First thing first, before you paint your walls or buy your furniture, come up for a theme for your home. For example - If you like open spaces, opt for minimalism, if you have children – you can go for floral and animal themes for their rooms, if you are a young working person- opt for some warm tone theme and so forth. Once you know your theme, it will be a lot easier for you to know what to put.

2) Stay Neutral

If picking a theme is not something you think you can do, then go neutral for your big elements of your new home. Such as walls, floorings, curtains, kitchen cabinets and counters. Opt for Earthy tones such as beige, whites, light greys and caramel brown. Using such tones will help you play around much better with furniture and other décor items.
