Spring Themes for Awesome Indoor and Outdoor Decor

Spring season is here! The spring season kicked off officially on March 20, which marks another important transition time for home decoration themes. Now is the time to clean out the house and incorporate all-new spring themes for your bedrooms and common areas. Here are some spring decorating ideas to get help you welcome in the new season:

Failproof Spring Theme: Flowers and Blossoms

Out of all the spring themes, flower themes are the most iconic. Nothing says “springtime” more than simple flowers like sunflowers and daffodils. The highlight of the spring season is when flowers come to bloom, and this should be reflected in your decor choices.

For instance, you can opt for floral pillowcase patterns for your living room throw pillows, or pick out some breezy flower-themed sheets for the bedrooms. Of course, you can’t go wrong with using real, actual flowers as centerpieces and accents in various places around the home!

Watering Can Decor

For springtime, your decor should make use of garden-themed items and tools. A perfect one to use is a watering can. These make excellent indoor decoration items, especially if you paint them over with a pastel hue. For a more vintage look, go for a turquoise or dark green paint job. They also make surprisingly cool pots for placing flowers in, especially taller ones like tulips.

Spring Themes for Awesome Indoor and Outdoor Decor

Ladybugs for the Kiddies

Ladybugs are another iconic symbolism of springtime, as they emerge in great numbers during the spring months. Many believe that ladybugs are good luck, especially if one lands on you. They represent the outdoors, blossoming flowers, and the cheery disposition associated with spring.

Ladybug-themed decor works especially well for children’s bedrooms and nurseries. You can make cartoon-like cutouts for wall decor, or get some bed covers with ladybug designs on them for the kids.

Birdhouses for Indoor and Outdoor Decor

Birds are another staple image of springtime. All things bird-related will do well as decor items, especially those related to the smaller, chirpier bird varieties. In particular, birdhouses make for some great decor items. You can paint them pastel or bright colors to signify spring, and maybe pair them with some bird nest decor as well.

Birdhouse decor goes well indoors, especially smaller ceramic models; they make great decor outdoors as well, and of course can be functional if you’d like them to be.  

Spring Themes for Awesome Indoor and Outdoor Decor

Bright and Sunny Yellow Hues

For overall decor themes, the color yellow is an outstanding springtime color. It adds a dash a vibrancy and shine to any room. Even just a dab of yellow will provide the space with a happy, free feeling. A favorite DIY project is to paint a dresser or a small nightstand yellow for the spring season. For the bathroom areas, yellow towels and throw rugs, along with some lemon scent, can really freshen up the room.

Window Treatment Decor

Finally, don’t neglect the window areas in your home, especially in the kitchen and the dining areas. Now is the time to remove the heavy drapes and replace them with lighter, more breezy window decor. This will let more light into the room and allow you to take advantage of the extra spring sunshine, especially now that Daylight Savings has kicked in.

As the days get warmer, make sure your home reflects the new life budding all around you. If you have more extensive home decoration and design needs, contact us today at Signature Furniture Rental.

How to Design for a Small Bathroom

How to Design for a Small Bathroom

A common inquiry that many homeowners have is, “How do I decorate a bathroom that has limited space?” Now, whether your bathroom is truly small, or you’re just being modest, there are some principles and guidelines that you can apply to help maximize your small bathroom space. Also, there are some tricks you can do to create the perception that your bathroom is bigger than it really is. Read on to learn how:

Small Bathroom Storage is Key

One of the biggest challenges for small bathrooms is managing the storage space. If at all possible, the best thing you can do here is to do most of your storing outside of the bathroom. For instance, if you can store your stock of items like towels, napkins and toilet paper, and other items in a hallway cabinet, that frees up extra space in the bathroom.

If you’re pressed for storage space, consider these storage options:

  • Baskets under the sink: wicker baskets can hold a variety of bathroom supplies, while at the same time adding a stylish touch to the space under the sink
  • Some sinks can accommodate a small cabinet underneath them, complete with drawers for stowing your hygiene products. Again, the space under the sink is prime real estate for space-saving
  • Medicine cabinets don’t come standard in all bathrooms; you may want to install one, as they are truly space-savers

Keep the Floor Clear — Especially Tiles With Designs

Try to keep the floor clear of too many items; you can probably choose only one or two free-standing racks or shelves. Choose wisely and be sure the items are functional according to your needs.

