I know what you’re thinking. It’s not the furniture. It’s the fact you’ve been spending your money on things that you already know won’t fit you or look good in your house.
The reason most furniture is so hard to fit into new homes is because most buyers prefer the look of things that have been used. We would like to show you a few examples. When we first started looking at houses, we were told that a lot of the furniture that was used was made from pieces of old wooden chairs and tables. These were simply too heavy and bulky for a first-time home buyer to handle.
When we went through the various stores, we were told that many of these furniture was made from wood, metal, or the metallic component of old wooden chairs. These furniture was often damaged or destroyed by earthquakes and other large-scale disasters. Our friends and family often told us that they were looking at some really antique stuff and would like a few ideas that could be used to build a new home in the future.
For years of us living in the Pacific Northwest, we’ve had our fair share of earthquakes, but we’ve never seen anything quite like these. The good news is that a bunch of these old wooden chairs have the potential to become new furniture items, and this could be the start of a new era of used furniture shopping. It’s a fun little game, but I think it’s a little too easy.
