Have you always dreamed of furnishing your bedroom with the best bedroom furniture available in the styles and colors you love? If you want to take the guesswork out of designing your bedroom but still have a richly appointed room, a complete bedroom set is definitely the way to go. Most people operate under the misconception that bedroom sets are obscenely expensive, but you can actually get complete bedroom sets for less in more ways than one.
Avoid your local furniture dealer and turn to the web.
Brick and mortar furniture stores have always seemed more trustworthy than online sources. Local furniture stores offer personal customer service, white glove delivery services, and tangible showrooms. But if you’re looking for a complete bedroom set, that is the worst place to start.
Your local furniture dealer isn’t likely to have all of the available pieces in a bed set available in their showroom or in their warehouse. They are probably going to order it from the manufacturer, and charge you a large markup. Sometimes, furniture dealers are actually selling items from the previous season, and the other pieces are no longer available by normal means.
Making the switch to buy your furniture online is well worth the loss of personal service. You can get free delivery (to your door, be prepared). And the more pieces you buy, the bigger your discounts. You are also more likely to find clearance items from previous seasons because online furniture stores have access to much larger inventories.
Take advantage of retail holidays.
This might seem obvious, but even if you aren’t a believer in the consumerism of various holidays it is still a great time to save a bundle on your bedroom set. American holidays created and perpetuated by consumerism – like Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday – actually influence sale prices in online furniture stores around the world as they strive to compete against local furniture stores. That means everyone can enjoy the savings, even if you don’t subscribe to the practice in general.
A few other retail holidays that can influence furniture sale prices include:
- Father’s Day
- Veteran’s Day
- Labor Day
- Memorial Day
- Back to school
As you would expect, each of these will have a different type of furniture on sale. For example, since Memorial Day is at the end of May, it is a good time to find outdoor furniture or bedroom sets in the coastal style on sale. On the other hand, if you want a new bedroom set that includes a handsome media chest for your favorite head of household, Father’s Day will be the best sale time for you.
The changing of the seasons always means a change in stock.
Clothing isn’t the only thing that goes by season. Furniture collections are also released at the changing of the seasons, even though you expect to use them for years to come. Whenever there are new bedroom collections being released, previous collections from the same brands are relegated to the clearance section of online furniture stores. That means that this is the best time to get the best deals on the previous season’s furniture, which is every bit as stylish as that being sold on your local dealer’s showroom floor.
