Now that you have purchased it, how do you make it really feel like home? Our DFW Realtors have a few tips that will have your new DFW home feeling like your favorite pair of comfy shoes in no time!
A little paint goes a long way. Painting is one of the cheapest and easiest way to update your space. Whether you want to lighten things up in the family room with a lighter color on the walls or add a splash of bold color in the home office, a little paint will make a huge difference.
Once the paint has dried, spice up your spaces with wall decor. Family pictures and artwork add dimension and interest to your spaces. Bare walls are a blank canvas just waiting for your special touch! Mix it up with your favorite artwork, photos and more.
Incorporate a few plants. Whether on the kitchen windowsill or on a beautiful plant stand in the family room, plants not only improve the air quality and bring energy into a home, they’re often colorful and beautiful. A little greenery adds a fresh touch to your spaces.
Wood, textiles, metals and glass, oh yes! No one wants their home to feel too “perfect” and untouchable. For a comfortable look that makes everyone who enters your home feel welcome and relaxed, mix things up a bit. A glass vase or tabletop, wooden chest, brass or copper accents, colorful throw pillows on the sofa, a richly textured throw draping a rocking chair – you get the idea. When you add those things that make you feel good chances are others will get that feeling, too.
Enjoy a great meal with family and friends. Whether in your new kitchen or outdoors on the patio or deck, nothing makes it feel like home more than enjoying good food, drink and conversation with family and friends. So what if you don’t have everything in its place yet? Take a breather from all the work and just relax and enjoy yourself. You deserve it!
Don’t be in too big a rush to get everything done; making your new home feel like “home sweet home” takes time. Hopefully these tips will help you get the ball rolling.
