Eco-Friendly at The Roomplace

Make your choice Green!

What do you consider when you are choosing a place to buy furniture? We’re sure you probably think about the quality, cost, delivery options, financing, warranties, selection and reputation of the brand and/or furniture retailer. Is it fair to say that those are the most important factors? Maybe not. Have you ever considered not purchasing furniture from a retailer because they aren’t green, as in eco-friendly?

With the changes in the earth’s atmosphere, the concept of “going green” has gone from being a craze to being a lifestyle change for many people. Blue recycling bins can be found virtually everywhere, along with people who are willing to play their part to save our environment. However, saving our environment only begins with the small things that can fit into a can. What about larger items, such as a mattress, living room furniture or bedroom furniture? Do you think recycling furniture is eco-friendly?

How do I dispose of old furniture?

There are quite a few ways you can dispose of your old furniture to make room for a new set. If your furniture is still in decent condition, one of the best and most eco-friendly ways to get rid of it is by selling. This might take a little longer than calling a junk removal company, but it’s better for the planet. Plus, it will give you some extra money to spend on new The RoomPlace furniture. When you have furniture that’s in less-than-great condition, consider recycling. Not all furniture is easy to recycle, but you can usually find a way to do it depending on the base materials. For example, metal can be taken a scrap dealer.

How do I dispose of old mattresses?

If you’ve been browsing our selection of The RoomPlace mattresses and are wondering what to do with your current one, you have a few options. Mattresses aren’t something you usually want to sell, and depending on your state, there can even be some legal restrictions for selling a used mattress. This doesn’t mean you have to take a trip to the dump, though.

Here’s an interesting fact: While mattresses are one of the most difficult items to recycle, “95% of the material in mattresses is recyclable. Metal springs can be recycled and the steel reused. Polyurethane foam can be shredded and used for carpet pads and insulation. Wood in foundations can be processed by wood chippers used for fuel or mulch. (Source: Enviro-Recycle)” Powered with that knowledge, let us ask what do you think about recycling your old mattress. Would you go through a few extra steps to make sure your mattress is disposed of in an eco-friendly way? Or better yet, will your furniture retailer recycle your old mattress?

Do I have to call a private service to get rid of my old mattress?

You don’t always have to use a private service to dispose of your mattress. The furniture store you’re buying from will likely pick up your old mattress when they deliver your new one. However, it’s what they do with your mattress that matters.

While many companies prefer just throwing away that old mattress, The RoomPlace and our 300,000 square foot Distribution Center is playing a role in protecting our planet by being eco-friendly and recycling it. In fact, we are not only recycling mattresses, but The RoomPlace also recycles the packing materials such as the cardboard, Styrofoam and the plastic that is used to protect your bedroom or living room furniture prior to delivery.

Now, this is no small feat as the Distribution Center is responsible for supporting 21 stores within the Chicagoland and Indiana area. That means literally tons of recyclable material enter and exit those doors daily. For a better understanding of how much is recycled on a monthly basis, let’s review the numbers:

The Room Place recycles 41.835 tons of cardboard per month on average.

Fun Fact: Recycling 1 ton of cardboard saves 9 cubic yards of landfill space and 46 gallons of oil. (Source: Earth911)

Monthly The Room Place recycles 675 pounds of Styrofoam per month on average.

Fun Fact: A male Siberian Tiger (Amur Tiger) typically weighs between 450 – 675 lbs. (Source: Pittsburgh Zoo)

1,116 pounds of plastic is recycled through The Room Place’s Plastic Bailer Per Month.

Fun Fact: 1,116 pounds is equivalent to lifting 11 couches or 13 love seats from the Bravado Collection. By the way, the Bravado Living Room Collection is made of eco-leather and from an eco-friendly manufacturer.

Create Upscale Living with Interior Designer, Kyle Schuneman!

