Tips On Furnishing Your New Property Without Going Broke In Miri

Posted by tasan@developer on September 1, 2021

You archieved your huge life milestone and bought your first and new property in Miri. You think that it is a reflection of you. So you plan to furnish it according to your style. Then, it hits you and tries hard to figure out how to furnish it on a tight budget. So make sure to continue reading this blog, and Tasan will show you how to furnish your new property in Miri without breaking the bank. 


Look Around You

It’s always a good thing to first research and find inspirations from your social media for your perfect property. But of course, you wouldn’t need too if you have tons of cash to achieve the look or design which you like and to revamp it once you think it doesn’t fit to your lifestyle. Well if you don’t, you should probably take inventory of everything you already own. Make a list and cross everything which is stained, damaged or things which you no longer favour. When you have that list, you can sketch out your new property according to what you still have and let go of those when you no longer have enough space for them. 


Hit Up Relative 

When you feel like there is something lacking but you are not sure what is lacking from the list you made, you could go further to seek your relative for more opinion or they might even go to the extent of giving some donations. Maybe you could make use of the old retro coffee table which your mom has been wanting to replace or that sofa bed which your relatives dislike due to its colour but it fits your theme. One thing to make sure is that the furniture is still good or at least in a usable state.


Purchase Necessities First

Most of the new homeowners tend to set unrealistic expectations of having property entirely furnished by move-in day – which is a big mistake that could easily blow an entire budget getting one room perfect with no way to rest financially. Instead, you should concentrate on the necessities such as the kitchen if you are someone who loves to cook, or your bedroom when you value your sleep quality very much compared to others. Or you could also focus on getting bigger furniture first such as the sofa, mattress, window treatment especially for new property in Miri due to the super hot weather. Doing so can help you to make your home liveable while you can still fill up the space according to your living style in the future.


Second Hand Is Your Best Buddy

As the saying goes “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” but this is rather subjective when it comes to neon beer signs and cinder block bookshelves. The current high and low decorating trend is all about finding items with character that can’t be bought at big box furniture stores. You could go to yard sales, flea markets and online auctions for some of the good bargains and inspirations. Besides, isn’t this a good thing to do rather than buying new products and producing new waste to fill the landmills?


Paint Is Just As Nice As Wallpaper

Wallpaper has been very well designed and it is beautiful, but it is very pricey especially when it only needs a small piece to patch up your furniture or just one wall compared with just painting them. You could just head to YouTube for some DIY tutorials on turning eyesores into conversation pieces. Painting walls can also be easier when refreshing a new wall or experimenting with the colours which you like best. 


Suck It Up

While buying a pre-owned item for your house will help you save tons of money, there are a few new purchases which you still need to splurge on a bit. Ever saw a bed frame on a garage sale? Not so much right? Maybe you could still find one or two but what about mattresses? In my opinion, you should take care of furniture which has direct contact with your skin or body as keeping your body healthy is your biggest asset. Never skimp on quality linens and bath towels for you and future guests. Finally, nothing beats a new set of kitchen knives; splurge on those, and you’ll have them your entire life.


Indoor Plants Can Create A Mood

Not only can plants help you to regulate your air quality, it can immediately bring the outside in and is an inexpensive way to fill awkward empty spaces. They are living things, though, so look for easy care varieties that will be happy with however much natural light will be available. But of course, if you don’t have a green thumb, you can always opt for fake plants which look just like real ones such as Christmas cactuses and Boston ferns purchased for next-to-nothing at a big box hardware store can thrive for decades.


The process of furnishing your new property can be overwhelming. However, you can keep these tips in mind and do some research before start your furnishing process . With these tips, you’ll be able to furnish your new property in Miri without going broke.
