    Creating a Glam Girl's Bedroom

    Last updated 1 day 17 hours ago

    Teenagers are notoriously cluttered creatures, so it’s a good idea to give them the tools they need to keep their rooms organized. Watch this video for a look at how one girl’s bedroom went from drab to dramatic.

    Kids need space in their bedrooms for their belongings, from school books and instruments to keepsakes and mementos from friends and family. Instead of a few standalone bookshelves, try using a larger armoire with open shelving on the top half as storage. Trade in the child-sized dresser for one with more drawers and organizational options that’s more suited to a teenager who will soon be a young adult. Painting the walls in a new, fresh color will give the room more life and will make your teenage girl happy to spend time in her room.

    Last updated 9 days ago

    When you retreat to your bedroom each evening, it should feel as though you're escaping the stress of your everyday life and entering a calmer, more relaxing space. If the atmosphere in your master bedroom is anything but soothing, then be sure to take a look at this HGTV video for tips on how to transform the room's look and feel. By changing up the color tones and letting some extra light into the room, you can enhance its ambience and charm.

    Another way to take your master bedroom from drab and cold to warm and inviting is to add meaningful accessories here and there that bring back special memories.

    Selecting the Best Bed Frame for Your Room

    Last updated 18 days ago

    The right bed frame can have a huge impact on the appearance of your bedroom as well as the level of comfort you experience in the space. The first step to take when selecting a bed frame is to consider how large the frame needs to be, given the number of people sharing the bed and the dimensions of the bedroom. Make sure that the frame is large enough to accommodate each sleeper but not too large that it makes the surrounding space appear crowded and smaller than it actually is.

    Be sure to also ask yourself what type of material looks best in the bedroom based on your décor. When shopping at the Home Consignment Center, you will likely find that most frames are made from either wood or metal and that each varies in style, from modern to classic. If you're still unsure about which material or size might be best for your room, then speak with our friendly staff at one of our Austin consignment stores. Call the Home Consignment Center at (925) 309-7231 to find your nearest location.

    Your Guide to Bedroom Accent Pillows

    Last updated 23 days ago

    For many people, accent pillows can be difficult items to incorporate into the look of a bedroom. From mixing colors and patterns to purchasing the right amount of pillows from an Austin used furniture store, there are plenty of factors to consider when adding these accessories into the mix. Here is a helpful guide to bedroom accent pillows:

    Know When to Keep Things Simple
    If your design taste is simple and elegant, then consider purchasing just one interesting accent pillow from your Austin consignment store. Look for a star pillow that will hold its own against your standard shams and sheets, without demanding too much attention. The goal is to create a visual balance so that the pillow looks like it was made for the surrounding bedding.

    Use Patterns to Liven Up Basic Bedding
    Is your duvet cover a crisp white? Or perhaps even a neutral sand hue? If your existing bedding features basic whites, tans, or earth tones, then consider purchasing one to three lively patterned throw pillows to add some drama to the space. Stick to colors that complement the hues featured in your bedroom but don't be afraid to experiment with patterns that are not already present in the home.

    Mix Sizes for a Funkier Look
    Another simple and foolproof way to incorporate accent pillows into the bedroom is to buy several that vary in size and then place them in an interesting manner. As a general rule of thumb, all larger accent pillows should be placed behind smaller pillow and bolster pillows should be placed at the very front if they are to be featured in the new, funkier bedroom design.

    If you could use more advice on how to purchase the perfect accent pillows for your home, then come visit a Home Consignment Center store in Austin. For over 20 years we've been helping customers furnish their homes with beautiful and high quality pillows and other bedroom accessories.

    Making a Small Dining Room More Visually Interesting

    Last updated 29 days ago

    If the dining room in your home is less-than-generous when it comes to square footage, then you may find yourself struggling to create a floor plan that maximizes floor space. As you see in this video, however, not only is it possible to take a tiny dining room and transform it into a chic, inviting, and open space, but it's also an exciting and simple process. The key to making the space appear larger is to distract the eye with bright and bold accessories that area placed throughout the room.

    A timeless, traditional dining room set will appear more modern and eye-catching when surrounded by lighting fixtures, artwork, and mirrors that fit within a more eclectic style genre. If you're uneasy about introducing too much color into the small space, then focus on one fun show-stopping piece and complement it with additional accessories.

    From dining room tables to decorative accessories, you will find everything you need to furnish your dining space right here at the Home Consignment Center. Call (925) 309-7231 to learn more about the items we buy and consign.
