No need for flat-pack hell!

If you’ve had much experience of trying to build flat-pack furniture, you’ll know just how much fun this isn’t!

It’s not so bad putting a few small and simple items together, but try the bigger stuff like a chest of drawers, for example, or a large bookcase and you’ll be there for hours, cursing your luck and wondering why you ever went down this route.

Then, of course, there’s the quality issue – or lack of quality that should be. Flat-pack furniture is nearly always plastic-coated chipboard. It doesn’t stand the test of time – nor is it really designed to.

Now all this is fine if you accept it and you’re handy at building it when you get home and you aren’t the type of person who wants to hurl it all through the window half way through the home-build process! And flat pack furniture can be stylish, versatile, and is often full of good lateral ideas.

But if, on the other hand, you prefer something a little more solid, in a solid wood like pine or oak for example, and you don’t want to assemble complicated bits and pieces yourself, then it may be wiser to go for a little higher quality.

It needn’t cost the earth. Have a look, for example, at the discount bookcases for sale at and you’ll quickly see that solid quality can also come cost effectively when you know where to look.

The same company supplies top quality furnishings across a whole range of styles – most usually in solid oak or pine. The site also you to search by style, or by range or by price – or imply to search for individual items like a bed, coffee table, pine bookcase or chest of drawers etc.

Some pieces do need some home assembly, but this is usually relatively quick and easy – and is designed to make sure you can get furnishings through doorways etc. It certainly isn’t flat-pack hell!
