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.
As regards the wood, be careful in selecting it properly. Certain conditions would determine the type of wood you‘ll want i.e. hardwood or softwood. For instance, if you plan to use the furniture outdoors, you have to select hardwood that can withstand the elements of nature better. They warp less and also absorb lesser amounts of water. Oak and teak are the two best woods that can be used outdoors. If you plan to use your furniture indoors, you can go for some variety of softwood like mango wood or rosewood. Indian sheesham is also used extensively for the manufacture of indoor furniture. As already said, the placement issue plays another big role in determining the furniture that you want to buy. You must always have an idea of the space available to place your furniture. This is because you may have trouble if you find that you have bought a furniture item and there‘s insufficient space to keep it. It would be nothing short of a disaster. Also, too small a furniture piece at a relatively larger space would be an eyesore.
