How to Choose a Furniture Store

There seems to be a furniture store on just about every street corner. But when you are looking for quality furniture, how do you go about choosing the furniture store that is right for you?

Why is it important to choose the right furniture store?

Buying furniture is not like buying clothes. Furniture is something you need to live with for at least 5 to 10 years, if not longer. So it is important to make sure that you buy the right furniture. And here the furniture store you choose plays a big role.

When looking for furniture, you need to look at a furniture store that has a wide enough range so you will be able to find what you want. If not, ask if they supply custom made lounges and other furniture. You also have to look at things like after sales service, warranties, delivery, etc. In fact, there is a lot more to look at when choosing a furniture store than just how beautiful a specific lounge is!

Look for a furniture store with a good reputation

When choosing a furniture store, it is important that you listen to what others have to say. If three of your friends tell you that they had to have their lounges reupholstered within two years of buying from the same store, you can know that is not the furniture store for you. You need to look further.
However, when you look at reviews or talk to friends and all tell you about the quality furniture, wide range and good after sales service they received from a specific furniture store, that may be the one to go with.

How big is their range of furniture?

Unless you are looking at buying from a boutique furniture store that stocks a specific line of furniture you are interested in, you need to find a store with a range wide enough to give you several choices. The more choices you have, the easier you will find exactly what you are looking for.

Look for a furniture store that offers to make you a custom made lounge

Most people have a pretty good idea of exactly what it is they want when looking for a lounge or other piece of furniture. Finding that piece of furniture can be an impossible task.
Custom made furniture are all the buzz. How much easier is it to sit with a designer and sketch out exactly what it is you want in a lounge and other piece of furniture? When you go for custom made lounges, you will find that you get exactly what you want at a fraction of what you thought it would cost.
However, when choosing a furniture store that can supply you with custom made furniture, make sure that they manufacture high quality furniture with solid wood bases and that they have a wide range of fabrics you can choose from for covering.

Do they provide warranties and after sales service?

It doesn’t matter how great a furniture store’s reputation is, you will want the assurance of a warranty. If a furniture store can’t provide you with at least a 10 year warranty on a piece of furniture, you need to steer clear from them. It happens too often that people buy inferior quality furniture and then have to find someone to refurbish it within a couple of years. A good furniture store will give you a lengthy warranty, even when they know you will not need it.

A good furniture store will offer a prompt delivery service

When buying furniture, you don’t want the hassle of arranging your own furniture delivery. It is important to find a furniture store that will either deliver the furniture themselves or will arrange for your furniture to be delivered by a trusted delivery service.
Since so many people have started ordering furniture online, it is important that they arrange delivery by a trusted furniture delivery service if you order from a furniture store that is on the other side of the country.

Why We Use Solid Timber When Building Your Custom Made Lounge

One of the questions we get asked on a regular basis, is why we use a solid timber frame instead of the cheaper MDF option when building our custom made lounges. The answer is easy: we are proud of the quality of our Australian made furniture.

Using solid Australian grown timber when constructing the frame of your lounge, ensures that your lounge will have a frame that won’t break when the children jump on it or your 500 pound uncle comes for a visit. It gives us the opportunity to offer you a 10 year guarantee on your custom made lounge and you can rest assured that it will last at least that long and longer.

A lot of furniture nowadays are built with MDF. It is a cheaper option as far as material goes and allows furniture companies to quickly mass produce furniture. However, as a customer of Leisure Lounges, you have come to know our furniture to speak of the highest quality.

Building you a custom made lounge of the highest quality is our priority.

So why do we not use MDF when manufacturing your custom made lounge?

  1. MDF is highly susceptible to damage if it gets wet. Moisture makes it swell and when it then dries out, it can crumble completely. Solid wood is a lot more resistant to water damage.
  2. MDF contains formaldehyde which can be dangerous and acts as an irritant to eyes and lungs when you come in direct contact with it.
  3. It does not hold screws and nails well, so a lounge built from MDF won’t last very long, as opposed to a solid timber frame that will last you a lifetime.
  4. MDF has very poor tensile strength, so children jumping on your lounge or putting a lot of weight on it can easily damage it. Our solid timber frames have both very good compressive strength as well as tensile strength, ensuring that you only get high quality custom made lounges from us at Leisure Lounges.

Call us today or drop by our showroom to see for yourself the quality of our furniture. We care about our customers. That is why we can make you a promise that you will never find any MDF in a custom made lounge you buy from us at Leisure Lounges.
