Winter-Proof Your Wicker Furniture

Posted on

Now that the snow has started falling, there’s no denying that winter is here to stay. It’s time to make sure your favourite belongings are protected from the elements. You already know to get snow tires and stock up on sidewalk salt, but have you given any thought to your patio furniture? Wicker patio furniture can be badly damaged by a snowy winter like the one meteorologists predict this year. Before the snow begins drifting, take action to protect your outdoor investment.

Consider rearranging your home to make room for your wicker. Today’s styles are stylish enough that they won’t look out of place inside.

The best way to protect wicker is to keep it out of the snow entirely. Natural wicker is made from organic fibers like bamboo or rattan. These are lightweight materials that make for chic furniture, but the combination of moisture and cold can cause it to mildew or crack. Consider rearranging your home to make room for your wicker. Today’s styles are stylish enough that they won’t look out of place inside. An attic or garage is also good storage options, though you should be careful not to stack wicker chairs on top of each other for more than a few days. The weight of the top chair will bend those below it out of shape over time.

If bringing your wicker pieces inside isn’t an option, there are ways to protect it outdoors. First- and you should do this even if you’re bringing it inside- give your furniture a thorough cleaning. This includes the cushions. Some have removable covers which can be thrown in the laundry. For those that don’t, vacuum the surface and remove any stains with good old soap and water. Wipe down the wicker itself with very mild detergent, getting into the crevices to remove all the dirt. Let it dry completely. Check the forecast for this part. When it’s expected to be wet all week you might need to find room in the garage overnight.

Once your furniture is clean and dry, you have two options. You can coat the wicker with a paste wax or lemon oil. For wicker furniture that’s already coated with resin, go with lemon oil. It gives your furniture a fresh scent and helps deter bugs. Use a soft cloth to apply whichever you choose; a brush might scratch the surface. If your furniture has any wood trim you need to paint it with wood sealant to prevent warping.

The next step is to cover your furniture to keep it from coming in direct contact with snow. Choose waterproof covers that go entirely over everything wicker. Otherwise, you risk having warped chair legs in the spring. Use bungee cords to secure the furniture to a patio railing in case it gets windy outside. Wicker is light enough to slide around in a good windstorm. Even if it doesn’t break something else, that sliding could damage the wicker itself.

Depending on how much furniture you have, this can all be done in an afternoon. You won’t regret the time spent when you have beautiful wicker furniture next spring!

Keeping Your Wooden Furniture Looking Like New

Posted on

Make no mistake: great furniture is an investment. You want to take care of it and get the most out of it for as long as you can, but how exactly do you do this? We’ve discussed taking care of your furniture’s upholstery, but what about your primarily wooden furniture, such as dining room chairs and tables, coffee tables, and the like?

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Below are a few of our best tips for caring for your wooden furniture and prolonging the life of your newest pieces. Still have some questions? Stop by our showroom today, and let us provide you with the answers (and while you’re at it, browse our amazing inventory!).

Caring for your wooden furniture isn’t too much different from caring from your furniture with beautiful upholstery.

Clean regularly

Caring for your wooden furniture isn’t too much different from caring from your furniture with beautiful upholstery. Prolonging the life of your wooden furniture involves cleaning it intensely and regularly. Simply wipe the dirt off your furniture’s surface using warm water, followed by drying it with another soft cloth. Afterward, consider applying a small layer of soft paste wax, then slightly buff with a cloth. Wait an hour, and buff with your cloth once again. Not only will this method appropriately clean your wooden furniture, but it will ensure that it shines and stays protected for months to come.

Be sure to dust regularly, too

Notice a little bit of dust on your wooden furniture, but don’t want to go through the process above? Dust it! Dusting your wooden furniture is essential to prolonging its life – in fact, if you can fit it into your schedule, you should seriously consider dusting your furniture daily. You’d be surprised how much dust finds its way to your wooden furniture, and by dusting regularly, you will actually breathe easier (and thus, feel better).

Avoid the elements

That new wooden chair may look beautiful next to the window, but unless you plan to keep the shades of your window closed during the day, you should probably place it elsewhere. The elements of the weather (i.e. sunlight) and the heat from your heating unit can severely damage your wooden furniture, causing it to fade, dry, then shrink and crack. Protect your investment by placing your furniture in a cool, shaded area, and ensure it stays at its best for years to come.

