Choosing Furniture for Your Living Room

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

Modern interiors,living-room with the modern furniture

The living room should be one of the most welcoming rooms of your home. If you want to create a stylish and livable living room design, you have to start by choosing the right furniture. Keep reading for some tips on shopping for the perfect pieces for your ideal living room:

Buy Sizes that Work with Your Space

One of the biggest decorating mistakes that homeowners make is choosing furniture that does not fit the scale of the room. Take detailed measurements of the living room so you have a good idea of the canvas with which you are working. If you have a large, open living room, you might want to create a few different furniture sections that make the room feel more welcoming. If you have a small living room, though, you should choose smaller pieces that do not overpower the space.

Decide on a Focal Point

It can seem overpowering to design an entire living room décor, but if you break the project up into sections, it becomes much more manageable. Choose a piece that you love to serve as a focal point and design around it. Whether this piece is a fabulous sofa or a beautiful and unique coffee table, this one anchor piece makes it much easier to decide on other pieces that bring the entire room together.

Create Plenty of Seating

It is important to incorporate a few different seating options to make your living room as comfortable as possible. Start with a sofa or a sectional and add onto it with a loveseat and an accent chair. Whether you have a large or a small living room, adding a few different kinds of furniture for seating gives you a stylish and functional living room design.

Whether you want to replace one piece of living room furniture or redesign the whole room, Home Consignment Center has what you need to do it right. Our Newport Beach location always has great new pieces in our inventory to help you find what you want. Call (949) 250-0326 to learn more.

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.

Why Your Bedroom Needs a Nightstand

Friday, December 19th, 2014

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.

Tips for Creating an Office Guest Room Combination

Friday, December 12th, 2014

The Latest Home Office Design Trend

One of the hottest trends in home design these days is the addition of a combined office and guest room in the home. While this may sound like a difficult style of room to create, you can outfit your home with this convenient multipurpose space with help from several essential furniture pieces from your local consignment store. Here are some tips for creating an office guest room combination.

Begin by Creating a Floor Plan

Since it is easy to become overwhelmed while creating a combination room, it is important that you begin the process by creating a floor plan for the space. Determine how much space you actually have to work with before asking yourself how exactly you would like to divide that space up. If you’re having trouble visualizing the floor plan, create a sketch of the room on paper and mark where the various work and sleep zones will be located as well as any and all furniture.

Invest in Multifunctional Furniture

Once the time comes to buy furniture from your Bay Area consignment store, look for pieces that offer more than one basic function. Shop around for a desk that offers plenty of storage space in order to eliminate clutter in the room. Consider buying a sofa that also features a bed inside or a daybed that doubles as a sofa in order to maximize space while you are not hosting guests in the home.

Add Personal Touches Throughout the Space

Although this room may be the go-to space for out-of-town guests throughout the year, it should still reflect your own personal style and taste. Be sure to add personal touches such as a whimsical lamp or a beautiful painting you found while consigning or buying furniture at the Home Consignment Center. Pillows and textiles are also great options for adding color and drama in the space without providing too much distraction for a houseguest.

We also buy jewelry and consign jewelry, which makes us more than just your one-stop shopping destination for great furnishings.

Non-Essential Furnishings to Consider for Your Bedroom

Once you get your bedroom set up with all of the essential furniture items like a bed, a dresser, and a nightstand, you can start to have some fun with your bedroom décor. Read on to learn about some non-essential furniture items that you can use to optimize the style and function of your room.

An Armoire

An armoire is a stylish piece of furniture that can be used to add a romantic element to your bedroom design. It also offers much more storage space that helps you get rid of clutter in your room to keep it looking clean and organized. Adding an armoire to a bedroom is a quick and easy way to increase the elegance and overall aesthetic appeal of the space.

An Armchair or a Sofa

The living room is not the only space that should have comfortable seating options. Create an area for reading or relaxing by adding an armchair or a sofa to the room’s design. Try to buy furniture that complements the rest of your bedroom décor so you can continue your decorating theme and add some more comfort to the space. Place a stylish ottoman in front of your new seating options to ensure optimal comfort for your bedroom décor.

A Desk

Setting up a desk in your bedroom offers many possibilities, both practical and visual. You can use the desk as a vanity area where you get ready in the morning or for a place to sit down and write. No matter how you use the desk, this piece of furniture can instantly enhance the appeal of your room.

At Home Consignment Center, we bring you an amazing selection of furniture and accessories that you can use to optimize any room of your home.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Dining Room Table

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Dining Room Table

If you want to get a lot of use out of your dining room, you must choose the right table to serve as the foundation for the space. The best way to buy furniture is to first decide what you need. Consider the following factors when choosing a dining room table to ensure that it brings your entire room together:

The Size of the Room

Your table should complement the room around it, which means it needs to be the right size. A table that is either too small or too big could throw off the entire aesthetic of the room. Take measurements before you go to the store so you have a clear idea of what size you need.

The Shape of the Table

Table shape can change the way the piece fits into a room and the aesthetic effect that it creates. You want to choose a shape that works well with the size of your room and your entertaining needs. Round tables are better options if you want to create an atmosphere that inspires conversation. Rectangular tables can usually seat more people, especially if you add a leaf.

The Amount of Chairs You Need

If you want a dining room that only accommodates your immediate family, you can stick to a table that only has about four chairs. If you plan to host more guests, though, you should get more chairs. Make sure the chairs are both stylish and comfortable.

