  • Tips for Buying a Sofa Online

    Buying a Couch Online You’re probably used to buying plenty of things online, from clothing to groceries. But if you’re like many of us, buying a sofa online can seem risky. It’s one of the largest and most expensive pieces of furniture in your home, and you can’t exactly drop it in the mailbox to return if it doesn’t work out. Armed with a few good tips, however, buying a sofa online can be easy and stress-free.

    Reviewers are your best friends

    Don’t just go to the manufacturer’s website and look at the professionally photographed, flatteringly lit pictures. Read customers’ and bloggers’ honest reviews, and try to find photos of the sofa taken by a non-professional in an actual home.

    Figure out dimensions

    Will the sofa be able to turn a tight corner when the movers bring it to your house? Will it even fit through the front door? Don’t just eyeball door frames and hallways—take meticulous measurements before ordering the sofa.

    Know the return policy backwards and forwards

    Many retailers have strict policies for returns and exchanges, and some may even require you to ship an unwanted piece back at your own expense, not to mention slap you with a hefty restocking fee. Learn more about a company’s policies before your purchase.
