Tips for helping you to choose the perfect furniture for your home.

The Furniture Union has a team of experienced professionals who can advise you on what furniture and furnishings will best suit your home and budget.  We can guide you through the complicated process of making sure everything looks and feels right for every room. 

Here are some guidelines to help you through the process of selecting the right furniture!

 

-      Think about the room functionality and dynamic

The first thing you should think of when you are selecting furniture for any room is what the room’s function is and who will be using it?  For example, a guest bedroom might be very different to the master bedroom in style and functionality.  Will the room need to be child friendly?  Try to picture yourself in each room and how it would best work for you.

 

-      Get inspiration from interior design magazines and articles

Sometimes it’s hard to find some good inspiration when picking furniture. Do a bit of research to see what current styles, colours and finishes are popular and then start to narrow it down to fit your own tastes.  Alternatively, try and find some ideas in other design work or projects.   And if you want to see what recent interiors The Furniture Union has been working on, just check out our latest project on thefurnitureunion.com/overview/ and maybe you will get some inspiration.

 

-      Make a plan / take measurements

Don’t make the mistake of buying furniture and then finding it doesn’t quite fit.  Take accurate measurements and design your own layout using free hand sketches or cut outs of the furniture floor dimensions to experiment with.  But if this sounds not a bit too complicated why not ask one of our designers to come and measure up the room and do the design and layout for you. They can even provide a 3D visual of your room with its furniture in place - and this way you’ll know that the furniture you have chosen will fit.

 

-      Invest in good quality products

Selecting good quality furniture and furnishing can be expensive, but don’t panic!   Choosing the right furniture is an important investment.  Choosing high quality furniture will save you money in the long run.  It will last longer and withstand years of wear and tear.
