Three Questions to Ask Before you Purchase New Furniture
Responsive imageBuying new furniture is an exciting moment in your life. It’s a chance to let your creative juices flow and an opportunity for you to create the home of your dreams. Whether you’re buying living room furniture in West Palm Beach or just need to update some simple home décor in West Palm Beach, you can find it all here at Badcock’s Furniture. But before you jump in and start buying, be sure to ask yourself these three questions! You’ll be glad you did!
  • How Much Space Do I Have?

This is the number one most important question to ask because space will determine how much furniture you can get and the size of the furniture you need. If you live in a smaller space or are furnishing a smaller space, you need to consider in terms of what is absolutely essential and what is non-essential in a small space. Consider what purpose each piece of furniture serves. For large spaces, you need to scale your furniture accordingly. Too small of sized furniture will make space look empty, while too large will make it look crowded despite the large size.
  • Who Uses the Space?

Depending on what room you’re furnishing will determine who uses that space. For example, living room furniture in West Palm Beach is probably used by most everyone. This means that you’re going to want furniture that is strong and sturdy to withstand, potentially, excessive wear and tear. Additionally, you want to consider what fabric to pick.

Obviously, for the living room, the room everyone uses, you’re not going to want to pick a white velvet sofa. You’ll probably want something in a darker color or in a fabric that’s easy to clean. Choosing bedroom furniture in West Palm Beach can have a little more wiggle room when it comes to color schemes and fabrics. Unless it’s a room for children, most adults know how to care for light colored fabrics and woods.
  • What Kind of Budget do I Have?

Another extremely important question is what budget are you working with? This will determine not only how much you can buy but what you can buy. While we all wish to have our dream home furnished with our dream furniture, sometimes our wallets and our hearts don’t always match up. Look around and keep your eyes out for sales. You can also buy furniture in pieces. You don’t always have to furnish every single room at once, nor do you need to buy full furniture sets every time you’re thinking about buying new furniture. Your budget will also determine the wood style, type, and fabric type that you can afford. Once you have your budget thought out, you can shop confidently because you know exactly what you can afford and you’ll feel good about buying it.

Drawer Joints - Which Ones Work Best for Quality Furniture?
Responsive imageDrawers aren’t given much attention in today’s modern world despite how often they’re used and such a necessity in day-to-day life. They may even have names like “junk drawers” “drawer with pens”, and other titles people use to organize their assortment of knick-knacks. When shopping around at the furniture store in West Palm Beach, you should keep an eye out for certain drawer joints to see if the furnishings you’re picking out are good quality or not.

The Biscuit Joint

Regardless of how delicious it sounds, it’s a joint you may find in bedroom furniture in West Palm Beach and is one of many on this list. The biscuit joint is a reinforced one that is an oval shape and is usually made out of compressed or dried wood, like beech. This joint is installed on either side of a mortise where the drawer will be connecting and it gives a certain amount of flexibility when being glued to another piece.

The only downside to this joint is if the wood is not cut precisely, you could end up with an imperfect alignment on the drawer. The mortise of the drawer has to be cut precisely to fit around this joint so everything is in perfect alignment, but if not done the results can look haphazard.

Dovetail Joint

You’ve probably encountered this in a furniture store in West Palm Beach at some and it’s one that’s incredibly strong compared to others. The dovetail has a reputation for having a great tensile strength (this means the chances of the drawer being pulled apart) and connects to the sides of the drawer to the front facing area. There is a series of pines that are cut on one part of a board and will interlock to a series of tails that are cut into another board.

These pins and tails have a trapezoidal shape. Once the dovetail joints have been glued together, the joint is completely permanent and doesn’t need any mechanical fasteners to keep it in place. This joint is a sign of expert craftsmanship and is ideal for drawers since they’re constantly being pulled out and pushed back in.

Finger Joint

Similar to the dovetail, it’s another popular woodworking joint you’ve probably encountered in the furniture store in West Palm Beach at one point or another without realizing it. The finger joints join two pieces of wood at right angles, the only difference between this and the dovetail being the pins are square instead of angled. While it doesn’t have the mechanical strength of dovetail, it’s an easier joint to create and once glued does hold a drawer together quite well. It’s ideal for drawers that won’t see a lot of heavy use and are probably found in minor pieces of furniture.

Dado Joint

This is another joint that isn’t given much attention, but it’s still quite strong when used right. The dado has a slot cut into the surface of the wood and another piece is able to slide into it effortlessly and will only stop moving if there’s a stop at the end. The Dado's joint is used primarily for bookshelves, but it’s also been known to be useful for drawers as well to keep the bottoms in place.

