If Amazon wasn’t already one of the most convenient shopping options available today, it certainly increased its claim on the title after unveiling the Amazon Locker system.
There are thousands of Amazon Locker locations in more than 900 cities across America.
Amazon Lockers are “self-service kiosks” located in grocery stores and pharmacies where you can pick up your Amazon packages for no additional fee.
Amazon first launched Amazon Lockers in 2011 in Seattle, New York City, and London. The company has since expanded to Whole Foods, 7-Eleven, Rite Aid, and other retailers in the US and abroad. Amazon Lockers were even at the Coachella Music Festival in 2019.
An Amazon Locker may be especially desirable for those who live in big cities and aren’t comfortable leaving packages in a regularly trafficked lobby or on a doorstep. The lockers can also provide some relief for those weary of porch pirates.
Quick tip: To find the closest Amazon Locker to you, visit this website and log into your account.How Amazon Lockers work

Amazon Prime subscribers will typically receive their items in two days, but you don’t have to be a Prime member to use Amazon Lockers.
Quick tip: Amazon Lockers are actual lockers, so they have size limitations. All items in your order must be within 16 x 12 x 14 inches and weigh less than 10 pounds. So, you can’t really use Amazon Locker for orders like furniture. You can find out what’s eligible here.
Anyone with an Amazon account can use Amazon Locker if there is one in their area. Access to Amazon Lockers depends on the store hours of the location where the Amazon Locker is.
For example, if your items are at a Whole Foods, your access to the Amazon Locker depends on the store’s opening and closing time. One of the major benefits of an Amazon Locker is being able to pick up your order on evenings and weekends.
Yes. If an item is eligible to be returned to an Amazon Locker, it will say so when you go to return the item through the site’s Online Returns Center. Size limitations also apply. Learn more about returning an item through an Amazon Locker on Amazon’s website.

How to Use Amazon Locker
If you need to order a product from Amazon but don’t want it shipped to your home, Amazon Locker offers a secure alternative.
Whatever the reason, you can have the item delivered to an Amazon Locker, where your package will be kept safe until you pick it up.
Amazon offers more than 2,800 lockers across more than 70 major metropolitan areas in the US; find them at Amazon’s Whole Foods Markets and other stores and outlets. The lockers themselves are self-service kiosks, so you can use them even during evenings and on weekends.
Shop for your Amazon product online as usual. During checkout, specify the Amazon Locker as your delivery location. Once your package is delivered, you’ll receive an email alert with a six-digit code to access to your locker.
There’s no extra cost to use an Amazon Locker versus your regular address. The only significant downside is that Amazon gives you just three days to pick up your item. If you fail to get your product within the three-day deadline, it is shipped back to Amazon and you are issued a refund.
But as long as the locker is convenient and accessible to you, this can be a handy alternative to having items sit on your front porch. How does this all work? Let’s check it out.
Find an Amazon Locker LocationFirst, you need to look for and select your closest Amazon Locker location. To do this, browse to Amazon’s Locker Delivery page. Make sure you’re signed into your Amazon account. Click the Find a locker near you button.
Search for a Location
At the Locker search page, you can hunt down a locker by address, ZIP code, landmark, or locker name. Make your choice and click the Search button. Enter an address, for example, and Amazon asks you to refine the search by selecting your city. The same applies for certain landmarks. Choose your city and click Select.
Choose an Amazon Locker Location
Choosing your correct city or entering a ZIP code or locker name (which can be the name of a city) displays a list of Amazon Locker locations in the area. Choose the locker location you want to use and then click Select. The location is saved to your Amazon address book.
Manage Amazon Addresses
Once you select a locker location, you will be able to manage it among your other saved addresses. Use it for one delivery, select it as your new default address, or delete it and go back to choose another location.
Shop with Amazon Locker
Now it’s shopping time. Find the Amazon item or items you want to order and place them in your shopping cart as you normally would. Proceed to checkout. The checkout page now lists the locker you chose as a pickup location. Select your locker and click the Use this address button.
Confirm the locker location as the shipping address. Select your payment method. Note the delivery date. Review the order and shipping details, then click the Place your order button.
Get the Email Code
When the item has been delivered to the locker, you’ll receive an email informing you that it’s ready to be picked up. The message will display a number and barcode that you’ll use to pick up your package and a date by which you must get the item. Print the email or save it on your mobile phone so you have the code handy.
You can also opt to receive shipment updates via text message. Open your Amazon account settings page for “Shipment Updates via Text” and click the Subscribe button to activate the text messaging.
Find the Amazon Locker
Head over to the address given in your Amazon Locker location. The exact spot of the lockers vary depending on the store or shopping center.

