How to get decent furniture on the cheap

How to get decent furniture on the cheap

First of all. Make a plan & roughly measure.

Buying furniture can take ages, especially if you’ve got take something back because it doesn’t fit!

Make a small drawing of the room and any obvious measurements that are needed a decent tape measure is probably a must.

Plan where you spend the most money

Spend money on the things you’re going to be using the most, e.g. spend the most money on your mattress/bed as you’re going to be spending a good part of your life on it.

If you don’t use it every day (e.g. sit on it) then go as cheap as possible!

Free stuff

  • Family / Friends used furniture often will be ideal but you need to be lucky
  • Freecycle | Facebook Groups | Gumtree etc.
  • Remember to haggle, if you’re buying something then see if they will chuck in something else for free

Repurposing

See a skip? Find something that you might be able to use in a different way [ask permission]. The possibilities are endless. Just call yourself an aspiring interior designer and your mates will stop calling you a pikey!

What about Upcycling?

Getting something for free or on the cheap might sound like an awful idea to you but what if you give the items a lick of paint. You can turn even the most 80s piece of furniture into something you would spend £100’s for in a posh London shop!
