Four Steps to Decorating Success

If you’re ready to dive into redesigning or furnishing your apartment, you need a checklist to help you stay on track and fulfill all your interior design needs. Follow these steps to make sure your shopping process is a success:

  1. Pinpoint what items you need. Essentials like a bed, sofa and loveseat set, and a dining set should be at the top of your list. Once you understand your essentials, you can add on extras to fill out your apartment with beautiful and functional furniture.
  2. Set a budget range that offers wiggle room. In this post, we’re teaching you how to shop within a $2,000 budget. However, don’t be afraid to leave room for unexpected extras like accent chairs, an ottoman, lamps, and other accessories.
  3. Find a style that you’ll love for years. If you think about it, investing in one furniture set that you will use for years will save you tons of money down the road. Try a timeless style or something that suits your personality to add a playful and lasting design element to your home.
  4. Shop at American Freight Furniture and Mattress for all your furniture and mattress needs. We will help you furnish your apartment with brand-new, stylish furniture that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
