Furnishing Your New Home

Now that you’ve purchased a new home, it’s time to add your personal touches and set the style of your home with personal belongings and furnishings. Furnishing your new home is a reflection of your personal taste and expression but can often be expensive. Having to spend a lot of money on new home furnishings just after purchasing a new home can be a frustrating and stressful experience. However, if you do some research and are willing to take your time, you can make it the exciting and enjoyable experience that it should be.

Getting Started

Initially, you may need to keep the furniture and other furnishings from your old house so that you can develop your new home furnishing one room at a time in order to spread out the cost over a longer period of time. You may also want to refurbish some of your existing furniture to match the style of your new home instead of buying new furniture right away.

If you have the time, you might want to visit yard and moving sales. It’s sometime possible to get very high quality furnishings at incredibly low prices at moving sales. There are also many online sources such as Craigslist and other online classified listings where you can shop for what you need at very affordable prices.

You can also get great deals on floor samples at furniture stores, especially during the summer months when most stores are turning over their inventory to help with furnishing your new home without breaking the bank. Pieces of furniture that get a lot of use such as couches and beds may be worth buying new as they will last much longer and hold up better to continual use. If you find a piece of furniture that you really have to have, you can ask the store manager about purchasing the floor sample and often get a greatly discounted price.

Renting Furnishings

For people who relocate often for business, or are in the military and may be transferred every few years, renting furniture can be a great option. It can save a lot of money up front, but also make moving much simpler and less expensive as you won’t need to take all of your furniture with you each time you move. Even if you plan on staying in your home for a long time it might be worth renting at least some of your furniture until you can afford to buy the pieces you want. For a small monthly fee, you can rent-to-own or just rent temporary pieces until you can afford the new furniture and furnishings to finish out your new home exactly the way you want.
