Cheap Daybeds – The Secrets To Finding Affordable Day Beds

By Sadie A Peterson

If you’re thinking you need an extra bed in your already too-cramped house or you want to convert your guest room into an office/guest room combo, a daybed may be just the answer you’re looking for. And it is possible to make this happen without it costing you an arm and a leg.

While price is important in purchasing cheap daybeds, there are other things to consider. By doing a little research on daybeds and spending some time up front, you can find many good deals among the discount daybeds out there. Here are some tips to help in your quest for affordable daybeds.

1. Keep Your Options Open

To avoid possible disappointment when your “perfect” daybed doesn’t fit your budget, begin your search with a list of features you feel you need or want in the daybed. What kind of frame, what color, what type of trundle?

If it turns out that all the daybeds you like are outside your price range, remember that an “affordable daybed” includes not just the bed itself but also the bedding. If you need to compromise on the daybed that you choose, make up for it with the daybed bedding. Finding cheap daybeds often requires creativity!

2. Visit Online Shops

In your search for cheap daybeds, one of the first places you should look is online. In order to attract more customers, many businesses now have an online store. Since space is not an issue with an online store, you’ll often find a better selection. And to encourage buying, it’s not uncommon to find online-only discounts.

Not seeing exactly what you’re looking for? Try contacting the store owner via email or phone and ask if they have more than what’s offered online. When comparing daybed prices, though, keep in mind that some stores offer free shipping while others don’t.

3. Look For Clearance Daybeds

When you first enter a furniture store in search of a daybed, you are most likely to only see the newest and most expensive models. So it is to your advantage to keep moving towards the back of the store. This may end up giving you the best price on cheap day beds with trundles as well as those without.

If you’re willing to buy a floor model or a “scratch and dent” type item, be sure to ask for a good deal. Many store owners are open to a buyer who is interested in taking merchandise off their hands at any price. You won’t know if you don’t ask!

4. Don’t Rush The Process

In order to find a great deal that you will be happy with, be sure to allow adequate time to do lots of comparison shopping. If you rush the process too much, you will end up with something you hate and regret having bought.

Whether you order online and have it shipped to your door or whether you shop locally and arrange your own delivery, cheap daybeds are easy enough to find with just a little bit of extra effort.
