Bedroom Furniture for a Boy’s First Bedroom

If you have been thinking of getting rid of your bedroom furniture or just upgrading a few pieces of that bedroom furniture you have there is really no time like the present to do it.  The current economy is giving you an open door policy to go out, make a purchase and enjoy the bedroom furniture pieces you have always wanted at a price you can afford.

Here’s what’s happening from the furniture store standpoint.

Before the economic downturn, furniture stores thought everything was going well. Real estate sales were high, which meant people were trying to purchase new homes all the time and they were going to furnish those homes once they moved in. That gave furniture companies all the incentive they needed to keep their showrooms stocked, wall-to-wall, with great things for all those new homeowners to buy.

Then the market turned. Home sales started dropping and people were not purchasing a new place to live, which meant they no longer needed those bedroom furniture sets and all those other furniture items for their homes. This left the furniture stores with a glut of inventory and not nearly as much money coming in the front door to pay for it all.

Had this just been for a couple months it would have been one thing, but it was not. As we all know, the economic downturn has been going on for a while and the long-term effect of that has been more and more strain on furniture companies.

Sadly a number of them have not been able to make it through this time. They have had to close their doors. If this is happening to stores around you, you may be able to use their sad story to your benefit. As these stores are going out of business, they usually hold a final going out of business sale to try and move any inventory they can and make some of their money back. If you are watching for these sales, you may be able to get a hold of whole bedroom sets at deep discounts, even as low as you may have expected to just purchase the bed for.

For those stores that have been able to hold on through this time, they still need sales. This means you can often name your price, or at least negotiate to a better price in the store. Talk to your sales person. Tell them the kind of bedroom furniture you want, but also let them know you have a limited budget. You may be pleased to see how much they can bend to make that sale you want at a price you like.
