Furnish Your Master Bedroom at an Estate Sale

If you have any experience shopping for master bedroom furniture, you’re well aware just how expensive it can be. It’s not out of the question to spend thousands upon thousands of dollars at a local furniture store.

If this is out of your price range, it’s time to turn your attention to local estate sales. You may be able to find everything you’re looking for, at a fraction of the cost.

So, this leads to an important question: what should you keep your eyes out for? Here’s a good start:

·      Headboard: While most people never consider a second hand mattress, a headboard is a different story entirely. A quality headboard can cost $500+ when purchased new, but you can secure big savings at an estate sale. Furthermore, if available, you may be able to purchase the entire bed at a discounted price

·      Nightstand: Every master bedroom needs at least one nightstand, if not two. If you can find a pair of these at a reasonable price, don’t hesitate to pull the trigger.

·      Dresser: Where do you keep all your clothes? An all-wood dresser is expensive to purchase new, but much more affordable at an estate sale. If you’re lucky, you’ll find one that matches the nightstands.

No matter what you’re shopping for, keep these three things in mind:

·      Quality (what’s it made of?)

·      Condition

·      Price

Note: also make note of the manufacturer, with Henkel Harris, Baker, Henredon, Ethan Allen, Stanley, and Bassett among the best.

If it’s time to furnish your master bedroom, visit a few local estate sales before buying anything new. You’ll be glad that you did in the end!
