The bed is where you start and end each day. It’s the center of the bedroom, and for some, the center of their home. The bed is often the very first piece put into a new home, which is metaphorically the first brick in the construction of the style, theme, and atmosphere built around it. So buying the right bed is a big decision and, usually, a big investment. But that doesn’t mean it needs to cost as much as a car! Especially for those just starting off on their own, without any set guidelines on style or theme, the possibilities are wide open for investing in your first bed. A few factors need to be taken into account to narrow the field, such as mattress size (will you be sleeping alone? how big is the bedroom? what is your budget?), bed size (can you fit a canopy? do you want extravagant style or practicality and maximized floor space? can you physically get that bed frame into your fourth story apartment?), bed style (you might not want a natural wood finish bed in your white and black painted, Contemporary style apartment unit), and lastly, your budget. The first three depend largely on the situation, but as for budget, everyone wants to save money! One great way to do that, especially when starting off on your own, is to shop clearance beds. Chances are you don’t have much, or any, furniture to have a pre-set style (or maybe you just don’t overly care), your first home probably has some flexibility on the style of furniture that would work well within, and, especially if you don’t already have a mattress, your size options are flexible as well. With an open attitude you can then shop available Clearance Beds and let the savings decide the right piece to start off your new home.
When shopping the Clearance Beds, rule out the options that simply won’t work (if you’re a single sleeper, you probably don’t need a King size bed taking up that much floor space), and then compare price and favoritism to narrow in on the potential options (that $2,000 bed might be more like the one you imagined in your head, but by getting the $500 bed instead, you just saved 2 months worth of rent!). Once you’ve narrowed it down to the best options budget-wise (assuming there are viable options that suit your needs), then you can make the decisions of what size, style, and design suits you best: a metal or a wood frame, Traditional or Contemporary style, a standard bed or an alternative such as a daybed or sleeper sofa, etc. By the end of this process, you will hopefully have narrowed down the deeply discounted Clearance Beds to a few suitable options from which to choose the best one for you. Consider the pros and cons of the design, as well as the style and size. Do some preliminary research on other furniture of the same style to see if you can find good matching pieces for certain styles as opposed to other. In the end, you will hopefully have narrowed down the limited Clearance Beds selection to the best item for you. Make sure you the savings are worth any sacrifices you may be making for a full-price bed of a different type, but at Clearance prices, the choice is usually pretty easy.
