Online Furniture Shopping Tips to Help You Avoid Costly Mistakes
Image Color Differences
Lighting, styling, placement and camera angel play a huge role in marketing any product you shop for online. However, online furniture image colors can be off, if even slightly. This is especially true if you buy a patterned sofa or furniture with bright colors.
So, prepare to see slight changes in the fabric color once the furniture is delivered to your home. One way to avoid this is to ask the vendor if they will send fabric samples to you before you make a decision.
Take Good Measurements
Measuring the area where the furniture will sit in your home is very important. But what people sometimes forget to measure in advance are the doorways or stairways. For instance, what if your new sofa won’t fit through a door? Or, your staircase might be too narrow for your new king size bed to navigate through successfully.
