furniture buying tips delivery warranty

In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some basics on how to go about purchasing high-quality furniture for any part of your home. While various rooms or design elements you’re looking at may come with many other distinct needs and elements, it often pays to zoom out and take a broad look at things from 10,000 feet, as they say.

At Guild Hall Home Furnishings, we’re proud to not only offer the very best selection of beautiful home decor options in Salt Lake City, but also to provide interior design services and many related areas of assistance that help our clients create the perfect design for their entire home. What are some other tips we often regularly provide clients from a general perspective when they’re looking at or actively purchasing furniture for their homes? Here are several themes.

Delivery is Important

There are a few themes you may have to think about that stretch beyond simple furniture matching and selection during this process, and one of them is delivery. If you’re working with a company that doesn’t provide delivery services, this is something you’ll want to keep in mind and budget for as you make your purchases.

Similarly, if there are any access issues at your home that might complicate furniture delivery – such as a narrow staircase, limited elevator access or anything else – be sure to mention this during your consultation. A reputable furniture store will be well aware of these sorts of things and can usually work with you to find a suitable solution.

Finally, be sure to inquire about specific delivery date and timing availability before you make your purchase. Depending on the company, particular items or other factors, it may be a few weeks before delivery can be arranged.

Warranty Considerations

Another area you’ll want to touch base on before you make your purchase is the warranty or guarantee that comes with the furniture in question. Most high-quality furniture companies will offer some form of warranty, though the terms may vary considerably.

In many cases, companies will also allow you to purchase an extended warranty for an additional cost. If you’re looking at a particularly expensive or heirloom-quality piece of furniture, this may be something to consider.

Asking the Right Questions

Remember, the tips and suggestions we’ve gone over here are just that: suggestions and tips. The best way to ensure you’re making the right decision for your home, your style and your budget is always to consult with a professional.

A good interior designer or furniture consultant will be able to guide you through the process, answer your questions and make sure you’re getting the best possible value for your investment.
