While online research is great for shopping prices, dimensions and colors, theres no substitute for being in the physical presence of a piece of furniture. This will help you gauge comfort levels to see if the furniture suits you.

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.

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.

Look for furniture that has sturdy wooden legs that are properly joined to the frame of the piece. Nailed on wood legs or plastic molded legs are not as stable, and can damage floors. If you are looking at sofas, try to find one with a fifth leg, located in the middle for added stability and support.

It seems like a simple tip, but many people get caught up in the newest trends when buying furniture. They get the pieces home only to find that it doesnt work at all with the rest of the room. That can be a big pain to deal with, so choose styles that work in the first go around.

You should not purchase a piece of furniture if the drawers do not open all the way and close evenly. Make sure the doors stay open and close properly. You should also check the knobs or handles to make sure they are properly attached.

Indoor and outdoor furniture experience different conditions and are susceptible to different kinds of damage. For instance, you may need special finishes to protect your outdoor furniture from rain or upholstery cleaner for your indoor pieces. By keeping the proper products around, your furniture can look great for a long time, no matter if theyre inside or outside.

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.
