Choosing the Right Bed Size for Your Bedroom

Choosing the Right Bed Size for Your Bedroom

Since a bed is the most important component of a bedroom, it’s important that you spend a bit of time selecting the perfect model when shopping for furniture at your local consignment store. To select the right bed size for the space, begin by measuring the bedroom and determining how much of the room you would like to devote to the bed. Be sure to open any closet doors to ensure that they will not be inaccessible once the bed is installed in the room. As a general rule of thumb, try to match beds according to room size as well as the size of the sleepers. Children require less space and should therefore sleep in smaller beds.

If you are a couple, don’t forget to buy furniture that will accommodate both of you and your individual measurements. Experts agree that 30 inches is typically enough when it comes to sleeping space requirements for the average adult. For even more tips and guidelines to consider when it comes to picking a bed, talk to the experts at the Home Consignment Center.

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.

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.

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.

Visit Home Consignment Center in Austin when you’re ready to take your interior design to the next level with fun throw pillows for your sofa. Call us at (925) 309-7231 to find out about the wide variety of furniture, home accessories, and other décor options that we carry.

The Home Consignment Center Guide to Common Furniture Terminology

Friday, March 7th, 2014

Your Guide to Common Furniture Terminology

 

When buying furniture, certain terminology can help you narrow down the selection and find the pieces you really want. Know what you are looking for is the only way to truly find it. Before you start shopping, familiarize yourself with the following terms so you can feel more confident in the furniture store:

 Accent Pieces

Accent colors and furniture are a great decorating tool for your home. Accent colors are contrasting hues that bring more aesthetic appeal to a space. Accent furniture is made up of smaller pieces like chairs that complement larger pieces and tie a room together. Using accents helps you create a décor of your own.

 Daybeds

If you want to create a multifunctional room in your home, a daybed is a great piece to use. This furnishing can be used as a place to sit during the day but doubles as a bed. Whether you want to use this as a permanent bed or just a space for guests, a daybed helps you make the most out of your home.

 Modern Furniture

This design term refers to furniture and accessories that have clean lines and architectural features. This furniture style developed from 20th century styles, most specifically the German Bauhaus School of Architecture.

 Antique Furniture

If you prefer older styles in your home design, you should probably focus your search on antique pieces. Furniture that is considered antique is at least one hundred years old. You can often use antique pieces to create a more traditional décor.

 Come to Home Consignment Center in Newport Beach to browse through our impressive furniture selection and find pieces that help you create your ideal décor. With an ever-changing inventory, we always have great new pieces for you to look at it. To learn more about our furniture or our consignment services, visit us online or call (949) 250-0326.
