Summary: If you are going to move into your new house soon you should follow a plan on how best to fill it with furniture.
Renovating and shopping for new furniture can be exciting, because of all of the possibilities it opens up. What exactly do you do when the house you want to furnish is completely empty? Think of an empty house as a blank canvas with an unlimited number of different paths you can take to approach it.
Furnishing an empty room can be challenging but furnishing an entire house can be significantly more stressful without a plan. There are some guidelines you can follow to make the process much more manageable and enjoyable.
Splurge on High Quality Pieces
Working with a budget is one of the most important things you should do when furnishing your house. Knowing how much to spend on each item is crucial, because you could very easily find yourself blowing your budget on a few items and not having enough money to work on the remaining rooms. If you are going to spend a lot of money on a piece of furniture, make sure it is a high quality, durable, and versatile piece that you can get a lot of use out of. Look for stores like The Foam Factory for quality pieces with positive customer reviews.
Stick to a Theme
When furnishing your first house you should work with a theme. Having a vision for the kind of ambiance you would like to create in your house can make it easier to structure and design each room. Before you purchase replacement cushions or a new lamp you just stumbled upon, think about how well they will match the overall theme you want to create. If there are too many pieces that clash and do not work together, your house will ultimately feel unorganized and messy.
