4 Factors To Consider When Saving for New Bedroom Sets
Are you working on saving up for a new bedroom set to compliment your new home or remodeled bedroom? It can be difficult to know how much you should spend on a new bedroom set. Everyone knows that heavy, durable furniture is the most expensive. Since bedroom furniture is used so heavily on a daily basis, it is even more important that it be sturdy.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a set amount you can expect to pay for a new bedroom set. You get a much better deal when you get your bedroom sets online, but you’ll need to take a few things into consideration.
Size of your room
A lot of people overestimate the size of their bedroom. Before banking on a particular bedroom set, make sure that it will fit in your space. The easiest way to do this is to create cardboard cutouts of the bedroom furniture using the measurements provided in the specifications of the bedroom set description. Lay them out in different arrangements to make sure you’re comfortable with the amount of leftover space.
Pieces in the bedroom set
Both brick-and-mortar and online furniture stores often extend discounts when you buy a minimum number of pieces or the complete bedroom set. That doesn’t mean you should buy pieces you don’t need. Keep in mind that you only have so much space, but if you have some other rooms to use optional pieces like storage benches it could be worth the savings.
Quality of the bedroom sets
You can buy bedroom furniture at some amazingly low prices if you are willing to accept lower quality, and sometimes that’s okay. If you have a child or teen you are buying for, you already know the furniture will no longer be in use within less than a decade. On the other hand, if you are buying bedroom furniture that you expect to use for some time, you should definitely pay more for higher quality and durability.
Furniture that arrives assembly required
These days most furniture arrives in at least a few pieces, unless you buy it from your local furniture store. (In which case they receive the item in pieces and assemble it for you.) The more assembly you are willing to do, the cheaper the price. However, the more pieces you have to assemble, and the more tools you need to complete the project, could be more than you bargained for. There is a lot of room for error, and assembling bedroom furniture incorrectly can cause it to break, perhaps causing injury.
All in all, you can expect to spend anywhere from $1500 to $6000 on a complete bedroom set. This is a large range, but you can see that there are many things that can affect the price. To get the best deals, shop online where all pieces are available from the same furniture retailer.
