Furniture Idol

So, let's see what the judges think:

"(British Accent) This is the worst couch I have ever seen!  What were you thinking?"
"Yo dog, the colors are a little dingy, but it's iight."
"I just don't get it. Is it vintage?"

Wouldn't it be fun if there were judges following us around to help us decide how to fill our rooms?  We have all walked through the doors stunned as we look over a building filled to the brim with couches, chairs, lamps, beds, dressers, rugs, art, flooring samples, etc.  In a hushed, scared whisper we say,  "How am I ever going to choose?"  To make matters worse, each couch or chair has even more fabric options to choose from, causing more frustration.  Since we started the blog, we've had more readers coming to us for help and sharing with us their dreams of making their homes a star!  I have a way I'm able to narrow down the competition.   Pretend you are your own "Furniture Idol" judge.  Ask your self a few questions as you're looking at your next furniture purchase.

1. Where is it going?
Figure out where you're going to be putting the furniture.  Measure it out before hand, and start looking for something that will fit.

2. What's the function?
For example, if you're buying a couch, think about how many people you need it to seat.  Do you need it to turn into a place for sleeping?  Will you use it a lot or only occasionally? 

3. What's the Style?
What style is going to fit in your home?  Once you figure that out, look only for pieces that fit that style.

4. What Color?
Figure out the color scheme for your room and find pieces in those colors or in similar shades.

5. How much?
How much can you spend?  You don't want to blow all your money on one purchase..

Asking yourself these five question can help you figure out what the right choice will be to win a place in your home, and win the title of being the next "Furniture Idol!"
