4 Reasons to Buy Furniture Online
by Lewis Simpson
Your furniture is the main features of your home and it is an amazing feeling when you find the perfect piece. Something with the ideal fabric, colour, shape and size can be a great statement of your personality, however finding this perfect piece is easier said than done.
Whilst shopping in-store is the most popular way for most to browse furniture, we all know how much of a tiresome task this can be. Heading online isn’t the initial idea that enters your mind, however there are so many benefits to choosing the pain-free online process for your next piece and here are just a few!
1. No Need to Leave the House
Physically shopping for furniture can be tiresome and inconvenient, but many people swear by it as the best way to buy furniture thanks to the ability to see and feel the pieces before you buy. This, however, is not always a benefit and is actually one of the biggest problems people run into, as when the piece finally arrives at their home it doesn’t look or feel the same. It is next to impossible to fully visualize the piece in your home.
When you shop online, there is no need to leave the house. Let’s face it, it is so much more convenient! When you’re online, you can browse anytime from the comfort of your home. Not only does this save you the time traveling to and from each store, but almost every online store will have a detailed list of measurements. This makes it so much easier for you to quickly measure your ideal space to imagine how it will fit.
2. Service, Not a Sales Pitch
As previously stated, shopping in-store can be good for seeing and feeling exactly what you are buying before you take the plunge, but this environment is rife with sales traps. We have all been to a furniture store and felt pressured into buying something that we don’t really want simply because the salesperson convinced us to. Shopping can be a stressful and often hostile environment that many of us fear when it comes time to enter a shop.
On the other hand, shopping for furniture online allows you to easily browse hundreds of stores and thousands of pieces at your own leisure without salespeople forcing suggestions upon you. You will receive excellent service without the sales pitch. However, if you feel that you do need assistance at any point, don’t fear, we at The Chaise Longue Company have excellent support services on our website for you to contact at any time.
3. More to Choose From
Finally, purchasing furniture on the web means that you have access to a much larger range of items to choose from compared to visiting a high street or retail park.
Buying furniture in-store limits what pieces you can find and you may have to visit dozens of stores to find anything close to that perfect piece you have been dreaming of. Buying your furniture online not only means that you have a much larger range of items to choose from, but also provides room for so much more customisation. In store furniture is often mass-produced, boxed up and lacks any unique personality.
Here at The Chaise Longue Company, we offer fully bespoke furniture where you can choose any size, style, fabric, colour and even your own legs and buttoning! If you were looking for something truly unique, we can even upholster your piece in your own provided fabric.
So, if you’re looking for something specific, unique and a little more you, you’ve got a much better chance of finding exactly what you want online.
4. Save Time and Money
Not having to drag themselves to every retail park and furniture shop in town has to be a bonus, online shoppers get the luxury of saving the considerable amount of time that it can take trying to find that perfect piece.
The same goes for your wallet too! As more and more brands go ‘online-only’, without that expensive shop to maintain, online furniture makers can often provide better offers than their high street competitors.
