FAQs about Furniture Hong Kong

Where can I buy second-hand furniture online in Hong Kong?

People come and go from Hong Kong fairly frequently. Besides, apartment sizes are generally fairly small, so people don’t have the space to hang on to furniture they no longer need. As a result, you’ll often find people needing to sell high quality, second-hand furniture. Besides, 2nd Chance, which is the wonderful second-hand furniture Hong Kong store we mention above, there are other ways to buy second-hand furniture online in Hong Kong. We recommend checking out Asiaxpat and Geoexpat.  Both these platforms enable you to buy second-hand furniture at low prices conveniently. Good items on these sites tend to sell pretty fast, but you can set up alerts on these websites to ensure you get informed straight away if a particular item of furniture is put up for sale.

How do I dispose of furniture in Hong Kong?

If you’re looking to dispose of furniture in Hong Kong, there are three best ways; selling furniture, giving it away to a friend, or donating to a charity. We have an entire article devoted to this topic.

Where can I find cheap furniture in Hong Kong?

Second-hand furniture is both cheap and sustainable; we find it hard to go beyond this option. Besides the large supply of great quality second-hand furniture, Ikea furniture is also available in Hong Kong, and they have a large shop in Causeway Bay.

Which site is best for buying furniture in Hong Kong?

Shopping for furniture online has never been easier; as long as you’ve taken the measurements of the room, and you’ve considered the size of the elevator, you’ll be able to start online shopping. While there are endless online furniture options, we particularly like the following two sites for buying furniture in Hong Kong; Decor8 and 2nd Chance. We like shopping online from Decor8 because there is so much inspiration to found on their website. We love buying from 2nd Chance‘s Facebook page because you’ll find some really great deals on high-quality, used furniture.

Does Muji sell furniture?

Yes, Muji sells a limited amount of furniture, mostly storage units, chairs, dining tables, and desks. Their designs tend to be clean and simple and come in very few color options.  The prices aren’t exactly low, but if you’re looking for durable, elegant pieces that will are timeless, Muji can be a good option.

Why is selecting furniture in Hong Kong so important?

With so many people renting in Hong Kong, there are often limitations regarding what changes you can make to your apartment. That’s why selecting the right furniture in Hong Kong is so important. Furniture, which reflects your style, can turn an ordinary apartment into a luxury statement home. The benefits of making good choices with furniture include:
– Good furniture choices will help to define the space, maximizing square feet clearly.
– You’ll likely feel calmer and more comfortable in your home with pieces that effortlessly work within the space.
– Furniture will quickly give your home a sense of individualism and style.

What are the key considerations when buying furniture in Hong Kong?

#1) Small apartment sizes
It’s rare in Hong Kong to see oversized sofas or chaise lounges, and that’s for a good reason. As you surely know too well, the size of your apartment is probably quite small. When selecting furniture in Hong Kong, you’ll likely have to ask yourself if a particular piece of furniture is essential. If it’s not critical, then unnecessary furniture will only help to make your home feel smaller. Ensure that you get out your measuring tape and measure precisely what size furniture will fit into your home.
#2) Elevators
Elevators in Hong Kong can be rather small, particularly those elevators found in older buildings. If your new furniture item can’t fit in the elevator, you might have to consider paying to get it hoisted up to your apartment. Having to hoist furniture up to your apartment will create both extra costs and extra headaches.
#3) Resale value
Let’s face it, lots of people in Hong Kong come and go, and plenty of people move around. When it comes time to try to sell or give away furniture, you’ll find that smaller-sized furniture is in high demand. In contrast, large-sized pieces are harder to find buyers for, and in fact, many charities won’t accept larger-sized pieces. If you want to learn more about selling, giving away, or donating second-hand furniture in Hong Kong, check out our article on getting rid of furniture in Hong Kong.

In Hong Kong, it’s important to get it right when deciding on which furniture to buy. There isn’t much space to make mistakes. We hope you get your measuring tape out and that you are now well prepared to start selecting furniture. Whether you a furniture enthusiast or just looking for the perfect interior design for your home, we hope this article helps you find the perfect pieces for your home. Whatever your style, from Scandinavian, Rustic, Art Deco to Mid-Century Modern, we have you covered.
