The holiday season is quickly approaching, and it’s always a good idea to get started early when shopping for the people you love. Whether you’re looking for a gift for someone special or you wish to treat yourself this holiday season (because hey, a little self-love never hurt anyone), consider purchasing a new piece of high-quality, handcrafted furniture in Bucks County from us here at Amish Furniture of Bristol.
Before you get started, though, check out our list of the most important things to consider when buying new furniture:
Of course, you’ll want to find something that will look beautiful in your home, but remember that it’s utmost important to get furniture that will fit your (or your loved one’s) ergonomic requirements. For example, if you sit for long periods in the dining room, then you’ll need to find a chair that will stay comfortable for you throughout the entire time span.
Check the Dimensions of Everything
Make sure you check the dimensions of the room you’re putting the piece of furniture in as well as the furniture itself. If you have space for it, you’ll also need to ask yourself how you’ll be transporting it. Will it fit in your car? Will it fit in your doorframe to get into the house? Those are questions you need to find the answers to before making the purchase. Remember: We can also create custom furniture for people throughout Bucks County, PA, and the surrounding areas, if needed.
Balance the Shapes in the Room
It’s easy to get a pleasing mix of furniture pieces in a room by varying their basic shapes. Some interior designers count the number of rectangles, diamonds, and circles in a space to make sure one shape isn’t overly dominant. Then, they try to balance out the shapes. For example, if you have a round lampshade and a round mirror above your fireplace, you might want to try a rectangular coffee table to balance the shapes.
