Check Craigslist for deals. Theres often a lot of furniture thats given away for absolutely nothing, other than your expense to pick it up! Thats a huge deal. Why do people give furniture away? Theyve decided to upgrade, and it can cost a lot of money to hire someone to get rid of the older piece. Take advantage of these situations.
If you want to save money on furniture, consider alternatives to traditional shopping. Goodwill stores sometimes have pieces. Check out yard and garage sales. Also peruse Craiglist or local Freecycle options. Any community of some size has a secondary market of furniture not on showroom floors. Even consider going to storage locker auctions. If you see a piece you like, talk to the winning bidder for that locker.
Fabric alignment is an important feature you need to check when youre buying a couch with patterned fabric. On some cheaper pieces of furniture, different sections of fabric might not line up properly. Remember that you will have to look at your sofa everyday, so it might be worth it to spend a little extra for a fabric that looks perfect. Pick a different couch if the upholstery looks low-quality.
