The time has come. You’ve moved into your new home and have unpacked all of your belongings. You are staring into an empty space filled with opportunity when suddenly it hits you – you haven’t got a clue on what home design you should go with. There is a plethora of useful information currently available to the consumer on this subject. However, doing all of the research yourself can be very time consuming and a bit overwhelming.

No need to fret, we’ve done all of the hard work for you. So you can focus less on where to find reliable content and more on putting that knowledge to good use! We’ve pulled (which we believe to be) some of the greatest resources online when it comes to home design advice.

Getting Started & Finding Your Style

This would appear to be the most daunting part of the process. Where do you begin? In what room? Which furniture? We know the thought of it can be a bit scary, which is why we were so happy to find this article online “Here’s How to Decorate Your Home From Scratch (It’s Easier Than You Think)”. Freshhome.com is an extensive and reliable resource for the latest news on all things home design & architecture. This particular article is a great place to start when looking to design your own house as it offers useful tips for those who are lacking design inspiration.

Author Cynthia Bowman advises that the very first step in this process should begin with figuring out your decorating style. She features the 4 most popular home decorating styles (with photos included) in hopes to guide you in the direction of narrowing down your own style.  

Other tips include: breaking your plan down by room, designing around a large wall piece, and working with free design services.

“The fastest way to get overwhelmed by an empty new home is by trying to decorate the whole house at once. Prioritize what rooms are most important to you and make a decorating plan, one room at a time! Maybe you’ll want to start with your bedroom, living room and laundry room. Pick two or three rooms maximum and plan to decorate them one at a time.” – Cynthia Bowman
