What type of furniture is easy to remove and move around a house

We tend to take our furniture for granted until the time comes when we have to buy some new ones or we have to move them around. We don’t really think about them that much. But when we have to decide on what type of furniture to acquire and if removalists are required, there are a couple of things that we need to consider.

Types of Furniture- There are several ways of classifying furniture. The most common would be by the type of material used in the construction or manufacture. Then there is through the kind of use that we have for them. Here are the different types of furniture according to their uses:

Seating-Sofas usually take up the focal point in the living room. They should be comfortable and should be sturdy. Since they take a central position, they should also look good so they would not bring down the look of the place. Sofas can be made according to different styles and they can range from very heavy to light. Their unwieldy size however makes it impossible for a single person to carry them around.

Media- This type of furniture is rather new and they are all designed for holding various devices of electronics such as television sets, computers and home entertainment systems. Usually made from wood they are easy to move around on their own, but when loaded with electronic devices, you wouldn’t be able to budge them.

Accents- These are the small pieces of furniture that are used for adding a certain touch to a spot in a room. They include coffee tables and side tables. Most of the times these pieces are also made from wood and since these are quite small they are easy to move around.

Bedroom- These are the furniture that belong to the bedroom. These would include beds and dressers and others. The bed is one of the most difficult articles of home furnishing to move around. In fact, it pretty much stays in the same place.

Storage- Cabinets and shelves are mostly made from wood. Some of them are fixed so they cannot be moved around.

As to the different types of furniture according to the material used in its construction, wooden furniture are still the easiest to move around because they are a lot lighter than those made from other materials that are used for furniture construction such as metal. Plastic or vinyl furniture might be lighter but few people use those. You can find more about removalists on Oneflare.

Garden beds

Garden beds can be especially useful when it comes to growing vegetables in a limited amount. The use of the bed, prevents weeds from the surrounding area to affect the garden, allows the soil to become compact and concentrated, defines the area that you have to work on, gives a barrier against pests and insects and allows a good drainage system for your garden.

On your part, this can be beneficial because you need to bend down a bit less with the bed being raised higher than the rest of the ground. In fact, you can even sit on the edge of the bed while working on your garden if it was built in the right way.

Raised garden beds are different from planters, which are actual containers that have bottoms. Planters are more like oversized pots. Garden beds on the other hand are areas where the soil is raised by holding them back with some material.

Here is a guide on how you can make your own raised garden bed:

  • First step is to find an ideal location for the bed. It should be in an accessible spot that has good drainage and has enough lighting. It should not be in the way of a path.
  • Mark out the area. A 3 feet by 6 feet bed is ideal for most vegetables. That would just be wide enough for you to be able to reach the middle of the bed.
  • Mark the spot and then clean out the weeds and the stones from it. Start digging along the outline. You should dig out the whole section that you have marked out. You should just dig deep enough in order to bury the walling material that you would be using.
  • There are several materials that you can use for the wall of the bed. The most convenient one to use would be pieces of lumber cut to the dimensions of the bed. You can also use stones if you want.
  • Place a special fabric meant to prevent the growth of weeds at the bottom of the bed. You should make sure that it covers the whole space of the bed.

You can then start putting in the soil for the garden. Ideally it should be 1-2 feet in height.  A higher bed would work but that would require a great amount of soil
