A stress-free furniture shopping guide!

Moving into a new space or deciding to freshen up the one you live in? It’s all fun until the pressure starts to take over and what can be an exciting thing can suddenly feel like being on a rollercoaster of stress. But it doesn’t have to be! Here are all the ways you can make sure that furniture shopping is an overall enjoyable experience for you and your loved ones.

 

  1. Mindset Matters: Before you jump into the process of searching, comparing, selecting, and purchasing, ask yourself these few questions. What is the vision I have for my space? What colors can I visualize this place being filled with? How do I want this space to make me feel when my guests and I enter it? Once you have all these answers, you’ll be clear on making better selections.

 

  1. A Creative Moodboard: The internet is a wonderful place when it comes to seeking a bit of inspiration. With your dream colors in mind, do some research to find pictures and mood boards for your place. Pinterest would be perfect to give you endless options to choose from that will not only give you great ideas on the kind of pieces you want to buy, but also on the best way to fit them in your space.

  1. Budget saves the day: Making a budget plan for furniture shopping will definitely help you ease a lot of stress as you will be able to allocate a certain budget to a certain furniture piece. This way you can also be able to keep a track of how flexible you can be when it comes to spending.

  1. Don’t set deadlines: Shopping for furniture can turn into a dreadful chore the second you put a deadline to it. Oh, I love these two tables and I can’t seem to choose but I must get it straight away!! (Wrong!) When you’re buying furniture, give yourself enough time to look at a variety of different options, compare pricing, colors and materials! Take pictures and get a friend’s opinion, take your time to think about it and come back the next day when you’ve had enough time to think. Sometimes adding a deadline can add unnecessary pressure which will make you end up buying something you might not even like.

 

  1. Avail the opportunity: Many furniture stores offer free interior design consultation services and even assist with product consultation. Make sure to ask around as it’s helpful to get an expert’s advice on what would be the best thing for your space. A quick discussion would also be able to give you some inspiring direction!