I found the lockers in my local Whole Foods store in the corner of the vestibule near the shopping carts.
Enter the Code
Tap the Amazon Locker touch screen to begin the checkout process. You will need the email code you received in order to get your package. Take out the code and decide how you want to unlock your locker.

How to choose the right cabinet – advice from Mr. DorsJuly 15, 2021
How to choose the right cabinet
How to choose the right cabinet? Many buyers are faced with such a question, since the market is filled with a mass of relevant offers, and it is not as easy to purchase suitable furniture without preparation as it seems at first glance. The wardrobe solves many problems, while it must harmoniously complement the interior. What are the secrets of choosing a cabinet, and what to look for during installation, we will talk in this article.
A cabinet is a type of furniture designed for organizing and storing things. Translated from German, the word “Schaffen” literally means “to put in order. ” Products today are presented in different formats, and each customer is able to find a cabinet in accordance with taste preferences. Let’s consider the main functions of furniture:
- organization and storage of clothes, personal belongings, utensils, securities, etc.;
- competent distribution of space;
- masking of room defects;
- stylish addition to the interior;
- wardrobes are used for zoning rooms
Bulky items have been replaced by practical and spacious furniture that can instantly transform the space, give it additional comfort and light.A lot of things scattered in the house can be compactly arranged on the shelves, which will eliminate clutter, hide various objects from the eyes of guests.
Depending on the design possibilities of the model, you can significantly save square meters of the kitchen, living room or hall. Today, models are available on the market that are focused on rooms with a small area, as well as complex geometry. Before choosing the right wardrobe for a bedroom or another room in a house or apartment, it is necessary to study the varieties of products, depending on the type of construction: they are mobile and are great for rooms with a large area;
The cabinet classification has several options. When choosing a product, it is important to focus on its purpose and use in a particular room:
- kitchens are an integral part of a kitchen set, free-standing cabinets are also possible for storing dishes and kitchen utensils;
- office – have a laconic design, supplemented with glass doors, and are intended for organizing documents, books, office supplies;
- buffets – types of cabinets that are installed in dining rooms and living rooms, used for a spectacular presentation of dining sets and tea sets, crystal products;
- bookstores – equipped with wooden shelves for storing books in the living room and library;
- clothes – universal models that can be installed in any of the rooms.
Before choosing the right wardrobe, it is advisable to designate a place for its installation and determine the purpose of the furniture in the house. Fashion trends have influenced modern product models. Swing wardrobes have become associated with the remnants of the Soviet past; functional compartments have come to replace them, which solve many problems.
Choosing a cabinet is a responsible event that requires the buyer to know the basic criteria for furniture.Consider the main parameters that you should be guided by in the selection process:
- take into account the dimensions of the room, massive furniture with a large number of cabinets and shelves is permissible in rooms from 20 squares;
- Modern models should be as spacious and ergonomic as possible in order to even accommodate as many things as possible;
- when choosing we focus on the type of room and the amount of things that need to be hidden from prying eyes;
- you shouldn’t get out of the general design concept, therefore we select the material and color depending on the color scheme prevailing in the room;
- pay attention to the details – the fittings must be of high quality, since the service life of the furniture depends on it;
- manufacturer – it is better to focus on the products of proven brands that have positive reviews.
The product selection process is largely dependent on prior preparation. It is necessary not only to decide on the place of installation of the new furniture, but also to check whether the wall can be used for a built-in wardrobe niche, what space needs to be filled.
Material and decoration
Material is a key factor in choosing the right furniture for organizing and storing things. The duration of operation, reliability and safety of the cabinet directly depends on the material from which the side and top panels, shelves, etc. are made.e. Consider the common materials used in the production of sliding wardrobes:
- natural wood – a strong, durable and completely environmentally friendly material that gives the furniture gloss and gives the interior pomp;
- MDF – an environmentally friendly material that almost all manufacturers turn to, it does not absorb moisture, is durable and suitable for the manufacture of countertops and facades;
- budget are a combination of MDF and chipboard panels, laminated chipboard is often used for side walls, top covers.
Increased emissions of formaldehyde, which is part of the particle board, can adversely affect human health. When choosing furniture made of chipboard, it is necessary to focus on small indicators of the concentration of harmful substances. Otherwise, harmful fumes provoke a headache and a general deterioration in well-being.
In addition, the quality of fittings and inserts made of glass and metal plays an important role. Fashionable models today are complemented by large mirrors covering the facade, stylish stained-glass windows.Metal fittings are able to ensure maximum durability of the furniture.
As for the color, there are no restrictions, the main thing is to select furniture in accordance with the color scheme of the room. Those who are thinking about how to choose the right built-in wardrobe should focus on the color of the facades. When the product is placed against a wall, pay attention to the shade of the outer sides.
The days when the brown furniture of the same type prevailed on the market are long gone. Manufacturers offer a wide palette of shades, so the furniture will harmoniously complement even the most sophisticated and original interior. More often, manufacturers prefer a light palette – beige, cream, wenge, etc.
Please note: compare the shade of the edge and surface of the cabinet panels. They can be made by different manufacturers, which together creates a contradictory picture, since the colors often do not match. Furniture loses its gloss, and on the partitions and shelves, the difference in shades is most visible.
A well-designed wardrobe is the main assistant in matters of competent distribution of space and household items. In order to organize all the things inside the closet with high quality, experts recommend purchasing the following important parts:
- hangers with a lifting mechanism – they will allow you to hang clothes at a high distance from the floor;
- Plastic baskets for small items, they can be mounted on rails, and used to store needles, threads, handkerchiefs, etc. ;
- trousers – a useful item for business people;
- special tie hangers – allow you to distribute accessories and store them in one place;
- hangers with hooks – great for towels and other bath accessories;
- Additional drawers – these are often ordered separately to provide storage space for underwear;
- shelves for shoes;
- ironing boards.
Most modern models have a number of useful options by default, but often buyers have to upgrade the cabinet to make it more ergonomic.
Wardrobes for bedrooms and kitchens
How to choose the right wardrobe for a bedroom is of interest to everyone who wants to transform a room and equip it with a multifunctional piece of furniture. Stylish and compact on the outside, the wardrobe for the bedroom perfectly hides from the eyes a lot of objects that frankly litter the room.

