Buying guides

Our buyers share their knowledge of everything you need to know about the furniture, home accessories and products you want in your home, so that you can be confident you’re making the right choice.


We know that sometimes the process of buying furniture can leave you scratching your head and feeling, well, a little daunted. How big can you go with that wardrobe? Will that coveted sofa fit through your door? What’s the best kind of frame and mount for a photograph? And how often should you change – and turn – your mattress? Most importantly of all: will that piece of furniture work with your existing scheme? Our Habitat buying guides aim to tell you all you need to know, in a digestible, easy-to-use way that’ll inspire you to make the right choice.
