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.

Check thrift shops, moving sales, and estate sales. You may find a gem that not only will stand the test of time, but costs a fraction of the price of a new piece.

This step is especially crucial if you are shopping for a large piece of furniture such as a sofa.

While it is likely you can return a piece of furniture that doesnt fit, that means moving more furniture than you want to. Know the measurements of both your overall room and where a piece will specifically go. Take a measuring tape to the showroom, just to make sure the listed dimensions are accurate.

Doing so will allow you to fit the table into a smaller space, but you can also extend the leaf when you have company over and need more seating. You can always store the extra chairs in a garage or basement when you are not using them.

Many rental companies, like Rent-A-Center or Aarons, allow you to rent sofas, beds, chairs, and other furniture without having to pay up front. Instead, you can pay weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. Once you are done paying it off, the furniture is yours.
