What is your preference when you buy fitted bedroom wardrobes? Save more money now even if you have to replace the furniture in the next 5 to 10 years? Or pay more now to get better quality fitted wardrobes that will last you 20 to 30 years? Although both ways of thinking are equally valid, most people prefer to think short-term.
Does it matter whether you think long-term or short-term? Yes, because it affects which strategy you use to furnish fitted bedrooms. The way you find cheap fitted bedroom furniture is different from the way you find quality bedroom furniture. Bargain bedroom furniture can often be bought online or at a warehouse sale. Quality furniture cannot usually be found this way.
Why not? Because online furniture retailers normally only sell lower-end bedroom wardrobes. These are usually made from either fiberboard or cheap grades of softwoods. Obviously, these are not long-lasting materials. What about warehouse sales? Well, warehouse sales normally only sell leftover stock. But most furniture makers do not produce high quality bedroom furniture in bulk. Quality furniture is sold at a premium, and their prices are raised further by limiting their available quantities. That means you usually cannot find any pieces left over at the end of the season discount sales.
Does this mean you cannot save on money if you want to buy quality fitted bedroom furniture? Hardly. You just need a different strategy. Instead of looking online or for a discount sale, try buying directly from the manufacturer. Many furniture workshops and factories sell direct to consumers through mail order catalogs. In the past, you have to order these catalogs through the mail. But with the internet, you can find these catalogs on the websites of individual furniture makers. When sold direct from their catalogs, you save on the middleman’s fees (which is to say you do not need to pay the salesman and the furniture shop).
Whether you buy bargain fitted bedroom wardrobes or buy premium furniture for your fitted bedrooms is up to you. The strategy for the former is fairly well-known. But many people are ignorant of how to get consistent discounts when buying high quality fitted furniture.
