Choose Quality Furniture vs. Cheap Junk

Furniture is an investment - IT'S ART YOU LIVE WITH.

When shopping for home furniture, whether it is for your bedroom, living room or the dining room, choose high quality solid hardwood furniture. Many think that quality furniture such as Amish Solid Hardwood Furniture is too expensive for them. While there may be some truth to that, you are not looking at the bigger picture. If you resort to cheap, mass-produced pieces to furnish your home, thinking you are spending your money wisely, you need to think again.

Furniture is a long-term investment, not something you shop for every couple of years – which can be the case with low-quality furniture. Think longevity when shopping for your furniture.

As mentioned above, furniture is supposed to be a long-term purchase. Your dining room furniture or bedroom suite should outlast you!  When you put your money into high-quality hardwood furniture you are making a cost-efficient decision and saving yourself from replacement cost and thus more money down the road.  By doing a simple test for durability, like running your fingernails on a wooden piece to check for potential scratching, you can tell whether it is worth spending your money on it or not.

High Quality should also be comfortable. High-quality furniture manufacturers such as the Amish or North American made Witmer Furniture know that while style and creativity are especially important, quality and comfort is not something that should be compromised. There is no point in buying a chair that is not comfortable to sit on. After all, furniture is meant to be functional and usable.  Comfortable furniture tends to be more expensive for a reason, so do yourself a favor and spend a little extra to buy quality solid wood furniture pieces that will not make you feel like you would rather eat while standing!

We also carry Solid Pine Furniture made locally in Manitoba.

Quality hardwood furniture maintenance. Cheap furniture is often made from cheap materials that do not endure. Once it breaks or stains, you will probably have to replace it. Alternatively, when you buy high-quality solid hardwood furniture, you will notice they are made from natural materials that can be treated, repaired, and easily taken care of to last for generations.

There is a common misconception that high-quality furniture means more expensive prices, however, this is not entirely true; it depends on the craftsmanship and materials used. So be careful when furniture shopping, and do not fall for clever marketing. Instead, do your due diligence and learn more about the quality and materials before making a purchase.
