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.

On any given day, you can find tons of postings on furniture for sale. Sellers on Craigslist are open to negotiating prices, so you can usually get something at a great price. Just make sure that you have cash on hand when you want to purchase.

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.

You may think your sofa is the piece of furniture that gets the most time, but for most people its the bed. Pay the extra price to get one thats totally comfortable for you. Its well worth it, and it can really affect how you feel on a daily basis.

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.

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.

They wont hold up as well as a piece that has ends that are joined together. In addition, these pieces are much less likely to be able to bear weight, meaning that you wont get as much use out of them.

A home without free-roaming pets that is going to stay that way is safer for a lot more furniture. If you do have uncaged pets or think you might in the future, be a lot more picky in what pieces of furniture you buy.
