There are many ways to make your new home livable while you’re saving for that new living room furniture or the bedroom set you’ve been wanting. Below are some quick tips to get your new home into tip top shape without spending a lot of money!
•Make Each Room Your Own
Place a framed photo, plant, candles or a personal item that reflects your originality in every room. Your home should show off your unique personality.
Any room can be transformed with a new coat of paint. Choose warm colors for rooms used for relaxing, and cool colors for offices and bathrooms.
•Pay Attention to Light
Does your new home have a great window that lets in beautiful light? Or maybe you have a sliding glass door that gives you a great view. Be sure to keep these spaces open and unblocked.
Go inexpensive with some pretty, simple curtains. Use white to match with everything, or pick a color that you know would brighten up a room.
While moving into your new house, make sure to take charge and throw away useless items that you will not use. You are starting over!
•Plants and Flowers
Use your interior decorating eye and find the perfect area for placing potted plants and flowers. Don’t throw away fresh withering flowers, instead hang them upside down and dry them for a great wall piece or arrange them in a pretty basket.
•Go Flea Marketing
Spend a Sunday shopping at your local flea market. Try to find a unique piece for one of your favorite rooms. You just might come across a valuable piece for a great price!
•Rugs and Carpets
Find a nice simple rug to save your carpet. A vibrant rug can add a splash of color to any room.
•Simple Oversized Mats and Simple Frame
Framed artwork can be very expensive. Choose a candid photo and buy an oversized mat and simple frame. Arrange them in two's and three's. It's a great way to dress up a lonely wall.
Give your favorite oversized chair a makeover and buy a
plain colored chair cover. They work great and make it look like you bought a
new piece of furniture!
