Melanie Bartley

Homosassa, FL

Welcome! I am Melanie Bartley, and along with my husband Adam, own and operate Comforts of Home Used Furniture in Homosassa, Florida. Established in January 2010, we specialize in upscale used furniture and accessories. Adding design services to our existing business seemed like a natural extension for our customer's needs. Helping customers affordably decorate their home is my focus. Our county is located in Central Florida, along the Gulf of Mexico coast. We have many customers wanting to create a coastal look for their vacation or rental investment homes. Having a home with style, but maintaining comfort is their main concern. Designing with quality used furniture is an affordable way to achieve that goal.

I am a native Floridian and have lived in Citrus County for 43 years. My husband of 30 years and I have raised our children here and love the Nature Coast and all it has to offer it's residents. I worked as a Realtor for 20 years before we established Comforts of Home Used Furniture in 2010. I stage and re-purpose furniture for our 3,800 sq. ft. showroom every week. I am currently seeking accreditation through QC design school for Home Staging and Redesign to better serve our customers and offer professional design advice.


Q. How can I make my home show better and sell faster?
A. I can prepare your home for sale in a way that will help shorten listing length and increase sales price.

Q. How can I get my rental investment to stay occupied and earn the highest rent possible?
A. I can help you style your home to attract tenants while keeping durability and cost in consideration.

Q. I have jsut bought my new vacation home. Now what?
A. I can help you find your own "Florida" style! It doesn't have to be all seashells and palm trees! Traditional, country, cottage - they can all have a nod to coastal living with an updated approach!

Q. I want a change but can't afford a complete redo right now. What can I do?
A. I can use some of what you have, add some new pieces and rearrange it all for a completely different look - affordably!

Call me for a consultation and let me help you start enjoying "all the comforts of home"!
