Thinking about buying a new couch? A couch is arguably the most important piece of furniture in the house. After all, it’s where people spend the most time with their feet up at home. With this in mind, why not try a DIY couch made out of pallet wood?
There are many advantages to using pallet furniture as a couch that the whole family can stretch out on. Here are some of the most important reasons why a DIY pallet couch or other piece of furniture is worth considering.
Sofas can be expensive thanks to the cost of fabrics that they are made out of. Ditch the suede and the leather and instead buy a pallet wood couch set, which is extremely cost-effective. By saving money on the cost of the couch, finances can be spent elsewhere, such as on groceries or kids’ activities.
Because the sofa is made up of individual pallets, it can be altered and extended due to changing circumstances. This means that if extra guests are coming to stay, you can enlarge the couch, then put back to normal size once the visitors have left. Couches made from heavy fixed wood frames can be bulky and difficult to move around, which is not the case with pallet furniture by Pallet West.
Don’t think of wood as being boring and ugly compared to materials like leather. In fact, a pallet wood couch can create an extremely stylish rustic look which gives the living room a cosy feel. Perfect for settling down on a rainy night in front of the fire.
While ready-made furniture can’t be altered easily – and may be ruined in the process – pallet wood couches can be repainted and customized to suit the desires of the homeowner. Why not surprise guests with a new design every time they come round? It would certainly be a good conversation starter.
Ever watched that scene in Friends when the gang is trying to move a heavy couch up the stairs of an apartment building? For many people, that’s the grim reality of moving furniture to a new house or apartment. However, because pallet wood can be taken apart easily, moving a couch is as easy as 1, 2, 3: simply dismantle all the separate parts of the couch and then re-assemble it in the new house or apartment.
Even though pallets may be easy to move, they are incredibly durable in order to withstand heavy use. The problem with fixed frame furniture is that the frame can become buckled over time if many people are sitting on it. The separate pallets ensure that the frame of the couch will not warp because of the pressure put on it over years of use.
Hopefully, this guide will help you make an informed decision about considering pallet furniture for your home.
