Here at Augustus & Carolina, our staff is well versed in helping clients find exactly what they’re looking for. From giving your living room a face-lift with a new furniture set to filling your entire home with pieces chosen by our in-house interior designers, we’re here to help! That’s why we’ve come up with a few dos and don’ts when it comes to buying furniture. 

DO

Measure Your Space

Whether you’re looking for just one piece of furniture or multiple, writing down the measurements of the space you’re going to put it will help when it comes time to picking out the perfect piece. You don’t want to deal with the stress of buying a piece that’s too big – trust us!

Measure Door Frames

So you have enough space for the piece in your room, but will it fit through your doorway? It’s so important to measure the entryways you plan on using when bringing your furniture pieces inside. Of course, we’re always here to help. 

Test Out Pieces

Once you’ve taken all the proper measurements, it’s time to shop! When looking for pieces make sure you try them out! Whether you’re super tall and need a taller sitting couch or you like to take naps on the couch, don’t hesitate to try sitting on a few (or all) of the pieces we have in our warehouse – that’s what they’re there for! 

DON’T

Assume You’re Asking A Stupid Question

When it comes to buying furniture, there are no stupid questions. Our staff here at Augustus & Carolina is well versed in the many different types of furniture we carry. If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to ask! 

Assume All The Pieces You Like Will Match

It’s very easy to get distracted by all the good-looking pieces of furniture and picking pieces you like – but don’t necessarily match each other or the theme of the room you’re furnishing. Need help? Our in-house interior designers would be more than happy to help you!

Overall, when it’s time for you to purchase furniture you don’t have to worry about pushy salespeople pressuring you to buy pieces of furniture that aren’t right for you! That’s not us! We want to help fill your home with beautiful furniture that you can enjoy for many years to come. Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have!
