Did you know furniture stores in the U.S. total 53.89 billion a year?
Without a doubt, the furniture industry is an important one in the United States. After all, we all need a bed to sleep in and a couch to sit on.
If you just moved into a new place or got a big promotion, you might be considering upgrading your furniture.
Read on to learn these tips for buying adult furniture.
1. Purchase Statement Pieces
Deciding you need adult furniture doesn’t mean you have to break the bank with every single piece you purchase.
In fact, when adults buy furniture, they invest only in statement pieces. These statement pieces are those that you will be able to keep for years to come.
A mattress, for example, is a statement piece of adult furniture. Even though you won’t run to show your guests your mattress, as an adult it’s important you get a good night sleep.
2. Measure the Space
When you’re a young adult living with roommates, it might be okay to have furniture that is too small or too large for the space. After all, you’re getting all of your furniture from garage sales or family members.
However, when you start purchasing adult furniture, you need to ensure the furniture fits right. You’re planning on spending big bucks on it after all.
Imagine bringing home a modern sideboard and it doesn’t fit the space.
It’s important you have the measurements available when you go furniture shopping.
3. Invest in a Couch
You will probably spend more time on your couch than anywhere else in your house.
As we mentioned earlier, you need to invest in statement pieces and a couch is one of them. You will want to get a quality couch so it lasts for a long time and it doesn’t look worn out after a few months.
If you invest the big bucks on the couch, you can get cheaper accessories for the rest of the living room.
4. Buy Art
While you don’t have to bid on Piccasso paintings, you should buy some art pieces as an adult.
Buying art by real artists is the ultimate step when you’re ready to buy adult furniture. If you’re not ready to spend thousands of dollars on art, you can check up and coming artists at your local art galleries.
5. Don’t Rule out Ikea
Although you might think Ikea is the opposite of adult furniture, there are still some great pieces you can buy.
If you spend a lot of money on your statement pieces, you can still go to Ikea for accessories.
For example, Ikea is a great place where you can buy lamps, accent pillows, and even rugs.
Not too mention, you can get plenty of things to organize your drawers and closets.
