Effortless home décor ideas for your first home

Have you just purchased your first home or moving into a new flat? Striking out on your own is exciting enough, but getting to put your own stamp on the place is just as exciting. Your home isn't just your castle, it's your haven, your escape from a busy world – and decorating it is an important step in creating that safe space. Luckily, we have plenty of home decorating ideas for you.

  1. Out With The Old
This is a process that you can begin before you have even completed the purchase or rental agreement of a new place and it's an important step. We are all guilty of accumulating stuff and moving it from place to place. Take this opportunity to cull your material items and get rid of what you don't need. If it's been sitting in the garage or loft for years, you don't need it. Look at what furniture you have that you can repurpose and consider what you can do to display any keepsakes you have held onto.

You can donate or sell off what you don't want to keep.

  1. Start In The Bedroom
You spend a lot of time in the bedroom and as it's the room where you sleep, it should be comfortable and relaxing. Your bedding is key, so invest well here. There's nothing better than slipping between high thread count sheets. Choose your bedding first and then choose a paint colour that complements it (you can invest in more bedding sets later). The colour is up to you, but don't be afraid to look at the psychology of colours to help you create the perfect feel in your bedroom.

  1. Create Art
There are plenty of ways you can create your own art, so why not try to experiment with your imagination and save yourself some money on new décor while you're at it. You can paint your own canvases or try your hand at pottery, too.

  1. A Piece At A Time
Decorating a new home is expensive, but don't jump into buying everything all at once. You should let yourself get used to the house before you decide how to decorate. This will give you a good idea of what area needs the most investment. You may have earmarked some remodelling money for the bathroom, only to find that the bathroom is just fine whereas the kitchen needs a few upgrades. Just don't jump into big purchases too soon.

  1. A Gallery
You know all your favourite photos that you dot all over the place? Why not buy a stash of identical frames and place your favourite pictures in them. Now, choose the perfect spot in your home to hang them in a gallery. You can hang them in a whimsical pattern or stick to a grid.

  1. Matching Isn't Everything
Now, if it is in your personality to match then go for it – but you don't have to buy sets and sets of everything for every room of your home. There's nothing wrong with a bit of mixing and matching to shake up a space and avoid a showroom look. You don't want guests walking in and thinking they've seen this entire room in a catalogue, do you?

  1. Candle Clusters
Candles add a touch of warmth to any room, so why not create a cluster of candles. Not only will it keep you warm at night, potentially preventing the need for heating, but it adds a touch of class and it's a bit arty, too. Buy large candles (different heights, but the same colour) and place them in glass containers. The coffee table or a sideboard is the perfect spot for this creation.

  1. Tie It In With Colour
Not everything needs to match, but the easiest way to pull your entire look together and create a cohesive look is through colour. Find the colour that is in every single thing in a room and use that colour for throw pillows, area rugs, curtains, and other accessories to tie everything together.

  1. Outdoors In
This is a major trend right now, but it isn't one that is going away. We struggle to spend enough time outside, so bringing the outdoors in is great. It's the perfect way to decorate an entryway and you don't have to go over the top. You can simply invest in some English Ivy, a coatrack using recycled materials and rustic wooden furniture to finish the look. There are some really popular shades of green that will complete the look, too.

  1. Inexpensive Solutions
You don't need to replace your kitchen cabinets if they are in good condition – instead paint them to create a fresh look. Cabinetry is one of the most expensive remodel jobs and should only be done when absolutely necessary. Your bathroom can be transformed by upgrading the lighting. There are plenty of inexpensive home décor solutions that will provide your home with a new look.
