Whether you need one piece of furniture or a whole house full, there are a variety of options. Consider these three the next time you go furniture shopping.

1. On-Line Furniture Stores

The main benefit of shopping for furniture at an on-line furniture store California is that you aren’t limited to the selection of items on the showroom floor at your local furniture stores. Some stores also offer customization options and discounted prices. The downside is that you don’t get the chance to see and try out your furniture in person. If you order furniture online and the item doesn’t look like you thought it would or isn’t as comfortable as you hoped it would be, returning it can be a hassle. You can avoid this issue by ordering online from a store that also has retail locations in your area, where you may be able to try out the furniture in person or return the item to your local store.

2. Local Furniture Stores

The best thing about buying from a local furniture store is that you can see what you are buying, feel the fabric and get an idea of the comfort level before you make a purchase. This decreases the chances that you will want to return an item. The downside is that you are limited to the selection at the local store and prices may be higher. 

3. Secondhand Sales

If you are looking to save some money, you can sometimes find quality items on the secondhand market. Local consignment stores, garage sales and sites such as Craigslist, are good places to look for used furniture. The downside is that you usually can’t return purchases and items may be damaged or have hidden issues, such as mold or bedbugs

If you are in the market for some new furniture, one of these three options may be right for you. Consider whether you value cost-savings, selection or convenience more when making your choice.
