Good food and comfort in your dining room.

Good food and comfort in your dining room. | interior design | Scoop.it
Give your dining room a new look with a set of dining chairs from our furniture store in Kent. The choice of material and colour can make a big difference.
Thornburrows's insight:

When you have invited guests for a meal creating a relaxed, cozy and comfortable atmosphere where everyone can sit back and enjoy your cooking is paramount. The dining room table, chairs, covers and the décor of the room are all just as important as each and add style and elegance to the your home. If you are thinking of updating your dining room but love your table too much to change it why not consider just changing the chairs?
Of course, it goes without saying, that the new dining room chairs you select from a furniture store in Kentmust go together well with the style of the table you already have and match the general decor of your room.

The space where the chairs would be placed should also be clearly defined in order to avoid a crowded or stuffy room. Before you leave home in search of stylish and accessible chairs to furnish your dining room, you should bear this in mind, otherwise, the wrong mixing of styles, or buying chairs that are too big for the existing space will spoil the overall look that you want.
Secondly, consider the material you want the chairs to be made from, especially if you want both comfort and style in the same setting. Wooden chairs can be elegant and classy, but do they offer the comfort you expect while having a wonderful dinner surrounded by guests? A great compromise would be to buy stylish wooden chairs from a furniture sale in Kent, and then add cushions for more comfort. You can match the color and texture of cushions with the rest of the room, so no harm done either to the neatness of the room or your personal comfort.

On the other hand, if you are into contemporary and modern furniture styles, wood might seem to you out of fashion or just unable to match the comfort and style offered by modern trends of Dining room chairs. From modular to patterned upholstered chairs, from black to carmine, the sky is the limit when it comes to meeting the different tastes and budgets of everyone.

Freshen up your dining room. | interior design | Scoop.it
The festive season is over and you will appreciate how important the dining room is. Take advantage of our furniture sale in Kent to give it a new look.
Thornburrows's insight:

Over the recent festive season I’m sure that you found that your dining room became the most important room in your home. Of course over the years I’ll bet that most of your family meetings and get-togethers with friends have taken place there. So if you are planning to buy new dining room furniture from a superb furniture store in Kent choosing the right furniture to suit your home and your decor can seem a little daunting. However, choosing the right furniture and designing and decorating your dining room beautifully can make every meal that you sit down to eat a memorable and special occasion for everyone.

Dining room furniture comes in a huge variety, including dining tables, dining chairs, extension tables, wine racks, centre tables, benches, settees, stools, sofas, and a lot more. Since different types of dining furniture pieces are available, you must choose wisely. It is important to consider the size of your dining room before buying any dining furniture. The furniture pieces that you buy must fit well within the available space. If your dining room is small buy small sized dining table and a few chairs. But if your dining room is large and spacious, you can buy a dining table set with multiple chairs, cabinets, sideboards, and other furniture pieces. The number of people that are there in your family will also determine the size and number of furniture pieces that you need to buy for your dining room.

Another important point to consider when buying dining room furniture is the material and the color of the furniture. Dining furniture is usually made out of wood, steel, plastic, and glass. Wood furniture not only looks elegant and lends a classy look to the dining room, but it also lasts for considerably longer. You also need to make sure that the color of the tables, chairs, and other furniture pieces blends well with the overall decor of your home.
When buying your dining room furniture, it is very important to consider the actual style of the furniture. Whatever you choose, it must reflect your individual style of living and should complement the overall theme and style of your home.

So when you are considering all the choices available to you the best advice I can offer is to take your time and visit our furniture sale in Kent. There you can browse to your heart’s content.

Give a guest a good night on a sofa bed.

Give a guest a good night on a sofa bed. | interior design | Scoop.it
The easy way to upgrade your living room and provide accommodation for an overnight guest - buy a stylish sofa bed from our furniture store in Kent.
Thornburrows's insight:

If you’re looking to upgrade your living room to a more modern look and feel and would also like to find a way to add some room for overnight guests in your home, why not think about visit a furniture store in Kent, have a browse around and select a sofa bed. These great beds are so functional and look fantastic.

