I’m finally in Hong Kong! The climate is not really as hot when 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, primarily because:
The liquid doesn’t feel clean… With all the high rise around the streets, this type of water went through a lot of things before it reaches the ground… street signs, air conditioners, clothes sticking out for drying, and God knows what else.
Anyway my parents have the ability to find me a destination to live with my relative, having recently moved in to a new place. So I’ve been Furniture Hong Kong shopping for the past week for my room! Below are the main places for furniture shopping, and I should have gone to every one of them at least two times. It ends up being pretty hard work buying new furniture. The size’s got to be right, and also the colors’ reached match.
This Swedish store needs no introduction. The HK Ikea is really a complete replica of Ikeas abroad, available in Causeway Bay, Kowloon Bay, and Shatin. But sadly there is not any online delivery, and you will have to spend HKD70 to acquire any tiny thing delivered.
Ikea is my personal favorite furniture store. It’s chic yet affordable. I’d like to have everything from Ikea, and that i adore the entire DIY system available at Ikea. I wound up only having the bathroom water basin from their store, and receiving everything cheaper from local stores. It doesn’t seem to appear sensible to invest much on Dining table Hong Kong once i don’t understand how long I’ll last in this city.
Pricerite is a HK chain that sells random household things starting from beds to coackroach killers (?), at the fairly low price, since the name suggests. My relative managed to get a queen-size bed cheaper than HK$2000. Though I have to admit the design and style are nowhere as chic as Ikea’s. It’s for sale in a lot of places in HK, but is way smaller compared to Ikea. In addition, it delivers totally free. 🙂
DSC is yet another HK chain that’s perhaps slightly cheaper than Pricerite. I was able to grab a tiny bed and a 3ft closet for under HKD4000. 🙂 But it’s bigger than Pricerite, hence available in less place.
Jusco is a Japanese department shop that’s available in only in five places. Usually furniture can be bought at the top floor, with some expensive pieces blended with more fairly priced items. My relative found a rather pricey dining room table for around HK$3000 as well as a rather cheap 4-ft shelf for HK$3000.
5. Your community private (small) furniture shop
Finally, you can find these local furniture shops which you see within your local neighborhood. Just my neighborhood mall alone has three of these, and so they seem to keep the most hideous AND overpriced furniture that I’ve experienced. By no means is it a representation of neighborhood furniture stores. I’m sure there are many really cozy stores which i missed in many corner from the city. Honestly, I’ve seen plenty of furniture stores in random place, but can’t really be dexipky26 to check 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 committed to bar stool HK. Maybe I’ll go one day after i own my place and convey along a nearby friend that is proficient at cutting prices.
I have done ended up going to Wanchai in the end. There was clearly an entire street Lockhart Road focused on selling bathroom-ware (toilets, basins, bathroom shelves, bath tubs) and other small things (doors, door locks, door handles, etc). The stores are mainly family-owned, with goods both about the cheaper and better end, dependant upon if the good is branded or otherwise. It’s an effective location to go if you’re p
lanning to renovate your house quite a bit, yet not if you’re seeking readily made furniture.
