Living Room Makeovers 101
Giving Your Living Room a New Look? That’s great! It is always exciting to update your home and get a fresh look. Sometimes you just need to bring a little variety and change into the house. Here is everything you need to know about re-decorating your living room, from your first store visit to furniture removal.
Shopping For New Furniture
You’re tired of seeing the same old furniture every day for years now. You and your family have made the decision to finally replace it. But, with what? Furnishing a living room can be fun, but it can also be difficult if you don’t know where to start. Before shopping for new furniture, you need to be prepared. Here are a few things you must have ready before you start shopping for your new furniture:
- Budget: Determine how much you are willing to spend on new furniture before you ever step foot in a store. Have a conversation with your spouse or anyone else involved in the purchasing decision to decide what price point you need to stay below. This makes it easier to eliminate furniture more quickly while shopping and enables sales associates and consultants to better help you find the perfect furniture for your budget.
- Mobile Pictures: Take lots of pictures of your living room before you go shopping. While shopping, you may want to try to visualize what a given piece of furniture would look like in your space. If you have several pictures of your living room space from different angles, this will help you imagine how things would look in that room.
- Measurements: This might not be applicable to your furniture needs, but if you are furnishing a tight space you need to know exactly what you’re working with. Imagine how upsetting and frustrating it would be to look forward to your new sofa, for instance, and on the delivery day it is just slightly too wide to function in your living room. Avoid that possibility by coming prepared to stores with measurements in hand.
- Ideas: Sometimes you don’t know what you want until you see it in the store. However, it is helpful to have a general idea of what you’re looking for. Are you simply replacing the couch or do you need floor lamps and end tables, too? What do you want to fill the center of the room, an ottoman or a coffee table? Do you know what kind of wood or materials you’d like your furniture to be composed of? If you need to furnish an entire living room, you will be overwhelmed if you start shopping without a list of what you need and an idea of what preferences you may have.
Now that you know how to be a prepared furniture shopper, you’re ready to make your purchase. On delivery day, you’re going to want enough room to place your new furniture. That means you need to get rid of what is currently in its place. Furniture removal might be the most daunting part of this whole experience? How are you going to get these heavy items out of your home and where are you going to take them? Luckily, Junk Pros NY offers convenient and affordable furniture removal to meet this need.
