How to Read Furniture Assembly Guides

There are few things more exciting than receiving your new furniture. You can hardly wait to put it together and use it for the first time. However, there are few things more frustrating than opening the box containing your new furniture to find a confusing, hard-to-read assembly guide. Don't give up. Your furniture assembly is still possible. Whether you're assemblingbedroom furniture or bookcases, there are a few simple tips to help you figure out how to read furniture assembly guides.

Assembling Furniture:

  1. Give yourself enough time. The first step in dealing with furniture assembly guides is to make ample time for reading and assembling the product. Don't wait until you need the furniture to begin assembling the pieces. The assembly guide with your new furniture often has complex details that could be missed if you're in a rush. If you take your time, you'll be able to catch all the necessary pieces and instructions and end up with a perfectly assembled piece of furniture.

  2. Read the instructions. Before you begin assembling your furniture, read the instructions completely through a couple of times. Reading the instructions will give you a general idea of the assembly's progression and can eliminate inconvenient surprises. You'll be more familiar with the instructions and the process will go faster, which means you'll be able to enjoy your fully-assembled bedroom furniture sooner.

  3. Double check the included parts. Your assembly guide should list included parts. Check the included pieces against the instructions before you get started to ensure you're not missing any parts for your bookcases. This is especially important to do with furniture featuring lots of small parts. Another good idea is to double check the instructions to see if you need to supply your own hammer or screwdriver in order to complete your furniture assembly. Have it ready before you begin. You don't want to be in the middle of your furniture assembly and have to leave your project to find a piece of hardware necessary for completion.

  4. Get some help. Have another person help you with furniture assembly. They'll be able to offer a hand in the construction of your furniture and may also give a helpful second opinion on any particularly confusing instructions in the assembly guide. An extra set of hands will make your furniture assembly go much faster.

  5. Pay attention. Make sure to pay close attention to both the text and the included pictures in your instructions. Both will be valuable as you assemble your furniture. You will cut down on injuries as well if you pay attention as you assemble your furniture.
