Tips To Decorate Your New Home On A Tight Budget

By Abbie Osborne-Wilson

You’ve just bought a new house and decorating comes next. This can be a tedious task, especially if you’re decorating for the first time. Hiring an interior designer to do the work is a tempting idea but not one suited to someone who’s on a tight budget. Moreover, being hands-on in decorating your home sounds better than having someone else do it, don’t you think? You can change your mind as often and be as meticulous as you want without annoying anyone…

Few things to keep in mind before getting in your old furniture or buying new ones are:

In decorating a new house, you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the space. Without furnishings to block the areas, you’ll know better which furniture goes well in what room. Obviously, measurements are important. Before buying new furniture, make sure that you know the measurements of the space so you won’t be spending your money for nothing. If you want to use your old furniture however, then work your other decors around your piece. If no other decors fit in the room, then so be it. You can enhance the room in other creative ways, such as through lighting, wall hangings and color.

Living room: Maybe the old sofa can be brought in with the side tables and the television. Curtain and rugs would accentuate the room and if you have to buy them, to fit the place, big prints are more advisable. An artificial flower arrangement with big bright flowers on one corner or on the mantel would make the room look elegant and pleasing to look at.

Bedroom: A decent bed is all you need. If you already have it then great! Otherwise, its time you go down to the nearest store and purchase it. Storage space for your personal items is necessary and should match your furniture around. A soft, plush area rug placed on either side of the bed, will provide you with a soft place for your feet to land on when you wake up from bed.

The Children’s Bedroom: It should be bright and airy with lovely, pleasing to the eye wallpaper and matching curtains. Of course, if your children are small, a bunk bed to one side would be advisable, leaving enough space for them to play with their toys. A study table should be available for their use as well.

Make your kitchen more than just a cooking place. If space permits, have a dining set too albeit less formal than the one in the dining room. Storage is crucial too in the kitchen to prevent clutter. Don’t be strictly straightforward in decorating your kitchen, especially if you intend to spend family time here. Make it inviting as well by using a warm color, an area rug to embellish the floor, curtain or window blinds and other decorations like flowers, photos and your family’s message board on the wall.

The kitchen can be made into a cozy and welcoming room despite its very practical purpose as a cooking space. A lively wall color, window treatment, kitchen utensils and personalized items can make the kitchen look more of a family room too.

Finishing these main areas will make decorating the other rooms easier. The bathrooms, patio, entryway and hallways, basement and backyard should also be given attention so that you will have a house that looks pleasing in every corner.
