#BuyersGuide: Tips For Buying A Sectional

Sectional buying can be a daunting task if you are new to the game. What size do I need? What If I move ? Do I need to have a huge room for it to fit? We hope this post helps clarify some questions you may have and gives you the nudge you need to make that big decision.

Whether you are  custom ordering from a store in person or ordering online, you will come across terminology that may be confusing. Sectional components mostly consist of Right arm facing (RAF), Left arm facing (LAF), corner pieces, chaises or armless pieces. Right or left arm facing means that when you are looking at the sectional, the arm is on the right or left. An armless piece is useful to connect your LAF or RAF end pieces or add length to your piece and chaise lounges add an L-shaped length without the extra cushions.

Contrary to popular belief. you do not need a huge space for a sectional to work. Actually, a sectional may be the solution to that small awkward space you can’t seem to figure out. A large piece of furniture in a small space can actually anchor the space and help it seem bigger! Eliminating multiple pieces of furniture and using a sectional to accommodate all of your seating needs will make for a cozier, softer space. Here are a couple of examples:

The sectional above features a left arm facing love seat and right arm facing chaise. A sofa with a chaise is a great option for a small space.

This sectional is traditional L-shaped with a RAF love seat and LAF sofa with return.

Before you start shopping, measure your space and draw out a floor plan! You need to know exactly how much room you have to work with, especially because the majority of sectional purchases are special orders and non-returnable. You want to take note of your high traffic areas, point of entrance and all doors and openings. Sectionals are great, but if you are blocking your entrances and flow of traffic, it may not be the best option for your space.

Think you will be moving in a few years? Maybe you should consider a modular sectional. These versatile pieces allow you to add and subtract any number of pieces to fit your space perfectly. See an example of a modular sectional below:

This 8 piece sectional can be modified to be smaller or in a different configuration very easily. See it with all of its pieces here:

Try not to become overwhelmed, find your measurements, and head to Turner’s so a designer can help you find the perfect sectional. We are confident that a sectional can quickly add functionality, comfort, and style that few other furnishings can provide.

#BuyersGuide: Why is my sofa so expensive?

Today’s furniture buying experience is much like buying a new car. You may want to find the best deal on a car regardless the brand, or you know you want the top of the line, so you expect to spend more money. We all know that the top of the line vehicle is going to have the best construction, highest safety ratings, and longer warranty. However, we seemed to be blinded by furniture quality.  That being said, all furniture is not made equally. The sofa you find at Target for $399 is not going to be the same quality as the sofa at a fine furniture store for $3000. There is a reason why a sofa is priced so high, and we would like to explain and justify that difference today.

It all starts with the frame:

1. A top of the line sofa starts with a solid hard wood like walnut, maple, or oak. Then, the wood is Kiln dried, which eliminates all of the excess moisture in the wood, resulting in a strong product that will not bow or bend over time.

2. That wood is then doubled doweled and glued to each other to create stability and a structurally sound product. In some cases, the wood is cut to interlock with each other, then it is glued together. Corner blocks are triple reinforced with staples, glue and screws to create strong joints that will not loosen over time.

3. There are several different types of spring units that could be added to a frame, but an 8-way hand tied spring system is by far the strongest, most resilient type of support. High gauge spring coil units are dropped into the frame, then hand tied with twine 8 different directions to themselves and to the frame. This creates a unit that distributes weight evenly and keeps the coils from shifting, which eliminates sagging in the frame.

4. The next step in creating a strong piece of furniture includes the added foam for frame protection and comfort. In a high quality frame, there is a strong molded foam lining the edges of the piece to create a sharp look and reduce the risk of the foam breaking down. Then layers of polyester foam will wrap around the frame. Your fabric is then backed and added to the top layer.

Most high end manufactures will have a variety of cushions to choose based on comfort and quality. In brands like Wesley Hall and Taylor King, a high end cushion consists of a molded polyester foam, encased spring coils, memory foam, and/or blend down fill. All of these options have been carefully thought out to make sure the lifetime of your cushion outlasts the competitors. Not only can you customize your cushions, but you have the choice of hundreds of different high end fabrics to fit your personal style and lifestyle.

These are just a few of the reasons why a sofa can be so expensive. But, we believe that investing on an heirloom quality piece will pay for itself in the long run. When buying a sofa based on the price, you may find yourself replacing the sofa every couple of years due to its quality.

So, the next time you are in the store and have a little sticker shock, ask your salesperson to explain to you the quality difference and you will understand why we take pride in well thought out pieces that will last a lifetime.

#DesignDilemma: How do I hang my curtains?

