Putting Your Stamp On Your New Home

If you’ve just moved house, and you love the place, but you feel like it isn’t quite you, it could be time to put your own stamp on the place.

Moving home is as exciting as it is stressful, but once the good movers at Allied Van Lines have safely deposited your stuff at your new place, you can start to breathe a sigh of relief and start thinking about the fun part – decorating your home to suit your style! Here are some tips to help you with that:

Do One Room at a Time

Focusing on one room at a time, not moving on until each space has been finished will help to keep your redecoration efforts manageable and stress-free, so if you do nothing else in this post, be sure to do that.

The Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home, so you’re gonna want to really put your stamp on that. One way you can do that simply, without going over budget, is to sand down and repaint your kitchen cupboards and units. This can take a bit of time, but it has the ability to completely transform the space. Don’t have time for that? Choose new appliances in your favorite shade of red, pink or chrome and dot them around the space for a quick fix.

The Living Room

Chances are you’ll spend most of your time in the living room, so decorating it to your taste really matters. If you happen to have moved into a neutral space, you can easily spice it up by painting or wallpapering a feature wall in a color you love, adding cushions and blankets in a style you love or by hanging personal photos and artworks from the wall.

If the space isn’t neutral, then you may have to repaint it all, but if you don’t have the time to do that right now, hanging big swathes of fabric from the walls can act as a quick fix until you’re ready to redecorate.

The Bathroom

Installing new bathrooms can be really expensive, stressful and time-consuming, so you may not be able to do that right away. Luckily, there are some things you can do to make your bathroom more bearable in the meantime. Simple things like sticking tile transfers and wall stickers onto tiles you hate, to mask them a little, adding new shower screens that you love, and regrouting the tiles to refresh the room a little can all work well, as can adding splashes of color in the form of towels and bathroom accessories.

The Bedrooms

It’s often easier to add your own touch to the bedrooms because the bed itself takes up a little space, so if you have a headboard and bedding your love, you’ve covered a lot of ground already. Other than that, hanging pretty curtains, floor cushions, rugs and art can all help to personalize the space and cover up the parts that you don’t like until you can do something more permanent.

Have fun putting your own stamp on your new place.
