Want that modern looking home for less? Look no further than ‘Splurge Vs Save’!
This week I’m looking for ideas for Munch’s new bedroom furniture. This will be her first ‘big bed’, as she has been sleeping in a toddler bed up until now. I already knew we wanted white furniture and after scouring online, I fell in love with the idea of a simplified white child’s sleigh bed.
Child’s Sleigh Bed Splurge
I love House of Fraser and spied this ‘Adorable Tots Caprice Sleigh Bed‘, with trundle bed (great idea!), but it was a staggering £999! Granted they assemble it for you and it includes the trundle bed and both mattresses, but still. I knew I could find a cheaper alternative without too much compromise.
Child’s Sleigh Bed Save
There was no way I was forking out almost £1000 on a kids single bed. I have a whole room to decorate! So I scoured around and came across a nice example at Argos (including mattress) on sale for £185, but not only was it sold out, the reviews weren’t great. There were comments talking about the quality of the finish on the bed. So my search continued.
I found a near exact match from The Children’s Furniture Company. Their Nevis Sleigh bed was on offer for only £199 (down from £219). They have a trundle option for £99 (which I didn’t go for) and I picked up a good quality single mattress from Argos, who always have a deal on branded mattresses for, £71. So all in for the child’s sleigh bed and trundle, plus the 2 mattresses, I’d have been £440! That’s a massive saving of £559!
However I just opted for the sleigh bed and Argos mattress for £270, as that fits out needs at the moment.
