How to Protect Your Furniture During a Party

Christmas season usually means rushing around, big sales, shopping for the presents for friends and family members, and stressful preparations for parties and dinners. Still, Furniturecart team recommends to slow down and keep in mind what makes Christmas so magical – togetherness, tradition and people around. Bring everyone together for a fun party at your home and do not worry for the consequences. Create wonderful lasting memories for the little kids and get them involved in festive activities for you to both enjoy the holiday season.It only takes a few minutes prior to the event to ensure no unfortunate party ‘memorable gifts’ are found on your couch, dining room set or rug. Follow our simple advice and stay calm!It is fine if you want to protect your furniture and carpeting. And if you do care – cover what you want to be protected. It’s better to invest in a few inexpensive but nice area rugs and couch covers. Before the party begins, place the rugs in areas where the guests are expected. Protect your sofas, chairs or anything that’s upholstered with a decorative throw or fitted cover. It’s an investment keeping you safe from your beloved upholstered living room set replacement. Christmas-themed tablecloth on your gorgeous dining table will serve both protection and festive-mood booster for the guests.

Well before the party have your carpets and upholstered furniture properly cleaned. Psychologically, if the guests see your rugs are spotless and flawless, they’re more likely to remain thoughtful with their glass of red wine or punch.You might have removed extra furniture, accessories to the other rooms or you want to keep some rooms safe from kids, who might have use them when playing hide-and-seek. Establish “do not enter” areas. But leave enough space in the major room for the party and strolling around.

Provide few occasional tables and make sure the major table for the Christmas dinner is big enough to keep all your delicious festive meals. Cocktail and coffee tables are a good idea, as the absence of better options often forces guests to set their drink or plate on any available surface. Before the party, set up the tables in strategic places around, for instance close to your media console/television stand, couches or anywhere people gather.As the party slowly winds down, perform several walk-throughs to pick garbage and empty glasses. This approach has a double service as other than keeping your furniture and carpets spotless, it also makes the clean-up faster after your event is over. Undoubtedly, don’t forget to enjoy yourself during the festive event. Follow the simple protection rules, relax and enjoy the most wonderful holiday season!

Small Space Styling Tips

Turn a small space into the enormous set of brilliant ideas and create a home to admire!

Nowadays more people prefer to choose location over the spacious home, living downtown in apartments instead of moving to the suburbs for a bigger house. Furniture designers respond with many solutions available to help keeping things comfortable and organized in a small space.Multifunctional furniture, smart storage options and décor little tricks will right the ship. This article is definitely for those who live in a:

  • small home
  • apartment
  • studio
  • condo
  • or for those, who are desperate home décor & smart ideas fans

So, let’s start!

Multifunctionality first! Choose a storage ottoman or pieces with hidden storage for your living room, which will serve you double: it could both be used as a storage and a seating area/coffee or cocktail table. Convertible pieces of furniture, like a drop front desk, and space saving home office solutions are easily transformed from a storage space into a workspace.

Optimum! Find an optimal resolution with loveseat instead of bigger sofa, and upholstered bed or platform bed instead of sleigh or canopy bed. Find a balance of something that fits your small apartment but still offers ample free space around. Give up on ambitious style in favor of minimalistic contemporary style. It will take less of space and let your room be less visually overwhelmed. Small-scale table with an option to be transformed to a bigger one, when the guests are around, is a perfect dining room idea. Some of the storage tables offer even more smart ideas. You might definitely find kitchen islands, drop leaf furniture and home bars more than marvelous for a small space dining area in your home.

Don’t let the small space put limits on your right to have the same functionality.

Storage is the key! An abundance of shelves and drawers, as well as the storage furniture will help you keep the stuff you want to be displayed and hide the rest with no sacrificing the space. Bookcases with open shelving will keep the space open and airy. Moreover, let them function as a room divider in a studio or an open layout. Bookcase beds and storage beds, as well as the chests are a good way to save floor space and add extra space to keep the stuff.

Little tricks: light colors will undoubtedly create an open and airy look of any room. Don’t be afraid to play with the contrasts – paint the wall and choose the furniture fabric of a lighter color and add some bright and vivid accents in your room. Mirrors will do a good job making an illusion of a spacious room by reflecting light throughout the space.

And, one more thing worth mentioning: small space accommodations are more cozy and warmer in ambience. So, the only thing you have to do – is to make right decision while choosing the versatile furniture and use few of the useful tips Furniture Cart shared with you today! Stay creative!

Having grounding and balanced energy on both sides of the huge bed you have to have two nightstands at the both sides of the bed, of course. Moreover, nightstand usually has one or more drawers to keep few things stored inside.Bed Bench is another versatile essential worth having at the footboard of your bed. A great way to add an extra seating, stylish accent and a little extra as a storage for magazines, robes, purse.Full-length mirror will help not only to choose the stunning dress and matching shoes for the coming cocktail party, but also will become an accent in décor and visually broaden the space and reflect more light into the room.
