How to finance your purchases?
Depending on the brands you purchase, the average cost of renovating your home is $50,000 – $60,000. Furniture and appliances like lights will probably set you back an extra $10,000 – $15,000. If you need to take up a loan to finance your purchase, renovation loans often do not give you the cash upfront, hence you may not be able to use it for lights shopping, depending on whether your interior designer includes it in their quotation. If so, you might wish to consider a personal loan instead. Do note that personal loans have slightly higher interest rates than renovation loans, but you get the cash flexibility. Our friends at Singsaver have compiled the best personal loans for you to check out.
When shopping for your home, do keep in mind to prioritize and focus on the essentials first. Leave the ‘nice-to-haves’ for later, for it’s best to not spend beyond your means. When buying your lights, we also suggest using credit cards that give you rebates, so you get extra savings. Every little bit of savings can go a long way!
We hope our lighting shopping guide has helped you in your preparation for your new home. Do share it with your friends who need it. Stay tuned for more guides, and in the meantime, do check out our other guides below.
