Top Tips for Starter Homes

Whether you’re a couple looking to settle into your own nest egg, or you’re finally ready to fly the nest by yourself, finding the right starter home is only half the battle.
 
Whilst it’s all well and good to opt for glitz and glamour, ensuring that you have a sizeable budget following your deposit is still important. Not only will this budget cover any interior changes you’d like to make, but it can be used as a safety pot for the future too.
 
Focusing on the interior of your starter home, there’s a lot you can do without overspending. Plus, there are plenty of tips to take advantage of when it comes to optimising space and other features of a home, some of which have been listed below.
 
Lighting
 
When it comes to illuminating your new home, it is important to ensure a flood of light, without making it too startling. The brightness you’re looking for will, of course, partly depend on how you plan to decorate that particular room.
 
For example, if you want a strictly minimalist bedroom, modern simplicity is the key, and a slightly brighter light can really help to open up the space. If, on the other hand, you’d prefer something a little more traditional, a warm yellow glow should suffice.
 
The style of your lighting can also make a big difference in a room. Whether you opt for floor lamps or wall lights, its design should reflect your personal style and blend with the interior of the room for the greatest effect.
 
Extensions
 
Though extensions can be quite costly, they really can make a difference to the overall look of your home. Whether you decide to build a conservatory on the back of your kitchen, or you’d prefer to extend a room by merging it with another, there are so many options if your budget allows for this type of renovation. If not, there are other ways to enhance the aesthetics of your starter home, one of which you can find below.
 
Fitted Designs
 
If an extension isn’t a feasible option, consider fitted designs. Not only do they help to open up a space, but they also help to blend it with the interior, making your house a home.
 
One such room that would benefit from this type of design is the kitchen, one of the most prominent areas of a home. A kitchen needs to allow for movement whilst catering to the exact needs of the couple, family or individual using it, which is why fitted designs are the perfect, pocket-friendly option.
