Bedroom Sets Buying Guide
Bedroom sets, or suites, have always been sensible, fashionable purchases. Though some interior designers advise mixing up furniture pieces to create interesting rooms, there is a lot of comfort in knowing that everything matches. Buying a complete set can also be an affordable choice, as they are often on sale in showrooms.
Types of Bedroom Sets
The bedroom sets you see in furniture-store ads can vary widely in price and included pieces. Here are the two main types of sets, but you will find any number of combinations when you shop.
A basic bedroom set includes three pieces: a bed with a headboard, a nightstand, and a dresser. Typically these sets are sold with one price that includes all the pieces.
An expanded bedroom set includes the basic pieces (bed, nightstand, and dresser) but may also include one or a combination of these extras: a chest of drawers, a second nightstand, a bench, an armoire, lamps, mirrors, and even bedding. The extra pieces may be included in the overall price or priced individually so you can add one or more of them to the set, but you don't have to get them all.
Before you get lured into buying a bedroom set that is fantastically priced, keep in mind your bedroom's dimensions, including doorways and windows. Will you be able to fit all of the included pieces in your space? If not, can you find room elsewhere in your house for an additional dresser or nightstand? Also, check the quality of each component in the set -- lean against the headboard and pull out the dresser drawers, for example.
Are you paying one price for all the pieces of furniture? One disadvantage is that this can limit your options should you have a problem with just the dresser, for example. Likely you'll have to exchange the piece for another, rather than receive a refund. An advantage, however, is that you may be able to negotiate the final price. Ask about waiving the delivery and setup fees. Or is there an extra service the store offers that can be thrown in, such as design consultation?
Buying a bedroom set doesn't have to be a lump-sum purchase. Many stores will offer discounts if you buy more than one piece in the set, but you don't have to buy them all. Bedroom sets can have a limited shelf life, however, because they are typically produced and priced for quick sales. If you don't buy all the pieces initially, you may have trouble adding matching pieces later.
