Are you in the market for a new townhome? If so, congratulations – it's an exciting time! Before you can move in and start enjoying your new space, there are some things you'll need to take care of…
A big part of making your new home feel like home is furnishing it in a way that suits your style and needs. To help you get started, here are some tips to keep in mind when outfitting your new space.
Consider Your Lifestyle
Do you have kids? Are you a family with pets? Do you work from home? All of these things will impact the kind of furniture you buy, and where it happens to go. Consider how your furniture and the layout you choose will impact how you live in your new space.
Gone are the days of just picking a couch based on color. You need to consider things like whether it's child-friendly, tucks away into a corner where you can use your living room as an office or play area, and of course the overall comfort level.
Aesthetic beauty is important, but functionality is key. Especially if you're in a townhome with limited space. So consider your lifestyle needs before falling in love with any specific pieces.
At our townhouse community, the Towns at Parke West, you never have to sacrifice because of space. Our three bedroom, attached garage townhomes offer the ideal balance of space and function, with over 2,085 square feet of living area.
Create A Budget And Stick To It
Before you grab your credit card and hit the stores, decide what you can afford. Buying a new place is a big expense, and furniture can be costly too. If you just bought your townhouse recently, you may not be able to do everything you want right away.
Draw up a list of all the rooms in your house and write down what pieces you'll want for each space. You could even use a software like Plan Your Room or Room Designer to pick out furnishings and see how each room would look. Then start to average out the price you would pay for each new piece of furniture.
How many rooms were you able to furnish within your budget? Could you choose to furnish a room or two, but not all of them?
As you start to apply your budget towards the rooms in your new townhome, think about where you can cut costs. What can be left unfinished until a later date when you have more money?
Don't Forget About The Extras
When you're furnishing a new home, it's easy to think about the main pieces you'll need, like a couch, coffee table, or dressers. But don't forget about other furnishings like storage solutions, art pieces, decor to hang on the walls, lighting and more.
