Decorating Tips for Your New Home

Decorating your new home can be a fun experience, but it can also be overwhelming. To help alleviate some of this stress, Gardner Moving has put together some expert tips and tricks for decorating your new home.

Start with a Floorplan

You’ll first need to gather the measurements of the room you want to decorate, and then you can put them to use in a floorplan that will offer you a bird’s eye view of your entire home. Before you can successfully decorate, you need to know your space and what the limitations are.

Consider creating a floorplan of the home using paper, a pencil, and a ruler. You can also use an app such as Floor Plan Creator to make the process easier.

Decorate in Phases

Before you move your furniture in or begin hanging up family photos, you will want to make sure you complete other tasks such as painting, drywall, refinishing hardwood floors, etc.

Doing everything in phases rather than all at once can prevent getting paint on your furniture or other decor and keep the process more organized.

Make Use of Natural Light in the Kitchen

The kitchen is the central room of your home where you share meals, do homework, entertain family and friends, and so much more. Keep this room bright and cheery by opting for sheers rather than heavy and outdated drapes. The sheers will keep things bright and allow the natural light to shine in.

We recommend choosing colors that don’t fade, such as lighter neutral colors, and consider fabrics such as silk blends, cotton, and linen that hang nicely.

Use Light, Neutral Colors on the Walls

We recommend a palette of gray, beige, or other neutral colors, especially on the first floor, where the flow of your decorating is crucial. With neutral walls, you have great flexibility in how you can decorate and switch up your decor as you please.
Neutral colors will also prevent jarring transitions between your rooms and create a more cohesive appearance.

Hire Local Movers to Make The Process Smooth

Once you’ve done your painting, laid new carpet, or finished your hardwood floors, it’s time to move your furniture and other items into the home. To help make this process easier, hire your local movers at Gardner Moving. We will handle your items with care and transport them to your new home.
