Budget Decorating Tip #9: Splurge When Necessary

7th Sep 2016

Redecorating a home is a fun project for many of the people we encounter each day. Whether you are in the process of remodeling large spaces or are in the mood to update and refresh the decor of a room or two, you are in the right place. Quickfit is here to help you save money while redecorating because decorating on a budget matters. Currently, this blog series has been all about saving money while decorating, but today, we are here to tell you that it is okay to splurge on some big purchases, especially when buying things that need to last a long time.

Spend Money Where Necessary, Save Everywhere Else

Window Treatments

Could you guess that we love window treatments? We encourage all readers and decorators to splurge on window treatments because this is not the type of purchase you should make over and over again. Now, let us be clear: we are in the market for affordable blinds and curtains. It is still possible to get high quality materials without spending an entire fortune (check out the selection online for blinds and curtains), but it is also possible to buy cheap window treatments that will need replaced each and every year; we want to help you avoid this blunder. Splurging on window treatments may seem unnecessary, but there are plenty of reasons to have high-quality blinds and curtains in your home.

Appliances

When it comes to the day-to-day function of the home, it pays to splurge on the appliances that keep your house functioning well. A good refrigerator will last for decades, an efficient dishwasher will clean quicker with less water, and a high-quality HVAC system will keep you comfortable without skyrocketing monthly bills. Pay for the quality upfront, and watch the savings grow throughout the years.

Think 3:1

For every one item you splurge on, you should save on the next three items. This scale will help you keep to your budget while allowing you to spend a little more when you need to. There are plenty more tips to help you decorate on a budget.

Start by shopping online for blinds and curtains to check off your splurge item for the week, and enjoy your new home decor.
