When you purchase quality products, you save money in the long run

It feels like everything today is mass produced.  The big box stores are continually trying to undercut their competitors in every way possible.  They look for every opportunity to alter production in order to get prices lower.

The degrading quality of products is a major problem that increases as companies find ways to lower costs.  Products are made of the cheapest materials and assembled as quickly as possible.  This has become a serious problem in some industries.  Large furniture pieces are now cutting corners in every way possible.  Dressers are made with flimsy imitation wood and constructed poorly.  It’s the little things that make the quality lower.  The hardware used, types of rails, and how they are assembled are all being done as cheaply as possible.  The drawers on cheap furniture can break easily since they lack dovetail corners.  These are where the corners are cut using a series of pins that interlock, giving each joint more strength and resistance to stress.  These same types of joints are what helps set quality cabinetry apart in homes and businesses as well.

Quality drawers that last

What the larger companies, and consumers, are missing is that while using quality parts and construction might raise costs slightly it results in products that last exponentially longer.  So the additional cost is more than made up in the quality and durability of each product.  Using the above example of how drawers are made stronger using dovetail corners can show this perfectly.  Many people have struggled with keeping cheap furniture and cabinetry together.  They are regularly having to repair and apply band aid type fixes until they finally have to replace it.

So while buying lower end products saved a small amount of money on the initial purchase, it ends up costing more in the long run.  This is especially applicable with furniture and cabinets.  When these are built with quality features and components like dovetail corners, it’s easy to see how they are able to withstand wear and tear so much better.

Hand-made drawers have superior quality and value

Finding items that feature handmade quality is another way to ensure you are getting something that will last.  Handcrafted products ensure that someone is working on the product and able to spot any flaws during the building process.  When products are handmade, they are usually also using better products as well.

When you find these qualities in products you can be sure that you won’t have to replace them shortly.  They will withstand the rigors of everyday life.  You will have furniture, cabinets, or whatever else you have purchased that will last longer and save you money in the long run.
