When we were able to move into our own home about two years ago, I was so excited! One of the things for which I was most excited was to be able to decorate my house in the way I wanted to and to be able to make it a home. Shortly after moving in, we furnished our house with new furniture and appliances and made a few updates. After a few months though, we got so busy that a lot of our projects got put on hold.
I am the type of person that doesn’t like to keep things the same for long. I have changed the layout of our bedroom at least 3 times since moving in and our family room has changed as well. Of course, changing things around and updating so often can mean that we have to spend more money than we should sometimes. Since we try to save our money whenever possible, I always am looking for new places to shop to get things that we want at an affordable cost.
Updating furniture can be one of the most expensive parts of changing the look of a house, so we tend to keep the same furniture for awhile. Recently, however, we have been thinking about getting a few new pieces of furniture to update our living room. That is where CORT Clearance Centers enters the picture. Until just a few weeks ago I had never heard of CORT Clearance Centers, so I had never been there. When we found out about it and that it had a lot of discount furniture, we were really excited to go and check it out.
The nearest CORT location is about 20 minutes from our house and we were able to find it easily because of the large sign outside with the name on it. We had read a little bit about it leading up to our trip and were excited to go inside and check it out. We weren’t quite ready to make any purchases yet, but we thought it would be good to see what kind of variety they had.
Right when we went in the store we were met by a very polite employee who asked us if there was anything he could help with. We told him that it was our first trip to CORT and that we really just wanted to take a look at what they had. He was very nice and gave us a quick overview, explaining that they have both a rental and a retail section in the store. He showed us where each was and invited us to take a look and let him know if we had any questions.
We were quite impressed with both the variety and the prices of the furniture at CORT. As you can see in these images, they have furniture ranging from bedroom sets, to living room sets, to office desks and chairs and more.
My husband had a good time trying out some of the office sets and imagining how they would look in our house someday. Currently there isn’t enough room in our house for an office this big, but for our next house we definitely want to have one.
Our boys were tired after a long week and really enjoyed testing out some of the couches which they said were very comfy!
One thing that we really discovered was that although the furniture at CORT was definitely affordable, it was not cheap! We looked at everything closely and it looked like it was high quality and that it would last a long time. Another great thing about CORT is that all of its furniture is CORT Certified, which among other things, means that each piece of furniture has been inspected for cleanliness and structural quality.
We saw quite a few living room sets that we thought would look nice in our house as well, and we were sure to get lots of pictures so that we could remember the pieces that we liked for when we are ready to make our next purchase.
All in all, we enjoyed our first trip to CORT Clearance Centers and are happy to have found a new place to shop whenever we are looking for any furniture in any room of our house. Follow this link to find your local clearance center.
