Congratulations! You just got married. Starting a new life with someone is one of the most exciting things you can go through and in order to keep things really fresh, you might decide to up sticks and move somewhere new. Picking out a new home with your partner can be a huge bonding experience but when it comes to selecting the right furniture, it’s easy to get lost in decision. Seeing eye to eye with the one you love isn’t always the easiest thing and rather than disputing over a sofa choice, it’s worth taking your time with the whole thing. By planning your approach before you go, you can make the most out of your furniture choices. Before you know it, you’ll have a home to be envied!
- Get The Basics First
Something caught your eye? Try and put it out of your head until you have what you really need. Getting the basics should be your first priority, so make sure you’re looking for a good sofa, fridge and bed. When you’re planning your approach, make a list of every item you want to buy and how much you need it. While the big items are the most important, don’t forget about proper seating and bed stands. You need to have enough in order to feel truly at home and store away your things when you don’t want them.
- Argue Your Corner
Worried that a disagreement will set your marriage off on the wrong foot? Try to relax. While picking out furniture together is a milestone, it’s not always going to be a walk in the park. If you have spotted an item and your other half isn’t convinced, don’t be afraid to state your argument. While you shouldn’t let furniture dictate your happiness, you should feel like you can stand up for something that you like. Try and be reasonable but if your spouse simply isn’t on board, it might not be worth blowing it out of the water.
- Look For Multibuys
While sofa beds are the go-to double-function item, you can do a great deal more with a whole other set of furniture. Keep your eye out for smaller tables that can extend into dining sets, or coffee tables that can be used as an office desk. If something serves two purposes, then it’s all the better for your bank balance!
