(photo & sofa bed: West Elm)
Giulio and I are adding the final touches to the last room in our house: the guest bedroom. Like most tiny European houses, our guest bedroom serves the multipurpose of occasional study/occasional guest bedroom/occasional reading room/mostly storage room.
To be perfectly honest, I try very hard not to dump all the stuff I don’t have room for elsewhere in the guest bedroom and suffice to say, I’m failing. But in March next year, my mum is coming to stay with us for a few weeks and we desperately need a new sofa bed. Our current one was bought by my husband in his bachelor years and is the ultimate stoner futon. It folds out onto the floor!
Nearly any type of business will need some sort of dumpster rental for their property. Depending on the type of business will reflect what type of service is required, and will also reflect what size dumpster will need to be rented. Some of the available pickup options can range from daily, to weekly, to even monthly pickups. Specialty dumpsters for recyclable goods are also available to rent out to companies. If you need a compacting dumpster for boxes and cardboard goods, this too can be rented from the same establishment that rents out any other type of dumpster.

One important aspect of dumpster rental is having many different sizes available for companies to rent. Many places do not need the biggest dumpster imaginable to suit their needs. When the company is contacted for a dumpster rental, the first thing that will be discussed is what size is needed. If you are unsure as to what size is actually needed, a representative of the company can come out and assess the place of business and offer what size would be suitable. The next thing discussed during the rental process is how often the company will need to empty, or change out, the dumpster. A specific payment plan will be offered regarding to how often the dumpster will need to be exchanged. Another thing to consider is how long the dumpster will be rented for. If it is only short term, a specific plan will reflect this. Customized pricing and planning is one of the customer service oriented options a trash company offers. Pickup of the dumpsters can be at any time during a 24 hour period, and immediate pickup can be arranged. Usually the wait time is under two hours, depending on the exact circumstances.
If you need a dumpster permanently, you can purchase is from the company. A similar option for this is to lease the dumpster for a certain amount of years, which is close to simply buying the dumpster. All needs can be accommodated for. A specialty service that requires dumpster rental is community cleanup programs and other charity type projects. Usually the dumpster company will work with the organizer of such of an event and often times apply discounts for the sake of the community. Its service like this that makes the professional trash solution companies stand out from the rest and make them the one stop company that anyone can go to for their dumpster needs.
The problem? I hate sofa beds. They all look like those dowdy couches with the cloth cover your parents had for the occasional interstate relative and they all cost more than your actual living room couch. I have spent the better part of two weeks trying to find a sofa bed that I can proudly display in its couch-form 90 per cent of the year.
I wanted something stylish and fresh. Something that wasn’t just comfy, but made a statement and was actually available in Italy. I narrowed it down to five, in the process discovering heaps of home decor stores that I didn’t even realise shipped to Italy! Yay!
Obviously there is a huge difference between the prices of these sofas and its indicative of the market. I didn’t include IKEA on purpose because I think that when it comes to affordable sofas, comfort always trumps style with IKEA. All the IKEA sofa beds looked like sofa beds and I wanted a couch that doubled as a sofa bed. I.e. something pretty that you could also sleep on.
At the moment, it’s a toss up between no.1 and no.4. I love the colour and the price of the Maison du Monde couch, but I’m worried it’s too small, whereas the West Elm one has a great shape and a reasonable price. I’ll keep you posted on which one we choose!