Furniture with decorative facades can become a highlight of the interior, and photomolecular drawings applied to the facade attract enthusiastic glances. A sliding wardrobe equipped with a mirror surface of the facade is a versatile model that visually expands the space. Furniture in soft light shades gives a feeling of lightness and comfort, while glossy fronts in contrasting colors turn furniture into a bright “spot” that gives the bedroom additional charm.
The kitchen is the main room for every housewife, so it is extremely important to know how to choose the right cabinets for this room.The kitchen set provides comfortable conditions for cooking, therefore, when choosing furniture, experts recommend following the basic selection criteria:
- clearly define the purpose of the set;
- we estimate the amount of time the hostess spends in the kitchen, since the number of hanging cabinets, shelves and additional storage space depends on this;
- we take into account the area of the kitchen;
- we take into account the peculiarities of natural lighting;
- We pay attention to the frame of the set – it is the basis of the furniture;
- frame type – prefabricated models are more mobile.
Please note: in the absence of experience in assembling kitchen sets and cabinets for the bedroom, it is recommended to contact professional assemblers who will quickly and efficiently perform the work.
If you are faced with the need to buy a wardrobe, then expert advice will help speed up the buying process and choose high-quality furniture:
- we study trends – new models look more advantageous and demonstrate an amazing level of functionality and ergonomics;
- We take into account the features of the room, the presence of windows, the location on the south or north side, etc.;
- we select the optimal type of construction;
- we decide on the choice of doors – they are sliding, hinged and suspended;
- we compare the needs with the possibilities – estimates the area of the room and the number of items that will have to be “hidden”;
- when choosing between MDF and chipboard, it is better to stop at the first option, since it is safer and more practical;
- We carefully study the content – it must fully meet the needs of the consumer;
- we decide on the design of the facade – bright cabinets with rich colors with photo printing are suitable for the kitchen, for the bedroom – it is better to stay on furniture in pastel shades;

