Concrete furniture is the new in thing in this day and age because it is so much cheaper to build and it is also stylish and fancy. If you look at most modern hotels and guest houses, they have opted to go for concrete furniture instead. It would be best if you decide to have concrete furniture at the point of building your home so that it can be built right in with the rest of your home but even if you realize you would like to have concrete furniture later on, it can still be done. You will need to get the furniture built onsite as the builders may not be able to carry them due to the weight.
Things you will need
It is best to get a professional builder to build the furniture for you as it takes some technique and method to pull it off. You will need to get bolts and nuts at PRENDERGAST FASTENERS PTY LTD ad a few other things to ensure the safety and the strength of the furniture that you are building. If you look online, you will see that you can make anything from your living room furniture to your bed to even your sink out of concrete which will save you a lot of money.
These things that you build will also last you forever unlike wooden furniture which needs to be replaced every few years sue to degrading. Wooden furniture tends to rot with time and bugs start to eat in to them after a few years have passed.You can also have storage shelves built with concrete and you might also need to have some wood for these.
You will need to buy stainless steel fasteners to help to keep them secure and in place. Inform your builder of your plans and he will be able to give you a list of things that you will need to put these concrete chairs, tables, beds and shelves in place. One of the biggest mistakes that home owners make is that they fail to put in enough of storage when they are building their homes which results in a very cluttered and untidy home in the future. As such, when you are building your furniture, make an effort to add in small storage spaces underneath them. In other words, instead of building solid concrete blocked, you can build them hollow instead to contain storage units within them. This will also be good for your home because they will be much lighter in weight than solid concrete blocks and this will be better for your foundation.
