There are a lot of decisions to be made when you’re selecting furniture and decorative accessories for your home. Regardless of your budget, some contemplation goes into determining what to splurge on and what to save on. Splurges can be made on items you expect to remain a part of the décor for a long time and on items that are both decorative and functional. Sometimes, you might just want to splurge on something that makes your heart happy and your home more personalized.
The sofa is one piece of furniture you don’t want to skimp on. It is a grounding feature of the living room. Accent furniture and decorative accessories can be changed frequently to update the décor. Generally, it’s more expensive to replace a sofa than accent pieces. Choose a style of sofa that’s versatile enough to remain complementary to updates and new trends. Select upholstery that's durable and stain-resistant.
Art plays a vital role in enhancing the beauty and personalization of a room. If you feel the need to justify a splurge on artistic elements, incorporate functional art into your home décor. A decorative fire screen is an ideal example of functional artistic décor. Rugs also fit into the category of functional art. Rugs can define or unify portions of a room décor. Exquisite rugs can be used as wall art in a room.
Lighting is an excellent way to include functional beauty in your décor. There is a vast array of lighting options that will immediately become a statement piece in any room. Let your personality shine with the lighting options you include in your décor.
Although your mattress isn’t a visible part of your décor, it’s an item you should be willing to splurge on. Getting a sufficient amount of restful sleep is essential to your health and can improve your overall mood. A good mattress can help assure that you get quality sleep.
When decorating your home, determine what to splurge on. Stay focused and establish a balance between personal style and practicality.
