Baer’s Furniture Reviews: Get a Clear Picture of the Furniture Buying Experience

Digital marketing has changed a lot about how businesses interact with their customers, but some things have remained the same. A good example of something that hasn’t changed in the digital age is the importance of word-of-mouth advertising. Even in the information age, most people make decisions based on reviews they read online or on social media. Online reviews are the newest iteration of word of mouth.

The importance of online reviews has increased as people become more distrustful of traditional advertising. Whether they know the reviewer, 69% of local customers trust online reviews as much as recommendations from a friend, and 84% of shoppers in the U.S. use reviews to help them make their decision.

Baer’s Furniture Reviews: Trust and Authority

Word of mouth has traditionally been one of the best ways for local businesses to build trust and authority with their customers. But, with consumers increasingly turning to online research to influence their purchasing decisions, online reviews play an important role. They are the equivalent of word of mouth advertising. And with more consumers searching on mobile, local business reviews can mean the difference between someone stopping into your business or bypassing it completely.

Let’s begin with some statistics*.
  • 90% of consumers read online reviews before visiting a business
  • 88% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations
  • 72% of customers say that positive reviews make them trust a local business more

1) Balance the Old and the New

When decorating a home that already has plenty of character, it’s important to strike a balance between adding new elements and keeping old ones. You don’t want to get rid of its character completely, but rather enhance it with right mix of furnishings and accessories. The Bungalow Seven-Piece Dining Set by Paula Deed for Universal complements the architectural features of the room. The modern light fixture adds an element of surprise.

Gray Bedroom Ideas That Are Anything but Gloomy

Gray is often dismissed as a drab, dull, and unemotional color. However, this versatile color can blend with warm hues to create a laid-back space, play with pops of bright colors and patterns for a playful space, or take over a room for a cool, sophisticated look. When done right, gray can have a startlingly beautiful impact in your interior décor.

A blend of black and white, gray is by definition of neutral. Decorating with gray can be bright and beautiful, dark and dramatic, and warm or cool. If you don’t want white walls, but want to keep your space bright, pale gray is a great way to do so. Alternatively, if you want a fresh take on the architectural details found in a traditional home, a dark gray can make them really stand out.

Relax: Incorporating a Leather Recliner into Your Decor Is Easier Than You Think

Our lives get pretty busy and sometimes we forget to slow down and recharge. There just seems to be so much to get done.

So take a deep breath and remember that sometimes it is okay to slow your roll and take it easy.

Recliners have a bad rep for being chunky, clunky, and hard to decorate around. Yet, they are sooo comfortable.

Spice Up Your Interior Décor with the Color Red

Red is the color of love, but if you love it too much, you may be seeing red all over your house. Red can be happy and cheery or angry and aggressive, and everywhere in between. That’s something you need to remember when using red in your room décor. But how do you know when too much red is too much, and when it is not enough?

You can use red as an accent color in everything from candles to lighting to walls and pillows. Accents of red can bring attention to other elements in a room that you might not otherwise notice. The idea is to intrigue, entice, and invite without hitting you over the head cave-man style and dragging you in.

Although red can make a room pop (I’m still lobbying for a red sofa in my home), too much red can be too much. When it comes to this passionate color of love, less is often just enough.

When deciding on what shade of red to use in your home, take into consideration your decorating style. Red is a color that needs to be used mindfully, and choosing the right shade is part of the process.

How to Choose the Right Area Rug for Your Space

There are many good reasons to add an area rug to your décor. They provide cushioning, comfort, and warmth on a wood, tile, or concrete floor. You can even layer them over carpeting to add some artistic flair to a room’s design. Some even consider area rugs artwork for the floor. However, adding the right area rug to a space is often a big concern when you are trying to create a well-balanced room.

Some designers say to start with the area rug first, and match the rest of the décor to it. While this method has its benefits – you can select paint colors, throw pillows, and artwork to go with the area rug – it isn’t always practical.

Whether you choose your area rug before or after you choose the rest of your décor, just remember this general rule: your area rug should be at least 6 inches from the wall and no more than 2 feet away from it. Follow the tips below to choose the right area rug for your space.

However, this pretty color can be used to add some color and sophistication to your home without overwhelming it. So, let’s jump right in and discuss how you can use it in your home.

5 Creative Ways to Incorporate Collections into Your Interior Design

Whatever you collect, it does you no good if it is hidden away in a box. Finishing a room with a handful – or more – of personal treasures adds a little bit of your personality to the space. However, incorporating collections into your design is as much a science as it is an art.

How to Add the Color Green to Your Interior Décor

Elegant and calming or bright and dynamic, green color schemes always feel fresh and natural. They can be used to create soothing backgrounds or to accentuate existing interior design. Greens are so versatile that they can be used for any room or outdoor space. When combined with yellows, blues, whites, and browns, they can turn your rooms into elegant, tranquil, and harmonious spaces.

Experiment with Different Greens

Try on a few different greens for size. The best way to do this is to add some green to your accessories. This means some green throw pillows or a small area rug. One fun way to add a little green if you have a neutral bedroom is to use them on your bed linens.

For example, this room's relaxing decor is brightened by the mix of greens and blues on the Seabrooke Queen Panel Bed by Broyhill. The creamy white finish on the bed lets the colors take center stage while the arched headboard and louvered shutter design maintain a soothing look and feel.

Pair Greens with Gray Tones for Natural Softness

While using bright green colors and creamy white gives a space an airy feel, shades of gray also work well with bright greens. From dark grays to platinum and light gray, this color imbues a space with natural softness. Whether you choose green furniture pieces or green on the walls, this color combination adds a serene feel to your interior. Up the ante by adding white accents to create a bold, elegant, and beautiful space.

Green Mixed with Neutral Browns and White

Green looks gorgeous with browns and white. This color combination gives your rooms an optimistic and happy environment. It’s hard to be depressed surrounded by a beautiful green accent wall that highlights the stylish white leather sofa. The brown throw pillows and dark wood furniture give the room fresh, elegant appeal.

Green palettes that include neutral colors are ideal for small and large rooms. Area rugs, curtains, pillows and accessories can add as little or as much green as you want to the space. A touch of green can bring a natural, fresh feel to your interior design.
