As a newlywed, you probably just spent money on your wedding and honeymoon and may not have a surplus of cash lying around to use for decorating your home. There are numerous budget-friendly, and some totally free ways to put your personal touch on your home. Approach your decorating projects with an open mind and a spirit of adventure.
One immediately accessible place for locating free furniture is your parent’s home. They may have tables and chairs that have been collecting dust in the basement, attic or storage building for years. A serious cleaning or possibly a fresh coat of paint can revive that furniture so that it can become an attractive part of your home. Changing the hardware on the drawers or doors of vintage furniture will give it the updated appearance needed to blend in with your decor.
Clearance sales, both in online sites and at stores in your local area offer good deals on basic household furnishings and occasionally on unique items that would look impressive in your newly decorated home. Accent tables and chairs can often be chosen as a reflection of your personality. The chairs might be upholstered in bold, energizing colours to match the vibrant and passionate energy the two of you share and you might find some artistically designed tables that reflect your free spirit.
As a newlywed couple, you will want to create an attractive, romantic and relaxing bedroom design. The major purchases for this room should be the bed and the mattress. The ultimate bed would be a king size bed. When you begin looking for a king size mattress you will find them to be a bit pricey. However, a mattress is more of an investment in your well being than just a bedroom accessory. Comparison shopping will help you locate the best prices. When you shop for bed sets, try to concentrate on the times when stores have the best deals such as end of season sales and post holiday sales.
Include various types of lighting in the bedroom for mood setting moments. Wall sconces are ideal for romantic lighting. Bedside table lamps or swing arm lamps on each side of the bed are considerate and attractive bedroom lighting options. You can create a luxurious, sensuous bedroom with textured bedding, rugs and pillows.
Housewares can be acquired over a period of time as you become accustomed to the daily activities of cooking, cleaning and maintaining order in the house. Whoever cooks or does laundry most often should decide the homewares for those chores. Whoever is the organizer should choose the closet and cabinet organizational systems. Bathroom accessories should also be defined separate spaces for each of you and control counter clutter.
