17 Awesome Furniture Buying Tips

Easy to Follow Guide to Buying Furniture

When looking at furnishing your home, ask yourself these questions to ensure you make the right choices to suit your lifestyle.

Analyze Furniture Needs

When purchasing new furnishings, determine what your needs are. For example, if you are looking at a new dining room table for your home, first consider the differences between four, six, or more seats. Is the dinner table barely used in your home because you dine out? Or are you more prone to have homemade family dinners with gatherings on the weekends?

Establish a Budget

Here is a look at the three different types of budgets.

Have a Few Extra Bucks: This budget type is best suited for those that have been in their home for a while, have the bare essentials, and looking to add on those last few pieces of nice furnishings to make their house a home.

Moderate Budget: If you are just getting settled and have larger expenses to consider, this budget takes into consideration the main essentials.

Shoe String Budget: This is fitted for those that are between repairs and maintenance cost, leaving minimal for furniture. This type of budget focuses on purchasing cheap bare essentials to replace over time with newer quality furniture as it is affordable.

Brands for Every Budget

For those with a few extra bucks, good brands that offer specialized and quality craftsmanship and timeless pieces are Abbyson Living, American Drew from Laz Boy, A.R.T. Furniture, Coastal Living, Copeland, Howard Miller, Stanley, and Trend.

Moderate budget level options are Broyhill, Butler, Catnapper, Diamond Sofa, Hillsdale Furniture, Klaussner, and Zuo.

For those that have a shoe string budget and need ready to assemble pieces, brands such as PrePac, LumiSource, Fashion Bed Group, Ave Six, Atlantic Furniture, Adesso, and Signature Design are good options.
