Tips for Buying Bedroom Furniture as a Newlywed Couple

By Dustin | Finances & Careers

There is nothing more exciting than trying to piece together your new home that you are going to share with the love of your life.

Whether you have never really had the chance or the reason to invest in quality furniture sets, you now have a reason since you are married.

After all, it is not just you, as a single person, needing something to fall asleep on at night.

The bedroom furniture sets the tone for the entire room and it should be made of quality materials in order to ensure that it is going to last for a long time to come.

So, how can you make this big financial and style decision with someone else?

Research the Quality

Sure, while the look of the bedroom furniture is going to be first to come to mind over the quality of the pieces, it is important to first make sure that you are focusing on the quality.

After all, it can look like the best bedroom set you have ever dreamed of owning, but if it is going to start falling apart in a year or two, that is not really going to do you much good.

Search for a quality brand, such as Stanley bedroom furniture in order to know that you are spending your money wisely.

Remember, some of the bedroom furniture sets out there can get a little pricey. This is truly an investment, so even if you are now working with two incomes, you still have to keep this in mind.

Do the Furniture Shopping Together

No matter what, you will want to shop together when it comes to finding expensive furniture to place in the home that you now share together.

Even if the other person says that they don’t mind, that they trust your instincts, or that they just want you to do the decision making, it is still crucial that you are shopping together.

This way, you will reduce the chances of you accidentally picking bedroom furniture that he or she is not comfortable with.

Also, since you are combining your finances now, you will be using some of his or her money. You don’t want to spend more than they were thinking in their head that you would spend, as this could cause a fight.

Don’t Let Your Emotions Get in the Way

While you have to make sure that you are buying bedroom furniture that you are really going to like, you do not want to make that mistake of allowing your emotions to take control of the situation.

Remember that some stores will use sales signs in order to spark a sense of urgency, when there may not be that much of a price difference when there is not a big red sale sign in front of the furniture.

If you are getting overly excited about a bedroom set, but your spouse is not sure about it, leave the store. Go grab some lunch and think about it.

You might find that after leaving the store and concentrating on something else for a little bit that you are no longer as overly interested in that particular bedroom suit. Then again, if you are still smitten with it, you might find that your spouse will begin to come around to the idea of it since it truly seems like a great deal to you.

As you can see, buying a new bedroom set of furniture may be a lot more complex than you could have ever imagined. Therefore, you are going to want to make sure that you are taking your time when you are ready to start shopping.

This is a big purchase and a commitment that you are making for many years. It is not something to buy on impulse if you want to stay in line with your budget and stay on the good side of your new spouse.

It’s good to know that when it comes to buying furniture as newlyweds, that there are things we can do to find the right ones for the right price. I like how you pointed out that it might be a good idea to make my emotions are staying in check, and not spend more on a piece I like and not have the any money for anything else. My husband will really appreciate that I don’t just jump the gun when I see something I want, and we will be able to hopefully save money.

I really appreciated the suggestion of what to do if your spouse isn’t as excited as you are. That would be really helpful for me to do with my husband. I’m an impulsive buyer, especially when my emotions are involved.
