When choosing living room furniture sets, quality should come before price. However, if you are on a tight budget, as many of us are, you should try to get the best you possibly can within the constraints of your budget. It is generally better to purchase fewer items of higher quality, than more items of lower quality.
Look around the different ranges offered by some of the better-known manufacturers, such as Stickley Furniture, Sherrill Furniture, Southwood and American Craftsman. If you have the money, check out The Custom Shoppe for what they can do for you with your budget. They can custom-design furniture to meet your needs, though the prices are naturally higher than the standard ranges.
A lot depends on the size of your living room. If you are short of space then a sectional sofa is likely better, because you can then use a corner of the room to connect two longer pieces of sofa by means of a wedge. That is making the best use of the space available to you, and avoids cluttering up a small room with large pieces of furniture in the middle of the floor.
Compare the prices offered by the various furniture manufacturers, and then come to a decision. Make sure that what you purchase is suitable for the design and size of your room. A common error is to buy pieces that are too large and bulky for your living room - that's a waste of money and will not do your room justice. You don't want to pack your room full of furniture, just with what you need.
Before making your decision and simply purchasing something that catches your eye, you should first decide what theme you would like for your room: a modern, antique or traditional colonial style for example? Then check out what is available online in the form of living room furniture sets that match your theme. Make sure your set is cheaper than buying the items individually - that is usually the case, and sometimes you may be able to haggle and negotiate a lower price.
Make sure you purchase solid furniture that isn't going to break or become unstable through hard use, and the fabrics you choose are sensible and easily cleaned - also easily repaired if you have young children or pets. Do not purchase cheap just because you can buy more - it's better to have one well-made high quality sofa than two made of matchwood and plastic.
