At Home from Home we often stock second hand modular furniture. For those who don’t know what this is, we have found some useful tips on line to narrow it down.
Second hand modular furniture refers to pre-made units that can be combined in different ways to furnish a room. Modular furnishings are often flat packed for home assembly. Most furniture companies have a showroom with their second hand modular furniture products set up so customers can see what the items look like assembled. On line shoppers may shop through virtual furniture galleries. There are many types of attractive modular systems available for each room in a home.
Kitchen modular furniture systems are popular today. Most manufacturers of modular kitchen furnishings offer upper cabinets with options such as single or double doors and solid or glass door panels. Box-shaped cabinets with pre-drilled holes on the sides allow shelves to be added according to how much space is needed between each shelf.
A lower modular kitchen unit may have a sink already inserted in the top with cupboard space underneath. Lower units may have shelves, drawers or a combination and may be adjusted to fit a specific kitchen. For example, after a rectangular base unit is chosen, it may often be expanded by adding on a rounded modular section to increase a kitchen’s workspace and storage space.
Dining room furniture may also be modular. Some second hand modular furniture systems for dining rooms feature tables that may be added on to create more seating by placing several of the same table sections together. Living room modular furniture often includes sectional sofas. Sectional sofas have different units or sections that create a whole sofa and some of these may include beds or large footstools as part of the design.
Bedroom modular pieces include dressers, head boards and night tables that are pre-made and ready to assemble. Dressers may have the option to add an extra hutch or top dresser section to allow for more storage.
Children’s bedroom modular furniture is especially popular as different pieces can be added or modified as the child grows. For example, some baby cribs are designed to be converted into a single bed after the child outgrows the crib. There are also bunk beds that convert to twin beds or to a larger bed if the twins are pushed together.
