Make sure that you create for yourself a list of requirements for your Shaker furniture. More than the décor, make sure that you have all your sizing requirements handy, as well as your color options. If you can, take a few pictures of the areas where you will be placing the Shaker furniture so that you can compare and contrast when you have found a prospective piece of furniture to buy and take home.
You cannot even begin to consider furniture without deciding on a theme for your home – or even for each individual room. Very few people furnish and decorate their entire home on one single theme, but tend to mix them. Thus, many people love to have at least one themed room in their home: an Egyptian room or a room based on Ancient Rome, Classical Greece or an Asian, Wild West or Native American theme.
It is one thing to look at Shaker furniture and go “Hey, that looks nice!” – and it’s a completely different thing to actually buy it and install it in one’s home. While all Shaker furniture are great, you must also remember that the one you choose in particular and decide to purchase is a great fit for your home, particularly in terms of sizing and color requirements.
What this is inferring is that you should decide on a general them for each room before you decide on appropriate home furniture design, and then choose the furniture and a fabric selection appropriate to that theme.
Sit down with your family and make up the best plan for your needs. Keep these tips in mind, but do some research of your own, as well. Once the disaster happens, it will be too late.
o Selection of store is also important as furniture stores broadly fall into 4 general categories – Promotional, Medium, High End and Specialty Stores. These stores may provide you with a still wider array of styles like Traditional, Country, Early American, Shaker, Mission, Modern, Art Deco, Retro, etc. It may therefore be a good idea to give the stores a call and ask for their furniture style line-up. Unless you are fixated with the kind of furniture you want, it might be helpful to note that Modern Furniture includes styles like Southwest, Lifestyle, Lacquers, Euro-look, Retro (50’s), and Art Deco. So just go ahead and experiment!
The best way to ensure that you aren’t being ripped off is to check every inch of the website and make sure that it contains customer feedback and testimonials so you have an idea of what the service is like. Also, give them a call over the phone to ensure that the contact information they are giving is correct and they are not fooling anyone. Sites such as eBay and Amazon may be able to give you a cheaper bargain, and also an opportunity to purchase secondhand Shaker furniture, if you are working on a much-tighter budget.
