Buying new furniture for your home should be enjoyable and exciting, not a job you feel is one step up from paying taxes. But for many homeowners and renters, the thought of buying sofas, beds, wardrobes, and accent pieces feels like a chore due to the sheer choice of items available.
However, with a bit of preparation and research, you can enjoy the furniture shopping process as much as you will enjoy nestling into that new armchair or sofa you eventually buy!
Follow our tips, so furniture buying is something you look forward to, rather than avoid.
Set a Budget
What you can afford is the deciding factor for any purchase you make, and buying furniture is no exception. Budgeting is important when choosing furniture. You don't want to spend all your money on large items like the bed, dining table, and sofa, leaving nothing over for accent pieces that are usually essential to get the look you want.
Learning how to judge quality will help you find the best value items within your price range. Factors that influence cost include:
- Design - Is the item an original, a reproduction, or an adaptation
- Materials - Is the furniture made from natural wood? If so, it will cost more than veneer or simulated timbre furniture.
- The manufacturing process - Is it handcrafted, or factory mass-produced?
- Shipping and assembly - Pre-assembled furniture usually costs more than flat-packed items designed for you to assemble at home.
Separate Wants from Needs
After setting your budget, make a list of everything you want to buy, then divide the list into two parts: "Wants" and "Needs". There is a good chance your wants section will be longer than the needs part. Replacing a broken sofa is probably necessary but buying a fabulous new dining room set when you already have a perfectly good one is likely to be a want. Acknowledge you don't need to have it all now, and some things can go on the back burner.
Evaluate your Lifestyle
How your household uses furniture is an essential factor to think about when buying. If you have pets or young children, you need items with robust structure and easy-to-clean elements. If you're buying for a room that is not used frequently, such as a guest room, you can concentrate more on looks than practicality.
Your lifestyle will also determine the colour of the materials you pick. The guidelines here are common sense: white or cream is a no-no with young children and pets, whereas mid-to dark colours or dark grey will hide many sins.
Evaluate the Space
You can only have so many furniture items in a room before it becomes cramped and looks awkward. But having said that, you need to make sure you have enough seating and surfaces.
Buy Furniture You Personally Like

Make Storage a Priority
From books to cosmetics, jackets to accessories, it can be challenging to keep a bedroom organized. Invest in adequate storage to keep your bedroom as tidy and clutter-free as possible. If you have a small bedroom, consider a divan bed with built-in drawers. Any chests or dressers you buy should have plenty of drawers and shelves, so you have enough space to organise clothing and accessories.
Furnishing a bedroom is not just about a bed and dresser. You can finish the bedroom aesthetic with accessories to add a touch of personality to your space. Large mirrors hung on the back of a door or a wall if you have space, adds brightness, and makes the room appear larger. A brightly coloured rug will bring warmth into the bedroom while also providing a soft surface to walk on. Area rugs look especially good in bedrooms with hardwood flooring.
The bedding you use also helps create an individual aesthetic. Whether it's a duvet in a solid colour or a vibrant set, go for bedding and extra cushions to enhance the bedroom's décor.
Hang artwork on the wall or place your favourite framed photos on a dresser. These types of accessories will give the room a personal touch.
