Four tips for creating the ultimate media room
By Payless Decor

If watching movies and TV shows is how you have fun and relax after a long day of work, chances are you'd like a space that provides all the essentials. A media room is a great choice for the whole family, but there are a few decorative tips to keep in mind.

1. Eliminate messy wires. With so many plugs, cables, cords and wires connecting your electronics, you might end up with a tangled mess that ruins the look of the space. Install them behind the walls if you can, or hide them behind furniture or in storage cabinets if possible.

2. Create optimal lighting. Nothing ruins a TV-watching session like the glare of sun on the screen. Roller shades for windows will make sure that you can see everything with no distractions.

3. Set up the perfect seating arrangement. It's important to ensure that everyone has a good view, so position your sofas and chairs in a way that's as functional as it is attractive. Each seat should be the best one in the house!

4. Keep drinks and snacks on hand. A mini fridge or a couple of shelves can ensure that munchies are always available. After all, who doesn't love eating popcorn and drinking soda during a movie?

Three ways to transform your sleeping experience
By Payless Decor

Many people consider sleeping one of their favorite activities, and why not? There's nothing better than the feeling of sinking into your pillow after a long day knowing that you'll be completely at peace for the next several hours. Unless, of course, you have trouble catching those Zs. If you're a tosser or a turner, here are three ways you can improve your sleeping experience.

1. Upgrade your window treatments. If you have blinds in place that somehow still manage to let rays of sunshine assault your eyes every morning, switching to blackout cellular shades can make all the difference, and they're easy to install. No more rising when the sun does!

2. Consider ear plugs. If you live on a busy street or sleep next to a partner who snores, a pair of earplugs is well worth a couple of bucks. Just make sure that your alarm is a loud one so you're not late to work in the morning.

3. Turn down the temperature. Sleep is more peaceful in a cool room, and you'll be able to snuggle up in your comfortable sheets and blankets. Adjust the thermostat or turn on a fan near your bed.