When decorating a living room you can never go wrong with a neutral palette but the key to a successful design is how you put it together.  In this room, since all the furniture was calm I wanted to splash some excitement on the walls with a sophisticated and rich green.  Now, sometimes people get scared to paint their walls but I think what makes neutral rooms work is that tension.  And also keep in mind when you’re painting, that curtains, artwork and furniture  will break up that color.

Where to Start

I always think of the floors as my fifth wall so I went with the really bold Torrey rug that has an earthy color palette.  It’s the star of the room and then everything is built around it.  The Stratus sectional is the perfect complement to it because it’s big and inviting but doesn’t fight it’s pattern.

As you probably know by now I love mixing materials so I went with a metal and glass coffee table to be able to see the pattern of the rug and then chose a wood and stone credenza to round out the layers. That mixing of textures starts to tell the story of your room and makes boring neutral turn into classic and rich.  The Cordova chair is a great pop of color to pull out of the rug. Yes, grey is a color!

How to Accessorize

Throw in some great accessories and you have a well-worn room that will be the backdrop for many family memories to come. And that’s the key to design – creating your family’s backdrop and story, so take the time to build the space that you want to envelope you for years!

How to Make a Sectional Work in Your Space

Sectionals have a way of transforming any space into an inviting haven. But you might think you don’t have enough room for it to work. Think again. You don’t necessarily need a massive area to make a sectional work. Sectionals can create a cozy ambiance in rooms of various sizes. These tips from The RoomPlace tell you how.

Take Measurements

While sectionals can work in rooms of different sizes, you still need to make sure the sizing is right. This applies to the room in which you’ll be placing the sectional as well as the entryways leading into that room. Measure doorways to ensure what you purchase can actually get into your house.

Also measure the length and width of the chosen room. Determine the general area in which your new sectional will be placed, then measure specific areas to ensure you have adequate space to accommodate the sectional’s various pieces.

Sectionals can include anywhere from two to six or more pieces, with options that include sofas, ottomans, chairs and chaises. Once you have the measurements of the room and a good idea of space available for specific pieces, you’ll know the type of sectional and pieces that will work for you.

Determine Arrangement

Your next step is to nail down exactly where each piece of your sectional will be placed. This can be challenging, especially in smaller rooms, but it can be done with advance planning and a number of helpful tips.

Remove other furniture: Too many furniture pieces can make a room appear crammed and cluttered. They can also eat up space that could otherwise be used for your new sectional. Eliminate extra floor lamps, end tables, chairs or other pieces that take up unnecessary space or wont’ be needed when your new seating arrangement arrives.

Approximate wall distance: When it comes to aesthetics, sectionals generally look better when placed away from the walls. Placing it in a corner against a wall, however, is an ideal way to maintain as much open floor space as possible. Figure out if you want the sectional against the wall or away from it. If you choose the latter, make sure it doesn’t impede traffic flow around the room or block any doorways. It should also leave enough room for people to walk around and behind it as needed.

Pinpoint your focus: Every room tends to have at least one focal point, which can be the entertainment center, fireplace or stunning artwork. You want your sectional to be placed in a way that emphasizes the focal point instead of detracting from it. You don’t want the sectional itself to be the focal point.

Choose color wisely: If you think the sectional may look too massive in your space, consider going for a lighter color. If you prefer a darker color, you can lighten it up with decorative throw pillows. Throw pillows are also handy for adding a pop of color, contributing to coziness and hiding any stains on the main fabric.

With your game plan in place, selecting a sectional that works for your space can be an exciting endeavor instead of a stressful one. Get started now by browsing the sectional selection at The RoomPlace.

Tips to Refresh Your Living Room Design – The RoomPlace

Your living room is meant to be one of the most welcoming spaces in your home, and you can ensure it lives up to that status with any number of strategic changes. These tips from The RoomPlace can help you refresh your living room design, with options that are subtle or bold as you desire.

Swap Out the Old Sofa

As the room’s main seating area and major focal point, your living room sofa really needs to pop. Does it? Look at your sofa through a fresh set of eyes to determine if it needs a bit of refreshing. A new slipcover may be able to do the trick, or you could go all out and invest in a new sofa that breathes new life into the room, instantly.

