Homes For Sale

All the paperwork is signed, and the boxes are unpacked. Now that you’ve successfully moved into your new home, it’s time to put the touches on it to make it reflect you and your family. Chances are, even the thought of diving into decorating and DIY projects is overwhelming.

WORRY NOT! Decorating does not have to be stressful, expensive, or overly time consuming. Here are a few tips to help you add more of your personality into your new home.

Make it work

Make your new home 100% you by adding the touches that make your home work for your unique family. Try setting up a kitchen command center, where you keep all your families important notes, bills, grocery list, calendar, etc. This is one of the most important areas of your home and should be located in a place easily accessible to you and all of your family.  It also helps to keep it a bit fun with inspiring quotes and quirky notes.

And when you’re ready for a change:

Once your ready for a change, one way to change the look of your home with very little work, is to simply rotate. By rotating the artwork, and swapping out curtains and drape you can create a totally different look to your dwelling. This is especially true if you have taken the color tip above, and added an accent wall to your home.  Accent walls give you many options to accessorize color with décor.

WARNING!

Decorating and redecorating can be addictive. Most people find that once they’ve completed one project, they are ready to dive into the next project right away. The trick is to breathe, keep a pace that is comfortable to you, and take each project one step at a time. It is also very important to stick to timeframes/timelines for your projects. It is probably not a great idea to begin a 4 week project 2 weeks before you’re scheduled to host the next holiday with your entire family!

And the most important tip to decorating your home…. ENJOY!!!!!
