They say the best things in life are free. But that isn’t exactly the case all of the time, is it? When you compare a Victoria Secrets bra to Primark one, you notice the difference. Not just in the price but the quality (admit it!) And that goes with a lot of things in life. Clothes, food, hotels… and furniture. And it is the latter that I will be discussing in today’s post. So, why is quality furniture important for your home? Can’t we just buy everything from Ikea and be happy? Some of us can. But there are reasons to spend a little bit more money for that extra bit of quality furniture.
THE DEFINITION OF QUALITY
What do you think of when I say quality?
You probably think of the following:
And when you pay a lot of money for something, you expect the item to be all of the above. You also want the sale of the item to be easy, quick and be managed by someone with incredible customer service skills. We all want something for our money which doesn’t just end with us walking away with less cash in our bank.
WHY PAY FOR QUALITY FURNITURE?
Buying furniture for your home should be personal. Generic designs that anyone can buy doesn’t hold any homely value to it. Looking outside of the box will assist in your search for incredible designs that you won’t just find in Homebase.
For example, try looking at online only companies. Many online designers have a much personal service than the larger stores. If you don’t like the item when it is delivered, you can always send it back (depending on the return policy).
But when you purchase simple but unique designs, you should also consider the sturdiness and durability of the item. Look at the materials of the item. For example, if you’re looking for comfortable wooden chairs you don’t want a DIY chipboard job from Argos. You want strong, real and quality furniture in your beautiful home such as these chairs from Viaduct. They are designed to fit the curvature of your back making it comfortable.
I’m not saying that Argos, Ikea and Homebase are bad places to buy from. However, it cannot be denied that they do not have as much quality as more expensive brands.
If quality is what you want, go for it! Save that extra bit of cash because four sofas in, you probably could’ve afforded one that lasted all that time.
