Well, not all of us come from rich families. When we got our first house, we don’t have much money left to spend on decorating the house also. Yes, we could loan some money from our parents for the renovation, but we don’t think that’s the right thing to do. So, we go with the “budget” way of decorating our first house. Here are some of the home decor ideas that you can consider for your first house. Just because you don’t have a lot to spend doesn’t mean you can’t decorate your home!
There isn’t a need to fill the living room with a cupboard or high cabinet. They will just attract dusts. Buy a small sofa and mix it with different chair designs. Fill the chairs with cushions with different designs and colors. Wall decoration also plays a role! There are many cheap and beautiful abstract pictures. Buy some and hang them on the wall of the living room. Choose a unique ceiling light to give a luxurious look to your living room! Do not forget to decorate a coffee table with some book arrangement, a small decorative vase with flower in it.
At your house entrance, you can buy some deko-style frames and hang them at the wall the moment your guest set foot in the house. Also place a console table for you to place the key and the letter. Below the table, maybe you can place a basket also that keeps the socks or maybe a shoe rack to place shoes neatly and nicely. You can put some hangers on the side of the console table near the entrance. You can hang a bag, hang a jacket … so it’s easy for you. When you are late, you can just grab and go!
If you have no children and there is only both of you, buy a small dining table with 4 seats. This saves you space in your cute home and is easier for you to tidy up also later! If you have lots of guests, just stretch the mat and get everybody to sit on the floor. I don’t think they will mind. You don’t have to buy dining table set, you can mix the chairs and with a table. New style!
All the cups and plates not necessary have to be kept in the cabinet. You can buy shelves to place the plates, kitchen utensils, make it special than the norm. You can buy some small plants to decorate your kitchen further.
If you have a balcony, you can consider buying small chairs and a wooden table and place them at the balcony. Fill the whole space with green plants. If you do not want the floor to look bored, you can use the wooden flooring board that you can get yourself from IKEA or home improvement stores.
Replace the boring ceiling lights with wall lamps. It makes your bathroom looks more exclusive. To put your shampoo and soap, you can build shelves on the upper wall where the toilet bowl sits.
Who says bedrooms need to be have a bed. Follow the hipster concept that just uses the mattress. But do not forget to get a beautiful comforter to make your room looks better! You can add carpets or even a small sofa to brighten up space also.
See, you can have a beautiful home without a home filled with expensive items or furniture. You can make your house beautiful with a small budget!
