Hi Okimasu,
Welcome to KingTutOne that is a pretty hard question to answer actually. Why? Because Pharaoh Tutankhamun's tomb was the most intact tomb ever found of a Pharaoh. It is believed that his tomb represents the basic needs of Pharaoh's afterlife. While showing that a New Kingdom Pharaoh lacked little in life.

In the magazine Minerva, The International Review of Ancient Art and Archaeology Volume 15, Number 3 there is an article about an exhibit currently showing at the Antikenmuseum und Sammlung Ludwig in Basel, Switzerland. On pg 12 of the magazine i quote, "Tutankhamn's tomb could be described as being more luxuriously equipped than those of his predecessors; it could even be described as opulent or over-loaded."
On page 11, i quote "... the finds from the other royal tombs of the 18th Dynasty are quite modest...."

i hope this has been a help, it is a rather lopsided question because so few royal tombs have been found intact.
