5 Tips to Get the Home You Want This Year

A new year is here which means it is time for resolutions and fresh new starts. New starts can be created at home, so let 2018 be the year to get the home you have always wanted. We are sharing 5 tips that will help achieve this fresh start. Cheers to a new year, new resolutions and creating a home you love!

1. Be Unique

Get outside of your comfort zone and explore your options. Sure, it may be easy to head to Target and buy ALL those popular pieces that you keep seeing everywhere on social media but what makes a house special are the unique pieces. Explore new stores. Try out new color schemes. Take risks by being different and creating a home that is special to you.


2. Quality Over Quantity

Focus on one area of your home at a time and make that space the best you can. Once you are happy with that area, try moving on to the next space. When multiple projects end up on a to-do list, it tends to get overwhelming and efforts are scattered throughout. This could end up with multiple half-done projects instead of focusing on one project at a time and creating a quality space that you truly love and are proud of.


3. Find Your Style

Many people are drawn to popular styles because they are constantly seeing them on social media or television. Expose yourself to new styles and find out what you really like. Don't decorate your house a certain way just because everyone else is doing it. Find your style and create a home you truly love with it.


4. A Place for Everything

Organization is key to having a beautiful and functional home. When everything in a home has a designated storage area, it creates less stress and clutter. This ultimately allows all the beautiful elements in the room to really take the spotlight. If you want to be proud of your home, this is one of the first steps to take!

5. Make a Plan

When approaching a room makeover, do your research and have a plan. Find inspiration, determine what styles you like and know your budget. Keeping these tips in mind will make the decorating process easier, save money and get the home you always wanted. If this whole process seems overwhelming, hire a designer to help bring your dreams into reality.
