Reuse Your Office Furniture At Home

You have old furniture you haven’t use in years. You need to make more room for storage. The easiest thing for you to do is to throw it away. You spot a wood user’s magazine at the local hardware store… and you kick yourself for not keeping for something useful!Just because something is old and unused doesn’t mean it’s useless. One of the homeowner’s personal favorites is preserving wood furniture.But before getting into the details of wood, let’s spell out the cons of steel and leather.

Steel furniture makes your office look too ultramodern, and steel cannot be as easily preserved as wood. Steal makes your home office look too much like a commercial office. You want to get away from the commercial environment.{found on jla}.

Leather furniture often gives your home office a cold appearance and behaves thermostatically with the changes in the seasons and the weather. Unless, it’s located away heat and cold, too much exposure can destroy leather and you need to replace it.{picture  found on impactsigns.com}.

Let’s get onto wood furniture. Wood is easily more treatable and maintainable. Since it hasn’t been used for a long time, you may need to retreat or paint it. Medium to light colors are great to stain your furniture rather than the hard, antique color. Variations of wood preservatives are available to protect it from damage by more extreme temperatures. Almost anything made of wood can be used for office furniture: chair, filing cabinets, desks, shelves, all which can be found in the same convenient furniture shop. The most part to keeping it clean is to dust frequently. If you have a stained or polished hardwood floor in your office, the wooden furniture would feel right at home and match the colors of the floor.{picture from zackdevito}.

In case the combination of the desk and chair do not meet the height requirements, you could always adjust either one for comfortable seating. Once the ends of the legs are sized down, just place leg covers over them for smooth movement across the floor. The same can be done for the filing cabinet. In fact, filing sleeves are also available to wooden cabinets.{picture from kathleen}.
