Furniture can be a very big investment when buying a home. What furniture do you really need to live comfortably in your new home? Are there some things that you can live without for a while until you are settled in and get what you really need? Working as a real estate agent for the past twenty years, I have helped a lot of families get settled into their new places. This blog will show you what you probably want to have when you first move into a house and what you can live without for a few months as you get settled in.
If you've had the same furniture for a while, it's time to make a change. Unfortunately, it's not always easy to commit to investing in new furniture. This is particularly true if you think that your current furniture is still doing the job, or you have other items on your list of must-have's. Take a look at the list below. If you're dealing with any of the issues described there, it's time to invest in new furniture for your home.
Yours is Downright Uncomfortable
If you avoid sitting on your furniture because it's downright uncomfortable, it's time to start shopping. Your couches might have been comfortable when they were brand-new, but that might have changed once those springs started to give way, or the cushions began to sag. If your couches have seen better days, and it's a pain to sit on, do yourself a favor; invest new furniture.
You're Remodeling Your Home
If you're in the process of remodeling your home, make sure you add new furniture. Your old furniture might have gone well with the current style, but now that you're making changes, it might not be a good design choice. Instead of trying to work around your current furniture, wipe the slate clean and purchase new furniture to go with the new look.
You're Going Through Major Life Changes
If you're going through some major life changes, it's time to purchase new furniture. Life changes are the perfect reason to give your home a whole new look. Some of those life changes include marriage, divorce, birth of a new baby, or the fact that you're finally an empty-nester. Life changes create unique situations where changing the furniture can provide you with a whole new outlook on life. Not only that, but if you're finally an empty-nester, you can get rid of the furniture that's been stained and destroyed by years of family use. If you're getting a divorce, you can start fresh with furniture that was never used by your ex.
Out-of-Town Guests Are Arriving
If you've got out-of-town guests coming in for a stay, it's time to take a close look at your current furniture. If your furniture is stained, worn-out, or just looks old and out-dated, make a change before your guests arrive. That way, everything will look fresh and new. If you're not sure where to start for your out-of-town guests; start with new mattresses in the guest bedroom. They'll appreciate the added comfort.
