Which Furniture Pieces Should You Add To A Wedding Registry?

Posted on

Should you add furniture to your wedding registry? Here at Guaranteed A Fine Furniture, we don’t see anything wrong with it! Your wedding day is all about you, and the celebration of the life ahead of both you and your significant other. Besides, you’re actually making it easier on some of your family members and loved ones alike, as listing furniture pieces gives them the option of pooling money together to buy the pieces you need.

Yet, starting a new life with your significant other can be daunting. You probably don’t have a good idea regarding what type of furniture you are going to need as you both transition from the life of a bachelor/bachelorette to that of a married couple. At Guaranteed A Fine Furniture, we’re here to help! Below are a few of the best furniture pieces that will prove to be invaluable as you transition into married life. 

Curio cabinet

A curio cabinet is perfect furniture piece for storing little knick-knacks.

If you or your significant other loves decorations, then you are going to want to consider adding a curio cabinet to your wedding registry. A curio cabinet is great because it achieves a few things: for starters, they’re the perfect furniture piece for storing little knick-knacks that are special to the both of you, and so on (e.g. pictures, decorative plates, etc.). Moreover, they’re a great way to store delicate China dishware that either of you have inherited from a family member, and best of all? They look great in any room of the home. Stop by our showroom today, and take a look at some of the amazing curio cabinets you can add to your wedding registry! 

Bedding

Upgrade your bedding arrangement when you get married.

As you transition from the life of a bachelor/bachelorette to the life of a married couple, you are going to find that you are going to have to ‘upgrade’ certain furniture pieces – most notably, your bedding arrangements. We don’t have to tell you that keeping your twin size bed isn’t exactly the best idea, so upgrading it to at least a Queen is a must. Even if you already have a Queen-size bed (and your significant other doesn’t mind implementing it into your bedroom), there are other things in the bedroom that are going to need to be added. From a bigger dresser to a mirror (or a dresser/mirror combo) to even a home office desk that will allow you or your significant other to work in a comfortable setting, your bedroom is going to be one of the spaces of your home that demands the biggest upgrades. 

Sofa 

A new sofa is a must when you get married.

Sure, you may have fond memories of that ratty, worn sofa that has followed you throughout college and beyond, but it’s time to think about a replacement couch. Think about the amount of visitors you will typically have now that you’ll have your significant other living with you, and of course, think about his/her needs as well. Think about the type of styles both of you prefer, and come to a resolution regarding what type of sofa you will put on your wedding registry.

Furthermore, consider the amount of extra seating you will need in the living/family room. Do you have a loveseat or chairs that need to be replaced/purchased for the first time? Put it on the wedding registry! Wedding registries are all about preparing for the future, and it’s hard to find a way to prepare for future guests than by adding extra, beautiful seating to your home!

Anything you want to upgrade 

Sit down with your significant other and discuss the furniture you will be adding to your home. From there, talk about the furniture you will want to replace or upgrade. Chances are, the two of you probably have a few furniture pieces that need to be retired and replaced with a better version that suits a married couple. From an entertainment center to a bigger coffee table and especially dining room seating, take an afternoon to assess your furniture and make a list of what needs to be upgraded and replaced, and what can stay in your new home. The sooner you do this, the more likely your loved ones can help out!

Once you make a list of furniture pieces you want on your wedding registry, stop by Guaranteed A Fine Furniture and allow us to not only find the perfect pieces for your new home, but also to help you set up the wedding registry as well. We’ve helped so many couples find their dream furniture via our wedding registries, and we guarantee that we will do the same for you!

Change Any Room With Just One Accent Piece

Posted on

If you’ve ever dealt with a room that seems to be ‘missing something,’ then you know how annoying it can be to make it seem whole again. It can be difficult to know what to implement into the home’s spaces to give it that unique look that you’ve been longing for, and if you’re not sure how to do that, we’re here to help. Accent pieces are the best way to give your home’s spaces an amazing look that is going bring your room to that next level, and ensure that it looks stunning for years to come. Below are a few of the best ways to change any room with one sole accent piece – implement them, and we guarantee that you will be pleased with the results!

Anything ‘artsy’

By adding the right kind of art to your room, you will transform it from being ‘just another room,’ to one that will take any guest’s breath away.

