Shopping for furniture can be distressing or exciting. No matter how you view it, there is a sense of unfamiliarity when you first step into a furniture store. To help you prepare for your next expedition to the furniture store, we’ve compiled the most prevalent mistakes that shoppers make and suggest what you should do instead.
Don’t guess the measurements of rooms. Do take accurate measurements.
One of the primary mistakes furniture shoppers make is going in without the measurements of rooms in hand. Without measurements, you’ll estimate how pieces will fit collectively and might end up with a room that’s overcrowded or uneven. Instead, make a list of each room and their respective measurements. You can also map out a design of where you’d like certain pieces to go.
Don’t shop in a rush. Do take your time.
If you shop for furniture in a rush, there’s a chance you’ll have regrets once the furniture makes it way home. You want to make sure you have a couple of hours dedicated to testing out sofas, beds, and recliners, as well as time to simply walk around browsing. Spend time asking questions about material, styles, and durability. If you’re planning on financing the furniture, this also gives you plenty of time to accurately review the plan.
Don’t make decisions alone. Do consider the input of your family.
When shopping for furniture, it’s important to consider each member of the family’s opinion. While it may be impossible to entirely agree on styles, coming to a cohesive agreement will be beneficial for the household in the long term. If you have children, it’s also important to set a precedent of whether they’ll be allowed to eat on the sofa or if jumping on the bed is against the rules.
Don’t go in without a plan. Do create a list of desired pieces and styles.
Going in with a blank slate can go one of two ways: you leave with everything you wanted or you’re not sure why you bought what you bought but hope it all works out. The latter scenario is one you’ll want to avoid. Instead, spend time deciding what materials and colors you desire, as well as the ones you don’t. The shopping experience will go smoother than you imagined. You’ll also be happier with the furniture you select.
