10 common mistakes when buying home furniture…

 Are you thinking about buying new kitchen furniture, living room furniture or a new bedroom suite? If the answer is yes, then check out our top 10 common mistakes when buying home furniture.

  1. The furniture doesn’t fit

One big mistake when choosing living room furniture is not measuring it properly, so ensure your measurements are accurate (get someone else to double check) before making your purchase.

  1. It doesn’t work to the scale of the room

Dining room furniture should enable movement around the table and you don’t want chairs to block a doorway.

  1. It doesn’t work with your needs

Buying a set of dining chairs that look good, but won’t fit around your table, is a waste of money. Always take time to consider the furniture and ask if it will work for you.

  1. You buy on impulse

This is a mistake that many of us have made and often regret. Never buy on impulse and always do your research.

  1. It’s not practical

Dining chairs need to be sturdy, support your weight and be comfortable. If your chosen furniture is not practical, then don’t buy it.

  1. It’s cheap and of a poor quality

Never opt for poor quality furniture because it’s cheap, as it simply won’t last and will cost you more in the long run.

  1. It looks good but it’s not comfortable

Don’t buy on looks alone. Furniture is made to be used, to be sat on and to be enjoyed. It’s not all about the looks.

  1. You’re not using your whole budget

It’s important to carefully calculate how much you can spend and what the best product is for your budget. Never opt for the cheapest item when you can pay a bit more.

  1. You buy a complete set when you don’t need one

If you don’t need a complete set then don’t buy one, no matter how tempting the offer might be. Shop around and buy individual dining chairs for an eclectic look.

  1. Your friend has a stunning dining table

Just because your friend has a stunning dining table, doesn’t mean that it will work in your dining room. Buy for you.
