The How-To Guide for buying affordable Furniture

January 23, 2013

Since the days of the cavemen, furniture has been an essential item to every living space. Times have changed (we no longer just use rocks for chairs) and knowing how and what furniture to buy is incredibly important.

Here is a simple little guide for your next furniture purchase.

#1 – Decide what you would like to buy. Whether it is living room, dining room, theater room, bathroom, kitchen or bedroom furniture, you will need to narrow it down. There are millions of choices when deciding to buy furniture. Figuring out your style and what you deem as needs vs. wants will greatly help you when making the choice on your new purchase.

Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

– Is quality important?
– Is the brand important?
– Is price the most important?
– Is style the most important?

While everyone wants the perfect style, that will last until the end of time and be super inexpensive, that is not realistic. Prioritize your list.

#2 – Establish a budget. Unless you are an heir to Warren Buffet, you probably don’t have an infinite amount of money. Decide how much you want to spend. While this can change as you learn about furniture , you won’t be able to buy a $5000 couch set with $2000. Learn about financing options and take advantage of great furniture deals. Most reputable companies will offer 6 or 12 months no interest financing plans. Some companies even offer layaway programs.

#3 – Shop online. In a digital age, save yourself a bunch of money and take your shopping online. It will save you a ton of time and a lot of cash. It is hard to understand why people walk right into a store pay a super high price and never even looked online. If you are in dire need for a piece of furniture, I guess I can understand. However, if you are looking to save money, this is the first place you should start. It is an incredibly rare day when you can buy a big-ticket item like furniture in a store for less than you can online. With tax, commissions to that great salesman, delivery fees and other fees you will save a bundle if you can be a patient. Look for a website that offers free shipping and special offers . You will be surprised how much money you can save.

In short, it is possible to buy extremely quality furniture without extreme pain to the wallet. With a little research, patience and shrewdness, you can save yourself a lot of money purchasing furniture. If you need a place to start, we recommend going online. Rather than driving all over town looking at furniture stores , you can search thousands of products online in just a few minutes. Nothing is faster at narrowing down your search than a quick Google search. Look for product reviews and go for it.
