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?
Storage rooms in apartment buildings. If youre moving into a partly- or fully-furnished apartment, check whether or not they have options for storing your furniture within the building. As with a storage unit, always check the condition of the storage facilities before signing up to anything. If an apartment has storage facilities theyre likely to be in the basement or in other dark and possible damp places that are not well maintained. This option may cost less than a storage unit, but the security or pest control may be lacking. Space always comes at a premium, and any option you choose has its own set of pros and cons. Ultimately only you can judge the best option for your belongings.
Currently there are offices and organizations that are hard at work in an effort to try and restore the art deco experience for the world. They are trying to restore homes and offices as well as state buildings so as to preserve this time in the history of our country. In there efforts they have discovered many items and things to use to restore and bring to life that time in history. For many it is important to keep the art deco interior design movement alive and well. It has lived on in one way or another in so many of us and for so long that we do not want to forget this time of the 20s and 30s when so much was happening with small apartment furniture.
The final part is to visually inspect the piece and think about the following things, after I have assembled it, can I move it again or do I think it will fall apart? Are the backs and bottoms of the piece fully finished or can I see the particle board? Does the hotel furniture look square, or are the doors or joints crooked? Can I take this apart again if I want to move it or will that destroy the entire piece? Finally if you put a television on it, will it cause the hotel furniture to fly apart at the sides? The overall theme here is that you want to purchase solid, well made hotel furniture for your property. Keeping in mind a few questions before you purchase will definitely save you money over time but probably cost you a little more up front.
Youve probably heard a lot about the benefits of custom furniture, but what are the steps you need to take before you purchase a unique piece of furniture? This article looks at some things you should consider. Does the manufacturer have a track record The first place to start when picking a piece of custom made furniture is to find a manufacturer. Since custom furniture is completely bespoke, you need to choose a manufacturer with a track record of creating great pieces of furniture. Questions to ask the manufacturer include how long they have been established, do they have previous works to show you and who else have they worked with. The best manufacturers will pass all these questions with good answers. If possible, try to ask a previous client to see the piece of furniture they had made. Closely examine the condition of this to make sure it can stand the test of time and wont fall apart.
When you move into a new place, one of your first major tasks is often going out to purchase all of the additional apartment furniture you need. Shopping can be an exhausting process if you do not prepare in advance and keep some basic principles in mind throughout the process.1. Know Your Essentials Most apartments cant fit all of the furniture you might want, so before you head out shopping, make a list of the essential items that you cant live without. Each persons choices of essential apartment furnishings might be a little different because it depends on what you value. For example, some people need a big couch and entertainment center in the main living area, whereas others would rather fill the space with a big dining table and a couple of comfy armchairs for reading.
