Five Designer Tips To Do First When Buying a New Home

What are the first five things to update when buying a home?
1. Don’t Seek Instant Perfection
2. Start With The Bones
3. Practice Patience
4. Know Yourself
5. Have A Plan Before You Start

Buying a new home is an exciting time for anyone. It is a big step in life’s journey and can be a very stressful one. If you are purchasing a home, professionals agree that these tips should be followed from the start.

1. Don’t Seek Instant Perfection

“One of my big beefs with home improvement shows is that they set new homebuyers up for failure,” Karlie Adams, a Denver interior designer said. “People watching these shows think everything comes together so easily, then feel they need to have perfection instantly, when, in fact, they need to take their time.”

2. Start With The Bones

Instead of starting with the little design elements in a room, start with the floors, walls and windows. Once these are tackled you can slowly move inward in the space. “That may not seem so gratifying at first,” Adams said, “but it’s more prudent. People would rather buy toss pillows at Pottery Barn when they really should replace their baseboards.”

3. Practice Patience

Like with everything in life, a little patience can go a long way. Take your time and go slowly purchasing quality pieces that will be more of a design investment in your home.

4. Know Yourself

Figure out who you are as a person and build your look around your unique characteristics. The look of your home should be based on who you are. If you are a nature lover, using worn leather, weathered wood and rustic finishes are best. A perfect coffee table would be a three cross-section of tree trunks.

5. Have A Plan Before You Start

Don’t go into the kitchen and add a new sink and faucet to later realize you should have updated the whole kitchen. Have a plan in each space before you add anything. This will save you time and money in the long run. Remember your home is a big investment.
