Decorating A New Home On A Budget

Sep 6, 2007
When it comes to decorating a new home on a budget, you will want to keep in mind that there are a lot of things that you are going to need, but won't fit into the budget. You will want to make sure that you think about what is important to you and what you will need right now so that you can sort of have it all, but not really. You won't the rooms that everyone is going to see to be completely done before you give into budgeting for the other rooms. There are a lot of key things that you will want to incorporate into the home that won't break your budget either.

Keep in mind that what you want to work on the first is the entry floor. This is usually the kitchen, a bathroom, living room, back room/laundry room, and so on. First consider your kitchen. You may want to go with a theme that everyone will be able to find something for. The great thing about getting a new home is that you need to have a open home party. This is where you show all your friends and family and in return they will give you things that you need for rooms like your dinning room or kitchen. Purchase a little bit of things like some towels and potholders to give the guests some type of idea of what is your theme and then rely on your guests to provide you with some of the things for the kitchen.

Secondly, the downstairs bathroom or entry floor bathroom is another place that your guests will go. You need to just accessorize in this room by cleaning it up. Make the room spotless. Even if you are on a short budget and can not pay attention to the bathroom, you should be able to get away with a plain bathroom as long as you show it as a crisp, clean room. Other than a hand towel, a candle could be your only accessory in the decor of the bathroom.

Third room that needs to be decorated right away is the living room. The living room can get very costly if you get expensive mirrors and candles and so on. What you need to do is spent your budget mostly on the curtains and window treatments. Then you can think about cheap lamps (which can be found at any discount store) and also go to the local generic store and get some candles and throw pillows that costs a few dollars and do some tossing around.

You have to pick what is important to you and how you envisioned it and then figure out the money. Keep in mind that a new home doesn't just come together all at once. You will have to consider the fact that this is a slow process and you have years and years to make it your own.
