I’m finally in Hong Kong! The climate will not be as hot because i expect so that it is. It’s been raining over the past week. Coming here from London, I’d say rain in Hong Kong is a lot more annoying, due to the fact:
The water doesn’t feel clean… With the high rise around the streets, the liquid went through numerous 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 me a spot to deal with my relative, that has just recently moved in a new place. So I’ve been Furniture shop in Hong Kong shopping in the past week for my room! Below are the main places for furniture shopping, and I need to have been to each one at least 2 times. It happens to be pretty perseverance buying new furniture. The size’s got to be right, and the colors’ got to match.
This Swedish store needs no introduction. The HK Ikea can be a complete replica of Ikeas abroad, obtainable in Causeway Bay, Kowloon Bay, and Shatin. But sadly there is absolutely no online delivery, and you have to cover HKD70 to acquire any tiny thing delivered.
Ikea is the most popular furniture store. It’s chic yet affordable. I’d want to have everything from Ikea, and that i adore the complete DIY system offered at Ikea. I ended up only getting the bathroom water basin from their store, and getting everything cheaper from local stores. It doesn’t often appear sensible to pay much on Dining table Hong Kong when I don’t recognize how long I’ll last with this city.
Pricerite is actually a HK chain that sells random household things which range from beds to coackroach killers (?), with a fairly low cost, as the name suggests. My relative managed to have a queen-size bed cheaper than HK$2000. Though I must admit the look are nowhere as chic as Ikea’s. It’s available in a lot of places in HK, but is way smaller compared to Ikea. In addition, it delivers totally free. 🙂
DSC is an additional HK chain that’s perhaps slightly less expensive than Pricerite. I was able to get a compact bed plus a 3ft closet for under HKD4000. 🙂 But it’s bigger than Pricerite, hence for sale in less place.
Jusco is actually a Japanese department store that’s offered in only in five places. Usually furniture are offered on the top floor, with a few expensive pieces blended with more fairly priced items. My relative found an extremely pricey dining table here for around HK$3000 plus a rather cheap 4-ft shelf for HK$3000.
5. Your community private (small) furniture shop
Last of all, you will find these local furniture shops that you just see in your local neighborhood. Just my neighborhood mall alone has three of them, and so they often keep the most hideous AND overpriced furniture that I’ve experienced. In no way is this a representation of neighborhood furniture stores. I’m sure there are many really cozy stores that we missed in some corner from the city. Honestly, I’ve seen lots of furniture stores in random place, but can’t really be dexipky26 to have a look. I feel rather bombarded because of the choices already and just want to settle in ASAP. I’ve been told that Wanchai has a whole street focused on Lounge chairs hk. Maybe I’ll go 1 day once i own my very own place and bring along a nearby friend that is good at cutting prices.
I did so wound up going to Wanchai in the end. There was a whole street Lockhart Road dedicated to selling bathroom-ware (toilets, basins, bathroom shelves, bath tubs) and also other small things (doors, door locks, door handles, etc). The stores are typically family-owned, with goods both in the cheaper and better end, depending on if the good is branded or otherwise. It’s a good location to go if you’re p
lanning to renovate your property a great deal, but not if you’re trying to find readily made furniture.
