Best Furniture Financing Options in Chicago & Indianapolis: Cash, Store Credit Card, or The RoomPlace Credit Card?

While many furniture stores in the Chicago and Indianapolis regions offer furniture financing options, it’s important to be aware that not all options are created equal. The most common forms of furniture payments include: credit card, store credit card, and cash. Read below to see the pros and cons of each.

Pay with cash: This is a good option if you are able to front the cash while making your purchase. Some people prefer to not have monthly payments, but the downside of paying in cash is that you are out a significant chunk of money that you can be using towards your other expenses. This is where using zero interest payment options to spread out your payments to several months is helpful because it does not affect your monthly budgeting as much as a one-time payment.

Pay with your credit card: If you have the credit limit to charge a furniture purchase on your credit card that may be a good option for you. Some people prefer to earn rewards points with their credit cards, but traditionally speaking, interest rates on payments can add up if you cannot pay the cost of your purchase that month.

Pay with a private furniture store credit card: Furniture store credit cards usually offer 0% interest financing for several months to a few years which you cannot usually get from a rewards credit card or debit card. For example, a store might offer a 12 month financing with 0% interest and no down payment on a minimum purchase price of $1,500. Meaning if you pay off your purchase in 12 months, you will not accrue any interest, which can be a great deal. The challenge is making sure you create a payment that you are comfortable with in order to pay often the amount in the long run.

At The RoomPlace, we believe that you shouldn’t have to wait to get your dream room, and that you should receive it from a company that believes in transparency. That’s why we’re proud to introduce the “Yes You Can,” a program designed to make the buying process more manageable for our customers. For $25 a month, you can get that modern living room set or embrace your traditional style with a rich oak bed. With thousands of carefully curated and crafted pieces, we’re proud to be your resource for your home furnishing needs.

When you use our credit card to finance your furniture, you can enjoy interest-free financing for up to 24 months with little to no down payment. We’ve also created a convenient online account to make bill paying simple and straightforward. Check out our frequently asked financing questions on our customer financing resource.

With the right research and financing plans, you won’t have to compromise quality for affordability. If you’ve been wondering how to pay for furniture without breaking your budget, then we have the solution. Go ahead and say it: “Yes You Can!”

Holiday Gift Ideas for Kids: An Easy Bedroom Makeover From The RoomPlace

We know the words “bedroom makeover” often bring to mind visions of paint swatches, renovation plans, and a complete furniture overhaul. We’re happy to report it’s quite simple to make a transformation with the help of just one or two pieces of strategic furniture.

Bunk Beds: A Small Change with a Big Impact

Bunk beds are not only functional and fun, they’re also a genius way to persuade your kids to share a room. Younger children will adore being up high on the top bunk while older children will undoubtedly love the “fort effect” that a new bed like the Sundance offers.

Daybeds: A Grown up Transition

If your children are heading into their preteens, it’s time to consider upgrading their bed situation to a more grownup, lasting option. Daybeds are the adult alternative to bunk beds: they have wider mattresses; can still accommodate two sleepers (with the trundle option); and look more mature. Pieces like the Donovan can be dressed up with textured and patterned accent pillows or toned down with wild colored throws or comforters.

Benches: Store Smart

If you trip over your little one’s scarves, hats and other assorted accessories, consider giving a gift for both them and yourself—a storage bench, or one of our Paris chairs. Storage doesn’t have to be boring or one-dimensional, so embrace the multifunction options at your disposal. Storage benches can give additional seating in your kids’ room so their friends can have somewhere to chill and you’ll have somewhere to put all of their additional odds and ends.

Want to make the gift-hunting experience even more affordable? Explore our Deal Flyer, which features a rotating offering of our best promotions. We’re happy to help parents in Chicago and Indianapolis find meaningful gifts that will outlast the trends of the holiday season. Invest in the perfect room makeover solutions today!

Announcing our New Greenwood Location

As part of our effort to consistently provide access to quality furniture all across Indiana and Illinois, we’re always looking for places where we can expand our family of furniture stores. Greenwood, Indiana was a natural choice given its proximity to Indianapolis, and a clear need for a reliable local furniture retailer. Our new location at 7609 Shelby Street allows us to provide area shoppers with quality mattresses, dining sets, bedroom sets, couches and more.

