Splurge vs Save: Home Décor

This article was published on February 25th, 2019

When you are decorating your home there are certain areas that you should splurge on, and items where you can actually save money on. We all have a budget, especially when it comes to home décor; continue reading to know when you should splurge and when you should save.

Splurge: Mattress:

There is nothing more important than finding that perfect mattress, and if that means spending a little extra to find it, then so be it. Imagine sleeping on a mediocre mattress every night, and waking up stiff and unrested?

Save: Seasonal items:
Whether they are for Christmas, Ramadan, Eid or Easter, seasonal items are just that – items and decorations that you use once a year. If stored correctly, these items should last you a few years, and you don’t even have to spend much on them to start with.

Splurge: Couch:

Because it’s the second most used piece of furniture at home, you should also consider investing in a comfortable and durable couch. When you do choose a splurge-worthy couch, remember to choose a neutral colored fabric and in good quality; if you do end up moving, you want the couch to come with you, don’t you?

Save: Bedding:
You will always be able to find sheets and bedding at a discounted price, so there is no need to spend too much money on this. Keep in mind, that washing the sheets regularly will also cause some wear and tear; another reason to not splurge on bedding.

Splurge: Vacuum:

Quality vacuums work better and longer, and will save you a lot of headaches! A quality vacuum will make it much easier to clean your house.

Save: Trendy Accessories:
Trends come and go very quickly, and while there is nothing wrong with adding a trendy accessory to your home, try not to spend too much on it, as most likely you will end up recycling it or putting it away in a few months.

Splurge: A tool set:

There is nothing more irritating than trying to fix something at home, or planning a DIY project and then realizing that your tools have broken down or cannot be used. This is why a quality tool set is important to have around the house.

Save: Art
While no one likes white plain walls, but there are a lot of things that you can add there that will not cost an arm and a leg. Unless you are investing in authentic paintings (which not most people will do), you can opt for wallpaper or a colored wall, or even paint the area yourself.
