Review: Birlea Furniture

Hey guys, well it’s been a while since our Birlea furniture arrived. Remember that teal and white guest room? Well, we’ve had Jess stay around (Jess is our friends 6yr old daughter) and Jess has been telling us what she does and doesn’t like about the furniture.

Firstly, she loves the 3ft Toronto guest bed, which we purchased from Bed SOS. She says the mattress (also from Bed SOS) is very comfy – it’s like a ‘bouncy castle’ according to Jess.

Jess loves the Cotswold three drawer bedside cabinet. She loves the fact she has her own clothes in there, which in her eyes makes it ‘hers’ (basically – because she’s been staying over frequently – Kelly and I have told her its her bedroom!). She manages to open the drawers with ease, and doesn’t struggle to close them. The drawers are not on metal runners, the whole of the drawers are constructed from solid wood and the drawers sit/ slide on a wooden piece.

Jess doesn’t like the fact that her Lego box doesn’t fit next to the bed anymore (due to the Cotswold bedside cabinet being there instead).

With regards to the Birlea Cotswold 4+2 drawer chest, at first Jess complained that it was too high! We explained that the only reason the chest of drawers seemed too high was because she was laid in the bed looking at them. Once she stood next to the drawers she realised that they were a perfect size. Jess now loves the drawers, and has her books and Bratz doll safe in the very bottom drawer. Again, the Cotswold chest of drawers is constructed in the same way as the bedside cabinet. Jess manages to open the drawers easily, and also closes them without struggle. Jess loves the two small drawers located at the very top, Jess claims that these are ‘cute!’.

Jess doesn’t like the fact that her Cotswold white chest of drawers does not have an LCD TV sat on it – so at present she can’t watch TV in bed!

We’ve promised Jess that a brand new television will be purchased in the very near future to accommodate her room.

Cotswold 3 drawer bedside cabinet review

Last night, Kelly and I decided to assemble our three drawer white bedside cabinet – which turned out to look stunning!

Unlike most flat pack furniture this Birlea Cotswold nightstand came with all its parts.  Kelly and I wasted no time in sorting through our screws and ordering the parts in to some kind of sequence – as you do!  The instructions were very easy to follow and the screws were easy identifiable – due to their individually lettered plastic packets (as shown below).  Check out the in detail shots of Kelly and I hard at work.

Once Kelly and I had our bedside table assembled, we wasted no time in placing the white wooden bedside table in our guest room – it looks fantastic!

Bed SOS: now that’s one way to rescue a guest room!

With our guest room furniture finally here Kelly and I began the process of erecting it – which suprisingly took no time at all!

The Birlea Toronto bed was, once again, purchased from Bed SOS on Wednesday with free next day delivery! We chose this white wooden bed as it looks beautiful against the wall paint, and personally we both love white wooden furniture.
The white bedside cabinet and matching 4+2 drawer chest, part of the Birlea Cotswold range, was also purchased from Bed SOS with next day delivery – I love this company, dedicated to meeting their customers needs!
With regards to the mattresses, we obviously needed two and to be honest we were not wanting to pay a lot of money for mattresses which will only occasionally be getting used.  In the end we opted for two 3ft Deluxe mattresses from Bed SOS.  I find it amazing just how quickly a bedroom can come together!
