How to start furnishing your dream home with Wren furniture



The prospect of furnishing your dream home is both exciting and daunting, depending on the resources at your disposal. No matter what your budget is, it is possible to put together a beautiful living space with a few simple guidelines and considerations. Read on for advice on how to start furnishing your dream home.


The first step to furnishing your dream home is to assess your budget. You’ll want to establish a reasonable expectation of what you can purchase with your allocated budget, so you’re not left feeling disappointed or surprised by prices. A great way to help you visualize and create a layout for your home is by drawing out a floor plan.

When creating your floor plan, decide on a general style and stick to it. Whether your preference is modern or classic, country or mid-century, your interior design style should flow throughout your entire home. Once you’ve got a theme in mind, it’s time to start furnishing. The focal point of a room should be your biggest purchase and typically your sofa, for example, in the living room. Once the focal point has been established, then it’s easier to buy smaller items that are complementary in style.

Make sure you purchase furniture and decorations that can grow with you and your changing style over time. Purchase timeless items such as furniture made from natural materials that you can use over and over, like leather, or wool sofas, rattan and wood armchairs. These materials look good, no matter the style. Invest in pieces that you truly love, rather than those you think will ‘just do’.


It is a good idea to measure everything before you make any purchases, and be sure to read online reviews, look out for guarantees, and find out what is available to you as part of a potential package deal. Quality is of paramount importance, but that does not always mean you need to buy the most expensive.


Now is the time to personalize the space and add decorative pieces such as lighting, throws and pillows. Pillows are a great way to express yourself through colour and patterns, as well as adding a pop of interest. Finally, hang artwork or put prints and posters in places that will be pleasing to look at, and have them complement the overall style.


In summary, furniture your dream home does not need to be an intimidating or expensive endeavor. Take it step by step, with careful planning and measurements and some creativity you can easily turn your house into your own, dream home.
