Before you buy furniture, know the measurements of the space you want to put it into. It is hard to simply look at something in the store and determine its dimensions. When the piece arrives, its too late to change your mind. Therefore, ensure you measure your space before buying to keep this problem from occurring.
If you are looking for new furniture that has cushions, try to find ones with firm cushions and removable covers. Firm cushions will last much longer than softer ones. If the cushions have removable covers, check to see if they are machine washable. Your furniture will look good for a much longer period of time if you can wash the cushions.
When buying furniture with drawers or latches, make sure they work smoothly and properly. Check over the piece of furniture just like you would a car. Make sure the drawers open without resistance, and that the latches catch and release easily. Also check that the drawers fit flush against the furniture when closed.
