Taking Apart Your Recliner Chair

Moving furniture can be a real hassle. Between the Ashley sofas and bookshelves, it is almost enough to make someone vow to never move again. While this is not true for the sofa sets you own, you can take apart your recliner chair. Breaking the chair down into smaller pieces will eliminate at least one headache. Despite the fact this process sounds complicated, it is actually quite simple, and this step-by-step guide will take you from start to finish without a single tear shed.

Taking Apart Your Recliner Chair:

  1. While standing behind the recliner, reach into the gap between the backrest and the sides of the chair. Pull down on the metal levers inside the gap to release the backrest from the recliner’s frame.
  2. Lay the recliner on its side so that you can access the bottom of the seat.
  3. Find the pins that connect the seat to the chair’s arms, remove the screws from the pins and then slide the pins out to release the front.
  4. Lift the seat of the chair until you can reach the screws that attach the seats to the  sides of the recliner. Remove the screws and lift the seat out of the chair.
  5. Use a wrench to loosen the bolts that secure the arms of the chair. Remove these bolts and pull away the arms.

This will leave you will a few parts that can easily be boxed for shipping or transport.

Making a Room Look Larger

 

Small rooms can be a complete downer. They can make you feel cramped and confined. It’s not something you want to feel in your own home or apartment. Luckily, even if you do have a smaller room somewhere in your living quarters, there are some tricks to making it seem a little bigger than it really is.

First of all, make sure your room is painted a light, neutral color. Darker colors make rooms feel smaller. Always remember to leave the ceiling white. This makes it seem a little higher.

Secondly, make sure when you buy new furniture like a sofa set or some other unique furniture it is able to fit in the room. However, it sometimes helps a room look bigger if you have only a few pieces but make them slightly oversize for the room.

Some of the biggest tricks are for windows and mirrors. Make the curtains go floor to ceiling instead of just covering the windows. This will make them appear bigger than they are and the room, by association, will look larger. Mirrors make every room look bigger. The reflected image helps to increase the appearance of floorspace. To add to this effect try putting lights near the mirror to reflect the light. You’ll be surprised how large your room can feel!

Dinette Sets for Outdoor Seating

Summertime is here with a bang. It’s warm, sunny, and feels wonderful to be outside. ‘Tis the season for BBQs and other outdoor entertainment. It’s important that you have the proper dinette furniture to go along with the season. Choosing a dinette set for the patio is easier than you might think.

First, consider the size of your space. It’s important that everyone is comfortable when sitting around the table. You don’t want people to have to squeeze around when they need to get up for more food or to play their turn in boccee ball. Be sure the table and chairs you get are big enough for the amount of people that you want to entertain but not so big that it swallows your backyard or patio.

Second, be sure you choose a set that is meant to be outdoors. Check with the sales person or manufacturer to see if there is any chance of rusting or sun damage to the table and chairs. You may also want to ask about covers, umbrellas, and other accessories at this time. If the set can’t be left in the rain and you don’t have a covered porch or patio, you may want to reconsider your choice.

Myths and Facts about Leather Furniture

Are you planning on purchasing a new sofa set? Has your husband had his eye on a leather recliner chair? Are you hesitant to get the leather furniture because you’ve heard lots of bad things about it? Well, fear not. Classy Home is here to assuage your fears and give you the facts about leather furniture.

Many people think that leather furniture doesn’t last a long time. Where this rumor came from I have no idea but it decidedly untrue. A lot of leather furniture is well made and since leather is a natural material it ages well. It gets a natural sort of patina that just makes the furniture more beautiful.

You might have also heard that leather is too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. While this is true upon first contact it’s not entirely accurate. In the winter, leather absorbs body heat quickly and warms up. In the summer, leather, again being a natural material, breathes and won’t heat up so much that it burns. You need to keep it out of direct sunlight. It’s also a very absorbent material. It is very comfortable in the summer because it soaks in perspiration which makes it the best seat in the house on a hot day.

Cleaning Outdoor Dinette Sets

It’s time! Get out the patio furniture and the grill and start cooking those burgers and hot dogs! It’s the perfect time of year to spend outside in the sunshine! You’ll have to pull your outdoor dinette set out of the attic or basement and most likely it is going to be a little bit dingy from sitting and hibernating all winter long. Don’t worry though, you’ll find that it’s easy to clean off the dinette set and get it ready for those summer barbecues!

For the metal and plastic chairs and tables you’re just going to want to wipe down the surfaces with a damp cloth. You can go ahead and add a cleaning agent to the water you’re using or use a spray cleaner like those from clorox and fantastick.

The cushions on your dinette set might be a little harder to clean. You’ll want to either zip off the covers (if that’s possible) and throw them in the washing machine or you can just throw the whole cushion in. Here’s a tip, don’t put them in the dryer! You’ll warp the foam or stuffing inside if you put it in the dryer and they won’t be as comfortable. You can also take it to a laundry service to save you the stress of ruining the cushions for your patio set.

