When trying to buy a couch, try to find one that will last for a while and is also very comfortable to you. Be sure that the cushions are supported with springs. Serpentine springs are acceptable but eight-way, hand-tied springs are better. To find out the type of springs a sofa has, remove the cushions from the couch and press on the seat. The good ones will be placed close together and should be firm.
When looking at furniture for a home office, get pieces that can be used in a multitude of ways. This helps ensure that you make the most of your tight space. For example, a printer can be put on an armoire. When you aren’t printing, the room seems neat because you are able to close up the armoire.
A solid well-made frame is essential to a good and comfortable sofa. The board needs to be more than 1 inch thick. If the sofa’s board is thinner than that, the sofa will squeak. Try sitting on the sofa you are interested in and move around to see if the sofa makes any noises.
Measure the space where you are going to put your furniture prior to buying it. It doesn’t matter if you’re buying a side table or a bed, you need to know the size of the area you have to work with. If you guess then you run the risk of it being terribly wrong. Larger pieces mean this is a must.
