Are you ready to figure out how to budget for your home project? The first thing I wan’t to touch on, do you know the biggest budgeting mistake most of us make when planning for our room update (which almost ALWAYS causes us to go way over budget)?
We forget to account for the small pieces and decor in the room. 🤦♀️
When thinking about budget, you’d be surprised how many of us just think about the big furniture pieces, and spend our entire allotted budget on that. Then, when it comes to pulling the space together with smaller pieces and finishing touches, there isn’t much left! 🙈
That’s why you end up buying new furniture, then never get around to finishing off the room and truly love it, OR go wayyy over budget without realizing how your room update ended up costing so much. 💸
Believe it or not, the smaller pieces could account for 20% of your total room budget, so make sure you account for this up front before shopping for furniture!
One thing my clients love is that I take their entire budget and turn it into the room of their dreams, which means they don’t even have to think about this part (plus, my trade discounts usually save them a TON). More time, energy, and money given right back to you! Now that’s a reason to celebrate. 🎉🎉🎉
Have you ever had a project go over budget (I mean we all have, right?)? Comment below and tell me about it!
