Housewarming - How to Equip Your First Joint Family Nest

Living & Lifestyle

(Guest Writer: Jessica Vainer)

Purchasing a new place is probably the most thrilling time for a family. After so much effort collecting the cash, it feels like the most challenging step to accomplish. But knowing how to equip it with all the right furnishings is a feat of its own.

I remember the first time I had to furnish my home. It was super exciting and daunting at the same time. There is a lot to think about, like the colour, texture, design, outlook, the list goes on and on. I also had to write some essays about marriage for a college assignment, which took plenty of time and effort.

The good thing is, there are plenty of opportunities to personalize a home to fit your unique style. It may seem like a nerve-racking process, but it’s much easier than you realize.

If you too, have essays on marriage to complete and home to furnish, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve compiled some of the most practical décor tips that will make any new house feel welcoming.

7 Handy Tips For Furnishing a New Home

The easiest way to find the ultimate décor is by following your instincts. Don’t overthink it. Otherwise, the whole furnishing process will just stress you out.

Plus, if you have to write some college essays, like an assignment about marriage, you can browse premade essays for inspiration. Checking out essays on marriages might be helpful if you need a different perspective to find the right encouragement. That’s why you should take a look at some of the more useful décor tips on how to equip your first joint.

1. Focus on the Basic Components

The basic rule for interior design is to focus on the fundamental components of the house. Before you invest in a sofa or a bed, think about these four basic principles:

  • Tiles
  • Floor
  • Wall
  • Appliances

To know how to equip a room, you first have to envision how it will look like. Then, make a list of all the changes you are going to make and decide the furnishing based on your adjustments. Think about where the appliances will be, how many electrical outlets you will need, etc.

If you take care of the hangers and carpets before you put the furniture, it will be much easier to set everything in place. Pick out the colour of the tiles and wall patterns before you add appliances.

2. Set Decorating Priorities

When I think of how I furnish my home, there is one thing that first comes to mind – money. Immediately after purchasing a house, it will be hard on your budget. You will start wondering how to equip the space slowly, and I got just the trick for you.

Instead of spending all your cash on every room, try to prioritize the rooms. This is an excellent budget-saving technique. Tackle the furnishing in the bathroom and living room first. Then, start with the bedroom.

As odd as it may sound, you won’t need a fully functioning kitchen with a dishwasher and all kinds of appliances.

Besides, if you’ve written a marriage essay before, you know how important it is to make a positive environment for a family to grow. If you spend all the money on convenience, you will just stress yourself out.

3. Measure the Rooms

Not everything that looks small on a brochure will fit in your space. That’s why it’s essential to get precise measurements for every piece of furniture you are going to implement. This is the simplest technique on how to equip a house efficiently.

But, don’t forget to think about the walls, doors, and ceiling. The furnishing has to complement the space, not limit it.

4. Determine Your Style

We all have our unique styles. But, to make the place feel like home, you need to add a personal flair. Figuring out how to equip a room with your personality will make the house pop. If you have no idea what to do, think about the style you prefer. You can also visit websites and online forums for interior design inspiration.

Do you like a minimalistic design with simple, yet elegant furnishings? Or, are you interested in contemporary design? No matter what you like, it’s vital to add aesthetically pleasing décor to your new house.

5. Stay Organized While Unpacking

The last thing you need is to make a mess, especially if you have a marriage essay due the next day. So add a pantry, bookshelf, cabinet, or baskets before you start filling the room with clutter.

If you have self-storage rental services in your district, you can make use of that as well.

That way, you won’t lose any of your belongings, and the room will remain nice and neat.

6. Don’t Forget the Natural Light

Every residence needs natural light and plenty of windows. Not just for looks, but for practicality as well. The more windows it has, the easier it will be to create enough ventilation. The rooms will also feel more welcoming and easy on the eyes. So, don’t go overboard with the curtains. Let the natural light brighten up the place.

7. Don’t Over-Clutter Space

The less stuff you get, the better. This is one of those things I always think about when I furnish my home. The reason for that is relatively simple.

The more clutter you have, the more difficult it will be to live in that space as it will be harder to move around. You will be sacrificing your comfort for something you don’t even need. It’s best to donate the extra stuff to someone who can make the most of them.

Conclusion

Equipping the living space with furniture may seem stressful. But with these steps, you will always find your way around the trouble and come up with decorating ideas that will make your space feel like home. It’s all about expressing your creativity and picking out practical furniture that will reflect your unique style.
