If you are about to move house, and you want some ideas on how to turn your new house into a comfortable homely home, this article will give you some hints and tricks on how to make your new home the best you’ve ever had, even if you don’t have the budget to splash out on expensive new furnishings.
Remove previous owner’s floor and replace it with new floor
The floor of the previous home owner is probably one of the first thing that should go. This is because you don’t know how many times the floor has been cleaned before and what has been spilt on the floor or carpet. If you are looking for a new luxurious floor that will last a very long time, very durable and that is suitable for all types of homes, then Underfoot Flooring is a good place to look.
Paint the walls to a colour that you like
In order for a house to feel like a home, you need to like the way your home looks. If there is a design feature that you really liked from our own home, bring it to your new home and you will quickly be reminded of home.
If there isn’t a colour in particular that you like or have in mind, then it’s a good idea to look at the colours that are commonly used in British modern interior design. At the moment grey has been used many times, so if you are looking for an on-trend colour, then you will not go wrong with using a bit of grey in your décor.
Pastels always look great, especially if you are wanting to give your home a feminine edge. All pastel colours look very nice together, so you could use all the colours together and create an ice cream/candy themed room.
Buy new furniture that suits your new home
It you are upsizing, you have the opportunity to purchase bigger furniture that will fit your bigger rooms, equally, if you are downsizing it may be a good idea to purchase smaller furniture, as bigger furniture may not fit well in smaller sized rooms.
Your old furniture may not suit your new style of home, so if you are conscious of this, now is the time to purchase furniture that suits your new home. By new, it isn’t always meant that an item has to be brand new, second hand furniture can look just as nice as a brand new furnishing, for a fraction of the price.
Make your living room comfortable
The more soft furnishings we have in our living rooms the better. In Winter months we all love to snuggle up on our sofas and binge watch box sets, so why not invest in some nice snuggly throws and some cushions that give us some comfort. This is probably the cheapest way of adding comfort into a room.
Purchase new lighting
A new home means there are new opportunities to add new lighting. Lighting in particular can really change the ambience of a room and chandeliers and fancy lamps can really add a touch of glamour to a room.
Have outdoor furniture
It’s not only important to make sure your indoor space is furnished, it’s also a good idea to make sure you have outdoor furniture, ready for when you wish to host outdoor parties and gatherings. If you don’t already own outdoor furniture, then now is a good time, as you can set the furniture up at your new home.
