It’s the new year, which means out with the old and time for a refresh! Spring cleaning, whatever you want to call it, it’s the perfect time of year to cleanse your space, get rid of your dated pieces and swap them out for something you love!
We’re coming at you with two hacks: how to sell your used furniture, and how to refresh your space with gently used!
Here’s what you need to know about how to sell furniture.
Selling furniture — the idea of it seems kind of terrible, right? Getting the furniture out of your apartment (if you’re lucky enough to find someone who actually wants to buy it from you), dealing with strangers, the awkward monetary exchange. We’re not surprised a lot of people toss their furniture instead of trying to sell furniture.
If you live in NYC, you’re super lucky. There’s a platform, AptDeco, that addresses every single problem. All you have to do is upload photos of your item to their website, and they take care of the rest. They’ll pick it up, disassemble it, work with the buyer so you don’t have to deal with strangers, and process the transaction so there’s none of that sketchy craigslist feeling! WOO!
So now, the next concept: Re-decorating with gently used.
Now your furniture is all gone — don’t make this shopping mistake! Don’t buy furniture NEW.
While some brands do retain their value, furniture shopping is a lot like buying a car. You drive it off the lot, and the value drops immediately. Save a couple hundred bucks, and consider shopping used. You can redecorate twice as much, twice as often, without breaking the bank!
Happy new year, and happy furniture hunting. If you’re looking to sell furniture and shop gently used, definitely check out AptDeco!
