The Advantages Of Buying Knock Down Furniture

We live in a world where convenience is king.

So many of the technological, domestic and general advancements that we have seen in society over the past 20 years or so have been with convenience in mind.

From mobile phones to online streaming services, the world has shifted so that convenience for the end user is now of paramount importance.

This shift has also been notable in the world of furniture. People have always wanted items that look great in their homes. But they also want to be able to get these items into their homes easily and effectively.

This is the beauty of luxury knock down furniture. It’s not only easy to add to a space to bring a whole new element. But it’s also remarkably convenient to get your furniture set up and ready to go.

In our latest blog, we take a look at the reasons behind the rise in popularity of knock down furniture and provide some of the leading knock down items that are available at CIMC for you to take a look at.

The Rise Of Knock Down Furniture

Knockdown furniture comes under a number of different names. Ready-to-assemble furniture, kit furniture, or flat-pack furniture are all terms that are used for this type of convenient furniture.

However, it’s fair to say that knockdown furniture isn’t exactly a modern invention. There are mentions of furniture designed to be assembled by the end-user as long ago as the late 1800s.

But as convenience and ease of use start to become a growing priority for people, it’s easy to see why to knock down furniture has become the phenomenon it has.

Of course, it’s hard to discuss the idea of flat-pack or knock down furniture without mentioning that a four-lettered Scandinavian brand with whom the very notion of knock down furniture has become so intertwined. IKEA’s popularity and its range of knockdown furniture have brought this type of furniture firmly into society’s general consciousness and converted many shoppers to this type of item over alternatives.

While IKEA’s popularity does look set to endure, as a retailer of furniture that just means that you will continue to have a big pool of customers interested in knockdown furniture to sell to.

The Benefits Of Knock Down Furniture For Customers

So why exactly has knockdown furniture become the go-to for many shoppers?

Perhaps the most obvious reason is transportation. Lugging large items of furniture from the store to the living room is not an easy feat. Plenty of people reading this will have a large car with ample storage space, but most of these are still going to struggle to get large furniture items from A to B.

Another very important factor to consider is the logistics of getting items into the part of the home they’re made for. Doorways and hallways can be very difficult to negotiate when it comes to moving large furniture items around. In the best-case scenario, the battle to get a piece of large furniture where you want in your home is successful if a little strenuous. In the worst-case scenario, a complete rethink of where you put your furniture might be needed. That’s obviously not good - especially when you’ve bought a specific item for a specific area.

Add to this the fact that more and more people are living in places like apartments, flats, and student accommodation. Traditional houses just aren’t the norm anymore. There are more and more staircases and lifts to negotiate, and this can prove problematic when it comes to moving furniture around.

This all makes knock down furniture a more appealing option for customers. It’s easy to take from A to B. It’s easy to manoeuvre around the home. And if the furniture is of good quality, it should be easy enough to assemble.

The Benefits Of Knock Down Furniture For Retailers

One of the major benefits of selling knock down furniture as a retailer is the benefits they bring to the customers that are outlined above. If you don’t offer the kind of convenient solutions that customers are seeking, they’re likely to look elsewhere.

Logistically too, knockdown furniture brings a number of benefits for retailers. If you have a delivery service, having knocked down furniture is an added bonus as that ease of movement is all the greater for your delivery teams.

Equally, storing this type of furniture is very easy and convenient. The space saved can allow you to keep more items in your stock and enable more efficient operations on the part of the retailer.
