If it is going near a heating unit or a vent of some kind, then wood furniture is not a good choice. Dry heat means wood is likely to dry out and shrink over time, which leaves cracks. If you have to, compensate with a humidifier in drier months. You want a moisture level of about 40 percent.

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.

You may enjoy a couch made a white leather, but if you have kids or pets then you may find that the couch will get damaged. Darker colors and tough fabrics are better choices, as they will last much longer.

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.

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. If your tastes change, large and oddly colored furniture may be hard to resell. Stay with neutral and classic colors for large and expensive furniture.

Be sure the latches work, the drawers open, and that they are even when they shut. It would be a big hassle if you were to have your furniture delivered only to discover it does not work right.

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.

After this, you should select based on comfort. Cushions should be supported by a system of springs. Hand-tied 8-way springs are your best bet, but serpentine work, too. Test springs by feeling them through any upholstery. High quality construction means springs close together.
