Thanks to Bassett Furniture for making this room makeover post possible by providing a free room design consultation. No other compensation was received, all opinions are my own.
As you all know, we recently moved into a new house. That means a fresh start. A chance to redecorate. We have many options for giving each room a room makeover. But I really have no experience in redecorating. This is the first time I have felt such a desire to create a comfortable; yet stylish living space for our family. And I’m ready to get started on multiple room makeover projects! The first room is definitely our sitting room!
Sitting Room Makeover
Our sitting room is the first room you see as you enter our house. I want this room to be welcoming and inviting. Yet still a great place where we can go and relax. Curl up with a book; or have a great time visiting with friends in comfort, without distractions from electronics. I have run into a few snags on styling this room. Thankfully Brooke from Bassett furniture came to my rescue.
Bassett Furniture is located here in the Wasatch front of Utah. They offer high end furniture that offers a level of quality you can’t find elsewhere. All furniture structures come with a limited time warranty. For parts made internationally they offer a 3 year warranty and for domestic there is a 7 year warranty. You can also add additional warranty on all other aspects of the furniture like the fabric and cushioning.
And you definitely want to check in with them often; as they offer new sales bi-weekly to help you save on the most amazing furniture! They have a few select pieces from our sitting room makeover that I absolutely love for this room!
My biggest struggle with our sitting room is that I have no special aptitude for gauging space. I see the room and I imagine furniture in it. But then what I imagine doesn’t work cause the couch is a lot bigger than I imagine it to be. I see furniture that I love but I don’t know if it will actually fit in my room how I want it. That is where Brooke came to my rescue. Bassett furniture offers free home design consultation for those who are serious about purchasing Bassett furniture.
Now that is a big deal. All of the Bassett Furniture designers are trained and certified for home decor. They go through rigorous training so they really know how to create a home design and pull pieces together. They aren’t a regular furniture sales team that you find at most home furniture sites. They really know what they are talking about and want to make sure you get the right pieces for the right space in your home.
Brooke did all the hard work form me. She visited my home and took measurements of the room so she could get an exact layout. She took pictures of the coloring and then presented me with some options that actually would work with real measurements!
While she was measuring I was busy looking through the Bassett furniture catalog. My job was to find pieces that I liked that she could stage in the floor plan, so I could see how it would look like in real life. Let me tell you they have a lot of gorgeous pieces of furniture! And all very high quality. None of this silly cheap pressed board furniture we have accumulated from thrift stores throughout our lives.
This appointment took very little time. She was in and out in about 15 minutes. It’s a great service that the designers from Bassett furniture offer to the customers who are ready to purchase Bassett furniture.
A week later we had an appointment to see the presentation. Brooke had gone back to her office to use the measurements and the pieces of furniture I circled in the catalog and her pictures of the colors of the house to create a beautiful design.
At our presentation appointment, I was shown how we could stage the room to make it more inviting. To welcome our company in a fashionable way yet still be comfortable. And I got to see how the room would look in a floor plan with each piece and how to set it up. I also got to see the different fabric options in the couch and chairs and also different color options for the room.
She featured the stylish accent chairs framing the window with a possible side table with lamp for softer lighting in the evenings. My favorite lit up top table for a coffee table that has a top that pulls up for use with a laptop! I absolutely LOVE that feature. And she even included a few key items we want to keep in our room such as the piano and curio cabinet. We only have a keyboard right now; but that will eventually be upgraded to a Clavinova or a regular piano. So it was great to see how those pieces would fit into the room as well.
We had a great experience with Bassett Furniture on our project to give our sitting room the room makeover it deserves. I especially love the approach to using blues and greens and natural colors to blend our current paint and the beautiful painting I got while we lived in Germany that I would love to hang in the room.
Every piece selected and placed by Brooke for our room makeover was perfect for pulling the room together and making it feel comfortable and inviting.
