Before you shop, do some browsing—in stores and online. Taking the time to window-shop will help you learn your options and average costs before you settle on something you see on the showroom floor. Rely on reviews from reputable sources to determine the quality of the stores you're visiting as well as the brands and pieces you'd like to buy. This is especially important if you're planning on ordering online, where you cannot see, touch, or test out the furniture in person. If your favorite chair or sofa has mostly negative reviews, you should probably reconsider your purchase rather than becoming another disappointed customer.
