online furniture shopping in the modern day

happy monday! today I am excited to share a guest post from our guest blogger alice watson. she is talking about online furniture stores: how shopping is now fast, easy, and convenient.


It used to be, shopping online was a big to-do. When you moved into a new home, you had to go out 
to a furniture store, talk to a salesman, and then maybe bargain back and forth before you buy something. Sometimes it may take several trips before you find something you like or that fits your space, and then you might have to wait another week or two before the company delivers the stuff you want. So, if you were moving into a new home, you actually had to shop way before your move-in date or else you might have to sit on boxes and the floor for a while.

However, with technology today, you don’t have to do this. You don’t even have to get dressed or leave the house. You can shop for anything on the Internet today, even furniture. You can use Google to search for stores that sell furniture. You can find an online furniture store that has something you like and order from them. At the very least, you need a picture of the piece and the price. All you have to do is pick the one you want, put it into your shopping cart, checkout and wait for its arrival.


Use a search engine to find a store anywhere in the world. Of course, you should probably find something in the same country or even in the same state so you do not have to pay a lot for shipping. Many stores today are very sophisticated. Some have features that can help you visualize the piece of furniture in your home. They may have special programs that you can use, like a 3D software so you can see the piece in your home. Some places may even let you customize the color and upholstery.

Choosing a piece of furniture from a website is just like walking into a regular store, some may think it’s even better. For one thing, you don’t have to leave the home. However, you do need more preparation. First, you need to know the exact measurements of the area you want to put the piece in-- that way, you can buy a piece that fits in the area. Don’t forget to measure the doorways and entryways of your home, and leave at leave 12 inches around couches and tables so people can pass around.


With so many online furniture stores, how can you find the right one? You need to make sure that the online furniture store you deal with is reputable. Do some research online and try to find reviews of the company. If other people have bad reviews, then you should stay away or at least be very careful. However, there are many good sites out there. You just have to find the right one. That way, you can just order online, sit back, and wait for your new furniture online.


thank you alice! >> 2 of my favorite discounted online furniture stores are: one kings lane & joss and main. many retail stores sell their entire store online as well, so if you know you like the stores style- shopping online with them is a good place to start.
