Home ownership is exciting for first time home buyers. Starting out, especially for young people, can be full of unexpected financial surprises, and while you have just achieved your goal of home ownership, you may find your bank account to be temporarily drained. But, don’t worry, because paying a mortgage is typically more affordable than paying rent.
While you wait for your bank account to beef back up, you can’t wait to decorate your new digs. Hiring a professional is likely out of the question, but you can still have a beautiful home that will be the envy of your friends and family. Here are some tips to decorate like a professional, but on a budget.
1. Find Warehouse Deals
Discount home goods stores are out there. You just have to know where to find them. A store like Black Friday Warehouse offers quality home products for any budget. Beautiful accents to compliment your color scheme, including lighting and bath accessories can be had for a fraction of the price of name brand retailers.
2. DIY Paint
You can save a lot of money by doing a lot of the updates to your property yourself, and applying paint from a roller is a task that can save you hundreds of dollars. Knowing a consistent color scheme can make your spaces flow, and choosing light colors can make a small space feel larger. Don’t be afraid to experiment and set your creativity free!
3. Create Ambience
Small touches like fresh flowers and a bowl of fruit can make your space inviting. Candles and plants add relaxation, and original art adds sophistication. Art doesn’t have to be expensive. You can create your own art or buy from students studying at your local college or university.
Creating a beautiful home doesn’t require a huge investment. Start small, but make a statement about your personality.