Bonus tip: Consider slipcovers

While we’re not going to have to worry about summer for months, it’s never too early to plan ahead – especially when your wooden furniture is at risk. In the event that we’re facing a very hot summer, consider purchasing slipcovers and placing them over your wooden furniture. This will protect your furniture from the sweat of family members and guests and other things related to summer that could be harmful to your furniture (such as sunscreen oil). If you are serious about protecting your wooden furniture, place slipcovers over them the moment you discover that warm weather is here to stay until the fall.

Think Office Furniture Feels ‘Stuffy’ By Design? Think Again.

Posted on

Let’s do a quick thought experiment for just a moment. Imagine yourself sitting inside a lobby, hearing your name called, and walking inside a professional’s office. What did you see? Chances are, you probably noticed a few generic chairs (and maybe even a small sofa) in the lobby and perhaps even a small table in the middle of the lobby with magazines scattered around. Inside the office, you probably imagined two leather chairs for guests, a large leather chair for the professional, and a large desk that’s the colour of coffee.

While the exact details on your thought experiment may be different than the one above, it’s probably not by much. Office furniture has had a certain look for decades, and most of us have been exposed to the same types of furniture as long as we can remember. Yet, the rules of office furniture are changing. Gone are the days of office furniture being, ‘stuffy,’ or, ‘99% leather.’ Today, there’s a lot of flexibility when it comes to your company’s décor. Keep reading to find out what we mean.

Less ‘office lobby,’ more ‘coffee shop’

Think less 'office', more 'coffee shop'.

The problem with most office lobbies is that they feel like one. There’s nothing comfortable or pleasing about an office lobby, so ditch the idea and rethink what a lobby can feel like. Emphasize comfortability and decorate your lobby in a way that will make everyone that enters your office building instantly feel welcome. For example, consider scattering side and end tables in the lobby to give your lobby more of a coffee shop vibe. Be sure to add plenty of seating (e.g. sofas, love seats, ottomans, etc.) so visitors can have plenty of options to sit where they feel most comfortable.

Add colour and lighting

When possible, add extra colour and lighting when adding new furniture.

When possible, add extra colour and lighting when adding new furniture. Instead of opting for typical black and brown colours, add unique shades such as cyan, navy blue, and even shades of yellow. There’s nothing wrong with adding brighter colours to your furniture, just be sure to ensure the colour of the furniture doesn’t overpower the colours of your walls, floors, and the like.

Furthermore, brighten up your office building by adding additional lighting when possible. Allow natural sunlight to enter into your building while strategically adding lamps to improve the flow of light throughout. With brighter, fun colours (that still look professional) complete with additional lighting to show off those amazing colours, visitors are going to feel completely comfortable when visiting your premises.

Your desk and chair shouldn’t be the focal point of your office

Consider replacing your current desk with a glass desk and a smaller chair that doesn’t look so intimidating upon first inspection.

Rather, it should be you! Consider replacing your current desk with a glass desk and a smaller chair that doesn’t look so intimidating upon first inspection. The trick is to take the focal point off of your office furniture and place it on you. This will allow visitors to feel at ease when speaking with you, comfortable in their environment, and much more willing to communicate with you effectively.

Comfort above all

Allow the furniture to showcase your company’s ideologies and when decorating your own office, ensure your furniture reflects your own personality.

Look, the rules of office furniture are much more lax than they were just a decade ago. As the classic Bob Dylan song says, “the times, they are a’ changin’,” and that includes what’s deemed ‘acceptable’ when it comes to choosing office furniture. Don’t be afraid to be bold, to implement office furniture that’s unique and out of the ordinary. Allow the furniture to showcase your company’s ideologies (and when decorating your own office, ensure your furniture reflects your own personality) to ensure that your guests, clients, and current/potential customers feel at ease when visiting the premises.

Above all though, ensure that the furniture is actually comfortable. The days of placing a certain look over the comfort of you and your employees is long gone. Besides, it’s simple to find furniture that has the perfect vibe while still being comfortable, so there’s no point in choosing one over the other. Stop by our showroom today, and learn how we can provide you with the absolute best office furniture that looks great and feels even better!

