5pt">Furniture business is one of the lucrative business in Nigeria. That you can run from home.
Recently one of my new neighbor went to buy a new set of IMPORTED BED, CHAIR AND SHELVES. Yes, the furniture
we bought are imported designer furniture but the
question is — How many Nigerians can afford
imported furniture? Local furniture business in
Nigeria is a well-kept secret and seriously
undervalued business opportunity.
Many Nigerians want to have their housed/rooms fully furnished buy how many of them can pay the prize of the Imported furniture The
best part is that the Nigeria furniture are actually
very good-looking, especially when it is designed
by a good Carpenter.
local made furniture are nice too, and some of
them last long as well.
The good part of this is that you don't have to be a carpenter before you start this business. All you need is the capital to start with probably #150-300 thousand Naira.
Youmay add more, expand, and add imported
furniture or even begin to manufacture the superior
type here in Nigeria. You can decide to start with 3 seater sofa or king-size bed. Your carpenter can do it for #80000 if you know your way you can sell for #300-400 thousand am make enough money.

The 4 simple STEP TO TAKE TO GET YOUR FURNITURE BUSINESS GET STARTED.
The first thing to look at after getting your business name. Is to go to the CAC office or there website and register your business name.
LOOK FOR A GOOD CARPENTER
Before you can trust a carpenter with your money and getting a bad job later. First as for sample of their previous work. If you are satisfied with it you can then go ahead to place your order
They will be responsible for supplying you the
furniture you need to sell to your customers. A full
set of Living Room Chairs (N70,000), 2 Beds
(N40,000), and a Dinning Set (N20,000) is all you
need for a start. You may add very good Foams
on those Beds which you are going to sell
together with the beds and make profits from both.
Get A Showroom For Your Local Furniture
You need a showroom to be able to display your
furniture to the public. Make sure it is by the
roadside for passerby to see them. Advertising is
everything in business, if your furniture is hidden,
no one will see them and you wouldn’t make a
sell. You must by all means get your product
where people can see them for you to make enough sale.
If you don’t have money for a showroom, go for
open place by the roadside. Many Nigeria
furniture sellers, sell at the open place by the
roadside, and they still make good sells.
Create a professional website for your business to show your product there. Share fliers, handbill and also put a banner in your street entrance.