Protect Furniture from the Sun

 

When you go outside in the summer it’s a good idea to wear sunscreen. No one thinks anything of it or that it’s weird to put on sunscreen. We do it because we don’t want to turn into lobsters, get skin cancer, or be uncomfortable when we move around. It’s equally not weird to be worried about the sun’s effect on our furniture like sofa sets and entertainment centers.

A good way to avoid this is to make sure that all of your furniture is not sitting in direct sunlight. If you have a window that gets direct sun for a majority of the day, setting a sofa there will ensure that it turns a different color. Move it to a shadier place where you can enjoy it for years to come.When the sun is directly hitting one spot on the carpet for a long period of time, the carpet will turn different colors. It usually will bleach out to a lighter shade of the original carpet color but sometimes can turn white or a gross yellow color. The same thing can happen with your furniture. While it’s mostly noticeable on your cloth and fabric furniture like sofas, chairs, and ottomans it’s affects can be seen on wooden furniture too.

Pet Friendly Furniture


 

Many people want to strike a balance between having a comfortable,
elegant home and one friendly for pets. The fact of the matter is you
can protect your furniture without having to buy thousands of pet hair
rollers.

Leather sofa sets are a good choice for dogs and cats. Many animals
don’t like the feel of leather and will avoid leather furniture. Even
if they do climb on the furniture, their fur can easily be removed.
With cats, just make sure they have a scratching post or else that
recliner leather chair is going to look like a tantalizing option for
claw care!

Another option is to buy a sofa set and section off one part for the pet.
Place their bed there and let them know it is their space and that
they are not allowed elsewhere on the couch. Most animals will accept
these terms and the rest of your couch will be fur-free.

If you want your pets off the couch entirely, you can accomplish that
with some training. I would suggest placing a crate or bed for your
animal in the living room. That way when the family gathers they feel
like they have a place and are a part of things.

Period Furniture: A 17th Century Introduction

People, over the ages, have always tried to meet the needs and desires that their minds and heart have created for them. That is how they have come to evolve and at the same time, that is the way their artifacts evolve. We can clearly see the reflection of the socio economic conditions, the natural environment and the aesthetic sensibilities of a particular age in their art and artifacts. So, how have the people of the United States of America evolved? What can be taken as the yardstick for their growth from the colonized states to the Superpower that the USA is today?
Furniture in America can stack up against the way the society has grown. Let us explore that growth. When the immigrants from Europe came to America in 17th century, they brought with them the various traditions of their regions, thus making America a rich storehouse.
17th century America is also referred to as the Colonial America. The furniture, then, was simple – by choice as well as by necessity. Turning to the lathe was the simplest form of articulation, as it was easier and less time consuming. The furniture was made of solid wood from the trees of Oak, Birch, Maple and Walnut, the only finishes being waxing and staining. The states of Pennsylvania and Delaware, settled by the colonists of Swedish and German descent along with the English colonists, where we can see the motifs from the European peasant art.
In the later years, when the trade with the Orient grew, the textile patterns were heavily influenced. The colors from India, Persia and China crept into the native textiles. The conventional color palate consisted of gold, red, blue and natural gray. The English aristocrats who settled in south led a lavish lifestyle and most of their furniture was imported from England.
Early colonial furniture, while being sturdy, was not subtle. The cupboards and drawers were relieved by the paneling, the fronts of which were embellished by heavy brass and wrought iron hardware. The craftsmen were influenced by the memoirs the colonists had brought from their homeland, the Dutch being the most influential among all. Hollander king, William of Orange, along with his queen Mary, gave quite many styles and forms to the American furniture, scrolled legs being the most important contribution. Even today scrolled legs are amongst the important feature in antique furniture.
The most common furniture found were armchairs, side chairs, cabinets, dressers, chests, drawers, highboys, lowboys, night tables and stools. Corner tables, pedestals and fire places were the additional elements one can find in the early colonial American residence of the 17th century.
With the current rage of period furniture, knowing how to arrange the furniture in your home to create the most authentic settings becomes the most important aspect. This series of posts will introduce you to the characteristic settings of each period. The next post ahead will be decorating your living room the colonial style!!!

Choosing The Best Living Room Furniture Option For Your Life

With what seems like the endless stream of options available to you, how does one choose the style of living room furniture that will work best for them and their family? Would a full sofa work best? What about a loveseat or reclining leather chair? Leather or cushion? Furniture shopping can quickly turn into a full time job. To make your search a little easier, here are some factors to consider when making your final decision.

How much time do you spend in your living room? The more time you’ll be spending there, the more imperative adequate space and comfort are.

Do you have kids? Young or old? Young kids lend themselves to spills, rough-housing and the like – hence, leather would probably best the best route to take here. A full sofa would work better than a loveseat for households with children; better for gathering the family on for snuggling purposes.

Do you frequently have overnight guests (and no guestroom)? If so, a full sofa set might be a better idea than a loveseat since it provides more space for couch surfing friends or family.

Recliner chairs rarely work as the only furniture for a room; but provide an excellent compliment to a sofa. Reclining chairs are perfect for working from home, relaxing after a hard day with a good book or paying bills.

Take these guidelines into consideration while shopping, but in the end do what feels right in your guy and works with your budget.
