Last updated 6 years ago

Have you ever bought furniture, only to get it home and realize it doesn't fit in the room or doesn't match your other furniture like you thought it would? Avoid these situations by following these tips for buying furniture!

Take Measurements of Rooms
The dimensions of each room, including the height from floor to ceiling, can come in very handy when picking out your new furniture. Be sure to measure the height and width of any doorways, as well. You may be able to pre-assemble some of the furniture in a larger area of the home before moving it into the intended room.

Bring Pictures of Your Home
Take a few pictures of each room in your home that you're intending to furnish. Be sure to capture the room from different angles, so the furniture salesperson can see what other furniture is in the room and how new furniture can be incorporated easily. Even if you're intending to throw out old furniture, go ahead and take pictures of the rooms with the existing furniture still in place. This strategy can help the salesperson gauge the dimensions of the room, in case you forget to bring the measurements.

When you come to Casual Dining & Bar Stools, your furniture sales representative will ask you questions about the dimensions of your rooms and any other furniture that will stay in the room. Having this information with you will help us help you! You'll save time and get the best furniture for your home.
