Carpet or Hardwood?

Carpet or Hardwood?

Posted on

Thinking of redesigning your home? One of the main points that can cause any homeowner to struggle is whether they have their floors be covered in carpet or hardwood. Of course, there are benefits to both – however, there are many factors you must take in ahead of time.

Today we will be talking about whether your home would be best fit for carpet or hardwood, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of both. Take these tips to heart while planning out your new interior design plan!

 

Carpet

Carpet can make a room pop by adding designs and colour to it. Using the right colour carpet can make your furniture stand out even more to guests when they walk in the room. However, it’s very important that you take your furniture into account before choosing which carpet you’d like to use. There is nothing worse than adding carpet to your living room, only to find out it very much clashes with your couch. Carpet can also be more difficult to clean, especially if an accidental spill happens!

Another huge benefit of having carpet is, of course, the warmth it provides your feet when walking. Never again will you have to walk into your living room only to be greeted with freezing cold floors. The warmth and softness of carpet provide you with a sense of physical comfort that cannot be matched.

 

Hardwood 

Is there anything more lovely than a nice hardwood floor? Walking into a home with a well-kept hardwood floor is one of the most beautiful aspects of a home. The beauty of the hardwood demands respect from the entrants.

Hardwood is also great for its versatility. You can use almost any furniture with hardwood floors and it’ll likely match. With its ease of cleanliness, you can also be sure that your home will shine whenever guests come over, giving your home the look of luxury.

Of course, hardwood often means cold floors, meaning you may have to wear slippers in the winter. Hardwood floors, while easy to keep clean, can be difficult to upkeep. While they are known to be long-lasting, you may have to refinish them every few years – otherwise, you may find they lack the shine it used to have.

 

Deciding between hardwood floors and carpet can be a very difficult task. However, if you take these tips into account, you may find yourself having an easier time deciding. Remember, before deciding on hardwood vs. carpet – take your furniture into account.

Party Host Tips

Posted on

If you are hosting a party or get together at your home for the first time, it can be pretty overwhelming. There’s a lot of pressure on you being the host, as it’s your responsibility to ensure the guests at your home are entertained. The question is – where do you start?

Today, Guaranteed A Fine Furniture will be giving you tips for entertaining guests. Utilizing these tips, you can be sure that your guests will have a great time at your get together, and will be sure to come back again!

 

Have A Theme

Themes are a great way to spice up your party or get together and ensure that your event is a memorable one. While some people may go over the top with their themes, even having a simple theme in mind can be a great and easy way to dress up your home and make it more interesting!

 

De-Clutter

Another important aspect to ensuring your guests are entertained is by making sure they have the space needed to be entertained. Homes often time are cluttered by decorations, furniture and more. This can limit the movement of guests and make them feel trapped.

Before the party, take a walk around your home. Do the main areas seem fit to hold multiple people, or will it leave people feeling claustrophobic? Take the unnecessary furniture/decorations and store it in your garage until the guests leave!

 

Consider All Tastes When Creating A Playlist

Of course, no get together is complete without music! However, choosing the right playlist can prove to be a very difficult task. However, rather than choosing a pre-made playlist, why not create your own?

It’s important that you keep your guests in mind when creating a music playlist. It can be easy to get off track and put your favourite music on there – but remember that your guests may not have your musical taste. Look at your guest list – chances are you know many of the people well enough to know what kind of music they listen to. Put something for everyone on the playlist!

 

No-Cook Snacks

While snacks such as bacon-wrapped sausage and sliders are always a party classic, they take time to make. The last thing you want is a room full of hungry guests while their snacks still have 15 – 20 minutes of cooking time. For this reason, it’s important that you prepare no-cook snacks for the party that can act as filler while the main foods cook.

 

When you’re hosting a party, it can be overwhelming. However, using these simple tips can make your party or get together one that all of your guests will remember! Remember, if you need furniture to make your guests envious of your home – shop quality and stylish furniture at Guaranteed A Fine Furniture!

