Here is a quick easy how to guide to purchasing furniture for your home.
1. DEVELOP AND IDEA AND DESIGN VISION
Think about styles, colors, fabrics, textures, and costs. Use Pinterest, Houzz, Instagram, or other inspiration sources to
refine your idea. Make a board to keep your vision in one place. 2. MEASURE & DOCUMENT
Measure the room dimensions. Any furniture you are going should be documented.
Don’t forget windows and doors.
3. DRAW UP YOUR MEASUREMENTS
Use graph paper to layout the drawing as measured.
Draw to scale and make scale furniture cut outs to place with the room layout.
4. DEVELOP A PLAN
Write down the items you need, desired dimensions, and proposed budget for each.
Double check the idea with real world data.
5. GO SHOPPING!
Take your shopping list and have fun selecting all of your new furniture.
Don’t go rogue and look for quality.
Take that plan, place your new items where your design vision said would look best.
Style the space with a few decor items and plants.
Invite over friends,
throw a party, or just relax. Your well thought out action plan is finished and worth enjoying.
