One upscale trend that you can incorporate into your home's look is glamorous furniture that screams luxury and elegance. Another trend to watch for is furniture that is inspired by different exotic locales around the world, such as wooden chests that look like they're straight out of Morocco or chairs that look like they could be featured prominently in a Danish boutique hotel. Finally, one trend that bold homeowners are embracing is metallic leather furniture. This standout furniture looks best when accessorized with simple art.

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.

Before you can welcome guests into your new home, you have to spend some time buying furniture and accessories that create an open and inviting space. Do the following before you host a housewarming party to ensure that you are ready for your guests and your life in your new home.
Make Sure You Have the Right Furniture
You should have plenty of comfortable seating options if you want to invite a lot of guests into your home. Find a sofa, a loveseat, and some accent chairs where your guests can sit down and get comfortable as they mingle and enjoy the appetizers you have set out for them. Enhance the seating with a coffee table, side tables, or even a large ottoman so your guests have a place to rest their plates and glasses. Complete the seating area with some interior lighting that sets a mood and makes it easier to have a conversation.
Stock Up on Glasses and Dishes
Whenever you plan to serve food and drinks, you have to have dishes from which to serve them. Find some decorative dishes and glassware that will make the ideal addition to your housewarming party and any celebrations that you choose to have in the future.
Personalize Your Space with Artwork
Add some personal touches to the décor in your new home with artwork and other accessories that will complement your decorating style. These personal touches make your space feel like your home. Adding unique details like these can also make your guests feel more welcome in your home and it will get you excited about giving tours when your guests arrive.
