Moving Tips: Avoid decorating with tacky items

Instead of tackier items, it may be a good idea to adorn the home with plants.

When you arrive at your new residence and your moving company delivers your belongings, you may want to consider decorating your home as part of the unpacking process. While every homeowner will do this, it is important that you go about it the right way. There are some things that just aren't a good idea to keep around as decorations.

While it is great to have family photos around your home, you want to make sure they are tasteful. Awkward photos can cheapen what you are trying to do, and don't look right presented for guests. Instead, having photos that are classy and show the best qualities of your family could be better choices.

Even though many do like them, signs that exclaim "Welcome to Our Home" or similar slogans can look tacky. When people come to visit, it is likely that they were already invited, and many of these signs and slogans are reproduced constantly. You want to make your home one that is unique to your family, not one that could be like every other home on your street.

A lack of originality doesn't stop at welcome signs. Some people may like inexpensive reproductions of famous paintings, but this also isn't really right for the home. This can look bad in the home. If you do enjoy paintings, it may be a good idea to go to a local art gallery that sells originals. Not all of these are particularly expensive, and there could be multiple options that fit your home and personality.

Plants are always good bets when adding decorations to your home, but it is important to not overdo it. Too many plants will look cluttered, and could be too much to take care of.