One of the safest standbys for changing any room of the home is also one of the most effective. By adding the right kind of art to your room, you will transform it from being ‘just another room,’ to one that will take any guest’s breath away. Whether you are going for a more rustic look and you want to add metallic art to the room or you are going for a contemporary look and you need a modern art piece to make the room look and feel complete, adding the perfect art piece can work wonders!

Rugs

By adding the perfect rug to compliment your room’s furniture and other decorative items, it will look at its very best.

It’s been said that the right rug can truly bring any home together and give it that perfect finishing touch, and it’s the truth. By adding the perfect rug to compliment your room’s furniture and other decorative items, it will look at its very best. Remember these rules: if you have a large rug, place all of the furniture legs on top of the rug. For a small room, consider keeping the legs off the rug. No matter which method makes sense for you, always choose the biggest rug that will fit comfortable in your spaces – otherwise, your rug will come across as an afterthought (and when you’re trying to add the perfect touch to any room with an accent piece, that’s the last thing you want to do).

Lighting

Lamps are great because they accomplish two things: the best lamps look great and feel like a decorative item, and they add more light that can make the room feel more ‘at home’ and comfortable.

It’s amazing what a little bit of extra lighting can do to a room. If you have a tiny corner in one of your rooms that feels empty or you want to get rid of the ‘dungeon’ feel of your room due to it seeming too dark, consider adding a beautiful lamp into the mix. Lamps are great because they accomplish two things: the best lamps look great and feel like a decorative item, and they add more light that can make the room feel more ‘at home’ and comfortable. Implement a lamp strategically into any space, and you’ve got a room that has the potential to look absolutely stunning.

Mirrors

In the same way that beautiful lighting pieces can bring out the absolute best in your home’s spaces, so too can mirrors. They act like decorative pieces in the same manner as lamps, and no matter what type of look you are going for – rustic, modern, etc. – there is a mirror that can be strategically placed into your room that can bring out the absolute best in it. Combine this tip with our lighting tip above to also make your room look even bigger than it actually is!

Make Your Bedroom Look Bigger With These Furniture Pieces

Posted on

Tired of feeling cramped in your small bedroom? The good news is that you can make it look bigger by strategically adding certain furniture pieces. With a few tweaks to the bedroom, it’s going to look bigger than ever before, allowing you to rest easy without feeling claustrophobic. Stop by our showroom the next opportunity you get, and allow us to help you to find these unique furniture pieces and more!

Keep your furniture low to the ground

low/short furniture can give the illusion that short ceilings are higher than they appear.

Whereas tall furniture is perfectly fine for most rooms of the home, when it comes to a small bedroom, it simply will not do. This means removing any tall chairs, side tables, and even a tall bed out of your room and replacing them with furniture that’s lower to the ground. The trick is to make your ceiling feel higher than it is, thus making the room as a whole feel bigger. This gives you enough space to also add…

Mirrors

mirrors can reflect light which give a room an appearance of looking larger

It’s been an old trick used for decades, and for good reason: mirrors can make any room feel much larger. Don’t just place a mirror and forget about it, though: angle it appropriately. Place it next to a window or if possible, hang a mirror that goes from the ceiling to the floor. Alternatively, you may also want to consider placing two mirrors opposite from one another to create extra lighting in the room. That’s really the trick to it all, to create extra lighting in the room in an effort to make the space look bigger.

Want a bonus tip? When possible, add natural lighting to the room. Keep your curtains and blinds open to allow sunlight to enter the room, thus making your room feel even larger.

Glass/clear furniture

glass (and clear) furniture tricks your eyes into believing that the furniture takes up less space than normal.

The same size and shape as regular furniture, glass (and clear) furniture tricks your eyes into believing that the furniture takes up less space than normal. It makes sense when you think about it: because you can see through this variant of furniture, the furniture doesn’t block the view of the room. Thus, this allows the room to look even bigger. Combine this with our first tip, and you’ll have a room that appears much larger than normal.

Use a daybed if possible

If you don’t need a large bed, consider swapping it out for a daybed.

If you don’t need a large bed, consider swapping it out for a daybed. This will make the room look less like a bedroom, and more like an area where you do miscellaneous tasks such as working (if you have a desk), reading (if you have a bookshelf), or an area for pure relaxation. A small bedroom isn’t a bad thing, and by applying these quick fixes above, you will give it a much classier vibe while making the room appear larger than ever!

