Four Home Decor Items That are Always Worth the Splurge

When you’re decorating your home, you want it to reflect your personality and your life. We’ve all seen beautiful homes that look like a hotel, perfect and pristine. But a perfect room full of expensive objects shouldn’t be your goal. You should design your home to reflect your life. Nonetheless, some home décor items are always worth a splurge.

One thing that brings you joy

When decorating your home, you want your space to make you feel happy every time you walk in the door. One way to do that is to incorporate at least one piece that you absolutely love and can’t live without. Do you have a sculpture that brings you joy? Or maybe you have a gorgeous chair that makes you smile every time you sit down to read a book? These items, the things that you love from the moment you see them, are always worth a splurge.

A quality hand-made rug

A rug can bring a room together or set it apart. A rug can add texture and color, define a space, and set the style and mood for your entire home. Your rug selection is definitely a place where you should splurge, selecting an heirloom quality rug that will last for generations.

High-performance upholstery

While everyone wants a beautiful home, you also need a functional home. There’s nothing worse than creating a beautiful room, only to have your family, kids, pets, and guests make it look worn in just a few years. When you select fabrics for high-traffic areas and well-used rooms like your family room, you don’t want to skimp. Select high-performance upholstery that will withstand plenty of wear and tear and look gorgeous for years to come.

Unique items from your travel

As part of creating a home that reflects your personality, make room to share unique or one-of-a-kind items from your travels and your life. Your home should tell your story and invite conversation. What better way to share yourself with friends and family than to share your travels through your décor? So, when you’re off on the adventure of a lifetime, be sure to splurge on something to remind you of your journey that you can display at home.