Go for Brand New Living Room Set

If it’s more than the sofa that needs a lift, you can try a full-scale living room set. Sets come with ample seating in matching pieces that can be arranged and rearranged to suit your needs and mood. You’ll also find a generous selection of materials, colors and styles to create just the look you want.

Add New Accents

A few new accent pieces can create a whole new ambiance for the room. Try a large mirror or other wall décor to perk up a tired wall. A new lamp can literally shed new light on the room. An eye-catching area rug can pull the whole room together. Accent furniture can add a dash of class while combining style with function.

Include a Savvy Chair (or Two)

You know those sophisticated chairs that always catch your eye? Now is the time to buy one. Just like accent furniture, a stylish accent chair can add a sophisticated vibe to the entire space. The style choices are downright amazing, and material options range from velvet to leather with patterned fabric and studs in between.

Revamp Your Storage

Perhaps your existing credenza could use a boost. Or maybe you don’t have adequate storage in your living room at all. Either way, a new cabinet or buffet could again bring you a functional piece with incredible style. Enclosed storage pieces not only let you easily stash needless clutter, but they can serve as a sensational focal point.

Get the Perfect Table

Another way to pull the entire room together is with the perfect coffee table. The coffee table is another focal point of the room, so it needs to be worthy of all that attention. Look for a piece that fits the size, style and colors of the room while serving as a central hub for the seating area. If a coffee table is not your thing, occasional tables are another choice for adding more surface area with style. With so many ways to refresh your living room design, it may be tough to stop at just one. You certainly don’t have to. The RoomPlace is stocked with living room seating, tables, accents and décor to fit any style and budget. Start shopping now.

Sectional Sofa Buying Guide – The RoomPlace

Adding a couch to your home is imperative. It gives people a place to sit and adds something extra to your home. However, if you have a large family or like to host a lot of parties, then a traditional sofa may not suit your needs. If that’s the case, then you might consider getting a sectional instead.

These furniture options are larger and more versatile, so you can put together the piece that will work best for your space. Before rushing out and buying a sectional, there are some things you’ll need to consider.

Reasons to Get a Sectional

Adding a sectional to your home can benefit you in many ways, and below are some reasons why you should get one.

More Seating Space

The biggest reason most people get a sectional is to increase their sitting space. You also have the option of adding different elements, including recliners and chaise lounges, which give you the opportunity to put your feet up and relax.

It Fits Anywhere

If you’re like most people, then when you think about sectionals, you envision a huge piece that takes up a lot of space. While you can certainly put together a large sectional with many parts, it’s also possible to get a smaller piece. Adding a sectional can be a great way to maximize seating in a smaller room.

Creates Boundaries

One of the current housing trends is having an open floor plan. While it can be great to have a lot of space and one room flowing into another, it can also be tricky to know how to position furniture. If you add a sectional to your home, this can create a boundary and distinguish one room from another.

Different Sectional Options

Now that you know that a sectional can work in any space, it’s important to know what options exist. There are many different configurations to choose from, and that means you’ll get exactly what you want and need for your home. However, before getting overwhelmed by your options, it’s a good idea to know what’s available.

L-Shape

This sectional is shaped like an L, or two couches that come together to form a right angle. This shape makes the sectional incredibly versatile, and you can place it in the corner of a room or have it floating in the middle with a coffee table or ottoman in between.

A U-shaped sectional is great if you have a large space to fill or you want to maximize your seating space as much as possible. The great thing about this piece is that it’s perfect for encouraging intimate conversations because it has extended arms that face one another.

Curved

If you’re looking to add some modern flair to your living space, then you’ll want to consider getting a curved sectional. These are an ideal choice if you have a large space to fill. They work best when placed in the middle of the room, and their curve will bring an artistic appeal to any space.

Should you desire to change your sectional configuration every once in a while, then you’ll want to get a modular. This piece comes with multiple components that are quick and easy to change, so you can have a new style or look in your home as often as you wish.

