It’s time to shop for new living room furniture. Where do you start? It may seem the easiest to just but all the pieces in a display that is set up in the store showroom. However, you need to consider your particular house and your particular lifestyle.
Research all your options
You don’t have to stick with the basics. There are sofas with reclining seats; recliners that rock and swivel; cocktail tables that lift up into dining tables. What features are you looking for in new living room furniture?
This chocolate microfiber Acme sectional is not just a sofa; it’s also a convertible sleeper and storage unit. It is a sleek, modern piece that has plenty of space for storage. It comes with two accent pillows.
Consider your lifestyle
Expensive fabrics may look great in your living room, but do you have children or pets in the house? If so, you might need something that is more durable and washable. If you have little people with dirty fingers in the house, a glass top coffee table might not be your best bet.
A Coaster Darie Bonded Leather sectional is more practical for pet-owners than microfiber and other materials that collect fur. This piece features a left chaise and a matching ottoman. While leather can stain, it is easy to prevent because leather is easy to clean.
Compare quality and price
Price and budget are huge considerations when you are buying new living room furniture, but you may not get the quality you are looking for if you are not willing to spend a little extra money. If quality is not an issue, then you might be able to get away with spending less money. Remember, you get what you pay for.
An oak Bombe Chest Cabinet with a black marble top might cost a little more than you want to spend, but you have to consider how much wear and tear it will go through. A cheaply made storage cabinet might save you a few hundred dollars, but how long will it last? At $460 to $678, this chest will likely cost you less money in the long run.
When it’s time to shop for new living room furniture, make sure to research all your options, consider your lifestyle and to compare quality and price.
