Bedroom Furniture That Won't Break the Bank
Is your bedroom furniture tired and outdated? Are you just flat-out ready for a new look? If your answer to either of these questions is â¬Åyes, we've got some new bedroom furniture solutions for you that won't require you to rack up more credit card debt or live off of Spaghetti-Os and ramen noodles.
If you're in the market for a new bed, consider the option many are choosing to give their room a contemporary lookâ¬"a platform bed. Platform beds are a sleek new trend, taking the world of bedroom dÃÂ©cor by storm. These low-profile, no-frills beds save you money by not requiring a box spring and many feature forward-thinking European or Asian styling. If you're looking for an inexpensive way to bring your bedroom into the 21st century, look no further than a brand new platform bed.
Another way to spruce up your bedroom on the cheap is to embrace the world of engineered woods. Particle board, medium density fiberboard, and hardboard have almost become dirty words in the furniture business, and this is simply not fair. Ready-to-assemble furniture, which usually features one of the aforementioned types of wood is often stronger and holds up to the rigors of everyday use far better than expensive solid wood pieces. The main draw back to RTA furniture is that it can usually survive only one or two moves before its ready for the dumpster.
Another type of furniture people shy away from for all the wrong reasons is veneered furniture. Veneered wood is an excellent alternative to more expensive solid wood because it gives the appearance of the solid wood without the hefty price tag. A veneer is simply a thin layer of solid wood over a core of engineered wood, such as MDF or hardboard. Veneers provide the look of solid wood furniture with the strength and durability of RTA furniture.
