Over the past two years, we have all spent much more time at home. This has caused many of us to reflect on our own spaces and want to make improvements. Do you want to find the perfect pieces? With raw material shortages, dwindling stock, it is important to shop with a plan.
Tips on shopping:
Come prepared. Be sure to bring measurements and pictures of your space with you. This way if you happen to find a floor model or in-stock item, you can make a decision and take advantage of a quick delivery or pick it up
Keep your expectations realistic. The Covid pandemic has impacted every industry including furniture. Due to raw material shortages, safe working environments for their employees, and an influx in demand there are numerous delays.
Take advantage of in-stock or floor models. However, if you’re looking for custom-ordered pieces like a sectional in a certain colour, then be prepared to wait approximately 16 weeks even if it’s manufactured in Ontario. Patience will be necessary.
Winter is coming and colder weather. We will be staying inside more so now is the time to make your interior space more aesthetically pleasing. Like the adage: There is no time like the present! Hope these tips help with your in-person shopping experience.
