Quick Ideas for Making Your New House a Home

Congratulations, you have moved!  Moving into a new home is exciting, stressful, and tiring and it opens a whole new chapter in your life.  But, turning that new house into a home can be a challenge, especially if you are on a budget.  Here are some quick ideas to make that new house a home, without breaking the bank.

Paint the Walls

Just thinking about painting can tire you out, but don’t let that stop you.  Changing up the color of the walls in your house after you move in can give it that fresh look you need.  It’s always easier to paint before you get settled.

Decorate the Windows

Bare windows in a new house can be uninviting, especially at night.  Instead of tacking up a sheet or leaving the windows bare, why not get a few Roman shades installed?  There are plenty of deals on these shades, which add a touch of class and décor to any room.

Arrange the Furniture

The way you arrange the furniture directly affects the design of any room.  Work out your furniture arrangement on paper before actually moving anything around.  Create conversational groupings and use nontraditional pieces.

Pillows and Throws

Throw blankets and pillows aren’t expensive and can really dress up any room.  These add a touch of texture immediately and require very little work.  All you need to do is pick the pillow and toss it on the sofa!  Just keep in mind a cohesive color scheme.


Dark rooms are just as uninviting as bare windows, so brighten them up when you move in!  Adequate lighting can make your new house seem homier and can add a touch of style to any room.  Lamps and lighting schemes can bring an entire room together at minimal cost.