Though our new location in Greenwood, Indiana’s Grand Opening was on January 18th, we’re still excited to have a new furniture store to tell our loyal customers about! If you’re anywhere near Greenwood, IN, then we’d love to have you visit our new store and take advantage of the deals that accompany a grand opening.

Nightstands: No Bedroom Is Complete Without One

At The RoomPlace, we know there are many furniture items that may not attract much attention or get much recognition, but still play roles that would be missed if absent. One such piece is the nightstand, generally a small and unobtrusive table with a drawer or two nestled by the side of your bed. Due to their size and positioning, most people don’t even notice their nightstand on a daily basis; it’s simply there, providing a space for your lamp and alarm clock, and a surface to place your glasses or book on. But take that away, and suddenly your nightly routine is incomplete.

Most of our bedroom sets come with the nightstand included, but if you suddenly find yourself in need of a new nightstand, you probably aren’t looking to buy an entire set. That’s fine, because at our furniture store you can buy nightstands in many styles—there’s bound to be something that matches the look and feel of your home.

For a light, Italian-inspired look with mod chrome handles and a glossy white finish, the Milano nightstand is a great option. The Sean Pierre Nightstand offers a more traditional look, though if you want something featuring both rich wood finishes and a sleeker, more modern design, the New York nightstand is a great favorite with its contrasting wood grains and round handles. The Symphony nightstand offers a lighter, antique look with its intricately-carved details.

Nightstands perform an important function in most of our lives, so if you happen to need one, be sure to head over to The RoomPlace to shop our impressive selection of styles. We’d love to answer any questions you have and help you find the piece that best matches your need. Stop by today!

The Dangers of Buying Used Furniture

Many people think that buying furniture second hand is the best way to save money on furniture. Sure, it takes a little more effort to search for a good deal, but used goods are always cheaper.  But, cheaper isn’t always better. As Chicagoland furniture dealers, we know there are several issues that can come up when people try to purchase furniture second hand that may end up costing you more in the long run:

1. Bed bugs. Of particular concern in the city, once you have bed bugs in your home, it is costly and time-consuming—not to mention hugely inconvenient—to get rid of them. Bed bugs can live in virtually any type of furniture, and the person you buy an item from may not even know they have bed bugs.

2. Quality. You don’t always know how the piece has been used, how much wear it’s experienced, and if there may be wear and tear you can’t see from the outside. The bottom line is, if you’re not buying furniture new, you just don’t know what kind of condition it’s truly in.

3. Pet dander and other irritants. No matter how well a seller may clean a piece before selling it, if they live with pets or smoke, chances are you could be purchasing a piece of furniture that’s rife with substances that could cause allergies or asthma to flare up.

Buying new furniture is the only way you know that the piece is whole, structurally sound, and clean. At The RoomPlace, you’ll never have to worry about a mattress’s history or an armchair’s sturdiness—but you will get peace of mind with every purchase.

Consumers Looking To Update Homes, Buy New Furniture in 2014

At The RoomPlace, we’re happy to share that the future looks bright for furniture retail. 2014 has begun with a bang, and though the weather in Chicagoland has been rough, it hasn’t been keeping furniture shoppers at home. According to Reuters, consumer confidence ended 2013 on a high note, clocking in at 82.5—the highest it had been since July of last year. The holiday season and optimism for the year to come have been heavily credited for this increase. And as real estate values slowly recover, homeowners have plenty to celebrate.

At The RoomPlace, we always think that a great way to celebrate any occasion is to buy new furniture. So of course we love when the market agrees! The outlook for industrial production in the US is certainly sunny so far, with the end of a very strong quarter right behind us in December 2013.

Though furniture items tend to last a long time before needing replacement, many Americans are looking to update their home’s design and face the New Year with a new outlook. Upholstery fades and tears, joints weaken, and design trends wait for no one, so if you’ve been thinking of updating your home, now is the time! Your home is the most basic expression of who you are, so it’s important to have everything in its place and designs surrounding you that make you happy. If you know it’s time for a change but aren’t sure where to begin, that’s okay too—just head over to one of our many Illinois and Indiana furniture store locations to speak with our experienced staff, and we’ll help you figure it out.
