Use this as your guide for how to include it in the rooms of your home. Whether you use a little of it or a lot is up to you.

In order to showcase this material at its finest, you need to create a neutral background that allows the warm metal to really draw the eye. Doing so will also lend an additional modern tone to the space.

From reports on insufficient sleep by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to hundreds of customer ratings and reviews, we were extremely thorough in our research. Ironically, we did lose quite a bit of sleep over this one. Comparing mattresses can feel like comparing apples to oranges, since everyone has a finely tuned preference for what sends them off to snoozeville. Some want to sleep like Aslan on the stone table in Narnia others prefer to feel like they're sinking in a vat of quicksand.

You'll still create a focal point, but it won't require hours of labor. On the opposite end of the spectrum from the fluid feel of fabric is the fixed structure of metal. This certainly doesn't mean it is without beauty a metal headboard can have a romantic feel, such as a wrought-iron gate with artificial flowers intertwined.

The living room is often one of the most-used rooms in a home, so when redecorating or remodeling think about how you can maximize utility and comfort. And whether the focus of the room is a home entertainment system or a functional space for conversation, a good way to anchor the room is by using a focal point. Sometimes your living room will have one already, like a fireplace and mantle, but if not you can create your own.

In fact, it's probably the easiest challenge to overcome when planning a shared room. Your first step is to select an underlying color palette for the main elements of the room (walls, rug, furniture) that is gender neutral…and, if they're old enough to chime in, that each sibling gives the thumbs up. Color combos such as white and grey, turquoise and white or a mix of primary colors work well for both boys and girls.

From third-party and customer reviews to sleep and health statistics, we covered all the bases. The difficulty in any review like this one is that every person has a unique preference. For example, some people are side sleepers, while others sleep on their back, and there are specific types of pillows to facilitate each type of sleeper.

Rather than hiding clutter away behind closed doors, as in more minimalist kitchens, in this school of style it's often put on display. Open shelving is one way to achieve this look. If the idea of constantly dusting plates and bowls seems like too much of a chore, display cabinets offer similar visual impact with some protection from the elements. Hanging pots and pans over the stove or above a kitchen island is also a great way to organize in style.

If a monochromatic look seems a little too intense for your home, there's an easy way to brighten up the space while adding more visual interest: Just add natural materials such as wood, stone or metal. Choose one or incorporate a variety. While these three may be the most common, other natural elements can also help round out your bathroom design. Try to let as much natural light into the room as possible; if you have control over the home's layout, consider making the bathroom a room with a view. On a smaller scale, try incorporating greenery into the space.