Also, it’s not just a matter of space being occupied — if your decor clashes with the design on the floor tiles (or the wallpaper/tiles), the bathroom can look too “busy.” If it’s not physically cramped, too many conflicting patterns and themes can overwhelm a smaller space and create interference.

How to Design for a Small Bathroom

Go For a Monochrome Color Scheme With Slight Accents

Along the lines of not being too “messy,” stick with one or maybe two colors for the main, overall bathroom theme. Then, add some slight accents (gold, chrome, and brass make great accents here). The idea is to “tie the room together” with the main color, which will create the impression of a space that is more open, less cluttered, and clean. The slight accents will serve to break up the space while still retaining the open feel.

Mount Towel Racks Strategically

In addition to medicine cabinets, towel racks are bathroom items that don’t always come standard. If you’ll be installing your own towel racks, find a spot where it won’t take up too much additional space in terms of the room’s layout. Ring/hoop style racks can be more space-saving than traditional horizontal bar racks. They’re great for hand towels!

Also, huge, fluffy towels can take up precious real estate in the bathroom; you might want to opt for slimmer micro-fiber type towels, and save the huge hotel-style fabrics for special occasions or when you have guests.

Large Mirrors Add Depth to the Room

A large or medium-sized mirror can give the illusion of more space. Mirrors reflect light and send it throughout the room, illuminating the space. Try installing a larger mirror to enhance this effect. Alternatively, you can add a few smaller mirrors in strategic places. Mirrors also add a feeling of additional depth to the room because your eye perceives the reflection as additional space behind the wall.

How to Design for a Small Bathroom

Consider Glass — Don’t Block the Windows

Along the lines of light and mirrors, be sure not to block the source of light if your bathroom has a mirror. Of course, you need your privacy, but blocking the window with shampoo bottles or decorative plants can really dim down the bathroom’s brightness.

Also, if you’re up to it, consider switching to glass doors rather than a traditional shower curtain. Since the glass is transparent, it allows you to see more of the bathroom. With a shower curtain, the room appears to “stop” right where the curtain is.  

Having a huge bathroom is not always an option, and some people actually prefer the coziness of a smaller setup. By following these tips, you can enjoy your bathroom oasis while at the same time preventing a cluttered and sloppy look. Did you need more interior design and furniture options for your home?

Luxurious Copper Interior Design Tips for Your Home

A popular trend in indoor design is the use of soft metallic colors, both as accents and as central color themes. In particular, copper has the effect of warming up a space and making it more inviting for guests. Copper in its natural state has a color that is mesmerizing and alluring, while at the same time somewhat light and not overbearing. It’s a tad bit flashier than bronze, but not as gaudy as gold can be. Thus, it’s the perfect metallic color for those trying to avoid extremes. Here are some copper interior design tips and guidelines to consider:

Use Copper to Display Your Kitchenware

Kitchenware is functional and can also make excellent design and decor accents. In particular, unique vintage copper kitchen pieces can be used to beautify the dining and cooking areas.

For instance, copper jars work particularly well for displaying wooden spoons and ladles.  Fancier copper plates can be showcased on a shelf and arranged by size for a lovely presentation. Experiment with smaller copper salt and pepper shakers for fun and quirky table settings. The possibilities are endless!

Luxurious Copper Interior Design Tips for Your Home

Get Creative with Copper Wire

Copper wire has long been used in the jewelry and craft industry due to its malleability (ease of shaping). It’s commonly twisted into abstract shapes and figurines, and is also used for holding beads and precious gems into place for pendants. Using these same principles, you can use copper wire for accentuating all kinds of indoor decorations. Popular copper wire projects include small animal shapes, musical instruments, and tree of life symbols.

Create the Perfect Room Ambience with Copper Lamps

As mentioned, a main effect of copper interior design work is to add a certain touch of warmth to a space. It also adds an earthy, grounded feeling to any room, as it’s associated with similar colors such as red clay or red earth. This is actually perfect for lamps and other lighting implements where you are aiming to achieve a more muted lighting effect.

Lights that are too bright can be harsh and abrasive on the eyes. Tempering a lamp with a softer bulb and with a copper lamp shade can make all the difference.

Luxurious Copper Interior Design Tips for Your Home

Fill in the Gaps with Copper Spray Paint

Lastly, even if you can’t get your hands on some copper items, you can turn any item into a copper piece with some copper spray paint! This is an excellent, cost-effective way to create new decor pieces, upcycle old vintage items, or repair broken or worn decorations. You can get a fresh, clean copper look to turn any item into a brand new decoration piece.

