- “Buy the best sofa you can afford,” advises Juestel. Try to sit or lie on the piece before you buy, and if you can afford it,upgrade your cushions from solid foam to foam wrapped in down. If you do most of your sitting in the family room rather than the living room, spend the money on those pieces, instead of on pieces that’ll never get used.
- ... stick to furniture stores. Caccoma is not a fan of buying furniture from department stores, she says, because furniture is not their primary business, so the quality varies and the styles might not be current. Also, avoid fly-by-night operations. “Buy things from places where if there’s a problem, you know they’ll stand behind their product,” she advises.
- When shopping for cabinets, look for drawers with dovetail joints in the corners.
