How many times have you stubbed your toe on the metal post of your bed frame? Do you still have a bed frame that sits on wheels and seems to drift away from the wall every time you try to read in bed? A bed frame is one of the last pieces of furniture people want to upgrade as they get older and start to earn more money. A new sofa, coffee table, and dining table often take precedence as guests are more likely to see them. But a better bed frame can make a big difference in your lifestyle. It’s not hard to save money when you’re ready to upgrade your bed frame, either.
Shop for Bed Frames Online
One of the cheapest ways to find new bed frames is by shopping online. Traditional stores have a lot of overhead to cover, including rent on multiple store fronts and staff. Online retailers offer lower prices because they cut out the overhead from having multiple stores. Instead, they can offer huge inventories based in warehouses. With the right delivery rates, shopping online can be much easier. If you’re worried about buying products sight unseen, most online retailers have very easy-to-navigate return policies.
Get Free Bed Frame Shipping
Sometimes shoppers are reluctant to go online because the shipping fees can dig into savings they might find there. That might be true of clothes or books, but when it comes to big, bulky items like a bed frame, there are going to be delivery costs no matter where you go, whether it’s renting your own truck or paying the company to deliver it. By some estimates, the going rate for furniture delivery is a minimum of $150 in most major cities, while longer distances will raise the costs for gas and the driver’s time. But many online retailers now offer free shipping on large orders. Most bed frames will hit that limit without you having to add on any extras for free shipping, so it’s definitely worth going online.
Shop for Bed Frames Off-Season
Have you ever noticed that big ticket retailers like furniture stores always advertise incredible deals when you’re on vacation? That’s because retailers are fighting with vacation season for your money and your time. When you’re already spending thousands on airfare, hotels, and resorts, you’re not thinking about replacing furniture. Even if you’re just spending a long weekend at the cottage, that means you’re relaxing, not hitting the stores. Take a popular long weekend for vacations and make that the day you decide to buy a new bed frame. Some of the best shopping holidays over the summer include Labor Day and the Fourth of July (or Canada Day on July 1st for Canadian shoppers). The entire month of July is also a good time to buy furniture as it’s often when old models need to be moved off the floor to make room for the next season’s wares.
Freshen up your bedroom with a new bed frame this summer. It’s time to fill your home with the furniture you love.
