Buying a new (or used, dated) home is overwhelming in and of itself. Getting to that closing date takes a lot of work, energy, and (dare I say?) a few tears. After purchasing the home or condominium, though, you will begin to realize that your work has just begun. Decorating a home to your taste does not have to be a long, arduous process. Just take it one room at a time.
Taking your home’s decor one room at a time takes discipline, but depending upon your budget, this can be an important and necessary ideal. Why? Well, here are just a few of the many compelling reasons to decorate slowly.
1. Going room by room, making wise decisions as you go, ensures that you will get exactly what you want out of your home. Your home will serve your purposes and meet your goals. Rather than choosing to do everything at once, you will be able to think through each one of your rooms independently of the other, answering the question, “What do I want this room to accomplish?”
2. Taking things one room at a time will provide you with the opportunity to invest in pieces rather than just getting by with affordable items. As you make the decision to address various rooms and decorate slowly, you will be able to plan for major purchases, investing in well-built couches that fit your frame and your needs, rugs that resist staining and can even be hosed off outside if some disaster occurs, and lovely, unique wall paper installed professionally.
3. Decorating slowly, room by room, requires an amount of discipline, meaning that you have to consider and decide upon a theme that must run throughout the entirety of the home. Though you may not get there overnight, your end goal — in terms of the look and the theme — must and shall remain consistent in order to achieve a unified existence.
