When it comes to furniture, the piece that is the most expensive in your home says a lot about your style, preference, and personality. However, that is not a guarantee that the money is well spent. This piece should make you happy, have some sentimental value, timelessness, unique character, and high overall appeal. In my house, my bed checks all those questions. It was purchased through small inheritance and it is a custom made piece of high quality. Eventually, there is a high likelihood that it will be replaced by something even more expensive, but at this point in time, I am really not sure what would that be.
- When justifying the price of an expensive piece of furniture, ask yourself if it’s high-quality, unique, and something you’ll love long term.
- Designers will often combine low-cost items with high-cost items when renovating a space.
- Saving for, and ultimately spending the money on, a high-cost item can be worth the investment if it makes you happy.
“We both renovate in real-time, save our money for home projects, and invest in materials, furniture, and decor that make us happy- and will hopefully withstand the test of time.”
