1. LOCATION OF FURNITURE IN THE HOME
Figure out where will be its permanent resting place in the home.
2. TYPE OF FURNITURE
Is it a Decorative or Functional piece, Fixed or Mobile, Single use or Multi-purpose
Are you looking for a Traditional, Casual, Country, Eclectic or Contemporary setting,
which is divided into 2 categories, Casual Contemporary and Modern Contemporary.
4. COVERING MATERIAL
Your full attention must be given to the type of covering on a desired sofa to the finish
on your case goods. However, sometimes it is really hard to figure the makeup of your
case goods but generally it is veneer over MDF(medium density fiberboard). In the case of an upholstered sofa, you should be interested to know if the material is color fast, water and stain resistant. You should also know that if your sofa is covered with silk, it will deteriorate rapidly with sunlight.
5. STRUCTURAL QUALITIES
The quality of furniture usually coincide with its cost, so, most of the time YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. Care should be given to the initial cost, type of MAINTENANCE and REPLACEMENT parts required for its upkeep. Always remember that some of the time, specifications are different in the manufacturing of commercial, residential, industrial and institutional furniture, therefore, you may endure mega problems if you purchase furniture for residential use and utilize it for rentals or in a commercial environment.
6. TEXTURE, MANIFESTATION AND COLOR
The appearance of the furniture you purchase tells a story about your personality. You must be certain the color, feel, consistency and appearance are all synchronized to your
likeness and you will ultimately be able to live with it for a very long time.
7. COMFORT AND PHYSICAL PROPORTION
In the case of a sofa and you been a very tall person, care should be given to a sofa that you can comfortably lay into and stretch out. You don’t need to buy a deep deck sofa if you are only 5 feet tall. And, there is no need to purchase a sofa with the seat cushions 20” high and bypass the one with a seat height of 17 inches. Purchasing your furniture should be about you and not about your friends, neighbors and what your parents had.
Most new furniture comes with 1 year warranty. However, most of your problem with the furniture will definitely show it manifestation soon after the year past. Seem strategically planned, huh! Maybe it is. Companies like AA Elegant furniture offer extended warranties,
maintenance and repair service programs for overcoming those fears.

10. STORE REPUTATION
Find out how the store handle its customer service requests from past customers, how was the experience when they immediately call in damages on delivered furniture, how was the warranty handled and how long it took to open and close the damage request. It is one of those stores that have amnesia about a customer, the next minute after a customer purchase is concluded
11. NEW FURNITURE POINTS OF ENTRY AND ACCESS TO ITS PERMANENT SPOT
Is the furniture going upstairs and can it be easily maneuvered around and up the staircase. Is the large second floor window the only entryway for the size furniture you are thinking of purchasing?
