I am trying to buy a new couch and I went onto Raymour & Flanagan website. They do not have the couch in any of their stores. You have to buy it & if you don't like it when they deliver it you tell them to take it back. Then you end up with a 15% return fee anyway. How the heck can you tell if you like a couch that way??? This isn't because of the coronavirus, this is how they do it for many pieces of furniture!

Never let a designer talk you into or out of something you really want. We just completed a kitchen and bath remodel and had a design firm help. They were very adamant in what they liked and kept dissuading us from elements we really wanted. It grew very painful. In the end, we picked all of our own finishes with some help from specific vendors. The result was exactly what we wanted and we could not be happier with it. Our contractors all commented on how stunning it turned out. Designers need to work with you, not against you. In the end, it is your money and your house—you will spend a lot of unexpected time and money on your project no matter what so be prepared!
