When the housing market crashed, some people found themselves facing foreclosure. But rather than move and go into another costly housing situation, others decided to renovate their foreclosed homes. Fortunately, some furniture manufacturers caught on to the trend and started producing lines of foreclosure furniture—furniture that consumers might normally purchase for their homes. Now, foreclosure decor can be used to make your house a home again.
Here’s The Children’s Way of Foreclosure Furniture Decorating:
- Avoid Furnishing Along the Walls.
For the economy, furniture and household furnishings are necessities. For homeowners, furnishing a home can be costly due to a rapidly rising mortgage or just the cost of furnishing it. If you feel you can’t afford to furnish your home, but you still want to, then it may be time to consider selling your unwanted items online. If you’re in the process of buying a home that’s in foreclosure, you may find yourself with a vacant space to decorate. Or perhaps you’re looking to spruce things up at your current home. Either way, decorating a foreclosure home can be a challenge—it’s often smaller and may have lighter walls. When you decorate, though, think about your furnishings. Choose furnishings that will complement the walls, not compete with them—they’ll create a more cohesive look. Furniture and accessories that decorate the walls (like bookcases, entertainment centers, and bookshelves) should be smaller than the furnishings that decorate the floor. By placing your furniture away from the walls, you create a feeling of spaciousness, and your guests will be more likely to feel relaxed and comfortable.
- Set Up Play Surface on The Floor.
A child’s bedroom is their private space in the world. From their coloring and toy rooms to the computer area, and from couches and chairs to the bed, the child’s area should be a reflection of their personality. But sometimes, when a parent is underwater with bills and can’t get the home sold, the children’s area suffers. That is until foreclosure furniture decor comes into the picture.
- Put On Children’s Rugs.
Just had to move? Need to decorate your home? Step into the Children’s Way. These lovable little rugs are made from felt and reflect the colors and designs of popular children’s furniture. They add a lot of fun to any room. From the popular Gumball Rug to the handmade and one-of-a-kind Beach Hut and Butterfly Rugs, the Children’s Way collection has a variety of rugs to suit everyone’s style.
- Remember The Cozy Corner.
When most people think of decorating their foreclosed home, they picture themselves spending as much money as possible on expensive furniture pieces and fine fabrics. Some even paint the walls with bright and bold colors. However, many kids tend to prefer a more low-key home style, which can include elbow grease and thriftiness. Some of the best foreclosures for kids to decorate are those that feature cozy corners for their toys.
- Ergonomics And Children’s Furniture.
Children’s furniture is specially made to fit the smaller stature and shorter reach of children. They usually come in bright colors and cartoon characters that are attractive to children. But there is also a variety of age-appropriate and kid-proof furniture that even adults can use. Furniture decorating for a children’s room can be a challenge. After all, they’d much rather play on the floor than stand on a piece of furniture. But there’s one important piece of furniture that children need: a table and chairs. Explore ways to decorate a table and chairs, whether made of wood, metal, or plastic.
Kids are messy. We know. When you wake up in the morning, you don’t see toys, clothes, and books on the floor, do you? But you see them there when you wake up. And guess what? Your kids do, too. But, while kids’ rooms might be packed with toys and art supplies, they don’t have to be playrooms. If you’re able to remodel your kids’ bedroom, they can finally have their own space for all their toys. And, it doesn’t have to be boring or plain. With a few inexpensive decor ideas, you can transform your child’s bedroom into a colorful, happy space for them to play and unwind.
