21 Places to Buy Furniture in Edmonton

I am very particular with the referral partners I work with. Sending my clients to an interior designer who will educate, understand, and go the extra mile for my clients is so important.  Jennifer Woch from House of J has proven herself to be one of the best interior designers I have had the privilege to work with over the last 9 years. Here is Jennifer with her handy list of 21 places to buy furniture in Edmonton!


Looking for stylish furnishings? Not sure where to go? Here is a quick list of some of the hottest spots in Edmonton for furniture and home decor.

The furniture stores listed offer furnishings for every room of your home. The styles very from traditional to modern and everything in-between!

Generally all furniture must be ordered. Although a few furniture stores, such as Reside and Pier 1 Imports, do have some stock readily available. Accessories are usually cash and carry. Order times can vary from 1-2 weeks, or 4-18 weeks for custom orders. Good things come to those who wait!

Most shops will deliver, but there is usually a fee associated with delivery. You can expect custom orders to be a final sale (non-refundable) in most cases, however, some shops will return items and charge a restocking fee.

Before purchasing furniture it is a good idea to think how you function in the space you are buying for. Do you like to lie down while watching t.v. in your living room? Then a comfy couch is a must. Do you mainly entertain guests in the living room? Then perhaps a selection of accent chairs would be a good option.

Another very important consideration when purchasing furniture is size! Before ordering be sure to check dimensions of the item being purchased and the space it’s going into. Ensure it is not too large to get through the front door or around that corner on the stairs up to the bonus room! *Always measure before ordering.

Whether you are ready to start purchasing for your home or you’re simply dreaming of all the possibilities, Edmonton has some excellent options and variety when it comes to home furnishings. Happy Shopping!

Home Automation – The High Tech House Movement

I am very particular with the referral partners I work with. Sending my clients to an electrician who will educate, understand, and go the extra mile for my clients is so important.  Kevin Jackson from Yellow Jacket Energy Services has proven himself to be one of the best electricians I have had the privilege to work with over the last 9 years. Here is Kevin letting us all know the amazing benefits of home automation, and the packages that Yellow Jacket Energy Services offers.


Until recently, home automation seemed like something from a futuristic sci-fi movie. Now, there are amazing developments in technology which allow us to be able to control interconnecting features of our home from anywhere in the world.


Having a home automation system installed and making your home “smarter” has so many benefits!


  • Save Money – Having a home automation system can save you money with your utility costs for years to come!
    • Set your lights to turn off or dim automatically to save energy usage
    • Have your outdoor lights turn on when motion is detected, instead of leaving them on all day or night
    • Set your furnace and air conditioning to use less energy
    • Avoid monthly fees for security features, and monitor them yourself with your system


  • Feel Secure – Installing an HA system can mean more security for your biggest purchase, lessening stress and worry about your home and your safety.
    • Set sensors and alarms for the whole house, or for rooms of your choice
    • Get notified instantly if any doors or windows are opened if they aren’t supposed to be
    • Program sirens and strobes to go off if your home is invaded
    • Lock and unlock your doors from anywhere, and set reminders to lock your doors remotely
    • Get an HD video alert if someone is on your doorstep. You can even scare off a potential thief with two-way voice communication from anywhere.
    • Monitor specific cabinets so your children don’t get into something hazardous
    • While you are on vacation, make your home look like it’s being lived in
    • Set a temperature sensor for when you are on vacation and get notified if your temperature is too low or high.
    • Detect water leaks in your home and be notified before your basement starts to flood
    • Set your system to notify you about smoke and carbon monoxide, which allows you to call for help instantly.


  • Increase Your Home’s Value
    • A smart home is cutting edge and will make your property more prominent in the market, will increase interest, and add value to your home.


  • User friendliness – The home automation package can be used right from your smartphone and tablet!


  • Up your comfort! Set routines such as “good morning” or “movie night”, and set your devices to do exactly what you want during those routines


Yellowjacket Energy Services has a great home automation package for sellers who want to increase their home’s value. This package includes:

  • Main control hub (brains of the operation)
  • Voice activated controller (install in common area to show clients you can talk to your house and have it control lights, play music, turn up heat, etc.)
  • Dimming smart switches and 5 on/off smart switches (pick areas of house best shown with automation and voice control.  Also, set as a “vacation routine” to make house lived in, even if it is vacant)
  • Moisture sensors
  • Water shutoff valve (if any of the 3 above moisture sensors detect a leak, it will automatically close the water main and prevent house from flooding)
  • Indoor motion sensors (set up to show clients lights can turn on/off as you walk into rooms without touching anything)
  • Smart Thermostat (control by smartphone or voice activation)


Each package can be customized with options from many devices, sequences, and alarms, and the price to supply, install and program everything above is $2,995 + GST, which also includes an electrical permit and inspection report.  Yellowjacket Energy Services also offers financing on Home Automation packages based on a 120 month term, but can be paid off at any time without a penalty. If you are listing your home and want to include this package, you can pay $30/month while your home is on the market, then pay the balance when the property sells.

Sell Your Home with Landscaping Tips and Tricks


Spring is here and it’s time to start revamping your yard, especially if you plan to sell your house this summer. First impressions make a big difference on a buyer, and the first time your buyer forms an opinion of your house is from it’s curb appeal. Although yardwork and landscaping can often be neglected while selling a home, as much as 10% extra value can be added to your home through beautifying your yard.

