    Default How to shop for the furniture ???

    Selecting a furniture is a daunting task. we are always confused when go for a shopping. Here are some tips for how to shop for the furniture ?

    1.Decide What You Need
    Measure the space where you'll put the new piece, keeping in mind that you'll need room between other pieces for walking and traffic patterns. You might want a sofa but realize that you really only have room for a loveseat or a pair of armless chairs. Write the numbers down so that you can confirm them when you find something that you like.

    2.Set Your Budget
    There's nothing more discouraging than finding a piece you can't afford. Set you budget and don't look at things that would break the bank. While it's a good idea to buy the most expensive and best constructed piece of furniture that you can afford, you wouldn't want to spend every penny you have available on one piece of furniture and then not be able to paint the walls!

    3.Plan Ahead
    Do some research on the internet. Find the websites for furniture manufacturers and see what they have to offer. You'll most likely be able to see everything that each company makes, get exact dimensions of each piece, see the different finishes available, and see the pieces arranged in decorator rooms. If you see something you really like, you can order the company's catalogue to be sent to your home.

    4.Learn All You Can Without Leaving Your Home
    If you find a piece you like, look at the fabric options or wood finishes available. Try to picture the piece in your home. Locate a store in your area that carries the line of furniture you've found. Check their opening hours.

    Research and become familiar with style/period names of those you like best.The Internet is also a great source for information and pictures of different furniture styles.Learn to recognize any feature that could affect a piece's value or authenticity such as damage to the surface or structure, or replaced hardware.Become acquainted with antique dealers and visit an antique furniture shop to discuss your particular needs and interests. If they don't have what you're looking for at the time, keep in mind that they have sources and associates in other areas of the country and world who can assist in finding the right piece for you.Look through antique publications for ads, or search on the Internet for antique furniture shows and flea markets that specialize in furniture.

    I think one of the first things is to set a budget so you can target your research, look around for what you really want for the best price. Always remember to measure up properly and make sure it can be delivered through the door!

    As for me it seems rather hard to make plans for future shopping and purchasing. Even my budget can't show me a real picture of the shopping scale. I do always buy everything and don't care about its necessity for me and my family. Now I try to quit this habit.

    Well, It's little bit easy to shop for furniture. You just need to know what you look for. If you look for wood furniture than check following things.

    -Legs & other structural parts made from solid wood.
    -Pieces made of the kiln-dried hardwood, such as mahogany, oak and walnut.
    -Legs on chairs & tables secured by screw-on wooden blocks.
    -Center glides on drawers corresponding glides on frames.
    -Reinforcing blocks at the fronts of drawers.
    -Drawer joints that are dovetailed front and back.

    You have good share and one more thing that lots of people fall in love the looks of a certain piece of furniture, but take a movement to read the care instructions. Reflect on how the piece will hold up after a few encounters with your small children.
