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.

5 College Apartment Essentials to Make the Place Look and Feel Like Home

When you’re moving from a tiny dorm room to your first ever apartment, there are a million things on your mind. You want your place to be comfortable and feel like home. There is so much to consider, from the bedroom furniture to cleaning supplies and utensils that it’s easy to lose track. If you’re behind schedule and are worried that you might not have the essentials down yet, don’t worry because we’ve got you covered. We’ve narrowed it down to five college apartment essentials that will make your temporary dwelling feel just like home.

1. The Bed

Your apartment may already come with a bed, but if not, you’ll need to get your own. It’s probably your first time buying one so make sure you get every fixture you’ll need: a bed frame, box spring, mattress, and covers.

2. A Dresser

Having space for storage is extremely important, especially if you’re a hoarder. Your room may come with a built-in closet. On the off-chance that it doesn’t accommodate your needs, find the perfect dresser here to store away all your necessities.

3. Don’t Forget the Mirror

You’ll realize the need for a mirror when you’re all dressed and ready to go to class, but there’s no way to know how you look. You do want to make the best first impression – don’t you? Get a full-length mirror to take the best #ootd pictures. A mirror can also add much-needed brightness to your room and gives the illusion of space. So, your little college apartment room won’t look so little anymore.

4. A Desk and Chair

A desk and a comfortable, (preferably swivel) chair are must-haves for nights when you’re juggling so many deadlines that you can’t risk accidentally falling asleep.

5. Futon

You have to get a futon, because, believe it or not, you can get tired of lying in bed all day. Any extra space for you to kick back will make a huge difference. It will also be the perfect place to crash on for your friend who is studying with you all night. Now that you’ve got the essentials out of the way, you can start thinking about kitchen, bathroom and cleaning supplies to make your apartment a fully functional living space.

After 7 years, the hotels write the furniture off as depreciation, and profit from furniture being sold as liquidation. The liquidated furniture is sent to hotel liquidators like Universal Hotel Liquidators, and the furniture is inspected before it is sent to the warehouse. Since the furniture is not like the home furniture you see today, you will be getting quality furniture that is better constructed and more durable.
