First: Don't neglect to measure the room ahead of buying to see if your new furniture will fit.
Furniture always looks smaller in the store. Many times when people get furniture in their home they
are disappointed. Make sure to measure ahead of making your purchase.
Second: Don't forget your priorities. Are you looking for comfort or style? Are you shopping for
quality or price? It is best to buy a piece of furniture that you will feel comfortable with for years to
come. Try out your furniture in the store the way you would use it at home, and yes, that means lying
down on it, too. Your furniture should always make life more comfortable and easier.
Third: When you buy furniture, quality is one of the attributes you are looking for and as such you
should have the ability to judge a sofa for quality. With furniture, always read the warranties.
Warranties give a clear understanding of the quality and reliability behind the product. Sometimes
two sofas can look identical, but you will notice a huge price difference. When you explore further
you will almost always find a great difference in quality, and the quality comes from what is inside,
and how well it is constructed. Quality determines how long your sofa will last after you buy it and
how long it will be able to retain its looks.
Fourth: When you get to the stage of choosing fabrics and colors, it’s very beneficial to bring
samples from your home. A color that does not look very overpowering in the showroom could do
so in your home. Pieces of carpet or existing toss pillows from your home will ease the process of
choosing your new fabric colors. You can also ask to check out a fabric swatch so you can actually
see the fabric in your own home.
