Moving into a new home is exciting, however, it can come with a lot of costs. One of the bigger expenses that you have to face is buying furniture. Sofas, beds, tables, chairs… If you need to completely furnish a new home, it’s all too easy for the costs to add up.
The good news is that if you’re on a tight budget, it’s still possible to furnish your new home to look great and meet all of your needs. Let’s take a look at some easy home furnishing tips.
Decide on a colour scheme
Before you even start thinking about furniture, you’ll want to make some decisions about the colour palette of your new home. It’s advisable to settle on a neutral colour like grey, white, blush or beige and then your furnishings and decorative items can bring in some colour.
Know your measurements
When you get a new place, make sure that you have the correct measurements for your rooms and make a plan of where you would like your furniture to go. It’s a good idea to draw out a plan of your rooms and if you have everything measured correctly, you won’t have any issues when your furniture is delivered.
Make the most of natural light
Using sheer curtains for your windows is a good way to maximise the natural light you have. If you have any rooms that are a bit dark, think about what attractive light fittings you can install to brighten it up. If you want to energise a room, white light is ideal, however, if you want to create a relaxing and calm environment, soft yellow light would be better for you.
Let mother nature help
Potted plants and flowers are an excellent way to add beauty and a pop of colour to your home. These natural elements will also give your space a soothing feel while helping to keep the air inside your home healthy.
Ensure your furniture matches the size of the room
This may seem obvious, but it can be easy to overlook how the size of your furniture impacts the feel of a room. For example, if you have quite a large piece in a small room, it’s likely to feel cramped. Likewise, small pieces of furniture in a large room will look odd.
Bringing it all together
Ultimately, the way you furnish your home should be a reflection of your own sense of style. Decorate it with things that you love and make sure it puts a smile on your face!
