The RoomPlace Opens New Furniture Store in McHenry, IL

The team at The RoomPlace has exciting news for anyone who has been searching in vain for that new leather sofa north of Chicago!

At the end of the month, we proudly opened the doors of a brand-new furniture store at 2221 N Richmond Road in McHenry, IL. Marking The RoomPlace’s 20th furniture store in the Midwest, the ribbon-cutting ceremony for our new store was performed with much ado and a little help from McHenry Mayor Susan Low on Friday, March 22 at 9:30am. Taking the place of a former Borders books and music store location, the new McHenry RoomPlace encompasses 24,000 square feet and features everything from king mattress sets to living room furniture.

In order to introduce ourselves to the McHenry community in style, The RoomPlace held a company-wide grand opening sale all of last week, during which our customers saved up to 65 percent on all their home furniture needs! The spectacular grand opening sale might be over, but we invite all of our McHenry furniture shoppers to stop by the new store after work or over the weekend to learn how The RoomPlace can help you save on furniture today. Like all of our furniture stores throughout Chicago and the greater Indianapolis region, The RoomPlace’s McHenry store will be open from 10am until 9pm Monday through Saturday, and 11am until 6pm on Sunday, for the convenience of our busy customers.

We hope our brand-new furniture store in McHenry will help to strengthen our consumer base throughout Chicago, while providing our loyal furniture customers a more convenient way to shop for all their favorite home décor items. For more details, please don’t hesitate to contact The RoomPlace in McHenry by calling (815) 528-9200 or stopping by our convenient location to speak with us in person.

The RoomPlace is honored to call McHenry home.

Beat the Stress of a Shortened Month with a Little Help from The RoomPlace

Don’t look now, but there’s less than one week left until March.

Yeah, it snuck up on us, too. Here at The RoomPlace, we’re all-too familiar with the stresses that go along with the end of the month: bills to pay, deadlines to meet, hectic work days to survive. And with only 28 days in February, saying “so much to do, so little time” couldn’t be more appropriate.

But we do have one secret weapon to help beat the stress at The RoomPlace, and that’s being able to provide the best medicine for all that headache-inducing, neck-straining pressure: comfortable, luxurious, “ahhhhh”-worthy furniture. Because let’s face it: Nothing’s more relaxing at the end of a long day than sinking into your leather sofa with a mug of tea and your favorite book or TV show. So as you’re wrapping up that to-do list that seems a mile longer than usual this week, let’s take a moment to reflect on some of our favorite soothing items here at The RoomPlace furniture stores.

  • Recline. When it comes to comfort, nothing beats the recliner in your living room that practically swallows you when you sit down. Try out the velvet-like microfiber of the slate gray Tres Power Rocker Recliner, which hugs all your limbs by leaving no gap between the seat and footrest and offering extra-full, cushioned pillowtop arms. Or check out this Rocker Recliner from the Geovani Collection, which combines luxury with environmental friendliness by using cocoa-colored Eco-leather upholstery.
  • Indulge. We’re not trying to advocate an unhealthy lifestyle, but when you’ve had a tough day, there’s nothing wrong with treating yourself to a rewarding buffet-style supper. You probably don’t feel like cooking, so give yourself the night off and arrange some snacks and appetizers on your sideboard, like our Northfield Server or this slightly more upscale piece from the Monte Carlo Collection. When you really need to unwind, you might even appreciate the wine rack on this buffet from the Lauren Collection!
  • Hit the snooze button. Your discipline in waking up before work every morning to hit the gym or get a headstart on answering your emails is commendable, but your work (and mental health!) will suffer if you’re not getting enough sleep. Give yourself a break and hit the snooze button at least once this week – it’s surprisingly easy when you’re sleeping on a Comfort Solutions or Dormia king mattress!

When you choose The RoomPlace, relaxing can be as simple as replacing some of your furniture. Indianapolis and Chicago residents alike can breathe a sigh of relief now that the nasty Midwest winter is almost behind us, so why not celebrate with a little shopping? In addition to the comfy, cozy items discussed above, The RoomPlace has plenty of other pieces to suit all your furniture needs. From hardwood furniture to twin mattress sets, our affordable furniture collection is full of variety and style. Contact The RoomPlace today to learn more about how you can save on your next furniture purchase in IL or IN, or better yet, stop by The RoomPlace store nearest you to peruse our selection in person.

On second thought, maybe that can wait until next week. You could probably use a nap.

How to buy the right furniture for your living room

At The Room Place we aren't here to just sell furniture. We actually want to get to know our customers and help them find the perfect piece or pieces of furniture for their home and lifestyle. We realize that shopping for furniture can be stressful, but it can also be extremely fun provided you know what you want as well as what you need. At The Room Place we take pride in being your neighborhood furniture store for over 100 years now. Quality, value and fantastic service aren't just buzz words for us.

Here are some tips on how to pick out the right furniture for your living room.

  • First you need to look at the room as a whole. What do you use it for?

    • Is the room used for movie night? How about kids jumping around? Pets? or is this room just going to be a formal room to occasionally entertain company?

These are all great question that will help you start to narrow down the living room furniture that you should buy. Below are some of the answers to these questions.

  • Furniture for movie night and just hanging out.

    • You should really look for something that is comfortable and stain resistant since you will probably be drinking a soda and eating popcorn, right??.. Keep in mind you can always purchase fabric and leather protection at any of our stores or online.
  • Young children running around means your furniture will see a lot more use and wear.

    • Make sure you buy living room furniture that is durable and well made.
    • You may want to stay away from electronic motion sofas, sectionals and love seats. Children tend to love pushing buttons!
    • You will definitely want fabric protection for living room furniture being used by small children.
    • Look for sofa cushions that are removable and not attached to the backs or sides of the couch, sectional or love seat. Kids will jump on, over and into the furniture often putting stress on the seam connecting back cushions to the sofa backs.
  • Allowing pets near or on the living room furniture.

    • Again you will want fabric protection for your sofa, loveseat, sectional or chair.
    • Fabric choice is key here. If you go with leather you can just wipe down the cushions to clean or get pet hair off. However, going with upholstered furniture you will get hair and stains that will need to be vacuumed as well as cleaned often.

      • As long as your pet doesn't claw or scratch at your furniture you may want to consider leather or faux leather furniture for the ease of maintenance. .If you do decide on upholstered furniture than consider purchasing furniture that has removable cushions where the fabric can actually be removed from the cushion and laundered. (please check your fabric care instructions here).
  • Formal rooms for entertaining and sitting.

    • These are the easiest to pick out. Just look at the room. How much space do you have? Do you want your room to be Traditinal or Contemporary in designs?

      • You don't want to over crowed the room. Or worse, buy something that doesn't fit at all. If you have limited space you may want to measure. Come into the store with measurements in hand.
      • Look for your style. Is the room or decor eclectic, contemporary or traditional?
      • Leather tends to look more formal but isn't always as comfortable as a plush upholstered furniture. You often have to balance look vs. feel.

        • You can find sofa, love seats and sectionals at The Room Place that have both leather or Faux Leather and Upholstery. This kind of furniture will give you a more formal look with the comfort of plush cushioning.

What is important when looking for living room furniture is to really know that there is a fine balance between needs and wants. Shopping for furniture can be overwhelming with all the different styles, fabrics and designs. It will definitely help you make a better decision if you can ask yourself some basic questions like the ones above. When you shop at The Room Place you will find sales associates that are happy to answer your questions and help you pick out the best furniture for your home.
