Tip 1: What to look for when choosing furniture
Furniture surrounds a person everywhere, without itno room can be imagined. Therefore it is logical that buying furniture must be carefully and carefully. First of all, it is worth checking the convenience of the products, the quality of the material from which it is made, its reliability and aesthetics.
A special place among all the furniture is the hullfurniture. This type includes all products made from rigid materials. That is, it: tables, dressing-tables, cabinets, cabinets, etc. In other words, this is furniture made without soft elements.
Usually producers do not hide informationconcerning materials from which furniture is made, calmly demonstrate examples, answer any questions asked by the buyer. But there are not too conscientious sellers who can give out cheap and substandard products for expensive. Therefore, when choosing furniture, you need to know what points to pay attention to, so as not to buy inadvertently spoiled goods.
So, here are a few factors on the basis of which you can determine the quality of the product.
First of all, it is worth paying attention tomaterial from which furniture is made. As a rule, the basis of any modern furniture production is chipboard (chipboard). The chipboard itself is pasted with a film.
You should carefully and carefully consider the surface of the furniture. If it is veneered, then very much will depend on the veneer and on the varnish with which it is coated.
The main feature of high-quality furniture isplate thickness. For example, for a cabinet it must be at least 18 mm. It is worth knowing that furniture made of 16 mm laminated chipboard (that is, with a paper coating) is almost always worse than furniture made from 18 mm melamine plate. Although visually the first option may look better than the second.
Always look at furniture certificatesfor compliance with environmental standards. In addition, there is information about the true manufacturer of products. And since now often forge famous brands, it is worthwhile to be on the alert.
All external ends of furniture are mandatoryshould have 2 mm PVC (polyvinylchloride) edges. As an exception, only furniture from solid wood and veneered products. Also, you should pay attention to how well the PVC edge is glued.
Some manufacturers use U-shapedplastic edge. She wears on the chipboard. Such an edge is considered more qualitative, but it looks less aesthetic. Therefore, the buyer should determine what is more important for him: beauty or durability. In good quality furniture, all fasteners must necessarily be hidden. Especially in the housing, in which even before the start of production, everything is thought through to trifles.
When choosing furniture, you should also pay attention toto ensure that the curved elements are not chipped. If there are chips, then the products are of poor quality and, therefore, will not last long. Equally important is the quality of the hardware. If it is cheap, then when you move furniture is likely that the product will crumble to pieces. And it is not a fact that afterwards it will be possible to assemble everything again.
Therefore, when buying should be carefully checked,how the doors open and close, from which the corners are made, on which the shelves lie, how easily and silently the rest of the elements are regulated. Usually quality fittings have a manufacturer's stigma.
Tip 2: How to choose cabinet furniture
When choosing the furniture it is important to chooseperfectly fitting into the interior of the furniture composition. It is also necessary that the furniture was made of quality materials, competently assembled and installed. When all these conditions are met, you can enjoy the comfort that furniture will give you for a long time.
Visit several furniture stores of yourcities. Take a closer look at the assortment of cabinet furniture offered in them. Compare the prices to both the models you like and the furniture as a whole. The difference in price for the same model in different stores can be impressive.
Communicate with sellers. Find out all the details you are interested in. Take an interest in the terms and conditions of the guarantee. Find out what conditions are the delivery and assembly of furniture. Free shipping is a definite plus, but with the assembly is not so simple. The so-called "free assembly" is not at all, its value is already included in the price of furniture. Ideal: you pay for furniture in the store, and for the assembly, pay the master / master after completing the work.
Before going to the store, find out the dimensionsThe room in which you are going to buy case furniture. All the information you need is in the technical plan of the apartment. If there is no plan at hand, measure the room / kitchen / corridor yourself. This will help to avoid situations where after the assembly it turns out that the furniture can not be placed, as you planned. Or it turns out that the closet, bed or hallway simply does not fit in the room / corridor because of its dimensions. Remember that in a store, with its area and high ceilings, any object seems smaller than its actual size.
Choose furniture manufacturers that do nottry to reduce the price of their products through the use of cheap accessories. Handles, legs, hinges, guides and other components of cabinet furniture should be of high quality. Expensive hardware not only looks better than its cheap counterparts, but also extends the service life of cabinet furniture.
Pay attention to the quality of the processing of the endsall the details. Qualitatively produced furniture has no gaps in the edges of the edge, the shelf / wall / door looks monolithic. It's all about the equipment that one or another manufacturer uses. Saving on the production process, entails a decrease in the quality of the products. This also applies to materials used in the manufacture of furniture.
