Buying furniture online can be stressful, especially when it comes to high-end furniture. Since you don't have the item in front of you, it can be more difficult to convince yourself to buy it: Will it look exactly like the picture?
Is it made of quality materials? Will it be the right size?
Rest assured: by following a few precautions, it is possible to buy a piece of furniture online safely, and be sure to be satisfied with the furniture in question. The following lines will help you make an informed choice during your next virtual shopping session!
Buy your furniture from a reputable online source
The first thing you should do is make sure you buy from a reputable furniture retailer. Choose a store whose name is already familiar to you, and that has been in business for several years: this way, you will have a better chance of finding a reliable and efficient online shopping service. If possible, we also recommend that you choose a Quebec-based business in order to benefit from better after-sales service in case of dissatisfaction.
Make sure you read the description of the furniture before buying it, and check the dimensions
Whether it's a new sofa for your living room, or a dining table, it is always imperative to know the product well before buying. Any self-respecting online furniture store must offer a description sheet for each of its products, including the dimensions and materials used to make each piece of furniture. Knowing the materials with which the furniture was made will allow you to be sure of its quality.
In addition, it is very important to know the exact dimensions of the furniture before you buy it, to be sure that it will fit well in its environment. You definitely want to avoid getting a table that's too big for the dining room, or a couch that's too small to hold the whole family!
Understand how shipping costs and return policy work before buying furniture online
To avoid any nasty surprises, make sure you understand how the retailer's shipping costs work, and ask about their return policy. If possible, buy from a store that offers at least 30 days to return the furniture at no extra cost.
