Beds don't have to be Costly to be Quality
Shopping for beds over the internet, or direct from the factory, all sounds very 'cost-cutting' and consumer savvy, but there are a few things we should all know about cheap beds.
In order for you to be able to make better informed decisions, especially regarding something as important as beds, is try not to think cheap but think discount. There's a huge difference here between the two. You see, even though you might be on a tight budget, that doesn't mean that affordable beds have to be make-do products just because your price range offers limitations.
The internet is one such place where shopping for beds online (to include bedding and bedroom furniture) can really save you time and money, but there are obvious drawbacks to buying direct in this way without actually seeing, feeling, and touching the products first.
Shop Smart and you WILL get Great Value for Money
Whether you're looking for beds, mattresses, bed frames, storage beds, wooden beds, wrought iron beds, or bedding products such as linen, comforters, blankets, pillows and so on, the most important thing for any shopper to learn is the difference between something that's cheap, as in quality, and something that has simply been reduced in priced, as in discounted.
The difference simply means that you can purchase your bed cheaply, but it doesn’t mean it has to be a cheap bed. With approximately one third of our lives spent in slumber, it is crucial that we always buy the best that we can possibly afford with regards to bed and bedding items. After all, who wouldn't want a comfortable and supportive at bedtime and enjoy a great night's sleep. What’s more, the better the quality the longer it will be before we're out shopping again for yet more low priced bedroom sets.
Be Wary, be very wary of the Bed Shops Online
The internet shopping experience has become a real pain in the backside for many high street retailers, but unless you really know the product and have positive previous experience with it, then buying beds via the online Bed Shops (AKA Virtual stores), is perhaps not the best idea. Okay, so you might see some fantastic discount beds on offer, but buying such costly and cumbersome items such as beds direct off the internet, could prove to become a bit of a logistical nightmare should you become unhappy with the products.
There is a solution: If you can find an affordable bed that you like the look and feel of on the high street, you could then go back home and compare prices online. If the online offer is better, which is likely, then you could return to your local bed shops and ask them to match it or lose your custom. If they will match the price and offer to deliver for free (likely again if it's a local outfit), then your bit of research has paid off nicely.
High Street Shops Vs the Direct Showroom
You may have noticed in recent years that there are 2 types of furniture shops. One is the brand name store that will either have its own shop or a department in a larger store, and the other is little more than a warehouse type of setup on an industrial estate on the outskirts of town.
The latter is more likely to have cheaper beds and heavily discounted beds, bed frames, and mattresses, but there are pros and cons despite the cost advantages. Firstly, the high street bedding centre will most probably have all the latest designs, the style, and fashions in all things related to beds and bedrooms.
The showroom setup is more likely to have a plethora of older fashions, end of line stock, or slow movers that they were able to purchase for a steal. That said, just because the home fashion industry says that something is so last year, doesn't mean it's doesn't still look great.
Discounted and Cheap Beds Direct from Factory or Warehouse. Fast Shopping!
Most of us go shopping when we're ready to, or almost ready to buy. The problem with household furniture, be that lounge, living room, bathroom, or the bedroom, is that more often than not we have to order and wait quite some considerable time for our purchase to be delivered. Sometimes this runs into weeks, and occasionally months, especially with new and popular lines.
The great thing about shopping at the Beds Direct outlets is that if you like what you see, then there's a good chance that it can be delivered later than day, or certainly within the next 24 to 48 hours depending on the convenience of time and days from both parties.
It's a sobering thought to think that you can get fast delivery straight to your door shortly after you've placed an order.
SUMMARY: To enjoy support and comfort from your new bed, then think 'Discount Beds' and avoid the cheap options. Low cost beds and are bad for your health, period. It's better to look for quality that has been heavily discounted. Affordable bedding direct from the virtual or real world is out there, and quality really can be had without the hefty price tag to match.
Bed Bedding says: Here's are some interesting facts for we consumer show-offs. 1. Most singles and families keep their beds longer than they do their cars. 2. Most of us spend way less money on beds than we do our vehicles. 3. All of us spend way more time on the bed than in the car. In other words folks, many of us (but not all), care more about the shiny 4 wheels sitting out the front, than we do the beds and bedding in the bedroom. Expensive cars and cheap beds! Hmm! Is there something wrong with this picture? Only you can answer that ;-)
