The Latest Home Office Design Trend

The Latest Home Office Design Trend

It goes without saying that working from home provides you with countless freedoms that you might not experience while working in an office building. One such freedom is the option of decorating your work space according to your own personal taste and trendsetting ways. This makes buying furniture from your local consignment store not only easy but also fun. Let’s explore some of the latest home office design trends.

A Separate Space

One of the biggest trends that architects and interior designers are seeing these days when it comes to home offices is the addition of a detached office to a home. Many at-home workers are opting to put a bit of space between themselves and the home in order to eliminate distractions. If you have extra space on your property and the budget to built a detached office, then you may want to consider doing so for the sake of your work’s progress as well as the eventual resale value of your home.

Multifunctional Office and Bedroom

Just because detached offices are popping up as the new big trend in home office design doesn’t mean you have to commit to such a major renovation. Another equally as in-demand trend is the creation of a multifunctional space that serves as both an office and a bedroom, game room, or library. To create this space more effortlessly, it is important to buy furniture that is also multipurpose, such as desks that offer a lot of storage or a hideaway bed that doubles as a cabinet.

 Classic Furnishings and Accessories

While some designers are encouraging home office owners to go bold with their color choices, the vast majority are recommending that home office décor remain classic so that it retains its attractiveness for years to come. It’s also wise to buy furniture that is classic in style since it offers very few distractions and enhances productivity in the work space.

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

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.

For even more inspiration when it comes to designing your bedroom and office combination, come visit your nearest Home Consignment Center. 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

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. Buy furniture at one of our five Bay Area locations to get the selection you need to decorate any space.
