Searching For Great Household Bargains Has Never Been So Fun

By Guest

If you are interested in turning your home into a comfortable living space, consider shopping for great finds at a discount. Many homeowners decide to shop for only brand new, expensive items. While this may work for some, it leaves you with a lot of empty space and a lot of temporary pieces you know you do not intend to keep. Not to mention shopping from the showroom floor makes your rooms look like they belong on show. While your choices may be stylish, it will feel sterile and lack the homey quality other rooms have. Furthermore, rooms like this are a dime a dozen. If you want a one of a kind space, shop for second hand pieces that can be combined in unique ways. This will take effort, but you will love the end result. You can make neutral pieces unique, and have the confidence to alter rummage sale finds you would not have for brand new, expensive pieces. You are not going to go buy a new living room set and spray paint it cherry red, but you might consider a design risk like this on a few pieces you pick up at a rummage sale. Even if it does not work out, you have only wasted a few dollars. You can also mix and match items to create a completely unique space. If you lack space in your washroom, you can purchase items that can be used for small bathroom storage. Consider a medicine cabinet without mirror which you can make your own with a few updates.

In addition to painting, you can make a lot of other changes. If you find seating pieces that have good bones but just need some freshening up, this is a great project that will not take a lot of time and money.

The important thing is to choose colors and fabrics that suit your style and that you enjoy sitting on, seeing, and touching. Regardless of any design “rules” you know, you need to fill your home with furniture you love.

Take your time when refinishing pieces and you may be surprised by what you are able to accomplish, even if you do not have a lot of experience with redesigning furniture. Another option you have when furnishing your home with second hand pieces is to combine pieces in interesting ways. A shelf and a table can work together to form a hutch. If you are handy with tools, alter items so that are suitable for your space.

For instance, add some shelving to a bookshelf, flip it on its side, and create a sideboard. If you are looking for affordable, unique furnishings, browse the second hand market.