This idea works great for lamps, pots, cans, and other items that are normally metallic. It also works unexpected wonders for pieces like wicker baskets, boxes, and wooden items. Another benefit of copper spray paint is that you can usually select the reflectiveness of the paint; you can go from a matte finish to the more shiny end of the spectrum.

As you can see, there’s so much you can do by incorporating copper into your interior design themes. With just a few simple touches, you can give your home truly unique and fascinating look.

Fancy Diningware is a Must

Now is the time to break out your absolute best in diningware.

DIY Custom Candles

Candles symbolize a number of things when it comes to couples. They can symbolize the light of love and the warmth of affection. To make your expressions stand out, try your hand at some DIY candles.

Personalized Wine Bottles

Wine is definitely an enjoyable aspect of Valentine’s Day dining. Besides pairing with your entrée of the evening, your wine choice can actually be a part of your decor theme.

Think of it like classroom Valentine’s Day cards, but for grown-ups.

Here’s a tip: buy more than a few bottles — some for drinking, and some for keeping as a reminder of a special evening. Who knows — if it’s your first date, you might look back at the bottle in years to come and be reminded of your fond years of courtship. Personalized candies can also accomplish a similar effect.

How to Manage Children’s Bedroom Decor Through the Years

Decorating childrens’ bedrooms can be tricky. For one, they’re constantly growing physically and can have changing needs in terms of furniture and room space. Secondly, their tastes and preferences can change dramatically as the years go by. Here are some tips and guidelines on how to manage transitions for your child’s bedroom:

Be Aware of New Children’s Bedroom Decor Trends

New trends are something that can inspire re-decorating for a kid’s bedroom. For instance, your child be intrigued by a new cartoon, toy, video game, or comic character. You can incorporate some of these brands and merchandise into beddings, posters, pillows, and other decor items.

Your child might switch interests frequently when they’re younger, but most reach a point where they eventually outgrow pop media-based decor items (decorating for teens is a drastically different story!). In the meantime, enjoy decking out the room with cool and zany themes!

Choose Colors Wisely

Though their favorite toys and bedsheet decor might change over the years, chances are your child will have preference for a certain color or color combinations that will last. If you can identify these preferences, you can save some time and money in the long run by stocking up on items with these color combinations.

On the other hand, colors can change too though over the years. Brighter colors are typically more suitable for toddlers who need plenty of visual stimulation. As your child grows, transition into more subdued and muted hues.

How to Manage Children’s Bedroom Decor Through the Years

Plan Ahead and Get Bigger Furniture from the Get-Go

In a certain sense, children’s furniture can be like clothes — as the child develops physically, they’ll soon need bigger sizes. You may want to plan ahead and get slightly bigger furniture items so that they can grow into them more gradually. A excellent option is furniture rental, which can provide more affordable and practical options, especially during growth spurt stages.

Incorporate Functional Furniture for Specific Purposes

In addition, you can incorporate furniture that can be used for your child’s specific needs. For instance, you may want to set up a study corner with a desk and a nice chair for homework time. If you child loves reading, you can set up a comfy reading chair near the bed. These are activities that your child will be doing for years to come, so you likely won’t need to change these as often as other items, like bedding decor.  

Highlight Your Child’s Accomplishments

Your child’s achievements and accomplishments never go out of style. You can highlight your child’s greatest moments by decorating the room with their awards, trophies, certificates, and other meaningful trinkets. Even books that they have read can make wonderful decor items. Your child will feel a sense of pride each time they see these items.

How to Manage Children’s Bedroom Decor Through the Years

Get Your Child’s Input

Lastly, nothing is more direct than simply getting your child’s input when it comes to the appearance of their room. Who knows — they might have some very good suggestions and ideas of their own regarding aesthetics and design. You might be raising a future interior designer!

Also, some kids might be too shy or even embarrassed to say if they don’t like the way their room looks or feels. A little conversation can go a long way, and can help you and your child achieve a suitable bedroom look.

Your child’s bedroom will undergo numerous makeovers over the years. As time passes, you can be ready for all sorts of changes and adjustments by following these simple guidelines.

Best Bedroom Interior Decorating Trends for Inspiration

For most of us, the bedroom is something of a sanctuary, a personal retreat where we can rest and recuperate after a busy day. New bedroom interior decorating trends are pushing this even further, adding ultra-luxurious appeal to our already comfortable spaces. Have a look at these bedroom decor ideas for inspiration:

Create Your Own Personal Retreat

When it comes to bedroom decor trends, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s no shame in splurging on yourself to create the most lush environment to pamper yourself in. Feel free to add extra plush pillows, larger bed frames, and super-soft throw rugs. Speaking of soft, you’ll also want to opt for softer colors and lighter hues that are easy on the eyes, rather than jarring colors.

