Buying a home is one of, if not the biggest purchase you will ever make. It's completely normal to be a little more conscious about pinching your pennies for the next few months. Here are a few things to keep in mind when your home is ready for you.
Patience is a Virtue: don't feel like you have to have your entire house decorated right when you move in. Wait to find pieces that you love or better yet, wait until those pieces go on sale. You won't be disappointed when you end up with exactly what you wanted for a fraction of the cost.
Hand-Me-Down Furniture: it is amazing what a coat of glossy black paint will do for an old or worn out piece of furniture. There's no need to buy a new dresser if yours is looking like it has seen better days. Just dress it up with some fresh paint and it'll look as good as new.
Feature Wall: instead of painting an entire room, choose just one wall. Adding a new splash of colour will add more character to your room and provide you with a more versatile design.
Switching up Your Hardware: it might seem like a small change but it can really make your furniture 'pop'. If you have old or boring knobs on your dresser, replace them with something that has some colour or unique designs. You'll feel like you have a brand new piece of furniture.
Add Mirrors: adding mirrors of any size or shape can spruce up any room. It's an inexpensive and easy way to make any room appear bigger and brighter.
