You might be thinking of updating your bedroom furniture, and investing in a new bed. But with so many choices available, do you head to a bed store or buy online? Browsing online means you can find the best bed sale, in the best bed shop. You often have access to exclusive online discounts and products that you won’t find in store. Buying online has become one of the safest ways to pay. Not only is it safe, but it’s the most convenient way to shop. The internet doesn’t close at 5.30pm, in fact it never closes. But does this emerging online shopping trend mean we’re losing that human touch?
Bedroom furniture online
In the UK, 39% of people say they shop online every week, and interestingly people are using their mobiles and tablets to browse and buy as well. The ability to browse before you buy is a fantastic way of finding the right beds sale, bed or bedroom furniture for you. Browsing online means you can take your time to find the best bed shop. It allows you to research styles, prices and find your dream bed or bedroom furniture. You might think that purchasing a larger item such as a bed or bedroom furniture needs to happen in store. But we’re finding that more and more people are buying online instead. Our metal beds, such as the Oliver bed, are popular choices online, along with our contemporary wooden beds.
We’ve even made it easier than ever to buy upholstered beds online. Our standard upholstered beds come in a range of fabric choices, and the best part is you can order a free fabric sample to touch and feel in your own home. Once you’re happy with your choice, simply select your fabric choice online, and add to your basket. It saves you the hassle of going in store, but still allows you to make sure it’s the right choice for you.
Visit your local bed store
But when it comes to really indulging in a bespoke item, such as a bespoke upholstered bed, nothing beats going into a bed store to touch and feel it yourself. We encourage everyone to chat to our sleep experts to find the perfect fabric for you. With over 2,000 to choose from, it’s a good idea to make sure you’re completely happy with your choice. According to PWC’s latest survey, 73% people would go in store to see, touch and try the merchandise. So we think buying online is great – it’s convenient and reliable, but we know how important it is to absolutely love your purchase. We recommend browsing online to find your dream bed and bedroom furniture, and then visiting a bed shop to really get to know your choice. It’s because of this that we’ve created a helpful store locator page. It allows you to quickly and easily find your nearest bed store. Give your local bed shop a call to make an appointment, or just pop in for a chat. Our sleep experts are always ready to help with any query you have. Often our bed stores will have special lines that have been discounted, and these will show on their store pages on the locator page.
The right bedroom furniture
We’re also seeing a trend of people visiting stores to touch and feel the products, chat to our sleep experts and get a really good idea of what they like, before heading online to make the final purchase. This is the perfect way of making sure you love your bedroom furniture or bed and still having the convenience of going home for a cup of tea and then purchasing online.
Choosing the right bedroom furniture, chest of drawers or wardrobe is just as important as buying the right bed. That’s why we’ve made sure all our photography is as good as it can be, showing you all the little details and colours. It’s quicker, easier and reliable when buying online – you can immediately see what stock is available and how long delivery will be. Our lives are busy enough as it is, without trying to find time to hit the shops. But if you want to see your bedroom furniture in person, just head to your local store.

So how do you make the decision to buy online? You need to feel safe, secure and reassured about your purchase. We’ve made sure all our images, dimensions and descriptions are accurate; making it easier for you to choose.
