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.

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.

Selecting the Right Pillows for Your Sofa

Selecting the Right Pillows for Your Sofa

Are you getting tired of looking at the same old sofa in your living room? If so, it’s time to spruce up your interior décor by shopping at a consignment store. You’ll find quality products at prices far below what they would cost new.  Whether you decide to replace your old sofa, or you just want to make small changes with new and interesting throw pillows, start your search at a consignment store. Keep reading to learn about selecting the right pillows for your sofa.

Color

Many sofas come with throw pillows when you purchase them, usually made out of the same color and fabric as the sofa itself. While these pillows will do the job, you can consider spicing things up a bit by choosing ones that are a contrasting color. Colorful throw pillows are a great way to add interest to your decorating scheme, and pair well with neutral-colored furniture. Look for a color that highlights one of the tones in your rug or even in a piece of art that’s hanging on the wall. It may seem like a small detail, but the color of your throw pillows can go far in tying the room together.

Shape

Traditionally, throw pillows tend to be rectangular or square shaped. You can change things up a bit by using these pillows on either end of the sofa, and using a circular pillow or a bolster in the center. Consider whether your pillows will be used mostly for show, or if comfort will be a factor. Take the size of the pillow in relation to the couch into consideration so that your pillow doesn’t dwarf the furniture.

Pattern

It can feel a bit busy to have a sofa that’s upholstered in a pattern, but throw pillows that are striped, dotted, or even adorned in an animal print will show off your unique sense of style. Bold patterns add pops of color to your décor and keep your home feeling fresh and modern.
