I’m finally in Hong Kong! The elements will not be as hot while 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 much more annoying, mainly because:
The water doesn’t feel clean… With all the high rise around the streets, this type of water 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 us a place to accept my relative, that has recently moved into a new place. So I’ve been Furniture Hong Kong shopping for the past week for my room! Below are among the main places for furniture shopping, and that i must have gone to every one of them twice. It ends up being pretty hard work shopping for new furniture. The size’s got to be right, and also the colors’ got to match.
This Swedish store needs no introduction. The HK Ikea can be a complete replica of Ikeas abroad, available 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 my personal favorite furniture store. It’s chic yet affordable. I’d want to only have from Ikea, and that i adore the full DIY system offered at Ikea. I ended up being only obtaining the bathroom water basin from them, and getting everything cheaper from local stores. It doesn’t appear to make sense to enjoy much on Dining table Hong Kong when I don’t know how long I’ll last in this city.
Pricerite can be a HK chain that sells random household things ranging from beds to coackroach killers (?), at the fairly low price, because 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 for sale in lots of places in HK, but is much smaller than Ikea. In addition, it delivers totally free. 🙂
DSC is an additional HK chain that’s perhaps slightly less expensive than Pricerite. I surely could get a little bed along with a 3ft closet for less than HKD4000. 🙂 But it’s greater than Pricerite, hence obtainable in less place.
Jusco is really a Japanese department store that’s offered in only in five places. Usually furniture can be purchased at the top floor, by incorporating expensive pieces together with more fairly priced items. My relative acquired a very pricey dining room table for around HK$3000 and 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 them, and they appear to keep the most hideous AND overpriced furniture that I’ve ever seen. 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 in the city. Honestly, I’ve seen lots of furniture stores in random place, but can’t be dexipky26 to have a look. I feel rather bombarded with all the current choices already and would like to settle in ASAP. I’ve been told that Wanchai has a whole street focused on Lounge chairs hk. Maybe I’ll go one day as i own my very own place and carry along a nearby friend who is efficient at cutting prices.
I did ended up being likely to Wanchai in the long run. There was a huge street Lockhart Road devoted to 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 on the cheaper and higher end, depending on whether the good is branded or otherwise not. It’s an effective place to go if you’re p
lanning to renovate your house a great deal, yet not if you’re seeking readily made furniture.
