Home furnishing: Why it’s worth saving for the very best
Interior designer Zimkita Sidumo shares her tips on which items you should invest in for your home
Starting a new home is exciting – whether it is your first flat after leaving the parental nest, or finally building a place together as a young couple.
But then comes the big headache: how to furnish it. With all the necessities one needs to buy, skimping might seem a good idea – but going frugal on big-ticket items might cost you more in the long run as you are forced to replace furniture sooner than if you had invested in better quality pieces.
“We always advise clients to invest in their furniture,” says Zimkita Sidumo, co-owner and interior designer at Blaque Pearl Lifestyle. “You want to purchase quality items that will last you without needing replacement after a couple of years. You can be more prudent when spending on decorative items such as cushions, throws and accessories.”..
