10 Items Homeowners Buy For Their Newly Built Home
Its official, your new home is built and it’s ready for you to move in and start your life, but where do you start with you furnishing your home? It can be overwhelming especially if you are starting from scratch.
Here are the top 10 items homeowners buy for their new home:
- Don’t buy a thing
Don’t go on a buying rampage before you get a feel for your home. Walk around and get a feel for what kind of furniture you want in each space and how much space you actually have. Buy things that complement your lifestyle.
- Window Treatments
You can’t live in an empty house forever, so you will eventually need things like blinds, drapes and shades. Window treatments will keep your home from being visible to any peepers or curious neighbors and will keep the morning and afternoon sun from beaming in.
- Books and Art
Having empty shelves and bare walls makes your home uninviting. If you have built ins, fill them with all your favorite books and decorations. If you don’t, pick up some organizers for your things that can add a touch of character.
- Restored hand me downs
Technically you don’t buy hand me downs, but you do buy the stuff to restore them. Its cheaper than buying something brand new, but it brings a familiar aspect to your home.
- Side tables
At the end of the day you just want to put your feet up and relax with a beverage, but don’t have any place to put it...and this is where the side tables come into play. Side tables don’t necessarily have to blend into your decor and can be the focal point of your room.
Have fun with your light fixtures. This is a great way to incorporate your personality whether it’s a mid century chandelier or a modern fan and light fixture.
- Live plants
Make your home warm and inviting with large live plants like a ficus, palms or figs. If you want to get really crazy and challenge yourself a little bit, you can try keeping a succulent alive.
Now that you have plants, why not throw some flowers in the mix. Flowers brighten up any room and bring warmth to your home.
- Your color palette
Every home as a consistent color palette and tone that spreads throughout the home. It creates a stylish cohesion throughout the space. This isn’t something that you have to decide right away and will eventually fall into place.
- Organization baskets
Organization baskets dont always have to be so dull and bulky, but are super convenient for clutter that you dont want lying around. Buying a piece of furniture with slots for baskets is the trendy way to organize your stuff.
