Purchasing your first home is one of life's most exciting milestones. But once the space is yours, next comes a truly daunting task- furnishing it! Decorating a home can be a costly and time consuming experience but we've put together a few helpful tips to ensure it is an enjoyable one.

-Know your space. While perusing Pinterest and Instagram can be inspirational it can also cause you to become overwhelmed with ideas for your interior. Take measurements, and images of your space before shopping and be realistic about what can be done in your space. If you are dreaming of an oversized sectional but live in a small studio, you may have to compromise with a cozy down-filled condo sofa.

-Do your research. Get online and brush up on some basic furniture jargon. Learn the difference between veneer and solid wood and down-filled vs. fiber. Read reviews for furniture manufacturers to get real customer feedback. Don't be afraid to ask questions to ensure you have a full understanding of what you are purchasing.

-Prioritize. Furnishing an entire home can be costly. Make note of what is most important to you. Do you enjoy spending time on the couch? Invest in a quality one that will last. Do you love to entertain? There are many amazing custom dining table options to choose from. Is your space limited? Make a dramatic statement with a bold painting.
