Measure your rooms before you buy, including the doorways into the room. This step is especially crucial if you are shopping for a large piece of furniture such as a sofa. There is nothing worse that getting your brand new piece of furniture home, only to find you cant get it into your living room, or that it blocks a walkway when placed in the spot you planned.
Figure out what you want from a sofa before you actually go to purchase one. If you would like a firm sofa, it would be wise to get one with traditional coiled springs. If you are looking for a softer sofa, be sure to get one that has zigzag coils.
When purchasing new furniture, do not forget about green furniture options. Still, some companies arent always completely honest where this topic is concerned. You can always ask if the piece is Oeko Tek or FSC certified. This will allow you to know if youre getting items that support a more green environment.
