Bought A New Build & Overwhelmed About Decorating? Here's The Advice You Need

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

New build properties are incredibly popular, offering a chance to truly create a home from scratch. You don’t have to worry about tearing down the strange wallpaper that the previous occupant used, or covering up the wear-and-tear dents in the walls so you can apply paint - everything in a new build is fresh, pristine, and ready to realize your design dreams.

Nevertheless, as appreciative as most new build owners are of the “blank slate” state of their property, the experience can be more than a little… overwhelming. Feeling that there’s simply too much to do is not uncommon, and the good news is that it can be effectively addressed. Here are a few tips that you may find beneficial. 

 

1. Remember That You Can Take As Much Time As You Need

One of the great benefits of new builds is that you don’t have to live with unpleasant decor while you wait for each room to receive attention. Yes, the decor will just be neutral and a little boring, but it’s at least relatively inoffensive. You’ll want to start decorating sooner rather than later, but there’s no imaginary clock over your head - you’ve got time, so let yourself settle into your new home, and then turn your mind to your decorating task when you feel ready.
