If you’ve just signed on the dotted line and are ready to move out of the rental and into your first home, you’ll need to fill it. As well as the basics, now’s the time to truly make it yours. Here’s what you’ll need.
First, consider your spaces – will your grand design fit? And will your key pieces be in proportion? Measuring up is a great idea before you hit the shops.
Your lounge setting will be one of your biggest – and most important – investments, so think about quality and longevity, as well as what it will be used for (conversing, napping, watching TV, reading). The styling is all yours – think cushions, throws, side tables, lamps – and, of course, the flatscreen.
To take your abode beyond that rental feel, incorporate a zone for eating – whether it be a dining table, chairs and buffet or bar stools, it’ll give more options when it comes to welcoming your first guests.
If you’re really starting from scratch, you’ll also need a bed. With so many options – and styles – to consider, it’s best to try before you buy. And don’t forget those bedroom dimensions.
SET THE BOUNDARIES
Start adding personality, texture and comfort with rugs. Floor coverings can also define your zone. Go all out and adopt today’s look by contrasting styles – faux fur alongside jute; animal print with wool.
MAKE IT YOURS
Once you have the essentials, you can start styling and make the space your own. Think lighting, art, baskets and plants.
