Hit or Miss

Monday, February 4, 2013

My mom and I were talking the other day about the half bath and I was telling her about all the things we recently ordered online for the room (faucet, sink, light fixture, and the table/vanity legs). She was curious about how we know what to order online. Easy answer: we don’t. We sometimes order things and they don’t work out. For instance, we just ordered a light fixture for the half bath – total miss. Once the fixture arrived, we held it up in the space and quickly realized it was way too big. Then we ordered a faucet. I must admit the faucet is beautiful, but once again, it appears to be too big for the vanity. We won’t know for sure until the sink arrives next week. On the other hand, the vanity legs ended up being just right for what we had in mind!

We typically order online for two main reasons. One, we can’t find what we want in the local stores so we go online for a greater selection. Two, we can find a better price online.   Of course, when ordering online its important to check the return policy so you don’t end up paying a restocking fee or losing a lot of money in shipping fees should it not work quite like you expected.

Ordering online is pretty much the same as buying from a local store since you won't know whether or not its going to work until you try it out in the space.  Ultimately, buying things for your house can be a hit or miss no matter where its from (so be sure to save the receipt!)