Be sure to pay attention to overlooked aspects like wallpaper and flower decor, as these can really add those finishing touches to your room.

Hotel-Like Amenities

Along with the idea of creating a personal retreat, some home decorators are taking things a step further and adding perks that you’d normally find in a hotel suite. These include amenities like coffee makers, tea stations, candles, and even boutique soaps and high-end towels. These can really make you feel well taken care of and can add a fancy, extravagant look and feel to your bedroom (not to mention actual functional convenience, as well!).

Best Bedroom Interior Decorating Trends for Inspiration

Custom Beddings

Another up-and-coming trend is to pick out custom beddings for your room. We’re not talking about tacky pillows with your initials on them, or blankets with cheesy graphics. Rather, we’re referring to selections of custom fabrics that have been converted into beddings. These include silks, cottons, and other natural fibers that provide you with a look and feel that you can’t get with store-bought items. While this may seem costly at first, you’d be surprised at the deals you can score by linking up with a professional fabric dealer in your area.

Regional Themes

A good way to provide coherency for your bedroom decor is to work with a theme. Popular themes this year will include decor that is light, breezy, and open. These styles use lighter colors like cream and off-white, and focus on lighter bedsheets rather than heavy comforters. Examples include Mediterranean decor, oasis themes, and coastal/beach themes. These are perfect for San Diego homes!

Best Bedroom Interior Decorating Trends for Inspiration

Multi-Purpose Decor and Design

The master bedroom has become more than just a place to sleep — it’s now become an all-in-one space where you can do multiple tasks without going anywhere. It’s perfectly acceptable now to have various uses for the bedroom.

For instance, you can dedicate a corner of the room for a crafting/hobby station; or, you can have a designated spot for reading. As referenced above, you can have a small area where you can drink the coffee you brewed up in your room.  Along with these activities, you can also integrate decor to highlight the space, such as framed artwork or other hanging items. It’s your room — you can do as you please with it!

The entire function and purpose of the master bedroom has greatly expanded. Along with that, the opportunities for new decor ideas has also grown.

We have the perfect bedroom furniture items and packages for rental to help you create your own personal suite!


The Best Lighting Decor Tips to Brighten Up Your Home

Besides color choices, interior lighting is one of those subtle aspects of design that aren’t directly noticeable, but can have a huge effect on the room’s overall appearance. After all, what good are your interior decor choices if you can’t see them? By following some simple lighting decor tips, you can bring out the best in any room of your home.

Top Lighting Decor Tip: Lamp Placement

In most cases, the main source of your indoor lighting is going to be some sort of lamp. The placement of the lamp is crucial for lighting. Consider these main placement areas:

  • Ceiling Lamps/Chandeliers: These are great for overall lighting and visibility in the room.
  • Floor Lamps: These can also provide about as much lighting as a ceiling lamp; they also have the added benefit of mobility.
  • Table Lamps: These lamps are excellent for providing concentrated lighting for tasks like reading, crafting, and hobbying.
  • Wall Lamps: These are great for providing dim lighting in areas where a small amount of light is needed, such as the hallway or the bathroom.

Don’t forget to consider the watt intensity and color spectrum of the bulbs in your home. Some bulbs provide more natural light, while others provide more “sterile” types of lighting. Also, some lamps provide multi-functional uses, and can be used for different purposes.

The Best Lighting Decor Tips to Brighten Up Your Home

Use Mirrors and Windows Strategically

Other sources of light in the home besides lamps are windows and mirrors. Windows let natural light in from the outside, while mirrors can have the effect of reflecting and magnifying any light sources in the house. Pay attention to these two important aspects of the room, and use them to your advantage to control the amount of light you’re working with.

For instance, if you don’t want too much lighting in a room, you may wish to minimize the light coming in through a window using drapes or shutters. Conversely, opening up some blinds can brighten up a room instantly. This might seem like common sense, but many people don’t adjust their window lighting at all. You’d be surprised at the effects!

