One of the hottest trends sweeping through the world of interior design these days is the combination of older, traditional furnishings with more contemporary pieces. As you can see in this video, a simple way to embrace this design style is to use classic furniture as the base and then accessorize with modern and abstract art, mirrors, and other extras. For example, two cozy, traditional armchairs in neutral colors such as cream or white can be given a modern boost with the help of bold pillows and statement lighting fixtures.
Another easy and effective way to blend the old with the new is to vary your indoor color palette. Don't be afraid to combine colors in a quirky manner, by offsetting traditional wooden floors and tables with exciting accent pieces like lime green artwork and cranberry window treatments.

Did you know that staging your home before you put it on the market could actually increase your chances of attracting serious buyers? Fixing your house up to pique buyers’ interest without distracting them too much is an easy task that you can do yourself with a little help from the interior design experts at your consignment furniture store. Here are our room staging tips to help your house sell.
Clear Each Room of Clutter and Personal Items
The first tip to follow when staging your home's many rooms is to eliminate any clutter, such as papers, magazines, and pens and pencils, as well as any personal items like photos of your family or trinkets you've collected during your travels. The home should feel clean and neutral so the buyer can picture himself or herself living there.
Pack Up Your Kitchen and Bathrooms
Another important step to take when staging is to pack away all pots, pans, and dishware and the contents of your pantry and cabinets. Again, the home should look clean and distraction-free. Be sure to also put shampoos, soaps, and other toiletries away when preparing your bathrooms.
Offer a Tasty Treat to Realtors and Buyers
Who wouldn't love a delicious treat while exploring the many features of your home? Make your home memorable for those looking at it by baking brownies or placing a bowl of fruit in the kitchen for realtors and potential buyers to enjoy.
Know When to Invest in an Attractive Furniture Piece
Finally, once you've done some major cleaning you may find that your home could actually use a boost when it comes to furniture or accessories, such as artwork. If you need to enhance the look of a room with an affordable yet attractive item, then head into your furniture consignment store. Consignment stores are also a great place to take any furniture you decide to purge during the staging process.
If you're getting ready to start fresh in a new home, then be sure to visit the Home Consignment Center when it's time to buy furniture. We sell and consign furniture, which means we are a great resource for both home sellers and home buyers during their transition processes.

If your master bedroom is not as spacious as you would like, then there are several tips and tricks that you can follow in order to maximize the square footage that you do have. Just as the designer in this video shares with us, one of the most effective strategies for making a bedroom appear and feel larger is to divide the space. Start decorating by determining where the bed will go and make it the focal point of the room before moving on to the surrounding areas.
Once the bed has been placed in its perfect location, use drapes, curtains, and other fabrics or accessories in soothing, romantic colors to divide the bed from the rest of the room. Place chairs and ottomans in separate zones close to the bathroom or walk-in closet to enhance the flow of the room and to attract the eye towards other corners of the space.
Is your bedroom in need of a modern makeover? You can find everything you need to spice up the look of any room right here at the Home Consignment Center. Call us today at (925) 272-0067 to learn more about the furniture we buy and consign.
