This has led to the emergence of alternative materials like metal and plastic for furniture manufacture. Wood, however, has managed to retain its position among furniture enthusiasts. The expensiveness of fresh wood has led to the use of recycled wood in furniture. Here, wood is sourced from old buildings that are being torn down. Sometimes, old furniture is spruce up, painted and given a new updated look. This has also resulted in refurbished wooden furniture finding dedicated connoisseurs in the market.
But newlyweds should have enough patience to look through many second-hand stores and estate or moving sales. Home furnishing is a continuous process. Furniture pieces are replaced every now and then to suit both the functional and design needs of the young couple‘s home. If they started with used furniture, they may eventually upgrade to brand new pieces later on. The couple can also check some useful furniture shopping tips from online sites on how they can trade in their old furniture for new ones as a practical way to dispose of the old but still usable furniture. That way, they don‘t have to spend as much as they would if they don‘t trade in the old piece.
Naturally, next on your to-do-list is to inspect your furnishings for debris, and remove it accordingly. Lawn, garden, and patio furniture should be cleaned only according to manufacturer‘s specifications; but generally, most outdoor furniture can be cleaned with a mixture of water and mild detergent. Here‘s another hint: patio umbrellas must be washed or cleaned in the "open" position to allow cleaning of all their parts. Make sure that all outdoor furniture is allowed to dry before covering it. Otherwise, you could be inviting unwelcome mold to take up residence.
No part of the exterior should be chipped. If it is dented, you should consider a different piece. When you buy furniture, especially solid wood pieces, make sure that the surface is scratch resistant. They should also be easy to maintain. Painted solid wood furniture should also be painted well and evenly. Make sure you check the drawers especially when buying dressers and chests. The drawers should roll out perfectly. Also understand the drawer mechanism to make sure that it can be easily replaced when it finally gives out. Certain types of drawer tracks tend to be prone to damage and they might cause the drawer to get stuck.
