The Best Features of a Changing Table

The arrival of a baby requires many purchases—not the least of which is a changing table! Your new baby is going to go through a lot of diapers, and having the right handmade furniture piece for the task can prevent this chore from becoming a safety hazard. But which features should you look for when shopping for handcrafted changing tables? These elements should play an important role in your decision: Sturdiness — You don’t want to try changing your baby’s clothes on a wobbly table. Our handcrafted changing tables are made from solid wood, eliminating this common worry. The Right Height — No parent wants to bend over at an uncomfortable angle to change their child’s diaper. Make sure your handmade furniture piece has a table height that will be comfortable for you to work with. Don’t be afraid to test out different heights before you buy! Storage — Having clean diapers, baby powder, and other items easily available can help the changing process go much quicker and easier. Choose handcrafted changing tables that offer a storage area where you can get these items without leaving your child unsupervised. When combined with a quality changing pad, these features will ensure your baby’s safety—and your peace of mind. Versatility-  Many of the changing table we sell convertible and can be flipped to be used as a dresser after you no longer have use for the changing table! This feature allows you to get good use of your...
Nursery Checklist!

Nursery Checklist!

Are you ready for a new baby? Shopping for handmade furniture and other baby products can be somewhat stressful, but when you know what your nursery needs, this process won’t be hard at all. Get ready for baby by purchasing the following items for your nursery: Crib — Cribs are the most basic accessory for any nursery. After all, your child needs a place to sleep! Only consider cribs that adhere to federal safety standards, such as having all slats less than 2 & 3/8 inches apart and a top rail that is 26 inches or higher above the mattress. The mattress itself should fit tightly and only use fitted sheets.  Changing Table — Handcrafted changing tables are another must-have for your nursery. Choose a sturdy handmade furniture piece that will be comfortable to work with while also providing adequate storage space. It will be much easier to change your baby’s diaper when everything you need is stored conveniently nearby. Baby Monitor — A baby monitor is the easiest way to check in on your child during the night. Modern video monitors give you a complete picture of what is going on so you know when your child needs help. Rocking Chair — Rockers and gliders are the perfect seating solution for feeding or calming your baby. The gentle motion has a soothing effect on your child, while also helping you stay comfortable as you care for your...

How Does Your Mattress Affect Your Health?

How Does Your Mattress Affect Your Health?

Of all the handmade furniture pieces you could put in your home, few get more use than your Holmes County bedroom furniture. But is the place where you get eight hours of rest each night providing the comfort you need? It turns out the quality of the mattress you use with your Ohio wooden bedsets can have a direct impact on your well-being.  It makes sense that an uncomfortable mattress would make it hard to sleep well at night. Unfortunately, this can contribute to a wide range of wellness issues, from back and joint pain to increased stress from a lack of sleep. The longer you let these problems go on, the worse they can get—and the more likely you are to develop even worse side effects.  If an uncomfortable mattress is to blame for your poor sleep, buying a new comfortable mattress could make a huge difference for your health. By improving your sleep quality, a new mattress can reduce stress, help you avoid unhealthy weight gain, and even help you live longer!  At Swiss Valley Furniture, we offer several mattress varieties that fit our Ohio wooden bedsets. Built with high-quality and anti-allergenic components, our Quiet Night, Perfect Choice, and Elite mattress series offer varying levels of firmness to help you find the right fit for your sleep habits. When you find a comfortable mattress that allows you to get a good night’s sleep, you’ll be happy, healthy, and refreshed in the...
Feature: Bunk Beds

Feature: Bunk Beds

When you have limited space and a growing family, setting up comfortable sleeping arrangements can seem like a challenge. But when you purchase bunk beds for your children, you can completely transform the way you use your home. Here’s how these Ohio wooden bedsets can benefit your family.  Naturally, one of the most noticeable advantages of these wood furniture pieces is that they open up additional floor space in your children’s bedroom. This creates extra room for games or other furniture pieces, ensuring that the room doesn’t feel too cramped. Better yet, this allows you to use another room as a home office or den, when it would normally serve as an extra bedroom. Some of the Ohio wooden bedsets offered by Swiss Valley Furniture take this space-saving idea a step further by integrating study desks into the bunk bed design—helping you make even more of your children’s limited space. If your kids are feeling really creative, they can even turn their bunk bed into an impressive fort for a great rainy day activity.  Bunk beds aren’t just great for young families. Many grandparents find that these wood furniture pieces are a great guest bedroom solution. Rather than needing to have several rooms set aside for when the grandkids come for a visit, a bunk bed can make staying at grandma’s a fun sleepover experience.  With their impressive flexibility and space sharing, your family can’t go wrong with these Ohio wooden...
