The Difference Between Antique and Junk Furniture

There is a fine line between a vintage antique piece of furniture and a piece of junk furniture. That might seem like a silly comparison to make. After all, you can obviously tell the difference between an antique sofa versus a junk couch, right? But when you get down to specifics you’ll find that it could be easy to confuse an antique for junk. For instance, an antique is something that is several years old. Technically, so is a junk piece of furniture. An antique is often passed down through the family. That holds true for a junk piece of furniture, too. An antique can be very expensive to buy. Well, that’s where the antique and the junk actually part company. If you want to appraise your antique you’ll want to take them to a professional dealer. If you want to get rid of old furniture in Kansas City then you should consider contacting a company who specializes in this kind of removal, such as Junk King Kansas City.

So, what kind of old furniture are you holding onto? If you’re a typical household in Kansas City then the sofa in front of the television will probably see the most traffic. This piece of furniture will also take the most abuse. Everything from the springs in the cushions being flattened to a barrage of food stains and paw prints is going to decrease the value of this sofa. On the other hand, if this was an antique sofa it wouldn’t be anywhere near your television and nobody would be allowed to sit on it!

Other kinds of junk furniture could include a child’s bedroom set. It was cute when they were 3 years old, but now that they are 16 that “airplane bed” just isn’t going to cut it. Obviously, you’d have time to stow away this old furniture as your child has grown up. Where did you put it? Basement, garage or attic? If it is in anyone of those spots it’s probably been collecting dust. This is not something a kid will want to be sleeping on, so it’s got to go.

You might also have some special furniture pieces that you bought from a certain Swedish type of store. These would be those pieces that you had to assemble yourself. You know the ones that might be falling apart or you can’t open the drawer on? Yeah, they have to go, too!

Keep in mind that just because you’ve decided to hire a professional crew to show up and haul away your old furniture doesn’t mean they have to stop there. Sure, getting rid of that old junk is important but what about all the other junk you might have around the home? Could you find some stuff to get rid of in your garage? Your basement? Your attic? Of course you could! This might mean finally getting rid of all those unfinished projects that will never get finished. Once you have clean away all this clutter, you’ll discover wide open space that you forgot you even had!
