Current projections suggest that for the November-December period this year, total online sales revenues will be up more than 43% on last year. The eventual takeover of ecommerce as the new norm was long-predicted, but has been accelerated wildly by the COVID-19 crisis.
Increasingly, shoppers are proactively limiting the frequency with which they visit physical stores, or purchase products by conventional means. Even when it comes to relatively major purchases like new kitchens, more people than ever before are placing their orders online.
A radical shift from the conventional way of doing things, but one that can nonetheless bring a variety of benefits for buyers who want to avoid the shops.
Why Buy Your Kitchen Online?
Browsing the available options and buying a new kitchen online may seem unusual – perhaps even slightly daunting. Nevertheless, switching to ecommerce channels when shopping for a kitchen could prove advantageous as you can view a wide range of options and really take your time to find the right colour, finish and type of kitchen units that suit your taste and budget. And what’s more there’s no pushy sales person trying to get you to spend more!
Advantages of online kitchen stores
- Buying online directly from the manufacturer cuts out the middleman, which in turn results in significantly lower prices.
- Specialist sellers who operate exclusively online have reduced overheads and operational costs, resulting in further savings for the customer.
- Shopping online simplifies the process of browsing an extensive range of options to find your perfect kitchen.
- While the impact of COVID-19 continues to be felt, shopping online eliminates the need for risky in-person showroom visits.
- Even where in-store purchase options are available, you’ll often find special deals and discounts on offer exclusively for online customers.
Just a few of the reasons why buying a kitchen online can offer you a great way to get a brand new kitchen at an affordable cost.
What You Need to Be Aware of When Buying Your Kitchen Online
For example, it will be entirely up to you to take accurate measurements and determine which units, appliances and fixtures are appropriate. It’s also essential to factor in the reputation of the seller, which will be reflected in the quality of the products they provide.
If the option of self-installation is available, it could save you a small fortune on the overall costs of your new kitchen. As could forgoing a major or complete overhaul of your kitchen, instead simply replacing your cabinet doors and other hardware for a refreshed aesthetic.
Here at Kitchen Warehouse, you can buy your kitchen online and it’s delivered in a flat pack, so you can choose whether you wish to install yourself if you are a little handy with a screwdriver, or would prefer to use a professional to undertake your kitchen installation.
Shipping costs, warranties and all general terms and conditions should also be taken into account, prior to placing your order. If in doubt, submit your questions and concerns directly to the seller’s customer support team, or arrange a telephone consultation to discuss how the process works.
