Budget for Each Room


It is so hard to decorate your new living space.  And not only is it challenging to find perfect pieces, but it is also expensive.  My husband and I try to keep costs down by budgeting for each room.

So after all of your furniture and things from your move have been delivered, then get settled in.  Live in your new home and see what you need day by day.  And do lots of online shopping and searching.  My husband and I are always online looking at different pieces of furniture.  We also make many visits to local stores.  Shopping around is important so you get an idea of what you like-it also helps make sure you get an awesome deal on your things.

To budget for furnishing rooms, it is best to look at what you need for each room and set an actual budget.  For example, we need EVERYTHING for our master bedroom.  We need a headboard, footboard, dresser, two night stands, a chest, etc.  To decide on a fair budget, I advise that you do research online and in stores to see what an average going rate is to furnish each room.  Then, I try to stay in the average/below average range.

    We just bought a house in November. We are currently doing the same thing. It’s so hard to set a budget unless you make an actual list of things you want/need for each room. Then you can set a realistic budget. We need to do a kitchen remodel (yes need), so that room will have a higher budget than our daughters’ bedrooms which only need paint and some furnishings to match. Thank you for sharing!

      Thank you for sharing your story. It is overwhelming when you move and there is so much to do-and then there’s the money and work that need to go into it all! It helps me to make better financial decisions for the house and for our family when I write it all down to make sure I am not going over the budget and getting all the items we need. Good luck with your remodel!