 

 

 

 

Unique Decorating Tips

Posted on

Have you ever walked into your home and thought to yourself, “This looks very empty”? Often times people will fill up rooms with furniture, and no matter how gorgeous said furniture is there is still one very important aspect missing – decorations.

However, throwing up just any decoration is not enough. Your home should show your unique style and how that style separates your home from others. That’s why today, Guaranteed A Fine Furniture wants to give you unique decorating tips!

 

Show Off Your Art by Using a Curtain

Show off your artistic side by hanging wall art! There are many tips for hanging wall art, but if you have pieces your very proud of then there’s a simple way of putting the main focus on those pieces: a curtain.

Simply hang a long curtain rod with a curtain that hangs all the way down to the floor. This curtain (preferably velvet) should cover most if not all of the wall which you will be hanging your art on. This curtain not only draws attention to its direction, but will also give your room a more comforting feel all while giving your gorgeous art piece more pop.

 

Take Inspiration From A Locale

Give your home some cultural flavor by taking inspiration from a locale of your choosing. From Paris to Tokyo, every locale has its own unique flavour. You can stun guests and make them feel as though they’ve stepped into a whole other country simply by decorating with cultural and unique items!

 

Don’t Be Afraid To Be Daring

Lastly, don’t be afraid to be daring! When it comes to creating unique decorating ideas, being daring is the key to creating a home that will stand out from others. This means thinking outside the box. For example, don’t be afraid to use clashing colors or textures in your home’s design.

At the end of the day, this is YOUR home. Everyone has their own unique style, and you are no exception. Want to paint your walls in a checker pattern? Go right ahead. Do whatever best fits your own personal unique style!

 

A home isn’t just a home – it’s an extension of who you are. Decorate it to help fit your unique sense of style! Remember, if you are in need of any furniture or decorations during your home restyling, stop by Guaranteed A Fine Furniture located at 4735 Tecumseh Rd. E!

Tips For Buying a Sofa

Posted on

Have an old, torn up sofa that you are finally deciding to get rid of? Congratulations! Buying a new sofa is a great way to update the look and feel of your home. However, finding the right sofa is a difficult task – a decision that cannot be made lightly.

When shopping around for sofas, there are multiple factors you must take in. What colour sofa do you want? What size will fit nicely in your home? Do you want leather or suede? Taking all these factors into account is a must, as the sofa you purchase will stick with you for years. Luckily, Guaranteed A Fine Furniture is here to give you tips on buying a sofa that’s right for you!

 

Take Your Other Furniture Into Account

It’s important that you look at your living room as a whole. When shopping for a new sofa, it can be easy to see one that you think is extremely nice and be tempted to buy it right away. However, doing so without thinking about how it will match with your other furniture can lead to problems.

Matching with your other furniture keeps your living room consistent. While you want your sofa to stand out, you don’t want it to look out of place. Keep the colours and style of your living room in mind when buying a sofa!

 

Know Your Measurements

Before you even head to the store (we sell plenty of sofas here at Guaranteed A Fine Furniture), it’s important that you measure the room that you are purchasing for. During this exciting time, it can be tempting to want to rush to the shop and buy the couch that you’ve had your eye. However, if you get it home and realize that it leaves no room for your other furniture, you’ve put yourself in quite a predicament.

 

Who Will Be Sitting On It?

Lastly, take into account who will be sitting on this sofa – especially when deciding what size sofa you want to purchase. How many people are in your household? Are you going to have guests over regularly? These all factors all need to be taken into account when buying a sofa.

A person who lives alone is going to have different sizing needs than someone with a large family. While a sofa’s aesthetics are important, it doesn’t mean much if it can’t fit enough people comfortably. While you’re buying a sofa, remember to take into account how many people this sofa needs to support.

 

Buying a sofa is an exciting process and one that can completely transform the look of your home. The important thing to remember is not to rush – otherwise, you may come home with a couch that doesn’t fit or match your living room. Looking to buy a sofa? Stop by Guaranteed A Fine Furniture today!
