FEATURES OF CREATING A FURNITURE SITE
First of all, consider what factors need to pay special attention in order to highlight your project among the rest.

COLORS ATTRACTING TARGET AUDIENCE
In the minds of people, the viewed web resource will, as a rule, be associated directly with the output. Why not increase this effect and add in parallel even more consumer confidence in your company?

If you are selling wood furniture, use shades of brown and an image of woody textures. For metal products, choose shades of white and silver, you can even add some shiny details, but do not overdo it, otherwise it will produce a daunting effect.

When creating a furniture design site, you must be sure that the color palette corresponds to its content and purpose everywhere – this will be a confirmation of your painstaking and conscientious attitude to work.

EASY MAKEUP
Simple design
The structure of the web resource in this niche is developed like any other commercial project or online store. It should have the following components:

Header (or header) – a block at the top of the page. Here are links to the most important sections: “Catalog of Goods”, “Collections”, “About Us”, “Contacts” (see the article on the effective design of the website header).
Content is represented by a catalog of products, banners with special offers, articles with product descriptions, customer reviews, etc.
Footer – a block at the bottom of the screen where additional useful information is placed for visitors.
MEDIA CONTENT
Do not forget that the presence of informative media content is a prerequisite for successful online trading – it makes the furniture site more personalized and attractive to buyers. Photos must be of high quality, taken from different angles and with the ability to zoom.

Each photo should have a corresponding file name and an alternative text with a brief description of the image (gives an additional effect in search engine optimization). You can also use 3D images of interiors containing interactive elements with links to product pages.
