Investment Strategy

October 13, 2015

While many of us would love to redecorate our whole home top to bottom, it’s more often a fantasy than a reality. Instead, we must prioritize time and resources and plan how to invest our decorating dollars. Here are some tips on where to spend and where to save when it comes to designing your space.

WORTH THE INVESTMENT

LEATHER
Investing in top-quality leather pays big dividends, because leather wears in—not out. While few items gain in beauty and value over time, quality leather certainly does. Investing in leather furnishings yields higher-quality hides, a wider variety of colors and styles, and more durable frame construction.

SOFAS
It’s the centerpiece of your living space and sets the tone for your décor—the sofa is king. From watching TV to entertaining, this piece of furniture gets plenty of use, so invest proportionately. The higher-quality sofa you select, the more fabric and design options you can expect, as well as finer craftsmanship, comfort life and durability.

DINING ROOM
People keep their dining room furnishings for years—when they invest in quality. Choose a table that fits your room, entertaining style and design aesthetic. Look for solid woods, rich finishes and fine detailing. Evaluate the chairs for style, comfort, and durability. Ask about features such as touch lighting, lined drawers, and plate racks when choosing a china
cabinet, sideboard or buffet.

BUDGET-CONSCIOUS

Once you’ve decided what you’ll spend the most on, consider inexpensive ideas like these to revive your home décor.

ACCENTS AND ACCESSORIES
You don’t need to spend a fortune to get quality home accents and accessories. New accent pieces can change the entire feel of a room. You can use eye catching colors and shapes. From mirrors to vases,these pieces can add to the appeal of your interior without breaking the bank.
