Moving into a new house is never an easy experience. It takes sometime to truly start loving the place and convert it into a home which has your personal touch. And at times, it is possible we feel out of place. Here are some ways to make your new place seem your own at the earliest.
Fresh coats of paint are the easiest way of adding that personal touch to your home. If you do not like the builder’s choice of colours or want to brighten up a room, choose your favourite shades and change the appearance with immediate effect. Soft, mossy green in the living room, warm cornmeal yellow in the kitchen and dining room and bright, rich tones in the bedroom is what we recommend. The new and clean walls help in creating positivity and gives a base to the other interior decoration plans. All this need not cost a bomb and can easily fit into a smaller budget.
This is another inexpensive way of personalising your home. Mount photographs cut out of old coffee table books in inexpensive heavy black frames rather than buying pre-framed prints. Or use cheap outdoor wicker furniture inside.
Bring in the greens
Tropical plants add colour and life to every room. But make sure you place them at locations which receive ample sunlight.
Keep things manageable by making a list of everything you need to buy for each room. Start by discarding hand-me-down items you really don’t need. Plan the budget required to complete the work in one room at a time to make it easy on the pocket. Important tip: Avoid inviting friends and family as far as possible within the first six months as premature entertaining just leads to feelings of inadequacy and anxiety.
