Fill Your Home With Love Then Furniture
Moving up to a new, larger home is exciting. Finally, you are out of the shoe box apartment or overfull two-bedroom. Each of the kids has their own room, and you could play basketball in the living room. It’s great; there’s just one problem: You have a lot of new space to fill and not much furniture to fill it.
Moving can be an expensive process, and going on a shopping spree right after you move in to decorate your new home might not be the best idea.
Here are a few tips for filling all that new space with furniture, without depleting your bank account and stressing too much.
Get Used to Your New Home before Buying Anything
No one expects your new house to magazine perfect right after you move in. So, why rush anything? Take some time to get a feel for your new home and decide exactly how you want to decorate. What furniture will work best and where? What style of home décor do you like? It will come to you, and you won’t run the risk of splurging on something you don’t need just because you feel pressured to fill an empty space.
Set a Budget and Stick to It
Don’t go into debt or max out your credit cards trying to fill up your new house. You know what you can spend, so set a budget and stick to it. It’s okay if you only buy a few pieces at a time or need to save up for a month to buy that sofa. You’ll enjoy your new furniture that much more knowing you won’t have any trouble paying the mortgage or the bills that month.
Concentrate on High Traffic Areas First
What rooms in your house get the most use? Those are the rooms you should tackle first. So, rather than concentrate on the formal dining room, take care of the living room, kitchen and bedrooms first. Just approach the process of filling your home one room at a time, but keep the momentum going. It’s a process.
Don’t Overdo It
Buying new furniture for your home is exciting, and it’s easy to get carried away. Try to avoid letting the rush overtake you. Make sure that you don’t make your new, larger home fill just a crowded as your old home by doing too much. Remember, you bought a new home because you wanted more space. Keep learning more here!
