How To Choose The Right Furniture
Now that you know the different stores to check out for affordable furniture, you may be wondering: how would I know what to get? You may be asking, do I shop by brand name? Crawl through every listing on a furniture store’s website? Or do I search by colour?
Aside from the information you need to base your purchase off – such as dimensions, price, and whether you need a delivery made or not, here are some considerations to make when adding a new piece of furniture into your space:
1. Figure out the theme of your room.
Having a good understanding of your space on a micro room level and a macro “house” level can create cohesiveness between pieces of existing furniture and those that you plan to buy.
We are fans of taking the time to observe the room and figure out how we can make it lively, or organized. Perhaps new shelves are a good idea, or cabinets or media centers with storage compartments are a good idea. Or, are you planning on adding plants later? Perhaps you should look at how your current decor and future decor would exist in your space.
2. Decide on a colour scheme.
You may already have an idea about the colours you want to work with for your space. If you live in a smaller space, bright walls and furniture will make your space seem less restrictive. Alternatively. if you have a larger space to fill and have a darker wall colour, going completely dark with your furniture may not be the best idea. It may seem like it – but consider creating contrast in your space. For example, dark blue walls and white dressers, or light coloured walls and dark mahogany cabinets.
3. Decide on what impression your room should have.
Sometimes finding the right furniture can come down to the trims, accents, patterns, and make of the furniture itself. For example, are most of your existing furniture rigid and modular? Perhaps you can add some ‘curves’ to your furniture with a rounded side table to even out all the rough edges. Or, if you have a lot of glass furniture, perhaps rounding the surfaces out with wood cabinets could keep your place from looking sterile.
Furniture Shopping: A Checklist
- List all the rooms in your apartment suite or house and what furniture is missing
- Order the missing pieces from high importance to low. You can rank the furniture by importance to guests if you have guests over often, utility, or just for aesthetic appeal.
- Write beside your list the approximate prices you’d like to spend on each furniture.
- Alternatively, look through your list and decide on a budget for each furniture category – such as cabinets, beds, shelves, etc.
- On the same sheet, measure the maximum dimensions you can have
Now, armed with the list, you can easily remember what you are trying to buy at a furniture store, the dimensions of the ideal furniture, its importance to you, and the price you’re willing to pay.
