I’m finally in Hong Kong! The elements will not be as hot as I expect that it is. It’s been raining in the past week. Coming here from London, I’d say rain in Hong Kong is much more annoying, mainly because:
This type of water doesn’t feel clean… Because of the high rise around the streets, the liquid has gone through so many things before it reaches the ground… street signs, air conditioning units, clothes sticking out for drying, and God knows what else.
Anyway my parents find a way to find me a spot to accept my relative, that has just recently moved into a new place. So I’ve been Furniture shop in Hong Kong shopping over 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 two times. It turns out to be pretty work searching for new furniture. The size’s reached be right, and the colors’ reached match.
This Swedish store needs no introduction. The HK Ikea can be a complete replica of Ikeas abroad, for sale in Causeway Bay, Kowloon Bay, and Shatin. But sadly there is no online delivery, and you will have to pay for HKD70 to acquire any tiny thing delivered.
Ikea is my personal favorite furniture store. It’s chic yet affordable. I’d like to just have anything from Ikea, and so i adore the entire DIY system available at Ikea. I wound up only receiving the bathroom water basin from their website, and having everything cheaper from local stores. It doesn’t seem to appear sensible to spend much on table Hong Kong when I don’t learn how long I’ll last in this city.
Pricerite can be a HK chain that sells random household things which range from beds to coackroach killers (?), in a fairly low cost, as being the name suggests. My relative managed to acquire a queen-size bed for under HK$2000. Though I must admit the style are nowhere as chic as Ikea’s. It’s obtainable in quite a lot of places in HK, but is way small compared to Ikea. It also delivers at no cost. 🙂
DSC can be another HK chain that’s perhaps slightly cheaper than Pricerite. I was able to grab a compact bed and a 3ft closet for less than HKD4000. 🙂 But it’s greater than Pricerite, hence offered in less place.
Jusco can be a Japanese shopping area that’s offered in only in five places. Usually furniture can be purchased on the top floor, with just a few expensive pieces mixed with more fairly priced items. My relative picked up a very pricey dining table here for around HK$3000 as well as a rather cheap 4-ft shelf for HK$3000.
5. Your community private (small) furniture shop
Last of all, there are actually these local furniture shops which you see in your local neighborhood. Just my neighborhood mall alone has three of them, and they also often store the most hideous AND overpriced furniture that I’ve ever seen. In no way could this be a representation of neighborhood furniture stores. I’m sure there are some really cozy stores i missed in a few corner within the city. Honestly, I’ve seen a lot of furniture stores in random place, but can’t be dexipky26 to check them out. I feel rather bombarded because of the choices already and only want to settle in ASAP. I’ve been told that Wanchai includes a whole street focused on Dining Chairs Hong Kong. Maybe I’ll go 1 day once i own my place and carry along a local friend who is efficient at cutting prices.
I did so ended up gonna Wanchai eventually. There was clearly a whole street Lockhart Road dedicated to selling bathroom-ware (toilets, basins, bathroom shelves, bath tubs) and other small things (doors, door locks, door handles, etc). The shops are generally family-owned, with goods both on the cheaper and better end, based on whether or not the good is branded or otherwise. It’s an effective location to go if you’re p
lanning to renovate your home quite a bit, although not if you’re searching for readily made furniture.
