How to Furnish Your First Home | Adulting 101

Myself and my partner were recently accepted on our first home, so we are now proudly renting a beautiful flat! So today I wanted to run through some pointers that will not only help you spread the cost of everything you'll need to buy but also help you have everything you need before you even consider moving! 

Start a bottom draw before you even consider moving, buying little things for a long time will save you so much more money in the long run!

Spread the cost of larger items, if you have to buy a fridge/freezer/washing machine and you can't afford to buy all 3 at once try spreading the cost over a few months - a year. 

Hitting places like Primark, B&M, Poundland etc, will give you so much creativity with decor without breaking the bank!!

But investing in pieces like cushions for your sofa will give your home an expensive feel without breaking the bank on everything. 

Accessorising your home opposed to buying large pieces of furniture will not only make it easier when you want to redecorate but will make moving around hassle free. 

If you have a smaller home, utilising colour can make a massive difference!!! For example, our bedroom is white so using white wardrobes and draws with our dark black bed frame will create contrast but also make the room look bigger ... illusion. 

 What are your top tips?