The Best Lighting Decor Tips to Brighten Up Your Home

Make Use of Lighting Accessories

Lastly, the field of lighting decor has a whole bucket of accessories for you to work with. Once you’ve got your basic lighting theme setup, you can customize your look even further with accessories like:

  • Custom lampshades
  • Colored light bulbs
  • String lights
  • Timed or programmable lights
  • Candles and fireplace lighting

Observe how these accessories and adjustments interact with your furniture and with the other colors in the room. Once you get into this area of decor, chances are you’ll love it and never want to stop! Your guests will be amazed at the dynamic effects that a few small lighting changes can make.

Lighting decor planning is one of the most fun and easiest aspects of interior design. If you need more comprehensive decor and furniture changes in your home, contact us today at Signature Furniture Rental. We have a whole host of furniture rental items and packages, as well as lighting items, to help you create the dream look you’ve always wanted.


5 Simple and Easy Winter Home Decor Ideas for 2016-2017

Just because it doesn’t snow here in San Diego doesn’t mean that you can’t get into the winter spirit! When it comes to winter decor trends, simpler is often better. Here are some easy-to-do winter home decor ideas that can really transform your home into a winter wonderland:    

Bring the Outdoors Inside

If you notice, a lot of winter decor has to do with the outdoors: trees, wreaths, mistletoes, snow, etc. Take things a step further and bring some actual outdoor items inside and rework them into lovely decor. Pine cones and twigs work especially well here, as do logs and small tree trunks. These can be painted, stained, varnished, or just left natural to add a bit of freshness to your indoor setup.

5 Simple and Easy Winter Home Decor Ideas for 2016-2017

Cabin/Ski Lodge Look

This theme is perfect for dens or living rooms! Transform your lounging space into a rustic getaway with some hanging antlers or a fur rug. Emphasize the fireplace and hearth with some hanging garlands to draw attention to the warm spot in the room. You may also want to consider adding more wood furniture, especially with your table and chair setup.

Finish it all off with a plaid throw blanket on the couch for functional, practical decor. Plaid scarves can also be used for some out-of-the-box touches.

Bring on the Brass

While the winter season is often associated with gold touches, brass works equally as well. The rich, deeper color of brass can really complement the evergreen candle holders, tea pots, brass reindeer and other figurines/sculptures, bells, and other items. It adds a touch of metal that is down-to-earth and not too gaudy.

Tip: Brass instruments can work well here too — put your old trumpet or flugelhorn on display!

Winter Treat Displays

It’s been a long-standing principle that food can be decorative as well as delicious. In particular, winter snacks can add a very charming and subtle touch to your living room or dining room. Set out some hot cocoa, S’mores, egg nog, or chocolate truffles to suggest a feeling of warmth and cozy toastiness in the space.

Tip: Throw some candy canes in your hot cocoa for added winter effect. The best part? You can eat the decor and come up with new ones everyday!

5 Simple and Easy Winter Home Decor Ideas for 2016-2017

Small Figurines

Ceramic figurines are making a big comeback this year. Well, they never really went anywhere, but they appear to be a hot item this season. We suspect that with all the technology and phones, people love to return to simple items that you can touch (but don’t break!) and observe without having to find in an app.

Popular figurine choices of course include reindeer, snowmen, and trees. A surprisingly effective figurine choice is a small ceramic log cabin (works especially well with the cabin theme mentioned above).  


As you can see, this year’s overall trend is to move towards a more traditional, old-time decor feel for the winter months. Try your hand at these ideas and see what variations you can come up with! If you need additional ideas for home decor and furniture, feel free to contact us at Signature Furniture Rental. We have lovely packages and individual furniture items available for rent, so you can achieve that look you’ve always wanted.

Bookshelf Ideas to Smarten Up Your Home

In this age of digital media and ebooks, one would think that printed books would be going out of style. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case. People still love holding books in their hands and curling up for a nice read. In addition, people still love collecting books and displaying them proudly in their bookshelves. Lately, bookshelf ideas are abound as home decorators come up with more and more ways to beautify their homes.

Bookshelves and book displays are a quick and easy way to add a touch of intellect to your space. Read on to learn more about some awesome bookshelf ideas!

Full Wall Setup

For those with lots and lots of books, a full wall bookshelf is ideal. This allows you to proudly display a large portion of your collection, and gives you immediate access to your favorite reads. While it may seem like a full wall shelf would take up a lot of space, the eye tends to interpret the shelf as basically a wall rather than an additional object taking up space.

Even better are wall bookshelves that are recessed into the wall — these really don’t take up any space!

Minimal Space Hanging Wall Shelves

Hanging bookshelves are excellent for smaller spaces. Rather than occupying floor space, these shelves hang on the wall, allowing you to use the extra room for other furniture like chairs, sofas, or even a desk.

