The Do’s & Don’ts of Furniture Shopping

Furniture Options

Shopping for new furniture can be a pain. If you don’t know what to do, or more importantly what NOT to do, you might be looking at a tough task.

The right furniture can turn your house or apartment into a home. Each room has its own furniture needs; here are some pointers for enriching your home’s ambience while getting a great deal in the process.


  • Get a feel of the piece

Before buying a furniture piece like a sofa or a mattress, check if it’s comfortable enough for you. Sit on it, lie on it, after looking around to see if anyone’s watching, maybe even give it a little bounce! Feeling out furniture before buying can be a good indicator for whether you are getting your money’s worth.

Don’t hesitate to act when you find the right piece for your home aesthetic, is buying too much of a commitment for you? Try rent to own furniture so that you can get a better sense of what you’re buying before making a long-term commitment.

  • Research

We’re all looking for cheap furniture, but that doesn’t mean that we should sacrifice on quality. To make sure you get the best bang for your buck, you have to know exactly what you want by doing quality research.

Before making a decision, you have to consider design, style, utility, durability, material & color. If you make the right choices, you won’t be buying new furniture for a while, so it’s important to buy pieces that will fit your home now and in the future.

Looking at various price points is also important, especially with sales around the corner. Scour the internet for offline and online furniture stores so you can find the best deal for you. If new furniture is too expensive for you, look into used furniture for more affordable options.

  • Clear your doubts

Ask as many questions about your favorite piece as possible. If you want to buy a coffee table for example, you might have questions about its material, make, etc. Remember, buying furniture is a big investment, so clear your doubts before buying.


  • Buy a piece you won’t use

We get it, discounts are irresistible. But before buying the first thing you find on sale, match your living space’s aesthetic.

Furniture should elevate your place’s ambience & vibe. If you have any doubts, try out rental furniture options to ensure you’re not committing too soon.

  • Ignore the measurements

To avoid the disappointment of your furniture being too big for your apartment, take accurate measurements where you plan on fitting your new dining table or a sofa. Then when you go to the store, you’ll know exactly what to look for. When buying online, make sure you look at the dimensions so you can decide accordingly.

  • Ignore utility

Style might catch your eye, but utility is king when buying furniture online or in person. The last thing you want is throwing your hard-earned money down the drain by buying something you don’t need. Purchase furniture that fulfills utility first, style second.


Now that you know some important pointers for buying furniture, you’ll have an easier time shopping. At Inhabitr, we provide exquisite furniture that checks the boxes, featuring utility, style and affordability!

One of the hardest aspects of buying new furniture is the commitment which comes along with the purchase. Inhabitr makes that process more efficient by allowing customers to rent quality furniture at an affordable price. With free delivery and returns, renting furniture has never been easier.

With a diverse range of sets for your living room, bedroom, baby, outdoor space and more, the power is firmly in your hands. If you want to make the most informed decision on your home’s next furniture piece, check out what we have in store for you here!