If you’re looking to build a stunning modern living room from the ground up, consider starting with a deluxe sofa bed. These great sofas are sensational, stylish, comfortable, and conveniently fold out into a bed when the need arises. Whether you’ve got guests coming for a stay for Christmas and have run out of bedroom space, sofa beds really do define the word functional.

I have memories of a “bed settee” that my mother had…it was always a nightmare to set it up as a bed and then there are the memories of those steel bars underneath the cushions that made for a very uncomfortable night. When it was in use as a settee it was, without a doubt, one of the most uncomfortable items of furniture to sit on, simply because the only way that you could sit was bolt upright! Thankfully things have moved on and the sofa beds at our furniture store in Orpington are exactly what they say they are… a comfortable sofa that converts easily into a comfortable bed!

Probably the greatest feature of these stylish sofas that also become beds is that they don’t have to be taken apart and rolled out like that horrible bed settee. Instead, with a few simple clicks, they flatten out for a cushioned soft place to rest. Then in the morning, you simply click and click again, and you have your beautiful sofa back.

So, no more worrying about overnight guests and where you will put them!

Will your bed fit through your bedroom door?

Will your bed fit through your bedroom door? | interior design | Scoop.it
Fitting new bedroom furniture can be a headache if you don't measure up both your bed and the mattress.
Thornburrows's insight:

I suppose you want to answer “Of course it will” to this question so perhaps I should have asked “Will your mattress fit through your bedroom door?” I am asking this particular question because we all assume that, when you shop for bedroom furniture in Kent, if the bed will fit your pre-measured doorway so will the mattress.However, most double divan beds these days come in two halves which are the bolted together, and self assembly wooden ones come flat packed. All very straightforward, but a friend of mine, having taken my advice and measured every doorway leading to his bedroom, never thought for one moment that a huge king-sized mattress would actually be too big to go up the stairs let alone through the bedroom doorway! So the first night in his new home was spent sleeping on the floor. Not a happy chap as you can imagine!

I know it’s not funny, but the moral to this little tale is either, do not choose to live in the tiniest cottage that you can find with the narrowest staircase known to man, or buy a mattress that can be vacuum packed to a manageable size to fit into your hobbit house!

A furniture store in Kent like ours of course would have gone through every measurement you could think of and many more besides before a delivery date was made. Always best to have every probability covered so that on “delivery day” you can stand back and watch you brand new bed sliding serenely through your front door, up your staircase and through your bedroom door. No nights sleeping on the floor for you!

Tips on buying a new sofa.

Tips on buying a new sofa. | interior design | Scoop.it
If you are thinking of buying a new sofa from a furniture store in Kent here are a few useful tips.
Thornburrows's insight:

When buying sofas in Kent think about where you plan to put them and what they will be used for. Is the sofa for your living room, family room or even your study or home office? If you need one for a family room, it may be better to opt for a sofa that can withstand a bit of rough and tumble, while one for the home office may need to be more of a show piece.
Equally if you have a large living room, a small sofa will feel lost and out of place, consider a suite or perhaps add more statement chairs like a leather recliner?
On a more practical note – it is important to check if your new sofa will fit through the door when it’s delivered and measure doorways, simple but could ultimately affect your final decision on the size of sofa you get.
Achieving both style and comfort really means that when you visit a furniture store in Kent you need to spend some time trying out different sofas and sitting on them as you might at home. You will soon know which kind of sofa you find most comfortable, but it’s crucial to consider exactly how the sofa will work with your room.

If you have rooms with high ceilings then sofas that are more upright with high backs and cushions are best, but for smaller rooms go for low back sofas which help give the illusion of more height in a room.
Sofas with slender arms also lend themselves to smaller rooms giving a sense of space and a corner sofa can be a smart way of using a room more efficiently.

How to avoid stains on your sofa.

