Buying New Furniture – When Is It Time?

Are your sofa or chair cushions showing signs of wear? If its leather, maybe the seat cushions are discolored, lighter in the seat area than the rest of the sofa or chair. If its fabric, see if the upholstery threads are pulling apart or discolored. If your furniture is showing signs of wearing, its time to consider new furniture or at least slip covering options.

Are there holes in your furniture? You might be able to stitch or patch the holes if the rest of the piece is structurally sound. Otherwise, start thinking about new furniture.

When you rise from the seat, does the cushion remain sunken? Check the springs to see if that’s the problem. If a broken or stretched spring is the culprit, the problem can probably be repaired, maybe even by yourself if you happen to be handy in that way. If the springs look okay, maybe you just need a new cushion. Take a cushion with you to an upholstery shop or fabric store to show the salesperson what kind of cushion you need to replace the bad one. It’s a good idea to take a good cushion with you so the salesperson can help match the cushion to the firmness and density you want to replace the bad cushion with.

Is the frame of your furniture still in good shape? If a sofa or chair has been dropped, it might crack a wooden frame. Flip your furniture upside down and take a look.

Does your furniture sit level? If its not level, check the frame. Check the legs to make sure a peg is not missing. If you cant spot the problem, its time to buy new furniture.

When you sit on your furniture, do you feel the arms separate from the rest of the frame? Maybe you have a problem that can be solved with wood glue and a few clamps. Otherwise, for safety’s sake, get rid of your old furniture.

When you sit down, do you feel wood or a frame sticking out? Consider that poke in the behind your official cue to be buying new furniture!

If you know its time to replace the old look of your furniture, decide if the update can be done with a simple slipcover. By measuring the furniture properly, a slipcover either purchased ready made or custom made if your furniture has an unusual shape or curve to it you can get a nice fit. Slipcovers range in price starting at about $40. The better fabric you select, the higher the price. If you just want to update your furniture for a few more months until you save enough money to buy an all-new ensemble, slipcovers are the way to go.

Furniture Shopping Gulfport

Look at your home’s furnishings. Does it make you feel happy or sad? You have to make sure you get it right, whether you’re replacing all the furniture in your room or just purchasing one piece. The following article will advise you of how to do just that.

Always check the inner composition of furniture and don’t be fooled by a pretty surface or veneer. You should be inspecting the underside of the furniture as well as the drawers and other pieces. Most of the time a good visual inspection will allow you to get a better picture of its condition, as opposed to simply looking at the surface wood. The undersides of wooden pieces is also known as secondary woods.

Test out all pieces you are thinking of purchasing. You may be intrigued by an online piece, but until you try it yourself, it can be tough to judge its true quality. You might discover that it’s too firm or you don’t like the way the material feels. Buying in person is usually a better choice.

Furniture Shopping – Neutral Pieces

Neutral is the color palette to choose. Neutral pieces make decorating easier. With neutral pieces, you can match the decor and you’ll have more options. Your home can easily incorporate neutral colored furniture.

Bring in a color sample from your wall treatment when considering furniture. You might want a piece, but it doesn’t match. Avoid that at all costs. Instead, visit a hardware store to obtain matching paint swatches, or take pictures of your room colors and compare them to the furniture you are considering buying.

Hopefully, after reading this article, you feel ready to make wise furniture purchasing decisions. Put these tips to work for you. Do your research, understand the pricing and really look into the quality of the furniture. Take your knowledge and go find the furniture of your dreams.
