Tips for furnishing your first home for little money!

Essentials to furnish your first house

If you have never lived solo, you will not be aware of what furniture is essential when it comes to furnishing your first home. That is why we want to propose a very simple task. Make your own list of “basic furniture”. Why? It is obvious that what is essential for one person can be bullshit
for another. Sure we agree on many sections, but still, the list of your essentials will be personal and unique, like you. And then decide on your personal budget. A personal finance spreadsheet can be useful for this

Main rules

-In the bedroom: a bed with its mattress and a closet (or object that does the function of storing clothes) About the bed, we can tell you that comfort is very important. Do not hesitate to invest in a good bed and a good mattress.

The wardrobe is essential to carry a certain order with the clothes, but it is not necessary to buy a wardrobe at first. You can use the well-known “hanging bars” for clothes. The rest of the bedroom furniture can be added little by little, as your economy recovers.

Hanging bars, are very functional and very cheap!

-In the bathroom: everything you need in the bathroom is already included in the apartment. To say something, if you have space, a shelf or storage cabin will be handy. But it isn’t urgent either unless you are going to live with many people at home.

-In the living room: we will agree that the sofa is one of the basic furniture that can’t not be missing in any home. Coffee tables, TV cabinet, etc … can wait. Stay with simple living room ideas. You can find many examples of interior design for small living room in our blog.

The sofa is one of our essentials. Your choice, of more or less quality, will depend on the hours you spend on it.

-In the dining room: Before deciding to buy the dining room furniture, think about this question. Are you wine and dine with friends or family? Well, in this case, you will need a table with some chairs. In the event that you don’t receive people at home, or that you have table service in the kitchen, this step can be ignored as well.

If you think that your dining room will be tarnished with just a table and chairs, take inspiration from this image. A simple sheet or picture can fill the room completely.

-In the kitchen: If you have space for a table and chairs, they are great for informal meals, quick dinners or breakfasts. We usually recommend, if you don’t have space for a table, you can decide to place a high bar counter with stools. That can serve as table and work surface.

Internet: the paradise of cheap furniture

How to find cheap furniture on the internet? We put in total saving mode and we give you tips to save up when buying furniture online.

  • Wait periods of sales, offers, promotions. In addition, many furniture chains offer monthly discounts on a selection of their products. If you know what you want, wait for that piece to appear in the promotions catalog, since there is usually a rotation of new collections. I did it that way with the furniture in my bedroom and I saved a considerable amount of money.
  • Beneficiate Social Network campaigns. Nowadays, all online stores have a presence in Social Networks. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are the reference portals. Here they usually do great campaigns to retain customers. From punctual discounts to free shipping, and even fabulous raffles. Follow them so you won’t miss anything!
  • Buy in the outlets. Many stores or manufacturers with distribution have their own outlet. You will find products from old collections, discontinued pieces, and even display product. Of course all with good discounts on their sale price. You can find lots of cheap home decor.
  • Learn how to search. And now you will think that you already know how to search and that I am stupid. Well, I don’t want to offend anyone, just in case you don’t really dominate the internet, I give you some tips. Suppose you already know what furniture you want. Its price can vary greatly from one store to another. The first advice I give you is to search by brand, model and reference. Think that; more precise your search, better results you will get. In this way, you will find more stores that distribute the exact same product. And so you can compare their price. The second is to search by image. Keep in mind that the same piece of furniture can be called completely different depending on stores, but the photo will always be the same. Download the photo to your computer and then upload it to google images. And investigate!

And don’t be limited to furniture only. Stay on hard-core saving mode. Decoration, appliances, clothing, accessories, and much more. Take advantage of the online business in all sectors.
