You don't need to spend a fortune to have access to our range of beds. The UK market in beds and mattresses is a highly competitive one - something that the growth of online retail has only increased. The good news for those who are shopping on a budget is that this competition has resulted in lower prices, so it is possible to get a great looking bed and a high-performance mattress that you can afford. Set your budget If you're thinking of researching new beds, set your budget first. That way, you won't get carried away when you get to the showroom or begin searching online - which could be easy to do once you see the choices on offer. When you are speaking to a sales person or emailing an online retailer with a query, make it clear that you have a budget and tell them what you are willing to spend. This lets them recommend those products that you can afford. Consider finance deals Some beds are offered with finance deals. If you can manage your finances wisely, then it may be a good idea to take a 0% rate or a "pay nothing for 6 months" deal, to help you spread the cost over several months. If you can pay the full amount as soon as the interest-free or introductory period is over, you won't pay tens of extra pounds in interest and you will have had the chance to save the money you need. Check the small print of the finance deal carefully before you sign anything so that you don't find yourself caught in a high-interest trap later on. Look for online deals The number of online retailers selling beds is growing. These retailers don't need to pay for expensive showrooms or teams of salespeople and they can pass those savings onto customers as discounts on beds and mattresses. There are some great deals to be had online and it always makes sense to look for deals on the type of bed base or mattress that interests you. You could end up saving over ?100 on your new bed. It is possible to buy a good bed and stay within your budget - just take the time to research what's available from a range of suppliers before you commit to buying anything.
