How to Choose the Best Second Hand Pine Bedroom Furniture

At Home from Home we stock a wide range of second hand bedroom furniture. After doing some research online we have found some useful tips on how to choose the best second hand pine bedroom furniture.

An inexpensive way to populate your bedroom with attractive pieces of furniture is to choose second hand pine bedroom furniture. This softwood is commonly used in furniture making because it is reasonably attractive and easy to work with, though it will be necessary to do a bit of maintenance to ensure the pine bedroom furniture lasts a long time. Pine can come in a variety of shades and styles; some furniture will feature knotty pine, which will have a high amount of knots that add to the attractiveness of the piece.

Decide ahead of time what types of second hand pine bedroom furniture you will need, as well as how much you are willing to spend. While pine bedroom furniture does tend to be less expensive than hardwood furniture, it can still be expensive if you choose higher-end pieces. Furniture sets will also cost more money up-front, but may end up saving you money in the long run. If you intend to buy several pieces of pine bedroom furniture, consider buying a set rather than buying each piece individually.

After you have taken careful measurements of the bedroom, decide what pieces of furniture will fit best and where they will be placed in the room. This will help prevent clutter in the room, which can make it uncomfortable and cramped. This may also help determine what set you buy, as bedroom sets may include various pieces, including bed frames, dressers, and nightstands. Think carefully about what pieces you want and need for the room.

Decide what tone of wood you are looking for. Some second hand pine bedroom furniture will be very light in color and feature a smooth grain. This is a very attractive option for rooms with a clean aesthetic. Knotty pine features various knots throughout the pieces of wood, and the result is a more rustic look to the furniture. Unfinished pine furniture will be the least expensive option in most cases, but it will need to be painted or otherwise treated to resist damage such as chipping, cracking, and warping.

How to Choose the Best Second Hand Swivel Bar Stools

At Home from Home we stock a wide range of second hand seating. After doing some online research we have discovered some tips on how to choose the best second hand swivel bar stools.

A swivel bar stool is a tall stool designed for high counters and bars in restaurants or at home. The stool rotates, or swivels, to allow one to face in different directions while sitting on the stool. Second hand swivel bar stools are popular in homes because they are very versatile and take up less room than a table and chairs.

Second hand swivel bar stools come in different sizes, but are usually between 29 and 31 inches (73 to 78 cm) from the floor to the seat. A swivel bar stool may come in many different styles – some are backless, and can slide under a bar or counter when not in use, while others have backs that will take up more space. Some swivel bar stools also have arms, which will also make it more difficult to fit the stool underneath anything but an exceptionally tall counter.

One benefit of second hand swivel bar stools is that they are easier to get in and out of than a tall chair that needs to be pushed back. Swivel bar stools can be customized with seat cushions designed to match your decor. Most bar stools are designed of metal, wood or a combination of both, and give a fairly contemporary look to a room. The seats may be made of wood, plastic, cloth, leather, or suede, to name a few possibilities.

A kitchen can be turned into an eat-in kitchen with the addition of second hand swivel bar stools that can be stored underneath a counter when not in use. In a small apartment, this will save space and money because a dining table will not be needed.

How to Choose the Best Second Hand Mirrored Bedroom Furniture

At Home from Home we stock a wide range of second hand furniture. After doing some research online we have found some useful tips on how to choose the best second hand mirrored bedroom furniture.

Second hand mirrored bedroom furniture is often both beautiful and functional and can provide a classic and elegant look to any bedroom. There are many different types of furniture that can be made in mirrored styles and many different styles of mirrored furniture as well.

Choosing the best second hand mirrored bedroom furniture depends not only on what types of furniture you need, but also aesthetic and practical considerations. Some people find that choosing furniture that is only partially mirrored or mixing this style with other types of furniture cuts down on the potential for the look to be overwhelming.

One major consideration to keep in mind when choosing second hand mirrored bedroom furniture is how much reflection you really want in the bedroom. Many styles of mirrored bedroom furniture break up the mirrors in such a way that not every angle is truly reflective because the mirrors are small, curved, or tinted to reduce reflection while keeping the shine of the material. This can be excellent for parts of the furniture that might be distracting if covered in a true flat mirror, like the front of dressers.

In a bedroom, almost all furniture items can be mirrored at least partially. Headboards, for example, often consist of a mirrored edge with a non-reflective center. Dressers, vanities, and side tables are also popular and may be mirrored in any number of styles. Second hand mirrored bedroom furniture often serves storage purposes, as the need for attractive storage in bedrooms is high. This can provide a great opportunity for the attractive mirrored style to incorporate decorative handles and drawer pulls.

One may be used as an accent table for displaying accessories or other decorative items, or hold a small lamp in an area that needs additional lighting, such as a hallway.

Many people use console tables in hallways, not only as a way to add style and interest, but also for functional purposes. A console table can be ideal for setting down mail, keys, a handbag, and other small items. It can also be used to place things near the door that someone might want to take along when he or she leaves, so they won’t be forgotten. Many people also place a mirror above the table so that individuals can check their appearance as they arrive or leave.

