After a home and a car, your furniture is likely to be the items in your home on which you spend the most money. Therefore, when you’ve just moved into a new home, it’s important to make sure you’re doing your due diligence when researching available options and selecting furniture that will work well for your new space.
Sometimes it’s just as important to know what not to do when buying furniture as it is to know what to do. With this in mind, here are a few mistakes people commonly make when purchasing home furniture in Hilo, HI and how you can avoid them.
Rushing through the process
Far too many people rush through the furniture buying process in the hopes of getting through it as quickly as possible. Considering how much money you’re putting into your furniture, you shouldn’t make it an impulse decision. If you head out to a furniture store and don’t see something that ticks all the boxes of what you’re looking for, there’s nothing pressuring you to make a purchase that day. And if you do come across a piece of furniture that you think you like but aren’t fully ready to commit, walk away and wait a day to think it through more carefully. There’s no need to rush—that’s a great way to end up with a furniture purchase you’re not wild about.
Too many people walk into a furniture store without a set budget in mind. You need to be completely sure of the maximum amount of money you’re willing to spend on your furniture purchase. Be sure to have a hard limit set ahead of time so you don’t end up accidentally spending more than you intended.
Not coordinating with other furniture
You should spend some time considering how your furniture will complement the other furniture and décor you already have in your home. Try to choose styles that work well together, as well as colors. You can ask salespeople for a color swatch to take home with you to see how the color will work in your home with your other furniture. Also take pictures of your furniture and your room to refer to while you’re in the store—that will really help you out.
You should always know exactly how much room you have to work with in the space where the furniture will be placed. You may have heard of the rule “measure twice, cut once” when it comes to woodworking. With furniture buying, you can never measure too many times before you make your purchase. Measure the space you’re working with, measure the furniture you currently have there and bring a tape measure to measure what’s in the store. It pays to know exactly what you’re working with so there are no surprises when you bring your new furniture home.
