Buying furniture in Dortmund

It's always wise to opt for taking the car when furniture shopping in Dortmund. The reason for this is that furniture stores aren't typically located centrally, but instead away from the city center and thus, driving is a much better and easier option than deciding to take public transportation. If you've been in Dortmund for a while, you can certainly attest to the fact that the weather in the winter can indeed be rather harsh. I don't know about you, but waiting in the cold for a bus only to take another bus and then a train isn't something that sounds like a lot of fun. If you're furniture shopping, or just trying to get an idea of what's out there in the furniture world during the summer month's, by all means go for it. Why? Because you'll want to get in as much sun as possible before the winter comes storming in. However, if you're looking at picking up a few things while you're out, then you will, more than likely be in need of a vehicle. After all, walking with a couch on your shoulders won't only be difficult, it will be impossible.


Dortmund has some great furniture store options.

Buying furniture in Darmstadt

It's not unusual to fall in love with furniture. In fact, I'm sure it happens to each of us, at least once in our lives. Having moved all the way from your native country to Darmstadt, you're probably looking for this feeling once again. You're looking for that wow factor when it comes to furniture. You want your home to be as comfortable and as homey as possible as this will be one of the indicators as to whether or not your time in Darmstadt was a good one. Planning your move is a necessity, as is planning your furniture seeking adventure. Darmstadt does have some exceptional locations where one can find all the need to furnish their homes. A few of these stores will be mentioned a little later. People often refer to the furnishing process in not only Darmstadt, but Germany as a difficult, and in some cases, a horrendous one. This is by no means a reflection on the products that are offered, but instead, the time it takes to receive these products. What this will mean for you, is that once you've found that 'wow' piece of furniture, you'll want to ensure that it gets to you before it loses its appeal-ability. Waiting for a long time for your furniture can indeed be very frustrating, especially in the case that you really are in need of the furniture you have ordered. To avoid this, it's important that you do your research before you relocate, finding out from different locations, what their delivery times are like. Having done so, you'll be able to determine what furniture store may work best for you, or if you'll need to pre order your items in order to have them at your location in time.

Buying furniture in Cologne

Is it really necessary to have a German native speaker accompany you to a furniture store in Cologne? In some cases it is. One of the things that is great about Germany for English speakers, is that a lot of people really do speak at least a little English. However, this does not mean that everyone speaks English, it's kind of a luck game really. When you're heading to a furniture store with the intent to buy, rather than to window shop, you really should bring a colleague or friend along who speaks German. Yes, it may just be furniture that you're looking at and you don't need a representative to tell you what looks good, because you've got your own styles and your own vision of what pieces you want in your home. However, when it comes to purchasing, there are a few things that you may need to know.


In terms of financing, having a German friend go over those German terms with the representative and then translate them to you will be very beneficial. When doing things on your own, especially if your German isn't very good, you'll get the smiles and the nodding, and translate based on body language. Which, when it comes to a sales rep, you don't want to go by body language for a financial transaction because they've got chirpy and jolly down even when selling you a deal that's not 00% great.


Then of course, there are the dreaded shipping times. Translating body language may lead you to believe that your furniture will be in your new apartment before you've even left the store when in actuality, you may have to wait months for it to be delivered.



Bring a friend or bring a dictionary, either way, you'll need the German language with you when furniture shopping.

Buying furniture in Bremen

One of the most frustrating things when buying furniture in Bremen, is the waiting times that you'll have to endure. It can be quite a downer, going into a store and being ready to purchase on the spot, only to hear that you'll indeed have to wait 2 weeks to have your items delivered. 2 weeks! Yes, it startles many. However, it does indeed make sense considering many of the furniture stores carry items that aren't made in Germany and thus, need to be shipped from their suppliers to you. The best way to avoid this, is by preparing for the waiting period to begin with.


In the case that your apartment is empty and you're a few weeks away from having to call the floor your bed, you may want to take a look at renting furniture for the short term. It's really saved a lot of people from having to spend mounts of cash on buying furniture that they don't want just because they really do need to have their home furnished, immediately. It's affordable, delivery is typically free and when you're ordered furniture arrives, most furniture rental companies will pick their products back up free of charge. This saves you time, money and a lot of sleepless nights.
