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.

Went to a variety of stores looking for the best furniture set for us. Were built with a nice choice, but didn't have exactly what we were looking for. They tell us that they'll purchase furnishings using their company shops. We discovered a settee, adore chair, and recliner chair that we really loved at Ashley Furnishings. I proceeded to go to some various Ashley stores attempting to get the best offer. Went back to Furnishings Electric outlet, gave them the design figures, and they were able to save me 100's of dollars.

I just obtained a full over complete garbage household furniture and 2 complete home furniture. How much of an incredible deal I acquired....incredible!!! Ask for Rich! He will take care of you. I seen C-list and frequented multiple furniture shops. Rich beat all prices. The home furnitures and residential furnishings have been in inventory that is great news. Sometimes you need to wait weeks for new furniture in the future in. I even received a free gift. I won't say what it really was. You'll have to go see Rich for yourself!!

I went in here in regards to a 30 days and a half back to buy furnishings and the 2nd i strolled in Manny was there and greeted me having a large grin. He walked me through all of the furniture and provided some great offers. This was my first time purchasing furniture for my personal place and with Manny there is just a degree of believe in there and that i knew he would do me wrong. If you need furniture and want a good deal and friendly individuals who are not just attempting to take your cash go here! Thanks again Manny!!!
