Purchasing new furniture for your home can be an exciting and joyous experience, especially if you have opened a new chapter in your life and moved into a new space. However, choosing new furniture can be a big decision, that requires a lot of time and money.

Interior furnishings can be make or break when transforming a house into the home of your dreams. Before you embark on your search for boutique furniture, it is important to assess what sort of thing you like so that your home interior can accurately reflect your individuality, and embellish your haven with unique character and comfort.
Here are some effective ways of determining an interior style suited to you:
Pick Your Favourite Colors: Decide upon some colors and tones that bring you comfort and happiness. From here, you can create a color palette and discover compatible combinations.
Ask Yourself If You Are A Maximalist Or A Minimalist: If you wear lots of bright colors and patterns you are probably a maximalist. Whereas if your clothes are more simplistic and monochromatic, then you are most likely a minimalist.
Create A Mood Board: If you spot a color or pattern that resonates with you, stick it onto a mood board. Over time you will accumulate a collection of inspiration, and develop an aesthetic.
You can create a digital mood board using Pinterest, which is free to download on any smart-device.
The most effective way of setting a realistic budget is by assessing how much disposable income you have. Once you evaluate this, you will be able to have a clearer outline of how much you can spend.
If you tend to struggle with organizing your finances, there are many apps and softwares that can help you. Goodbudget is a fantastic free smartphone budgeting app that allows you to sync your bank account and track your spending.
It is easy to get side-tracked when shopping for furniture, especially with all the smart algorithms that are designed to lure you in. To prevent unnecessary spending make a list of all the essentials that are imperative to your comfort.
Once you have purchased all your necessary furniture, you can begin to add some finer details, such as home accents, to further elevate your room. At Mojo Boutique, we have an array of delicately handcrafted home décor that will fill your space with a gracious ambience.
It is essential to ensure the furniture you purchase won't take up too much space, as this can make your home feel congested. On the flip side, you also want to make sure you choose items that are large enough, to prevent feelings of emptiness.
By taking measurements, you can better understand the scale of your room, and determine appropriate dimensions. This will provide your home with a balanced environment that is comfortable to live in.
Searching through irrelevant items can be time consuming and frustrating. To save you the headache of manually filtering out items that don't relate to your search, you must be as specific as possible.
Here are some helpful pointers that will optimize your online search:
Include your desired colors
Familiarize yourself with specific design styles / materials to include in your search (i.e. "oak wood farmhouse cabinet")
Specify measurements / relevant dimensions
Online shopping is widely recognized as a preferred method of consumption because it is easy and convenient. However, with an alarming rise of fraudulent websites, online shopping has grown to become a little scary. Before you trust any website with your card details, be sure to verify that they are a legitimate online boutique.
These are a few of the key things to look out for when verifying a site:
Verify The Site With Google Transparency Report: By searching the sites URL into this platform, Google can tell you whether or not it is trustworthy.
Check Their Reviews On Trustpilot: Many fake sites will post fake testimonials. If you feel suspicious of a certain shop, search them up on Trustpilot. This will allow you to see honest reviews from real people.
Review Contact Details: If the site does not include a real address, contact number and email address, it is highly likely that you are on a fake website.