Why Fine Leather Furniture Will Last A Lifetime

Posted on

Leather furniture will last a lifetime.

Are you one of those people that believe in buying something, ‘for life?’ If so, you are probably having a difficult time finding new things to purchase that can seemingly last ‘a lifetime.’ Most things are not manufactured to last ‘for life,’ any longer, as manufacturers typically value products that are made ‘cheaply’ rather than designed to last forever.

But your furniture does not have to be one of those things that you have to keep replacing. It’s possible to buy furniture that ‘lasts a lifetime,’ especially if you want to purchase leather furniture to grace your home’s spaces. Yet, not all leather furniture is created equally (and as you are about to see, some leather furniture isn’t even really leather at all). Below are a few reasons how leather furniture will last you a lifetime. Heed our advice, and you will enjoy your new leather furniture for the bulk of your life!

Have any questions? Stop by our showroom today to learn more about protecting your investment!

Stay away from bonded leather 

There are many manufacturers that love to trick oblivious customers into believing they are getting a great deal on leather furniture, when in fact they are buying furniture that’s nothing more than ‘faux leather.’ We’re talking about bonded leather: fake leather that, in reality, is nothing more than glorified plastic – in fact, it only has to consist of 17% leather to even be classified as bonded leather.

If you want leather furniture that’s not only the ‘real deal,’ but will last a lifetime, you need to consider top-grain leather. Top-grain leather is as unique as a fingerprint, as it is made from unique, leather hide. Comprised of roughly 12-14% water, top-grain leather will quickly warm to your body temperature because it’s actually a natural product (so it breathes like one). It’s also very comfortable, never cold, and looks absolutely phenomenal in your home.

To ensure it lasts a lifetime, you must…

Keep it at room temperature

So we’ve established that leather is a natural, breathing product, meaning you need to take special care of it. This means keeping the leather furniture at room temperature at all times. Leather furniture that gets too hot or too cold could become damaged, so keep it away from windows to ensure it doesn’t get sun damaged. If you have to place the furniture next to a window, invest in a cover for the piece to protect it from the elements. In other words… 

Take special care of it 

As you can see, ensuring your leather furniture lasts a lifetime won’t happen if you don’t take consistent care of it! Leather furniture can last as long as you want it to, yet you must be proactive in your care. This means knowing how to properly clean it (i.e. don’t use soap or detergent) by using proper leather furniture cleaner (ask us about what we recommend) and cleaning spills as soon as they happen. Moreover, ensure that you use leather protector regularly to keep it looking pristine.

As it gets older, have a professional clean the leather furniture at least once a year. You will be amazed at how new your furniture will look the older it gets. Protect your investment, and your leather furniture will truly ‘last a lifetime!’

Sofas And Loveseats To Bring Romance To The Living Room

Posted on

If you want to add a little spark of romance to your living room, then it’s essential that you know how to add a flair of romance to your sofa and/or loveseat (whichever type of seating you implement into your living room). It’s an essential touch – especially once the children are away for the evening, you have the night all to yourself, and have an opportunity to spend a lovely evening with one another. What’s the trick to achieving this, though?

We have the answers for you. Below are a few great tips for bringing romance into your living room’s sofa/loveseat. Use them, and have a romantic evening with your significant other the next time you have the evening to yourselves!

Soft cushions, softer pillows

Add different coloured pillows to your furniture.

When it comes to your sofa/loveseat, it’s a packaged deal. You must have soft cushions, and even softer pillows to grace furniture – and why not? After all, this romantic combination makes it easy to lie down on your significant other’s lap, cuddle comfortably on the furniture, and enjoy your time with one another late into the night. For an added touch of romance, consider adding a combination of different coloured pillows to your furniture.

Consider red

Red is of course the colour of love, but it’s also a comforting colour to implement for a night of romance.

If you can’t decide on a colour to implement into your sofa and/or loveseat, know that red is always a safe colour to add. It makes sense once you think about it: red is of course the colour of love, but it’s also a comforting colour to implement for a night of romance. Red makes both parties feel at ease, comfortable, loved, and cherished, making it the optimal colour for a very special evening. Light some candles, put a red cover over the sofa/loveseat, add some romantic tunes to the mix, and you’ve got a recipe for a night worth remembering!

