Responsive imageFurniture shopping is important, but it doesn't have to be a headache. Here at Badcock furniture store Fort Lauderdale, we know just how important it is.

Here's a complete guide to putting a functional yet stylish room together, without going mad or going over budget.

Your Living Room Is The Hub Of Your Home

The living room is possibly the most important room in your home. It's where everybody gathers at the end of the day. You relax there. You celebrate there. You simply spend time together there. That's why your furniture is so important in your living room. It's the place where you relax, so you need furniture that's comfortable and soothing to come home to at the end of a long day. As well as this, you need it to be pleasing to the eye, as you see so much of it. Finally, but most importantly, it needs to be functional. Furniture that can do all three is vital in your home. Here at Badcocks FL, we know this so we strive for all our furniture to hit all three marks. Our living room furniture Fort Lauderdale is designed with this in mind, so when you come in you'll find just what you were looking for.

Remodel Or Addition?

So if you're looking for furniture for your living room, you need to think about what you're hoping to achieve. Are you remodeling a room, or are you adding or replacing furniture?
  • Remodel: You could be remodeling for several reasons. Maybe you're moving into your first home, and need to buy everything that your new living room will need. Maybe you're redecorating, and you want to get furniture that will match your new vision.
  • Either way, think about what you need from your furniture. Is style important to you? Do you need it to be super comfortable? Does everything need to match exactly, or do you like some mismatch to your furnishings? Also, you'll need to think about what styles you like. Do you tend to go for a more modern or traditional style when it comes to your furnishings?
  • Adding or replacing: If you're changing out one or two pieces, think about why you're doing it. Has the piece become broken or difficult to use? Was it just old and needed to go? Maybe it had just simply gone out of style. If so, this should inform your new choice for your living room.

What Materials Match Your Decor?

You'll already have existing decor to work with, so you need to think about how your new pieces of furniture will fit in with what you already have. If you look on, you'll see that we stock all kinds of materials, including:

* Metal
* Wood
* Acrylic
* Fabric
* Glass
* Leatherette
* Marble
* Stone
* Vinyl

As you can see, there's a huge choice. Depending on what you're buying, you can pick materials to blend in with what you already own, or to stand out in contrast with them. For example, if you need a new end table you could buy a wood one, to match all the other wooden furniture in your living room. You could also buy a marble topped table to stand out and create a focal point for the room. The choice is yours.

What Does Your Furniture Need To Do?

The next thing to ask yourself is 'what do I need this furniture to do?' With a lot of pieces, it's obvious. The bookcase is to hold all your favorite books. The entertainment center is to house your TV and entertainment equipment. However, some items need to be more specific. Take your sofa, for example. Do people stay over often? Then you may need a sofa that converts into a guest bed. Your consoles and cabinets may need to have doors on them, to stop small children reaching items they shouldn't be touching. Everyone's needs are different, so what your living room furniture needs will be unique to you.

The Living Room Essentials

Ok, now that you've done some planning and thought about your personal living room needs, it's time to shop. Here are some of the most popular items we sell here, and what you need to consider when picking yours.
  • Sofas: The heart of every living room is the sofa. There's a huge amount of choice when it comes to them, so you can let your imagination run riot. Get something in a bold print to make a statement, or get a leatherette one for a classic touch.
  • Entertainment centers: For those who take entertainment seriously, this is essential. You need room for your TV, gaming consoles, stereo, and all of your DVDs and games. The right entertainment center is roomy enough without taking over the whole room.
  • Occasional and end tables: These are often forgotten, but they're essential in any living room. After all, you need somewhere to put your drink or the station for the remote controls! You can use them as a decorative feature too if you pair them with a pretty plant or ornament.
