Saving time with faster dispatches, and giving you spare money to spend as you please, there’s a lot of benefits to making your next big project include refurbished furniture, we discuss a selection of reasons why second-hand furniture is something you should consider below.
1. A fraction of the price for what you want
When buying from a top retailer, the prices for furniture can be much higher for a number of reasons. If it’s a brand new item, for instance, the price will be much higher than an older refurbished option. Then, using the extra money saved from pricing, you can easily look for fantastic accessories for the rest of the space and get the exact style you’re looking for, with your own personal touch.
2. Environmentally friendly
Alongside the growing demands for furniture, purchasing new furniture whenever redecorating will result in unused furnishings just being thrown away and wasted. Wooden components in furniture can be disposed of in landfills, and any metallic components need to be correctly disassembled and disposed of, alongside any non degradable components. This results in much more harm to the environment, and on a larger scale due to the size of some furniture and the number of components used, buying used furniture items helps reduce this effect on the environment by giving furnishings a new lease of life after their initial use.
3. Same high quality furnishings
Contrary to popular belief, refurbished furniture can be just as great as a brand new item. Most furniture items can last for decades, and depending on its usage, it can look like brand new with simply a little bit of TLC, yet costs you much less to purchase than buying brand new. You may even find items which are almost brand new, as it’s common for buyers to sometimes return an item due to a small defect, and companies can simply revolve and fix this but are unable list this item as brand new.
4. Much faster delivery
When ordering brand new furniture from a store, there can sometimes be a long waiting period where a request is made to a manufacturer, the product is sent to a store, and is delivered to you. When purchasing refurbished furniture it can often be the case that you can get the product on the same day or much faster delivery directly from the distributor.
5. Fantastic variety
It goes without saying that when you’re redecorating a room, you’ve probably planned to have a specific style in mind and want to keep to it. With refurbished furniture, you never have to stray away from the style you want, as there’s almost always going to be a used product (at a great price!) that matches your style.
