Tips for Purchasing High Quality Furniture for Low Prices

When I moved into my first apartment as an adult, I had no idea how to find good furniture that wasn't expensive. We had a local budget furniture store and a high-end luxury store, and while I didn't like the feel of the items from the budget store, I couldn't afford the prices of the luxury store! Although I was eager to prove my independence, I called my mom and asked for help. She told me that I was looking in the wrong place and led me to another store just outside my city that had quality furniture and great prices. She found great furniture for me that was high-quality and in my budget. She has since given me many tips about furniture to help me when I make new purchases in the future. I plan to share them here!

3 Tips For Selecting The Right Bedroom Set

by Wayne Watson

Your bed, dresser, and nightstand are essential, since they will provide you with a stable, functional environment whenever you use your bedroom. However, if you aren't careful, you may choose a bedroom set that doesn't fit well with your space, decorating scheme, or typical lifestyle. Here are three tips for selecting a bedroom set, and why you shouldn't hesitate to shop around.    

1.    Measure Your Space

Before you visit the furniture store, measure your space carefully. Using a pad and paper to record your measurements, move through your room with a measuring tape to measure the width and depth of the room. Measure the width of walls where you might want to place furniture, and don't forget to measure the width of your door.  

Bring your measuring tape and notes with you to the store so you can quickly and easily measure any prospective furniture pieces. This way, you can avoid buying items that are too large or too small for the space, saving you a significant amount of time later.    

2.    Consider Your Aesthetic

Think about what kind of style you want in your home, and shop in those sections in the store. For instance, do you like more of a traditional look for your home, or do you like sleek, modern pieces? When you start shopping at the store, look for your aesthetic first to narrow down your selection.  

After you find an item you like, envision it in your space. Would it meld with the colors, style themes, and hardware choices already present in the room? If you can picture a piece of furniture in the space, you can rest assured that it will look great.  

3.    Think About Daily Use

Looks are one thing, but functionality is far more important. Think about how the piece of furniture would work with your lifestyle, and whether it could stand up against the rigors of your household. For instance, would kids and pets be around the piece of furniture? If so, try to select pieces that would be hard to scratch, dent, pierce, or stain.   Remember, by choosing the right bedroom set, you can create the kind of relaxing bedroom interior you deserve after a busy day of work and play. When you are ready to start shopping, turn to furniture stores in your area, and don't be shy to ask for exactly what you want. After all, the right bedroom set could make your space feel unique and finished.