Leather is always a nice touch

Leather adds a touch of romance to your home’s living room.

Alternatively, if you are thinking about purchasing a new sofa/loveseat altogether you should consider purchasing a leather loveseat for your living room. Leather adds a touch of romance to your home’s living room, and sets the perfect mood for your significant other. Comfortable, eloquent, and timeless, leather is a great addition to any living room for the couple that wants a romantic night alone!

Decorate around the seating

By adding ambient lighting (decorative lamps are also fair game) around your sofa/loveseat, you will set the mood even more.

Sometimes, how you decorate around the loveseat and/or sofa is more important than how you decorate on it. Adding new cushions, pillows, covers, and the like are all great touches, but what’s around the loveseat/sofa can make a world of difference. As we’ve stated, adding candles is a great way to set the mood, but adding mirrors is also an awesome touch you can add to your home’s décor. The keyword here is ‘lighting,’ and by adding ambient lighting (decorative lamps are also fair game) around your sofa/loveseat, you will set the mood even more.

Consider also adding non-lighting decorative items, such as vases with beautiful flowers, paintings, metallic art, and more for an awesome, romantic look that will set anyone in the mood.

Stop by our showroom to learn more about how you can decorate your sofa/loveseat and the rest of your living room in a romantic manner, and  set the mood properly for your significant other the next time you both have an evening together. Take it from us: it makes the difference between just having another ‘date night’ and having a night the both of you will never forget!

Quality Leather Furniture Can Work For Your Office

Posted on

If you are thinking about remodeling your office (whether it’s an office in your home or a traditional office), know that leather furniture can work for you. While it may seem as if leather furniture for the office is out-of-date, looks out of place, or whatever the case may be, nothing could be further from the truth. Leather furniture can make any office look stunning with a few simple design tips – and we’re here to help. If you like the ideas we have for you below, stop by our showroom, and let us assist you in getting the best leather furniture into your office today!

Embellish the leather furniture

embellished leather furniture

Nothing screams, ‘professional,’ more than embellished furniture. When shopping for the perfect leather pieces for your office, think about adding leather furniture that features nailhead trim, a headboard with stitching that is exposed, and so much more. When it comes to leather furniture, the leather does not have to be the real star of the show: the embellishments that come with it are just as important!

Accessorize around the furniture

pillows as chair accessories

Bouncing off our point that leather is never the only star when it comes to your leather furniture, that brings us to our next point: accessorizing around the furniture. Accessories bring out the true beauty of leather furniture, so consider adding rugs, hanging pictures around the furniture, implanting vases, statues, and other types of décor that will make the leather furniture look even bolder than before. Speaking of…

Be bold

Consider adding metallic fixtures to your office to bring out the bold nature of the leather furniture. Gold, metallic mirrors are fair game, as are bold designs hanging on the wall. Bolder is better when it comes to adding cool décor around your leather furniture, so don’t be afraid to go outside of your comfort zone and be bolder than normal!

Maintain it

Recently, we discussed how to care for your leather furniture, and it bears repeating. If you are going to add leather furniture into your office, then you need to be prepared to properly maintain it throughout its life. Follow the tips in the linked post above, and avoid cracking, peeling, and other problems associated with not properly taking care of your leather furniture. The more diligent you are about ensuring that your leather furniture stays in the best condition possible, the better!

Beds That Set The Mood For Love

Posted on

Let’s be honest for a moment: your bed isn’t solely used for sleeping. When purchasing a bed, you need to ensure that it’s just as comfortable to make love on it as it is to sleep – and that’s where we come in to help. Below are a few of our top bedding choices that are certain to set the mood for love. Stop by our showroom today to see what we have in stock for you, take it home, and enjoy – you can thank us later!

Fabric round bed

romantic round bed for bedroom

With the 70’s making a comeback, round beds are all the rage right now. Because we’ve been so accustomed to ordinary beds for decades, the sight of a round bed alone is enough to make your significant other intrigued as to how it scores in the ‘lovemaking department.’ Funky and hip, it’s a great way to set the mood – and the best part of all? You will have just as much room as you would on an ordinary bed – plus, it takes up roughly half the space!

