10 Questions to Ask Your Furniture Salesperson

With today's technological advancements, accessing information has become convenient, allowing individuals to retrieve it anytime and anywhere. This accessibility likely contributes to consumers being highly knowledgeable about the products they intend to purchase, particularly significant investments like furniture. Given the substantial cost associated with furniture purchases, many individuals prefer to conduct thorough product research beforehand, often seeking assistance from furniture salespersons only after completing this preliminary investigation.

 It’s important to remember that a furniture salesperson is not an enemy, but can be your greatest asset when looking for the perfect pieces. If you ask the right questions, he or she can lead you to the furniture that is the right style, price, and comfort level. 


There are several factors to consider when you are asking questions. For example, it’s essential for you to know the materials used in building the product you are looking at. A good indicator that a sofa is good quality is when the material used to build its frame is high-quality wood. By asking about the material, you can assess for yourself the durability of the product as well as its price.  


Cost is a significant consideration for many individuals. Don't hesitate to inquire with your sales representative about products within your specified price range. Clear communication enables them to assist you effectively, ultimately saving you time and alleviating frustration. Below are ten questions to streamline and enhance your furniture purchasing experience, making it more seamless, enjoyable, and informative.

  1. What materials are used in the construction? (Consider durable options like wood.)
  2. Do you offer alternatives within this price range? (Feel free to mix and match pieces that complement each other, accommodating your preferences.)
  3. Are there customization options available? (Personalize with different fabrics and colors.)
  4. How should the fabric be cleaned? (Select fabric based on lifestyle, considering factors like children or pets.)
  5. Are the materials colorfast? (Ensure fabric quality by verifying it doesn't fade quickly or damage clothing.)
  6. Is this item available in different sizes? (Recognizing diverse consumer needs, many styles offer multiple size options.)
  7. Are the sides and arms cushioned? (Especially important for families or busy households, cushioning enhances comfort and durability.)
  8. Does the fabric feature locked stitching? (Prevent future unraveling and ensure longevity.)
  9. What are the delivery options for this item? (Rest assured with safe and insured delivery services provided by furniture stores.)
  10. What forms of payment do you accept? (While most retailers are flexible, it's essential to confirm accepted payment methods to avoid inconvenience.)

 With the multitude of colors, styles, sizes, and other variations available in furniture pieces today, the decision-making process can be overwhelming. Hence, it's crucial not to hesitate in asking questions, particularly when aiming for a long-term investment in your furniture.
