Splurge vs. Saving: Where Should You Spend in the Bedroom?

When it comes to interior design, one question most people have is “How can I save money while also decorating my living space?”

 

While there are some places you may want to skip a bit to balance your budget, there are also some elements of design that will save you money in the long run by splurging once for quality.  Our recommendations for splurges and savings in the bedroom include the following.

 

  • Splurge: Bed frame. You should take the time to invest in a sturdy bed frame in a classic style. No matter your style, age or favorite colors, your bed frame should be able to act like a chameleon and play a supporting role to other design choices. You’ll want to look for sturdy, quality bedroom furniture in Levittown PA that will withstand moves, a growing family or anything else life throws your way.

 

  • Save: Trendy lighting. Trendy lighting has recently come back into style, with fairy lights, Chinese lanterns, and icicle lighting strings being put up in bedrooms across America. Have fun with this design choice, but do so on a budget, as these string lightings have a tendency to burn out more quickly than traditional light bulbs.

 

  • Splurge: Mattress. Did you know that you spend about a third of your life sleeping? It’s true! Investing in a comfortable mattress will do more than improve the look and feel of your master bedroom, it will also improve your overall quality of life. Don’t be afraid to spend a little extra time and money finding the right choice for you.

 

  • Save: Unifying artwork. Artwork is a fantastic way to add a pop of color and personality to your bedroom, and there are a ton of affordable options suitable for any taste and aesthetic. Check out your local flea market or artists’ gallery to add a personal touch that’s one-of-a-kind at a lower price than most chain stores!
