New house... new furniture!!!

Hi guys,

We have just purchased our first house and, as with most people in our situation, have had to pay loads on fees etc. and not got much left for furniture... however, we still want it to look fairly nice.

Can anyone suggest anywhere that has something similar to these items, but obviously at a cheaper price. We have tried IKEA, Argos etc. but no luck so far so hopefully one of you may now an online store or something that has items similar to these but at a cheaper price. The main thing for us is the colour, not really the style... although both would be nice but I realise this may be asking a lot!

Thanks

Bed: http://www.next.co.uk/shopping/homeware/bedroom/22/5

Microwave: http://www.marksandspencer.com/gp/product/B000JTSI1A/sr=1-2/qid=1188153480/ref=sr_1_2/202-9877417-4936632?ie=UTF8&node=59037031&m=A2BO0OYVBKIQJM&keywords=&mnSBrand=core&size=9&rh=&page=

Again, these items are expensive and I realise it will be hard to find an exact match for cheaper (I have tried.. my girl has expensive taste!) but anything similar colourwise and style/shape would be appreciated, thanks.

OK, it doesn't look the same, it's white, but it's still a microwave and grill in the same machine and LG is a good brand and it's a bargain for £49.99 + £3.95 delivery.

This one £129 from John Lewis where there are various discount vouchers available on here, and it looks a bit fancier

The coffee table seems to be reasonably priced for such a unique design and wood.
Something similar:

Companies like Dreams are always having sales and offers on all types of beds.

Microwave: http://www.qed-uk.com/electricals/product/samsung/bce1197b.html?&ird=1415 +p&p £7.99 (Order through Quidco for some cashback.)

Thanks for the replies guys. I've found a Hinachi microwave off this site that looks similar for £47, so I think we're ok with that.

Regarding the coffee table, I agree it is reasonably priced for a design and wood. We're looking for something similar style and colour (which doesnt necessarily mean same wood, stained/veneer will do) for a lot cheaper.

Thanks for the info on Dreams, will keep a look out on their website for some deals.

hi theres a similar nest of tables on the littlewoods site for £219. there are lots of voucher codes posted on here already where you can get up to 20% off the price plus £30. so you might be able to get it for about £154 (sorry if any of this is wrong its my fisrt time using)

hope you get one soon:)

Ooh I must say that coffee table is very nice indeed. Makes me want it now!

Also keep an eye on Wallace Sacks as they do have some lovely discounts floating about.

when i first moved out to rent at first i found the easiest way to do it , and i will again is to buy well not the best....go to asda and tesco for alot of electrical appliances, bedding etc,

i bought a bed frame off ebay for a fiver and got a decent matress from costco

it doesnt matter at first if u pay pence it will literally be easier to replace later, just dont assume u need everything expensive like some people do. every room perfect etc big big mistake

Good find daforr and a good price with the vouchers. Ordering through Quidco would also give 6% cashback.

Saw silver LG Microwave reduced to £35 in our local Sainsbury's at the weekend. Might be Nationwide . . . ?

Also, don't forget to get a 10% off card for Focus DIY if there is one near you - they do have some furniture and beds etc but I'm sure you'll be needing paint, curtain rails etc. You just need to take in proof that you have recently purchased a house (solicitors letter or similar) to get 10% off all their products for a year.

Hawkio's right, when I first moved out I wanted leather suite, a dyson (brand new at the time) everything had to be stainless steel and I just ended up in wads of debt and my tastes changed so quickly it now seems pointless.

Wilkinsons does a coffee table fairly similar although it's oak effect so not as dark. Not sure if they do it on the website but most stores have a furniture bit now.

As for the microwave the smartscan gadget seems like a good idea but as far as I know the only foods I've come across with the special barcodes on have been on some of the more expensive products in the Birds Eye range.

Also do you really need the combi micro/grill? I've never met anyone who actually uses this function or uses the microwave for anything other than ready meals and heating up beans including me.... :giggle:

Again, thanks for the advice guys.

Regarding the comment about the microwave, I must say that we are looking for something in the same colour and style, nothing to do with the actual microwave itself as I am the same thought process as you... it just heats up baked beans!

We have now found a coffee table and microwave thanks to this site and some shrewd dealing on ebay with someone who we found was selling the coffee table we want and was 5mins down the road.. so lucky!

but any further advice on other furniture deals would be really appreciated, such as beds, wardrobe, drawers etc.
