How to Decorate your First Home

Almost all of us dream of buying our own home someday. So if you just got lucky here, congratulations! Now you have got the keys to your own little world of happiness and truly, the feeling is matchless. Bidding farewell to your rented apartment to make a new beginning in your own palace is nothing short of enthralling. Whether you have bought a luxurious2bhk flat in Ghodbunder Road, Thane or a 3bhk beachside apartment in Mumbai, you must be feeling wonderful about it.

But what’s next? Unpacking and organising your old stuff seems like an obvious idea, but don’t you think your first home deserves more than that? Let’s figure out how you can make the most of your new home and trust us, it’s so much more than just arranging and re-arranging your old furniture and paintings.

Let the rugs take the lead

People living in rented apartments may not feel like investing in these wonderfully versatile pieces called ‘rugs’ and the reasons are obvious. But when you have your own place, you don’t need to think twice before buying them. Adding personality and texture to a room, they beautifully accentuate the aesthetics of your house. And the best part – you don’t have to put in a lot of effort to set them right. If you don’t want to spend a fortune on them, you can even go for rugs made from a variety of natural fibres like seagrass or sisal. A yet another inexpensive way to cover the hard floor is to get purchase colourful patterned rugs. An important thing to keep in mind before buying rugs is to check the dimensions of the space where you want to put them in so as to ensure they fit nicely.

Light it up

It would be a crime to not talk about lighting while decorating your first home. While your nosy landlords didn’t let you upgrade the lighting of your rented apartment, your new house can be given a makeover just by using lights in creative ways. You can start by selecting sophisticated wall lighting pieces and buying chic chandeliers to add to the luxury of your new house. You can also use your old fairy light strings to decorate your balcony or patio.

Customise with textiles

One of the many things that your new home brings you is flexibility. You have the freedom to personalise your house without being questioned. After rugs and lighting, your ‘freedom’ cycle has reached its next stop. Yes, shopping for colourful textiles. Whether you wish to purchase new bed sheets, curtains, table covers, or pillows, you have a plethora of designs and patterns to choose from.

Add artsy character

We are merely suggesting you to look around, put in some effort, explore and bring home some lovely but inexpensive art to add a bit of colour to your home.