How to avoid stains on your sofa. | interior design | Scoop.it
Getting rid of stains on sofas can be quite a difficult business but our furniture store in Kent provides this service automatically with every sofa.
Thornburrows's insight:

In the past, you’ll remember that when you owned a fabric covered sofa, if there was a disaster like a liquid spill, the liquid would quickly soak into the material and will be so much more difficult to clean. You also had the risk of a stain once it dried, not to mention the fact that you would have a wet spot on the sofa for a few hours!

Nowadays, thank goodness all fabric furniture can be treated with an anti stain treatment – in fact at our furniture store in Kent we automatically offer you this service. Of course with a leather sofa this is not as much of a problem because much of the liquid will roll right off of the surface of the leather and what liquid does remain can be easily wiped off with a clean cloth.

Another thing that has changed for the better is that you are no longer as restricted regarding the size of your doorways and size of sofas, it makes the job of finding the right shape and size of sofas is so much easier. One of the main problems with the full corner sofa has always been that it was very large and heavy, so making it difficult to get through the front door of many homes and even difficult to place within the home. That problem has been resolved with most modern sofa designs.

These large corner sofas now often come in the form of a section corner sofa. The sections of the sofa hook together in a way that makes them look and feel like a single unit yet offering the ability to unhook them and move the pieces individually. Plus, often the backs of the pieces even come off offering even greater flexibility. A small corner sofa with recliners is great if you have a large room with adequate space for it. These sofas, of which we have a huge selection at our store, offer excellent comfort and style.

How to Write Great Headlines That Go Viral | Sendible

How to Write Great Headlines That Go Viral | Sendible | interior design | Scoop.it

Wanna know a secret? The headline of this post alone, with proper placement and sharing of the article of course, might take this viral.

 

The good people over at KISSmetrics did some research a few years back about what makes a good headline, and the results were very helpful. The interesting thing about writing is that while verbiage and colloquialisms will change over time and distance, the basics of communication always remain the same.

 

All that to say that a quality formula for developing a headline will stay pretty evergreen, as true a decade or two from now as it is today. The method the author developed became SHINE, and I personally found it very helpful. So why not share it?...

Some are made from solid materials such as wood, steel, and plastic, while others are upholstered, making them extremely comfortable to relax in. Upholstered armchairs may be sold as part of a living room suite with a matching sofa, allowing a family to choose exactly where they want to sit… Some armchairs at our furniture store in Kent come with a matching complementary footstool, taking relaxation and comfort to a whole new level.

Wood or metal furniture? It's your choice.

Wood or metal furniture? It's your choice. | interior design | Scoop.it
If you plan to buy dining room furniture in Kent then having a choice of wood or metal is possible in most furniture stores in Kent.
Thornburrows's insight:

Choosing the best furniture that is made of top quality materials might be an overwhelming experience considering the huge selection of material types and numerous styles available today. When shopping for dining room furniture in Kent we know that the type of furniture you want to buy may depend upon your preference but other factors such as your budget and the design of your room will have to be considered as well.

Prioritizing your requirements carefully would enable you to select the right furniture for your home. When you want to buy new furniture for your house, the first thing you need to assess is the type of material used in the manufacture of furniture. Wood, metal, plastic, rattan and wicker are some of the common materials used today.

Wood is still the most common material used in furniture and it has remained most popular choice around the world. Almost all the furniture stores in Kent sell furniture made of wood. Wooden furniture not only looks appealing but is also considered long-lasting. Wood can withstand the effects of both damp and central heating very well. One of the great things about this type of furniture is that if you want to change the overall look of your wooden furniture a quick coat of paint will do the trick. There are special paints available in the market that will keep the original shine and gloss of the wood.

Metal furniture is thought to be a more economical option when compared with wooden furniture. It can be the best alternative for customers who want to have the durability of wood but want something a little different. Furniture made of metal is also an ideal option if you do not want high maintenance costs. Wrought iron furniture is considered very expensive but is still incredibly popular among our customers who are looking for a classic look such as wrought iron dining room table with a glass top. This works really well if your dining room is not large enough to take a heavy wooden refectory type table. A glass topped table will give your room a much lighter airy feel.