The Dado's joint does have to be a bit deeper to give the bottom of the drawer more stability and prevent it from falling through. The collection of these joints are signs of excellent craftsmanship and stability when it comes to your drawers. When you’re shopping around for bedroom furniture in West Palm Beach keep an eye out for these joints since they’re a sign of quality furniture.

They’re not always easy to spot and can be found at the points where a drawer is connected, so you’ll have to pull it out to see them. They’re a sign that the furniture you’re looking at was built with functionality and durability in mind.

How to Make your Guest Room More Welcoming
Responsive imageWhether you have guests for Christmas, to spend a few days over summer break, or any other time of the year, having a comfortable room ready for welcoming them is important. Obviously, you want to make sure that your guests feel comfortable and well-taken-care-of when they are in your home. Any type of space outfitted with the most basic of things can work as a guest room, as long as you show your love and are happy to open up your home for them. But providing a well-thought-out space where your guests have all that they need, will make them feel even more special and make your bond stronger. You need not to feel overwhelmed at the thought of setting up a welcoming guest room. Even if you have no decorating experience and a very limited budget, you can still successfully create a wonderful guest room. Here are some useful tips.

Make it clean and comfy

While you do not need to break the bank and get the most expensive furniture and décor, keeping the guest room spotless and comfortable is sure to make your guests happy. Make sure the room is vacuumed, dusted, and aired so that it feels and smells inviting. Nobody wants to be in a musty-smelling untidy room. As for the furniture, you can have a comfortable bed with fresh bed linens, an ottoman at the foot of the bed to store additional pillows and blankets, comfortable chairs to sit, a desk if there are space and a nightstand. Depending on the size of the room, you can choose to provide a bed and a chair or two at the very least. For buying all these items, you can visit Badcock Home Furniture & More where you will find the best quality and affordably priced furniture and home decor West Palm Beach has to offer.

Good lighting

Along with a comfortable place to rest, you also want to make sure your guest room is properly lighted. If the room is so located that it gets plenty of sunlight during the day, then it would be great for your guests to enjoy the natural light during the daytime. For the nighttime, or if your guests prefer indoor lighting, make sure to have a lamp and/or functioning ceiling lights, a lighted alarm clock, lighted make-up mirror, a desk lamp, and a light control near the bed so your guests do not have to stumble around in the dark. While you do not absolutely need all these lighting options, go with what makes sense with the room, your guests’ needs, and works with your budget.

Plenty of storage

Have you thought about where your guests would place their luggage and keep their personal belongings while they stay with you? Have some closet space for hanging clothes, an extra chest of drawers if possible, and maybe a luggage rack. Again, think about what items work best for you and your guests. And remember to visit us at Badcock Home Furniture & More, the leading furniture store West Palm Beach has.

Provide privacy

Provide window coverings or blinds that offer privacy and also add to the character of the room. Provide a set of keys to your home if needed and also instructions for the security system if you have one.

Add special, welcoming touches

Small touches here and there may not take a lot of effort, time, or money, but can make a huge difference in how welcome your guests feel. You could place a small pillow on the bed with a sweet welcoming message, print and frame your Wi-Fi information so your guests can have super easy access without asking, have a gallery wall of family pictures, add a tray of fresh flowers and a scented candle to instantly freshen up the room, and place a tray of small wrapped snacks/candies/chocolates for nibbling anytime your guest want. These and other such small thoughtful gestures would be much appreciated by your guests. At Badcock Home Furniture & More, not only do we carry the latest bedroom furniture West Palm Beach has, but also home accents, appliances, electronics, and more. So visit us today in West Palm Beach to easily set up a guest room today!

What Is A Leaf Table?
Responsive imageMost people won't think too much about their dining room tables. As long as it has a flat top and some chairs, it's working correctly, right? However, you have more options than you'd think for a dining room table. Let’s discuss the leaf table and why you might want to consider one for your home.

The Problem With Regular Tables

A regular dining room table is a standard flat top, sized to fit a certain amount of chairs under it. If you have a dining room or a lot of space in your home, then these are perfect for you. However, not everyone has a home like this. Sometimes you don't have a separate dining room, dining rooms West Palm Beachbut you still want a table where you and your family can eat your meals together. Sometimes you just don't have a lot of room, and so a large dining room table will always be in the way. Whatever the reason may be, a dining room table isn't always practical. Because of this, many individuals who are searching for furniture for their dining areas have had to find other options.

About The Leaf Table

So, how do you solve these problems? Many people decide to go with the leaf table. Also known as a drop leaf table, these pieces of furniture resemble a regular dining room table. When you need some extra room though, you can actually fold away a portion of the table, making it smaller and more concise.

