Completing a Summer Move:
6 Tips from Experience for Furnishing Your New Home
You’re ready to put down roots in a brand new home. But are your furnishings ready to make the new house feel like “home sweet home”? Create your dream home with the help of the affordable furniture solutions from The RoomPlace:
- Don’t be afraid to say “goodbye”
While you’re packing up your belongings, think about what should come with you into your new home. Are you tired of the dining room table that you’ve had in your room for years? Don’t be afraid to give yourself a fresh start. Donate or sell what you don’t love in a consignment store and make room for furniture that will fulfill your decorative and functional dreams.
- Take in your surroundings
A bright red couch might look stunning in the showroom, but will it clash with your blue tinted kitchen tiles? Think about your home’s color scheme before making any new home furniture purchases. Earthly colors are trend-proof while bold colors are catchy and modern. What color speaks to you? Look through online catalogs and envision different colored furniture in your home.
- Give yourself time to think
Your new space doesn’t have to look picture-perfect the moment that you move in. Unpack all of the belongings that you already own before welcoming any new furniture to your home.
- Ask yourself questions
Before you dive into your furnishing project, take a step back and ask yourself: “What’s my style?” Are you a bold modernist at heart, or do you prefer the comforts of traditional design? Let your instinct guide you so that you can choose the perfect new furniture for your home.
- Look at your space
Consider windows and doorways. Tall furniture can block the view and natural light from your windows. Bigger furniture can also block doorways and make room entrances seem narrow. Pick out furniture that will go with the structure and flow of each room in your house.
- Enjoy yourself!
Furnishing a new home should be fun, not stressful! This is your chance to create your dream home. Savor the process, and let the RoomPlace provide you with the affordable furniture to turn your vision into a reality.
