What to Bring with You When You Shop for New Dining Furniture

Last updated 6 years ago

In the interest of your time and shopping experience, you should take a few things along with you when shopping for new dining room furniture. These items include color samples, fabric samples, pictures, and measurements. Read on to learn how these items can help simplify and streamline your shopping experience.

Paint or Wallpaper Samples

Bring samples of the colors used on your dining room walls. This helps you get an idea of how the furnishings will look inside the room. Take a wall paint sample or wallpaper sample with you to compare the color of the wall with the items you’re interested in.

Drapery and Fabric Samples

Take some samples of curtains and draperies while furniture shopping to ensure that the new dining furniture matches the window treatments. If you have upholstered furniture in the dining room, take a fabric swatch of that upholstery. Not everyone has a fabric swatch handy, so you could bring a cushion or pillow with the same fabric base, if available.

Pictures of the Room

Bring pictures of the dining room along with you to visualize prospective dining furniture in the room. You can print out a copy of the photo, but you can also bring a disc or thumb drive along with you as the furniture salesperson may want to look at the room on a showroom computer.

Room Size Information

Perhaps one of the most important things to bring with you is information regarding the size of your dining room. This ensures that the pieces you’re looking at will fit comfortably in the room. After all, you don’t want to come home with a dining table that doesn’t fit or takes up too much space in the room.
