If you’re looking for ways to make money from your upholstered furniture, it’s time to get creative. After all, if you didn’t buy the furniture, someone else did. And that person is probably doing just fine selling it at a profit. If you want to make some extra cash by reselling your furniture, here are five tips on upholstered furniture that will help you get started:
The five tips will help you maximize your investment.
- Buy the right size
Choose a size that’s big enough for you, but not too big for your bedroom. You want the headboard to rest on top of your mattress, so it should be at least 4 inches thick in total. That means that if you’re using a standard twin bed frame with two standard mattresses, your upholstered headboard will need to measure at least 8 inches tall and 18 inches wide. If your mattress is larger than a standard twin (or if you want extra support), then consider getting an adjustable or even custom-made bed frame with additional steel supports underneath so that it can support heavier loads without sagging or breaking under pressure (this is especially important if you plan on using your bed as an additional seating area).
- Make a good first impression
The best way to get your upholstered headboard furniture on the front page of the newspaper is to make an appointment with the local newsroom. If you’re selling a couch, for example, you might want to try leaving your contact information in the copy desk at the newspaper office or drop off a note through the mail slot at their building. That way, when someone new comes into town or someone from out of town ends up in town and needs to buy some furniture, they’ll think of you and give you a call.
- Buy quality materials
If you’re going for a small-business feel, then buyers will expect quality materials. They’ll also expect that you’ve done your homework when it comes time to make decisions about what kind of fabric or leather will work best for your room’s decor. Don’t settle for average: Buy good stuff! You’ll wind up paying more in the long run but it will be worth it when they see how amazing your sofa looks against that wall behind it.
- Offer free delivery and set up
When people are looking around online and are considering buying something like an ottoman or chair, they often don’t think about how much time
