You’ve finally done it! You pounded the payment, met your budget, and signed the papers on your very first of the best Midtown East apartments in all of NYC. Now, you are ready to go hog wild and decorate said apartment to your heart’s content. That’s amazing, but before you head out to the stores or do a little online shopping, read on below for a few of the mistakes you need to avoid when decorating your new apartment.
Mistake Number One: You Don’t Stick to a Budget
You created a budget for your apartment and stuck to it pretty well. Then you turned around and blew that entire budget on decorating your apartment. If you don’t have a big budget try shopping at discount stores and discount places online. If all else fails, decorate a little at a time. However, don’t blow your entire budget for the month on decorating and end up eating Ramen noodles for three weeks.
Mistake Number Two: You Buy Your Furniture Before You Move In
While it may be tempting to buy your furniture as soon as you sign the papers on your Midtown East apartments, it’s best to wait until you move in. You need to be able to take a step back and visualize what type of furniture you need and where you want to place it. You don’t want to have an apartment full of furniture delivered and find out it doesn’t fit or fit your style when you have it arranged. Make time to think about what you want for your apartment before you buy the furniture to fill it.
These are just a couple of the mistakes that you don’t want to make when decorating your first apartment. For more information on getting that apartment, contact the professionals at 200E62 today.
