Moving into a new apartment with your spouse is a super special moment in life. It is the new chapter that you are starting with the love of your life. That means that you are starting with a new place that you will call home. While decorating your first home together, you will learn many important things like how important it is to compromise. Because, if you don’t compromise with your spouse, little disagreements will turn into big arguments, which is not an excellent way to start your marriage.
Decide What Both Of You Like
The first and most important step in decorating your first apartment is deciding what both of you want and like and how you will combine two styles. Talk about what your favorite colors and design styles are and see how you can combine them. Don’t be stubborn and close-minded when your spouse is suggesting ideas. Even though in those situations, it might be tempting to take over the whole project and do it yourself, but that is not the best idea. As it is both you and your spouse’s home, you must discuss it together, and both of you need to be happy with the decision before you proceed to do it.
Get Creative With Your Kitchen Tables
You don’t have to have a separate room just to have a dining table; there are so many fun concepts that you can go for when decorating your dining room. You can create a cafe style dining room with a simple window cafe table. If that doesn’t go with your style, you can choose a smaller dining table that will give off a homey vibe. And if that option is to plan for your taste, you can spice it up by adding a fun twist with some metal fabrication designs.
Choose Multipurpose Furniture
No matter how big or small your home is, having furniture that is multipurpose is always a good thing to have. Getting multipurpose furniture is always a smart choice that will help you compromise with your spouse. There are so many options that will adapt to fit both of your needs, and that can transform in many useful ways. It will save you space, money, and time spent by looking for a way to compromise.
Pick A Bed And Mattress That Both of You Like
As newlyweds, the bedroom is the most important room, because the importance of sleeping together is not supposed to be ignored. It is a place where you will escape the stress of work and life. And we all need a bed in our home, but when you are a newlywed you can only pick what you like and feel comfortable on, you need to please your spouse two. Without a good night’s rest, your marriage won’t be the same. If you or your spouse find the mattress uncomfortable, it can leave you with not only being grumpy, but it can affect your physical health. Therefore, pick the right bed frame that will suit both of your styles and choose a mattress that both of you feel comfortable sleeping on. If you can’t find one that is good for both of you, you can get two different ones and put them in a one-bed frame.
Pick The Comfiest Couch
Most people are not aware that a comfy couch is a vital piece of furniture. Because that is where you will spend time winding down, cuddling, and watching funny things on your TV. There is no better way to celebrate your new chapter, then getting a new comfortable couch. But just like picking anything else, you need to consider your partners’ opinions and likings when choosing the right couch.
Add Personal Touches
As with decorating any place, adding personal touches and memories of your relationship will make your home feel warm and homey. Put up little memorabilia all over the house, the pictures of your wedding day on the fireplace, or on your walls as decoration. No decor can beat the look of sentimental ornaments in a house.
Even when you are decorating your first apartment together as newlyweds, you have to focus on your relationship while doing that.
