Whether you’ve just bought a new home or have decided to redecorate, the new year is a great time to shop for new furniture. But which pieces should you buy? Try these furniture shopping tips from the pros.
Do your prep work
Decide in advance what your needs and style are. If you have frequent dinner parties, you’ll probably want to invest in a beautiful dining table. If you love mid-century modern, stick to pieces that complement your style. And no matter what you do, make sure you measure your space to avoid buying a piece that won’t fit!
Follow the map
It’s a good idea to map out exactly how you want a room to look, including furniture, rugs, window treatments and lighting. You don’t need to select particular pieces at this stage, but having a clear idea of how you want each room to look will keep your shopping on track.
Comfort is key
When developing a budget for furniture shopping, invest the most in the pieces you’ll use the most frequently. For example, we recommend buying the best, comfiest sofa you can afford.
