There are so many decisions to make when you are renovating that it brings up the question, when should you decide on your furniture? Many people leave this decision until after the renovation is completed or just about done.


The actual best time to complete your furniture planning is before you even begin to renovate. The next best time is as early as possible.


I just had a customer experience that brings up this very point. She had begun her basement renovation and was at the basic stud wall stage when we began planning how she wanted to use her room. Once we discussed how she wanted to use the space, how many people would be using the room, how many different functions, she realized that her original plan would not work and she would have hated the results. In order to avoid frustration after all that effort and money, she took the opportunity to redo her original plan.


Now as this customer chooses her colours and actual furniture pieces it will all work just the way she dreamed it would. As with all projects, looking from the end result back towards the starting point will give you your best results.


Talk to your Smitty's representative about your project. We are trained to help you plan the space exactly the way you want to use it, before you ever spend a penny or begin construction.
