Once you’ve moved into a new home, you’re probably going to want to decorate it. Calculating your decorating cost can be a tricky task. You may have a certain amount of money to work with, but how should you spread it around?
You don’t want to end up blowing your entire budget on one room and having to buy low quality furniture and decor to fill out the rest of your house. However, there are a few pieces that you should expect to pay a high cost for – the mattress and the couch. These items should last for a very long time – a good sofa will last upwards of 40 years. A high quality dining room table is a good investment as well since it can be used for any settings.
Window treatments are something you should spend a bit on as well. High quality window treatments will have a huge impact on your overall interior design – cheap window treatments, like plastic blinds, will drag your design down. You can get away with spending less on wall finishes, lighting, rugs and accessories.
