I asked Adi to share some types for first-time owners who need to furnish their homes with a limited budget.

5 tips for how to Furnish Your Home for the First Time (Without Breaking the Bank)

  1. FB Marketplace is your FRIEND!
  2. UPCYCLE hand me downs or thrift items like couches, tables, cupboards, mirrors, even seating areas!! It’s fun, creative, and always affordable.
  3. Use soft furnishings like rugs, scatter cushions & throws to conceal stain patches or burns whilst saving to get it fixed/reupholstered/ or bought new.
  4. Don’t be afraid of using color. Even in the few items you have. It’s a more creatively affordable option to jazzing up a room.
  5. Invest in items with multipurpose (Bed + storage) or Sleeper couch (save on needing an extra room for short stay visitors).
