Buying a new house can conjure a special mix of nerves, excitement and dread. The inspection, the loans, the envisioning of a new future…yet transforming your new house into a “home” can be an exciting process. Here are a few tips to finding the right home furnishings to turn your new house into the cozy home you’ve always been dreaming of:
- Assess Your Essentials – Every home-owner has the “essential” furnishings in mind. The trick is to simply narrow the field to a select number. Try for 4-6 furnishings that are “must-haves” (whether these be a plasma TV stand, coat rack, jelly cupboard or toy chest is up to you). Simply create a list, prioritizing the pieces in order, and stick to it! You’d be surprised how helpful it can be to clearly articulate and define what exactly you’re looking for.
- Keep An Eye On Quality – In the world of home furnishings, solid wood furniture, and traditionally-crafted Amish furniture are considered to be the pinnacle of quality. Yet there are a number of alternatives to the traditionally-crafted furniture route. Many of today’s furnishings are crafted from a variety of materials and in a variety of styles.
