A scoring system for furniture shopping Posted on 24 Sep 15:31

What people look for in furniture: 

1) BEAUTY - Personal appeal, attraction factor. Do I love it?

2) FUNCTION - Will it do what I need?

3) DURABILITY - How long will it last?

4) AFFORDABLE - Does it fit my buying power?

Next time you shop for furniture, give the piece POINTS on a scale of 1 to 10 in these categories to see if you have a winner!

For example:
I am considering this dresser.
BEAUTY score: 6
FUNCTION: 9
DURABLE: 3
AFFORDABLE: 4

Conclusion: NOT a winner, because in the long run, even though I like it, it will not last as long as I need it to, considering what I paid for it.
