Decorate Your First Home without Breaking the Bank

If you’ve just bought your first home, you may be finding it hard to settle in and make the space your own. You probably want to fill the house with new furniture and decorations, but if you’re like most of us you’ve spent most of your savings on your mortgage and moving. Although we can’t show you how to make money appear magically, we can give some solid tips on decorating your new digs without spending a fortune!


First of all, start with the walls. If they’re plain white choose some colors to brighten the rooms. Look for some paint company websites that offer virtual decorating and you can see a mockup of each room before you buy the paint.

Second, remember you don’t have to have new furniture to make a room look fresh. Look for quality accessories such as those found at Brylane Homes, where you can find everything from bedding sets to kitchen appliances.

Before you start to shop download the Groupon app and the Brylane Home coupon. That way you can access even greater savings. Once you’re on the Brylane website take a look at the clearance and markdowns first. That way you can see the lowest prices on sale items and get a good idea of what’s not going to be available much longer.

Because you probably won’t be able to decorate the entire house at once it’s a good idea to plan it room by room. Then you can start making lists of what you like for each room and begin a makeover on each. For example, if you want to do your master bedroom first select your color scheme and then choose one of the wide selection on bedding collections available with the Brylane Home coupon. Then you can add coordinating items for the walls and master bath, such as towels, dispensers, and wall hangings.

Repeat the process with each room as your budget allows, and add to your decorating with yard sale and consignment store finds whenever possible. Before you know it you’ll have a beautiful home that’s all your style!
