6 Decorating Tips for Styling a New Home 

Have you recently moved and are tasked with figuring out how to design your space? At Bazaar Home Decorating, we know that the process of styling a new home can be exciting and daunting at the same time. The good news is that we are here to help! Take a look at six decorating tips that will provide you with direction and make the decorating process a breeze. 

1. One Room at a Time 

When you walk into your new home, it is only natural to look at the space as one whole project. The key is to take it one room at a time. While unpacking items that go in the kitchen and bathroom is typically the first step, we recommend decorating the family room first. This way, you can have a central gathering place where you can relax and determine the space you wish to tackle next.

2. Determine Your Color Scheme 

As you start to style your new home, are you interested in any particular colors? Starting off with the foundation colors like brown, white, black and gray is ideal. Then, you can determine which accent colors you want to fill the space. By following this method, you are able to tie in different rooms seamlessly.

3. Reuse Your Favorite Pieces 

Styling a new home does not mean that you have to depart with your favorite pieces. You can still use these items, but spice everything up. Whether you choose to move your side table to a different room or repurpose a mirror, there are so many opportunities for your favorite pieces to fit into your new space. There is also a chance that you switch up the layout of your current furniture to provide a better flow to the room!

4. Say Goodbye to Clutter

Some say that it’s best to depart with items prior to the move. However, you never know when you may need something in a certain space. It is ideal to declutter and remove items that you do not want or items that will not fit in with your color scheme or design style. By donating these pieces, you are allowing someone else to repurpose them and give them a loving home.

There is no better time to find new favorites than when you are moving into a new home. Once you determine your color scheme and what is missing from your space, finding new items that fit your style is an exciting step in the decorating process! Scroll through social media for inspiration and it will give you direction when you are purchasing new items.
