What’s your style? Finding a way to reflect that in your home can send you searching through Pinterest, streaming the latest HGTV special or shopping store to store to find one that speaks to you in your price range.
Or, you could browse a world of styles, sizes, materials and colours in one location!
From Vintage Casual, Traditional, Contemporary and anything in between “there’s always something for every budget, and something for every taste,” says Nichole Dansie, from Ashley HomeStore in Abbotsford. “Whether you’re moving out for the first time and you’re looking for that starter sofa or you’re decorating your dream home, you’ll find the styles that you love here.”
Where others source from outside manufacturers, Ashley HomeStore is a complete design-manufacture business, meaning you won’t find other brands on the showroom floor. What you will find is a wide selection of furnishings to suit just about every home and every style.
While the company’s North American presence allows for savings that only larger-scale manufacturing affords, the local, family-owned Fraser Valley stores serving Abbotsford, Langley and Coquitlam demonstrate the value of neighbours helping neighbours.
“I think one of the best qualities our HomeStores offer is that we’re very focused on your experience. That means we’re here to work with you to answer any questions you have – before or after you leave the store,” Dansie says.
TIPS FROM ASHLEY HOMESTORE
- Measure! Before you leave the house, break out that measuring tape. “Measurements are very important, not only for the space it’s going into, but also your doorways, hallways, stairwells and elevator,” Dansie points out. The last thing you want is to LOVE that 90-inch couch but find your elevator is only 86” tall.
- Consider your colours. Are you trying to match a particular paint sample or floor colour? “I find a lot of people will bring in a piece of flooring with them. One person even brought a piece of drywall painted with their wall colour,” Dansie says. “And remember, lighting is so important, but it can be difficult to get a clear reflection of that under showroom lights. We’ll often suggest people take a pillow cushion outside to the natural light to get a better idea of the true colour.”
In addition to in-home delivery and set-up, with extensive health and safety protocols in place, Ashley HomeStore also offers 1 year of in-home service with their delivery. Products also include a one-year manufacturer’s warranty, with additional options available.
