The street in front of your house is almost back to normal. After your niece, her husband and two young boys lived with you for three and half weeks while they were waiting to close on their house, things around your home are calming down. You can use the restroom and the shower without an unexpected visitor popping in, getting out of your driveway is more convenient, and the washer, dryer, and dishwashing machine are no longer having to run around the clock. Heck, with the house back to only four people instead of eight you can even all sit in the living room together when you want to watch a show. And while the fact that the refrigerator now has room for all of the food your family likes, the fact that you no longer have all of the moving trailers and large trucks away from the front of your house means that even the neighbors can tell that your house has calmed down.
Moving Is a Perfect Opportunity to Redecorate Your Living Spaces
For her part, your niece is having a great time getting her house the way she wants it. With a combination of a few family heirloom pieces and some new boutique home furniture items, she is creating a space that is just what she wants. Her new home is bigger and she has an opportunity to finally splurge on some of the boutique home furniture pieces that will help her add color to several of her rooms, while at the same time provide kid friendly spaces that will work.
Any time you get a chance to purchase a new set of furniture or move your old pieces into a new space, it is important to realize that there are many kinds of home furnishing options available today. From small shops that feature vintage decor items to larger showrooms that offer luxury furniture pieces, there are many kinds of high end pieces that might be just what you are looking for. On the other end of the spectrum, there are also less expensive kitchen, living room, and bedroom furniture options as well.
Consider some of these facts and figures about the home furnishings industries and the impact that they have on the spaces where we live and the economy of the nation:
- As evidence by the 57% of those surveyed by Furniture Today expressed a preference for vintage pieces, vintage furniture continues to be a popular option among many U.S. consumers.
- Nine out of the top 10 furniture retailers are American companies, so many people find comfort in knowing that the U.S. furniture market is led by domestic organizations.
- Boutique home furniture are one of the options buyers consider when they are contributing to the fact that the average U.S. consumer is willing to spend $2,200 on a living room redecoration.
- Furniture and home furnishings stores generated $106.78 billion in sales in 2015.
Whether you are a fan of traditional styles of home furnishings or you are more interested in the latest and most popular boutique home furniture pieces, there are many sources for today’s consumers. The trick, of course, is being able to get what you want on time. Online furniture stores offer many delivery options that allow consumers a chance to get many of the items that they want within a couple of weeks of ordering. The only downfall, of course, is that these items are not often in a showroom where you can see what you are ordering in person before making a decision. The benefit, however, is that these online companies do not have the expense of real life showrooms to maintain, and that they are often able to pass these savings on to their customers.
It may come as no surprise that after a home and a car, furniture is typically the third most expensive thing people purchase. For this reason it is important to take the time to find the items that you want before you invest. The furnishings that you put in your home can help send a message to your visiting friends and family about the kind of tastes that you have. You can add color or sophistication, or both, depending on your choices.