Decorating A Small Room With The Proper Décor

Posted on

Just because a room seems too small to decorate doesn’t make it so. Sure, decorating a small room can be more challenging since you don’t have as much room to work with, but by knowing how to decorate strategically and properly, you are going to find that decorating a small space is not only possible, but can also make you think differently about how you use your space. It’s going to force you to get the most out of your home’s space, so follow a few of our tips below and allow Guaranteed A Fine Furniture help you to properly decorate your small space!

Mirrors and lighting are a must 

When you have a small space, the best way to make it look larger is to use mirrors and lighting.

We’ve mentioned this tip plenty of times, but it’s worth repeating: when you have a small space, the best way to make it look larger is to use mirrors and lighting. Place mirrors across from windows so the light will reflect and make the room look bigger, while strategically placing lamps in the area where you will typically be sitting. For example, if you are trying to make a living room look larger, place a few lamps in the area where you and your guests will typically be sitting, while also placing a lamp around your mirrors. The more lighting, the larger your room will appear! 

Furniture with built-in storage 

Whether you need a method for storing extra pillows and blankets in a family room or you want to store out-of-season clothing in a bedroom, you need to consider implementing furniture with built-in storage.

One of the biggest hurdles of any small room is overcoming the challenges of storage. Whether you need a method for storing extra pillows and blankets in a family room or you want to store out-of-season clothing in a bedroom, you need to consider implementing furniture with built-in storage. Some specialized types of furniture includes built-in storage – such as coffee tables, sofas, and even bedding. If you don’t want to search for furniture that is designed primarily for small spaces, consider implementing a storage ottoman into your space that also doubles as a way to display your art and other decorations. Although space is certainly limited, an ottoman can go a long way in minimizing clutter and ensuring you have a way to store everything. 

Rug in the center of the room 

Not only can a rug make a room look bigger, but it can also ensure that it looks more stunning than ever.

Not only can a rug make a room look bigger, but it can also ensure that it looks more stunning than ever. Simply place a rug roughly 2/3 of the way under the furniture sitting at the center of the room. From there, ensure that it ‘sticks out’ slightly. This will ensure that your room looks larger, but be sure to pick a properly-sized rug! As a guide, the length and the width of the rug should never stick out more than a meter. A rug that’s too large can end up being an eyesore rather than a method for making your room appearing larger. 

Artwork, eye-level and upward 

Displaying artwork at eye level will make your spaces look larger than they actually are.

While you may be tempted to save room and place your photos and other décor on shelves and other surfaces that are below eye-level, don’t do this. Instead, ensure that every type of décor – especially artwork – isn’t displayed any lower than eye-level. This will make your spaces look larger than they actually are, while ensuring that all of your guests are actually able to view your décor. If you want your pictures and other décor to be on display in a manner where they can’t be missed, you will want to use this tip!

Whether you have any questions, concerns, or are ready to find the best furniture and amenities to make your small spaces appear larger, do not wait. Stop by our showroom today and let us provide the best solutions for your small space-woes. We’re here to help, and we guarantee that your small space will be decorated to its full potential in no time!

Posted on

Have you noticed that your bedroom is looking a bit outdated? If you have been aiming to give it an updated look but have no idea which modern trends will ensure your bedroom is in-style for the foreseeable future, this week’s post is just for you.

Not just a bedroom 

Implementing a simple entertainment center to house your television to decorate your bedroom.

Bedrooms are not just ‘bedrooms’ any longer – in fact, they have more in common with a hotel suite than a traditional, residential bedroom. It’s a room where we can relax completely in private, winding down the day until we sleep for the evening. Consider implementing a simple entertainment center to house your television and other home entertainment devices you want to enjoy in the bedroom (e.g. DVD/Blu-ray players, video game consoles, etc.) It’s also a great way to decorate your bedroom with  pictures and other decorative items! 

Multi-purpose furniture 

Multi-functional furniture with a minimalist touch is one of the hottest furniture trends of the moment.

