Pay Attention to User Reviews
User reviews can often provide keen insight into a piece of furniture’s quality. Reviews can also let you know about any possible defects or false advertisements beforehand so you don’t waste your money or time on a faulty product.
Furniture with mostly one- or two-star reviews should be avoided. Reviewers will typically go into more detail about a poor rating, but, if you see something bombarded with low reviews, it is usually for a good reason. Sometimes the item is a scam that doesn’t work correctly or isn’t the quality it’s listed as. Other times, poor reviews may just be for shipping-related reasons.
Reading a handful of both positive and negative user reviews can give you a much better picture of how good a piece of furniture actually is. Reading reviews is especially important for big-ticket items such as televisions, beds and sofas.
