Furniture shopping? Help us help you with these easy tips

Winter is in full swing and many home good stores are offering sales, so it’s a great time to find that perfect piece to dress or refresh any room in the house. But before venturing out, we recommend considering a few key choices that often perplex patrons: size, colors, textures, how a piece is made, payment options and delivery. All great factors to think about before investing in a large purchase—and one you want to last a long time. Here are a few tips to help us help you in your quest:

  • Snap a photo of the room you want to furnish with your mobile phone—this will give us an idea of the style, colors and textures you’d like to complement.
  • Bring an inspiration item with you such as a pillow, fabric or paint swatch, Pinterest photos or magazine clippings to build from.
  • Know your dimensions—measure the height, depth and length of the furniture piece you want to replace or the space where you want the piece to sit.
  • Check for kiln-dried frames which tend to be stronger and stand the test of time.
  • Be prepared to pay in full at the time of the order or in some cases a percentage down at select stores.
  • Lastly, understand your delivery options: do you want to pick up in-store, receive local home delivery, or have the item(s) drop shipped direct to your home? Note: these latter two options are typically at an additional cost.
