5. Fear of Spending Money
Learning how to spend money wisely on home furnishings and decor is a rite of passage into adulthood. If you’re just starting out and don’t have a clear design sense, it can be wise to experiment with secondhand pieces and inexpensive finds. But if you know what you like and plan to be in your home for a while, don’t be afraid to invest in high-quality pieces that will stand the test of time. Skimp now and you will be replacing things sooner than you think. Invest when you can in pieces you use the most; then round out the rest of your space with cheap, chic accessories or DIY projects.
