Expert Tips From Builders in GA: Outfitting Your New Home

You fell in love with this property from the moment that you stepped in the door. After considerable negotiation, the home is now yours to enjoy. At Southland Custom Homes, we understand that you want a property that reflects your personality. From exterior accents to fresh paint in the kitchen, there are several items that homebuyers automatically gravitate towards after closing the deal. Explore the top items that brighten up the home as new homeowners alter the property to their liking.

Curtains, Shades and More

Window treatments are more than just decorations on the wall. They provide security for the household as you go about your daily chores. In fact, some homeowners take the window treatments with them when they move out. Consider your family's needs as you look at the various options. Curtains block substantial light, and you can put them in the washing machine. Blinds, shades and other options need more elbow grease for their upkeep.


The home might be neatly presented during open houses, but removed rugs and open windows may reveal worn carpeting. Before you move all of your items into the home, consider a complete installation of wall-to-wall carpeting. This time frame is perfect for a carpet replacement because the home is entirely empty.

Updated Furniture

Your old furniture fit in perfectly with your previous residence, but it doesn't look as attractive in the new home. Don't hesitate to update the furniture. You might need a larger or smaller couch based on the living room's size. Part of the old furniture may have faded marks too.

Major Appliances

Laundry systems, dishwashers and ceiling fans may be declining in quality or are broken altogether. The new home may not have these items installed at all. Save some money from the home purchase in order to buy these essentials. By maintaining them over the years, these appliances can last for a decade or longer.
