Furniture Store Shopping Tips

Shopping at a quality fine furniture store is the best way to ensure the pieces you purchase are built to last. And with the vast selection of fine furnishings in numerous different styles, you’re sure to find furniture that’s perfect for your northern Utah home.

Most fine furniture stores, including Guild Hall Home Furnishings, have interior design consultants on staff who can assist you in making your furniture choices. But as you plan your next shopping trip, be sure to consider the following tips.

Measure Your Doorways and Rooms

Before you head to the furniture store, get the dimensions of every room you’re planning to furnish. Also, measure the doorway openings to ensure that the pieces you purchase can get to their chosen spots in your home.

Measure the Furnishings You Already Have

Are you planning on keeping any of the home furnishings you already have in place? If so, take their measurements. You may not want your coffee table to be taller than your sofa or your nightstand to be lower than the bed, and measuring the furniture you own can save you from an interior design dilemma.

Ask for Fabric Swatches and Samples

Whether you’re shopping for a new loveseat, sectional, accent chair, ottoman or any other upholstered fine furniture, ask for fabric samples. With swatches in hand, you’ll be able to look at how each option goes with your wall color, carpet and existing home furnishings before making a purchase.

Consider Customized Fine Furnishings

Many home furnishings stores, like Guild Hall, offer the opportunity to customize pieces to meet your specific needs. With made-to-order fine furnishings, you can solve interior design problems and create furniture that reflects your individual style. And though it may seem surprising, custom pieces can be quite affordable – the price is comparable to ready-made fine furnishings found on the furniture store showroom floor.

Take Your Time Shopping for Furniture

Plan your furniture store shopping trip for a day when you have plenty of free time. The showroom will contain a huge assortment of fine furnishings spread across an immense area – here at Guild Hall Home Furnishings, we have 16,000 square feet of high-quality fine furnishings.
