Can You Enjoy Design And DIY In A New Build House?

After years of lovingly decorating and styling your current home, you may now be ready to take the plunge and buy a new house. Buying a brand new home is a wonderful experience.

Everything is so clean and fresh and ready just to move in. But there is a problem. If you're a DIY and decorating fan, what on earth are you going to do in a brand new property you have custom ordered?

Don’t panic. Boredom will not set in because there is still plenty you can do to a new home. Starting outside, you will find the garden is like a blank canvas. It's waiting for your landscaping talents to create a wonderful space. You can create structure and height in your garden with planting and shrubbery. You will also need to find some garden furniture to help turn this empty space into a wonderful entertaining area. Perhaps you will install a large patio or some decking. If you are a keen gardener, you may even buy a greenhouse and garden shed.

Few new houses come with a pool installed already. If you want one, you can have a go at building it yourself. The trouble is, many new houses have a lot of builder’s rubble underneath the garden! You may be best to plan and design the pool but leave the heavy grounds works to the professionals. Conservatories are often a nice addition to a house too, or some other garden room to provide a quiet space.

Inside, much of the decor will be immaculate but very bland. You will want to make some stark changes quite soon after buying so you can add some personality to the house. Bold colors are ideal for maximizing the impact of a fresh, new house. Color coordinate or install some contrast to bring life and energy into the decor. Your furniture choices will also go a long way to personalizing the new house. The styles you choose will certainly put your stamp on any room. Perhaps you like the style of the show house in the brochures? Copying one or two ideas is a great way to get things going with your own esthetic preferences.

When you buy a brand new house from someone like Riverstone, you can expect the very highest quality in fixtures and fittings. You can often choose your own color palette for the kitchen areas. Worktops and cupboards can easily be customized to suit you. Take your time to consider your order when you are buying a new house. Take advantage of any opportunities to put your own stamp on this beautiful new home.

Buying a new home is exciting but you can worry there won’t be much to do once you have moved in. On the contrary, a new home can be very much like a blank canvas waiting for your personal touches to give it character. Just because the paint is fresh on the walls doesn’t mean you can’t change it straight away for a bolder color or wallpaper. Make your new house into a beautiful home your way.
