Decorating Your New Home

Our San Diego movers know the one of the most fun tasks in your move will be decorating your new home. It’s the icing on the cake for your move that turns a new house into a new home. Our San Diego movers can’t resist providing you with some tips for decorating your new home.    

The Style 

While furniture stores create stylish displays of furniture groupings, home design websites and magazines offer a complete look filled with windows, doors and traffic pathways that really demonstrate the tone and feel of the room.  So, check out different types of home design websites and magazines to identify the styles that feel right for your new home.

Design for Users

Styles and fabric should accommodate the needs of people who will spend the most time in the room. Durable colors, textures and fabrics with scotch guard protection are well suited for rooms with children or snacking TV rooms. The more delicate look is best suited for formal bedrooms, living and dining rooms.   

Colors

Certainly, you’ve got ideas about the right colors to set the tone for the right mood of the room. You know the colors that will give you a great feel in your home. Since you’re likely to be in new home for quite some time, it’s often most comfortable to select colors that you won’t mind over time.

Complimentary Colors, Styles and Textures

Use your anchor piece of furniture to help select complimentary colors, styles and textures for the other pieces of furniture in your room.  Coupling an anchor piece with artwork or a rug featuring complimentary colors and styles can create a unified look in your room.  Pieces that hold second tier positions in the room can tie in with your artwork or rug’s complimentary colors and style. Add texture to a room with different fabrics or accents, such as pillows, for a real homey look.  

New Purchases

From a life planning standpoint, it’s a good idea to buy at least one high end piece of furniture each year until your new style is complete. This can be particularly fun to do when you move into a new home. Of course, knowing how long you plan to use the piece can help you gage how much you should spend on new purchases.  It’s also important to wait on new purchases until you are in your new home to identify how much space you have.
