You may be able to find a beautiful sofa for pennies on the dollar if you are willing to reupholster the piece or have it professionally reupholstered. The money saved on the piece will generally cover any upholstery job.

Your sofa will probably squeak a lot if the board is any thinner. Always sit on the sofa before making a decision to make sure it is comfortable and well built.

Firm cushions will last much longer than softer ones. If the cushions have removable covers, check to see if they are machine washable. Your furniture will look good for a much longer period of time if you can wash the cushions.

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.

If you have children or pets, it is best to steer clear of delicate fabrics and light colors. These will be worn through and stained in no time. A darker, sturdier fabric will hold up to the abuse, and hides many stains.
