As everywhere in the world, the internet starts to take quite a big stake especially when it comes to businesses and retail activity. When it comes to furniture shopping too, the internet has a growing number of opportunities. So let's see where we go, when we are in need of
furniture shopping information in Dubai.
Dubai is a huge city yet according to several new residents its variety of furniture stores is not as high as it should be. Although Dubai furniture stores are just on their way to enter the world of E-commerce expats are slowly persuading each other that internet is the future of furniture shopping also in Dubai. Of course this doesn't strictly mean e-commerce so let's see some of the possibilities:
1.) Asking for furniture shopping advice in Dubai
There are several expat forums which contain nonstop questions and answers on the main " how to" and "what to" questions. The biggest of these forums are specifically for the US, for the British and for the French members. The members of other nations can of course also enter these forums to ask for handy advices on the shopping of basically anything ranging from furniture till cars, flats but also sharing opinions on what to do in Dubai or where to go. These forums are pretty fun to be, you can even make friends on these sites of find classifieds where people sell out their furniture due to quick moving out.
2.) The furniture shop websites
The next best thing is to look up Dubai furniture stores and their addresses. Of course all the bigger furniture stores are represented in Dubai and on their websites you can clearly see the variety and type of furniture they are to offer. Online furniture sites in Dubai do not always put the price. In Dubai it's not really fashionable to include the prices as much as in the Western countries and also because of the local culture of price-making so expect that in this case you will need to go personally to find an attractive price and good furniture of course to pass with. Many furniture shops can be found either in or around a shopping mall or a metro station which makes shopping or looking around all the easier.
3.) The selling sites
The selling sites of Dubai mostly include those sites which include the local classifieds with photos. There are sites such as Dubizzle where you can find good and cheap furniture so you can later on arrange a meeting to take a look at them. Online furniture buying is still not an option in Dubai in this way. Many people though get their furniture online from the US or UK and get them delivered in Dubai. This is not a bad method yet it means an unnecessarily high cost along with the service.
So, these are the main options when it comes to furniture shopping in Dubai. The actual quality, type or style and quantity of furniture to be bought are all up to you. Either ask about furniture shopping advices or look for forums the internet is always a good source to start the search.
