Choose the perfect style that matches your taste
Make sure you are comfortable with the look and style of your furniture. We all have different tastes from casual furniture, contemporary, country, traditional or eclectic. Be sure of what makes you comfortable by looking at the items around you. Notice the style of your current furniture, your wardrobe, your car, your magazines, favorite movies, etc. Follow your tastes and you will always feel more be comfortable.
Take note of your design preferences
What are your favorite colors, textures and patterns? Are you more partial to bold colors or pastels? Solids, stripes or plaids? Soft, light fabric covers or rich tapestries? Lighter woods or darker hardwoods? It’s best not to combine more than 2 or 3 of your favorite preferences. Keep within your preferences to make a winning combination.
Make a list of which rooms you want to add furniture and the specific items you need
Don’t forget to think about bedroom furniture, dining room furniture, living room furniture, children's furniture or entertainment centers. Prioritize the rooms and the furniture you want to add to your home before beginning your shopping. Focusing on specific items will help in narrowing down you choices and the time it takes to find the exact furniture to meet your needs.
Consider your lifestyle
Do you prefer a more formal or casual atmosphere at home? Do you have children? If so, what ages? Do you have pets? Are you planning to move soon? All of these factors contribute to the type and style of furniture you may want to buy today.
Start with the most important furniture and build around it
Always decide upon and buy the most important furniture first. It’s much easier to build around your main furniture. There is no need to try and furnish your entire home immediately. Once your primary pieces are placed you will notice the empty spaces and have a much better feel about what else would work in any specific room. You’ll also notice if certain existing pieces are worn or in need of replacement.
Make sure to pay the lowest prices to stay within your budget
Whatever your budget, your money will go much further if you pay the lowest possible price for your furniture selection. You can find furniture to meet all budget levels. Design Furnishings offers all our customers a 120% lowest price guarantee which helps to insure your budget does not get over extended.
Spend as much or as little time as you want
Whether you enjoy doing lots of research and browsing or refer to find it and buy it as quickly as possible, shopping for furniture online makes it easy either way.
The internet offers many valuable furniture resources
You can find many helpful resources online such as home programs, books, magazines, catalogs, websites and furniture show rooms to educate and provide inspiration. Create your own favorites folder and copy/paste interesting articles, pictures and helpful links.
There are many free services that can be very helpful
Even casual searching online will uncover many free services such as interior-design consulting, room-planning guides, product brochures, etc.
In the end, trust your own feelings
Buy what feels right to you. Don't be afraid to be bold or different. Remember: You are the one who will be living with your new furniture. No one knows what you want better than you do.
