Choose classic pieces
Going for classic pieces when furnishing your new area is always the best way to go. Purchasing furniture and furnishing your room with pieces that are “In trend” look great for the first year but these items may not still be in style in 2 years which will make you want to go out and purchase all new furniture. This can cost you a ton of money in the long run.
Spend the extra money on quality flooring. This will not only increase the resale value of your home and save you money on repairs and upkeep, but it also looks and feels better. Yes, the initial investment will cost more then maybe you are wanting to spend, but it pays off and will cost you left to maintain.
