We purchase IKEA furniture
because of its price and then we struggle for hours to put it together (that is
if you didn’t use Assemble Bay!). Once the furniture is put together you are
then able to sit back and enjoy it! But what happens if you decide to move
After it took so long to put together you know it may be just as
difficult to pull apart and you risk losing parts. So what should you do?
There are three options for your IKEA furniture and it is important to
pick the option that best suits your current situation.
1. Leave the furniture as is
This option will certainly assist
you in saving time and a lot of energy. However, you won’t be saving money
through this option. This is because the furniture is still together and is
taking up a lot of room. You will also have to ensure that if you are using
removalists, that they are fully aware of all the big items of furniture that
they will have to move.
2. Take the furniture apart
Taking apart your flatpack
furniture will ensure that it will fit easily into a removalist truck. It is
also less likely that it will get damaged because it will be easy to manoeuvre
around particularly difficult places. However, if you are not a person that
literally keeps everything, then you are likely to have thrown out the
instructions! You will need the instructions so you can properly disassemble
and not damage your furniture.
Also you need to think about the struggles you
had with putting it together, because you will have to go through it again, not
only once, but twice (or you could use Assemble Bay to take the stress out of disassembling
and reassembling the furniture)!
3. Leave it behind
This is certainly the easiest
option. If you are moving home, it could be time for big changes. You could
leave your flatpack furniture behind and purchase new furniture to go with your
new home! Don’t forget that you purchase IKEA furniture primarily for its
price, not its durability.
Therefore, when you move house, it may be time to
get rid of that old furniture for something new. Furniture is like fashion and
with every new year and every new season there is always something to really
bring out the best in your new home space.
