How to choose furniture for your home in 5 easy steps

Posted in:

In this day and age, when there is no shortage of options at our fingertips, it can be difficult to choose which furniture option will work best for you. But don’t worry! I have some tricks that should help narrow your search process so all the pieces fit properly together like they were made just for you.

Step 1

Make a list and define your requirements

What pieces are you looking to purchase? What are the requirements, and does it have to be a specific size? Having a list will help you focus on finding items that meet that criteria and nothing else.

Step 2

Your lifestyle needs

If you have kids or pets, you might want to rethink certain types of products that are just not functional for your day-to-day needs. That glass coffee table or leather may seem incredible now but may not be practical in the long run.

Step 3

Decide what’s most important

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither will be your home. Most of our projects with clients take on average 4-8 months. Think about which items are most important for you to purchase now and slowly build your room(s).

Step 4


Furniture can be expensive, so it’s important to set a budget before you start shopping. This way, you won’t end up spending more than you can afford and you’ll be able to stay within your target range.

Step 5

Pick your top 3

Narrowing in on your top 3 choices and re-evaluating them with a discerning eye? Do they meet all the items above? Yes or no?

I hope that you now have a better understanding of how to find the right pieces for your home. Remember, it’s important to take your time and not rush the process; after all, this is something you’ll live with for a long time!
