Many people are confused when they go furniture shopping, because they don’t know whether they are paying for high-end furniture or if they are getting poor quality furniture at exorbitant prices. If you don’t have that much experience in buying furniture, you will obviously face a bit of difficulty. However, it’s not impossible, and there are some pretty clear signs that indicate a well-crafted, well-designed furniture piece. So, the next time that you go shopping for furniture, here’s what you need to look out for.
Quality of Wood
There are several furniture stores in Thailand that only deal in high-end furniture pieces. However, the best way to identify whether you are dealing with a high end piece or not is to check the quality of wood. The quality of wood will tell you a lot about the kind of furniture piece you are buying. Expensive wood such as maple, oak, and teak are commonly used for high-end furniture pieces. That’s because these types of wood are able to sustain quite a lot of wear and tear, and they are also very intricately designed.
Look at the point where two pieces of furniture join with each other. Look at the ornate crafting and the design, and then see if it looks well done or not. You have to make sure that the craftsmanship is taken seriously because that’s what separates high-quality furniture from the low-quality furniture. If you are willing to pay top dollar for different furniture pieces, the least you deserve is good quality craftsmanship.
The varnish and the polish applied on the furniture also speaks volumes. The finishing on each piece should be as detailed as possible. The brush strokes are done in a uniform fashion to ensure that the color remains as smooth as possible all around the furniture piece. On top of that, the quality of polish is also very high, so you don’t need to worry about it going bad after a few months. This is a clear sign of high end furniture in Thailand.
Buy From the Right Place
On top of that, you need to make sure that you buy the furniture from the right place. Most people look for high-end furniture in weekend markets and other small locations. Obviously, you won’t be able to find anything in such locations. Make sure you go to a reputable furniture store to buy what you need.