Want to set the mood even more? Consider recreating a true vibe of the 70’s by purchasing a fabric bed in a funky, bright colour. Stop by today, and let us accommodate you!

Leather round bed

Perhaps you’re intrigued by the thought of a round bed, yet you want to keep things a little more classical. If that’s the case, we urge you to consider purchasing a leather round bed instead. Nothing sets the mood quite like fine leather, and when graced upon a round bed appropriately, you have the best of both worlds: a taste of the 70’s with a classical twist that is certain to set the tone for the evening.

King sized bed (with espresso headboard)

If you are not on board with a round bed or you simply want something bigger, consider simply purchasing a king sized bed – but be sure you purchase a bed with a proper headboard. We suggest purchasing an espresso headboard, as bold, brown colours graced atop a king sized bed is the absolute best way to create a proper mood for the evening. Your significant other will undoubtedly be impressed by the overall vibe of the bed, so stop by today and see what we can do to get this type of bedding into your home’s bedroom ASAP!

Queen sized bed with white trim

Perhaps a queen sized bed will do just fine for you and your significant other: if so, consider our queen sized bed featuring white trim. The headboard – also white – features an emblem in the middle that makes the bed look as if it was pulled out of a royal home. Complete with elegant, metallic legs designed with royalty in mind, it’s a bed that is certain to set the tone for love.

Blending The Right Home Decor Pieces With Your Furniture

Posted on

Here’s the predicament: you’ve purchased new furniture for your home, and it looks absolutely stunning. Yet, something is missing, and you’re not quite sure what it is. The furniture, while it looks amazing, doesn’t feel as full as you pictured it. You’re missing décor pieces that complement the furniture and make it look even more dazzling, but which décor pieces should you choose? That’s the big question.

With so many different types of décor pieces to choose from, it can be difficult to know which pieces are worth adding to your home’s spaces and which ones you should pass by. Below are a few of our favourite décor pieces that we believe perfectly complementing any room of the home. Stop by our showroom today, and discover what a few unique accent pieces can do for your home!

Side tables

Think of a side table as the pockets of your furniture. Sure, you can sit on that fancy sofa, but where are you going to place your drink or the remote? We’ll tell you where you won’t place it – your new furniture (especially your drink). A side table fixes that by allowing you to be within arm’s reach of the things that you like to use while you sit down. Moreover, a side table can make elegant furniture look even more beautiful, and bring out the absolute best in it. A side table truly brings out the best of both worlds!

Lamps

A lamp can make your new furniture look even more beautiful.

Whether you love to read or you enjoy extra lighting on your new furniture, a lamp can make your new furniture look even more beautiful. Why wouldn’t it? After all, if you are shining a lamp on your new furniture, you are allowing your guests to get a full glimpse of the furniture in all of its glory. Plus, a lamp can make you feel more welcomed and ‘at home,’ allowing you to relax on your new furniture while being in a pleasant mood.

Coffee tables

If you are going to own a sofa, a coffee table is an absolute must.

If you are going to own a sofa, a coffee table is an absolute must. Not only is a coffee table the proverbial lap of your sofa, but it’s arguably the most flexible piece you can place into your home. Think about it: what other piece allows you to eat dinner while watching television, sit your coffee cup while you chat with friends, browse the Internet on your laptop, or even allow you to express your individuality by way of a beautiful big book (e.g. coffee table books) or a stack of magazines? We can’t think of any (unless you do all of those things at a dining room table – and we doubt you do!). Versatile yet beautiful, a coffee table truly brings a room together!

Rugs

Speaking of bringing rooms together, rugs practically invented the notion that a home décor piece can transform a room from, ‘meh,’ to, ‘wow.’ The perfect rug makes all the different in your home, and the best thing of all? It can be layered to create a stunning look that’s as individualized as you. Add a rug to all of these home décor pieces in your home’s spaces simultaneously, and you have a look that will make your guests jealous!

Accent pieces

Accent pieces, be creative.

Vases, a China cabinet, statues, mirrors – all of these little items can make a big impact on the tone of your home. Accent pieces are an amazing thing, because they don’t take up a lot of space, yet when implemented strategically they can make a world of difference in how others perceive your home. Don’t be afraid to mix-and-match your accent pieces accordingly, and get creative!
