Self-assembled furniture has become very popular over the last decade, providing consumers with quality furniture options and big savings on labor costs. However, it also means that buying the furniture is the easy part! Before you get started, follow these rules to ensure a smooth and productive assembly process:
- Buy from brands you’ve heard of
IKEA is the biggest name in self-assembled furniture, but there are many others out there. These companies’ products can vary widely in quality, so sticking with names you know is a good idea.
- Research how difficult the furniture is to assemble
Self-assembled furniture instructions are not always clear and easy to follow. Save yourself a lot of hassle by looking up online reviews and testimonials about the piece you plan to buy.
- Make sure all the pieces are there before you begin
Nothing is more frustrating than getting deep into an assembly project only to find that a piece is missing. Organize and count the pieces before you begin to verify that you have everything you need.
- Make sure you have the right tools
Most self-assembly furniture comes with simple tools to complete the project, but often these tools make the job more difficult and physically demanding. A handheld screwdriver with an easy-to-grasp handle or certain power tools can make the job faster and more enjoyable.
However, not all assembly projects are simple do-it-yourself jobs. Our professional carpentry service professionals can come directly to your home and put together that new entertainment center, children's playset, deck furniture, and more so that your family can enjoy it - and you won't even have to lift a finger.
