Congratulations! After touring many homes for sale in newport nc you’ve finally purchased your dream home. As you plan to decorate your furnish your new home use the tips below to avoid making these common furnishing mistakes.
- Impulsive buying – One of the greatest benefits of moving into a new home is being able to decorate it. Though you may want to go out and buying everything at once to fill up those empty rooms, don’t feel obligated or in a rush to do so. Plan out each room and start furnishing the most important rooms of your home.
- Measure, measure, measure – A measuring tape is your best friend when it comes to furnishing your home. Accuracy is key and you want to make sure that not only does your furniture fit into the space but is also proportioned for it. In addition, measure the hallways and doors to ensure your furniture will fit through those areas.
- Crammed space – The last thing you want to do is to have too much furniture or décor in your space. This can create a cluttered and overwhelming feel when you’re looking to create a comfortable space that guests can easily maneuver around.
- Right out of the showroom – Furniture store showrooms and decorating magazines do a great job of advertising their furniture. However, just because the sectional you like is shown in a set doesn’t mean you need to purchase every other piece of the room as displayed. Not only may it not look as good in your home as it does in the store or magazine, but it may come off as staged. Instead, we suggest picking a piece (a couch) and incorporating it with other furnishings to give the room more character.
