Furnishing Tips for your First Home

So you’ve gone and done it; you’ve ventured from the nest and have your first home. Whether you have bought it or are renting, it is your first home to make completely yours. From the colour scheme to little accessories around the house, this is your place to be completely proud of; and to make yours. We would recommend you get the first essential factors together; colour schemes for the rooms, essential bits of furniture and a budget! You can add to your home month on month with new accessories; bits and bobs for the house that are little pocket diggers, make a budget for good quality investments.

The things that make your home are the big pieces of furniture like a bed, sofa, armchairs and dining room table and chairs. Not forgetting about a washing machine, fridge/freezer and a wardrobe! The smaller bits such a coffee table are pieces of furniture you can get when everything starts coming into place.

Take your time when deciding on furniture:

You want your furniture to be right for your home, so make investments but make sure they are right for you and your home. Have a few ideas in your mind and design your space before putting anything into it. Make sure you get the measurements and dimensions before going ahead and buying big pieces of furniture due to excitement.


Consider the essentials:

When you move in, just go in with the bare essentials; something to sleep on, something to eat on and something to sit on. You want to really get a feel for your new home and get everything ready from colour scheme or carpet before deciding on the big things.
