It's difficult, but not impossible, to find furniture that fits both your taste and your budget. You can save money if you buy during certain times of the year when deals are plentiful.
Here's when to buy that used Craigslist couch or a new patio set to update your outside area.
When Is The Best Time to Buy Furniture?
The ideal time to buy furniture is determined by the type of furniture. Winter and summer are the greatest times to buy indoor furniture, while July 4th and Labor Day are the best times to buy outdoor furniture. Deals on bespoke furniture are available at a variety of times.
Indoor Furniture: Winter, Summer
The furniture business usually operates on a biannual basis. Every spring and autumn, new types of indoor furniture hit store shelves, so if you want to get a good price, start searching in the months leading up to the arrival of the new models.
That implies you should shop at the end of the winter (January and February) or the end of the summer (July and August) (August and September). During these months, retailers will discount their old stock to make place for the new trends. Weekends around Presidents Day and Labor Day are particularly favorable for sales.
Custom Furniture: Varies
Those times, however, only apply to ready-made furniture. Jerry Epperson, the head of furniture market research at investment bank Mann, Armistead & Epperson, makes a point of separating pre-made from custom furniture.
“Getting something built specifically for you isn't that much more expensive,” he explains. Custom furniture, on the other hand, is created on demand, so you won't get the same type of discounts that shops provide when they need to sell their older pre-made inventory. There's no need to wait for sales if you're interested in bespoke furniture.
Outdoor Furniture: Summer
When it comes to outdoor furniture, the greatest deals are usually found between the Fourth of July and Labor Day.
Between the middle of March and the middle of April, new outdoor furniture enters shop shelves, and businesses aim to clear out their stock by August.
General Furniture-Buying Tips
Furniture is a major investment, so be patient if you can't locate the ideal sofa at the perfect price. “In the furniture industry, there's always a sale.” If the item you want isn't on sale right now, it could be in a few months.
We recommend that you take your time and visit several stores. This will not only assist you in locating the greatest bargains and rates, but it will also allow you to create a distinct look for your home.
