Shopping for new furniture can feel like a pretty daunting task for some of us. Whether it’s the idea of trying to match new furniture with your existing furniture, dropping some cash, or searching for that perfect sofa, there are many reasons why you may be putting it off!
At Wallaroo’s, we think shopping for new furniture should be a fun, stress-free experience, and we do everything we can to make sure it’s as painless as possible! Keep reading to hear our Dos and Don’ts of Furniture Shopping tips.
DO measure your space
Measuring your space before heading to your local Wallaroo’s will save you time in the long run! Know how big or small of a sofa you need will make the decision much easier, and will cut out the guess work.
DO know your style
Take into account your existing furniture and decide if you want to stick with the same style or branch out. If you love the look of your current home decor, look for a variety of textures, patterns and complimentary shades when shopping for furniture. A room that’s too matchy matchy isn’t what you want, but clashing pieces isn’t ideal either! Each piece should compliment the next. If your current home style isn’t your vibe anymore, then this next part is easy! Stop by your local Wallaroo’s and let us help you find what you’re looking for!
DO test out the product!
Whether it’s a sofa or a mattress, sit on it, lay on it, relax like you would if it was in your own home. Don’t be shy about testing the product as if it was yours. This is a piece that could be in your home someday, and it’s never fun finding out later that the comfort level isn’t your preference.
DO ask questions!
Be sure to ask your sales associate plenty of questions, that’s what we’re here for!
DON’T shop online
If you limit your shopping to only online, you’ll never get to try out the furniture before buying. Ending up with a rock hard sofa after you spent all that money on it would be super disappointing. Be sure to stop by your local Wallaroo’s to find the best selection of furniture out there!
DON’T only follow the trends
Sure trendy furniture is cool in the moment, but it often ends up phasing out of style before too long, and you might wish you had gone for something more timeless.
DON’T let price scare you off
Furniture is an investment, and while we take special care to price our pieces fairly and offer furniture for all types of budgets, we know that sometimes the price tags can be intimidating. We offer financing options to help alleviate the burden of up front prices paid-in full.
DON’T be shy
Ask as many questions as you want, stop by as many times as you want, try out as many different options as you want! In the end you have to be happy with your decision, so don’t feel like you’re bothering your sales associate, that would never happen! We’re only here to help YOU!
