One of the main reasons people can’t wait to own their homes is so they can design it the way they want. But when it comes to actually decorating you can get a bit lost on where to start. Just remember to add your personality and don’t get too caught up in making sure everything matches perfectly.
Make a detailed plan of what it is you want your new home to look like. Think about the overall mood you want to portray in your home. Soft and cosy or bright and open or even a mixture of both. Don’t worry too much about the trends because at the end of the day it’s your home and you will be the one living in it.
Don’t rush the process. Take your time to really determine what it is you want in your home. Create a vision board and put together all the things that you like. Spend some money to ensure the home is structurally sound, dry and warm. Figure out what it is like to live in the home and see what essentials may be missing. Live in the space for a few weeks or even months first. Find out what items such as furniture you really like and that would work in your space. Think long term goals rather than quick fixes. In doing so this can really help in keeping costs down if you don’t have a large budget or just don’t want to spend unnecessary money.
