Read This Before you Start Furniture Shopping!
For a relatively small area, there is no shortage of places to buy furniture in Reno-Tahoe. From folks hunting for discounts to those looking for a specific style or something truly one a kind, there’s a shop for that around here. But before you head to the nearest chain, take a minute to stop and consider what you’re after. You may find that a boutique is a much better option. Save yourself time and gas money by clarifying your furniture needs first. Here’s how.
- What kind of furniture do I want?
- What’s my price point?
- What’s more important – price, style or convenience?
- Is this a forever piece, or just something temporary?
It’s surprising what information your answers will reveal. For example, let’s say you read those questions and your answer is something like the following: I need a new bed, I don’t want to spend more than $500, but I’m willing to spend a little more to get something that works with the other furniture in the space, and I don’t foresee buying another bed anytime soon so I want this one to be really special.
By clarifying both the budget and the fact that you’re on the hunt for something you’ll have for a long time, you’ve already narrowed your search. Discount furniture chains may have something in your price point, but for something truly special, it’s worth your time to shop the local boutiques.
