Many times furniture stores set a much higher price then they need and will work with you. Once you find the piece or pieces you want, ask your salesperson if they can give you a better price.

If it is going near a heating unit or a vent of some kind, then wood furniture is not a good choice. Dry heat means wood is likely to dry out and shrink over time, which leaves cracks. If you have to, compensate with a humidifier in drier months. You want a moisture level of about 40 percent.

If you arent sure of the height of your walls, the other furniture thats in there, and how it all works together, get in the room and spend some time there. It ll help you make smart decisions.

For example, if you have an updated house, it is not very wise to antique furniture and vice versa. Unless you want your home to look tacky, it is important to take this into account.

Those legs need to not only support weight, theyll also be in contact with your flooring. If they look like they ll do damage to your floor due to the materials used (like metal), then you may want to opt for a different style.

When shopping for furniture online, dont forget to calculate shipping and handling charges into the overall sales price. What looks like a fantastic deal might actually cost more than buying locally because of shipping and handling. Also, if you find a deal online, take it to your local furniture store to see if they will meet or beat the online price.

Goodwill stores sometimes have pieces. Check out yard and garage sales. Also peruse Craiglist or local Freecycle options. Any community of some size has a secondary market of furniture not on showroom floors. Even consider going to storage locker auctions. If you see a piece you like, talk to the winning bidder for that locker.
