    What to Consider When Purchasing New Furniture

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Furniture is one of the most important purchases you make for your home. Without the right furniture, your home could end up uncomfortable and visually unappealing. If you want to buy furniture that lasts, you have to know how to shop. Use this guide to simplify the furniture-buying process so you can go home with pieces you love:

    Think About Sizes

    Buying an oversized couch for a small living space is not a smart idea. When you shop for furniture, you want to find pieces that complement your living space. Take measurements of your old furniture and your home before you do anything else. This way, you can narrow down your selection at the furniture store and only look at pieces that will work in your interior.

    Think About Style

    When you purchase new furniture, you have an opportunity to incorporate a new décor into your home or enhance the one you already have. If you want to start over with your interior design, shop for pieces that really catch your eye and serve as a foundation for a new interior design. If you want to keep the current décor, however, you should find furniture that seamlessly fits into your space.

    Think About Your Wants

    Take your time when shopping for furniture so you can find a piece that meets all of your needs. If you are looking for a coffee table with extra storage space, for example, you should not settle on a piece that does not offer it. You do not have to buy the first piece you see; wait until you find the piece that you actually want.

    Home Consignment Center is always getting a new selection of great consignment furniture and accessories that can enhance your décor. We want you to have the selection you need to find the furnishings you actually want. To learn more, visit us online or call (925) 838-0113.

    The Latest Dining Room Decorating Trends

    Last updated 1 year ago

    As one of the primary centers for entertaining in the home, the dining room should offer aesthetic appeal, comfort, and convenience. The latest decorating trends offer all of this and more. Consider adding some of the following to your dining room décor to make the most of your space:

    Focus on the Lighting

    Light fixtures are great accessories for a dining room, and can help you create a certain mood. Find a unique light fixture that adds some visual stimulation to the space and helps you walk the line between formal and casual dining. This decorative addition will draw even more attention to your beautiful dining table.

    Mix and Match

    You do not have to have a table with matching chairs to create a beautiful and functional dining area. Try to find a few different styles that come together to create a cohesive look. Shopping at the consignment furniture store is a great way to find unique pieces that you can mix and match to create a style that represents your personality. Buy furniture and accessories that you like and figure out how to combine them when you get home.

    Bring the Glamour

    A glamorous accessory brings just the right amount of pizzazz to an otherwise casual dining space. Whether you find the perfect chandelier or an elegant hutch, these stylish additions bring a unique element to the space that enhances all of your other design choices. One or two glamorous pieces can serve as the finishing touches for your new dining room design.

    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.
