Q.           Can’t you collect the goods from me?

That is not a problem – if your return is not furniture, sofas, chairs, mirrors, lighting & rugs (all items for which collection is compulsory) we can still make things easy for you and organise a collection. The cost of this can be charged to your account and will deducted from any refund due.  If you would like to proceed with this option, let us know and we will contact you to confirm your courier options and cost of collection.

Q.           What about returning non-standard, customised or special-order products?

Non-standard, customised bespoke, made to order, made to measure or special order products (including but not limited to large furniture items, headboards, sofas or chairs in your own choice of fabric and size), nor cut by the meter wallpaper or fabric or goods that have been confirmed to you as non-standard, customised or special order, cannot be covered by our returns policy, unless faulty. 

We want you to be delighted with your orders from Houseology, so here's some advice from our team to consider:

Before placing an order, check the following:

  • Compatibility with all your other furnishings
  • Fitness for purpose
  • Your dimensions are correct and the product will fit where it is intended
  • The delivery address can receive the product - be sure of access, check dimensions, make sure it fits though all doorways, stairwells and any other access routes necessary.

Please refer to our Measuring Advice & Design Considerations guidance before placing an order.

By placing an order for a non-standard, customised or special-order product with us, you are deemed to have considered all these factors and any others that might affect the order, and accept that you are entirely satisfied that it is the correct product for you. You will not be able to change the order once the item has been entered into production.

When you receive goods that require assembly, prior to installing, it is very important that you check the instructions and ensure that you have all relevant parts listed and that you can fit the product in strict accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. We cannot refund products that have been wrongly fitted or be responsible for any consequences of mis-fitting our products. We strongly recommend that you employ only qualified and experienced joiners and electricians to install our products.

Q.           What happens if my goods arrive damaged or faulty?

In the event that you receive your order in a faulty or damaged condition, including customised products please contact us within 48 hours by email at or phone us on +44 (0)800 599 9720 and we will make the necessary arrangements to collect the damaged/faulty goods.

We will ask you to email a photograph of the damage and complete a short questionnaire as part of our quality assurance checks.

Please note it is critical that you keep all the original packaging and repack the item with care. Our courier will make the collection, and upon inspection at our warehouse, a refund, or replacement sent at our expense, will be arranged.

Q.           Can I order samples?

We have access to free samples for most of our brands. Please contact or call one of our team on +44 (0)800 599 9720 to request a sample.

Q.           What if I need more information about a product?

We have a sales team on hand to help answer any questions you may have about products that are not already shown online.  We can often request lifestyle images from our suppliers and obtain additional measurements, where required. You can reach our team by email at, by phone on +44 (0)800 599 9720 or on Live Chat during our opening times, noted above.

Q.           How do I obtain an international shipping quotation?

Quite often our website will automatically calculate shipping for you. Simply add your desired products to the basket and checkout as normal.  In the event that the website does not display a price for shipping, you will be asked to complete a shipping quotation request form.  Please complete and submit the form with all the requested details.  We will aim to come back to you within 1-2 business days with a price for shipping.  Alternatively, please feel free to contact or team by phone on +44 (0)800 599 9720 or through email at for more information.
