Buying lamps online vs offline

The popularity of e-commerce platforms has made us full of things bought online. Online shopping is popular because it saves time and effort and can easily return and exchange products. The only drawback is that after customer receiving their commodity, they may find that they are different from what they expect. Because online product pictures show them great products instead of the things in their hands.

The purchase of lamps and lanterns requires on-site experience to a large extent, but online shopping is more time-saving and labor-saving than physical stores, and has a complete range. This makes many people very entangled in buying lamps online or offline. We have done the following analysis so that you can make a choice that suits you as soon as possible.


Buy offline

Buying a lamp in a physical store has several great advantages. You can see the real object on the spot and understand the material.

And you can also directly test whether there are problems such as strobe and whether the light is uniform.Some larger home shopping malls also have model rooms with lamps installed. You can see if the lamps match your own decoration style.


  • Disadvantages:

There are still no shopping malls that specialize in lighting fixtures in many cities. Most cities are a stall in home shopping malls, and home furnishing markets in small cities are mostly concentrated in the city center. Finding a physical store can be troublesome. Secondly, the cost of physical stores will be higher than that of online stores, and the price of lamps will be a little higher than that of online stores.

        • How to match styles: Now most people decorate in Scandinavian and modern styles. Both Nordic and classical decoration styles can be matched with chandeliers, and ceiling lamps can also be selected for Nordic styles. For modern-style decoration, you can boldly choose a design without a main lamp, such as the combination of downlights, spotlights and floor lamps.

        • Brand selection: The most basic thing for online shopping is to look for the brand, and the same is true for physical stores. The brand is selected right. It has been half the success. You can choose some brands that have been in the lighting industry for a long time. They have many technologies and old brands. It is very good with the light source that started as a light source.



        You can choose to buy offline or online according to your budget and time cost. While pursuing cost-effectiveness, don't forget that the lamps you buy must conform to the decoration style.
