If you now need to share your home with a person who is at the opposite side of the style spectrum, then you need just a bit of creativity. Begin by evaluating what you already have. In merging homes, there are a few items that need to be culled. Instead of two sofas, of course, you only need one. The right time to discuss furniture needs, storage as well as organization is right before you move in! Focus on your needs and not on your wants.
