How to prepare to decorate a room

Picking furniture for your living room or guest room can be overwhelming when you do not know what color scheme you want, and theme and so forth. The Futon Shop has a suggestion list of how to prepare before making that purchase for your home.

1) picking the color- look what is around the room
  • carpet
  • lamps, chairs
  • wall color
  • ask the sales person if you can have them mail or loan a pillow or swatch
2) what is your theme in the room
  • modern
  • eastern
  • vintage
  • traditional
  • contemporary
  • country
  • eco-friendly
  • wood

3) Budget
  • research websites online for deals
  • ask your friends and family
  • take your time and really take a couple weekends with friends or family to shop
4) Washability
  • Kids or dogs- microfiber is great! you can wash it and stain resistant
  • Do you like a couch that is very tight and may not want a cover that is removable
5) Allergies
you may want to talk to your doctor what they recommend you should stay away from
  • inform your sales person right away what you are allergic to
6) Organic
  • The Futon Shop and many other companies have their products plus an Organic line

7) Custom
  • you can always come in with measurements and ask the sales person for a quote.

8) Accent pillows
you may want to think about going neutral and have fun with pattern pillows or vice versa
