Scary Furniture Stories

What’s scarier than Michael Myers, werewolves, or Count Dracula? For us it’s buying insufficient furniture that doesn’t last!  Everyone has their own scary furniture purchasing story. There’s no trick ‘r treating is going on here, and we want to assist you in the furniture buying journey. Let’s look at some horrific situations that will make give you the creeps!

A Sofa That Falls Apart in a Year

Did you just obtain that pretty looking sofa for a great price? We’re all about low prices at Texas Furniture Hut, but knowing what you’re getting for a low price is the key. Many of the cheaper sofas will use foam in their cushions that will flatten out in a short amount of time. Here’s a tip before buying. Ask the sales associate to unzip each cushion to see the foam inside. You should see a block of foam wrapped with cotton (or similar substance) with a protective inner cover. If you don’t see this, it’s likely a foam only cushion that is far less durable. Don’t buy a couch that turns into a pancake in a year!

Mattresses That Kill Your Back

So you’re at the store trying out mattresses. They feel soft, relaxing, and something you could see yourself in for the next few years. That’s great, but do you know what you’re truly buying? Many mattresses feel amazing in the showroom, just to start sinking shortly after. We don’t want you walking into work looking looking like you’ve been haunted by Freddy Krueger over the course of the night. We advise that you really focus in on the brand of mattress that you’re buying. Brands such as Tempur-Pedic or Stearns & Fosters are proven to last. See it like this. You could have back pain every few from a dying mattress or be forced into making a new mattress purchase before seven years go by. Or you could buy a clinically proven mattress that is form fitting to your body and can last up to two decades. You’re actually saving money!

Wood That Scratche

Have you ever bought a tabletop and put a gash right through the top of it immediately with barely any effort? Some aren’t meant to be durable, and it’s extremely frustrating to invest in furniture that is immediately damaged! We can save you from purchasing that tacky tablecloth to cover damages up! Ask your sales associate if the table you're buying is 100% solid wood? A lot of prefabricated furniture isn’t, and the materials used to build these tables are conducive to scratching.

Horror isn’t our favorite genre at Texas Furniture Hut, and we hope to alleviate any previous furniture buying pains you may have had! Our furniture collection is both luxurious and reasonably priced, allowing a buying experience like no other in the Greater Houston area.

4 Types of Tables to Fulfill Your Living Room

As we move into the cooler months of the year, it’s a perfect time to shape up your living room. A table adds both personality and a place for storing miscellaneous items, while keeping a clean look. When walking into a furniture store you will notice a wide variation of table types. It’s important to know what kind of table you are searching for when walking in the door. Here are some common types that you will come across.

Coffee Table

A coffee table is the go-to table for most homeowners. This type of table is generally a long, low table which is usually centered in front of a sofa. This type of table can be doubled up as space to hold drinks, food, or a variation of items for a house gathering.

End Table

Maybe you already have the coffee table in your living area and need to spruce up another section of your room. An end table is a smaller piece that often measures below 30” in width and height. This small table is designed to compliment your furniture pieces, will supporting lamps, or accessories for looks. This is not a table you’d generally want to put beverages on.

Console Table

A console table is a piece that makes a bold statement for homeowners. Typically fixated against a wall, this table is supported by ormanted brackets and is usually used in decoration. This unit should be seen as an add-on for your room in comparison to a table for holding a plethora of objects. These tables compliment your walls, and can hold a few accessories such as a vase or group books.

Accent Chests

Accent chests serve a dual purpose for a perfected living space. These chests stay low to the ground and store a variety of objects like movies, books, or miscellaneous objects that only come out at certain times a year. The chest also doubles as a table standing at above 30 inches in height. With more room than an end table, these units offer placement for decorative plates, vases, pictures, or objects that you feel best fit. As with many of the other tables, the top of these chests are recommended for decoration and not for beverages.

If you’re in the hunt for luxurious furniture at an affordable rate, you have come to the right place at Texas Furniture Hut. Come in-store before October concludes to experience 20% off of all furniture items! See you soon in our Katy or Cypress, Texas locations!

An Expert's Guide to Laying Out Your Living Room

Let’s paint the picture. You’re excited about your new living room furniture, set, and/or accessories, but don’t quite know how everything fits together. For some of us organizing a living area is simplistic. For others, it takes a bit more thought. Fortunately for you there are proven methods to the madness of arranging a living space. We want your spot to not only look good, but also give you the most efficiency and meaning to the area that is being used.

Decide on a Focal Point First

Deciding on the focal point of your living area will help determine where the next dominoes fall. This could be a massive TV, a majestic fireplace, or a brand new coffee table that your recently purchased. Whatever you decide will be the piece that all of the furniture items are placed around. You need to have this item purchased or in mind, before you figure out what to do with the following items. If your focal point is a TV, the recommended distance from the unit should be between 8–12 feet. A fireplace however should remain under 8 feet. A table on the other hand can be more flexible, but should be an arms reach from your pieces. As you can see depending on what you set as the focal point, will dictate the sizing of your furniture. Oh yea, have you measured your living area yet? Get to it!

Allocate Room For EVERYTHING

When spacing out room for furniture items, sometimes we only account space for the big stuff. But don’t fool yourself, a living room is typically full of lamps, tables, lamps and tables! Before you add any significant items, be sure to have proper measurements of each furniture piece. Also allocate the 10–12 inches of spacing that you may have in between a lamp, table, or chair. These measurements all add up into your total room space.

What is Your Shape?

Each living area has its own shape. You should be attempting to buy furniture that best suits it. For instance, a big open area may be perfect for a stylish new leather sectional. Another house might be of the more closed in variety that would fit better with a cozy couch or loveseat. No matter how nice of the furniture, it has to fit the design of your living area. If you are unsure, it’s better to ask before going forward with your project!

Center the Rug

A beautiful rug adds a sense of elegance to any living room. Ensure that this rug is center, and a few inches in front of the sofa or chairs. You will always want to remember to allocate the spacing properly if a rug is an important part of your living room design.

We hope these tips can assist you in your furniture adventures! If you’re in the hunt for luxurious furniture at an affordable rate, you have come to the right place at Texas Furniture Hut. Located in Cypress and Katy, we’re confident that with our selection you’ll find your next big furniture piece within our walls. We hope to see you soon!
