Moving into your first home is both an exciting and worrisome experience. Finally — you get to create your very own space and call it your home. But at the same time, dealing with renovations, thinking of decor ideas and finding ways to spruce up your space… is a lot of work.
From choosing the right colour palettes, to putting up the right decor, styling a home is really not as easy as it seems. And that’s what this article is going to be about. Here, we’ll share some of the best styling tips every new homeowner can consider to bring your space to life!
Choose the right focus
You don’t need to style every corner and area in your home. In fact, putting up decor at every turn can be quite visually overwhelming. Choosing an area to focus in styling your home can cut the hassle and create a more comfortable living space!
Here are 3 key areas you can consider channelling your styling efforts on:
- The entryway
- Large empty walls
- Coffee tables and flat surfaces

The entryway is the first thing guests see in your home, that’s why it’s such a great spot to style. You can style the entryway by putting up some black and white picture frames and arrange them to create a mini gallery. It gives guests a little sneak peak of your life and also creates conversations. Since entryways tend to be a small area, you don’t have to feel too pressured to fill up a large wall with photo frames or pictures. Keep the wall clean to prevent over-decorating!
Large empty walls
Large walls always present a great opportunity to style and give your space character. These walls tend to be in your living room or dining area and can often be a focal point of your space. If you focus on creating some visual interest on these walls, your room immediately comes to life!

Try fluted panels
Styling a large wall might seem intimidating but it doesn’t have to be complicated! As specialists in fluted panels, we know the magic that these amazing panels can bring to any room. That’s why we highly recommend covering large walls with our wooden fluted panels which come in a range of designs.
Our fluted panels are made of wood plastic composite which are sturdy and give any room a natural touch. Fluted panels are great statement pieces and they look even better when paired with yellow hue ceiling lights, which create a cosy and intimate atmosphere.
The concave series is one of our favourites because it uses simple lines and curves to create a calming atmosphere in any living space. Fluted panels that have wider curvatures tend to create more fluidity and give your home a zen-like feel. If you’re a big fan of minimalist styling, you’ll definitely love the concave series.
For a more sophisticated look, we recommend fluted panels that have slim and subtle lines, and perhaps in a darker mahogany shade. That’s the great thing about fluted panels — they’re sleek, simple, and yet they create very different moods depending on your tastes!
Coffee tables and flat surfaces

We often overlook tables in our homes when it comes to styling because we don’t want to over clutter table tops. But here’s the thing — you can still style these surfaces and maintain the functionality of your tables!
For coffee tables, you can place a few lifestyle magazines and cascade them to give off an effortless vibe. Magazines from Kinfolk and Cereal tend to be very design oriented and can give any plain coffee table the pop of colour it needs!
Another great way to style table tops and flat surfaces is to place vases or ceramic pieces. They can act as an understated centrepiece and don't take up too much space so you can still use your coffee tables and side tables to serve guests drinks or light bites!
Styling your home doesn’t need to be complicated. You just need to know a few tips and tricks, and focus on an area — especially areas that are easily noticeable by guests. Large walls present an amazing opportunity to help you set the mood of the room, without having to put up too much decor or ornaments! For more subtle pops of colours, try placing magazines or simple centrepieces on side tables and coffee tables.
