4 key questions to ask before you start your furniture shopping journey.

Along with our homes and our vehicles, a furniture purchase is one of the 3 largest purchases we make in our lifetime.

Since you will likely be living with your new furniture for years to come, it pays to pause and ask yourself a few questions before you shop. With that in mind, here is how to ensure you select pieces you will love today and for many years to come.

  1. What is your style? These questions may be hard to answer for many of us. We often think that everything has to match and that having a unique design is too much. However, we no longer need to be tied to this misconception. Here at Ashley we love taking pieces from all the different lifestyles and mixing them together. When you’re furniture shopping it’s important to keep an open mind, BUT! Always remember it is OK TO BE DIFFERENT.
  2. What is your space like? MEASURE! MEASURE! MEASURE! Knowing your space before you shop is crucial to a good furniture shopping experience from purchasing to the day you get delivery. There is nothing like waiting for your furniture to arrive only to have it not fit. Also always consider what kind of lighting you have and how that may affect what you put in your space. What is already in the room? If you are working around existing furniture consider how they will look with your new additions.
  3. How will you use the piece or pieces? Proper use and care go along long way in maintaining the longevity of any piece. Will this be an everyday item or something that is seldom used? Is your plan to have this just for a short time or for a long while? This information will assist you with how you choose and budget for your new furniture.
  4. Who will be using your space? Do you have pets? Do you have children? Do you entertain a lot? These things can make it hard to keep your furniture looking like new. Luckily all of our upholstery products are made with a polyester blend material that is super easy to clean. We also offer a 5 year Accidental Protection Plan. Set it and forget it and if you have an accident there is someone to help just a phone a call away.
