In the US, around 65.4% of people own their own homes. Closing on a house is a huge achievement and it’s a huge milestone in adulthood.
While you might feel ecstatic about going from renting to owning, it might feel strange to move into a new house, especially since you don’t have any fond memories (yet). You might even dread relocating to a property that you’re not familiar with.
In that case, read on to find out how to make your new house feel like a new home!
Place Family Photos Around
What’s the first thing you do when you’re assigned a new desk at work? Put pictures down, of course! Having the smiling faces of your loved ones can brighten up any space, so do this in your new house right away.
Don’t forget about your pets’ pictures too. The more, the merrier!
Hang Up Your Favorite Artwork
A new house’s walls can be plain and drab. Fix that right up by hanging up your favorite pieces of artwork!
To make things a little more familiar, try hanging them up in where they would be in your old house. If that’s not possible, then getting creative can help make your house feel like it’s yours. You came up with where to put these pieces of art, after all!
Get Some Houseplants
Houseplants can add a nice touch of green to a plain room. And their interesting colors and shapes will also instantly make the room warmer.
To really perk up your house, consider adding some flowering plants as well. Not only will it look pretty, but it’ll smell nice too!
Paint the Walls
Perhaps the last owner had bad interior decorating skills and the walls are a hideous color. Or maybe they’re painfully boring.
In either case, taking things into your own hands and painting the walls the colors you want can really make your new house feel like your home. Putting some work into your property gives it a touch of your own personality.
Get Some Interior Designers In
If you’ve got some spare cash, it can be worth it to work with some interior designers. Getting frustrated with home decorating won’t get you anywhere, so the touch of a pro can be just what it takes to transform your house into a home.
These experts will listen to what you want and then recommend some options. Their unique solutions will have your property feeling like you’ve lived in it for years!