Hanging wall shelves aren’t just limited to small spaces, though — you can use them in larger areas, like the living room or in the den, to make a spacious area appear even grander.

Bookshelf Ideas to Smarten Up Your Home

Interesting Shapes and Designs

Speaking of hanging wall book shelves, an interesting trend lately is to arrange the hanging shelves in visually fascinating patterns. For instance, rather than just having a straight shelf, you can design a shelf in the pattern of a tree, with each branch forming a shelf level. Circular shapes and shelves in the shapes of letters and words are also creative options.

Glass Door Bookshelves

Books can be very fragile, and require care and protection. If you leave them as they are, over time they will experience damage, such as yellowing pages. One thing you can do to protect your books is to install a glass case bookshelf. This will keep your precious items free from dust, moisture, and other damaging elements.

Many bookshelves come with glass doors at the front; if you already have a bookcase that you love and want to add glass for protection, it’s a pretty easy do-it-yourself project.

Bookshelf Ideas to Smarten Up Your Home

A Few Additional Tips:

  • Get creative with the way you organize your books. Take a more visual approach and organize books by height, color, width, or other aspects.
  • Bookshelves can be used to store and display other items, such as picture frames, model airplanes, awards, and even odd items like plants or wine selections.
  • Facilitate reading by placing your reading corner or area near the bookshelf. Upgrade your reading spot with your favorite cozy chair or sofa, ample reading light, an end table, and maybe a small speaker or two for some ambient reading music.

Don’t let your old books go to waste! They can make really excellent additions to your decor lineup, and can spark up topics for discussion for your guests.

4 Rental Furniture Design Trends for Your San Diego Home

It’s always fun to stay informed when it comes to furniture arrangement and design trends. Implementing a fashionable idea is a great way to express your creativity while staying within bounds that people can recognize. People love seeing “your take” on an existing theme, and it creates communication between fellow designers and home decorators.

Here are 4 popular home staging and furniture design trends to keep your eye out for:

Most Popular Design Trend: A Return to Simplicity

At the moment there is a trend to move away from more gaudy, showy furniture design trends to more simplistic, streamlined arrangements. This means sharper lines, more modern colors (like whites, chromes, and silvers), and more open space. The end result is a furniture layout that mimics the minimalistic designs now found in our technology (such as our phones and computers). This also allows the room to “breathe” and creates a sense of ease and relaxation.

4 Rental Furniture Design Trends for Your San Diego Home

Softer Palettes

Along with the move to simpler arrangements, homeowners are opting for softer color palettes as well. These make it “easy on the eye” and help create a less intrusive, more inviting look. Softer palettes work extremely well for rooms where comfort is expected, such as the bedroom or the living room. It also creates a somewhat more neutral base if you’d like to highlight other aspects of the room, such as the windows or a specific piece of art.

For softer colors, check out Signature Furniture Rental’s Camden Chair in Stone or the lovely Travertine Coffee Table. We have a whole array of furniture colors for all your needs.   

Formal Dining Rooms

Formal dining rooms are back! For a while, people forgot about the dining room and just sort of started eating anywhere — at the kitchen counter, outside, etc. There’s nothing wrong with that; however, quality family time can be sacrificed if everyone is split up during mealtime.

Recently, there’s been a conscious movement to have an actual sit-down dinner with the entire family. We suspect that smartphones may actually have something to do with it. People have been hearing “no phones at the table” for a while now; in the process, it’s possible that people started realizing, “Hey wait a minute! We actually don’t even eat at the table!”

As a result, formal dining table setups are back, along with more quality meal-times. At Signature Furniture, we have loads of dining room furniture options for you to choose from to help foster that old-time family environment.

Using Furniture for Multiple Purposes

More and more people are renting items that can be used for multiple purposes. Part of this has to do with the trend of living in smaller spaces; people want to maximize the space that they have, and sometimes this means using furniture in fun, non-traditional ways.

For instance, “sofa tables” don’t need to be used strictly behind a couch. Their unique size makes them perfect in hallways up against a wall, or even in a bathroom. Likewise, end tables can be used for displaying art, propping up a lamp, or storing newspapers.

Basically, the possibilities are endless and the choices are up to you! Creative use of furniture can help you get the most bang for your buck. Are you looking for the perfect solution to your furniture and home decor needs? Give furniture rental a shot — you’ll have plenty of options to choose from at mind-blowing rates.