Chaise

At the end of a long day, there’s nothing more relaxing then laying down on the couch and watching TV. When you add a chaise lounge to the end of your sectional, you’ll be able to put your feet up with ease.

Adding a sleeper to your sectional gives you what you need to entertain overnight guests. If you don’t have a dedicated guest bedroom, then adding this to your piece will ensure that everyone is comfortable and sleeps through the night.

Finding the Right Sectional

Adding a sectional to your home is a great way to add more seating for your family or for guests. However, when it comes to adding large furniture to your space, you need to make sure you are getting the right piece. To find the right sectional, you’ll need to consider the following.

The Size and Shape of Your Space

When it comes to adding a sectional to your home, it should enhance the space, not make it challenging to walk through the living room. Thus, having precise measurements and knowing how you want to lay out the piece is important.

If you are getting an L-shaped sofa or adding a chaise to the end, you’ll need to decide if they are going to be right or left oriented. To determine how it will fit in your space, you need to imagine yourself standing in front of your sectional. This will how you will determine if you want a left- or right-facing sofa.

How Many People You Want to Seat

Knowing how many people you want to seat on your sectional will help you determine what size and sections you can get for your home. How you want them to interact with one another can also help you determine what type of sectional to get.

Material Type

The fabrics that you get on your sectional can come in a wide variety of options, and when it comes to finding the right one for your home, you’ll need to consider who will be sitting on the furniture. If you have kids and pets, then you’ll probably want to get fabric that is easy to clean. The same is true if you host a lot of parties and people have a tendency to spill. You’ll also want to choose colors and patterns that match your décor.

If you’re thinking about adding a sectional to your home, this is a great way to create more seating and place something unique and stylish in your space. There are a lot of things to consider before you make a purchase, but investing the time in this endeavor will ensure you get furniture that you love.

The New Year is almost here, and we’ve got the scoop on rising trends that are here to stay. Whether you’re renovating a whole room of your house or looking for chic, trendy ways to decorate any space, read on to see some of our favorite trending looks in furniture and décor for 2019.

Down-to-Earth Colors

Versatile, brooding and deep, earth tones are popping up as a colorful, charming alternative to the white-and-gray color schemes that dominated 2018. Behr’s Color of the Year, for instance, is Blueprint, a deep yet approachable blue-green tone inspired by the sea. It happens to pair perfectly with Cavern Clay, the smooth terracotta color that Sherwin-Williams named its 2019 Color of the Year. Also on Pantone’s 2019 radar is Night Watch, a strong hunter green that offers a lush and moody look.

Beyond just paint colors, look for furniture and décor that exudes earthy charm with hues like butter yellow, copper, amber, hazelnut, moss green, jade, mahogany and warm gray. As more designers and homeowners get inspired by looking back to the mid-century modern movement, these rich, bold earth and jewel tones are being used to add personality, charm and an inviting atmosphere to any space.

Keep your dining room on-trend with a dining set that features sumptuous earth tones, like this dinette with sage green chairs. In the living area, a brown, beige or warm gray sofa or sectional is perfectly inviting and stylish.

Bohemian Inspiration

Eclectic design has never completely fallen out of style, but we’re seeing a resurgence in this trend as more people look for ways to infuse their home with color and a bit of whimsy. Along with the rising popularity of rich, earthy colors and jewel tones comes unexpected design choices, expressive color pairings, unique textures and boho charm.

Aim for the unexpected and focus on complementary colors and natural finishes when designing a bohemian-inspired space. A velvet accent chair, mauve sofa, mid-century coffee table and a vintage-inspired area rug are chic, eclectic additions to a boho living room.

High Contrast

Contrast is a timeless and essential aspect of any design, but 2019 will see some dramatic looks on the high-contrast front. Think white tile with dark grout, black-and-white floors, contrasting wood finishes and bold color choices for walls and cabinets. Add contrast easily to an existing room with new wall décor in a striking color, or a high-contrast area rug in an eye-catching pattern. Matte black is a particularly trendy color option for furniture finishes, lamps, tiles and more.

