Simple Tips for Buying New Home Furniture

When buying new furniture, it’s best to take your time and do a bit of research and planning beforehand. If you rush your decision or go in blindly, you can end up purchasing an item that doesn’t sufficiently meet your needs. Learn more about some of the furniture buying basics that will help ensure your furniture shopping process is simple and stress-free.

Buying a New Sofa or Sofa Set

When selecting a new sofa, one of the key things to consider is how your sofa will be used. For example, will you be using your sofa in a formal living room or a casual family room? Making that distinction will help you determine which style and materials will work best. For example, fabric sofas have a soft and cozy feel that’s perfect for napping and lounging, while leather and DuraBlend sofas are better suited for more formal settings.

It is also crucial that you know the exact size of your living room, which will help you judge whether a loveseat, a stationary sofa, or a sectional sofa is the right fit for your space. Fortunately, At Kensington Furniture, we have hundreds of sofas available in a wide range of sizes and styles, making it easy to find one that meets your needs.

Buying a New Bed

The average person spends about one third of their life in bed, so take time to select a bed that you truly love. When it comes to choosing a bed style, consider whether you prefer the ornate decorations of traditional furniture or the streamlined simplicity of contemporary design. From traditional poster beds and sleigh beds to contemporary storage beds—our home furniture store has it all. Since your bed will serve as the focal point of your bedroom, choose one that is distinctive, and expresses your person style.

Size is an important consideration when choosing a bed as well. We have beds for sale in five sizes, and knowing how each one differs will ensure you choose a bed that delivers the space and comfort you deserve. Twin beds and Full beds provide ample space for single sleepers, while Queen beds and King beds are the most popular bed sizes for couples. Looking for an exceptionally spacious option? Purchase a luxurious California King bed that has dimensions of 72”x84.”
