So, you’ve taken the plunge and purchased your first family home—no easy feat, in today’s market. When it comes time to furnishing and decorating, it’s easy to become overwhelmed, frustrated, and (frankly) shocked at the cost. We’re here to help you furnish your place affordably but stylishly, so that you and your family end up loving your first home and can spend your money on what really counts (like fun day trips with the family). Whether you’re on a tight budget, style-challenged, or somewhere in between, here are some tips on where and how to buy the best homewares for your new home—fixer upper, McMansion, or otherwise.

With a first family home, you want to be a little thriftier; after all, you’ve probably just spent your savings on getting your first home, so it’s smart to be a little crafty when it comes to shopping for furnishings. Second-hand stores carry fantastic furniture with tons of character, especially if you like the vintage, antique look. If not, hone your DIY skills with a little paint and elbow grease: you’ll love the feeling of building your home from curated pieces you’ve found rather than buying a complete set from a big box store.

2. Online

Shopping online is especially prudent for first-time home owners. You can take your time picking out pieces you love without sales people pressuring you or luring you with bright red sale stickers. Homewares like dishware, utensils, tablecloths, bed and bath linens, and kitchen appliances are usually a lot more affordable online—plus, you get way more selection in patterns and colour schemes, so you’ll end up really loving what you buy and did we mention free shipping and delivery? Absolutely key with a young family! You might like to check out IN BED Store online as a starting suggestion.

If you’ve had your eye on a pricey item in your favourite homeware store, don’t fret: it’s only a matter of time before there’s some type of sale, such as a holiday special, a storewide blowout sale, or even a frequent shopper coupon mailed to you. If it’s not a crucial item or you can get by on a second-hand version, do yourself (and your bank account) a favour and wait for the sale. You’ll feel that much more satisfied when you do eventually purchase it, and hey—you might even find something you like better in the meantime.

4. Décor

Probably the most important advice you can get as a first-time home owner is to spend time and money to make sure the house really feels like yours. If you’ve been living in rented places, it will feel amazing to finally put up some pictures, paint the walls, and make things feel a little more permanent for once; do a little research on décor schemes you love, peruse showrooms in department stores, and spend time on each room to make it feel like your own. When shopping for housewares, make sure you get throw pillows, candles, vases, frames, and other pieces that might feel frivolous, but really help make a house feel like a home.
