Moving into a new home is a monumental occasion, but it can be overwhelming for many reasons. Knowing how to decorate your home – without breaking the bank – can be hard. We got you covered with these easy steps to help transform your new house into your “now home”.
Prioritize, Evaluate & Organize
Decorating a new home is all about less is more. It is okay to throw away what you don’t need or no longer want. This starts with packing up your prior home and moving into your new one. Prioritize a few old treasures you would be lost without and say goodbye to unnecessary items. Now is the time to evaluate everything and make sure the things you’re keeping will have a purpose in your new space – this will help you avoid a house full of clutter. Organize what you save by where it will be placed in your new house – if you can't place something, there's a good chance you don't need it.
Decorating a new house doesn't always require buying all new things. Rather than purchasing new furniture, upgrade the items you already own with colorful pillows, modern lamps or stylish new hardware or paint. Take your current couch and add some jazzy throw pillows, lamps and a coat of paint in a striking color palette.
Paint makes all the difference
Never underestimate how paint can transform a room. If you’re after a modern feel, choose neutral colors, and then brighten it up with colorful furniture and plants. If your vibe is more playful or dramatic, choose your favorite color and then fill the room with neutrals. Either way, paint is an economical choice that offers maximum impact.
Don'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 money you were going to spend on renovating the bathroom isn't quite as important as beefing up the kitchen and dining area for maximum entertaining purposes. And you may figure out that the living room loveseat would work much better in the primary bedroom and the downstairs foyer table may work better in a guest room.
One of the best things about purchasing and moving into a new home is that you can make it yours! Enjoy the process. For more information on the finest homes in the Palm Beaches, contact a Tauber Real Estate Services specialist at 561-626-4633 today.
