Simple Ways to Spruce Up Your Living Room for the Holidays

With the holiday season soon approaching, it goes without saying that you will want your home to look its best. With incoming guests to entertain, including your family and friends, it will be particularly important to make sure your living room is holiday-ready. Right before Thanksgiving is the perfect time to freshen up your living room décor, so take the early months of November to make some home furnishing upgrades. Don’t have the funds to purchase a completely new living room furniture set? Not a problem! You can transform your living room with just a few carefully-selected home accents. Learn more about the three home accents that are guaranteed to take your living room décor to the next level this holiday season.

Add Warmth to Your Living Room with Area Rugs

Area rugs are a fantastic way to change the atmosphere in a room. What’s great about an area rug is that it is exceptionally affordable and quite portable, so if you want to use different area rugs throughout the year, it’s easy to change them as you see fit. For the holiday season, opt for an area rug that features a dark and rich color palette. Think warm and wintry colors like brown, burgundy, and forest green. Adding these warm earth tones to your living room will help create a cozy and welcoming atmosphere for all your guests.

Brighten Your Space with Decorative Lamps & Lighting

Before your living room is filled with family and friends, make sure it has enough lighting to encourage friendly conversation. While you don’t want to make your living room overly bright, you will want to make sure that there is proper lighting in key conversation spots around the sofa. If your living room is looking a little dim, place a few end tables or sofa tables topped with table lamps throughout the room. We have dozens of beautiful table lamps, in both contemporary and traditional styles, that will help to keep things illuminated.  

Liven Up Your Living Room Walls with Artwork

One of the best ways to make your living room livelier and more engaging is by adorning the walls with intriguing wall art. Your wall art doesn’t necessarily need to be holiday-related, but it should be vibrant and distinctive, and something that will get your guests talking.  Whether you enjoy delicate watercolors, acrylic landscapes, or dramatic photography—we have a variety of options that are sure to enhance your living room décor.

If you are ready to give your living room a holiday upgrade, come to Furniture Liquidators and see all the fashionable and affordable furniture selection we have to offer. You can shop with us in Bardstown, KY or at any one of our 13 furniture showrooms throughout the Kentuckiana area.

Key Pieces for a Cozy Guest Bedroom

Do you love to entertain often? Are overnight guests a common occurrence in your home? If so, then it is important that you provide your guests with a cozy space that will make your house feel like their home away from home. Creating a guest bedroom is not just about offering your guests a place to sleep, it is also about enhancing the comfort of their stay. Learn more about the key components needed to create a guest bedroom that will wow your home visitors each and every time.

A Space-Saving Storage Bed

It goes without saying that the most important piece of furniture in any guest bedroom is the bed. You will want to supply your visitors with a bed that is spacious, sturdy, and comfortable. While our home furniture store has a wide variety of fashionable beds for sale, we recommend that you select a space-saving storage bed. Storage beds are perfect for guest bedrooms because they include roomy drawers that provide more than enough space for guests to store their clothing and belongings for a number of days. A storage bed will be beneficial for both you and your guests because it will eliminate the need for a dresser or a chest of drawers.

A Compact Nightstand

When people travel, they typically don’t just pack clothing and towels—they usually come with toiletries and other small necessities as well. To help your guests organize all their small items, purchase a nightstand or a bedside table. Nightstands are small, inexpensive, and they provide compact storage space as well as tabletop space perfect for placing a lamp or an alarm clock. At Furniture Liquidators, we have dozens of fashionable nightstands to choose from, many of which are less than $150!

A Comfy Accent Chair

If you occasionally entertain long-term guests, then you may want to consider purchasing a few pieces of accent furniture. Accent chairs in particular make a great addition to any guest room because they will make the space warmer and more inviting. With an accent chair, your guest bedroom will be more than just a place to sleep; it will also be a place where your guests can rest, catch up on emails, or curl up with a good book before bed.

With these three key furniture pieces, you will be able to build a beautiful guest bedroom in no time. Come to Furniture Liquidators today to find all these furniture selections, plus so much more! You can shop with us in Elizabethtown, KY or at any one of our 13 Kentuckiana furniture showrooms.

Choosing the Perfect Kids Bed

When choosing a bed for your child’s bedroom, it’s sometimes hard to know where to start. When purchasing a bed for an adult, the main concerns are generally style and durability; however, when it comes to kids beds, there are few additional points to consider. At Furniture Liquidators, we’re here to help. Next time you’re in need of a new kids bed, keep these three tips in mind to simplify the shopping process. With these simple tips and our extensive selection of kids bedroom furniture, you will be able to find the perfect kids bed in no time!

