HOW TO DO ONLINE FURNITURE SHOPPING

Is it really possible to have a 250 USD KING SIZE bed made with the finest materials to be shipped to your home within 24 hrs??

Yes it is!!! But only if you know where to look for...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Recently , I have been going through a lot of online shopping experience for my clients. So, TRUST ME, once you start enjoying it, it becomes irresistible!!!

Clearly , online shopping has both advantages and disadvantages.

But if you compare the downsides with what you achieve in such a short period of time, you will see that the act is priceless!!!

Let's say, you want to buy a fancy dresser and you have been looking for it forever! First of all,showrooms can only display limited number of pieces and then again, you might not even have the store you are looking for anywhere near you.

Isn't that why almost all bestseller furniture stores also have online shopping 👀

That is when online shopping steps in ,with its limitless number of websites displaying tons of furniture options and their prices.

Yes, with their prices!!! This fact by itself is a winner! Don't tell me that you have never been to a store where you could not even come close to asking the price for a tiny piece of furniture ⁉️⁉️

Plus,do you ever think about how long it takes to wait for a sales representative to ask her if a piece is in stock or not ,or if it comes in a different colour and size?

Now that's where online shopping wins again👍🏻

Also, NEVER FORGET:a website cannot make a mistake with the number of items in stock or a detailed measurement.The only disappointing experience can sometimes be the lack of information on a product.To avoid that, I use trustworthy web sources with adequate product details.

Of course, seeing it real can never be as satisfying as seeing it on screen, but when you add up all the advantages, online shopping is priceless!

Besides, nowadays when TIME is such a great treasure, who can deny the act of buying a client's furniture in minutes without even planning for a scheduled store visit?

Now,I must confess that my favourite furniture cruising time is at night in my pjs 😊So stay relaxed and click away whenever and however you like for furniture of any size and price without waiting in line...

TIPS TO RESTYLE YOUR CEILINGS

Are you looking for inventive ways to style your home? Do you want to spruce up the look without accenting your walls?

Ceilings come in different sizes and shapes.Most houses usually have plain ones with coats of paint or even popcorn ceilings which almost any tasteful person would immediately upgrade.The major perspective for decision making is the height of your ceiling.High ceilings are in general an object of desire.Yet, you might want to scale it down for a cozy and complete look.

By the way, worship a ceiling if it withholds history! Luckily throughout the years I have come across such ceilings especially in restoration projects. For the FRESCO BRAUNSTEIN project, I clearly remember how thrilled I was when looking for a talent to restore the cracked painting.

Short ceilings can also be very attractive when tailored right! You might fear that they will be overwhelming when you restyle them. But don't worry because dressing your ceiling is going to give your space more depth instead! So , I would suggest you to go for figured wallpapers ,maybe mirrored tiles or even mix of colors! Just make sure you do not bring down the height with extra suspended beams or decorative features.

Some ceilings come with structural features on their own! They might be decorative enough or you can restyle a little with easy touch ups! I recommend painting if you want to expose the structure.Or you can even restore and leave them bare to honor the architectural elements .

DO NOT FORGET that attractions radiating from the center generally expand the room size whereas side trims set boundaries to your space.
