Moving into your new Cypress Green home is an exciting opportunity to create a space that reflects your personality and style. It can also be a challenge. Décor from your previous home might not work in your new one. Need help? Here are some easy ideas for decorating your new home:
Take Stock of What You Have
Artwork, linens, vases and other items that didn’t seem to work in your previous home could take on new life in your new one. Built-in shelves could showcase knickknacks that have been packed away. Framed posters could liven up a media room. Take stock of what you have before buying anything new.
Plants are an easy and inexpensive way to add color and freshness to your space. Choose plants that will thrive. Plants that need a lot of moisture benefit from being in your bathroom. If windows flood your home with light, find plants that do well in the sun. Potted plants are a good way to dress up your patio.
Treat Your Windows
Install curtains or drapes to add color and warmth to your rooms. Purchase inexpensive window coverings to use until you can afford something fancier. Invest in high-quality rods and finials so you don’t have buy different ones when you purchase better curtains.
If you’re a bookworm, you have the makings for easy décor. Put them on shelves interspersed with photos, art or vases. Oversized books look great on coffee tables. Stack books on end or decorator tables topped by a fake plant.
Lay Down Rugs
Area rugs can instantly transform a room. This is especially true if you have tile or wood floors. Choose rugs that complement your furniture and add a cozy element to your living space.
Create an Art Gallery
Create a gallery wall with framed photos, artwork or even mirrors. This is a great way to personalize your space and showcase your memories. You can also create your own artwork. This could be as simple as framing your favorite quotes, creating abstract paintings or framing interesting fabric.
Temporary Wallpaper or Decals
If you’re not ready for a long-term commitment, consider using temporary wallpaper or decals to add pattern and interest to your walls. Most of it goes up quickly and won’t damage paint.
Accent the Furniture
You may find your furniture needs an update, but if you can’t afford anything new, add throw pillows and blankets to your sofa or bed. This is a quick way to change the look of a room.
Welcome People Home
Create a welcoming entryway by adding a doormat, a few plants and maybe a small console table with a decorative bowl for keys. You’ll be happy to come home, and guests will comment on your decorating skills.
