When you're moving into a new home, one of the very first thoughts you'll have is how you're going to fill in all of the empty spaces and make them useful to you and your daily routines. This is the perfect time to set the tone for your new surroundings! It's common that you're going to need a couple of new pieces of furniture for your new home at the very least. If this is your first home or a big difference between the amount of space you had in your last area of living, you'll need more furniture than somebody who is just switching their surroundings but staying in the same size house. There are so many options when it comes to buying furniture in Pittsburgh, and we're here to go over some of the most popular options so you can make the best choice for your space and budget. Some people will be hesitant to go this route but if your budget is tight you may be able to skip the expensive stores all together if you keep an eye out for Craigslist, furniture tends to be one of the best deals you'll find on there. Often times people are in a rush to move out and really need to sell off their furniture they will no longer have room for. Just be smart about it.
There are a lot of furniture stores in the Pittsburgh area, so you shouldn't have any trouble going out and getting some ideas about pricing and available styles. Pittsburgh Furniture Company is a good choice for used furniture, they have some stunning vintage pieces as well as regular used pieces. There are even some custom furniture makers who will surely be able to craft a unique piece that is perfectly personalized to you and your personal style. However, we want to caution you against going with those flashy zero percent down deals with financing that you might come across online or on the television, as they often have high interest rates after an introductory period, and the pieces are usually marked up to begin with, and their "Free TV's" are terrible. No rent to own places either. It's much better to set a budget and save up the money to avoid the potential catastrophes that might occur with this type of exploitative financing.
It's a good idea to buy one piece or two pieces of furniture at a time because this way you can make rational decisions about each piece, instead of buying the first set you see due to all of the excitement that moving often brings. Of course, if you find an awesome sale, you might want to buy more than one or two pieces, but that's up to your personal judgment. It's a good idea to check the different resale stores in your area, but remember that you'll never truly know where that piece came from, if it was ever cleaned, reupholstered, or its exact history of use. We've put together some questions for you to ask potential furniture sellers to hopefully ease your mind and make the entire process easier and make feel more comfortable in your interactions and transactions with furniture sellers! And don't forget to use any moving blankets you bought for your move when transporting new furniture to keep it pristine. In the end, you'll be in your new home with some furniture pieces that reflect your personal style and make sense when it comes to usability within your daily life.
