Finding the right home is hard. And it is not just the house that must be bought. It will need to be furnished as well. One easy way to avoid having to travel around the city looking for a place is to buy a display home in Perth. These manufactured homes are designed with all the modern features and amenities one could want. These include everything from large kitchens to alfresco patios and master bedrooms to spacious living rooms.

In order for a display home to look as good on the inside as it does on the outside, the right furniture must be put in place. This is no easy feat, however, without some understanding of design. Follow these tips to pick the right furniture for your new home.

Colours matter

Unless a homeowner wishes to hire a professional interior designer who knows the ins and outs of home design, it is good to know some basics. One common mistake homeowners make when picking out furniture for a new home is not matching colours. They are so focused on what’s comfortable or what looks good at the store that they don’t realise this furniture might not translate well into their home.

When furnishing a room, it’s vital to select items that not only match with each other, but also with the colours of the walls and baseboards of the home. For instance, light grey coloured walls give a room a very sleek and modern look that will clash with a brown leather sofa. However, a black or white couch will contrast nicely with the walls and give the room a smartly designed look.

Pick a style

Homeowners have eclectic tastes and might like all types of different styles. And while this isn’t an issue per se, trying to bring all these styles into a home can be a bit jarring. A vintage table, a fabric couch and a leather ottoman might seem nice on an individual basis. But put them all together and a room looks confused and unappealing.

While the mix and match style is great for opening a second-hand shop, it’s probably not the look most homeowners want for their new house. When selecting furnishings for a home, pick one style and stick to it. This will help create a uniform look that is sure to impress.

Don’t over-furnish

People fail to realise that the nicest looking homes are the ones that have large open spaces. By placing too much furniture in a room, it will look cluttered. Instead, focus on quality over quantity since it is always easier to add more if something is missing. By buying too many pieces of furniture, a person will be obligated to cram them all into a room regardless of how it looks.

Display Homes by Aveling Homes provide spacious floor plans that can accommodate any style of furniture. And since the floor plan and sizes are predetermined, it’s easy to pick out what will look good in each room.
