When buying new furniture or used furniture, make sure all the drawers and cabinet doors work properly before purchasing. Make sure the cabinet doors close securely and open easily. Test all the drawers to ensure they pull out correctly and close properly. If there is anything that is not working, get it fixed before buying.
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.
If you are trying to shop for furniture made in either fully or at least partially environmentally responsible manners, look out for three possible certifications. Scientific Certification Systems uses an SCS label. Also look for SmartWood certification by the Rainforest Alliance. The Green Seal organization also verifies furniture, simply saying Green Seal on the label.
