You don’t want to break the bank by buying bedroom furniture. But you don’t want to break the bed because you bought it cheap. You don’t have to sacrifice quality for economic accessibility or economic accessibility for quality. But you have to keep your eyes open and your expectations realistic. There are many furniture manufacturers who will be more than happy to separate a madman from his money.
Why bedroom furniture crafts are so important
Why does bedroom furniture seem to often give out compared to the rest of the home’s furniture? Because it is usually used more frequently and more heavily than any other furniture in the house.
Frequent use guaranteed.
For many people, bedroom furniture will be used more consistently than any other room. Even if you spend all day at work and never turn on the TV, you will start and end the day in bed.
Nobody is a kind creature in the middle of the night or the first thing in the morning.
Throw and turn to bed? I hope better that the joints of your bed can bear it.
Who remembers using a coaster for a glass of water in the middle of the night? If the finish on your bedside table is just sprayed rather than a real paint, you can expect that glass of water to leave some pretty nasty scars.
The bedside table will make a rattle when you press the “snooze” button. If the pieces are simply loosened together, there will be some damage within a few years.
The office drawers will be opened and closed with force. If the drawers slide on metal instead of plastic runners, you could simply tear the drawer out and pull it out.
Of course, you could treat the furniture gently. If you can do it even when you’re tired, it would be a great way to bring a lot of stress into the room.
Considering that you could spend a third of your life in the bedroom, why not make it pleasant?
Judging by the discount on bedroom furniture
You can find good and bad furniture in almost all furniture stores. Furniture stores tend to be a bit like car dealers that way. But some stores can be worse than others.
In particular, pay attention to the new lines of bedroom furniture sold by discounted department stores. Kmart and Target, in particular, have moved to the furniture sector with mixed results. According to a recent New York Times article, when a professional furniture craftsman checked Target’s “designer” pieces, he found many reasons to believe that the furniture wouldn’t last. The main cause of alarm: parts that have been bolted on without being glued.
When the parts are screwed together, they inevitably start to swing just a little. Over time, the swing will loosen the bolts. So one day when you hit the “snooze” button, the bedside table will crash under it.
The materials are obviously as important as the workmanship, at least as regards the price. Everyone knows that hardwood costs more than chipboard. But not everyone can spot the chipboard immediately. What does “oak” mean? Just because something looks like oak doesn’t mean it’s oak.
If every inch of the surface is covered with a sort of veneer, check the label of the materials on the furniture label. Every piece of furniture you buy should have some sort of label like this. If you shop online, the part’s website description should tell you what the materials are. If not, take your business elsewhere.
Want a shortcut to finding well-made discounted bedroom furniture? Try looking for furniture from a respected design company. An Ethan Allen table sold in one store should be roughly as good as an Ethan Allen table sold in another. Of course, these brands are expensive. You can cut costs by comparing online shopping just like you would for electronics or cars. You can even buy furniture online and deliver it to your home, like in an offline furniture store.
Wherever you buy your bedroom furniture, just make sure it’s quality. After all, you will spend a third of your life in it.
