Apartment Decorating Made Easy

wooden furniture in AustinSummertime is a great time to refresh your interiors, and at Primitives, we want to help you by providing a great selection of home accents and furniture pieces that are sure to serve as quality, lifetime investments in your home. However, if you're not looking to buy something new, or if you want to try a different way of updating your favorite furniture, you can always try some of these great methods:

Fresh Coats
Refinishing or repainting your wood furniture can be a great way to update its look and prepare it for a new life in your home. If you own an old, scratched up piece (but it’s still strong and sturdy), get creative and utilize fun paint colors or even mosaic detailing to give it new life.

New Fabric
Sofas, chairs, and ottomans can all be refreshed by getting them reupholstered. You can seek a professional or even give it a try on your own. For your bedroom and dining room, seek some fresh bedding, new tablecloths, and napkins. Curtains can also help bring the look together.

Kick up your current wooden furniture in Austin by choosing new accent pieces that make the room pop. Pillows, curtains, and area rugs are just a few accent pieces that can help revive that old sofa or give your faded hallway the new look it needs.

A Smart Move: Investing in New, Quality Furniture

But contrary to what some believe, choosing high quality furniture is typically a smarter investment, even with a higher price tag.

When you buy your furniture second-hand, remember that each piece has already experienced some wear and tear, which means the overall life of your investment is much shorter than when buying new. Not to mention, many pieces may have imperfections or problems you may not notice until you get home, and we're sure that most yard sales don't have a great return policy.

Overall, high quality furniture is a much smarter, longer lasting investment. When you shop at our Austin furniture store, you're getting a longer life expectancy out of your selections. You’re also paying for more durable fabrics, classic styling, and sturdy constructions that are perfect for growing with you and your family. Plus it saves you from having to throw out your furniture in just a few years and invest in a whole new set.

Do your home a favor; Invest in new, reliable furniture and get the quality you need for many years to come.
