In this day and age, there are many advantages to buying flat pack furniture. In most cases, it’s inexpensive, lightweight and can be ordered online so you get to skip the showroom altogether. Although, far too many of us have had the experience of hauling that furniture box into the house with the excitement that your new home addition is finally here, all to realize shortly after unboxing that it’s broken down into a million pieces with pages and pages of indecipherable instructions. Oh, and you’ll need to rummage through the garage for a drill, socket wrench, level and hammer before you can get started. And voilà! Several hours later, you have a wobbly new piece of furniture with a handful of screws and washers that (for some reason) didn’t get used along the way. But you did it. You completed this seemingly impossible setup, and only grew a few new grey hairs along the way.
We wish this kind of furniture-building experience was just a joke, but unfortunately, many of us have been through a very real, similar ordeal. At Zinus, it’s precisely because of this struggle that we’re dedicated to changing the game when it comes to assembly. To take the frustration out of setting up your own furniture, we craft our assembly with three things in mind:
- Include all required tools (and some of our products even come together with no tools needed)
- Easy to understand instructions
- Building time that takes under an hour (in some cases just minutes!), whether it’s a bed frame, sofa or box spring
And best of all, every piece we have is beginner-friendly; no advanced engineering degree required!
Still need some convincing? Check out some of the different experiences from actual customers who have unboxed and assembled our products.
