    Decorating your home office: The dos and don’ts

    Your home office is one of the most difficult places to decorate in your entire house. Finding the right balance to promote efficiency and a generally good working environment with making it a comfortable and pleasant place to work is incredibly tricky.

    Most of us chose to work from home for the comfort and convenience it provides, but somewhere too homely does not promote the correct environment for working well. However, what’s the point of working from home if it’s strictly professional?!

    The very nature of the home office can be difficult to achieve, but if you follow a few simple dos and don’ts, you’re sure to have an area where you’ll love to work, in no time at all!

    Do choose a light space

    No amount of decorating can create what a well-lit space can provide. One of the worst aspects of working in an office can be the lack of access to a window, so make the most of your home by choosing a south or west facing room to get as much natural light throughout the working day as possible.

    Don’t treat it as a room add-on

    Unless you’re incredibly short of space, or use your computer solely for social purposes, avoid ‘adding’ an office element to a current room, especially in the bedroom, living room or kitchen. These areas are full of distractions and blur the work-home lines too much.

    Do make the most of your wall space

    It’s very easy to forget about your wall space, but this is realistically the area of the room where you can have the most fun. A statement wall behind or facing the desk is an easy-to-achieve look, while artwork provides inspiration and mirrors promote light and space in smaller rooms.

    Don’t neglect your chair

    Your office chair is the most important piece of furniture you’ll need to buy when setting up a home office, so do not underestimate the importance of getting this right. Design is certainly important, but comfort should be the number one factor here as you’ll be sitting on it all day, every day.

    Do think about storage

    It’s easy to forget how much admin can be involved in working, and as such you may choose design over function. There are plenty of beautiful pieces of furniture that can provide great design for your office, whilst also fulfilling your storage needs.

    Don’t forget to have fun

    One of the true joys of working from home is being able to create a space that works for you, and that in itself is the primary thing to remember. Have fun with the space and create something that you can’t wait to work in every morning.

    The Truth Behind The Fake Sale

    Large chain furniture stores have long been renowned for their huge sales, slashed prices and big discounts. Last year, The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) discovered that sales that offered customers furniture at a hugely knocked down price were simply designed to mislead their customers – allowing them to believe that they were buying a bargain.
    By advertising the original price alongside the new, discounted price, suggested to customers that they would be making a huge saving. The OFT discovered that 95% of these supposedly discounted products had never been on sale at the original price and as a result, many big retailers were penalised.

    But what do people really think about furniture sales? With the next big sale just around the corner, we put our questions to the nation. If you’re thinking about hitting the sales this Easter, you might be surprised by what our survey revealed.

    Quality versus price

    When it comes to choosing furniture, there are a number of different things to take into account, from whether the items will complement the décor in your home to knowing the furniture is good quality. In addition, cost also has to be taken into consideration, yet 46% of those in our survey felt that price was the main focus of furniture store advertisements.

    Of those who took part in our survey, the majority didn’t feel that large retailers had good quality sales. Most of those taking part in the survey believed that stores that had sales much less frequently were of a better quality and 25% agreed that the best prices for furniture were more likely to be found online.

    Being savvy in the Easter sales

    Easter is just around the corner and with it comes another huge sale. With consumers now being aware of ‘fake prices’ (known as reference prices), how many feel prepared to challenge the information they are given in-store? According to our survey, 75% admitted that they had never enquired about a reference price on an item of sale furniture.

    Surprisingly, just over 47% of Brits have attempted haggling to get a full priced piece of furniture at a discount rate. Furthermore, nearly 85% of those who have tried their hand at haggling have successfully purchased their piece of furniture at a knocked down price. However, when it comes to sale items, just less than 33% have had any success in getting a discount on a sale item.

    Research versus impulse buying

    The aim of many large sales at chain retail outlets is to encourage customers to make a quick decision, in case they miss out on a bargain. The idea is to drive customers into making a decision on impulse, rather than allowing them the time to shop around.

    When it comes to shopping for a good deal and the perfect piece of furniture, how savvy are those who are hitting the sales? Our survey revealed that just over 52% would not shop around if they found a piece of furniture in the sale, fearing that they would miss out on a bargain.

    However, many customers are growing steadily savvier in their approach to buying furniture for their home. Our survey revealed that almost half of those taking part did research online, comparing prices and customer reviews on quality before they decided to make a purchase.

    In-store experience

    Shopping in-store has garnered quite the reputation over the years. In 2011, Mary Portas attacked the attitude of sales assistants in big name sofa retailers. We asked the nation what the worst part of furniture shopping in-store was. 46% agreed that pushy sales assistants hindered their in-store shopping experience, while just over three-quarters admitted that they didn’t trust sales assistants to tell them the truth.

    In addition, limited availability of stock, crowded stores and poor parking facilities were all negative aspects of the overall in-store furniture shopping experience.

    The truth behind the sales

    Rob Walters, Head of eCommerce at The Furniture Market, comments, “The Furniture Market don’t believe in pressurising our customers into buying furniture they don’t want, or cheating them on price, which is why we never have large-scale sales or unbelievable discounts on our products. Our offers or promotions although rare, are always “genuine” such as the time-restricted 5% off voucher code over the Easter period. Although 5% is not as attractive as 50% we are offering 5% off what are already usually a lower prices than those that can be found in the stores and on the websites of major furniture retailers.  We have a ‘one price – best price’ policy so the price you see is our best offer without the dubious trickery of a 50%+ discount”.

