Building your first home? The home building process is stressful enough don’t let the interior decor stress you out even more! Take some pointers from these tips below that can help relieve that first home decorating fright.


Stick To A Color Palette

The easiest way to create a cohesive living space is by sticking to one primary color. Once you have your base color in place try expanding to other shades that match that particular one. For example, if you choose brown try to mix in neutral hues of tan, taupe, and white. This will not only make the space feel more polished but it will also make it easier to shop for furniture this way.


Don’t Feel Pressured To Buy Everything At Once

One of the biggest mistakes that new homeowners make when decorating a new home is buying everything all at once in an effort to complete the decorating process quickly. Accessorizing your new place can feel never ending. Buying furniture you actually love and fit into your area is much better in the long run than buying items just to fill the room. 


Work Room By Room 

Before moving into your new home grab a blueprint and work off of it. Starting from the foyer, then to the living room, bedrooms, and finally the backyard/porch area. Sectioning off these spaces can make the decorating process less daunting and give you a sense of accomplishment when you complete each area of the new house. Just remember to stick to the tip above, and don’t rush when it comes to the buying process!


Splurge With Lighting

Lighting can make or break your home. When choosing which light fixtures should go in your new home choose something timeless. This will ensure the longevity and lasting appeal of your new space. Another way to incorporate lighting that will enhance the space to the fullest extent is to add uplighting. For example, if you have a plant, mirror, or piece of art, try placing lighting around or behind it that shines upward toward the ceiling, this will elongate the object and overall make your area feel elevated.


Work With An Expert

When in doubt, trust an expert! Hiring an interior designer to help curate your space can be one of the best options when you are stuck and want your home to come together in a collective but efficient manner.
