Guide for Buying High-Quality Furnitures

From buying at the right time to choosing colors, here's what you need to find furniture that lasts, and save time and cash while you're at it.


Furniture tips: wood

1. Know your wood types

Wood furniture falls into three categories: solid wood, veneers, and particle board or composite wood.

Solid wood furniture is typically more expensive than other types and looks great, but can be susceptible to scratches and water rings. Veneers have an inexpensive wood base covered by several thin layers of better-quality wood. Because of the cheaper core, veneers aren’t as expensive as solid wood pieces. Particle board and composite wood pieces are made from a combination of wood pulp, plastics, and resin, basically the scraps of the furniture world. These are the cheapest type of wood furniture and can look decent, but won’t hold up for decades.

2. Check drawers and cabinets

Open the drawers and cabinets. Make sure the drawer pulls all the way out, latches properly, and then shuts evenly. Make sure doors open, remain in an open position (instead of snapping closed while you’re trying to get something out of the cabinet), and shut again. Check the handles and knobs. They should fit tightly and not jiggle or turn.

3. Avoid nails and glue

Look for wood joined at ends and corners, not glued or nailed in. Known in the manufacturing world as wood joinery, these pieces are studier and can take more weight. Check out Basic Woodworking Joints from Wood Magazine to see examples.


Furniture tips: fabric

4. Consider your lifestyle

Let your lifestyle determine what colors and fabrics you choose. For example, I have a large, hyper dog constantly climbing on the furniture. If I brought home a white suede couch, it would be torn apart and stained in minutes. If you have kids or pets, stick with dark colors and stain-resistant tough fabrics like linen or tweed.

5. Be realistic about colors

I once bought an orange corduroy armchair at a furniture outlet store. At the time, my house was decorated in orange, blue, and white, and I thought I’d love those colors forever. As it turned out, “forever” was about a year. I got so sick of the bright orange I sold the chair for a fraction of what I paid. Learn from my mistake: Stick to neutral colors for your bigger and more expensive pieces. Save bold colors for décor pieces.

6. Inspect the legs

The legs should be heavy, wood, and jointed to the frame of the sofa or chair, not nailed. Plastic, rubber, or metal legs don’t look as nice, can tear up your floors, and won’t hold up as well. Same goes for nailed-in wood legs. If you’re spending more than $1,000 on a sofa, look for one with a fifth leg in the middle. They provide extra support – you won’t find them on many cheaper sofas.

7. Check the springs

If you like firm sofas, look for one with traditional coiled springs. If you want a softer feel, go with zigzag coils. Before you buy, take off the cushions and press down on the base of the sofa. The coils should push down and spring back into place immediately.

8. Test the cushions

Look for firm cushions with a removable cover matching on both sides. Firm cushions hold up better over time. Fully covered cushions cost a bit more than ones with the pattern on one side and a plain white or tan backing, but they’ll last longer and wear evenly if you can flip them over every few months. Find removable covers that are easily washable.

Visited many different stores searching for the right furniture set for our family. Were built with a nice choice, but didn't have precisely what we were looking for. They let us know that they'll order furniture from other stores. We discovered a sofa, love chair, and recliner that people truly loved at Ashley Furnishings. I went to some different Ashley stores attempting to get the best offer. Went back to Furniture Outlet, gave them the design numbers, plus they were able to save me 100's of dollars.

Remarkably helpful to say the least. It was a pleasant experience because I knew Danae was heading above and beyond to exhibit me each and every customizable choice. I was surprised at her level of interest to help me discover precisely what I needed. At no point was there a hurry to get my final result. It had been amazing to understand she was less thinking about creating a big purchase and much more worried about assisting me personally. A truly incredible style advisor, I would recommend Danae every day.

We went in to the Costa Mesa display room to just browse and ended up buying our ideal sofa. The huge selection of materials is amazing. Prices are sensible and also the support was great. While the pair were styles and materials, Kathy assisted us out and pulled some fabrics for all of us according to our requirements. She was excellent and you ought to request her when you visit the store. She's very aware on style and extremely listens to what you have to say. She'd alot of creative input and i am so deeply in love with our making your decision. Our experience was awesome and we now have the perfect sofa for the home. Can't wait to win the picture contest.
