Doing some home renovating? Want to upgrade your home? Buying furniture online – if you know where to look – can give your home a fresh new look. It can reinvigorate your home and create a space you love to live.
Why buy furniture online? There are 3 great benefits to shopping for furniture online. Here they are:
Benefit #1: Save Money
Many online stores – since they usually ship from a warehouse or direct from the manufacturer – don’t have the overhead costs of a brick and mortar store. So these savings get passed on to you in the form of lower prices.
You can often find price differences of up to 40% off retail. So you can get that ‘million-dollar’ look for your home without spending a fortune. I’ve found price difference of up to $1200 when I compared the local store to the online price – for the same piece.
Many people, for example, choose to upgrade their bathrooms before selling their homes. There are many online bathroom stores that sell high end designer names like Grohe and Kohler for up to 70% off retail. You’ll find everything you need in these stores like sinks, vanities, tubs, faucents and even toilets.
Benefit #2: Get Hard-To-Find or One-of-a-Kind Furniture
Shopping online gives you access to a lot of furniture brands, styles and pieces you won’t find at your local furniture store. For example, you can find hard-to-find designer brands like Trump and Stanley and specialty furniture like theatre seating.
You can find high end outdoor fireplaces or outdoor TVs. Want to add a large waterfall to your living room? No problem, there’s a large selection to choose from online. You can also get custom furniture made to fit your home or one-of-a kind items.
You wouldn’t be able to find this type of selection at your local mall – including if you spent days driving around to all the different furniture stores in your area.
So by shopping online, you get find a much wider selection of furniture – which means you can design a home that is uniquely yours. Your friends and neighbours won’t be able to understand how you could build such a stylish look.
Benefit #3: Free Shipping & $0 Sales Tax
One of the great benefits to shopping online is that you not only save money on the actual furniture costs, but many online stores also offer Free Shipping and even $0 sales tax.
If you’ve ever bought furniture at a store, you’ll know they often charge you up to $250 just for delivery! So this is another way you save money.
So those are 3 benefits to buying furniture for your home online. If you want to save money and get access to a wider selection, then you may want to try it.
Whether you’re in the market for upscale bar stools, glass-and-cherry dining room table, a modern loft-style couch, ergonomic office chair or a customized wrought-iron bed, you can find what you’re looking for and make your home into your own personal oasis.
