Many aspects of moving are exciting - new challenges, a new life, and a chance to decorate your new space. After dealing with the moving-day headache, you can spruce your new space to make it feel like home. The new environment is like a blank canvas, waiting for you to create a masterpiece. You will want to nail it on your first attempt to avoid wasting time and money redecorating over and over. Here are some simple tips for decorating your new home after moving.
Several things fall into the “to do later” category, but not painting. Ideally, it would help if you painted your new home before you move in, not after. Doing otherwise means you’ll most likely not paint your new home. Why? Because after the stress of packing all your stuff into your new home, you’ll need extra motivation to pack them out again to paint. So, paint before moving day and give your walls more than enough time to dry before moving in. Also, have a plan when painting. Ensure you complete one room before moving to the next to avoid going back and forth.
Different homes come with various designs and features that make them stand out. For example, new townhomes look and feel different from new apartments, so feel free to consider this. So, let your decoration highlight what’s unique about your property. Whether you’re moving into an apartment or a townhouse, something about your new home jumped at you, which is why you bought it. Consider those attractive features and find ways to accentuate them when designing. Decorating your home to highlight its architectural features may sound strange. However, those features appealed to you during your buying stage, and they’ll likely appeal to loved ones, visitors, and neighbors when you highlight them.
Turn your home upside down and have fun with it. Well, not literally, but think outside the box or break some rules when decorating. For example, who said your accent chair looks out of place in your modern kitchen or that you can’t turn that old magazine cover into a centerpiece art? Be bold enough to break away from the traditional interior decor styles and make your home’s design unique. But the design should look good to you, at least, and be practical and functional, so keep this in mind.
Take the time to explore your new home again. You probably did that more than once when deciding if it was the right house for you. But exploring it again can help you discover new things, helping you decide what will fit perfectly into each space and what to avoid. Do this before you pack, move, or purchase anything for your new home. Create a vision of what each room or space should look like, and list the things to buy in line with that vision.
