We all love looking at beautiful homes in magazines. The rooms are professionally designed, gorgeous, and you guessed it – expensive!
The average cost of a bedroom set is a tricky number to nail down because prices depend on many factors. Prices can range from as low as $500 to over $50,000 for a king or queen bedroom set. Factors like bed size, number of pieces included, the store you are purchasing from, and even the city you are in can impact your total spend.
Don’t lose hope; not all furniture will break the bank. We’ve outlined a few tips below for how to find a great deal on high-quality bedroom furniture.
3 Key Things to Look For in a Good Quality, Affordable Bedroom Set
1) Type of wood – Solid wood furniture can be quite pricey. Wood veneers are a great choice when you are on a budget. An inexpensive wood base, usually plywood, is covered by several thin layers of high-quality wood. These pieces generally look just as nice for a fraction of the price and, if cared for, can last a lifetime.
2) Sturdy drawers – You’ll be able to tell right away when you open and close a drawer if the construction will hold up over time. Drawers should pull out and close smoothly and the handles should be firmly in place. Dovetail joints or drawers with reinforced corner blocks will hold up better over time than nail and glue.
3) The finish – Consistency of the finish should be even and flat (no bubbles). Examine the pieces in the showroom floor for dings and scratches. Furniture should be able to withstand the wear and tear of the showroom floor and still look brand new.