Tips on how to choose a wardrobe from Mebel169.ru
A wardrobe is the most practical piece of furniture. It performs many useful functions:
a place for storing books, papers, electronic and household appliances of small sizes, clothes, kitchen utensils, various little things;
stylish interior decoration;
disguise of the negligence of builders – sloppy seams, pipes, uneven walls;
Divider of the room space into functional zones.
Thanks to the clever design, modern wardrobes are very comfortable. They allow you to place on shelves and drawers, in perfect order, a lot of necessary things and little things. High models up to the ceiling are in demand for small rooms, as they perfectly save space, using every precious centimeter of space as efficiently as possible.
How to choose the right cabinet for specific purposes? It is worth considering a few basic requirements for furniture.
The dimensions of the room must be taken into account. A massive wardrobe or sideboard, a kitchen set with many cupboards will take up most of the free space, leaving no room for other furnishings. Therefore, tall narrow models, graceful small cabinets are purchased in small rooms.
Cabinets must be functional. Taking up as little floor space as possible, they provide storage for as many items as possible. For this, the designers provide convenient small drawers, division into shelves, sections, multilevel rods.
The type of cabinet must correspond to its purpose. For each room and type of things intended for storage, different models are traditionally used.
The product must fit perfectly into the style of the room in which it will be installed. So, the laconic, austere design of the room does not go well with the curved legs and the chic decor of the baroque cabinet.
Interior design experts advise: before making a purchase, it is important to decide on the placement of the cabinet. Where exactly it will stand, is it possible to use piers, niches, the space on both sides of the doorway or window for these purposes. In the latter case, several models are usually purchased in the same style.
Basic types of cabinets
According to their design features, cabinets are divided into four groups:
cabinet, consisting of two side and one rear wall, bottom, top cover and front. These are completely independent pieces of furniture that can be moved to a new place, disassembled, if necessary, into components;
built-in represent a small room or storage room, located in a niche or along the end wall. At the same time, the side and back walls are absent, their role is played by the walls of the room. Also, as a rule, the structure does without a bottom and a cover. In fact, only sliding sliding doors are installed as a facade, shelves, bars, separate drawers.This design is stationary, and to fix the elements, you have to drill the walls. The built-in wardrobe allows you to rationally use all the free space;
semi-recessed models are a cross between the first two types of structures. The frame, which may be missing one or both walls, back, bottom or top, is attached to the main wall. Internal parts are also partially wall-mounted. Moving or dismantling the structure will not work without problems;
modular systems are very convenient for small rooms, rooms with complex geometry. They consist of separate elements-modules, made in the same style. Such furniture opens up room for bold experiments, gives an opportunity to show imagination. Components can be freely swapped, stacked on top of each other, added to or removed from cabinets and shelves that have become unnecessary or broken.
According to the purpose, the products are divided into the following types:
office, with glazed transparent doors, shelves for papers and documents;
Kitchen cabinets are usually purchased as part of a set.They are used to store food, household appliances, various utensils, dishes;
The buffet is installed in the dining room or living room equipped with a dining group. On the upper shelves, behind transparent glass, there are ceremonial sets, crystal, beautiful vases, and figurines. Downstairs, where the doors are blind, you can store anything;
Bookcases for the living room or library are usually equipped with open wood or glass shelves.
wardrobes or wardrobes.They are installed in hallways, corridors, children’s bedrooms, and bedrooms.
Material of manufacture
The reliability and durability of the cabinet depend on the materials from which it is made. The safety of the product also plays a significant role – the absence of toxic substances in the composition, the environmental friendliness of raw materials.
Solid wood provides high strength and durability, looks amazing, gives respectability to the environment. The disadvantages are the high price and the complexity of care.
MDF is a modern high quality, environmentally friendly material. He is not afraid of moisture, durable. It is used for the manufacture of facades, countertops.
To reduce the cost of construction, expensive wood and MDF boards are combined with cheaper laminated or veneered chipboard. Side walls, countertops, top and bottom of cabinets are made from it.
Depending on the model, the products are supplied with tempered glass inserts, colored stained-glass windows, large mirrors are mounted on the facades.Metal fittings provide strength and durability of products.
The facade is the “face” of the cabinet. It is by how attractive the front panels and doors look, how well their style fits into the interior of the room, and they choose the right model. The modern assortment of various designs is amazing. Facades can be:
made of solid wood, carved, paneled, with glass inserts;
plastic, with inserts of chrome-plated metal, aluminum;

A simple cabinet, the details fit very well, the instructions are not on one sheet in small handwriting, but a real book.finishing materials are not premium, but for the money more than.

