Buying on a Budget

The Saving Power of Sets

If you want to save money on your next furniture purchase, then start with a set. What is a set? For bedrooms, dining rooms and some home office furniture, we group items together at a discounted rate. For instance, a dining set might include a table and six chairs. A bedroom set includes a bed, dresser, mirror and nightstand. When you buy these items together, you can save hundreds of dollars compared to the cost of each item individually.

To take advantage of this special pricing, plan ahead. Think about it: right now, you may only need a table and four chairs. But will you want extra seating when it's time to host a holiday dinner?

Break Down Your Budget

There are two types of bargains—ones that save money up front and ones that pay off down the road. Low-priced furniture and mattresses, for example, are a great way to keep your budget down. And while high-end merchandise comes with a higher price tag, it usually needs to be replaced less often. You can find both options at Raymour & Flanigan—but how do you decide?

To make the most of your budget, we recommend allocating the largest portion to furnishing the rooms you use the most. Your living room and bedrooms fall under this category. Look to cut costs in lesser-used areas, like guest rooms and basements.

Know What You're Getting

Another way to save money is to make sure you don't overpay. To know if you're spending too much, it helps to understand what you're actually paying for. Our large selection makes it easy to compare different price points side by side. We also provide detailed construction information, with knowledgeable home furnishing consultants to make sense of it all.
Reversible or flippable cushions can save money by extending the life of your sofa and loveseat. Rotate them regularly to help your seats wear more evenly.

Take Your Time to Pay

Furniture can be difficult to budget for. If you're approved for one of our custom-fit financing options, you can get your furniture right away, then pay it off over time. Splitting your purchase into several weeks, months or even years will help you get the furniture you love without breaking the bank or tying up your credit cards.
If you don't need your furniture right away, you can benefit from our complimentary layaway plan. Between our convenient payment programs and wide range of furniture styles, creating your dream home could be more affordable than you ever thought possible!
Our Lowest Price Guarantee lets you shop with confidence knowing you won't find a better deal anywhere else!
