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.
Check the legs of any furniture before you buy. Look for furniture that has sturdy wooden legs that are properly joined to the frame of the piece. Nailed on wood legs or plastic molded legs are not as stable, and can damage floors. If you are looking at sofas, try to find one with a fifth leg, located in the middle for added stability and support.
Although you may be tempted to buy big, bold furniture with wild or bright colors, save that for decorative pieces that can easily be moved around. If your tastes change, large and oddly colored furniture may be hard to resell. Stay with neutral and classic colors for large and expensive furniture.
