Buying a new home can be an exhilarating time for first-time home buyers. Filling it with what was formerly in the old apartment or rented house can seem cost-effective. Another thought might revolve around the idea that using the old furniture can make the new place look and feel more like home almost immediately. There are reasons why buying new furniture can work out better in the long run, however.
Some pieces of furniture, even well-built ones by major, well-known companies, find themselves placed on safety recall lists. Such has been the case with numerous cribs and reclining chairs. Both of these standard furniture items have been involved in the deaths of several children over the last few years. Because of these tragedies, many of them have also been listed as unlawful to resell or pass on to others as free ‘starters’ or gifts.
Also, furniture that your family has used over the years might develop stains and smells that you could do without moving into your new home with your family. Cracker crumbs, sticky residues, and other things that quickly raises the ‘ick’ factor all get eliminated when you move new furniture in a new home – you take none of that with you.
Getting the same color scheme, or a new one, is much easier when pieces come from a small, family-owned store like this furniture store in Gilbert, AZ, where customers can choose the fabrics as well as the designs. Your home no longer needs to look like a series of hodge-podge rooms, but instead can look exactly how you want it to look.
Another plus on buying from a smaller-scale store is that the payment terms are much more reasonable. The staff members are more in tune with the varied needs of their customers only because they have a great deal of practice doing just that – listening to their customers and learning what works for them in their homes, and also what is lacking in their homes. Filling in those missing gaps can make your home so much more comfortable and livable, and without much more effort than you already intend on putting into moving in and decorating your new home.
