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.

For example, you may really like a couch, but it may not work in your living room. You should make sure you know the measurements of the couch and the measurements of your living room.

You need to make sure the new item blends well with the fabric, finish and materials of your existing pieces so that the whole room flows together. Planning ahead can help to avoid bringing home a new item that just does not work in the room.

Cushions should be firm, and have a cover that can be removed for cleaning. Try to find ones that have the same fabric on both sides. It will cost a bit more than one-sided cushions with a backing, but they will last longer and wear more evenly because you can flip them over every few months.

If the couch you want has a hardwood frame, then you need to ask whether it has been kiln-dried or not. If it has, then it will last much longer without warping, especially when it comes to changes in humidity.
