Hi all! ♡
On today’s post I will be giving you some tips on decorating your first home to make your home feels ‘home sweet home’.
First, clean your old place. This critical first step will not only make your current things easier to pack up, but it will put you miles ahead during move-in. Be strong and rid yourself of anywhere from 25 percent to 50 percent of your old stuff: wobbly furniture in the attic, faulty appliances in the garage, questionable accessories you received as gifts. This is the perfect time to start over.
Next, Start with the bedroom. It’s where you’ll be spending almost a third of your time when you’re at home, after all. If you’re on a tight budget, opt for new bedding first, but don’t skimp on thread count! Buy as well as you can afford to spend in this area — it makes a huge difference. If you have a little more money, paint the bedroom walls to complement your new bedding. Still more cash in your pocket? Add coordinating window treatments. Early risers should opt for a lighter palette of colors and more translucent treatments. Night owls who like to sleep in will probably likely be more satisfied with deeper tones and more substantial coverings that block out the light. If you’re really ready to splurge, buy that bed you’ve always dreamed about. And choose carefully. It should mirror your personality, fit your room comfortably and stay with you for years.
Third, decide on the decor. You can decorate your home to your taste. Add some tapestry or rug, maybe? For the pictures, instead of covering your home with tons of individual frames, you can use digital photo frames such as Aura frames to put your favourite memories inside. Aura frames is a smart digital frames that automatically displays the best photos from your phone. it can be paired with your iOS or android phone, then you can use the aura frames app with your phone to upload the photos.
Fourth, on’t buy everything all at once. Live in your new house for at least two months before you make any significant purchases. How you think you’re going to use the house and how you actually live in the house are commonly two different things. Maybe that $5,000 you were going to spend on renovating the bathroom isn’t quite as important as renovating the kitchen and dining area for maximum entertaining purposes. And you may figure out that the living room sofa would work much better in your bedroom and the bedroom’s chaise will work better in your living room.
