Parry Custom Homes, a premier Pittsburgh on your lot builder, knows that purchasing a new home is one of the most exciting times for a buyer! However, it can also come with a great deal of stress not only getting to closing day, but then moving into your new home. The worst feeling for a new homeowner is getting moved into your new home, only to realize your new home has a completely different floor plan than your previous one, and your furniture will no longer work in the new home. The same often goes for accessories, often times in a new home plan they are not going to work like they did in your old home. However if you find yourself in this situation, before you let panic set in remember, this is actually a good thing. Your new Parry Custom Home is a clean slate! And no, it doesn’t mean you have to throw everything else out and start new.
You might have looked at everything in your old house with the accessories and furniture the same place for years and years, but now they can have a new home and purpose. When you purchase a new outfit, sometimes things you already own will go with it, sometimes they won’t. Maybe you will put something with it that you might not have thought of before and it looks great. Think of your décor the same way. By changing up the furniture placement, accent pillows, artwork and accessories in a room, it will give the home a whole new feel.
Just because you have always had a certain picture in the dining room at your old home, it doesn’t mean it has to be in the dining room in your new home. Maybe it would be perfect over the sofa in the living room now or in the office. You may find it easier when you move in your new Parry Custom Home, to group all similar items together (all lamps, photo frames, candle holders, ect.) and this way you can take a visual inventory of everything that you have to work with.
Then start adding the accessories that coordinate together to each room. Consider gathering 3 accessories and placing them together. Add a table lamp or a plant to direct your eye to details in the room that may not have stood out in your old home.
It’s best to keep your furniture neutral and add color to things that are easily changed, like pillows, picture frames or a throw blanket. The design possibilities are endless when you move using everything you already own, only displaying them in a whole new way.
Let your creativity flow. Remember, nothing is nailed down. If you don’t like it, you can move it. The options are limitless in creating your new space in your new Parry Home.
If you are moved into your new Parry Home this Memorial Day weekend, enjoy this extended time off of work to really have fun with decorating your new home, with your ‘old’ items! They will quickly feel like new again when they find the right place in your new home!
