How to update your decor in time for Christmas… without breaking the bank!
With the amazing upcoming homewares and furniture sales at Hussh, there’s no better time to bag a bargain before the Christmas festivities begin. Here’s some top tips on what to look for when buying furniture and updating your interiors.
1. Measure up
It might seem like an obvious first step, but lots of people don’t take a tape measure to the room before buying their new lounge or bed. Consider the space, the shape of the space and how much of it you’re willing to fill. How many people would you like to accommodate? Will a corner sofa work best, would your bedroom fit a king-size or queen bed?
2. Consider your existing colour and texture palette
You might fall in love with the velvet lounge, but will the style fit with your other furniture and decoration? Consider the colours and textures and perhaps pick up a few extra decorative pieces to tie it all together.
3. Comfort is Key!
For a lounge, you shouldn’t be able to feel the frame through the upholstery, and cushions should be soft enough to feel comfortable but firm enough to not lose their shape. When buying a bed, consider the type of mattress – does it come with one? How high is bed base? We spend a lot of time in bed, so it’s worth spending the money for something that will last and support your back. Check out the Luxe Direct Exclusive Warehouse Sale for up to 70% off mattresses.
4. High maintenance?
Check the legs are sturdy and any stitching is secure. If the lounge or the bed head have button details, make sure they are well attached. Also check out the fabric – is it easy to clean? You don’t want that wayward glass of red or cup of coffee to be a lasting memory of Christmas for the rest of the year!
Outdoor furniture needs a bit more TLC thanks to the elements it gets exposed to. Metal, plastic or wicker is hard wearing. If you’re going for wood, check if it’s been treated and make sure to maintain the upkeep for the best results.
