Choosing Your Furniture Before Your Furnishings

Quite often, when we are decorating, or refurnishing our home, many of us will purchase our soft furnishings, and choose our homes, colour schemes, before we start to look at the types of furniture available. Here are a few good reasons why it may be a better choice to look at furniture first.

In the store we have a wide range of sofas, beds, and dining room tables, but colour choices are limited. We often hear from the customers that they find it difficult to choose a particular model as the colour available won’t match the carpet they have brought, a sofa will clash with the curtains they have for example.

Furniture is one of the bigger purchases we have to make, and as I just mentioned often colours are not in abundance. Wallpaper, paint, curtains, and carpets have a large selection to choose from when it comes to different shades.

Let us take the living room and think of how this problem might face us. When a room is empty it can be quite challenging to picture what it might look like once we begin filling it with furniture. So in our excitement we start working out the types of flooring we might like, and the what colour the walls should be. If you were to think ahead, and make a decision on where the sofas will go, and the type of tv unit you might like, then your next shop should be the furniture shop.

Sofas are an essential item in the living room, and they have more than one use. Not only are they for sitting on, making it important to get all the deciding factors right, they are a main feature in your living room. So you like the style, the comfort, and the price is right, but the colour will not fit into the patterns you have chose. This can be a problem, as you are now choosing your sofa by the colours available, missing out on two very important factors.

This problem will follow you through out your newly furnished home, and as is often the case, you will realise once it is too late. I hope you have found this article useful, and when you come into the shop all of our staff will be happy to show you all the colours available on our products, and try to give you information, and guidance with their expert advice on the furniture in the store.