The Style of the Table

Since the table serves as the foundation for the entire room, be sure to choose a style that works with the rest of the room’s décor. If you want a more eclectic feel, buy a table with mismatched chairs. If you want something more traditional, though, deep woods are always a good option.

Come to Home Consignment Center today to find your ideal dining room table. We make it easy to buy furniture you love at prices you can afford. Call (925) 394-4209 to learn more about our services and locations.

Busting Myths About Leather Furniture

Busting Myths About Leather Furniture

Leather furniture is a beautiful and durable addition for any home. A lot of people tend to shy away from it, however, because they believe certain myths about the material. Keep reading to learn the truth about leather so you can finally enjoy the look of it in your home:

Myth: Leather Furniture Will Not Last As Long As Other Materials

Since it is a natural material, people tend to believe that leather will not last. In fact, the natural aging process of leather makes it even more beautiful than when you bought it. Leather pieces change and grow with your family and they can become a beautiful addition to your home for many years to come. Instead of suffering major wear and tear like other materials, a great piece of leather furniture really comes into its own as it ages.

Myth: Leather Furniture Is Too Expensive

There are plenty of affordable leather options available that fit nicely into your budget. Shop at the local consignment store to find leather at even better prices. Fabric furniture gets worn down over time, but leather continues to get better through the years. Even if you pay a little bit less for a fabric sofa or armchair, it will not offer the same kind of value as leather pieces.

Myth: Leather Is Hard to Maintain

Whether you have kids or pets, leather is actually very easy to keep clean and looking great. You should use a quality leather conditioner once every 6-12 months to keep the material supple. For most basic cleanings, you will only have to use a dust cloth and the vacuum cleaner. If you keep the furniture away from direct sunlight, you can prevent fading and maintain its original aesthetic appeal.

Before you buy furniture, you should consider the décor you want to create so you can choose pieces that really meet your style and function needs. Use the following tips to help narrow your furniture selection and find furniture that fits perfectly into your home life:

Shop for Quality

Whether you want to build a modern or a traditional décor, you should always shop for furniture that is built well.

Shopping at the consignment shop helps you find high quality furniture at prices you can afford so you can create your ideal décor with pieces that are built to last.

Find Your Style

Even if you do not have a particular decorating style in mind when you get to the store, you should still give yourself the opportunity to gravitate toward pieces that appeal to you visually. Once you start to see the kind of furniture that attracts you, you can determine your true decorating style, which will make it easier to shop for more furniture and accessories.

Consider Your Available Space

The size of furniture you buy is also an important factor to consider. This will ensure that your new furniture works well inside of your space. Take measurements before you start to shop so you know what kind of pieces you need to comfortably fill your space.

Home Consignment Center Helps You to Design a Modern-Style Living Room

Friday, August 1st, 2014

How to Design a Modern-Style Living Room

If you love clean lines and open floor spaces, you would probably love a modern-style living room for your home. Use the following tips to find furniture and accessories that help you add the right amount of modern appeal to your space:

Choose Your Colors Wisely

Color plays a huge impact on the overall appeal of a modern decorating style. If you want to use a bright, bold shade like red, you should tone it down with a neutral shade like white or grey to get the right balance. You can also choose a monochromatic color scheme for your space to keep a light, open feeling in your interior. If you decorate with patterns, you might want to consider mixing a few different patterns to keep the interior design visually interesting.

Find Furniture with Clean Lines

Clean lines and geometric shapes are the cornerstone of a modern living room. If you want to incorporate this design style into your space, you should start off with clean, linear furniture. Once you find your couch, your coffee table, and a few accent chairs, you will have a foundation that steers you toward the best kind of accessories.

Use Eye-Catching Accessories Sporadically

You can draw even more attention to your new living room décor with a few well-placed accessories that add depth and texture to the room. Instead of using bright colors and patterns throughout the space, for example, reserve them for a couple of throw pillows or a really great area rug. You might even want to use a fantastic piece of artwork as the focal point for the room. Using accessories to add some drama to the décor is a great way to keep things modern and still bring some of your personality to the interior design.

Come to Home Consignment Center to find fabulous pieces of furniture that help you infuse your living room with a modern décor. We bring you some of the best furniture finds in Newport Beach at hard-to-beat prices. For more information, check out our website or call (949) 250-0326.

Selecting the Perfect Dining Room Table

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Selecting the Perfect Dining Room Table

When choosing a dining room table, it is important to find a size, style, and shape that caters to all of your entertaining needs. Use the following tips while browsing through the furniture selection at your local consignment store to select a dining room table that enhances your home design and makes it easy to serve meals of any size.

Decide on a Shape

The shape of the table changes the atmosphere of your dining room. If you want to inspire easy conversation between small groups of people, you should choose a round or an oval shape. If you host dinners with large groups of people, though, a rectangular table usually offers more space for guests. Choose your table shape based on your needs to get the most use out of this important piece of furniture.

Spend Some Time Choosing Chairs

You can use the dining room chairs to add visual appeal to the table area. You might want to consider opting for chairs with colorful upholstery that add some excitement to your dining room design. You can also mix and match a few different styles to create a unique aesthetic effect for your room. Make sure your chairs rest at a good height in relation to the table and provide comfort and support that lasts for hours.

Choose a Table with Character

Whether you have modern or traditional tastes, you should try to find a table that has a personality of its own. Shopping at consignment furniture stores gives you access to a wide variety of dining room tables so you can choose one with enough character to serve as the centerpiece for your dining room décor.
