I posted this as a response to an OP on another thread, but I'm posting it here in case anyone else can benefit.

I created a full home makeover on AliExpress. (btw. these will be posted on my site, so don't order these items if you want to be the "only one" with it. I think other people will grab these- lol). I will keep adding more products on my site as well.

If you want anything specific, feel free to post and I'll try to help you out.

I'm decorating all my own rooms now on Ali (as I dream about my new house- that has not been purchased yet. lol)

Curious why spend these prices on ali? I always assumed it was to get things really cheap. You can get those prices on wayfair and overstock too. Aren't you worried about the quality and it not lasting long? I like your style and taste.

The beds are made in the US, so I'm not worried about the quality.
The lighting I trust, as I've ordered many fixtures from them and all are still working perfectly fine.
In general, I find that these prices are much cheaper than any local store and the pieces look just as good.

Was just about to ask this. I basically paid same price for most of these things on wayfair or walmart and got it delivered in 2 days.

I love your style
I agree with other posters about pricing
Can I make a suggestion/request? Can you style "affordable" rooms maybe with furniture from wayfair and decor/accessories from ali
I personally would love that
Im looking to hire someone to do that
I dont want to spend a ton but ali can be a headache

FWIW, these items are made in China although it is claimed that they ship from the US. Most likely they have a US distribution center which receive large quantities rather than having individual items shipped from China since shipping of one item would be expensive.

Being made in China isn't necessarily bad since most of the items sold on Wayfair or other inexpensive places is made in China. The only furniture still made in the US is quite expensive and of a significantly higher quality.

The reason why it is better to deal with Wayfair for items is because you are dealing with a large US company and if there are issues it will be easier to deal with them.

Your design choices are aesthetically lovely but do not buy a no-name faucet as you don't know what it is made from or the quality. If you want to save money, get a Delta or Moen which are relatively inexpensive and guaranteed for life.

Also I would be hesitant to buy any electrical items direct from China because they aren't UL certified and could be dangerous. Target has inexpensive lamps which would be a safer choice and be about the same price point.

Is this true? I thought buying from Wayfair was quite risky. They have many of the same vendors Ali does and they don’t seem to stand up for their customers the way Amazon does. I have the same hesitations buying from Wayfair that I do buying from Ali.

I wouldn't buy any large item mail order for starters because returning something large is very difficult. You have to package it up and then get it to the shipping place etc.

I wouldn't buy anything large from amazon either because of the logistics of returning it and I buy lots of stuff from amazon - but nothing larger than a microwave oven so that it is feasible for me to repack it for shipping. Think about repacking a bed or a couch. LOL Also - FWIW - if I buy a microwave or other small appliance from amazon I am relying on the reputation of the manufacturer - e.g. Cuisinart or Panasonic or Bissel etc.

However theoretically if you purchase from Wayfair there is a US based corporate entity that you can attempt to put pressure on versus a completely foreign entity so as between aliexpress or Wayfair, I would go with Wayfair - although I wouldn't buy a large item from either.

I have bought from aliexpress for certain small items - essentially stuff that I am okay with if I lose everything because they are garbage.

Stick to IKEA or Target for inexpensive furniture

I've heard that Wayfair is pretty good with returns and customer service. I hesitate to buy from Ali, but not from Wayfair.

Some years ago I bought an upholstered bedframe from Wayfair and at first I thought there was an issue of it being the wrong size. Customer service was actually helpful and as it turned out I was not reading the packaging correctly.

Instead of bringing the package to my apartment they left it in the lobby of my building. The customer service representative gave me quite a sizable credit - about $75 - and I paid one of the workers in my building to shlep it up for me so we were both happy as he got paid a lot of money to bring up a few packages. LOL

However I realized that if I actually had to arrange for the item to be shipped back - especially if I had opened the boxes - it would have been extremely difficult.

I am a wayfair addict here, I bought literally all my furniture there for my new home and one of the main reasons is that they have amazing customer service and even refunded high ticket items above 1k fully for minor issues and let me keep the products etc.

Amazon nowadays is overrun with Ali sellers so I don’t trust them unless it’s a brand name I trust. I’ve had great experiences with wayfair.

With some Amazon furniture I believe they will come to your house and repackage it if you don't like it. Look into that.

What's the most expensive item they've refunded? I've been scared to order from there because of some items I like are high ticket. I'm making myself a wishlist for when I can afford it in case I don't find elsewhere.

The difference is I think OP started this thread because her link seem to be affiliate links. It pays for her to share.
