Fast furniture is dead – Let Thuma upgrade your bedroom furniture

The brand to turn to for upgrading your bedroom space: Thuma

For the past few decades, several brands have revolutionized how we shopped for, received, and assembled our home furniture. The sleek-looking designs were affordable and convenient, making our lives that much easier in an ever-non-stop lifestyle we seemingly are always living.

Ultimately, that initial honeymoon, rose-colored glasses effect wore off, and we started to look a little closer and dig a little deeper. People had begun to realize the downside to cheap and fast furniture: It is actually cheap. We started to realize that quite often the materials seemed to break, and the tools that we used to assemble the furniture were horrible, or worse, missing.

These so-called “10-minute builds” would waste 3 hours of our lives, only to eventually make their way to the landfills. Something needed to change, and luckily, one brand has been doing just that. Continue on to find out how to upgrade your bedroom furniture!

The brand changing the scene

Thuma is changing things. It is taking the old concept of fast furniture and flipping that script on its head. Thuma was created out of this passion for a love of lounge and leisure and combined that with high-quality craftsmanship. The result is a brand that elevates how we see and use our everyday furniture, because nothing is more luxurious than a relaxing time at home

So, what makes that much better than other brands on the market? Continue reading one to find out more.

Furniture reimagined

Starting off, the brand focused on perfecting the bed. Our beds are where we spend about a third of our lives, yet an area far too many people overlook.

The reality is that most beds, cheap or expensive, have a plethora of undesirables. Most are too flimsy, noisy, difficult to assemble with horrible tools, unmovable once assembled, have limited storage, and have toxic materials. Thuma created a platform bed that stripped away everything unnecessary and redesigned every aspect of bedroom living.

The company’s hard work resulted in finding the perfect combination of minimalism and functionality with a luxury design, all while taking into account the environmental impact throughout the entire journey.

The benefits of Thuma

Thuma exists to provide a straightforward alternative with quality, craftsmanship, and convenience that customers can count on. A few reasons why we love its incredible design:

  • Ultra modular: Thuma furniture features beautiful minimalistic designs that are futuristic and modern. A perfect choice for any home.
  • Made from natural wood in three timeless stains: Thuma furniture consists of 100% upcycled solid rubberwood and is constructed with Japanese joinery. There’s no cheap particleboard, MDF, or toxic veneers in sight. Its furniture is made to achieve GREENGUARD Gold Certification, and actually exceeds the highest standards for low chemical emissions by only using premium materials. 
  • Simple to assemble: Zero screwdrivers, zero tools, zero Allen wrenches. You put together a two-drawer dresser, which could also easily be styled as a side table, in as little as 5 minutes, which includes the time it takes to unwrap the box it ships in.
  • Environmentally conscious: Rubberwood is a beautiful, durable material harvested at the end of the tree’s latex-producing lifecycle, upcycling what was once considered waste to create furniture that’s stunning and lasts. For every , , or Thuma sells, the company donates a tree to reforest ecosystems via One Tree Planted. It also never packs with Styrofoam or other unrecyclable materials.

Easy as 1, 2, 3

With so many reasons to choose Thuma, one of the hardest decisions will simply be which wood finish should you select for your furniture. After that, it’s all downhill from there.

Creating an inviting and relaxing atmosphere in your bedroom is crucial -- we spend a ton of time in our beds. And while a grand bedroom remodel may be tempting sometimes, a coat of paint is all you need to change up the vibe. What’s on the walls has a huge impact on the overall feeling of a room; different colors, patterns, and designs can add a whole lot of personality to the space. If you’re looking for inspiring bedroom ideas, or if you're intent on changing up your current design, check out some of these creative bedroom paint ideas that we think you'll love. 

Feature walls for the win
Feature walls have been done and redone, for good reason. They are perfect for combining simple sophisticated designs with some added personality. A feature wall is essentially one wall that is dedicated to something different than the others. It could be a different color, a stunning mural, a beautiful pattern, or anything else you decide. The great thing about feature walls is the versatility and ability to experiment. Depending on the shape and size of the bedroom, you can really get creative.

These Charlie Brown Christmas trees are your perfect holiday addition
The Charlie Brown Christmas tree is having a big comeback
Small spaces Christmas decor

If you're a fan of Charlie Brown, you've likely seen (more than once) A Charlie Brown Christmas. In it, Charlie gets mocked for finding a real tree for his centerpiece because of its short, puny, crooked branches and needles that seem to fall off without much effort.

Who knew all these years later that the Charlie Brown Christmas tree would become so popular with people of all ages? There's something to be said about the nostalgia this tree brings, and we're seeing it used as the main tree in the living room and in other rooms of the home, like the dining room, bedroom, and kids' rooms.

What a hardwood contractor says your wood flooring says about you
According to a hardwood contractor, the species, stain, and cut of your wood floors can say a lot about you

The home is a canvas for your personality, and your interiors should reflect your personal aesthetics. A professional hardwood contractor on TikTok, @lumberjackwoodsupply, says your wood flooring may reveal more about you than you might have thought. Here is what the species, color, and style of your wood flooring say about you (though, of course, some of these are a bit tongue-in-cheek).
What your wood flooring species says about you
If you have lighter, slim, natural pine floors, this TikToker says you likely fall into one of two categories. “You definitely have an appreciation for old things,” says @lumberjackwoodsupply. Alternatively, “you most likely own an old house that had these floors underneath.”
Walnut flooring
Walnut flooring is classy, elegant, and often sold at a steeper price. The hardwood contractor says homeowners with walnut flooring “have taste.”
Red oak
“There’s a good chance you didn’t choose to install this. It was just already in your house,” says this TikToker. But if you did choose to install red oak flooring, “you are either on a budget or you like to go against the status quo.”
Brazilian Cherry
“You probably live in an upscale but slightly outdated suburban home,” says the hardwood contractor. “There’s a good chance you hate the red.”
If you favor the sleek light wood tones of maple flooring to curate an airy and uplifting aesthetic, “You either live on the beach, or you want to look like you live on the beach,” says this TikToker.
Hickory flooring is well-known for its boldness. It’s a unique wood with a quirky grain and various hues. If you have hickory flooring, “you like unique things,” says the hardwood contractor. “You want to be different.”
