Reasons for Investing in High-Quality Furniture
View High-Quality Furniture as a Long-Term Investment in Your Comfort, Lifestyle
There should be no reason to apologize if you like to treat yourself to something special, so to speak, on an occasional or even a regular basis; you work hard for your money, and with the tax collectors and service providers waiting gleefully for a significant portion of your pay each month, you should not be faulted if you chose to pamper yourself and your family with some of your remaining balance/savings.
The furniture in your home is used each and every day, and associated with that routine use are expectations of comfort and reliable performance. However, countless stories abound of people who bought what they believed to be high-quality furniture, only to learn that their hard-earned money had been spent in error; as a result, they had to either buy furniture again much sooner than planned or live with the disappointment of their initial purchase.
To avoid such potential disenchantment and thereby help you make informed decisions (and investments) with your furniture choices, our furniture specialists from Carrocel, one of the leading high-end furniture stores in Toronto, present the following tips to aid in the selection of high-quality furniture that can literally last a lifetime:
- Investigate the Construction
- Inquire about the methods of construction used in the manufacture of the furniture
- Ask about the process (hand-crafted or mass produced), how the corners are made, how the frame is joined, how the pillows are filled, the number of springs, and more
- Closely Examine the Materials
- Is a table made from natural wood or some type of wood by-product or facsimile?
- Is a sofa/chair upholstered in actual leather or just give the appearance of leather?
- Is the fabric tough and hard-wearing or is it one that tends to wear-and-tear easily?
- Consider the Adaptability
- Does the piece have the ability to serve more than one purpose now or in the future?
- In the case of damage (always a possibility), can it be repaired or refinished as new?
- Be Wary of Low Pricing and Discounts
- If a published price seems too good to be true, it is likely reflective of inferior quality
- If a discounted price seems too good to be true, there is likely an underlying problem
Whether you are shopping for a solitary piece, a suite, or an entire complement of furniture for a new home, investing in high-quality furniture will deliver long-term return in relation to your comfort and lifestyle, not to mention avoiding the headaches of sub-standard products.