Multi-functional furniture with a minimalist touch is one of the hottest furniture trends of the moment –  especially when it comes to the bedroom. We’re talking beds with pull-out storage space underneath, curio cabinets to house various knick-knacks you want on display in the bedroom, and more. Multi-purpose furniture in the bedroom also saves space, giving you the freedom to decorate your bedroom exactly the way you wish! 

White simplicity 

The safest way to update a bedroom is to implement white colours strategically.

For many, the safest way to update a bedroom (or any room for that matter) is to implement white colours strategically. It also helps that it’s a trend that has been in-style for seemingly forever, so if you want to choose a trend that is essentially future-proof, adding elegant touches of white into the bedroom could be perfect for your bedroom. Consider making your walls and ceilings white (or keeping them white if they already are) while adding a darker area rug, colourful wall décor, and the like. The white of the wall and ceiling perfectly compliment the unique colours of the room, bringing them altogether to create a spectacular look you will absolutely fall in love with. 

Round bedding 

Be trendy while space-saving with a round bed.

Some of the most exciting trends of the 1970’s are back, so why not give your bedroom a little taste of the disco decade by adding a round bed into your bedroom? While it’s certainly unique, round bedding is also ideal if you want to save as much space as possible in the bedroom. Be trendy while space-saving with a round bed – perfect for the person that wants to bring their bedroom into modern age while being a bit daring!

 

 

Why The Embellishments On Your Furniture Are Important

Posted on

When it comes to purchasing new furniture, one of the things you’re probably not thinking about are the embellishments. It seems like a secondary matter, but in reality it’s actually vitally important to not only how the furniture looks, but how it’s perceived by others. The right embellishment can make the difference between your furniture looking ordinary and jaw-dropping – truly, embellishments are nothing to take lightly.

Want to see the power of embellishments for yourself? Stop by our showroom today! Ask questions, learn more about embellishments, and discover why they are essential to your furniture. Below are even more reasons why they are so important.

Embellishments can truly take ordinary furniture and make it look, ‘one of a kind.’

Create personality 

We all want our furniture to have personality, yet not all furniture has personality. Avoid the boring, tired furniture and instead opt for something with a little more ‘sizzle.’ From a leather sofa strategically decorated with golden buttons around the trim to an armoire with a unique design that makes it more than just ‘an armoire,’ it’s the best way to truly give your furniture the personality to make your spaces even brighter.

A different look 

When it’s time to purchase new furniture, most of us probably think the same thing: we want something different. What if you want the same ‘type’ of furniture, yet you want there to be enough difference between the two pieces that it doesn’t feel like you have just a newer version of the same piece? That’s where embellishments come into play. You will be amazed how much difference a few simple embellishments can have on a piece of furniture – in fact, the right embellishments can totally change the tone of a piece of furniture. There’s power in them, so don’t think they don’t matter! 

Conversation starter 

Embellishments can truly take ordinary furniture and make it look, ‘one of a kind.’ Thus, whenever you have family members over to your home to visit or friends, neighbors, etc., prepare yourself for at least one conversation about the embellished furniture. It’s a solid conversation starter, and a great way to differentiate your home from your loved ones, your neighborhood, and so on.

Prolongs the beauty of your furniture 

It’s amazing how a few, seemingly unimportant additions to a piece of furniture can have such a positive impact, but it does. As your furniture ages and the years pass, it’s still going to look immaculate thanks to the strategically-placed embellishments that allow the furniture to continue looking stunning for the foreseeable future. Embellishments are a small addition to any furniture piece, yet they make a huge difference in a variety of different ways. The next time you buy a piece of furniture, ensure it features embellishments so it looks at its absolute best!

Adding A Touch Of Fall To Your Home’s Spaces

Posted on

Officially, we can now say, “goodbye,” to Summer and yet another, “hello,” to arguably the most beautiful season of the year: Fall (you may refer to it as Autumn). As the leaves transform from bright greens to stunning shades of orange, yellow, and beyond, so too is it time for your home’s spaces to transition from that bright, poppy look of Summer to the neutral, seasonal look of Fall. You may be confused on the best methods for accomplishing this, and that’s why here at Guaranteed A Fine Furniture, we’re happy to help. Below are a few of the best methods for adding a clever touch of Fall to your home this season. Implement them into your home’s spaces, and capture that peaceful, comforting feeling of Fall we all know and love!

