Do you need some new furniture? Are you about to move into a new house? Could you just be getting a larger house soon? Perhaps you have simply worn out your existing furniture. Whatever your reason may be, this article can provide some wise advise on how to purchase great furniture at the best price.
Check the bottom of any furniture you buy. Looks can be deceiving. Old furniture can sometimes be plagued by dry rot or rust.
Whenever you buy furniture made from wood, especially antiques, look beyond the surface. Always look inside and on the underside, paying special attention to the drawers. Most of the time a good visual inspection will allow you to get a better picture of its condition, as opposed to simply looking at the surface wood. Also known as secondary woods, you can learn about the wood’s quality and age through these surfaces.
