Choose your fabric and colors based on your lifestyle. If you have children or pets, it is best to steer clear of delicate fabrics and light colors. These will be worn through and stained in no time. A darker, sturdier fabric will hold up to the abuse, and hides many stains.
When youre buying furniture for your living room, think about whether you want slipcovers. You may be able to go with a more affordable piece if you know you can slipcover it. You might even want to look at slipcovers first to see if you like the slipcover look, as well as to size slipcovers for any piece you may see.
Know what the return policy and warranty are for any piece of furniture you are looking into buying. Even if youre totally in love with the piece, you must know what options you have if there are issues. If its an "as is" purchase, do extra homework upfront to know that the piece is the right one for you.
