So you’re moving into a new house or apartment... Or maybe you’re upgrading your current space. Furnishing a home can be a very exciting, but sometimes daunting, task.
Balling on a budget?
Here’s a quick list of when to splurge and when to save on your furniture:
Your Mattress - INVEST.
You are either in your bed or in your shoes, so it pays to invest in both. You will spend ⅓ of your life in bed – wouldn’t you want a good one? Plus if you invest, there’s no need to replace it for years to come. Restonic Mattresses are the leaders of the pack when it comes to quality mattresses (see our Why Restonic blog). If you’re going to splurge on one thing in your home, it should be your mattress. Plus, with Colder’s DoubleBack program, you get $2 for every $1 you spend on a Restonic mattress to use towards furniture or more mattresses. Buy a new mattress from Colder’s and get furniture, FREE!
Bedroom Set – Save When You’re Young.
You'll move around, plus styles and life will change. When it comes to a bedroom set, choose a timeless budget-friendly option that will fit your space now but can grow with you. Pick a bed frame (for your beautiful new mattress), a dresser, and a nightstand. They don’t need to be high-end (Check out the Derekson Group from the picture below). Use decor items to beautify your space. When you’re ready to settle down into a forever home, up your budget and invest in a quality bedroom set. Then, move your existing set into a guest bedroom.

Living Room Set – Partial Splurge.
Your lovely living room, where you will be…ummm…living! This is where your guests and family will gather. You want it to be a stylish and comfortable space. For your seating area - splurge. Like a mattress, investing in a good sectional or sofa is worth every penny. Come into Colder’s and try out some of our favorite brands like England or Flexteel with tons of custom options. Ask about classic styles in neutrals that will transition well with your growing style. When you are ready for a change, freshen up the look with new paint, throw pillows, or a new rug.
As for your entertainment system, anything will do. Try checking out the Colder’s Clearance Outlet in Oak Creek to find a TV stand and coffee tables. These are pieces you can save money on and DIY at a later date with some paint.
Dining Room Set – Save, Then Splurge.
Until you are in your “forever home”, save. Head over to our Clearance Outlet, look into Colder’s Direct products with free shipping, or shop some of our Special Buy furniture online or in store. We can help you mix and match some fun dining room chairs and a stylish table, or find a matching set to fall in love with in store. When you are ready to invest in your dream dining table, check out Canadel. With the UDesign tool you can customize a table perfect for your space of the highest quality that will last for years to come (see our Why Canadel Blog).
Appliances – SPLURGE.
If you are in the market for the appliance, it is worth it to get one that will do everything you need it to do (and do it well). Many apartments and condos will come with their own appliances, and sometimes even houses will, but when they don’t come to Colder’s to find your perfect-match appliances. We promise it will make traditional chores feel fun for years to come.
