Decorating your first home
Moving into your first home is liberating and incredibly exciting however, it can also be daunting due to the large amount of decisions you must make when it comes to decorating. Whether you have just moved into one of the new homes Midhurst or a more traditional Victorian property in Petworth, turning your house into a home always involves a large amount of decision making.
So, now that you have finally broken away from your parents’ apron strings and you have plucked up the courage – and the money to purchase your very first house, it’s time to begin turning it into a welcoming home.
Whilst moving into your first home is exciting, daunting and extremely exhilarating – it’s also really expensive. So, it’s important to remember that you can decorate your home as cheaply as you want to and here’s how:
Start with your bedroom
We are all guilty of spending more time in our bedroom than any other room in the house; it’s where we sleep after all! So, the bedroom should be the very first place you begin your decorating. Begin by purchasing some gorgeous new bedding – don’t skimp on the thread count; that really makes a difference!
Still have money in your pocket? Why not paint the walls? Try to ensure your paint complements your choice of bedding and any accessories you already have.
Don’t buy it all at once
You should live in the house before you start making any elaborate purchases. How you think you’re going to use the house and how you actually do are two very different things. For example, you may have set aside a hefty budget to renovate the bathroom; but after a couple of months of living in the house, you may decide that the money is better spent in the kitchen. Be careful with your money and think before you buy!
Tie everything together with colour
Don’t panic if all of your furniture doesn’t match – if you have a really old style couch but an IKEA coffee table. The best and most economical way to ensure everything works together is to tie it all together using a bit of colour. So, add some blue cushions to your sofa and blue coasters to your coffee table – sorted!
With these quick tips in mind, redecorating your first home can be fun and cheap!
