Our advice before buying furniture online
June 15, 2022
Are you moving house and buying new furniture? Or do you simply want to redecorate the interior of your home? Here are our tips for buying your future furniture online safely and without making mistakes !
Before looking for your happiness, carefully calculate the space you have available. This may sound basic, but this step is essential. Don't forget any measurements: width, length, height. This will prevent you from ending up with an armchair that is far too big or a table that is too small for your living room.
Without having the product in front of you, it is difficult to imagine what your future purchase will look like in your flat. To make it easier for you, many augmented virtuality applications have been developed in recent years. They will allow you to visualise the furniture of your dreams in your home! If necessary, some retailers offer to send you colour and material charts so that you can get a clearer idea before placing your order.
You should pay particular attention to the site where you have found your dream furniture. Look at the customer reviews, check if the payments are secure, pay attention to the delivery conditions (delivery times can be up to 6 or 8 weeks depending on the site) and the returns! Indeed, you are not safe from disappointment, some sites may charge you for the return. Also, be careful with shipping costs. The delivery of a large piece of furniture can increase the final bill, especially if the goods are delivered from abroad.
The Internet is full of different offers, so compare the different sites selling the sofa or table of your dreams to get the best deal! Indeed, not all sites have the same conditions of sale, return, delivery etc.
If necessary, create a table to help you decide !
As well as being cheaper, second-hand furniture brings a vintage touch to your home. Moreover, by opting for second-hand furniture, you preserve the environment by fighting against overconsumption and therefore, overproduction.
Now you have all the information you need to buy the sofa that will sit proudly in the living room of your new home !
