Good news! The seller accepted your offer and you’re on the way to owning your first home. If you’re going from a smaller apartment or if you’ve never lived on your own, you may not own everything you need, and will probably be on a fairly tight budget. Don’t become overwhelmed with worrying about what you don’t have, instead, strategically invest in what you need. Here are some things to consider:
Which furniture pieces are must haves?
Don’t worry too much about making sure you have a nice floor rug, or a china cabinet right away, but you will need living room furniture, kitchen, and bedroom essentials. If you find something like a sofa, recliner, or bed and fall in love, you can treat it like an investment in your future because you’ll likely have it for many years to come.
Decorating on a budget
Luckily, the idea of less-is-more is in style right now. This makes it easier to decorate on a budget, by allowing you to focus on a few pieces that add flair and help your room make a statement without cluttering it. You can get the few major pieces you need without breaking the bank, and make fun DIY projects out of what else you need.
