5 Chicago Furniture Store Shopping Tips

When you’re ready to make a trip to your favorite Chicago furniture store, Wrightwood furniture, you may want some shopping tips! Here are our top 5 tips for shopping in our store!

1. Don’t be overwhelmed when furniture shopping

Console tables, media stands, and dressers oh my! Since our showroom is over 10,000 square feet, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of wonderful things you can see. But don’t fret! Our massive inventory is neatly stocked so you’ll be able to explore through our furniture without feeling stressed. And if you do start to feel overwhelmed, simply ask one of our lovely employees for some guidance.

2. Buy quality furniture, not quantity

If you’re a recent college grad or living by yourself for the first time, you may feel like you need to buy all your furniture at once. But buying quality pieces slowly as opposed to buying a lot of cheap furniture will end up saving you money in the long run. Luckily, when you come to your favorite Lakeview furniture store (us of course), you never have to worry about faulty quality. So get a nice chest of drawers and maybe a TV stand to start out with and then work up to furnishing the rest of your house over time.

3. Don’t be afraid to mix furniture styles

While it can be easy for most people to simply stick with one style of furniture, an eclectic look is often more stylish. Luckily for you, at Wrightwood, we have a ton of different styles for you to choose from. From great industrial furniture and Rustic Railroad, to Teak to Amazing India, all of our shipments are perfect for mixing and matching.

4. Be bold with color on your furniture selections

Lots of people shy away from using colors for their furniture because they’re scared that they will fall out of style or they won't love it in the long run. While you shouldn’t buy all of your furniture in bright colors, a few key pieces, like a teal night stand or a red side table that match with your existing décor can really spruce up your room.

5. Accessorize your furniture!

An inexpensive and low-commitment way to add pizzazz to your home is to add accessories. We’ve got the perfect pillows, lamps and accents that you’ll love in your home.
