5 Home Items Worth Splurging On

If you’re like me, you’d rather spend your hard earned money on experiences and adventures instead of material possessions. When you are home, however, you want it to be your sanctuary, right? It should be a place you feel totally comfortable, instead of just a cold place to lay your head for the night. It should have a little personality and lot of functionality. And because you probably don’t want to have to run out and buy replacements all the time (for the sake of your bank account, not contributing to our consumerist society, and doing your part to help the environment), there are a few things that really are worth investing in. I’ve done the research for you, and found the best of the best. Here are 5 home items worth splurging on.

The Dondra Queen Bed from CB2


1. The Dondra Teak Bed from CB2 – This beautiful, versatile, and timeless bed is sustainably made and eliminates the need for a box spring and frame. The headboard is made of teak planks reclaimed from homes no longer in use in India. Its solid mango wood base is made to last. This sleek, modern, low-profile bed will go with any décor elements you choose through the years making it my number one pick for home items worth splurging on.

2. The Avec Sofa with Brass Legs from CB2 – This retro couch comes in 25 colors, and its size makes it perfect for big design in a small space. It’s got slim lines, cutback retro arms, and a low tufted back on brass stiletto legs. The frame is made with certified sustainable hardwood that’s kiln-dried to prevent warping and the seat cushion is soy-based polyfoam and fiber.

3. The Mid-Century Desk from West Elm – This desk provides plenty of space on top and three acacia-veneer drawers. The aesthetic will stand the test of time and let your home accessories do the talking. It’s made of FSC-certified, solid, eucalyptus wood. It’s also made in a Fair Trade Certified facility, so your conscience will be as clean as the lines on this lovely piece of furniture!

The Move-IN Bundle From Brook Linen

4. Quality Bedding from BrooklinenThis Move-In Bundle has everything you need to outfit that new bed of yours. It includes a Hardcore Sheet Set in the weave of your choice, 2 Plush Pillows and a Comforter in the weight of your choice and in the material of your choice. This set includes the company’s best sellers and comes with a 60-night, risk-free trial. If you aren’t completely satisfied, they’ll take it back for free, no questions asked.

Seascape by Krispen Spencer for Crate and Barrel

5. Original Art Pieces– Show off your personal style by investing in a few quality art pieces that will appreciate in value. Seascape by Crate and Barrel is one of my favorites. (The company’s exclusive partnership with UGallery makes one-of-a-kind works from emerging artists available for all of us to purchase.) This particular colorful, abstract painting was created by pouring fluid acrylic paint onto the canvas. During the process, forms appear, disappear, and reappear as the wet colors swirl together. The result is a gorgeous conversation piece that goes with perfectly in any room of the home.

    I love that desk and completely agree a good splurge now and again is totally worth it!

  • I read you shouldn’t skimp on anything between you and the ground – mattresses, shoes etc. That advice has generally served me well!

  • Lucy Cotterill

    Definitely agree you shouldn’t scrimp on a decent bed or matress- sleep is so important!.

  • A bed is definitely worth the investment because you spend so much time in it.

  • Super Busy Mum

    That sofa & desk? I’m actually in love. Stunning pieces.

  • I really love the desk from West Elm! I’m in need of a desk but I’m between wanting a desk and wanting a vanity that I use as both a desk and for doing my make up and hair

  • Katrina Downie

    I totally agree with some needed home splurges such as beds when they get used as much as they do they should be good

    A bed and a sofa are definitely worth investing in. They are were you spend most of your time after all.

  • A good bed and nice bedding are very important things when it comes to your home x

  • Cynthia Nicoletti

    I like the linens. They look really nice and comfortable. Have to check them out.

  • I would love to invest in original art pieces for my room. As I am a huge fan of street art I would love their pieces blown up for my house.

  • I have recently splurged on a Chesterfield armchair – its to be my reading nook in red leather with a knitted throw. I cannot wait for it to arrive. Next will be a desk so I can work more comfortably from home.

  • Chelf Chelfdom

    I agree, a good bed and lovely bedding is a must-have when it comes to turning a house into a home. Not sure I would invest in a very expensive desk at the moment, but everything else, yes please!

  • I have to say that a bed/ mattress and great bedding are always 2 things I invest my money in to since you spend around 8 hours a night (if I’m lucky) in them. Good quality mattresses make the world of difference to your sleep quality and therefore your overall health.

  • Cara Harbstreet

    I agree, investing in high quality bedding makes a huge difference! We aren’t at that point to make a complete upgrade yet, but when that time comes I’ll keep this brand in mind!

  • Aine

    Such a sucker for spending on experiences, but I am keen to make my room more “homey” so great tips

  • Karyn Locke

    I definitely agree about the bedding. I don’t want to lay in itchy, uncomfortable linens for 8+ hours a night!

  • Dada KS

    Yes I rather spend money on experiences and travels but that Dondra teak bed look so comfortable and I belive we need a great bed for a good rest so it is important to spend a little more money for a good night sleep!

  • I definitely splurge on quality furniture and appliances. I keep things for a very long time so having it last is important to me.

  • These do look like some great items! I’d go for some art items. The sofa doesn’t look fluffy enough for me. I know one with puffy cushions and a leg rest.
