3 Things to Consider When Buying Used Furniture

Thinking of upgrading your furniture? If you are looking to invigorate your home or office space, but not looking to spend a fortune then you should consider purchasing liquidated furniture. Used furniture may have been built with quality structural components and only need a ‘face lift’. When choosing second hand furniture, look for high quality, durable pieces that will not only withstand the test of time but also keep your space looking fresh and updated. Here are three tips you need to keep in mind when you’re buying used furniture.

1. Consider the Type of Wood for Durability

Look for used furniture that’s made from hardwoods like maple and oak as these materials are known to be strong and durable. It’s advisable to avoid sofas and other pieces that are made from softwoods, such as pine lumber as it may not be able to withstand pressure or weight over a long period of time.

2. Pay Attention to the Structure of the Furniture

Buying used furniture from furniture stores is an economical alternative to buying expensive furniture from high-end brands, but you need to be mindful of items that have to be self-assembled. They may not have the original structural intent they had when they were assembled the first time.

3. Don’t Be Afraid of Simple Fixes

You should make sure that you thoroughly examine these furniture pieces in person before buying. If there are minor signs of wear and tear like scratches and dents, do not be wary. These are simple fixes that can be handled at home and are still likely more cost effective than buying a brand new piece of furniture. Choosing a furniture wholesaler with a good reputation is important so that you know even with signs of wear and tear, you are getting high quality furniture.

Final Words

Contrary to popular belief, buying second-hand furniture and giving them a new life at your home can actually be quite rewarding. If you’re on the lookout for furniture liquidators in New England, UHL (Universal Hotel Liquidators) may just be the right option for you. They offer commercial furnishing products at wholesale prices and also have the capacity to provide furnishing for any space at amazing deals.

Redesign On a Dime

On today's episode of ReDesign on a Dime, we have a young couple who won a Redesign on a Dime contest from Universal Hotel Liquidators. This is a full furniture makeover, consisting of a couch, coffee table, side chair, art work, and much more! Our large warehouse supplied all of the beautiful furniture and decorations to furnish the home, but at a low cost with tons of furniture deals. We added accent pillows, candles, lamps, and decorations to add a classic touch, and bring the whole room together. Our designer made the room pop from the red couch to the floral accents. The couple was completely surprised, and loved how welcoming their new space looked! To be able to design your dream room, contact us at 203-776-7000 today!
