Buying a new home can be a stressful process for many, however, despite the legal transactions and of course the house price, it’s equally a super exciting time because you can destress through creativity, decorating your new home the way you want it and really make your mark on the new place.
Top tips before decorating your new home
Make a plan
Keep a file of all your ideas, sticking in wallpaper samples and magazine cut-outs. By planning you can create a priority list and devise a budget for decorating your new home.
Have a budget
By setting yourself a budget you can estimate costs for decorating the rooms within your house, and prioritise which rooms such as the living room and bedroom, will be transformed before others. This way you have full control of imminent costs in your new home.
Unless time is of the essence, don’t worry, there’s no rush to do everything at once! Take your time and get your decorating right first time instead of rushing into buying new things that you may not like later.
Know your room dimensions
To help you price and estimate decorating costs for your lounge, bedroom, kitchen or home office (or any other room) it’s a good idea to have a record of all of your room dimensions so that you can estimate your decorating spend.
Don’t buy everything at once*
It may be tempting to pick up new items for your home during all the excitement, although, as mentioned above, there’s no rush, you don’t need to complete every room of your house in one go. Getting your wallcoverings right is a great starting point for each room, which can then be followed by adding pieces of matching furniture and accessories.

One room at a time
Focusing on one room at a time will help to reduce stress, and will also provide a haven to relax and enjoy when you move on to the next room. It may seem like a slow process, but you will get there in the end and you’ll have beautifully decorated rooms in your new home.

Decorating ideas for your new home
Not only is minimalism bang on trend, but having neutral tones in your home is a great way of creating a modern, relaxing space as well as providing a blank canvass where you can then inject colour.
If you do like neutral tones, it might be worthwhile putting together a colour palette for your whole house in your plan so you can create a consistent flow of beautiful decor throughout your property.

When moving into a new home applying a textured wallpaper can be a great way to mask any uneven wall surfaces or imperfections, which may even save you the need to replaster the walls and its associated costs.
Not only that, textured wallpaper is very durable and can really add personality into a room.
