Beds made of wood--UK vs Oz

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I need a king size or larger bed and there is a sale near me now. OH is against buying furniture but I'm not too sure. Any idea how much a good quality bed in solid wood costs in OZ??? I have trawled a few websites but they dont put the prices on in most. Would love to hear from those who have made the purchase or looked into it there? Also is the quality similar or is UK stuff better?

Super A mart do some decent big chunky wooden ones and i think theyre offering them on sale on TV at the moment for about $399 for double.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

We paid $1600 for a queen (5') bed frame + two (largish) bedsides. We already had the mattress, so it would've been a bit more if we'd had to get that. It's all solid timber, so didn't seem like a bad deal to us. I'm sure we could've found something cheaper, but we waited so long to set up house properly while getting sorted to come out here, we've pretty much just saved up and bought things we really like (they'll all have to last us now!).

One advantage of buying in Oz is you will have your bed as soon as you buy one rather than having to wait for your belongings to arrive.

These stores may or may not be available where you are going to, but it may give you an guide of what is available.

Good luck persuading the OH ..... :wink:

 

 

OooH Shoes--they seem to have good furniture but as usual no prices--damn frustrating it is! I'm going to Sydney so I'm sure there will be a store nearby.

 

As Little Sarah said if I can get a good bed for $1500 that should be ok.

Over here there I spotted a nice dark wood sleigh bed that sells at around 1300 pounds going for £857. Would love to buy it but if I can find similar there there is no point in shipping it over.

Check out Ebay to get a good idea - hubby and I bought a 2nd hand suite (bed, bedside tables, big chest of drawers and a mirror) for ~$700 :)

 

Looking for other sites for you ....

 

Personally I'd wait and get one over here - they really have some stunning furniture :)
