Home Sweet Home: 3 Tips for Decorating Your First House

You found the house you liked; made it through the maze of getting a mortgage and closing. Now, you are ready to start making this house a home. Decorating your first abode is really fun and exciting. You finally have a space that is completely your own, and you can do whatever you want with it. But, before you start decking out your home with abandon, you want to take a moment to do a bit of planning. Here are some helpful interior design tips for the first-time homeowner.

Resist the Urge to Buy Everything at Once

When you first laid on your house, you probably had a flood of idea rush through about what you wanted the space to be like, how you wanted to decorate it, and any upgrades or changes. So, naturally, you want to do everything at once, and buy all your stuff in one go. But, try to hold off for at least a couple of months.

Give yourself some time to get settled in the space, to see how you are using different rooms, etc… Things that seemed like a priority at first may not now, and you would rather direct your time and money towards a different project, or room. That bathroom upgrade you were so certain about when you made the offer may not seem as important now, as sprucing up your home office, where you spend hours each day.

Don’t Reject Secondhand Goods Outright

Many people moving into a new home often receive offers from family and friends to give them some of their stuff they no longer need, or are planning on replacing. Your first instinct may be to reject these offers without a second thought—after all, you want everything to be new in your new house. But, carefully consider any offers—perhaps you can make some inexpensive changes to make the items more to your liking, like a fresh coat of paint on that dresser, or reupholstering the loveseat. This can be a great way to save money.  Same goes for buying anything used—try to see the potential before rejecting them.

It is important to keep in mind your tastes will likely evolve over the next few years as you get a better sense of what you want your home to look like. It might be a good idea to hold off on buying big, expensive pieces brand new so you are in a better position financially to really design your house to your liking once you have clearer ideas of your style. Be smart with your decorating budget.

Not Everything Has to Match

To keep your home from looking like a furniture showroom, resist the urge to have everything match. Walk into any furniture store, and you can easily see they are really pushing this idea. They just want you to buy all those sets. While it makes sense that some pieces have the same style, don’t obsess over having everything match perfectly. This can hamper your personal style, and make your home look boring. More important than everything matching is that the pieces in any given room have good proportion, scale and balance.
