With the advancement in technology, the way we purchase products has changed massively. We’re now able to buy almost anything online, which means we can even buy beds without ever leaving our own home. While this is great and so simple, we do have some expert advice to make the process the best it can be.
Request Colour Samples
The way our monitors display colour can always slightly vary, which means sometimes a product may appear a little different than how the colours actually look. If you’re buying an upholstered bed, we suggest requesting fabric sample of the colours you’re interested in. This means you can see the colour in person and check it matches your furniture. If you are looking to buy a wooden bed frame, then requesting a stained wood sample is also advised to get a feel for how it looks once in the lighting of your bedroom.
Important To Remember
As you are only seeing an image, and not the actual product, it may be edited for the website. This may make the product look high quality or better built than it actually is. See what others are saying to check you’ll get exactly what you’re ordering.
If you’re purchasing online, it can be can often mean that the business you are using doesn’t have a physical showroom. If this is the case, then we always recommend doing your research on this company. Check what people are saying about their dispatch times and whether the products are as described.
When Buying A Mattress
If you’re buying a mattress online, then we do suggest, where possible, test the different firmnesses in a store. These play a huge part in your comfort during sleep, so it’s incredibly important that the correct one is bought.
Buying online is certainly so simple, however it’s worth noting that it’s important to be wary. Only enter your card details in websites you absolutely trust (and again, reviews can help with this). You should also check the website is secure (https) when checking out, as this will help ensure your details are safe.