    Number 1 for furniture on Trustpilot

    Number 1 best in category bade from trustpilot

    Number 1 on Trustpilot for Furniture, Bedroom and office furniture categories

    Back in 2011 we started using the Trustpilot service and integrated real life reviews into our website.

    In February 2014 we now find ourselves number 1 in the furniture category with a score currently of 9.8 We are also number 1 in the bedroom and office furniture category also.

    Our Trustpilot score and reviews mean a lot to us here at The Furniture Market. When you read some of the other reviews of competitors online you really get a sense of just how bad some companies can be.

    Typically I find that the companies with the worst reviews are often the biggest. With national television campaigns and huge show rooms up and down the country. Worse still is these companies usually either never respond to bad reviews or even worse the immediately report bad reviews to Trustpilot in order to cover up complaints. I think this is bad business and is somewhat deceitful.

    The Furniture Market is not a perfect company, cheesy as it sounds we are a small enough company to care about every order yet big enough to sell furniture at a lower price. Each order still matters to us, we know you have a choice when shopping online and we hope that when you see pages like our newly revamped about us page it gives you a sense of who we are and what we are about.

    Our strategy is simple, have no shops, no salesmen trying to sell you pots of wax and insurance on your furniture. What this means to you is that we pass the savings of not having these costs, on to you meaning you will typically find any comparable piece of furniture you see elsewhere cheaper with us.

    We are always adding more and more pictures of our items online because we know that in order for you to feel comfortable spending hundreds of pounds online you need to see high quality lifestyle images in our purpose built studio which is now one year old. We always want to do better with the products we are proud to offer for sale.

    A lot of people when they consider shopping online want to know about how easy it is to send items back. Lots of companies do a lot to woo you to get the sale and you only generally find out how good a company is when something goes wrong. What happens then? if you look around online at some companies bad reviews, you will see that some companies go as far as to tell their own customers they are not welcome to shop with them ever again if they return an item. How can that be good for business? Anyway we have made a video of how to return items to us and explain just how easy it is.

    When something needs to be returned all we ask is you send us some pictures of whats wrong with the item or if you have simply changed your mind that’s fine just print out our returns form then contact us to arrange collection. There is just a £30 collection charge from us to cover the costs of delivery and collection in this case.

    Hopefully if you can see things are easy to return to us it will help you trust us enough to give us a try and place an order with us. If you do and you like our service and products then we hope that you will be kind enough to one day leave a nice 5 star review for us at Trustpilot, they do mean a lot to us and we read every one of them.

    Colour Trend – Navy

    We are taking a look at one of the hottest colour trends to hit the interior design world this season – Navy!

    Far from being the dark and mundane colour that some people consider it to be, Navy can be a sophisticated and glamorous alternative to black and can be styled in a wide range of contemporary and classic interiors. Bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms and hallways; this wonderful colour trend will elegantly transform any room in your home.

    For all original images and amazing Navy inspired, interior ideas check out our latest Pinterest board Pinterest – Navy Colour Trend

    Colour palettes


    Navy is a fabulously versatile colour choice that features a vast range of shades to suit all interior tastes. From rich Royal blues to fresh nautical hues, navy can create a strong feature colour that will be the focal point of your interior or a opulent accent colour for a splash of regal accessorising in your home interior.


    Why not put your own stamp on this years popular monochrome trend by adopting a navy and white scheme instead of traditional black. Navy also works brilliantly well with strong and vibrant colours such as Pink, Yellow and Green as well as illuminating metallic tones such as Silver and Gold for an glamorous renaissance style ambiance.







    Navy accessories are the perfect way to add a splash of colour into a neutral interior. Navy works particularly well against white to give a bright and vibrant interior feel. Oriental Blue vase patterns have made a massive comeback this season and can be used to accessorise a white painted console table or bedside or can be adopted as wall art to create a visually stunning focal point in your home. Navy fabrics also work well in geometric patters and clashing colours for a real eye-catching interior addition.


    Walls and Floors

    Wall panelling and bold wallpaper has become increasingly popular this season and when combined with the Navy colour trend can produce truly stunning results. Navy panelling channels the regal, period styles of grand manor houses whilst a bold navy patterned or floral wallpaper can give a slightly more contemporary feel to your interior. If you don’t fancy adopting a dark colour on your walls then why not take it down to the floor? Navy tiles, painted floorboards, carpets and rugs can give a fabulously luxurious pop of colour whilst keeping your walls neutral and bright.




    When selecting furniture for your navy interior you can opt for complimentary colours in matching shades of navy or contrasting colours for a definition of colour and tone. Navy painted furniture looks beautiful against white neutral walls and fits wonderfully with a range of Navy accessories and fabrics so that the furniture becomes the centrepiece of your home. As an opposite choice then why not concentrate your navy colours to your walls and emphasise your colour palette with neutral white painted furniture for a bright and crisp interior finish that is sophisticated and chic.
