8 Benefits of Furniture Shopping Online

Looking for the best online furniture stores? Australia, you’ve come to the right place. 

The rise of the best online furniture stores is threatening an age-old species. You probably grew up with some planted around your neighbourhood, lining the main streets. 

We’re talking about your brick-and-mortar furniture stores.

“Don’t they sell the same thing, but?”

Well, sometimes yes – but sometimes no. Plus, it’s what you get from the shopping experience—from the perks to the services to the actual product—that makes them apples and oranges. And by oranges, we mean brussels sprouts. 

The way furniture is made has changed. And so is the way it’s sold. So if you’re on the lookout for some new furniture this year, here are 7 reasons why you should reconsider googling ‘furniture stores near me’ and shop online instead. When it comes to the best online furniture stores, Australia is lucky to call a particular one theirs. Koala, of course! 

CBF factor

You don’t have to change into going-out clothes, drive anywhere or brush your hair (or teeth for that matter). Instead of dragging yourself from store to store, you can just surf from site to site. 

Being able to conveniently purchase your entire living room setup or a certain famously comfy mattress in your undies at home? Mate, that’s the definition of comfortable living.

Reviews and testimonies

Let’s say you find a mattress that you like at one of your typical bedroom furniture stores, but you want some of that sweet sweet social proof. You want to know what other people think of it. Do you think the mattress guy is going to tell you the truth?

Reviews and testimonies provide shoppers with more comfort than the piece of furniture itself.

Knowing that you’re buying a mattress with over 25,000 5-star reviews, or a sofa bed that’s the highest rated sofa bed on goes a long way in helping you sleep soundly with your choices. How to know you’re dealing with one of the best online furniture stores? Australia, look to the reviews! 

Is it cheaper to buy furniture online or in-store?

We’re sorry to be trite, but the answer is: it depends. If you’re comparing Kmart furniture to ethically, sustainably made furniture, there’s going to be a discrepancy between prices. But when comparing the same quality of product, online tends to be cheaper given the reduced overheads the online furniture stores acquire through having no physical presence. 

More variety

Unless there’s a retail store in Australia that’s got every available item of furniture in it, you can’t possibly see and compare all your options in one go. Browsing online furniture stores helps you make informed decisions and reduces the risk of FOMO.

Fast and flexible delivery

Instead of figuring out how you’re going to fit a 5-seater into a 3-door, let the online furniture stores do the heavy lifting. We offer fast and flexible delivery so you can stress less. 

Avoid the crowds

This one’s more relevant now than ever. Apart from maintaining proper social distancing, if you shop online, you not only avoid the crowds, but if there’s a sale or limited stock, you have a good chance of beating them.

No pressure to buy

If you don’t wanna, you don’t hafta. It’s a lot easier and less stressful to walk away from an online shopping cart than it is a commission-hungry sales person who’s spent the last 20 minutes buttering you up.

Even If you do buy and end up changing your mind, many online furniture stores offer more than generous return policies, like Koala’s risk-free 120-night trial. That’s 4 months, a third of a year, that you get to test drive your comfy new mattress or sofa.

No more eyeballing

Going back and forth between your room and a showroom with a measuring tape might just be the most excruciating exercise in existence.

The great thing about online furniture stores is that you have all the information you need right there on the screen. If it fits. Great! If it doesn’t, no harm done. We have a 120-night trial on our products, so you can send it on back worry-free. No need for eyeballing measurements. No faffing around.
