5 Tips For Selecting Quality Furniture For Your New Home.

Shifting to a new home after Easter? It’s ideal for you to start looking for some home furniture as well. You’ll have to take charge for ready-made furniture as your hubby would be interested in doing everything DIY.

Before he gets carried away, start planning in advance of what you need and get to it as soon as possible. There are several companies that you can look into, and some options like quality Broyhill furniture even allow you to make your own designs for sofas, loveseats and other furniture.

Whether you’re looking to fill in the new living room, bedroom or dining room, here are some tips that you should follow for selecting quality home furniture:

1. Check for the quality of frames and cushion
The furniture that you’re going to pick for the new house will commonly feature a synthetic frame, and living room items will come along with cushions. While selecting, check for the frame quality, the quality of the materials that were used to make it, and its life. For cushions, be bold enough to unzip them and see what’s inside, so that you get the best when it comes to quality.

2. Inspect wood quality and carpentry
Wood furniture is selected for most homes. If you’re going to go with it, make sure to carefully examine the carpentry and the quality of wood. Don’t opt for something that comes with a firm structure, as it may not have a good lifespan. Beautiful patterns clearly show on high quality wood furniture, so make sure to look for wood grains. The water content should be at 15% and dry areas should contain even less, as the furniture is going to shrink with weather changes if the water content is high.

3. Check for weakness if selecting upholstered furniture
There’s one main reason due to which you may prefer upholstered furniture over leather and wooden furniture; it’s cheap. The other reason you may go for it is because it looks quite fancy and modern when viewed in furniture catalogues. However, it’s very important that you actually check for weakness on the actual item as the weak edges and spots can give in very quickly, leading to wear and tear in a short amount of time.

4. Go for quality, instead of quantity
This applies to most of the things that you’ll buy for your new home. You’ll only want the best items that are going to last long. Cheap quality furniture is not priced high, and high quality furniture doesn’t come at a cheap price. While both of them may look to offer the same in terms of quality and other features, there’s a whole lot of difference, which you find out later on. Don’t fill your new home with junk, and go for quality pieces of furniture that fits in your budget.

5. Warranty and after-sales services
When it comes to select furniture that’s of high quality, the after-sales services are going to play an important role. All quality manufacturers give out warranty, which acts insurance, allowing you to change the furniture that didn’t turn out to be as good as promised with a quality replacement. Conclusion Finding quality furniture is not as difficult as it might seem, and these tips will help you to make wise decisions that will make your new home thank you.

Great tips! We had a horrible experience with a local furniture dealer. Our leather love seat cracked just as the warranty came to an end. Horrible after care. Never going back again. Will check out Broyhill. Thanks for sharing.

This is a great article. Definitely useful and informative. We don't always remember to pay attention to the details when excited and in the moment of shopping - it's best to heed these warnings and "rules of furniture shopping." Thanks for sharing!

These are some awesome rules for selecting quality furniture. I despise shopping for new furniture. In fact, I have to get a new mattress for the baby in a few months. He got a new big boy bed passed down from my sister in law and we tossed the mattress.
