Some people do need help and helpful advice when assembling furniture. There are a lot of methods, but the general tips are all the same. Use these 5 beginner tips before starting your furniture assembly project to help get the job done right, with little hassle. Before you do, remember one thing – making a mess is not a problem at all. Every mess can be solved with a proper cleaning company, and the upholstery cleaning services will take care of any mess done on the furniture itself. So work hard and work forward, don’t fear consequences. And so we go:
1. Have the Right Tools
Often times, when you have a flat pack assembly project, there will be cheap tools included, such as an Allen key. These little tools require great force and can be a pain to handle. Instead, invest in an inexpensive electric screwdriver with interchangeable bits. This will make it easier to handle the task without being too overpowering.
2. Lay Everything Out
Before beginning to assemble everything, it would be a good idea to read through the instructions carefully and then to separate all of pieces. Lay them out in front of you and make sure you have all the necessary parts and pieces. This will also give you time to visualize how to piece everything together.
3. Set up your Space
Make sure the floor is clear and that you have room to shuffle around. You may need to set certain pieces aside, so you do not want other furniture or objects getting in the way. More space will invariably save you the need of making a bigger mess while trying not to do just that – it’s a Murphy Law, after all. So make the appropriate space and let the upholstery cleaners do the work later.
4. Do Your Research
There are a few important things you should find out before taking on your furniture assembly. First, check in with their return policy. You may not like the end result or may find pieces missing or damaged. It will be important to know what your options are in this situation. Another thing to look into would be if they offer online or phone support. This is ideal if you are unsure of your furniture assembly skills and you get stuck or have questions.
5. Check Out the Floor Model
If you get a chance to visit in store, take a look at the floor model. Feel the material and determine if it is the look you are going for. Search for imperfections, such as chipped veneer, gaps where edges are supposed to meet or other imperfections that may cause problems in the long-term.
With these tips furniture assembly should be pretty easy. Make an effort, handle the assembly, after that get some cleaning company to do the upholstery and carpet cleaning so that you can rest in the meantime. You did your part, now enjoy the results.
