a good idea to invest in temperature-regulating bedsheets and quick-drying towels.

Since kids are often impatient about making their beds, it’s also a good idea to consider fitted bedsheets, since they are very convenient to use. Additionally, you should also consult the colour theory and pick the bed linen accordingly. For example, if your child is worried about leaving home for the first time, get cheery colours like yellow or orange that will keep them feeling positive.

* Online shopping is faster and more cost-effective. At a time when the Coronavirus continues to rage around the country, it is also safer than going to an offline store. Besides, there is no time to run to the stores to buy what you need. While it feels good to feel the product before purchase, you can be assured that the products you see in the offline stores will be readily available in the SPACES online portals as well. There is even the added advantage of discovering exciting deals and offers for all your favourite bedding sets with the convenience of doorstep delivery and multiple payment options.

Start with bedsheets in single sizes, with matching pillow covers and comforters. Single comforters are best for a single bed – double comforters will be too large both for their bag and bed. Don’t insist on your child taking their kids’ comforter from home to college, unless they don’t mind doing so. About three or four bedsheets and two single comforters should suffice.

* We suggest looking at comparable brands having similar products on offer before making a choice. This is easily done online – you can open multiple tabs for different online stores and compare the products on various factors: price, size, fabric, pattern, thread count, etc. You should of course pay special attention to the quality of the bedding you’re looking to buy. Afterall, the other factors pale in comparison to getting a product that suits your needs best and lasts for a longer time. This is where the product range from SPACES shines bright. They include bed and bath linen made from organic cotton and through sustainable processes, so you can rest assured that you’re buying the finest for your child. These products also have the added advantage of becoming softer with each wash, making them a great investment for the long run.

It’s also important to check the reviews posted by other buyers, as it will give you a better idea of the actual usage of the bed linen in question. This will tell you which brand is trustworthy and has the best bedding for your needs.      You can also check    probable delivery dates from these websites, since you are already strapped for time.

* Check on delivery and payment options.

Since you have less time to shop and you still need to help your child get their belongings together and pack their trunk, you must ensure that the bed and bath linen you buy are delivered to your address well in time for their departure. Check the estimated delivery time for the product by keying in your area PIN code in the website’s designated field. The site checks the code and tells you if delivery is possible, and the estimated time for delivery. You might also check if it would be faster to pick up the purchase from the brands nearest offline store. We recommend using digital payment modes to pay instead of paying cash at your doorstep in the interest of your safety.

We hope you have a pleasant experience preparing your little one for their future ahead. With the right bedding, they’ll be on their way to a well-rested college experience, so they can fill their days exploring and learning more. Keep the above points in mind as you carry on with your shopping and visit SPACES for the finest selection of bed and bath linen, that’s easy to care for.

Designing Secure Commercial Spaces Without Compromising Aesthetics




In the realm of commercial design, security and aesthetics often seem like opposing forces. Business owners and designers alike grapple with the challenge of creating spaces that not only captivate and inspire but also ensure the safety and security of assets and occupants. The good news is that integrating security features into commercial spaces without sacrificing visual appeal is entirely achievable. This blog post will delve into innovative design strategies that harmonise security with aesthetics, including a look at the best deadlocks for front doors in Australia, ensuring your commercial space is both beautiful and fortified.

Embracing Technology for Seamless Security

Modern technology offers a plethora of options for discreet yet effective security measures. For instance, advanced surveillance systems can be integrated into the architectural design in a way that they blend seamlessly with the environment. Smart locks and biometric access controls offer robust security without the clunky hardware, maintaining a sleek and modern aesthetic. Implementing these technologies not only elevates the security level of your commercial space but does so without disrupting its design flow.

Strategic Use of Materials and Design Elements

The choice of materials and design elements plays a crucial role in balancing security and aesthetics. High-strength materials such as tempered or laminated glass, for example, offer excellent security without compromising on the visual openness that glass provides. Similarly, incorporating natural barriers like decorative boulders or planters can serve as subtle physical deterrents while enhancing the space’s visual appeal.

Lighting: A Dual-Purpose Tool

Lighting is another powerful tool that serves both aesthetic and security purposes. Well-planned lighting can highlight architectural features and create a welcoming atmosphere while ensuring visibility and deterring unauthorised access after hours. Motion-sensor lighting, in particular, can be a discreet addition that enhances security without detracting from the design.

The Role of Deadlocks in Aesthetic Security

A critical aspect of securing any commercial space is the choice of locks, especially for front doors which are the primary entry and exit points. Deadlocks offer a high level of security, making them an essential feature for commercial spaces. However, selecting the right deadlock doesn’t mean you have to settle for a utilitarian look. Today, the market offers a variety of deadlock designs that complement any aesthetic, from modern minimalist to classic elegance. For those in Australia, choosing the best deadlocks for front doors involves considering both the security features and how the lock’s design integrates with your commercial space’s overall look.

Collaboration Between Security Experts and Designers

Achieving a balance between security and aesthetics often requires a collaborative approach. Security experts and interior designers need to work hand in hand from the early stages of the design process. This collaboration ensures that security measures are not afterthoughts but are integrated into the design in a way that complements the space’s aesthetic appeal.

Ready to get started?

Designing secure commercial spaces without compromising aesthetics is not only possible but essential in today’s world. Remember, the goal is to integrate security seamlessly into the design, enhancing the user experience and ensuring peace of mind for both business owners and visitors. With thoughtful planning and collaboration, your commercial space can be a testament to the harmony that can exist between security and aesthetics.
