Decorating a home is one of the most exciting parts of moving into a new space. New furnishings can also revitalize an old space. Unfortunately, completely redoing a room can often cost a small fortune. It would obviously be ideal to walk into expensive home décor stores and pick out everything you want, but for many of us, that’s simply not a reality. Fortunately, you can still create a stylish space without spending tons of money. You simply need to know when to splurge on high end furniture and when to opt for less expensive pieces. Read on for some tips on which pieces are worth spending a little more on.
As the focal point and main seating area of your room, your sofa should come from a high-end furniture store. In your search for the perfect piece, look for high-quality materials like hardwood and hand-tied spring construction. Go for a classic style as opposed to something trendy, as you can reinvent your room multiple times with accessories and still keep the same sofa. Still not convinced that you should splurge? Keep in mind that a low-quality sofa could actually negatively affect your back health, and that a high-quality version lasts an average of 15 years longer than a lower-quality version.
