5 easy tips for decorating your first home

Moving into your first house is one of the most important steps you can take in your life. Decorating it should be a fun and exciting experience.

1. Bring your old stuff

One of the easiest ways to begin decorating your new home is by bringing your old furniture to your new place.

  • This will help you get a start on the process without having to start from scratch.
  • Get rid of furniture you don't like or want to update, but bring the things that will work well in the new home and the things you're attached to.

2. Decorate the bedroom first

Starting with the bedroom is the best way to go about decorating your home.

  • Decide on the colour scheme before you get started.
  • You can paint the bedroom a light, subtle colour or paint one accent wall to make it look striking.
  • Adding little touches like curtains and colour-coordinated furniture will help spruce it up.

3. Unify colours

If you have a whole range of odds and ends and furniture, try tying everything together with a colour.

  • If the colours of different items clash, it will throw off the look of the whole room.
  • Consider painting the walls or one wall a certain colour to help balance the room.
  • Finish by looking for accent curtains or a rug that pulls it all together.

4. Make little, inexpensive updates

You do not always have to make huge investments in order to make a home look good.

  • Instead of investing in expensive new cabinetry, for example, you can make little changes like painting your existing dresser or changing the hardware.
  • Switching out the lighting in the bathroom and kitchen can also make a huge difference.

5. Do a little bit at a time

Remember that you do not have to buy everything all at once.

  • If you cannot afford to invest tons of money in your new home right away, it makes sense to wait on some or all of your purchases.
  • Things like beds and a kitchen table are important, but wall decor, curtains, a new couch and other items can wait until you have a little more cash to spend.
