Group living facilities can’t get by with just any old furniture. Each facility has special needs for its furniture and local retailers may have trouble meeting those requirements. Contract furniture sellers can recommend the right furniture solutions for your facility. Here are three reasons why you should choose a contract furniture seller over a local retailer.
Experience with Group Home Furniture
Local retailers are great for homeowners looking for a nice living room set or a comfy armchair. Group home facilities need more than that. Group home furniture can withstand heavy use and resist spills and other issues that regular homeowners don’t encounter on a regular basis. Contract sellers can offer furniture solutions specifically designed for potential situations, such as:
- Incontinence seating
- Limited mobility chairs
- Bariatric furniture
- Anti-contraband furniture
- Flammability code compliance
- Suicide and self-harm solutions
An Ability to Manage Both Quantity and Budget
Unlike homeowners, it’s not very feasible for group living facilities to buy furniture one piece at a time. Many group living professionals need to order furniture in larger quantities on a budget. While local retailers can struggle with bulk orders, quantity is not a problem for contract furniture sellers.
Quantity isn’t the only hurdle for group homes. Buyers often have a furniture budget as well. Contract furniture sellers can work with you to find solutions that work with both your budget and your needs. Design consultants can give you advice on furniture options that can serve your patients without breaking the bank at the same time.
With a local retailer, what you see may be what you have to get. That isn’t the case with a contract furniture seller. Group home buyers can customize their selections online. This allows you to pick and choose different benefits for your furniture. This includes thousands of contract furniture fabrics that can add special benefits such as fluid and bacterial resistance. You can even see what these fabrics will look like with our 3d fabric visualizer.