Some of these tables have only one or two legs in the front, and therefore must be secured to the wall. The table itself may be long or short, and the top can be round, square, or rectangular, but it is generally quite narrow. Other styles are self-standing and may be placed against a wall, used alone, or placed behind a sofa or loveseat. As a sofa table, it is generally topped with lighting, greenery, candles, or a few tall accessories to add height to that area or to create a visual division between spaces.

Console tables can be very versatile. Aside from the uses mentioned above, they could be used in a dining room as a small sideboard or serving table. It could serve as a built-in vanity in a small bedroom or even a desk in a small home office.

How to Choose the Best Second Hand Bed Frame

At Home from Home we stock a wide range of bed frames. After doing some research online we have found some useful tips on how to choose the best second hand bed frames.

Choosing the best bed frame and headboard starts with determining the proper size. You will need to know which size mattress you already have or intend to buy. If you are buying new, consider how many people will sleep in the bed at one time, as well as how much space that person or people will need to sleep comfortably.

Once you have determined what size mattress you have or will buy, you will need to buy a bed frame designed for that specific size. The most common sizes are twin, full, queen, and king, though other sizes do exist. After you have figured out the proper size, you will need to consider the materials, style, and cost of the bed frame and you want.

Perhaps the most common materials for a bed frame include hardwoods and steel. Various types of wood fall into the hardwood category, and the defining characteristics of this category include durability, strength, prominent grains and beautiful appearances.

Hardwoods tend to be quite heavy, as well as more expensive than other material options, but the bed frame is likely to last a long time and stay in style during that time. Softwoods such as pine are also available for frame material, and while these woods can also be quite attractive, they are more susceptible to damage and rot.

Metal frames and headboards are also available. Steel is the most common metal used for abed frame and headboard because it is durable and can be quite attractive. Steel can be expensive, especially for thicker gauge steel, though it will generally be less expensive than hardwood frames. Like hardwoods, steel can be fairly heavy, but as long as you choose a headboard that is not overly large, the weight of the bed frame and headboard should be manageable.

How to Clean a Second Hand Fridge Freezer

At Home from Home we stock a wide range of second hand white goods, varying from washing machines to fridge freezers. After doing some research online we have discovered some useful tips on how to clean a second hand fridge freezer.

Start by removing all the food, bottles, and containers. Look at the expiration dates and throw out everything that is near or past that date. Discard everything wrapped in foil or plastic wrap that is not labeled or cannot be identified. Make sure old food is removed from every compartment of your second hand fridge freezer.

The next step is to take all the edible food out and put it in a box in the freezer, if there is enough room. If not, store it in a cool spot next to an air-conditioner, or outside if the weather is cold. This will ensure the edible food does not get mixed up with what has been thrown in the bin.

After, make up a solution of baking soda and water in a spray bottle. Spray the solution all over the surfaces of the second hand fridge freezer and wipe it off with a paper towel. Be sure to wipe out the door gaskets, since they tend to collect a lot of crumbs. Do not use any kind of cleaning agent with any toxic properties. Vinegar can be used, but it may leave an undesirable odor. Remember to clean the ceiling of the fridge as well.

When cleaning the second hand fridge freezer, you may want to put a fresh, opened box of baking soda inside to absorb odors before putting the food back in. Replace all the shelves. If the fridge has a distinct odor, wiping down the shelves with a bit of diluted lemon juice will help clean the odor out without affecting the taste of the food stored inside. Finally, put all your food back into your second hand fridge freezer and clean the outside with a soft cloth.

Add Style to Your Home With Second Hand Georgian Furniture

At Home from Home we stock a wide range of second hand furniture from a variety of different era’s. After doing some research online we have found some useful information about second hand Georgian Furniture.

Second hand Georgian furniture includes home furnishings that date from the mid 18th century to the mid 19th century. Much Georgian furniture design characteristics came in direct response to the heavy, Gothic style of the time. In contrast to these dark and heavy pieces, Georgian furniture styles are much lighter and more refined.

The Georgian period is often divided into three eras, with a different style of furniture distinct to each period. The early Georgian era lasted from roughly 1745 to 1780. During this time, second hand Georgian furniture was characterized by its neo-palladian design, which was inspired by art and architecture of Italy. Early Georgian works were often over-the-top in terms of design and size, and were so expensive that only the very rich could afford them.

By the mid-Georgian period, furniture and design was more heavily based on a neo-classical style, with additional inspiration from the Greeks and Chinese. Furnishings during this era emphasized proportion and balance, and pieces were smaller and more affordable overall. The late Georgian period is often referred to as the golden age of furniture, and it was during this time that Georgian design hit its peak.

Second hand Georgian furniture is characterized by its focus on dainty structures and fine lines. While earlier furniture makers relied on walnut, Georgian era furniture makers turned to mahogany instead. Compared to walnut, mahogany is strong and durable. It’s naturally water resistant, and also offers natural resistance against worms and other pests.

Classic Georgian pieces include wind chairs and chaise lounges with elegant shapes and designs. Couches and chairs with scroll arms are also distinctive of the period. Buyers interested in Georgian furniture can also look for writing desks, marble-topped tables, and corner chairs and tables.
