How to Shop for Furniture Online HOME | BLOG

Choosing new furniture for your home can quickly transform from a fun, exciting process into an absolute nightmare, especially if you have no idea how to go about it. When shopping online, merely looking at the pictures and images on the website isn’t enough; there are many other essential things you need to consider in order to choose the right furniture for your room. 

Although furniture shopping is one of those things that you need to do in-person by physically going to the store, many people often prefer doing it online to save time, energy and a great deal of confusion. There’s nothing wrong with shopping online, but it does require extra caution and research from your end.

If you belong to the latter category of people, here are a few helpful tips on how to shop for furniture online without any inconvenience or hassle.

Go Through the Website Thoroughly

The best kind of online websites for furniture are those that are visually appealing, have great images, and also mention a little history about the brand or the company.

Make sure to go through a lot of the website and read their ‘About’ section because that’s where you will find all the necessary information that you need to know about the company.

Excellent Image Quality

Having a ton of furniture images on the website is one thing, but ensuring great quality and the picture angles is a whole other thing.

Often times, online furniture pages upload photos that are of poor quality and aren’t very clear in terms of colour and appearance, for instance. So, if a sofa seems to be a nice charcoal grey colour on the website, the chances are that it’s actually a different shade of grey, completely different from what was displayed online. You will find out the hard way when it arrives to your home.

We understand going by online images alone is very hard, so please call us on 1800 667 345 or email us at to request additional images of the pieces on display for you to get a better idea of the look and quality, this will guarantee that what you see online is exactly what you will receive in delivery.

Check Reviews

Reviews mean a great deal when you are shopping for furniture online. These are basically experiences, opinions, and feedback shared by other customers that have shopped from that particular website.

Most websites or pages have a separate review section where customers and buyers can leave their comments and share their overall experience.
Read all those reviews in order to ensure that it’s a credible place for buying furniture and to also gain insight about things like the quality, value for money, durability, and usability, to name a few.

Nordik's website allows product reviews as well as questions and answers for every single individual product, this will help you with decision making as you can read all the feedback as well as view customers' own images.

Customer Service

When shopping online for furniture, you are likely to have many questions about a certain table or a sofa that you liked on the website. Good customer service is what you need to make the right decision. You should be able to call on the number given on the website to get in touch with the staff, ask all your questions, remove any confusion that you might have, and get all the assurance you need from them to buy their furniture.

Warranty and Delivery Duration

These two are probably two of the most essential factors when you are shopping for furniture online. A few months of warranty is essential when buying furniture in case of manufacturing faults and defects. Secondly, the delivery duration is also important to consider, especially if you are short on time and need the furniture urgently.

Nordik offers 24 months warranty on all pieces with life long warranty on solid American oak legs for our soft seating range.

Key Takeaways

Shopping for furniture online can be made quite easy if you follow the above-mentioned tips. Many people end up with terrible online experiences when they don’t go about it the right way, so make sure that you consider essential factors other than just the images and photos on the website.
