I’m finally in Hong Kong! The climate is not as hot as I expect that it is. It’s been raining within the last week. Coming here from London, I’d say rain in Hong Kong is a lot more annoying, primarily because:
Water doesn’t feel clean… With all the high rise surrounding the streets, water has gone through countless things before it reaches the ground… street signs, ac units, clothes sticking out for drying, and God knows what else.
Anyway my parents are able to find us a location to deal with my relative, having just recently moved into a new place. So I’ve been Furniture hk shopping for the past week for my room! Below are among the main places for furniture shopping, and I must have gone to each of them at least 2 times. It ends up being pretty hard work buying new furniture. The size’s reached be right, and the colors’ have got to match.
This Swedish store needs no introduction. The HK Ikea can be a complete replica of Ikeas abroad, offered in Causeway Bay, Kowloon Bay, and Shatin. But sadly there is no online delivery, and you will have to pay HKD70 to get any tiny thing delivered.
Ikea is the most popular furniture store. It’s chic yet affordable. I’d like to simply have from Ikea, and I adore the entire DIY system offered at Ikea. I finished up only receiving the bathroom water basin from them, and receiving everything cheaper from local stores. It doesn’t seem to seem sensible to invest much on table Hong Kong when I don’t understand how long I’ll last in this city.
Pricerite is really a HK chain that sells random household things including beds to coackroach killers (?), at the fairly low cost, as being the name suggests. My relative managed to obtain a queen-size bed for under HK$2000. Though I have to admit the design are nowhere as chic as Ikea’s. It’s available in a lot of places in HK, but is much smaller than Ikea. Furthermore, it delivers free of charge. 🙂
DSC is yet another HK chain that’s perhaps slightly less expensive than Pricerite. I was able to pick-up a compact bed as well as a 3ft closet for under HKD4000. 🙂 But it’s greater than Pricerite, hence for sale in less place.
Jusco is really a Japanese department store that’s obtainable in only in five places. Usually furniture can be purchased on the top floor, by incorporating expensive pieces together with more fairly priced items. My relative found a very pricey dining room table for around HK$3000 as well as a rather cheap 4-ft shelf for HK$3000.
5. Your neighborhood private (small) furniture shop
Last but not least, you will find these local furniture shops that you see within your local neighborhood. Just my neighborhood mall alone has three of them, and they also appear to store the most hideous AND overpriced furniture that I’ve ever seen. In no way is that this a representation of neighborhood furniture stores. I’m sure there are some really cozy stores which i missed in a few corner from the city. Honestly, I’ve seen plenty of furniture stores in random place, but can’t be dexipky26 to try them out. I feel rather bombarded because of the choices already and simply want to settle in ASAP. I’ve been told that Wanchai has a whole street focused on Dining Chairs Hong Kong. Maybe I’ll go a day as i own my own, personal place and carry along the local friend who may be good at cutting prices.
I did ended up being likely to Wanchai in the long run. There seemed to be a complete street Lockhart Road focused on selling bathroom-ware (toilets, basins, bathroom shelves, bath tubs) along with other small things (doors, door locks, door handles, etc). The stores are typically 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 property considerably, although not if you’re searching for readily made furniture.
