New Furniture For A New Home: Where to start?

You thought the hard part was finding a new home!  Since Solitaire Homes helped you out with that decision, now you have to furnish your new home.  Where do you start?  Who has the best deals?  How do you decide how much furniture you actually need?  Here are a couple quick suggestions for some great places for furniture for your new home!


A Good Bed

A great night’s sleep is important especially when you are putting your extra energy into making your new house a home.  You need a comfortable bed and a nice sleeping environment.  Set off to your nearest mattress store to find a comfortable and supportive mattress.  Need the whole bedroom set?  Try someplace such as Value City Furniture or even go online to great sites like for great deals and cheap shipping.  Not ready to sink a lot of money into your bedroom yet?  Try Craigslist or Facebook for some great used items that people are ready to part with for a little bit of nothing.

A Place To Eat

The kitchen table is the gathering place in most homes.  Not only do you eat together but it’s a place to gather for homework, projects and family game nights.  The best thing about the kitchen table is that you just need to get one that YOU feel comfortable with and enjoy.  Make it a statement of your own personal style.  Another fun thing about table shopping is you don’t have to limit yourself to big box stores or furniture stores.  Go to a local flea market, antique shop or even a garage sale and find yourself a hidden jem.  A little elbow grease and paint and you will have the size and shape of table you want, without breaking the bank.

Place To Relax

Last, but not least, a nicely furnished family room makes a great place for you and your family to relax and enjoy each other’s company.  The essential item (besides a big screen tv for sports and movie nights) is a comfortable couch that fits all of your family members.  Whether you pick a sectional or a combination of couch and chairs or a love seat, you will need to find furniture to fit your budget.  Don’t forget to check places such as your local wholesale warehouse for a great find!  If you head into a furniture store, make sure to walk to the back where most stores have a clearance section and some great deals on all types of couches and entertainment centers.
