It’s hard enough to get your husband to talk about buying couches and end tables, much less get him even remotely interested in going out and buying it. And let’s face it; it’s not always a good time for the ladies either. The appeal of furniture store salesmen can be right up there with used car salesmen; sharks in the water. So before you head out to buy furnishings for a home office or the bedroom, read about what a good furniture and home interior store should have.
All in One
There are plenty of home furnishing stores that say they specialize in kid’s beds, oak dining sets, and mattresses only, and have strictly loads and loads of couches to choose from. The advertisers are so sure that this minimal selection will make your shopping easier. Not so! If you’re looking to furnish more than one room or perhaps need a dresser, a coffee table, and a desk all at one time, do you really have the time to go all over town to three different stores? No!
Find a store that has the ability to outfit all your rooms. Stores like these will even have full living room, bedroom, and home theater room sets all on display so you can see what the finished product will look like. You’ll also be able to find finishing touches like wall clocks, decorative vases, full length mirrors, and other details that will help make your house feel more like a home.
Before you head out to hit up every furniture store in Florida, call ahead and ask what their return policy is and what kind of warranties they offer on their products. The customer service person who answers the phone may not be able to give you the most accurate warranty information, so ask to speak with a sales manager or sales team lead.
