We usually think of furniture stores as the ones you see in malls, or near home, and which sell “useful” stuff such as coffee tables and home entertainment centers. In reality, you can find them at malls and shopping centres, but also in our homes. Here’s a look at what some of Auckland’s top furniture stores are selling.
Some people are content to have just a bedroom, so they don’t need to have everything in their house that they want for the whole family. They may have a piano in their living room, but only a bookcase in their bedroom. If you’ve got a piano in your living room but no place to keep it, ask if there’s a guitar case in the corner of the bedroom or kitchen. Many stores stock large and small luggage.
Many people like to travel to get fresh air and perhaps buy new clothes, accessories and other items for their travels. At home, there are plenty of things to do such as decorating, cooking and playing board games. It’s a shame that some shoppers forget to bring a suitcase or other items with them. That’s why retailers stock these for sale: they are compact enough to fit into a suitcase when they go on a trip.
Perhaps you have bought a new flat screen television but now wish you had one for your bed. It’s not too hard to get one, even in Auckland.
Comfort is an issue for everyone these days, including those who spend a lot of time in their bedroom. Why not give a set of double mattress innerspring. These can be made from foam or leather, so you know they will be comfortable. They can be large enough to sleep two and still be a comfortable size for a single person.
Bedding can make or break a bedroom. Many retailers offer bedding for sale, from expensive luxurious beds, to comfy, practical mattresses. Decorating your bed with some solid coloured bedspreads, while you enjoy your sleep is a good idea.
Furniture retailers want to make you aware of the difference between cheap and good quality. You can save a great deal of money if you buy cheaply made furniture. However, this can mean that if it breaks or wears out, it may not be able to be fixed well enough, leading to major problems for you.
Many people like to collect DVDs, along with some music or DVDs for their children. It can take up a lot of space in your house, and so you want to make sure that it’s easy to find all the things you want. With DVD racks, you can easily store them in a corner where they’re easy to find.
You can use this in your entertainment center so that you can look through your home cinema system without removing things from your bookshelves or shelves. The shelves you’re using to display books may well be too small for your collection. So take your favorite CDs, DVDs and films with you.
Men love to carry small handbags, so these can be great gifts for friends, colleagues or even yourself. This little designer bag will be a great addition to your wardrobe, and the price is right, considering the quality.
It’s a nice touch to have some gift card holders in your home office. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t decorate your desk with them. There are plenty of retailers that sell these or you can find them online.
Now that you know what’s available, it’s time to find one of these items that suits your taste and needs. It’s amazing how many stores there are in New Zealand selling furniture.