Leaf tables work by having the tabletop in three separate parts. The middle part of the table is solid and stays put, but the two sides of the table actually drop down on a hinge, so they hang at the side. This is where the name 'drop leaf' comes from. Many homeowners have decided to go with leaf tables as they offer a lot of flexibility to their homes. The solid section of the table provides a usable surface, even when the table is folded up and put to the side of the room.

Many homeowners choose to use this as storage, especially if their tables aren't often used. The table also means that if you have extra guests for dinner, if you're hosting a board game night, or just need extra table space, you can set it up in a matter of seconds. Leaf tables are easy to set up, and you can get the tablespace you need right away.

What Other Options Are There?

If you're not sure which kind of table will be right for you, think about your needs on a day to day basis. Do you need to use your dining room table every day? Do you have the room to have a table out every day? If so, then a regular dining room table might work perfectly for you!

But, if you don't have space for a table on a daily basis, then a leaf or gateleg table may be for you. If you can fold up your table and put it somewhere unobtrusive, then the gateleg or leaf table will probably be perfect for you when you do need a table.

Now that you know more about your options when it comes to dining room tables, you can pick one that's designed around you and your needs. If you need more help, visit your local furniture store and ask for help choosing a table. You'll soon have one that's practical and looks amazing in your home!

Three Signs It's Time for New Furniture
Responsive imageIf your furniture pieces are outdated and are showing signs of deterioration, perhaps it's time to let them go. Remember, your home is an important place where you spend time with family besides entertaining visitors and friends. Therefore, it requires high-quality furniture from our furniture store West Palm Beach. However, replacing furniture sometimes isn't easy because we've grown accustomed and might be skeptical of change. Bear in mind that furniture isn't something you purchase randomly. Rather, it must be a well-thought-out decision to avoid any regrets. Fortunately, our store also gives you the opportunity to select the appropriate home décor West Palm Beach. If you're still unsure whether it's time to invest in new furniture, this list will give you a clue.

They are Beginning to Break Down

The most obvious indication that you need to replace your existing furniture is if they're beginning to crumble, peel off, and rot. If your wood, teak, or wicker chair is beginning to break down, you must act immediately by acquiring new ones. When sitting down on a couch, you shouldn't hear it crack or creak and you certainly shouldn't have concerns about it breaking. However, if the sofa is on its last leg, these things may occur when sitting down. Perhaps it's possible to fix a certain piece of furniture, but if it's beyond repair, the only solution is a new couch. Obviously, you want to avoid furniture pieces that seem like they were abused over time. Besides being an eyesore, they can be hazardous to use too. Beware that you may end up sustaining injuries from old and wobbly furniture pieces like tables and chairs. For this reason, you should consider our sofas West Palm Beach where you'll find highly functional pieces that will meet your home's immediate needs. Moreover, our broad selection comprises rustic and contemporary pieces, giving you the freedom of choice when it comes to furniture.

Change in Tastes

As individuals, we change and so does our style. If you find that your furniture no longer reflects your style or taste, perhaps it's time you invested in new pieces that represent your personality. A time comes when we realize that the furniture items we bought as young professionals are no longer functional and attractive when we became established and mature professionals. In other cases, you might have some extra cash and wish to upgrade your living room. If you find yourself sizing up other couches when visiting friends and family, perhaps it's time you indulged yourself and picked the beautiful sofa you've dreamt of having. In the event that you decide to work in your living room, our store won't disappoint you, and most importantly, you won't need to travel to various stores to meet your needs. We have everything you need under one roof, so begin shopping and you'll have your space outfitted perfectly in a short time.

Torn Upholstery and You Sinking into the Furniture

You can't repair most rips in upholstery without it being noticeable. Furthermore, the more you sit and lay on the couch, the more the fabric stretches. This implies that a tiny rip could grow into a large one fast even if you use a cover to conceal it. Remember, the filing of a ripped couch can come out or be exposed to elements that can hasten the breakdown. Aside from normal wear, damage to the fabric can occur because of spills and other accidents. Although you may patch some tiny rips and tears occasionally, if you're constantly repairing your sofa, it's time you replaced it with a new one. Another apparent sign that it's time for furniture replacement is when you find yourself sinking into the couch when sitting down. Good furniture will feel comfortable when you sit on it. However, the furniture's structure can begin falling apart after years of use. Consequently, you'll find yourself sinking into it whenever you sit. You may even feel the springs situated beneath the cushions. Remember, the couch should have sufficient padding to support your weight when you sit. Therefore, if the cushions become flat and can no longer support your weight, it's time to consider a new set. Aside from the additional effort required to get off the couch, such furniture isn't good for the posture. Therefore, if you wish to avoid injury, it's sensible to purchase new furniture when it no longer offers firm support.
