Choosing the Right Furniture
The old way of making furniture has paved way to the ‘new do it yourself’ where a manufacturer sells the consumer assembled parts and offers a guide on how to assemble the product. In a progressive human society, the do it yourself assembly is a welcome concept . It is most likely that those engaging in the do it yourself assembly are undertaking the task for the first time. One may be wise to read through the manual and make consultations if needed before undertaking the do it yourself job. As much as do it yourself (DIY) is a custom project , it doesn’t mean that it’s a trial and error kind of thing ,one needs to read and understand manuals completely to avoid errors that may be costly.
There are some general don’ts that you should avoid at all costs which the article will look at. Do not rush the do it yourself project as missing critical projects could end up making furniture that is unsafe and unstable. To be comfortable with the furniture that one ends up with after the assembly, ensure you use the right tools for the job ,use screw drivers where screws need to be tightened and nuts spanners where nuts need fixing.
Avoid having space issues when performing the assembly. Desist from skimming instructions but rather strive to have a comprehensive mastery of the instructions to avoid having challenges for the mere reason of lacking the understanding. Having understood the instructions that the manufacturer has provided, it’s time to start working on your furniture, but before you start do not fail to ensure that all the needed parts to complete the are available to avoid stalling the process in the middle because of lacking a part.
You may end up creating threats in your house if you improvise for some parts of the furniture that might either be missing or having a hard time understanding how it’s meant to work, avoid improvising as you could make the furniture unfit for use. Boxed furniture are easily counterfeited because unlike an already assembled furniture piece where you can verify trademarks and inspect the materials used to make the product, boxed products cannot be easily inspected. Avoid working alone where you know you could use the help of other people in performing the assembly .
It would be a mistake to encounter a problem an brush it off as product malfunction, do not be quick to make such assumptions but rather contact the product maker and voice your problem . Expect a few hassles here and there in the assembly process and try to solve them the proper way.
