If any of you have ever tried to decorate your first home or are in the process of decorating your first home, you know that it is much harder than moving into and decorating your college dorm room. You are also probably looking at less money to decorate then you initially expected, or planned for. For the following few minutes, I am going to give you a few tips that help to decorate your home without spending thousands of dollars to get started!
The first tip is to paint your house. If you can’t afford to paint the whole house then focus solely on your bedroom and possibly the living room. Since those are the areas that you will spend the most time and it is where visitors will come and enjoy time at your house. Remember to choose colors that speak to you and about your personality. Make your home a place that mirrors who you are. Don’t make it like your mother’s house, your friend’s house, or even that really cool one you saw on television. Let it be yours! If you are a morning person, choose bright colors or more subtle colors if you are a night owl. This will play to your benefit and mood.
The second tip is to find and buy a bed. This will give you a place to sleep that mixes well with the new paint of your bedroom. I recommend finding a bed frame that fits you and your style. It will last for years to come. You definitely want to really like it because 1/3 of your day will be spent in your bedroom, so don’t get something you don’t like.
