Starting out in a new home can be extremely exciting however, it can come along with a host of challenges for those who have just dipped their toes in the property ladder pond. However, we have listed some of the best tips for new home owners that won’t burst the bank this year.

Implement Effective Heating

First of all, those dreaded winter months are never too far away. So why not start out with investing in some excellent new radiators to keep your house nice and cosy when the temperatures begin to drop.

Often this task can be seen as a rather expensive task however, Trade Radiators offer the most competitive prices on the market and promise to beat the price of the same brands if offered at a lower price. For a more modern touch, why not try out the stunning vertical white Saturn designer radiators. Coming in all different shapes, sizes, textures and styles, you will not be stuck for choice.

Invest in Durable Furniture

Starting out in a brand-new home with your loved one can be thrilling and can involve you hosting a number of house warming and after parties for your friends. So, with that being said, it is highly recommended that any new home owner invests in highly durable furniture that will be both stylish and long lasting.

If pennies are tight for you this year, you may also think about pinching a few spare items like couches or coffee tables from your friends or family to fill up your home. This way, if there are any wild parties going on in your home, you won’t have to spend the night panicking over whether or not people are being careful not to spill their wine on the sofa or not! If you like to get right involved in the designing of your living space, upcycling is also a creative and cost-effective way of doing up your new home.

Shop Around

Moving out into your first ever home can be expensive. We highly recommend shopping around when it comes to picking the interior design for your home. Thanks to the wonders of Amazon and budget shops like B&M stores, you can have that stylish interior décor that you’ve always dreamed of for less than imagined.

From funky wallpapers to kitchen dining sets and bathroom accessories, there are endless high street options to choose from when embarking on your first ever home adventure. No matter your taste on colour schemes and designs, there is something out there for everyone no matter how tight the budget is.

If you enjoy the buzz of sales shopping, save up your money for when the sales hit the stores as you will find some brilliant offer and deals on various house decorations, furnishings and appliances for a fraction of the price.

If It’s Not Broken Don’t Fix It

Our number one piece of advice when spending the first year or two in a new home is ‘if it’s not broken don’t fix it’. This is often a mistake made by many new home owners who thing that they need to revamp their living areas on a monthly basis to keep up with trends.

Keep it simple by making small changes to your home throughout the year to keep it looking fresh. A fresh lick of paint of adding new, refreshed accessories to your house will make it look and feel like completely new décor. Save up your money for the bigger things in life so that you can take that well deserved trip to a tropical destination with the one you love at the end of the year!

However, make sure you keep a handy tool kit in your cupboard in the off chance that little thing need tightened or loosened over the upcoming year!
