The quality

When buying furniture, the quality must be among your top consideration for any fabric you choose. Although you will end up spending a lot, a wise decision is to choose quality over trendy colorful furniture. Choosing neutral colors and high-quality furniture is a win for you because you can add some color by throwing bright pillows to it or using colorful curtains and décor. Also, if you love leather, be keen for terms like leather-match/like from your seller to avoid spending on furniture that is not leather. Instead, ask for top grain which is the highest quality of leather.

Frames and cushions

If the sofa you intend to buy has frames, check to see if it is at least 1 inch thick because if it is thinner, then you will end up with a squeaky sofa. Also, find out whether the wood used is hardwood and if so, ask if it has been kiln dried. This process ensures that all the moisture content has been removed from the wood to last it longer even with changes in humidity. Also, it prevents cracking, weakening, and buckling of the frame. For the cushions, look for the heavier ones because they will last longer due to their high quality. If the sofa has a spring system then it should be easy to feel when you press down the sofa.

The size

The size of the furniture you buy will have a great impact on your space. That is why you need to be keen on size when purchasing any kind of furniture. Don’t be fooled by the design into buying, it may not be a perfect fit for your space. If you have a smaller space, you can opt for multipurpose-furniture. Also, if you want bigger furniture, only get it if your space is big enough to accommodate it while leaving some space to move around freely. You want to walk in your house without always knocking your feet or knocking something over.

Proportionality

Proportionality is one of the important factors you need to look out for when buying your furniture. Most of the furniture like tables, lounges, and dining sets have to be proportional. Proportional furniture is a sign of professionalism and good quality. For instance, when buying furniture that has drawers, you need to check to see if the drawers are tilted. Tilted drawers may indicate poor quality. Also, if the interior of the drawers is rough then the quality is poor. Find a good Italian furniture store where excellent craftsmanship is guaranteed and you will spend less time cross-checking for proportionality on your furniture.
