The Top 5 Tips for Decorating Your First Home

Decorating your home can be one of the most scary life decisions as it is something which you will have always dreamt about but you are probably overwhelmed with all the options which are available on the market. However, in order to master the art of decorating it is important to carry out a thorough planning process. Fashion Wallpaper have put together their top 5 tips for decorating your first home.

Decorating Supplies


Initially, you need to identify your budget to understand how much you have to spend. If you can only decorate one room at a time, choose the room where you will spend most of your time in order to be able to relax at the end of your busy day.

Floor Plan

One of the best ways to create a comfortable home which suits your specific tastes is by ensuring that all of your rooms flow and you can identify this by creating a floor plan. Another benefit is that it will allow you to see how your furniture will fit into the different angles of a room which will make the buying process easier. 

A Floor Plan Being Drawn


The colour palette can change the overall atmosphere of your home, once you have chosen your main colour, you will then be able to choose the furniture which will work alongside it. Wallpaper can inject personality into your home through the colours used within it.

Colour Cards and Pots


When shopping for furniture, especially large pieces like a sofa, think of it as an investment rather than just a purchase. It may be bang on trend now but will it be in two years time? Also, remember that comfort is just as important as how the piece looks.

It may seem obvious but make sure that you measure all of your space where you will be placing furniture before you go shopping as all furniture looks smaller in showrooms.

Old Items

Don't buy all of your pieces brand new, not only will this save you money but it will also create character within your home. Look in antique stores, charity shops and visit auctions to pick up some quirky pieces which will go along your new products.

In order to decorate your first home to the best of your ability, the most important steps can be carried out during the planning processes. It is likely that you will decorate your home room by room, so when you have identified your budget you will be able to break down how much you can splurge on the interior design for it.
