6 Furniture Pieces That Are Worth Splurging On

Furniture is one of the biggest investments for most people. It's also one that can last a lifetime. So it’s worth taking time to figure out what type of furniture will be best for you and your lifestyle and fortunately, some pieces make excellent long-term investments because they're made with higher quality materials and construction than others, meaning they'll stand the test of time better in terms of durability and strength.

Display Cabinets

Furniture pieces that are exposed to the elements risk being exposed to humidity, heat, and cold. When you find a display cabinet that's resistant to these factors, it may be worth investing in. Quite often, wood display cabinets are preferable as metal ones can rust and glass has to be treated carefully so as not to break it. Solid wood is the most expensive option, but it's also very durable.

In terms of design, contemporary pieces have clean lines that often look sleek and minimalistic. If you prefer a more traditional appearance, opt for a mirrored or white display cabinet as it doesn't just look stunning - it also reflects light, which will brighten up any room. There are many different designs you can choose from even under these styles and the only thing you should focus on is your personal preference.


You might also consider investing in quality drawers if you need a lot of storage space for clothing and other items that may not be as resistant to wear and tear as furniture while organizing your life will save you time and frustration.

Metal handles and runners are often preferable as they won't break as easily as plastic ones can, plus, they're easy to clean which is always a bonus when you have children or pets running around the house.

Drawers that are dovetail joints work well because they're neatly concealed and there's little chance of them falling apart. This is another benefit to solid wood furniture. If you choose otherwise, aim for drawers that have slides or rollers underneath to make it easier on your back when accessing items in the back of the drawer.

Dining Room Tables

Having a great dining room table is one of the best investments you can make when it comes to furniture. Not only will it last for many years, but it's also where your family and friends will gather around on multiple occasions. It should be able to withstand everyday use and not just look good - it should feel good, too.

Solid wood is preferable as it can come in a variety of colors and styles and is more likely to withstand the test of time than other materials. Table settings that are meant for 12 or 14 people may also be worth investing in as they're sturdier, even if they cost more money, to begin with.

Lighting Fixtures

Lighting in a home needs to be adjustable and efficient. This is where pendant lighting comes into play - they look great when hung from the ceiling, giving your room an instant makeover, and you can enjoy the full benefits of LED bulbs which last much longer than other types (which means you won't have to change them as often).

Wall sconces are another good choice as they can provide ambient lighting, which is perfect for setting the mood or making your living room appear warmer. Touch lamps (also known as sensor lamps) are also advantageous because you won't have to fumble around in the dark trying to switch them on and off - simply wave your hand over them and they'll turn on and off.

Couches and Sofas

Couches and sofas are essential for living rooms and family rooms. After all, you want to be able to sit down comfortably without worrying about your furniture falling apart or discoloration after a short while.

The most durable ones are made of leather as it's more resistant to tears, marks, and dents (though you should still take precautions). If you're looking at a fabric option, be sure that it has double stitching on the couch itself and the back pillows as they're the first things to come loose or rip.

Bedroom Furniture

You'll spend a lot of time in the bedroom, whether you're sleeping over or not, so it's worth investing in comfortable and high-quality bedding. This includes high thread count sheets that are easy to maintain (such as cotton), comforters that will last for many years if properly cared for (heirloom quality is usually best in this case), and quality mattresses that will put less strain on your back than cheaper ones. Especially mattresses investing, consider a good mattress pad if you want to protect your investment.

Many more pieces of furniture are worth splurging on, just as long as you choose quality over price. Look for solid wood construction that will last for many years to come and don't be afraid of spending money on durable items.
