Decorating your New Home: 7 Expert Tips

So, after all the hard work and stress, your new home is done and dusted. It’s looking every bit as flash as you had hoped – what now? Now, it’s time to decorate. Decorating your home can be a rewarding experience for so many reasons. But it can also be a challenge if you haven’t had the opportunity to do so before. That’s why we’ve gathered some expert tips for decorating your new home!

1. Colour is everything – choose yours wisely

Every good project needs solid foundations. You’ve mastered that with your home, so now it’s time to carry it through! And what better way to do so than with colour? Colour is your basic building block when it comes to decorating your new home. Choosing the right scheme will really set you us for success. Take your time, shop around and choose something that really speaks to you.

2. Play to your strengths and put your best foot forward

Is there one thing in your house that you are really proud of? Perhaps a kitchen bench, or maybe a lavish bathtub? Whatever it is, don’t hide it! If you want to show off your beautiful interior features, then do it. Putting your best food forward is a great way to build confidence in your newly decorated home. Remember, you are decorating for yourself more than anything.

3. Colour can go anywhere, so get creative!

We always seem to view colour as a bit of a two-dimensional decoration. After all, it seems to hang our pretty innocuously on the walls or ceiling. Or does it? Colour can go anywhere, and we mean anywhere! For example, adding a bold and exciting colour to your doorway is a great way to transition from the outside of your home to the inside. And it’s not a major step! Better still, you can change it up whenever the mood takes you.

4. Is your furniture looking a bit worn? It might be time for some new additions

No doubt you’re bursting with excitement at the thought of getting into your beautiful new home. Your family has stuck with you through the transitional process, and so have your memories, which is great! But are there some things that you should leave behind. The answer is, in a lot of cases, yes. And the prime example is furniture. Old, worn furniture has no place in your plans for decorating your new home. So treat yourself to a new set!

5. You don’t have to break the bank with cutlery and crockery

If you’ve made it to the kitchen decorating stage, we probably don’t need to tell you how expensive matching sets of cutlery and crockery are. What you might be more interested in hearing is the benefits of a more assorted approach to your kitchen cabinet. Mixed and assorted cutlery and crockery has a great homely feel about it, so don’t get too caught up in your searching for matching perfection!

6. Rugs are one of the most powerful home decorating tools!

Is your new living room just crying out for a little something extra? Are you struggling to work out what that is? Well, struggle no more, because we have the answer: rugs. Rugs are a very powerful ally to have when decorating your new home. So have a look around for one that suits you.

7. Pillows can make your colour scheme sparkle

In the same way that rugs can really resurrect empty spaces, so too can pillows. Pillows and cushions are like little bubbles of colour and texture. So with a well-selected assortment on your couch and chairs, you can really reach new levels of homeliness and comfort!