Give yourself time to start working on your yard – at least a month before you plan to list – to get your yard looking just right, instead of looking haphazardly thrown together. Here is a guideline with a few tips you can follow to get your yard in ship-shape for selling.


Fix Up Outdoor Containers

Quite a lot of interest can be added to green spaces, patios, doorways, walkways, and difficult spaces in your yard through container gardens. A container garden can be anything from simple succulents to flowers and vegetables, to large tropicals, adding different levels of greenery. These touches can also show how endless the possibilities are when designing and landscaping a yard, especially with a more difficult space.


Layer On Some Mulch

Probably one of the easiest and cheapest steps to take, yet will add some invaluable tidiness to your garden bed, is adding a new layer of mulch. New mulch will make your foliage stand out and add some contrast and new colour to your beds.


Add In Colour

Greenery is especially treasured here in Alberta, but colourful plants will add even more beauty to all that greenery, and will break up monotone yards. Add in layers or splashes of colour, or opt for a garden with a monochromatic theme – whatever style will suit your home best.


Get Pruning

Another inexpensive way to clean up your yard is to spend time shaping overgrown foliage. It might be easy to overlook this chore throughout the seasons, but gardens will show signs of neglect quickly if they are not taken care of – and that is not something you want to present to a potential buyer.


Spend Time With Your Perennials

It is a good idea to spend time replacing or tidying up your perennials that might not be looking as nice as they should. If you don’t want to replace the plant, you can always put an ornamental pot or container garden in its place. This is also a good time to think about what plants you will be taking with you when you move, and to possibly dig those up – or be sure to let potential buyers know which plants will still be in the yard after you sell.


Tidy Up Water Accents

Neglected features containing water, such as fountains, bird baths, and small pools in your landscape can easily collect algae or leaves. It’s important to keep these clean and updated, as a nasty looking water feature can turn off buyers instantly.


Fix Up Irrigation Concerns

Potential buyers can also be turned off by expensive updates and repairs, so make them before you list your house. Irrigation issues fall under this, as they can be time consuming and costly, so be sure to fix it right away. It’s also a good idea to provide information about irrigation in your yard – the schedule, system, and any instructions.


Take Care of Faucet Leaks

Faucet leaks might not seem like a big deal, but sometimes they can point to other issues on the property with plumbing. As you can imagine, a potential buyer might stray away from this. If you are able to repair these leaks, it’s best to do them right away. It’s a good idea to quickly water your yard and greenery before a showing happens at your home, as it shows buyers that your space is well managed.


Power-Wash Your Space

Rent or purchase a power-washer to clean hard surfaces, such as driveways or cement pads in your yard. This step can make rundown areas look all shiny and new. A power washer can also help clean other surfaces, such as brick, vinyl, and fences.


Label Your Plants

Lastly, providing potential buyers with garden and plant information is a great extra bonus for showings. Leaving a garden plan behind, or even labels in the garden, will eliminate a lot of work for your home’s new owner, and they will greatly appreciate your effort. This is also perfect for showings as some long term plants, or ones that may be difficult to grow can add extra value to your home.









Curb Appeal – What it takes to Sell Your Home the Easy Way!

If you are selling your home, you will never want your potential buyers to just drive by and keep going. But if your property lacks the curb appeal, or it does not seem well maintained on the outside, they will simply ignore it and never give it a second glance.

The curb appeal of a home is critical as it serves as the first impression of your property to potential buyers, and we all know how important first impressions are! This is the reason why exterior replacement projects can give you the best value for your money. Projects like windows, siding and entry door replacements can increase your potential sale amount when you successfully resell your home.

Some homeowners tend to panic when they hear about exterior projects, thinking that they cannot afford to replace their shutters, siding, and windows. But don’t panic! Improving the curb appeal of your property often entails doing a few small projects which can still leave a big and remarkable impact on your home. The good news is that these tips are quick and won’t break the bank.

So, what are the easy and economical tips that can make your curb appeal more affordable than ever?

  • Wash your windows – inside and out!
  • Update your front door’s light fixture and replace the light bulb.
  • Throw away that old and ratty “welcome” mat!
  • Scrap worn and peeling paint off window trims and repaint them!
  • Install or replace your mailbox.
  • Replace the window treatments inside your house if needed. Look at the window treatments in the rooms on the front of your home. How do they look from the front walk or street? Eliminate or update them if necessary.
  • If your front walk is heaved or cracked, repair them right away – this can be expensive so talk to your REALTOR® first.
  • Remove shrub branches and dead trees. Note: tree branches should not be pressed up against your house! This can do damage over time.
  • Mow your lawn.
  • Clean the front lights, walkway and entryway of tree debris, dirt, dust, cobwebs and others.
  • You can add some potted and colorful plants along your entryway or walkway. A good alternative is to use small succulents that are planted together in bigger containers.
  • Make sure that your front door is painted. Doors will always leave a first impression to the people entering your home. See to it that it is always clean or you can also add a fresh coat of paint if you like.
  • Sweep and clean your driveway.
  • Put away all your yard equipment as well as the children’s toys in their proper storage area.
  • Never use your porch as a storage place.
  • Got an RV? Look for another place where you can park your extra cars, RVs, trailers or boats.
  • Place your garbage cans where they are not visible from the street.

Curb appeal is one of the crucial aspects that help sell most of the houses offered on the market. If you are preparing to sell your home sometime soon, investing time and money into improving the curb appeal of your home is a no-brainer.
