Tick off those annoying home repair jobs this spring with BPF Online’s components and parts

“Just had to try and source some little feet tubes for dining chairs. What a great knowledge Jason has. No waiting around either – answers almost instant and alternatives supplied as workarounds. It’s these small things that bug us in our daily lives and getting round to fixing them can take years – so, delighted to have chosen this company”

This was a lovely review left for us on Trustpilot just a few weeks ago.

It got us thinking about all those annoying little jobs which you put off fixing because you don’t know where to start. Often, with those tasks, once you get started, don’t take that long.

So here are a few jobs we almost all have on our to-do lists for several months at a time, just waiting for fix-it inspiration to bite.

Headboard bolts

Often buying a bed is expensive enough. Sometimes it takes a while to get around to buying a headboard. Other times we choose to change our headboard to fit our décor. Yet, it doesn’t matter how safely you store those headboard bolts, they’re never where you expect them to be. Or if they are, the thread is damaged. Or maybe they simply aren’t the right size. At BPF Online, we sell the standard M8 Headboard bolts, but we also have a wider range of bolts including 5/16th BSW headboard bolts. These aren’t the only bed repair fittings we sell either. We also sell metal divan bed base clips, moulded bedding corners and ring front handle sliders for divan drawer fronts.

Glides for chairs and tables

Over time, glides on chairs and other pieces of furniture can become scratched and damaged. This can lead to rough pieces of plastic or metal protruding which risk injuring toddlers and pets or damaging your flooring. Again, this is one of the jobs you may put off for months. Maybe, like me, you’ve covered up the sharp edges with felt pads that last a few months and then fall off. For just pennies, you can buy screw-in furniture glides, tap-in furniture glides and push-in furniture glides that literally take less than a minute to fit. With a permanent solution, you can have peace of mind when it comes to little fingers, delicate paws and costly floor surfaces.

Finding the right furniture feet

If you’re one of the many who have found the perfect sofa… but not the perfect sofa feet, it can be frustrating. Maybe you bought the sofa anyway, choosing to ignore the legs or to swap them out. However, sometimes these imperfections can be difficult to ignore when you’ve spent thousands of pounds on the right piece of furniture to end up with the wrong look.  However, at BPF Online, we sell metal sofa feet in all different shapes, sizes, styles and finishes. What’s more, if we don’t have the exact style you’re looking for, just give us a call and we’ll see if we can track it down for you. We don’t stop at sofa feet either. We supply furniture frame feet perfect for tables, cabinets and chairs too.

Drawer Repairs

It can be so very frustrating when a drawer breaks. Either there isn’t enough strength in the drawer structure to hold it together once it’s filled with blankets, or maybe it’s been moved once too many times. Either way, the drawer that falls apart when you pull it too far out, or the one that falls off its runners when you open it isn’t fun for anyone. Luckily, at BPF Online, we have the right components to make fixing this a breeze.

We sell modesty blocks to offer increased strength to the drawer structure and cover caps to hide your repairs. We even sell soft-close drawer runners. If there’s something else you need, simply give us a call and we’ll see if we can help.

Kitchen Plinth repairs

Kitchen plinths – the headache recognized by every owner of an older kitchen. Plinth clips are one of the first things to break in the kitchen and one of the most obscure things to have to repair. But here, at BPF Online, we sell kitchen leg sets that include clips and plates and everything else you need for fitting or repairing kitchen units and plinths.

Our Trustpilot reviews give us an impressive rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars and we’re so proud that so many mention how helpful the BPF team have been. So, if you’re struggling to get something fixed and need to know how to get hold of that perfect component, give us a call. We’ll do what we can to help as we believe that customer service is what sets our business apart. Or, if you’ve been impressed by our customer service, please do leave us a review on Trustpilot. We always love to receive feedback from our customers – especially when we’ve helped out.
