Much like cost and livable style, the construction of the piece is important. You want to shop for furniture that’s made with high-quality materials to be sure that it’ll last for years without getting creaky or wobbly. It’s also important to take plenty of measurements to make sure that your space matches the dimensions listed in the description for the item at 1StopBedrooms. As a general rule, you want to leave at least three feet of clearance all around to allow for maximum flexibility and movement.

It’s also important to figure out how you intend on using the furniture. If you plan on entertaining quite a bit and want the ability to seat plenty of guests at one time, consider investing in a sofa will plenty of space to accommodate multiple guests—you may also want to add in a few chairs and a loveseat as your space allows. If you live in a snug apartment, you can shop for shorter sofas that will easily fit into a variety of spaces.

Another thing to take into account when shopping is the visual weight of an item. Even if the piece technically fits into your space with sufficient clearance, the design, color, and materials can all affect how it fills the space according to the eye. To create a more open atmosphere for a small space—like an apartment—consider purchasing a table with a glass surface to create the illusion of openness.

The second is the low-price guarantee on the highest quality furniture available online—including pieces from the brands you know and trust—by purchasing directly from the manufacturer. The third is the incredible amount of selections without the stocking limits that typically come with in-person retail.
