How to find the Best Furniture for Your Home

For Your First Home

You’re the king of your own castle now! You’re a first-time homebuyer, and there are a few things you should know when you set out to find furniture for your home.

First, your home furniture budget is important, but spreading your home furniture purchases out over time isn’t a bad thing. Some pieces of furniture are hard to live without. Rank your furnishings by priority. The first things you’ll typically include a bed, sofa and kitchen table. However, you may feel perfectly comfortable opting to eat on your sofa instead of purchasing a kitchen or dinette table for a while. Your home furniture priorities are totally unique to you. Sit down a have a chat with the family or friends living with you. Figure out exactly what furniture you need for your home, then start checking off your list.

Second, consider your furnishing needs, but make them what you want. If you’re only purchasing certain pieces of home furniture, those pieces should stand out, be a little fun and make you happy to be living in your new home even though it’s minimalistic! Set out to find furniture that can stand on its own or in a crowd. (You’ll collect home furniture faster than you think!)

 

For the Middle of the Road

It’s time to upgrade. Gone are the days of build-it-yourself home furniture. Now, you’re ready to find furniture for your home that’s customized just for you! Your budget has grown a bit and your wallet has a little extra discretionary income.

When you’re looking to find furniture, consider how often you’ll use each piece of furniture and if there are any specific home design issues your furniture could address. You have choices, but you also have a few more requirements for your furniture. Maybe you need to find furniture that will accommodate your children or pets. Home furniture with performance fabric, added details or a few more cushions may be on your furniture shopping list.

Celebrate! Your home furniture budget has room to breathe! Consider these furniture purchases investment pieces. You’ll probably want to spend a little more money on home furniture this time around, but possibly unlike the furniture for your first home, it will be of heirloom quality. It will be furniture that you’ll want to pass down to your kids.

 

For Downsizing Your Home

One day you need to find furniture for your firstborn’s nursery, the next your children have moved out and you’re looking for a smaller home. We don’t know how it happened, but we know how to help you find furniture for your home.

Now that your children have flown the coop, the only people you’ll have to worry about soiling your new furniture will be yourselves! Performance fabrics for your upholstery pieces will still reign supreme. There may be fewer ketchup stains, but the possibility of wine and soda stains stays the same. However, some home furniture considerations will change. Scale is often one of the biggest changes to consider. When you’re seeking to find furniture for your smaller space, be sure to consider the amount and the size of the furniture you choose. A good rule of thumb is to layer each room from the ground up, starting with an appropriately sized rug.

Your new home furniture may still need to host a crowd depending on how often you intend to host friends and family. You’ll still want to consider how many people you need to fit on your sofa and around your kitchen or dining room table. If your house isn’t the holiday gathering zone, you may want to ditch the kitchen table and stick with bar stools around a kitchen island.
