    Measuring a Room for New Furniture

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Before you buy furniture, you should measure your home so you can have an easier time finding pieces that work with your space. Start with the length and width of the room in which you plan to put the furniture. You should also measure the width of doorways and windows. Do not forget to measure the hallways and any entryways through which the furniture has to pass.

    If you are replacing furniture, you can use the older pieces to estimate what you need from the new furniture. Measure the old pieces and decide if you want to buy a piece that is the same size, bigger, or smaller than your current selection.

    Bring your measurements into the Home Consignment Center to find furniture that meets every need. We consign furniture that offers style, function, and comfort to help you build your dream decor. For more information on our selection at our five Bay Area locations, visit us online or call (925) 838-0113. 

    How to Shop for Furniture with Your Significant Other

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Blending styles and opinions is not always a recipe for a good date. Buying furniture with a significant other can put a new kind of strain on your relationship. Before you start browsing the aisles for your new furnishings, prepare yourselves for the excursion. Use the following tips to stay happily committed to each other, even when shopping for furniture:

    Discuss What You Want Before You Go

    Having a conversation about furniture before you leave the house helps alleviate some of the stress of shopping. If you both sit down and talk about what you want and expect from your furniture, it can help you find a middle ground. Once you have narrowed the selection, it is much easier to browse the furniture store and find pieces that please both of your tastes.

    Try to Stay Open-Minded

    If both of you are dead set on a different piece of furniture and refuse to compromise, you are setting yourselves up for failure. As long as you both keep an open mind, you can work together to find great furnishings that meet all of your needs.

    Measure Before You Go

    Just because you made it out of the store without a fight does not mean you are home free. In order to avoid a blowout once you realize that the new couch or bed does not fit through the doorway, you should measure before you start shopping. Take detailed measurements of the room where you want to put the furniture and all doorways and hallways you have to pass to get there.

    When you do your furniture shopping at the Home Consignment Center, you get a selection of great furnishings at prices you and your significant other can agree on. We have consignment furniture that meets every style and every need. To learn more about our selection or our locations, visit our website or call (925) 838-0113.

    Color Rules for Decorating Small Spaces

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Color is one of the most important decorating tools for a small space. The right colors open up the room and provide the illusion of more square footage. The wrong colors make the room seem even smaller than it is. Use the following rules when decorating small spaces to make the most out of the space you have:

    White Is Not the Way

    Many people who live in small spaces are afraid to decorate with any color other than white. They feel other hues diminish the visual openness of the space. While white does have certain appeal in a small apartment, it also keeps the space feeling impersonal. If you choose the right color combinations, you can still create the illusion of a bigger home while adding warmth and comfort.

    Use Striking Accent Colors

    A great decorating trick for small living spaces is to use color in interesting ways to accent the rest of the décor. Paint the inside of a bookshelf with a bright, bold color, for example, to draw the eye. An accent wall can also do a lot for a smaller home. Usually, dark colors make a space look smaller, but they can actually make it look bigger when used sparingly on one accent wall.

    Create Color Schemes that Flow

    Incorporating a particular color scheme through a few areas of the home gives it more flow, which connects the space. Put throw pillows on the couch that have the same colors as the accent rug you placed under the dining room table. Choose drapes and other decorative accessories that continue this color scheme.

    At Home Consignment Center, we make it easy to buy furniture and accessories that work with any space. Our selection of consignment furniture is full of pieces that can bring comfort and style to your décor.

    What to Look for When Buying a New Desk

    Last updated 1 year ago

    If you like to work while at home, you need to create the ideal work environment. This means buying furniture that allows you to sit down, focus, and get your work done. A desk is an essential piece for any home office, which is why it is often one of the first pieces purchased.

    Your desk should allow you to stay comfortable and relaxed while working at home. Doing some research before you start shopping is the best way to find the desk that meets all of your needs. Look for a desk that provides plenty of leg room so you do not feel cramped while working. Make sure the desk also offers space for your computer, notepad, or other tools you use for your job. You should also find a desk that appeals to you visually and works well with other aesthetic features in the room.

    Choose from a wonderful selection of desks here at the Home Consignment Center. Learn about our consign furniture process by taking a look at our website or calling us at (925) 272-4318.
