You have just finished your bedroom remodel. The new colors and style are beautiful and they match your style completely. But your furniture no longer matches your room. However, you do not want to break the bank buying new bedroom furniture. But on the other side, you don’t want to buy cheap furniture. We have good news for you. You do not have to sacrifice value for affordability, or affordability for quality. But then again, you do have to keep your eyes open and your anticipations realistic. Buying good bedroom furniture for your bedroom remodel is possible.
The Importance of Bedroom Furniture Workmanship
Many have mentioned that they notice that their bedroom furniture seem to give out before the rest of their furniture. The reason is because it is usually used more frequently and more heavily than any other furniture in the house.For many, their bedroom furniture will get used more consistently than any of the other furniture in your home. Think about it, if you spend all day at work and never turn on your TV, you’ll still begin and end the day in bed. Not only do we start and end our day in our beds, think about how much we toss and turn in bed.
Do you keep a glass or bottle of water next to your bed? Do you ever remember to use a coaster for a glass of water in the middle of the night? If your nightstand has a finish, chances are, it is just sprayed on rather than a genuine varnish. As a result, you can expect your water glass to leave marks on your end table.
How many times a week, do you hit your snooze button on your alarm clock? Where is your alarm clock? On your nightstand? If the pieces are just loosely bolted together, there’ll be some damage within a few years.
Your nightstand drawers will be pulled open and slammed shut on a daily basis. If the drawers are sliding on metal rather than plastic runners, you might just yank the drawer and pull it right out of the runner.
Of course, you could treat your furniture delicately, if that is even possible to do after working all day and you are tired. Or rushing to get ready to leave the house on time in the morning. When you think about it, you are putting a great deal of stress to your bedroom furniture.
Considering that you may spend a third of your life in the bedroom, it’s important that every aspect of your room be nice and is personalized.
How to properly judge Quality Discount Bedroom Furniture
You can find both good and bad quality furniture at just about any furniture store. But quality provided by some stores can be worse than others.
In particular, be cautious of any of the new bedroom furniture lines being sold by discount department stores. According to a New York Times article, when a professional furniture craftsman checked out the “designer” pieces at a particular department store, he found a lot of reason to believe the furniture would not last. The biggest cause for alarm that he found were parts that were bolted together without being glued. When parts are only bolted together without glue, the bolts will unavoidably become loose. As time goes on, the bolts that are loose will become even looser. As a matter of fact, the bolts can become so loose, that an action as simple as hitting the snooze button can send a nightstand crashing down to the floor.
Materials used are as important as the workmanship. For example, hardwood costs more than particleboard, but not everyone can spot particleboard right away.
Try looking for furniture from a respected design company. A design table sold in one store should be roughly as good as the table sold in another. Of course, name brand furniture are expensive but you can cut down on cost by comparison shopping online just as you would for electronics or cars. You can even buy the furniture online and have it delivered to your house, the same as from an offline furniture store.
Wherever you buy your bedroom furniture, just make sure it is a good quality. After all, you will be spending a third of your life in it.
