Why It’s Important to Use High Quality Furniture Fittings

 |  Furniture Tips

It is imperative to use high quality furniture hardware in manufacturing, as it enhances the value of your furniture.  Using high quality furniture fixings an improve the functionality, durability, and aesthetics of a product, while better pleasing customers and potentially increasing sales in the future. Discover the main reasons why furniture manufacturers should ensure that the furniture hardware chosen is of a high standard:


Furniture that functions exactly as it should, without breaking, falling apart or being stiff is a sign of high quality furniture fixings. Highly functioning furniture fittings can be sourced from reputable suppliers and are submitted to rigorous quality tests, much like those of SCF Hardware. With high quality furniture drawer runners, wardrobe fittings and more, the final product will function smoothly and as intended. Using furniture fixings that have an additional feature, such as soft close or magnetic runners, can enhance the value of the furniture and lead to high customer retention, greater sales and more.


Secondly, durability is an important factor in the consumer buying process of furniture. Customers will not be satisfied with furniture that breaks or doesn’t function after a short period of time. High quality drawer runners such as the Accuride 3832 soft close drawer runner, will allow drawers to open smoothly for years, due to their partially shielded mechanism that prevents interference from dust and debris. Many of SCF Hardware’s metal furniture fittings are plated with zinc, chrome, or nickel, which are ideal as they are resistant to external effects such as corrosion damage. Using durable furniture fixings can enhance the reputation of your manufacturing business.


High quality furniture fittings are often near invisible.  For example, a push to open latch as opposed to a cabinet handle in a kitchen is more aesthetically pleasing and creates a flawless feel. For those who desire a more traditional aesthetic, browse our range of luxury cabinet knobs and handles from trusted kitchen furniture fittings company Hettich.
