Decorating your home can be pricey. But that’s not to say that beautiful spaces have to break the bank! Here’s our advice for where you should splurge and where you can get away with saving when it comes to home decor.
Splurge – Since dining chairs are used frequently and are in a high traffic area, we recommend investing in ones that will hold up. Also, performance fabrics are a major bonus here!
Save – Side tables are usually only used as a place to put down your drink and make the room feel cohesive, so you can get away with going lower-end for these.
Splurge – This is a piece that you use almost everyday, so you want it to be comfortable and good quality. We suggest going custom with this piece so that it will stand the test of time.
Save – No need to break the bank when it comes to consoles! They most likely will just serve as a decorative piece so you don’t need to worry about wear and tear.
Splurge – It can be rather easy to spot the difference between a high quality vs a low quality rug when it comes to appearance and material. You don’t need to go all out, but I suggest investing a little more here.
Save – These are often made up of one or two solid materials (wood, metal, stone, etc), which means that you can get away with saving on these as they are rather durable despite the cost. Plus, you can always dress them up with some accessories to create a higher-end look.
Splurge – This is something that you use every single day and it should be able to last for years to come. No doubt about it.
Splurge – Window treatments, whether that be drapery or shades, can make or break a room. It’s so important to invest in custom window treatments to really make the space feel polished and cohesive.
Save – Nightstands don’t need to be a big investment when decorating your bedroom. I’ve found tons of super cute bedside tables at vintage/ thrift shops that are high in quality and low in price!
Splurge – Sure, there are a lot of cool art prints out there that cost almost nothing. But when it comes to finding a statement piece, I suggest splurging more. Finding the perfect piece of art takes time and is very subjective, so when you find something you love I say buy it!
Save – Unless there is a piece that is super unique that you fell in love with, I say to cut back when it comes to investing in accessories. There are so many beautiful objects available at a reasonable price.
