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.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Dining Room Table

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.

Choosing the Right Furniture for Your Home

The furniture you use in your home completely changes the look and feel of the space. 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. Take the time to check out the craftsmanship of any piece you plan to buy to ensure that it will be a functional piece that can enhance your décor for many years. 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.

At Home Consignment Center, we bring you some of the best furniture options in the Bay Area.

Selecting the Perfect Dining Room Table

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.

Signs You Need to Replace Your Dining Room Set

Signs You Need to Replace Your Dining Room Set

For many families, the dining room is one of the most meaningful spaces in the home, since it serves as the location for countless family dinners and occasional celebrations with friends. If your dining room is a popular spot for you and yours to spend time, then be sure to fill it with comfortable, practical, and attractive furniture from your Roseville furniture store. Here are three major signs that you need to replace your dining room set:

Ugly Scratches Have Ruined the Surface

Although most dining room table surfaces are meant to resist scratches made by clumsy kids or old dishware, it’s not uncommon for them to fall victim to a major scratch, dent, or burn. If your table or chairs show signs of scratches or similar damage, then now may be a good time to replace them with sturdier and more attractive models from your Roseville or Folsom consignment store.

Chairs Are Missing or Don’t Match the Table

Are you frequently dragging a kitchen table chair into the dining room to accommodate guests? Or perhaps you lack the right amount of chairs to sit your family comfortably. If either scenario rings true for you, then say goodbye to the days of adding mismatched chairs to your dining table and consider investing in a new set from a consignment furniture store.

The Set Is the Wrong Size for the Space

It’s also time to consider replacing your dining room set if your current furniture is either too large or too small for the space. A dining room table that is too big for the room will instantly make it feel smaller, whereas one that is too small will make the space seem confused. You can avoid both effects in your dining space by choosing a set that complements the room’s unique dimensions.

Here at the Home Consignment Center, we offer a wide range of dining room set styles for you to choose from. No matter what your décor preference is, you’re sure to find furniture that suits it well at any one of our Sacramento area shops. Call (916) 302-4390 to learn more about buying and consigning with us.

A Home Consignment Center Guide to Buying Dining Room Furniture

A Guide to Buying Dining Room Furniture

With the right décor, you can create a dining room that becomes a popular place for people to gather in the home. You want to find a dining set that is both stylish and functional enough to meet all of your entertaining needs. Keep reading for some helpful tips on choosing dining room furniture that helps you enhance your interior design:

Shop for Size

The best dining rooms are those that seamlessly fit into a room. This means that you have to find a table that works with the size of your room. Take measurements of the space before you begin to shop to narrow down your selection. Your table should have plenty of space for each person to have 24-30 inches of elbowroom and at least 30 inches across the table.

Find Comfortable, Stylish Chairs

If you want your guests to sit comfortably in the dining room for long periods of time, it is important to find chairs that offer comfort and support. Shop for styles that have sturdy backs and padded cushions. You should also look for chairs that meet your desired aesthetic so you can establish a distinctive décor in the space.

Decide on a Shape

The shape of the table that you choose also changes its final effect. Round tables only seat 4 people, so they are perfect for smaller, more intimate dining rooms. Square tables can seat 8 guests. If you are looking for a bigger table to serve as the foundation for large dinners, rectangular or oblong tables can seat up to twelve people.
