In our fast paced lives, we have been moving more and more towards making purchases online. This is also becoming a trend in purchasing larger household items such as furniture.
Here’s a list of 5 websites to check out when you’re thinking about buying furniture online. This list takes into consideration budget, selection, design and site navigation. All sites listed include shipping options.
IKEA is many peoples “go to” websites for home furnishings, especially for homes that are smaller and compact. It has products that are unique with respect to design and are very “easy” on the wallet. They have a user-friendly website that is geared for the customer and offers many services such as delivery, assembly and installation services.
Bouclair has a large selection of many different styles. Their buyers are constantly travelling the globe in order to make sure they have exciting new products for consumers every week. Their furniture pieces are fun and it’s completely budget friendly. The quality is quite good with a very “high end” feel. One can furnish a big home or be able to find pieces for a smaller unit as well. The website is simple to use and they have great shipping options.
Walmart made this list because it is known for being very budget friendly and carries close to 100,000 different products including home decor and electronics. Although Walmart is more budget focused, the quality and design are quite acceptable. The selection is more limited than the sites provided above, however, they have enough selection for ample choices. The site is very easy to navigate and they have good shipping options.
