4. Coordinate Colors Your apartment furnishings will look more cohesive if they all follow the same basic color scheme. Decide on your color palette and stick to it with everything you buy. This gives you more versatility for moving pieces between rooms at a later date. For example, you might choose to purchase dark wood furniture and focus on blues for the fabrics and accent pieces. 5. Be Flexible Even though its good to have a plan, you should also have an open mind when you are actually out shopping for apartment furniture. If you are at a consignment store and see something that calls to you, go ahead and buy it, but just make sure to adjust your plan in light of your purchase.
When you go to buy a couch, sofa or love seat, make sure the room you plan to place it in can house your selected piece of furniture and leave room for you and your family and guests to walk through and around the room easily and comfortably. A good rule of thumb is to leave eighteen inches of cleared space around a piece of furniture for people to walk though and for traffic to flow easily. Additionally, take measurements of your empty wall space so you can select paintings, wall hangings or other decorative objects to accessorize and dress the room. Most importantly, be sure to take these measurements along with you when you shop so you avoid buying apartment furniture that is either too large or too small for your space.
Once you find if the item is preassembled, you can double check the materials that were used. A sign of lower quality is the use of laminates instead of real hard wood. As an example, typically you can tell the difference in flooring from a laminated wood over a hard wood. Next, if the wood is not actually wood instead it is a particle board or MDF (medium density fiber board, somewhat like particle board) that cuts down on the construction material costs, lowers your price but typically reduces the quality of the piece. So your second question should be what are the materials in this hotel furniture?
I said, why spend so much for a door knob, it was just a knob. She reminded me of the agreement, and all I had to do was to shut up and go with it. We went to this hardware shop, and there were all sorts of door knobs. They came in different shapes, sizes, and designs, and also in different colors. They were all labeled as door furniture. She was about to pick one that looked like something from a sunken pirate ship, but I intervened when I lied that I saw something I liked and convinced her it would look good with the apartment. This trick has always saved me every time she had the urge to decorate and buy new furniture that would take up all my space.
We get asked a lot about the wood and construction that is used in hotel furniture and how to tell low quality furniture from high quality furniture. In a lot of cases, you get what you pay for but with furniture prices going lower across the board from lower overseas labor rates, sometimes good items are not that much more expensive than lower quality furniture. Here I am going to tell you about low quality furniture and what to check for. We all know of the running joke about some manufacturers and their "easy" at home assembly with the hundreds of screws, boards and dowels and mostly undecipherable directions. These types of items, called RTA or ready to assemble are not built with quality in mind, most of the time, they are used because they are compact and if you are shipping the items in a shipping container you can get a lot of boxes stacked on top of each other. While these items may be suitable for home use, for long term hotel use they typically cannot stand the wear and tear of high volume usage. Over time, a lot of these designs sag, twist and contort and need to be replaced. So your first question to ask is, is the hotel furniture already assembled?
