Furniture Stores in Germany

Furniture yellowIf you are about to visit a furniture store in Germany then better try to plan in some hours in your schedule. Especially on weekends buying furniture can be a real pain. Furniture stores are built to maximize revenue and not to be as convenient as possible for the customer.
That being said sometimes you still can’t get around it and you have to bite the bullet. Hopefully you own a car and get there without relying on public transport as most furniture stores are located in the suburbs of German cities.

Home24

The best alternative to driving to a furniture store and losing hours of time searching for furniture you like is Home24. The biggest online furniture store in Germany and with a broad selection of furniture Home24 is the place to shop for furniture online.

The advantages of shopping furniture online include:

  • save a lot of time by ordering from home
  • save a lot of hassle by letting others deliver your furniture to your place
  • more time to chose your favorite furniture as no salesman is pushing you into buying something that in the end you don’t even like
  • great online deals

Have we already mentioned the fact that Home24 offers free delivery and return in case you don’t like what you bought? So there is really no reason anymore why you should not try to buy your furniture online next time and try out Home24.

IKEA

Worldwide people love IKEA for their cheap furniture and of course their famous hot dogs. In Germany IKEA has at least one store in each major city. If you don’t own a car you can always hire a ‘Möbel-Taxi‘ (a taxi that is specialized in transportation of furniture) or pay some Euros extra and get delivery from IKEA to your home.

Recently IKEA also started selling furniture via their online shop, but still most of the furniture is only available in the stores.

Fashion for Home

Another online furniture store in Germany and similar to Home24 with a huge selection of furniture and accessories for you dream home online. Fashion For Home might be a bit cheaper than Home24 sometimes, but make sure to check for the delivery period.

Sometimes if you buy certain things they are made to order and can take up to 2 months of delivery time. But on the upside you can find great deals online and delivery is included in the price. Check out the Fashion for Home website for all their furniture online.
