Calling all parents! This time of year, one certainty can be counted upon each year like clockwork – back to school! Whether you’ve got kids in preschool, elementary, middle, high school or college, this reality is inevitable. Back to school is already a stressful time as it is. Especially when you’ve got college-age kids to move! Why make it any harder than it has to be? That’s exactly why we’re highlighting some of our favorite affordable back to school furniture pieces for college kids, teens and young adults!

Every year in July and August, our showroom is flooded by customers looking for budget-friendly back to school furniture solutions. Here at Woodstock Furniture & Mattress Outlet we want to make the back to school season a breeze for you. If you recall, we posted an article on decorating small spaces just a few weeks ago. Be sure to give it a quick read as it definitely applies to furnishing and decorating dorm rooms and small apartments!

Our Favorites

One of our favorite inexpensive tips for beds, is to go with just a headboard instead. This also saves hassle on moving day! We’re particularly fond of the Vintage Metal Headboard by Liberty Furniture. Starting at only $119, it is available in 5 color variations (some of them by special order), Twin through King, and is also available as a whole bed if you’d prefer.

If you’re looking to buy a mattress to go with that new bed without breaking the bank, we highly recommend the MLily Harmony Gel Memory Foam Mattress. Available from only $479 for a Twin, this affordable mattress in a box is incredibly comfortable and can be easily transported until you’re ready to unbox it at move-in!

Obviously, dorms and student apartments are tight on space. So sectional sofas are out. However, a loveseat, armchair and ottoman might be a great fit for a small living area. We think the Calicho Collection by Ashley is perfect!

Lastly, we can’t forget about the desks! For college dorm use, we recommend something modern and streamlined. The Raventown Home Office Desk is very sleek and fits the bill perfectly. And at only $299, it’s an absolute steal!