Move your furniture easily with these handy tips. | interior design | Scoop.it
Having bought say, a sofa from a furniture store in Kent here are some helpful tips about how to move it around your house in a safe manner.
Thornburrows's insight:

So, you have been shopping at a furniture store in Kent and now all you have to do is wait for it to be delivered. Of course, you may decide, once the piece is in place, that you would prefer it placed in another room and now you need to move it. The delivery men have left and now it’s all in your hands! Do not panic…here are a few tips to help.

Most people, quite rightly, measure the actual space where a piece of furniture is to be placed, but not many think to measure the actual route to get it there especially if you have to take it up a staircase involving a turn halfway up.

The most useful tip that I have for any furniture move you are making yourself is to establish clear directional commands before you start. You and your moving partner should mentally label the front, back, top and bottom of the piece before you evens start it on it’s way. So when one person says, “Now turn it towards the front” you’ll know exactly what they mean… which makes everything so much clearer when you’re stuck in a stairwell and can’t see anything but the floor. Not to mention the “tense” situation that will, for sure, crop up if one of you makes the wrong move!

How to move heavy furniture.

Moving heavy furniture around can be a risky business and can easily lead to injury. If you are buying new furniture in Kent here are some top tips.
Thornburrows's insight:

Whether you’re moving house or just rearranging your furniture for a new look, moving heavy or small pieces is a big job. We all know from experience that things like chairs, tables, small cabinets and bookcases are probably no problem, but when it comes to much bigger things like beds, wardrobes dining tables, sofas, recliner armchairs, and pianos they all have “lift me and you’ll end up with bad back” written all over them. I have lost count of the times that a certain member of my family, has tried to lift or move something that patently needs two people to move it into position, and has ended up in agony with a strained back.

If you are shopping for new furniture in Kent and not just thinking about re-arranging what you have, then you will be helped in every way possible to make sure that your furniture is delivered on time and placed exactly where you want it.

However, at some time, it is inevitable that you will want to move something in your home, so just use these straightforward techniques to move heavy, awkward items without ruining your back, your house or the furniture!

Bend and Hook” chairs around corners.Stand your sofas up on end.Use straps around the furniture, this will give you something to hang on to.Don’t try to carry or drag large items just slide them gently along.Always, if you can cover and protect your furniture with blankets or sheets of plasticMake a simple sling to move your mattress.If you have a box spring mattress you should be able to fold it.Decide exactly where in the room you are going to place this piece of very heavy furniture before you even move it an inch.

We can all envisage what will happen if you ask for beautiful, and very large sofa, purchased from a furniture store in Kent for instance, has to be hauled all around the room until the  perfect place is found!

Your choice of bedroom furniture can make all the difference to its ambiance. At our furniture store in Kent we have something to suit every taste.
Thornburrows's insight:

When you are planning a makeover of your bedroom I suppose that there are a minimum two choices that you have to make in terms of how you want the room to “feel” A friend of mine has just re-fitted her bedroom and wanted it to feel and look like an impersonal hotel bedroom. I have to say I don’t get that concept but to each his own!
Personally I like my bedroom to feel like a comfy welcoming room where I can sometimes escape. I like good bedside lighting for reading in bed, warm restful colours, beautifully designed furniture and most of all a comfortable bed!
Bedroom furniture is usually something that you keep for years and years, so it’s crucial when you are buying bedroom furniture in Kent that you select pieces that you will be happy to live with for some years to come.
If you choose wisely, rustic bedroom furniture can be the perfect choice for your bedroom. Bedroom furniture such as beds, wardrobes, chests of drawers, and bedside tables come in a variety of rustic styles such as Country Cottage or Mexican for instance. Bedroom furniture like this will give your bedroom a simple, but cosy look.
The most important thing is that you are comfortable in your bedroom. This means choosing the right bedroom furniture at a furniture store in Kent and then adding other bits and pieces like pictures and soft furnishings to finish the overall look. Your personal choices will truly make it “your” room.

