Choosing the Right Bed Size for Your Bedroom

Choosing the Right Bed Size for Your Bedroom

Since a bed is the most important component of a bedroom, it’s important that you spend a bit of time selecting the perfect model when shopping for furniture at your local consignment store. To select the right bed size for the space, begin by measuring the bedroom and determining how much of the room you would like to devote to the bed. Be sure to open any closet doors to ensure that they will not be inaccessible once the bed is installed in the room. As a general rule of thumb, try to match beds according to room size as well as the size of the sleepers. Children require less space and should therefore sleep in smaller beds.

If you are a couple, don’t forget to buy furniture that will accommodate both of you and your individual measurements. Experts agree that 30 inches is typically enough when it comes to sleeping space requirements for the average adult. For even more tips and guidelines to consider when it comes to picking a bed, talk to the experts at the Home Consignment Center.

Essential Furniture Arrangement Tips

Essential Furniture Arrangement Tips

Before you buy furniture for your home, it’s a good idea to have a vision of how that furniture will fit into a room. The first rule, no matter what room you’re furnishing, is to know the dimensions of the room, as well as the measurements for all entrances, doors, and hallways that you’ll have to go through to get the furniture to its final location.

Choose furniture pieces in different sizes, and perhaps even slightly different shapes or styles, to create dimension and interest. Position furniture in a way that matches the function of the room—sofas should face each other if you’ll be doing a lot of talking with family or guests, for example.

When you’re ready to buy furniture for your planned room, come see us at Home Consignment Center. You can buy or sell gently used, modern furniture for great prices with us. Call (925) 272-0067 today to learn more.

Why Your Bedroom Needs a Nightstand

Why Your Bedroom Needs a Nightstand

One of the most overlooked items when people buy furniture for their bedrooms is the nightstand. This underrated piece of furniture really does deserve a moment in the spotlight, though. While you may not feel it’s an essential piece to own, once you have one you’ll wonder how you ever called your bedroom complete without it! Here’s why:

Nightstands are Convenient

Do you like to read at night before drifting off to sleep? Do you ever find yourself totally comfortable except for that sudden urge for a sip of water? Do you wish you could charge your phone and still have it at arm’s reach during the night? Then you need a nightstand! Nightstands are perfect for holding all of these items and more at a convenient distance from you so that you don’t have to put your feet back on the floor until morning.

Nightstands Complete Your Look

Nightstands have a way of tying a room together to create a complete, cohesive look and feel. Determine what style fits your bedroom best before you go to buy furniture, and make sure you measure your bed to see what height will work best for you. Just be careful not to purchase one that’s too deep, lest you find yourself bumping into it when getting out of bed.

Nightstands are Functional

If you choose a nightstand that has one or more drawers, shelves, or cabinet doors, you will have instantly created extra storage space in your room. Figure out which items need a home in your room, as well as which items you’d like to have nearest to you at night, then purchase a nightstand that can serve the purpose. It will be an investment you won’t soon regret.

When you visit us at Home Consignment Center, you can buy furniture of all types for every room in your home, or you can consign furniture when you’re ready to update, or both! Stop by one of our locations today to see our selection, shop online, or give us a call at (925) 272-0067 for more information.

Design Ideas for a Small Bedroom

Your bedroom can be more than just the place you go to sleep. With the right décor, you can transform even a small bedroom into a relaxing retreat. When you have a small bedroom, start by creating a focal point. This might be a headboard or a window, depending on how your room is set up. While it might seem like a good idea to get a big bed to compensate for the small space, your room will actually feel larger if the bed is slightly shorter and does not have a footboard. Maximize your space by storing items under the bed, and use a closet organizer system to keep all of your clothing and shoes in order. You can choose darker colors to create a cozy nest, or brighten things up with lighter colors for a more cheerful bedroom.

You can find bedroom furniture to fit any size room at Home Consignment Center of Austin. Give us a call at (512) 686-4763 to inquire about our current inventory. We get new items every day, so you’re sure to find something to suit your needs.
