If you’re the owner of a new home, congratulations. A new house is a first step, a new beginning. Whether you’re single, staking your independence in a place all your own, newly married, looking for a place to settle down, or a couple with kids, looking for a bigger and better place to call home, a new house changes the face of your future. It gives your family somewhere special to dwell. It’s a new beginning, a new opportunity–a blank canvas. It’s time to fill it with colors all your own. Here are some tips for creating a home as cozy as can be, and as unique as you are.
Lighting is extremely important, all throughout your house. Whether you install track lighting beneath your kitchen cabinets to avoid midnight toe-stubbing, or sconces in your living room to bring warmth and appeal, lighting will change the atmosphere of your home. A room with only overhead lighting can seem gray and sterile, and a room with only small lamps too dim. Finding the proper lighting set up, to bring just the right style to your home, is an art, one that’s worth the time to figure out.
Unless you have a vintage oven, so old it becomes classy, you’ll probably want to replace any old appliances around the house. Not only do they use more energy, harming both your utilities and the environment, they often don’t work as well as they should. Consider browsing companies such as Dacor to get an idea of sleek, modern appliance options.
For many, wall art is an afterthought, but art enhances the atmosphere of your home. Empty wall space spells “temporary;” a wall full of art brings charm and a feeling of homey-ness. Consider buying a favorite geek print off Etsy or getting gorgeous canvas prints made from any photo from affordable companies like Simple Canvas Prints.
The type of furniture you have, and how it’s placed in a room can greatly affect the room’s charm. You don’t have to put any faith in feng shui to still benefit from a carefully arranged living room layout. There’s something to be said for just the right amount of openness. A room properly arranged breathes easier. It’s better for gatherings and more relaxing at the end of a long day. Taking the time to properly arrange your furniture will benefit your home in the long run
This exciting black canvas, this new time in your life, is an opportunity for you to express yourself. Enjoy yourself as you turn each empty room into a home. The more thought and effort you put into your home in the early stages, the more comfortable you’ll feel in years to come.
