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!
