Purchasing quality furniture for your home

Purchasing quality furniture for your home

Sometimes it feels like the easiest choice to go with is the most affordable option when buying furniture, but not all furniture is created equal. With a lack of durability the cheapest choice doesn’t always hold up. Here are a few things to look for to make sure you purchase long-lasting, quality pieces of furniture:

It is important to test the feel of the couch by sitting on it to first test its comfort. The springs should be hand-tied coil springs that are close together and have even resistance. If the cushions are removable, unzip a seat cover and look inside. You should see a block of foam that’s wrapped with padding and preferably with a protective inner cover. Foam-only cushions are both less durable and less comfortable. The denser the foam the longer it will last.

Dining table and chairs
Check the quality of the dining table by making sure it sits firmly on its feet and does not wobble when you apply pressure. Poor quality tables may just be screwed together or stapled and you want to make sure it has dovetailed or dowelled joints. You also will want to go with solid wood instead of veneer.

Before you buy your chairs check them out to make sure they are structurally sound by moving it around to ensure the legs, arms, and back do not sway or move. If it has a wood seat it should be all one piece, not pieces glued together.

Furniture is a big investment, so be sure you’re making the right decisions!