Choose the Right Size

When building a kids bedroom, many people automatically think to purchase a Twin size bed and mattress. While a Twin bed is a perfect fit for a young child, if your child’s age is in the double digits or they will soon be approaching their teens, it may be time to switch to a Full bed. While a Twin bed has dimensions of 38” x 74,” a Full bed has dimensions of 53” x 74,” which is a significant step up in terms of space and comfort. Once you make the switch to a Full bed, your child will be set for the years and growth spurts that lie ahead.

Think About Your Child’s Interests

When choosing a bed for your child’s bedroom, consider their likes and interests. For example, if your child loves fairytales, they will love one of our formal poster beds which feature delicate colors and stylish design accents fit for a princess. If your child is an avid reader, then you may want to consider purchasing one of our bookcase storage beds, which will enable them to keep their favorite books close at hand. If you choose a bed that reflects your child’s interests, your child will get excited about their bedroom décor—and who knows, you might even be able to convince them to make their bed!

Consider a Bunk Bed or Trundle Bed

Just because you have two children sharing one room, that doesn’t mean their bedroom is destined to be cramped and cluttered. If you have limited space to spare, pass on buying two separate beds, and instead consider purchasing one of our bunk beds or trundle beds. Both options will help you save space while also providing your children with the individual room that they need.

When you’re ready to purchase a new kids bed, stop by Furniture Liquidators, where you will find an abundance of options that your child is sure to love. You can visit us in Louisville, KY or at any one of our 13 Kentuckiana locations.

Helpful Mattress Maintenance Tips

Sleep is important to your health and your overall well-being, and in order to get a good night’s sleep you need to have a comfortable and supportive mattress. When you invest in a quality mattress, it can last as long as 8-10 years, assuming you treat it with care. Here are a couple of helpful tips to ensure that your mattress remains in tip-top shape for years to come.

Air Out Your Mattress Regularly

Humidity can attract dust mites and allergens, so it’s a good idea to air out your mattress on a regular basis. When you air out your mattress, you should remove all bedding and allow your mattress to breathe. If possible, open up your windows and expose your mattress to sunlight, which will help rid your mattress of moisture and bacteria. Airing out your mattress on a weekly basis will prevent allergen buildup and help keep your mattress dry and fresh.

Rotate Your Mattress

Rotating your mattress a few times a year can significantly lengthen its lifespan. When you rotate your mattress, it will evenly distribute the pressure your body places on it, which will help to prevent sagging and body indentations. Mattress rotation can be done to both innerspring and memory foam mattress, and you should aim to do it at least once every three months.

No Roughhousing

As fun as it may be, jumping on a mattress can cause considerable damage. Putting an extreme amount of pressure on a mattress can cause it to become misshapen and it may even cause permanent damage to the interior mattress springs. Roughhousing can even ruin your box spring or mattress base! Just remember, mattresses were made for sleeping, so it’s best to keep it that way.

When it comes time to purchase a new mattress, come to Furniture Liquidators, where you will find an extensive selection of high quality mattresses from brand names you can trust. You can visit us in Fairdale, KY or at any one of our 13 locations. If you care for your mattress using these three simple tips, you can protect your investment and enjoy the benefits of your mattress far into the future.

Shopping for a Reclining Sofa

When it comes to living room furnishings, there is nothing more luxurious than a reclining sofa. Soft, spacious, and comfortable—a reclining sofa will undoubtedly make your living room more welcoming and inviting for your visitors and guests. If you’re looking to update your living room with this versatile furniture piece, follow these three tips to ensure you end up with the best sofa that meets your needs.

Give Your Sofa a Test Drive

Not all reclining sofas are the same. Besides differences in material and style, there can also be significant differences in terms of comfort level and degree of recline. There is no better way to discover what sofa is right for you than to try it out yourself, firsthand. If you stop by our Louisville, KY furniture showroom, you will have the freedom to try out any of our reclining sofas and test their capabilities. We give you a chance to sit back, relax, and find the sofa that is right for you.

Consider Your Space and Sofa Placement

When assessing the space where you plan to place your reclining sofa, take into consideration the amount of room your sofa will take both in the stationary and reclining position. Some sofas take up a substantial amount of space when reclining back so placing it in a tight space could seriously limit your reclining capabilities. That said, it should come as no surprise that placing a reclining sofa up against a wall is an absolute no-no.

Think About Sofa Color and Design

When you’ve taken all the time and effort to find a comfortable sofa that fits in your living space, it’s important that you don’t forget to consider style. It doesn’t matter how lovely your new sofa may be, if it isn’t coordinated with the rest of your living room furniture, it will ruin your entire room’s décor. Consider the color scheme and furniture style already established in your living room before settling on your final purchase.
