Buying a house is a rewarding experience. All your hard work and planning has paid off, and now it’s time to move in and turn your new house into a home!
The inside of your home is typically a reflection of yourself. When deciding what décor to choose, consider the style you want represented throughout your home. Decide on a unified theme and color scheme to keep the space consistent. Remember, this is a chance to show off your style! Need a little help? Here are some décor tips to think about as you settle into your new home.
It’s often advised to start from the ground up. Your flooring will already be in place, but seeing the ground layer will determine what pieces will work best. For example, if you have hardwood floors, an area rug is needed for sitting spaces such as a great room. The colors in the rug can help determine furniture colors, pillow colors, wall art, and smaller pieces like what to set on the coffee table.
Tie it together
After deciding on decorative pieces, find a paint color to tie everything together and highlight key décor pieces. If there is a main color you want emphasized, paint an accent wall to create a focal point of the room.
Maximize your space
When it comes to decorating, less is more! Overcrowding a room with furniture and accessories can make the room look smaller and feel more cramped. Select a few standout accessories to decorate the room, and properly measure furniture to ensure it fits within the room and complements any existing pieces. If you want to keep blankets, games, or coasters in your great room but don’t want the clutter, consider purchasing an item with built-in storage, such as a coffee table or storage ottoman.
Since it’s your space, personalize it! Hang family photos, art or statement pieces that represent your family personality and values. If DIY projects are up your alley, create a project together as a family to display in your home.
