Know the space you are shopping for extremely well. Its hard to buy furniture for a room you barely know. If you arent sure of the height of your walls, the other furniture thats in there, and how it all works together, get in the room and spend some time there. Itll help you make smart decisions.
If you want to save money on furniture, consider alternatives to traditional shopping. Goodwill stores sometimes have pieces. Check out yard and garage sales. Also peruse Craiglist or local Freecycle options. Any community of some size has a secondary market of furniture not on showroom floors. Even consider going to storage locker auctions. If you see a piece you like, talk to the winning bidder for that locker.
Fabric alignment is an important feature you need to check when youre buying a couch with patterned fabric. On some cheaper pieces of furniture, different sections of fabric might not line up properly. Remember that you will have to look at your sofa everyday, so it might be worth it to spend a little extra for a fabric that looks perfect. Pick a different couch if the upholstery looks low-quality.
