I was visiting GreatPricedfurniture.com and spent a few minutes looking over their site and the furnishings that they sell.
The site has 20 major sections that you can easily reach by clicking on the tab of your choice at the top of each page. The sections range from customer care, to a pages listing the online stores best sellers, new arrivals, items that are on sale, to the specific furniture sections – bedroom, children’s, baby furniture, kitchen, living room, dining room, home office, and art. There’s even a section on furniture tips.
The site is well designed, but it doesn’t look like your typical online store which usually has lots of thumbnails of their products within the major sections.
On Greatpricedfurniture.com when you visit a furniture section, take for example the baby furniture section, you are greeted by a few paragraphs describing the type of furniture that the online store sells, below the initial paragraphs you’ll find thumbnail pictures that will take you into sub-sections of the baby furniture section. The sub-sections for this area range from Baby bedroom sets, to changing tables or you could view all of the furniture items at once by clicking the last thumbnail.
I think this online store might be better served to have the sub-section thumbnails either above the descriptive paragraphs for the section or perhaps running along the left or right side of the page. That’s my opinion, but I know that when I’m shopping or browsing online I like to view examples of the products sooner rather than later.
Once you get into each subsection of the site you will find thumbnail photos of the products sold in that section. Once I clicked on Baby bedroom sets I discovered a page that had a photo of each of the baby furniture sets that Greatpricedfurniture sells, and from there I could click on a model that I liked to see a larger picture, read an in depth description of the product and then go on to order the item, or items in this case, at the bottom of the page.
One thing that I really liked about this site, is that once you have picked out an item that you want to possibly purchase or get more information on, if you scroll to the bottom of the page where it lists the prices for the items and variations of each item, a pop up picture of the item comes up when you hover over the link. So if you wanted to get a particular crib, but wanted it in a different color, you could see what it would look like in the color or wood type of your choosing when you hover over the link. A+ for that idea!
The front page has a nice picture of a bedroom set, and then below it there are descriptions of each section of the site, with thumbnails of select furniture items running along the right side of the page. I like that look. On the left side of the front page, a shopper visiting the site will find that they could shop for items by furniture category, manufacturer, or by furniture collections.
It’s a great site, well organized, easy to use, and full of information about the furniture items that they sell, plus it’s easy to find information related to the online store itself as well.
I think it just needs to be brightened up a bit with photos of the items in each main section near the top of the page in order to encourage shoppers to click on the sub-sections.
As for the furniture and furniture collections? It appears that this online store carries high quality furniture items. I love the many styles and lines of furniture that I’ve seen as I’ve browsed the site. The prices are quite reasonable for the quality and craftsmanship of the furniture as well.
I’d visit this site again, and I’ve bookmarked it in case I decided to redecorate sometime in the near future which of course is always a possibility with me since I love redecorating.
If you are shopping for furniture visit Greatpricedfurniture.com, you won’t be disappointed.
