RTA or Ready to Assemble furniture has slowly taken over the world of furnishing. This has given rise to a new profession in the line of handymen, called “furniture assemblers”. These people offer their services for putting together ready to assemble furniture and charge a reasonable fee for their services. While some people prefer to get their work done by hiring furniture assemblers Ikea, some others are comfortable taking the responsibility on themselves.
To DIY or Not To DIY
Some people might say that ready to assemble furniture is a headache to put together. But the truth is that if you follow some basic guidelines, your assembled furniture will have great quality and efficiency along with good durability. And it is so easy to do! However, if you still feel that furniture assembly is not your cup of tea, go ahead and hire furniture assemblers Ikea. You will have great looking furniture in no time, and with minimal cost!
Here are a few “how to” tips for DIY furniture assembly. Although the tips may sound simple enough themselves, you will be surprised that they will give you a solid idea to make your assembly work easier:
Prepare an Area to Act as a Building Workspace
This is both for the protection of your home and your Ikea furniture. Furniture fittings are likely to be damaged easily if not protected properly. This is because most of the unfinished furniture is basically soft wood and liable to easy damage.
You might have most assembly instructions to show all the items are laid out on the floor before attempting to set it up. Following these instructions helps in preventing the parts from facing the wrong way once you start the installation. Also, make sure that your montage space is large enough for allowing the free movement around all the sides. Use a tray or small box for small hardware.
Create an Inventory of the Furniture Parts and Tools
While this is a non-essential step for professional and experienced furniture fitters, an amateur cannot afford to skip this important step. Professional fitters have a working knowledge of how the assembly will take place and how the building will be done. But if you do not have a solid practical experience in putting together RTA units, making an inventory will help you greatly.
In order to make the process easier, first, you need to unpack all the pieces in order to verify which ones will be needed first in sequential assembly. This also helps you to differentiate parts that look similar but have different functions. Making an inventory of hardware is also essential for inexperienced assemblers.
