Oldie but Not so Goodie: How to Tell it's Time to Replace Your Furniture

family planning

Are you thinking about using the second hand sofa that you got when you moved into your first apartment after college as the centerpiece of the living room in the home you just bought?

Please think again! While you and your old sofa have definitely shared some good times, it's time to invest in new furniture for your new home. Your old sofa just won't look right when you set it up in your new living room space.

Many people have a hard time getting rid of old furniture and replacing it with new furniture. They form connections with the old furniture they're familiar with and struggle to let it go.

But there is going to come a time when you'll need to say goodbye to your old dining room table, your old dresser, and, yes, even your old couch. Here's how to tell it's time to replace furniture.

Your Furniture Is Falling Apart.

Are there holes popping up all over the place on your sofa? Is there a phone book being used to prop up your dining room table? Has it become impossible to open and close the drawers in your dresser?

These are all obvious signs that you need to buy new furniture sooner than later.

You can try to fix small problems with a piece of furniture. For example, you can attempt to patch a hole in a couch to extend its lifespan.

But once those small problems start turning into big ones, replacing your furniture should be your only option.

It No Longer Fits the Style of Your Home

When you first purchased the furniture that you have in your house now, it likely fits the style of the rest of your home to perfection. But now that your style has evolved over time, your furniture might not match up with all of your other furnishings.

You could try and redecorate your whole house so that it works better with your old furniture. But if your furniture is so old that it's no longer in style, it's not worth the trouble. The right move is to find new furniture that will work well with the style of the rest of your house.

It Doesn't Fit Your Family's Needs

A few years ago, before you and your spouse had kids, the small table in your kitchen and the loveseat in your den were plenty big enough to fit the two of you.

But now that you have kids, you have to eat dinner in shifts since there isn't enough room at the table. You also have to listen to your kid's fight over who is going to sit on the loveseat.

It's time to buy bigger furniture that will fit your family's specific needs. If you're always trying to squeeze into your old furniture to make it work, it means it's time to buy new furniture right away.
