How to Prepare for Online Furniture Shopping

The first and perhaps most important step to online furniture shopping is to measure your room and specific spaces you want furniture pieces to go in. This will let you know what sizes to look for in your online shopping spree. Make sure to measure any doorways that your furniture will need to fit through.

Next, collect information. Gather important details like fabrics and paint colors that already exist within your home, and use them to search for inspiration both within the Living Spaces site and through outside outlets like Pinterest and Instagram.

Finally, create a wish list of all the items that interest you – and collect them all in one place by clicking “Like” on your favorite Living Spaces pieces.

Once you have an idea of the pieces you want to get, order color swatches online to see the true hue before making a purchase, or tape out the dimensions of the pieces in your room to get an idea of how everything is going to look.
