The moment has finally come where you finally move in to your new home. You have spent your life savings paying for the home you have always dreamed of. With keys in hand, your next big concern is how you plan on furnishing it. You don’t have enough money to hire an interior decorator and it’s just too expensive to shop at Pier1 or Ashley Furniture Home. Luckily, interior decorating isn't just for those who have the money to pay professionals. In fact, really good home décor - getting your home to reflect your personality - is in some ways easier to do when you do it on the cheap.
When your financial resources are limited, it’s time to tap in to your creative side and use the resources you do have. Don't be hesitant to use your own, inexpensive interior decorating ideas and combine them with some used furniture and discount paint to make the space come alive.
Before you begin decorating your home it's best to ask yourself a few important questions:
- Do you plan to be in the home over the long term, or is it just a starter home?
- What furnishings can't you live without?
- What home décor ideas have you seen elsewhere and might like to adapt to your home?
