The Secret of Furniture “Sales”

retail sales

Almost everyone has that one furniture store in their town that always seems to be going out of business. Why do they do this? Just so they get to have a going-out-of-business sale. Used furniture stores, second-hand furniture stores, and hotel surplus stores all love to have big and commercialized sales.

But is this really the way to buy furniture? Is this the cheapest way?

Of course not.

x-price

Many businesses markup their prices just so they can say they’ve marked them down for a sale. Frankly, the team at AMC Furniture Solutions is tired of watching stores trick their customers with their staged sales that actually offer no benefit.

Four Areas Where You Can Improve Your Kitchen

The kitchen is said to be the soul of the house. It’s where people congregate and prepare their meals to eat together. It’s sometimes the most used space in a house, so it’s important to focus some time to thinking about how you want to design this important space.

In this article, we’re going to be going through four areas to help your existing kitchen and even help you put together a future one.

1) Storage

Having enough storage is crucial. By being able to put almost everything in a cabinet or some type of storage in the kitchen, then your kitchen will seem much bigger, and look much nicer simply by being clean.

Some examples of storage for kitchens would be kitchen shelving, dish racks, spice jars and racks, food pantries and wine racks. Not everyone (well, barely anyone) can afford new cabinets, or cabinets to supplement their existing ones. By using a less expensive storage system you’ll be able to save money and also save space in your kitchen, which is something a lot of kitchens could really use.

2) Lighting
Lighting is one of the most important aspects to a kitchen. Essentially, the more lighting the better.

Natural lighting is the ultimate lighting, so it’s best to leave your curtains open and take advantage of the sun.

It’s also good to have various other sources of light to improve your kitchen as well. The worst thing to do is have your kitchen be too dark.

Also, having the ability to dim your lights helps immensely for adjusting to any particular mood.

3) Know What to Buy Used and New
There are good times to buy something and to buy something used.

For example, it would be wise to get furniture from used furniture stores or furniture hotel outlets. It takes a Saturday to do a lot of furniture repairs, plus getting secondhand furniture saves you so much money. Getting some used kitchen stools and investing the extra money into other areas of the kitchen would be wise.

One of those areas that you should spend a little bit more on is the appliances. Appliances don’t age very well, plus they get outdated easily. Buying an older appliance means you get outdated software and energy conservation. On a lot of refrigerators, dishwashers, etc. you’ll save on your utility bill by buying a newer version.

4) Hide the Trash

We’ll end on a simple one. Simply place your trash can under your sink. Or if you want to get a little fancy buy a bin for your trashcan.

It will make your kitchen smell less and look better by having your trash out of sight.

Hopefully, these tips will help you spruce up your kitchen and make it more inviting to have guests over.

3 things to Avoid when Buying Pre-Owned Furniture

Buying pre-owned furniture is a great thing, but there are a few common pitfalls to avoid when buying it.

1) Impulse Buys

Buying a new piece of furniture can be fun, but be sure you’ve done your research to make sure you really need it. It’s best to spend at least a few days thinking it over. If there is an extremely good deal, but you still aren’t sure, then it’s still best to wait it out. There will always be more good deals. Upscale furniture resale places can be enticing, but learning to delay gratification will always pay off in the long run.

2) Choosing Price over Value

One big reason people choose used furniture is because it’s vastly cheaper than new. This is a good thing, but choosing too cheap a piece of furniture could end up costing you more money.
If the chair you buy breaks only after a couple months, then it probably was not a wise investment. Be sure to always check the quality of the piece before buying.

3) Ignoring Comfort

Just because the piece looks amazing or is trendy does not mean it’s the perfect buy. The piece has to be easy to use and comfortable. Also consider how much this piece of furniture is going to be seen by clients and others. Depending on where the furniture is, then it may not matter if it looks trendy.

Avoiding these three common pitfalls of buying pre-owned furniture will surely leave you with something you’re proud of and will end up using for years to come.