Micah Black Large Kitchen Cart from The RoomPlace

Bar Carts

This trend may be a bit more specific than those above, but it’s one we can’t ignore. Bar carts and rolling kitchen islands are hot—for good reason. They offer convenience and portability paired with a unique elegance that instantly enhances your kitchen, dining room or living area. Perfect for entertaining or everyday use, a kitchen cart is a versatile accent that will let you roll 2019 style to any room in your home.

Mid-century style is often characterized by the use of organic and geometric forms, a range of colors and a high-contrast aesthetic.

6 Steps to Staging Furniture When Selling Your House

Heritage Gray 3 Pc. Living Room from The RoomPlace
Featured Image: Heritage Gray 3 Pc. Living Room from The RoomPlace

Whether you’re selling your own home or a client’s, preparing a house to be sold presents several challenges. You want your home to sell quickly and for the highest price possible, which means ensuring the property appeals to many buyers.

One of the best things you can do to make your home sell quickly at your desired price is to stage it with beautiful furniture. Homes staged with attractive, appealing furniture and décor are proven to sell faster—and often for a higher price—than their non-staged counterparts.

Why? Staging makes it easier for potential buyers to imagine living in the home. Plus, in the age of online real estate listings, well-staged photos really pop and stand out compared to other homes, enticing more people to look at your house.

#1: Remove the clutter.

Before you worry about arranging furniture, the first step in staging is removing clutter and personal belongings from the house. Knick-knacks, family photos, wall signs, toys, and other small or customized items should be taken down, boxed up and stored elsewhere—not in the home’s closets, since prospective buyers will be looking there, too. It’s best to start with a decluttered space that’s as simple and versatile as possible, so buyers can envision living there immediately.

#2: Deep clean.

Second, maximize the house’s appeal by cleaning it thoroughly. Other than the obvious spots like the bathroom and kitchen, make sure to address any neglected areas, such as dusty light fixtures, closets, beneath rugs, gaps next to appliances, etc. If you have pets, make sure you take care of any pet odors that may be lingering. Launder all fabrics, have your carpet cleaned (professionally if possible), and air out all rooms of the house by opening windows.

Don’t forget about the exterior of your home when addressing this step. Curb appeal will attract more buyers. If possible, try to: power wash your house’s siding, clean the windows, mow the lawn, trim any overgrown bushes or plants and make sure flower beds are weed-free.

#3: Prioritize staging by room.

In case you don’t have the budget or time to stage every room of the house, focus on the rooms that have been shown to have the biggest impact on how well your listing does. Start with the living room—it’s essential. Next, stage the master bedroom, then the dining room and kitchen. Additional bedrooms are the lowest priority.

#4: Thin out your furniture.

Once you’re ready to stage your furniture, start by removing some of it. Keeping only the essentials will make each room feel bigger and further reduce the appearance of clutter, which will appeal to buyers. Obviously, you’ll want to remove any outdated or damaged items first, replacing them with new furniture if needed.

When staging your living room, for example, stick with a high-quality sofa, a loveseat or accent chairs, coffee table and an appropriately sized rug to anchor the furniture and give the space a cohesive look. Simple, contemporary pieces are best since they offer versatility and mass appeal—you want the space to look stylish yet timeless, so try to avoid designs and colors that are very trendy.

#5. Utilize the “floating” technique.

Move furniture away from the walls so that it “floats” towards the center of the room. This design technique helps the space appear bigger yet more stylish and intimate. Arrange chairs and couches facing each other to create a cozy vibe.

#6: Add some final touches.

Small finishing touches add color and life to increase your listing’s chance of success. Consider final additions of things like bowls of fruit, fresh-cut flowers, potted plants, neatly folded towels, a new welcome mat on the doorstep, etc.

With these home staging tips, you’ll be well on your way to enhancing your listing and enticing potential buyers in no time.
