New House or New Home?

New House or New Home? feature

So you’ve turned the key to your brand new house. It’s a hugely exciting end to your building journey, but it’s also a new beginning.

The start of a new chapter for everyone who lives under the roof, where life-long memories will be made. While there’s no doubt your new home is beautiful, there’s always room to make it more homely. There are some easy ways for new home builders to create a cosy environment that really feels like home. Start with focusing on these three areas;

Lighting

The right lighting is so important to the overall feel of your home. It’s also the quickest and easiest ways to improve the mood of a space. If you’re only using overhead lights, you’re missing out on so many options (although built-in dimmers certainly come in handy to change how light an area is). Floor and table lamps can instantly create an atmosphere that’s comfortable and cosy for you and your guests. If you’re open to it, natural sources of lighting such as fireplaces and room candles will definitely make your new house feel more like home.

Colour

As a new home builder, you would have carefully chosen paint colours for your new home. Think of the walls as your base. You’ll build on the base with furniture and accessories such as rugs, cushions and artwork. Choosing warm and natural tones like timbers, browns and copper accents create a cosy feel, but as it’s your home, you must stay true to colours which you truly connect with. For your walls, well-chosen artwork will also add colour and interest. Just make sure you take your time when choosing art for your new home. What you have on the walls should reflect who you are, what you like, and what makes you happy every day.

Texture

The word ‘texture’ isn’t a technical term reserved for interior decorators. All you need to focus on when it comes to texture in your ‘new house to new home’ project is to add more soft surfaces to the existing hard ones. Get cosy with big cushions on couches and beds. Even simple touches, such as always having an extra throw blanket within reach in a living area and bedroom will make a huge difference. Soft rugs, lounges and curtains will also provide some acoustical value so noises aren’t echoing in an empty space.
