A couple should never more into one another’s place. They should definitely have their own spot, especially if getting married. It’s just better to come together in a place to insure that no one has the upper hand on anyone else. Then comes the fact that you have to then make the house a home for the both of you. Which this can be hard if styles don’t exactly match up, so here are some tips to take yours and theirs and make it coincide in an actual home.
9. Go with the Best Furniture
If one of you already has great pieces, go with them. If not, go shopping and compromise; one picks the style and the other picks the color.
8. Frame Both Families
You each get a picture of your parents and siblings in the house, no doubt about that.
7. Be Open to Change
If you or they don’t like something, talk it over and if it comes down to it – get rid of it, it’s not a big problem.
6. It’s Not a Dorm
Unless you absolutely love your alma mater and posters that much, try and adult the place a bit; hints of school spirit and framed prints.
5. Give Up Closet Space
Share the space, enough said.
4. Think of Food as “Ours”
You’re not roommates, they can have some of “your” cereal.
3. Get a Joint Bank Account
So household expenses aren’t on one person.
Hit Target Together
Shop for household items together so you’re both in on it.
Place accents of both of your hobbies in the decor.
