You may be able to go with a more affordable piece if you know you can slipcover it. You might even want to look at slipcovers first to see if you like the slipcover look, as well as to size slipcovers for any piece you may see.

You run a real risk of cluttering your home when you get too many new pieces and subtract nothing. It is of course your choice what goes in your home, but you arent going to have too much room if you never get rid of anything.

Wet cleaners can dampen the fabric to the point of stretching or breaking. It can also cause mildew, mold, or rot in the fabric. Dry solutions can get rid of things like dust, dander, dirt, etc. while keeping your fabric in good shape.

If the furniture is wood with a stain, check that it is applied evenly and that you can see the wood grain. For opaque or painted finishes, look for an even coating. There should be no bubbles or other blemishes on the finish.

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.

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.

If you need a certain piece, you can save a lot of money by patiently waiting for the price to be lowered. You might even ask your favorite furniture store when the item will be marked at a lower price.