Fall decor uses neutral, natural tones to provide a warm feeling.

Switch your Summer décor for muted, seasonal tones 

The best place to begin when decorating your home with Fall flair is to simply place your Summer décor into storage. Period. The reason is because Summer and Fall décor is completely different: one style utilizes bright, exciting colours while the other uses neutral, natural tones to provide a warm feeling. That’s another difference, too: one style attempts to make your home’s spaces feel cooler while the other is trying to keep them warmer.

As you can see, it’s important to understand why we decorate the way we do when it comes to Summer and Fall. Keep in mind what each décor style is trying to accomplish to ultimately understand why you will be decorating the way you will. From there, it’s time to… 

Accessorize your spaces 

Ah accessorizing: it’s the quickest-yet-effective method for transitioning your home from having a Summer flair and replacing it with a Fall look. We recommend replacing your sofa pillows to reflect the season – yellow, orange, browns, and reds are all fair game. Additionally, consider adding an earth-toned throw rug to a walkway(s) in your home. As a rule of thumb, if the colour of the accessory looks as if it was taken directly out of nature during the Fall months, you can use it.

Layer your bedding 

Nothing says Fall quite like extra layers of sheets and comforters. You probably have extra sets of each for your guests, so take them out of storage and add them to your bedding (the more neutral they are, the better). You can even add a seasonal throw to your bed, such as a plaid throw (which looks great on your sofas as well). Speaking of throws, if you have a quilt that you want to show off to your guests, the Fall is the perfect season to do this – from decorating it on your sofa to laying it on the end of your bed to add the final Fall touch to your bedding, quilts are perfect for adding that cozy feeling that the seasons gives us all.

Sit Fall foliage atop your furniture 

One of the most unique hallmarks of the Fall is its foliage. From leaves that encompass beautiful Fall colours to pumpkins, twigs, berries, and beyond, the more bits of Fall nature that you can implement into your home, the better. Place these items on top of your furniture and other surfaces (e.g. bookshelves, armoires, fireplace mantles etc.) to make your home cozy and comfortable with a Fall touch.

How To Make Small Spaces Appear Larger

Posted on

Whether by choice or circumstance, there is currently a wave of people – young and old alike – that are moving into smaller spaces. Some are taking the lifestyle to the extreme (e.g. the Tiny House movement) while others are discovering the beauty of live functionally in smaller spaces rather than in a home with large, open spaces. Whether you are currently living in a small space by choice or because fate has forced your hand, it’s essential that you know how to make your small spaces appear as large as possible (an important step in learning have to maximize and utilize your small spaces). Below are a few simple tricks that you can begin implementing into your home as soon as possible thanks to us at Guaranteed A Fine Furniture – use them, and you will be amazed by how much larger your home will appear to be! 

Mirrors

 modern clock with mirror

One of the best ways to make any room appear larger is by adding a mirror to the room – and if you can, consider adding a giant mirror on the wall! With the restoration hardware look all the rage these days, adding a large, bronze or copper mirror to your spaces could be one of the most stylish choices you make for your home. Hang it in an area of the home where you will be spending the most time with guests (such as the living room or family room) where there is little lighting, and layer it with…

 More lighting

 Add a tall lamp around your hanging mirror.

Add a tall lamp (or multiple if a space seriously lacks lighting) around your hanging mirror, which will reflect light and make the room appear even larger than it actually is. Moreover, this is the perfect tip if you are dealing with a cramped entryway, as extra lighting can keep the room light, bright, and most importantly, looking larger. Place a lamp to a side table sitting in the entryway, and add an extra layer of light to the space!

Integrate raised furniture

 By adding raised furniture to a room, you will create an illusion that you actually have more open space than you actually do.

Here is yet another optical illusion for making your spaces appear larger! By adding raised furniture to a room, you will create an illusion that you actually have more open space than you actually do. Typically, ordinary furniture is so low to the ground that you can’t view the flooring it is standing upon (which makes your home’s space look more cramped than it actually is). By ensuring nothing is blocking your flooring, your home’s space will look much larger than before. If you’re in the market for new furniture, this is the perfect time to start implementing this style of furniture into your home! Stop by our showroom, and let us introduce you to the best raised furniture for your home’s spaces!

