The history of furniture dates back many years, and as time has gone on, more and more furniture styles have come into being. Watch this video to understand more about the different types of furniture.
Traditional furniture is often found in European countries, as furniture-making has existed there for quite a long time. You might find pieces with ornate carvings or ball and claw feet that draw heavily on the traditional style. Mid-century modern furniture is quite popular these days, which combines modern elements with sleek lines and very little ornamentation. Clean lines with smart accessories are all the rage nowadays.
The most important rule to remember when choosing types of furniture is to pick what you like. Corner Furniture is here to help you with that, with a wide variety of furniture and accessories in many different styles.

Your bedroom is the place you go to relax and take refuge from your busy life at the end of the day, and it should be as comfortable as possible. The way you arrange your bedroom furniture can have an effect on the overall mood of the room. In many bedrooms, the headboard is the focal point, and is centered on the wall opposite from the entrance to the room. It is usually more comfortable to put your bed between two windows, rather than under one window that is often open. If your bedroom is on the small side, make sure you place the bed in such a way that it doesn’t block the entrance to the room. Lighter colored furniture and bedding can keep your bedroom feeling spacious and open, making it a more pleasant place to wake up every day.

Are you thinking of building a home theatre? It’s important to plan everything out, from the electronics to the home theatre seating. For a complete list of what you will need to create a home theatre, read this article.
Build a Space
Build your home theatre in an isolated room so that no one will be disturbed by the noise. Consider building a home-theatre wing next to the family room or on the floor above the living room. Many people have even converted a spare bedroom into a theatre. Ideally, the home theatre space will be 20 by 13 feet, but a room that is at least 12 by 12 feet is acceptable.
Wire the System
Many people use a 7.1 surround sound system for the home theatre, but 9.1 surround sound systems are becoming more popular. Recessed lighting is also a common feature found in the ceilings and walls of a home theatre system.
Insulate the Walls
The shell of the home theatre system must be thoroughly insulated with R30 on the ceiling, floor, and exterior wall. Loose R11 should be used for the interior wall. Use soundproof drywall or normal drywall with sound-dampening materials. Install a solid-core door for optimal sound insulation.
Set Up the Video and Sound
After painting the drywall, it’s time to assemble the home theatre system. If you are working with the ideal 20-by 13 foot room, you should have a 110-120 inch screen. You can hide the speakers by using an acoustic panel to achieve a professional look.
Install Home-Theatre Seating
Install authentic leather theatre seating with cup-holders to create an authentic, cozy feeling in your theatre. If you have a 20-by 13 foot room, you can fit two rows of four seats. Be sure to elevate the rear row to improve visibility.
At Corner Furniture of NYC, we offer high-quality home-theatre seating for a great value. Our theatre seats go great in the living room, too. Check out our selection of furniture by visiting us online, and call us at (347) 331-0996 for more information.

When you rent an apartment, the landlord’s rules may limit what you can do. But you can still make your apartment feel more like home by following the right advice. First, position the sofa so that it separates the living room from the eating area. To create the feel of an entry hall, buy a nice bookshelf. Removable wallpaper and wall decals can turn the wall into a beautiful expression of your tastes. Curtains are great for dressing up the windows, and rugs will freshen up dated flooring. For more apartment decorating tips, watch this video.

Having an organized home office can make you feel more on top of things, which can enhance your productivity. Fortunately, it doesn’t take long to organize your home office. First, buy products that will help you get organized, including binder clips, labels, wire organizers, and rolodexes. Keep a pile of birthday cards so that you can fill one out for a friend or family member, rather than making a drugstore run at the eleventh hour. Use a stylish tray to place desk items such as your stapler, scissors, and Post-it Notes. For an easy way to store and retrieve plastic bags, put them in an empty tissue box. Buy a magnetic strip for a stylish and effective way to post reminders.
