Whether you're considering selling your home in Idaho, or are just moving in there's nothing wrong with dressing up your home a little bit! While you want to err on the side of caution with too much personal style if you're selling (maybe not two dozen pink flamingos...in the living room!) it's fine to show a little pizzazz and doing a little light staging can even help your home sell. And of course, if you're just moving in just moving your stuff in is the first challenge - after which it's time to REALLY figure out how to make your new home your own. In order to help get you started we've put together just a few quick tips!
Shop Your Own Home
This is especially true if you've lived in your house for a while, but one of the best ways to discover something to your own tastes just might be to look at the stuff you already have! Long time homeowners can brave the attic to see what treasures they may have forgotten they had and if you're just moving in doing this while you're sorting is a great idea.
It's easy to get lost once you start looking on this great little site. Search for Pinterest and sign up if you haven't already - you can find literally thousands and thousands of great decorating ideas, recipes, and other fun tips for making your home life amazing.
No need to go crazy, but a fresh coat of paint can make old rooms seem completely new. If you're just moving in it's also a perfect time to do it before you get everything in place. Check around, even ask the person at the store, about current paint trends and ideas (check that pinterest site too!). Even just updating the accent colors in a room without going all in on full wall color changes can make a big impact!
If you've been in your home for a while it might be time to change out the pictures on the wall! There are any number of places online to find art prints, and even places where you can have your own photos turned into canvas prints. Changing the images in a space is a great, easy way to change the focus of a room and if you're just moving in it can help make it feel more your own too.
