Using fasteners, adhesives, finishes, and polishes can negatively affect both the current and future values of the pieces. Some of these products can dramatically discolor or completely alter the appearance of the pieces.

A quality piece of furniture should be whats called "wood joined" where the two pieces are literally jointed for a solid attachment. If instead youre met with nails or glue, look for a better option. The furniture may not last long when joined in that way.

Although you may be tempted to buy big, bold furniture with wild or bright colors, save that for decorative pieces that can easily be moved around.

Try to choose furniture that is constructed using wood joinery techniques. Avoid buying furniture that is held together with nails and glue. Pieces that are held together with wood joinery will hold up to more weight and for several years after the nail and glue pieces fall apart.

Theres often a lot of furniture thats given away for absolutely nothing, other than your expense to pick it up! Thats a huge deal. Why do people give furniture away? Theyve decided to upgrade, and it can cost a lot of money to hire someone to get rid of the older piece. Take advantage of these situations.

This is particularly important if you live on a very high floor. You may have to pay a little more if you want the item delivered directly to your door, but it will be more than worth it when you realize you wont have to do it yourself.