Curtains are such a  common design disaster and you may not even know something is wrong! Let’s go over how to hang your curtains properly, and why these examples work to your advantage. But first, we will address what you may be doing wrong.

1. Hanging your curtains too low:

How to fix it:

Make sure to hang your curtain rod at least 20″ above your window molding OR hang right beneath your crown molding. This creates height and allows more light to enter the room.

2. Hanging your curtains to fit the frame of the window is another common mistake. You want to make sure you are hanging your curtain rod about 8″ out on either side. That way, when you open your curtains, you will displaying the entire window frame!

Combine the first two tips and hang your curtains HIGH AND WIDE. Creating the illusion of a wide and tall window will make your room transform!

3.  Still not seeing results? Your curtains may be too short!

 

You want to make sure your drapes are either “kissing” the floor, resting on the floor, or puddled for a romantic look. See the diagram below for reference:

 

Image from I Dream of Drapery

Follow these few rules and you will be on the way to curtain success!

#BuyersGuide: Why should I invest in outdoor furniture?

 

When it comes to picking a perfect outdoor set, the look is important, but durability is essential. It’s tempting to stop by your local hardware store to pick up an inexpensive outdoor set, but is it worth it? In this week’s Buyers Guide, we will cover the top reasons why it is in your best interest to invest in quality and to justify those high price tags.

You’re not alone when you wonder, ” why would I spend this much on outdoor furniture when I can buy the same thing at Lowes or Home Depot?”. You are right in the fact that you can get similar looking pieces for cheaper- but you are not getting the same thing at all. In fact, you will end up spending more money on the cheap stuff over time, because you will have to replace it- multiple times.

High end outdoor furniture manufactures think of YOU from the very beginning of construction.  For this post, we will feature one of Turner’s top selling brands- Summer Classics. Listed below are the reasons why it is priced the way it is, and why you should definitely invest.

1.  Cast Aluminum- Superior grade molten aluminum alloy is hand poured into a mold made from exceptionally detailed woodcarvings. Each casting is hand polished to provide a smooth, finished surface for painting. After a multi-step cleaning process, the furniture receives a baked on powder paint coast much thicker and harder than conventional wet paint, followed by a hand-applied antique accent.

This is just the FRAME of the sofa you are looking at in our store. Keep reading to find out what comes next.

2. N-dura Ultra High UV Resistant Resin Wicker- This resin wicker is guaranteed to not experience any significant color change for 5 years. Their ultra realistic resin varies in color and texture, making each piece unique. All N-dura wicker is memory tested to 50,000 compressions, and is hand-woven over steel-reinforced  heavy gauge aluminum extrusions with a triple antique hand applied fish using nano-ceramic technology.  Unlike wood wicker, this material will stay pliable and not dry out and break.

3. Cushions- Summer classic’s standard cushion is composed of bonded fiber layers on top of polyurethane foam, making them exceptionally comfortable. The ratio of foam to fiber is 50% to 50% once core in inserted into the fabric cushion slip.

Upgrade to their Dream cushion and see the difference! This cushion offers 1.8 density high resilient and California Fire Rated Foam for maximum comfort. Their woven, water-resistant jacket features a “pillow top” of blown-fiber channels providing the utmost quality and softness. Soft, durable, and water-resistant, this is truly the perfect cushion.

4. Fabric-  The standard fabric used on all of our products features 100% solution-dyed acrylic. Each fiber is color saturated from the inside out for a rich, fade resistant color thats lasts even in extreme conditions. These fabrics are fade resistant, water resistant, and mold resistant. Clean these fabrics with a mixture of soap and water, or bleach and water and they are good as new.

Upgrade to a rain fabric and be amazed! This fabric is 100% water resistant and dries immediately when blotted with a towel. The water will never permeate your cushions so you can enjoy a comfortable, dry sofa all day long!

Even though we focused on Summer Classics, all of our top selling brands feature similar quality traits and are guaranteed to stand the test of time. You will save money in the long run and be happier with your purchase, we promise!

Just remember, there is a reason our products are priced the way they are. Just like you’ve always heard- ” You get what you pay for!”

 

Save on Summer Classics now until March 31st! See your sales associate for more details.

The results are in!  Congratulations to Patricia Gillean, the March winner of a $5,000 Turner Furniture gift certificate. She registered to win at Turner’s Budget Furniture in Valdosta. She wanted the $5,000 matching donation from Turner’s to go to a charity that helps people with Autism, so she selected Easter Seals Southern Georgia.

Thanks again to everyone who participated. If you didn’t win in March, please come back in to one of our stores and register for the April drawing. Remember, each month is a new drawing, and we’ll be giving away $10,000 in free furniture and $10,000 cash to qualified local charities. For additional information about the giveaway, click here.
