Determine Your Needs

Before embarking on a furniture shopping trip, we always recommend starting by determining your needs and preferences. This will help you focus on pieces that meet your criteria, making the shopping experience much more efficient and productive.

Take some time to consider the style, size, and functionality you require in your furniture. Knowing what you need will narrow down the options and save you from wasting time and money on items that don't ultimately meet your needs. By doing this, you can confidently invest in pieces that will enhance your home in the long run.

Check the Fit

Before making any furniture purchases, it's important to measure the space where you plan to place it. This will ensure that the furniture fits properly and avoids any potential headaches down the line. Simply measure the length, width, and height of the area and compare it to the furniture's dimensions before making a decision. Doing so will save you time, money, and frustration in the long run.

If you've got an armchair or sofa which perfectly fits a space, we recommend exploring our reupholstery service. And it's not just sofas that we re-upholster. Sofas, armchairs, footstools and headboards. We restore and upholster anything from dining chairs to window seats. We even upholster boats & Motorbike seats!

Consider the Materials

When shopping for furniture, it's important to consider not only the design but also the quality of the materials and construction. This is particularly important if you're looking for pieces that will last for years to come.

Choosing durable materials and fabrics can help ensure that your furniture will stand up to everyday wear and tear, as well as any unexpected accidents. At Grandad's Shed, we believe investing in high-quality furniture can save money in the long run and help you enjoy your pieces for years to come. 

We've got a huge range of fabrics to explore so get in touch today if you'd like to discover more.
