Happy Valentine’s Day from McGuire Moving & Storage! Are you planning to move in with your sweetheart? Maybe buying or renting your first place together? Soon to be married and planning your living space? The season of love is in the air, and we wanted to take this opportunity as your trusted St. Louis moving company to give you a few of our favorite tips for decorating the rental home or apartment that you share with your partner.
- Take a walk through of your home, take a note pad, write down everything that you’d like to change in each room – what color scheme should this room be? Is the furniture arranged in the best way? What ways can we utilize this space better?
- Go shopping! If you’re on a tight budget, second hand shops and barn sales are great places to find unique décor for your home. Go test out your style!
- Do some research, look up DIY projects online and in books – there are so many projects that you and your partner can do together to make your space a special one.
It doesn’t matter if it’s only your first or second home! You and your beloved have taken the leap to move in together, and you want to make your space feel like it’s something to celebrate, like it’s something that you can share together and get excited about. But how do you renovate an apartment or house to make it feel like it’s your own? As your most reliable St Louis moving company, we like to keep our eyes open for home design ideas, and we have found an article that not only keeps things easy, but cheap! Check out this huffington post article, explaining 11 different ways to liven up your rental home. Of course, you can use these tips in your owned home as well.
If you’re new to sharing a home with somebody else, finding a style that matches both of your tastes can be a very exciting and fun time. Don’t let the daunting task of compromise stop you! Keep it light, keep it simple, and keep it fun and don’t forget the flowers and chocolates!
Best of luck!
