Online shopping in Malta is skyrocketing in popularity, and it’s no longer just limited to takeaways and small goods; today, you can from the comfort of your phone or laptop easily order a wall-unit or wardrobe, have it delivered to your doorstep, and in many cases, assembled. Of course, it doesn’t need to be said: the emergence (and re-emergence) of Covid-19 has also accelerated our shift towards online shopping.
At House.mt, we believe that getting to see the furniture you want first-hand is very important, especially when it comes to house furniture that you expect to last and will be using continuously, such as kitchen cabinets, flooring, chairs, your sofa, and your bed. On the other hand, there’s a lot you can confidently acquire through online stores, especially if said online stores source their products from brands that have gained global legitimacy for the quality of their goods and/or value they offer.
In this article, we go over 11 Maltese furniture and furnishings stores which now allow you to not only explore their catalogue online, but will also give you the option to pay for products electronically and then have them delivered to the address you choose. The process of ordering furniture online and getting it delivered is fairly straightforward: Browse, customise, add the items you want in your shopping cart, register an account (which usually only takes a couple of minutes), and order away or ‘check-out’.
There’s a number of non-local online stores that will deliver furniture to Malta, but for this article, we’re focusing on stores and companies that operate in Malta. There’s a number of advantages to staying local, such as assembly, easy communication, and guaranteed after-sales service.
