How To Furnish Your First Home On A Tight Budget

cheap furniture in a first home

You’ve just bought your first home, or you’re planning to purchase in the near future. You’re likely on a tight budget, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit on milk crates or sleep on a mattress on the floor. It just means you have to get creative about where to shop for your fashionable finds. Here are seven great places to find fab furniture on the cheap, leaving some money in the bank for those mortgage payments.

FIRST HOME HELP: Once you have all the functional “core” essentials, infuse some personality and pops of colour into your first home through artwork and accessories. Be creative and choose pieces that help tell your story and reflect your unique character.

It can be easy to get caught up in all the excitement of buying your first home, but remember to keep “things” in perspective – literally. Furniture doesn’t have to be brand new or brand name to do the job. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and your first home doesn’t have to be fully furnished right off the bat, either. Take your time, be selective and surround yourself with things you really love. You’re sure to make your place a feel like “home” in no time.