The wardrobe, like many beautiful things in our everyday life, appeared as a piece of furniture in Italy.Prototypes began to appear in the 16th century, were small and outwardly looked like an impressive box that was placed on the table. It is from here that the word “supplier” originates. At the dawn of its existence, the first “cabinets” were used for small valuables – jewelry and documents.
Italy and Holland became trendsetters in the production of wardrobes: gradually objects increased in size, decorative furnishings became richer, and the functionality performed grew.This is how secretaries, dressers and bureaus appeared. It is curious that initially cabinetmakers paid more attention to the interior design than to the exterior: the most skillful ornament, carving or painting was located on the inner side of the doors. Noble materials were used for decoration: semi-precious stones, bronze and silver, tortoiseshell and ivory.
The veneering technology in the form familiar to us appears by the middle of the 17th century, although it was already known to the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans.It made it possible to optimize the process and kill two birds with one stone: firstly, to save valuable wood varieties, and secondly, thin cuts have a very beautiful, but no less fragile natural pattern, which veneering allows you to preserve. At the same time, the fashion for Dutch furniture seeped into England, and the cabinetmakers of foggy Albion achieved unprecedented skill both in copying and in improving technology. The favorite material of veneering among the British is walnut burl.
Cap in common people is called “witch’s broom”.This is a spherical formation on a tree trunk, which does not harm it, but opens up new opportunities for furniture craftsmen. On the cut, the burl shows a stunning fantasy pattern created by nature itself. Finding it is a great success, for every 5000 trees there is only 1 with such a formation, which is why this material is so highly valued. An excellent example of English carpentry with walnut burl – an antique cabinet from our collection. The item in the aesthetics of romanticism is equipped with hinged doors and drawers.Convertible legs with stylized heels are decorated with acanthus leaf. The front facades are veneered with a walnut burl with an elegant natural pattern, and lancet overhead hinges with a pattern of lilies fill the object with the spirit of the Middle Ages.
Another example of expert veneering is an antique Art Deco cabinet. The object is veneered with mahogany wood with a stunningly beautiful natural pattern, close to the amboin tree, the most popular for interior decoration in this style.
There are many more pieces in our collection, each of which has an interesting feature and showcases the beauty of the woody texture and the skill of the cabinetmakers of yesteryear. For example, an antique German oak display cabinet with walnut inlay at the bottom, or an English corner display cabinet richly decorated with walnut veneer.

I love reed furniture. Recently, my daughter and I transformed a boring wooden cabinet.It turned out very cool | Lifestyle
Do you like to transform old and boring pieces of furniture? If so, you can use these decorating tips and create your own original wardrobe based on this furniture from Ikea. Its silhouette is so simple that it is pretty much the perfect candidate for makeover. Just grab some cane and get a truly interesting piece of furniture that you don’t need to spend a lot of money on.
To create this cabinet, you will need to prepare the following set of tools:
- Ivar cabinet from Ikea;
- braided cane;
- jigsaw file;
- tape measure;
- electric drill;
- manual clamp;
- staple gun;
- pins for legs.
First you need to take the cabinet itself and remove both doors from it.There are also wooden strips on the doors, which are completely unnecessary for a new product. You can unscrew them with a screwdriver.
Take one door and mark with a pencil the rectangular panel in the center. To draw an even, smaller rectangle, take a measuring tape and mark a line 5.5 cm from the edge on the back of the door. Measure this distance from all sides of the door to create an inner rectangle. Repeat the same with the second door.
Next, you need to delete the tree in the drawn rectangle. You can do this with a file. To do this, you need to make several holes initially. Use an electric drill to do this by drilling holes in each corner of the rectangle. Drill a total of four corner holes – just make sure each one is within the lines of the smaller rectangle.
Place the jigsaw blade in the corner hole and start cutting.Cut along the pencil line until you reach the next corner. Do everything slowly and carefully because you want a clean and straight edge.
It is recommended to secure the door with a hand clamp, turning the door as necessary each time you cut wood.
After you cut everything along each pencil line, the rectangular panel will fall out by itself. You must remove it so that it does not get in the way. Then sand the edges and pay attention to smoothing the corners as they will be slightly rounded from the holes left over from the drill bit.
Take your prepared braided cane and scissors. You will need to trim the cane to fit the door. To make it fit, unwind the roll around the back of the door and cut it off, leaving at least about 3 cm on each side.
If you feel that it is rather difficult for you to work with cane, then pre-soak it for about a quarter of an hour.
Attach the full length of the reed from the back to each door.First of all, fasten it in the middle. Then you can stretch it in the direction of the corners, pulling the reed as tight as possible. Do not block the pre-drilled hinge holes as you will still need to hang the doors back onto the cabinet.
Assemble the cabinet itself from “Ikea” according to the instructions attached to the package. That, perhaps, is all. Now you just have to hang the cabinet doors using the drilled hinges. You can hang such a cabinet directly on the wall, but you can also put it on the floor if you add legs.It is incredibly easy to do this, because you just need to screw them to the bottom. However, this is an optional step. It all depends on your preference.
So, in just a very short time, you can create a truly stunning cabinet for storing various necessary little things. It will be roomy enough, but at the same time very original. So you can update your interior using basic materials for quite little money.
And the furniture from “Ikea” itself costs quite little, so you can easily afford it.Well, if it seems to you that a simple wooden cabinet with reeds is rather boring, then let your imagination run wild and paint it with bright colors.
