Get Ahead of the Game

Before you have moved out of your old house or apartment, get ahead of the game by starting the packing and organizing process. Get organized by throwing out or donating up to 25 to 50% of your older belongings. This includes clothes you don’t wear, outdated furniture, faulty appliances, old kitchen items, and any other knick-knacks.

Moving to a new place is the perfect time for a fresh start. If needed, host a neighborhood garage sale or sell some items on eBay. If you haven’t looked at the item in over a year, you will not miss it!

Create Multifunctional Spaces

While planning how you will decorate each room, keep in mind how each space can be multifunctional. If you are shopping for furniture, look at pieces that can pull double duty for different tasks like extra storage for out of season clothes. For example, purchasing a TV stand with drawers allows you to entertain the family while providing additional space for items without a home.

Focus on the Bedroom First

The bedroom should be the most comfortable part of your entire home because you spend a large chunk of time in this area. You will need to make sure your bedroom is complete with comfortable bedding and enough space to move freely. If you want to spice up your bedroom, consider putting down a fresh coat of paint and adding coordinating window treatments. A Himalayan salt lamp or adult mobile can also provide a relaxing touch.

If you have set aside a budget for new bedroom furniture, invest in a quality mattress and bed frame for optimal comfort. Be sure to shop around before making a final decision. You want to make sure this piece will match the color scheme of your home and directly reflect your personality.

Bring Out Splashes of Color

Before purchasing major decorations, you need to come up with a color scheme for your home. If you choose a relatively neutral color palette, be sure to add bursts of color with accent pillows and vases. If you decide to change your color scheme down the road, keep these items around just in case.

Gradually Add Finishing Touches

It may be a good strategy to live in your home for a few months before adding the final touches to your decorations. You may use the space in your home differently than you originally planned. Create a detailed plan of your budget to help you determine which room should be renovated first. For example, you may find that renovating a guest bedroom is not as important as the kitchen or guest bathroom. You may also find that a queen size bed is better than a king-size or a smaller desk will fit better in your bedroom corner.

Save Accents for Last

When decorating your living room, be sure to start with the largest items and work your way down. Add central pieces like a coffee table, sofa, chairs, TV stand, and shelving first. Once you have rearranged these items to your liking, gradually add your final touches and be sure to snap a quick photo to show your friends and family all of your hard work!
