Buying Furniture for the First Time

Buyers Guide / June 30,2013

Choosing a large furniture item such as a lounge suite is a major decision but taking time to consider lifestyle and cost factors can help buyers make the right purchase, first time.

Style

Buyers should decide what sort of style they are aiming for in advance. A lounge suite is often the focal point and dictates the overall style of a living room space. Whether buyers want clean lines or something more classical, they should attempt to harmonise the living room d?cor to match.

Quality 

Buyers should choose quality materials and go for craftsmanship, since these tend to last longer. Linen, wool, and leather are good choices but keep in mind that these will need some level of maintenance.

Comfort

Take a seat in the lounge or at the table to check if it's comfortable. The furniture item should accommodate everyone in the family, particularly elderly members.

Lifestyle

A furniture item should always suit a buyer's lifestyle. Dark colours and waterproof materials are a better choice in a home with young children and pets, for example.
