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.

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.

Dont let the credit card bill surprise you at the end of the month. Allocate more money towards the major pieces such as sofas and beds. If you need to pare down your spending, start with the smaller items that dont need to be as sturdy.

Write down the items you have to buy and which room they are going to be in. Also make note if you think any colors or patterns would be nice. The list can help save you a lot of time and money once you actually get to the store.

After this, you should select based on comfort. Cushions should be supported by a system of springs. Hand-tied 8-way springs are your best bet, but serpentine work, too. Test springs by feeling them through any upholstery. High quality construction means springs close together.

Despite their name, these insects do not just infest bedding and mattresses. They burrow into the tiny crevices in upholstered furniture too. Make sure you remove the cushions and check in the cracks for evidence of bed bugs before making any purchasing decisions.

If you need a certain piece, you can save a lot of money by patiently waiting for the price to be lowered. You might even ask your favorite furniture store when the item will be marked at a lower price.
