I’m finally in Hong Kong! The climate will not be as hot as I expect so 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:
Water doesn’t feel clean… With the high rise around the streets, this type of water has gone through a lot of things before it reaches the ground… street signs, ac units, clothes sticking out for drying, and God knows what else.
Anyway my parents have the ability to find us a destination to tolerate my relative, that has recently moved in to a new place. So I’ve been Furniture shop in Hong Kong shopping for the past week for my room! Below are some of the main places for furniture shopping, and I need to have gone to all of them at least two times. It turns out to be pretty perseverance searching for new furniture. The size’s have got to be right, as well as the colors’ reached match.
This Swedish store needs no introduction. The HK Ikea is actually 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 cover HKD70 to acquire any tiny thing delivered.
Ikea is my favorite furniture store. It’s chic yet affordable. I’d love to only have from Ikea, and so i adore the entire DIY system offered at Ikea. I finished up only obtaining the bathroom water basin from their store, and getting everything cheaper from local stores. It doesn’t often make sense to invest much on table Hong Kong when I don’t know how long I’ll last with this city.
Pricerite is really a HK chain that sells random household things which range from beds to coackroach killers (?), in a fairly low price, as being the name suggests. My relative managed to obtain a queen-size bed for under HK$2000. Though I must admit the look are nowhere as chic as Ikea’s. It’s offered in a great deal of places in HK, but is much smaller than Ikea. Additionally, it delivers totally free. 🙂
DSC is an additional HK chain that’s perhaps slightly cheaper than Pricerite. I surely could get a tiny bed along with a 3ft closet for less than HKD4000. 🙂 But it’s bigger than Pricerite, hence obtainable in less place.
Jusco is really a Japanese shopping area that’s obtainable in only in five places. Usually furniture can be purchased on the top floor, with some expensive pieces together with more fairly priced items. My relative acquired a very pricey dining table for around HK$3000 as well as a rather cheap 4-ft shelf for HK$3000.
5. Your neighborhood private (small) furniture shop
Last but not least, there are actually these local furniture shops which you see with your local neighborhood. Just my neighborhood mall alone has three of those, and so they seem to store the most hideous AND overpriced furniture that I’ve experienced. In no way is it a representation of neighborhood furniture stores. I’m sure there are a few really cozy stores that I missed in some corner in the city. Honestly, I’ve seen a lot of furniture stores in random place, but can’t really be dexipky26 to take a look. I feel rather bombarded with all the current choices already and just want to settle in ASAP. I’ve been told that Wanchai carries a whole street committed to Office chairs Hong Kong. Maybe I’ll go one day when I own my very own place and provide along a nearby friend that is great at cutting prices.
I have done finished up likely to Wanchai in the long run. There was an entire 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 stores are generally family-owned, with goods both about the cheaper and higher end, according to if the good is branded or not. It’s an excellent location to go if you’re p
lanning to renovate your home considerably, but not if you’re looking for readily made furniture.
