Here are some tips to help you decide on the right kind of furniture for you:
Is it Easy to Assemble?
Does it come already assembled, or is it quite simple to assemble? What tools will you need? Are the instructions in English and easy to read and follow?
Will it Last?
Does the furniture you’re buying have a warranty? Is it sturdy and strong? Is it real wood or particle board? Look close, because sometimes they’ll trick you and put a thin layer of veneer over the particle board to look like wood.
Is it Safe?
Look at your furniture from top to bottom and make sure it’s safe. Look for things like:
Position of nails
Smoothness (no slivers)
Does it Need to be Portable or Versatile?
Do you need to be able to tuck things away when you’re not using them? For instance, a small desk on wheels that you can roll into a corner, or a desk that can be shut up into an armoire are two great options.
Is Your Desk and Chair the Right Height?
Make sure your desk and chair are the right height for you. Sit in the chair at the store, then put the chair up to the desk. Make sure your feet are comfortably on the floor, and the desktop is at a good distance to work from. (Read More)
