Buying a first apartment means starting a new life. This happy moment comes with some serious responsibilities. Amidst all the excitement, you might make a few mistakes when decorating it. Have a look at some tips for making the right decisions:
Mistake #1 Buying all furniture at once
The first thing we want to do in our new apartment is to fill its empty rooms with pieces of furniture. But buying all furniture at once can be a mistake.
Instead, make a list of major items you need in order of importance. For example, a table and chairs are must-have items at home. Avoid adding a coffee table and a sofa to them before closely checking your budget.
Mistake #2 Filling empty rooms too quickly
Speedy decisions are more likely to be mistakes especially when it comes to home design. A room decoration looks like a puzzle - you piece carpets, accessories, and lighting together to create a cozy space. They are supposed to combine one another harmoniously. Take things slow and start home decoration with planning. First, buy one item and then think about what kind of furnishings and lighting will work well with it. This way the puzzle will be successfully solved.
Mistake #3 Buying all accessories from one place
One of the major rules to follow while decorating rooms is to purchase items from different furniture stores. Home should reflect your style and taste and buying all furnishings from a single place will only show a specific store's style.
An apartment slowly turns into a “home” by bringing accessories into it. These accessories can be souvenirs from your trips or second-hand markets. Each item carries a separate story, adding a personal touch to your home. Browse multiple stores to get hold of items that emphasizes your character.
Archi offers its residents Archi Cards, a loyalty card from the company, that enables them to buy a wide range of décor and furniture accessories at great discounts.
Mistake #4 Buying only cheap items
Buying a new apartment involves great expenses. The biggest part of an apartment budget is taken by the renovation process, leaving a small amount of money for furniture, household appliances, and accessories. However, quality is not something that can be compromised.
Buying low-quality furnishings or household appliances means you will have to replace them in a short period of time. It is even more problematic when you buy a massive piece of furniture because replacing it every now and again will not be easy.
If you have bought an apartment from one of the Archi completed residential buildings, your apartment will be equipped with a Premium Frame. Premium Frame includes a white frame added with heating pipes and low-E glasses, so the only thing that residents are left to do is a cosmetic renovation. Our tips will help you avoid making those mistakes that are common when moving into a new apartment.
