Furnishing Your New Home During Building
High Point Furniture Shopping Tours has been in the new home furnishing industry for years. We understand homeowners who are buying for the first time, building for the first time, or having a custom home built just for them. We’ve put together a few tips to help make the new home build a little easier and a lot more fun!
Many homebuyers start looking to furnish their new build home several months before move-in.
This is because shipping, manufacturing, and other furniture industry processes can take a while depending on where you’re shopping and your personal taste in brands. By getting ahead of the curve, you can play it smart and have your furniture delivered roughly around the same time as you plan to move into your new construction home.
Start with the most “important” rooms first.
Consider where you spend the most amount of time in your home, where you entertain guests, and where you like to relax. Usually, the living room, kitchen, master bedroom, and bathrooms are great places to start. Once you figure out which rooms are the most important to you, you can start building out a list to furnish. High Point Furniture Shopping Tours can help you streamline the furnishing process by scheduling appointments with showrooms, furniture stores, antique shops, and other furnishing storefronts.
When you’re furnishing a new home build, it’s important to know the specifications of each room. This will come in handy when we’re evaluating furniture and speaking with associates to find the right pieces that will best fit your spaces. The more information you have about your new construction home the better!
Shopping online or using catalogs can lead to regret later on.
Finding new pieces online can be a great way to hone your taste and hunt for innovative ideas. However, seeing furniture and home decor in person is imperative for making the right decision. Getting a feel for material and style in a showroom can help you visualize the finished space and ensure it’s cohesive.
Invest in the staple pieces.
Your investment pieces are the ones you’re going to use the most. Furniture like sofas or couches, beds, and other larger pieces make a statement. It’s important to invest in these to optimize your budget, get long-lasting and quality furniture, and avoid buyers’ remorse in the future.
