Since the White House changes occupants pretty frequently, each president has spent loads of money redecorating the building, which is estimated to be worth about $400 million. Donald Trump has spent the most of any president so far– almost $2 million for things like wallpaper, rugs, gold decor, and a $13,000 conference table. But Barack Obama spent only a little less, while others like George W. Bush have spent $500,000 on formal china, and Bill Clinton spent over $300,000 on just one room. Some of the Trump Administration’s most notable changes include renovations to the White House grounds, like when Melania Trump helped design a brand new Rose Garden and 1,200-square-foot tennis pavilion. The First Lady even made changes to the White House’s historic bowling alley.
Some of these presidents pay out of pocket, especially when it comes to redecorating the private residence. Historical foundations sometimes also foot the bill, like for when Michelle Obama spent over $400,000 restoring historic Bellangé furniture from 1817. The White House is filled with expensive antiques and even strange rooms that you might not even know exist, like a game room and 42-seat family movie theater where presidents can request any movie they like. The building also has an entire room full of expensive china, and another full of priceless silverware. Here’s a look inside the White House under the Trump Administration, as well as the incredible amount of money and work that past presidents have dedicated to redecorating.