Larger, decorative pieces

 Implement a few large, decorative items to a smaller space.

As you attempt to make your home’s spaces appear larger, one of your first instincts may be to opt for small, decorative items rather than larger ones: go against those instincts and implement a few large, decorative items instead. Sabrina Soto – Target’s home style expert – gives this bit of advice: “decorative accents smaller than a cantaloupe crowd a room;” perfect advice if you are trying to decorate in a small space.

For even more tips, speak to us directly and discover even more methods for making your home’s spaces appear larger. In no time, your spaces are going feel cozy, comfortable, and most importantly? You’re going to feel at home!

Which Furniture Pieces Should You Add To A Wedding Registry?

Posted on

Should you add furniture to your wedding registry? Here at Guaranteed A Fine Furniture, we don’t see anything wrong with it! Your wedding day is all about you, and the celebration of the life ahead of both you and your significant other. Besides, you’re actually making it easier on some of your family members and loved ones alike, as listing furniture pieces gives them the option of pooling money together to buy the pieces you need.

Yet, starting a new life with your significant other can be daunting. You probably don’t have a good idea regarding what type of furniture you are going to need as you both transition from the life of a bachelor/bachelorette to that of a married couple. At Guaranteed A Fine Furniture, we’re here to help! Below are a few of the best furniture pieces that will prove to be invaluable as you transition into married life. 

Curio cabinet

A curio cabinet is perfect furniture piece for storing little knick-knacks.

If you or your significant other loves decorations, then you are going to want to consider adding a curio cabinet to your wedding registry. A curio cabinet is great because it achieves a few things: for starters, they’re the perfect furniture piece for storing little knick-knacks that are special to the both of you, and so on (e.g. pictures, decorative plates, etc.). Moreover, they’re a great way to store delicate China dishware that either of you have inherited from a family member, and best of all? They look great in any room of the home. Stop by our showroom today, and take a look at some of the amazing curio cabinets you can add to your wedding registry! 

Bedding

Upgrade your bedding arrangement when you get married.

As you transition from the life of a bachelor/bachelorette to the life of a married couple, you are going to find that you are going to have to ‘upgrade’ certain furniture pieces – most notably, your bedding arrangements. We don’t have to tell you that keeping your twin size bed isn’t exactly the best idea, so upgrading it to at least a Queen is a must. Even if you already have a Queen-size bed (and your significant other doesn’t mind implementing it into your bedroom), there are other things in the bedroom that are going to need to be added. From a bigger dresser to a mirror (or a dresser/mirror combo) to even a home office desk that will allow you or your significant other to work in a comfortable setting, your bedroom is going to be one of the spaces of your home that demands the biggest upgrades. 

Sofa 

A new sofa is a must when you get married.

Sure, you may have fond memories of that ratty, worn sofa that has followed you throughout college and beyond, but it’s time to think about a replacement couch. Think about the amount of visitors you will typically have now that you’ll have your significant other living with you, and of course, think about his/her needs as well. Think about the type of styles both of you prefer, and come to a resolution regarding what type of sofa you will put on your wedding registry.

Furthermore, consider the amount of extra seating you will need in the living/family room. Do you have a loveseat or chairs that need to be replaced/purchased for the first time? Put it on the wedding registry! Wedding registries are all about preparing for the future, and it’s hard to find a way to prepare for future guests than by adding extra, beautiful seating to your home!

Anything you want to upgrade 

Sit down with your significant other and discuss the furniture you will be adding to your home. From there, talk about the furniture you will want to replace or upgrade. Chances are, the two of you probably have a few furniture pieces that need to be retired and replaced with a better version that suits a married couple. From an entertainment center to a bigger coffee table and especially dining room seating, take an afternoon to assess your furniture and make a list of what needs to be upgraded and replaced, and what can stay in your new home. The sooner you do this, the more likely your loved ones can help out!

Once you make a list of furniture pieces you want on your wedding registry, stop by Guaranteed A Fine Furniture and allow us to not only find the perfect pieces for your new home, but also to help you set up the wedding registry as well. We’ve helped so many couples find their dream furniture via our wedding registries, and we guarantee that we will do the same for you!
