Happlify: the best shopping guide + blog

Are your sofa, coffee table, chairs and dresser years old? Then you may have gotten tired of this by now. In that case it is time for new furniture. You don't have to search for this for long, because there are countless websites where you can order furniture. Don't rush into this overnight, because there are a few things you need to take into account. In this article we list 5 of them for you.

1 Size

When you buy new furniture, you obviously want it to fit in the room. This may seem obvious, but unfortunately it often happens that people buy furniture that is (much) too large. Do you want to prevent this? Then make sure you know exactly how big the room is. This makes it easy to estimate whether a sofa, table or sideboard fits or not. If in doubt, choose a piece of furniture that is slightly smaller, so that you can be sure that you are sitting comfortably.

2 Material

A second point of attention is the material from which a piece of furniture is made. Nowadays furniture is made from all kinds of different materials. For example, the seating area of ​​a new sofa can be covered with fabric, but also with leather. Make sure you know the pros and cons of both materials before making a choice.

There is also a difference in material for other furniture. Cabinets and (coffee) tables are often made of wood, but we are also increasingly seeing combinations of multiple materials. For example, the base of a table or cupboard is sometimes made of steel. This gives a piece of furniture a sturdy, robust appearance.

3 Style

Because a lot of furniture is sold online, you may not know where to start your search. Therefore, first determine which style you prefer before you start looking for new furniture. Do you want to furnish your home according to the country style? Then you can filter the offer. You will then only see furniture that belongs to this style. This means you don't have to go through all the furniture and that saves you a lot of time.

4 Budget

Of course, you also have to take your budget into account when looking for new furniture. If you spend more than you originally planned, you may regret it later. By drawing up a budget in advance, you will hopefully prevent this. This way you know exactly how much you can spend on new furniture. Just make sure that you adhere to this.

5 Quality

We conclude this article with perhaps the most important point of attention: quality. Because you don't want a piece of furniture to break in no time. Therefore, do not randomly choose the cheapest furniture. You may save money in the short term, but in the long term it could cost you a lot more. High-quality furniture usually has a longer lifespan, so you don't have to replace it as quickly. Therefore, let yourself be guided by quality rather than price.
