I’m finally in Hong Kong! The elements will not be as hot while i expect it to be. It’s been raining within the last week. Coming here from London, I’d say rain in Hong Kong is a lot more annoying, for the reason that:
The liquid doesn’t feel clean… Because of the high rise around the streets, this type of water went through so many things before it reaches the ground… street signs, air conditioners, clothes sticking out for drying, and God knows what else.
Anyway my parents are able to find me a location to live with my relative, who has recently moved in to a new place. So I’ve been Furniture hk shopping in the past week for my room! Below are the main places for furniture shopping, and so i should have been to every one of them twice. It ends up being pretty work shopping for new furniture. The size’s got to be right, along with the colors’ have got to match.
This Swedish store needs no introduction. The HK Ikea is really a complete replica of Ikeas abroad, offered in Causeway Bay, Kowloon Bay, and Shatin. But sadly there is no online delivery, and you have to pay for HKD70 to obtain any tiny thing delivered.
Ikea is the best furniture store. It’s chic yet affordable. I’d love to just have from Ikea, and I adore the full DIY system offered by Ikea. I ended up being only getting the bathroom water basin from their store, and obtaining everything cheaper from local stores. It doesn’t often appear sensible to pay much on table Hong Kong as i don’t understand how long I’ll last within this city.
Pricerite is actually a HK chain that sells random household things ranging from beds to coackroach killers (?), in a fairly low price, as the name suggests. My relative managed to acquire a queen-size bed for less than HK$2000. Though I must admit the design are nowhere as chic as Ikea’s. It’s for sale in lots of places in HK, but is way smaller than Ikea. In addition, it delivers totally free. 🙂
DSC is yet another HK chain that’s perhaps slightly less expensive than Pricerite. I could get a tiny bed as well as a 3ft closet for less than HKD4000. 🙂 But it’s greater than Pricerite, hence offered in less place.
Jusco is really a Japanese mall that’s offered in only in five places. Usually furniture can be bought at the top floor, by incorporating expensive pieces blended with more fairly priced items. My relative picked up a rather pricey dining room table here for around HK$3000 along with a rather cheap 4-ft shelf for HK$3000.
5. Your neighborhood private (small) furniture shop
Lastly, you will find these local furniture shops which you see within your local neighborhood. Just my neighborhood mall alone has three of those, and they also manage to store the most hideous AND overpriced furniture that I’ve experienced. In no way could this be a representation of neighborhood furniture stores. I’m sure there are several really cozy stores which i missed in a few corner in the city. Honestly, I’ve seen lots of furniture stores in random place, but can’t be dexipky26 to have a look. I feel rather bombarded with all the current choices already and just want to settle in ASAP. I’ve been told that Wanchai has a whole street devoted to bar stool HK. Maybe I’ll go some day when I own my very own place and provide along a local friend that is good at cutting prices.
I have done finished up planning to Wanchai eventually. There was clearly a whole street Lockhart Road committed to selling bathroom-ware (toilets, basins, bathroom shelves, bath tubs) and also other small things (doors, door locks, door handles, etc). The shops are mainly family-owned, with goods both in the cheaper and better end, according to regardless of if the good is branded or perhaps not. It’s a good destination to go if you’re p
lanning to renovate your house considerably, although not if you’re seeking readily made furniture.