Time to choose a beautiful, cosy, comfortable brand new sofa from a furniture store in Kent. However, it makes a lot of sense to try it out before you buy.
Thornburrows's insight:

So, you have decided that your sofa has had it’s day. Time to choose a beautiful, cosy, comfortable brand new one from a furniture store in Kent. The best part of it will be taking your time to stroll around the showroom and testing each one out. You will be able to sit on every single one, put your feet up and relax! Just imagine you are sitting in your living room armed with a good book or the daily paper. When you are shopping for sofas in Kent will you select a two or a three seater, with a footstool or without? Then of course there is the colour and the fabric, the choice is all yours.
Once you have decided what type of sofa you need, you will need to concentrate on what type of back should be on your sofa. There are generally four types of backs to choose from: tight back, attached pillow back, loose pillow back, and loose multi pillow backs.
A tight back sofa is a sofa with no pillows. It sits upright and the fabric chosen is easier to clean because there is no way to remove the fabric to clean it.
An attached pillow back refers to a sofa that actually has the pillows sewn to the back of the sofa. This particular type of sofa is easy to maintain, in that, there are no pillows to rearrange; however, it can be more difficult to clean. The pillows cannot be turned if they get stained so it is important to choose a fabric that is easy to clean and one that wears well.
A loose pillow back sofa is one that has the same number of pillows as cushions. The pillows are not attached to the sofa back and the loose pillows allow them to be turned to extend the life of the pillow.

There are many guides to laying down carpets but this furniture store in Kent provides this information about laying a carpet in Kent.
Thornburrows's insight:

There are printed buying guides for carpet buyers. It is important for the consumers to go over this buying guide before purchasing carpets. If you know someone who knows a lot about buying carpets, that person could be your personal guide. But if you really want to be in charge, you will learn all the things you need to know below.

What is a Well-made Carpet?
One of the most important things to learn when purchasing carpets is to know whether or not it is made really well. Look at things like the backing of the carpet, the fibre, pile density, the type of dye being used, the stain resistant treatments, and of course, the finishing.

With top quality carpets like ours there will be two layers of backing. First, there will be a primary backing; this is where you can actually see the fibers. And then, there is the secondary backing; this is made to squeeze in the fibers. These should be made carefully and with great workmanship to maintain the quality of the carpets. When looking for high quality carpets in Kent we are here to help in any way we can.

Did you know that sofas started as benches? | interior design | Scoop.it
When you enter a furniture store in Kent aiming to buy a sofa, you are probably unaware of the humble beginnings of this item.
Thornburrows's insight:

Did you know that sofas began life as benches over a thousand years ago and slowly became indoor seating when the rich and royal decided to bring comfort into their homes? As early designers began to understand textiles and materials, benches began to be padded with natural materials like horsehair, hay, greenery, and feathers. It wasn’t until the late 1700s that furniture suites became affordable and lost their status as wealthy luxuries. Nowadays there are few living rooms without suites in one form or another. There is a wide array of choices to make when shopping for furniture in Kent. The materials used can make a huge difference to the impact of a suite, as can the type of seating, the filling, the cover, and more.

A reclining armchair,, known in the United States as a La-Z-Boy or recliner, is designed similarly to a basic armchair, with a straight back and arms. It is characterised by its footrest that pops out as the chair is reclined. These chairs offer the sitter the maximum amount of comfort. Reclining chairs are often able to adjust to different levels of incline, from a slight angle to lying almost completely flat. Parker Knoll recliners are not only used in living rooms but in other spaces such as the master bedroom, or the snug or the study. These chairs come in various styles. Double recliners have two individually reclined sections attached to each other. This allows a pair of sitters to adjust the chair individually to different levels of incline simultaneously.

When you go into a furniture store in Kent you should be aware that even Parker Knoll chairs have a history.
Thornburrows's insight:

It may seem obvious but armchairs tend to take up more space than chairs without arms. Their bulk and heaviness often makes them difficult to move. Armchairs come in various colours, materials and in a wide variety of comfort levels. When you are shopping at a furniture store in Kent always consider all of the designs plus the various materials used in their manufacture before you make your final decision. Parker Knoll chairs are always a good choice, especially of they are in a sale.
