6 Tips for Furnishing Your New Home

Thread Count1. It’s better to spend a little more money now on quality linens and towels – not only are they more comfortable, but they will also last longer than the cheaper models. You will probably end up saving money in the long run. This can also be applied to quality mattresses, sofas and dining room tables.

 

Living Room Idea3. You don’t have to buy everything at once. Let yourself get used to the space and feel what is right. And rooms don’t have to copy each other from one house to the next – if that couch fits better in the master bedroom than the living room, let it! If you’re looking for a place to start, begin where guests will be – there are doors to your bedroom and that extremely stuffed closet for a reason.

 

Second Hand Furniture3. Second hand is not second best! Lots of people get rid of lightly-used furniture that would look great in your new space, and at a fraction of the price you would pay in a store. Check yard sales, auction houses and thrift stores, or even just ask around – maybe one of your friends or family members have things they would love to get rid of taking up room in their attics.

 

 

 

Hanging Art4. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on frames, try some of these tips on how to cheaply display your art.

 

 

 

 

 

Command Hooks Organization5. Get your stuff off the floor using command hooks or door hangers – it’s amazing how much floor space this will create.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Donation Box6. Before you move, do a massive spring cleaning of your possessions. If you haven’t touched it in over a year, you’re not going to ever again. And if you have a garage sale then that money can go towards something for the new place!
