Should I get furniture or decorate first?
I’m planning to get the hallways, stairs and bedrooms redecorated soon and need a few items of large furniture. Since it would be more difficult trying to decorate around this furniture or move it, I had planned to get it once the decorating was finished. However, thinking back, every time I’ve bought furniture or white goods in the past, the delivery guys have always caused extensive damage to the walls/flooring/skirting boards/doors.
I’ve been reading a few threads where people have said the delivery companies are not liable for any damage and it’s up to the customer to protect the walls etc. I don’t know of any practical way to do that. So now I’m wondering if it’s better to get the furniture first, despite knowing it will be a real hassle for the decorators trying to manoeuvre around it. What do most people do?
