December 22, 2016
If you need new furniture for your house you do not necessarily need to go to the store to buy it. There are lots of sales and even auctions where you can also find some good stuff even at lower rates! Who told you that you need brand-new furniture? Is it your wish your it is what society tell you to do? Are there advantages of pre-used furniture over the new one? There are quite a few of them. Let’s take a closer look at them.
- The most obvious difference is price of course. Everything that can be obtained ob sales including furniture, is cheaper than in stores. That’s why if you are on a tight budget plan, you need to think twice whether you can save money here or not. Also, if you decide to buy a few things, an owner will eagerly give you a discount. This idea is very helpful for newly-weds who just start to live on their own and try to save every penny. Moreover, young people are usually not that picky about where this or that thing came from and are not highly demandable about quality.
- If you are not yet lucky to have a house or an apartment of your own and temporarily rent one, it is quite reasonable not to buy a brand new furniture. One reason is because it eventually will have to be moved out to your permanent lodging and can be scratched or even broken by accident when moving. Another reason is that you would buy a piece of furniture that fits the rented room’s interior and it may not fit into your new place’s interior while old furniture you can simply leave there or make some bargain with a landlord.
- When there are pets or little children in the house everything needs to be hidden. Your own home may turn into a disaster every second. If you are not able to watch your little ones 24 hours a day and 7 days a week and you don’t have a nanny or relatives who can do it for you, then your walls, furniture and personal things are in danger to be spoiled. Both animals and children can scratch, pee, or pour something on your favorite sofa or chair. Children can also paint furniture if they get a hold of markers and paints. And who knows what other mischief can happen? That’s why it is not wise to buy brand new things when you have babies around, it is better to wait until they grow up. And if you have animals, try to keep them in different rooms.
- Of course you will not really feel at home if the furniture is bad. But it is quite possible to find good stuff on sale if you are lucky and patient enough. Just do not give up and bare in mind a picture of your future perfect home!
So next time you plan on buying the brand-new furniture, consider all of the advantages of pre-used one!
