When you think about buying a single piece of furniture, think about how it will fit in with the rest of your decor. Its one thing to see a flamingo side table out while youre shopping, but its another thing to bring it home and try to make it work with everything else you have. Think carefully before you buy.
Make sure you plan a specific budget before you go furniture shopping. When it comes to furniture, you have all kinds of options. You can end up spending much more than you can afford if you do not go in with a plan. If you have a price limit in mind, you are less likely to overspend.
Understand different wood types when buying furniture in order to maximize your budget. Furniture made from solid wood will be the most expensive and last the longest. Veneered wood will be less expensive, but will have lower quality wood under the veneer. Particle board and composites, which are made from wood pulp and binders, will be the least expensive but also the least durable.
