How to Buy Furniture: A Furniture Website or a Showroom?
05.03.2018 10:14

Knowing how to buy furniture properly can save you a lot of money and heartbreak. You should never use a furniture website to buy furniture. You do not know what you are buying other than the photograph and description. You cannot show the real color, the real dimensions and definitely not the real quality from a photograph and a description!

Here are some of the problems you will face if you make your selection and purchase from a furniture website. That is no way to buy furniture and here is why:


The Color

These problems are being presented in no particular order, since each person's priorities are different. Color is mentioned very first because several have the false impression that color can be accurately depicted online.

Here's news for you. Look at Van Gogh's 'Sunflowers' on four different screens, let alone four different computers, and you may see four different tones of yellow!


Go to this site for more details:


The same applies to the furniture you will discover on a furnishings website.The only way to be sure that the furniture you are buying is the shade you want is to visit the showroom. If they do not have your shade option in stock, then ask them to get it in or you won't buy it. The shade of upholstery can be extremely important, and cherry real wood can look dark brown online. Both the fabric and the real wood can appear different between the showroom and online tones.


The Construction

All sofas and chair of the same style look the same online. You cannot show if it has been hand-crafted using traditional joinery and carpentry joints. You do not know if the body has been fashioned using strong mortise and tenon joints that use the strength of the wood, or if it has been screwed and glued simply. Only one of these will fall apart when the screws corrode and the glue softens with humidity and humid conditions.


You cannot tell if the sofas have been upholstered with tied springs and layers of padding, or simply with cushions lying on plywood or chipboard base. You cannot even show from a picture online in case a table or cabinet is fabricated from stained plywood particleboard or if it is solid American hardwood!


Use a Furniture Showroom

There is no way whatsoever so that you can assess the quality of furniture by looking at representations on a website. Yes, many furniture manufacturers and dealers have sites. However, the more responsible of these do not permit you to purchase online.

American furniture firms such as L & J.G. Stickley, Southwood Furniture, Simply Amish, The Custom Shoppe, Canal Dover and Sherrill Home furniture do not enable you to buy online. They point one to their dealers. These dealers have offline stores known as furniture showrooms, where you can view your preferred choices before you get them.


How to Buy Furniture

How to buy furniture the correct way is first to decide what type of furniture you need for your area. You should furnish one room at a time, even though you are furnishing your whole home. Tackle it one area at a time at least for the main pieces. Accent and occasional home furniture can be bought later.


When you have a rough idea of what you want, check out your local furniture stores and select one or two that has a website. Go to the site and seek out your alternatives of furniture. Not the actual make and model, but the style and color. Most websites provides a search box you can use, and the better furniture stores shall provide you with links to all the furniture manufacturers whose products they offer.


Check out everything available on that site that meets your needs. Write out a list, and then learn where the showrooms are. Your next site is to visit the showrooms and inspect your choices. You can view what they look like in real life, and what the shades really are - not how they seem in a photograph on a website.


Get a Feel for the Quality

You may also touch and feel the furniture. Sit on chair and sofas and lie on mattresses. Test for yourself how very easily sofa beds transfer between their two utilizes. Inspect the strength of bunk beds for your children, and get a good visual indication of how large that dining table really is - including when it is extended with the extra leafs or flaps.


That is how to buy furniture. Search for a furniture website and then the furniture showroom. Make your initial choice online, then confirm it by seeing the home furniture in the showroom. You shall then have nobody to blame but yourself if you make a wrong choice.
