We all want to live in a beautiful home but for some reason or the other it never works out the way we plan. Either there's not enough money, time or resources to get the house we want.
Sometimes we think big about things than they actually are so things tend to be put off for later. If this is exactly how you feel when thinking of decorating or re-decorating your house, read on…
There are simple Interior Design Basics we can learn and put into practice to decide how much of the house we can and will be able to decorate.
Ask yourself, what sort of a change do I want? Is it practical to maintain the change? For example, if you want to buy expensive antiques to bring in class to your living room but you know you're kids will spoil them then this is something that is not practical at the time.
Remember, a beautiful home is not necessarily a one that has expensive furnishing. It should be a one that suits the lifestyle of its occupants while maintaining a beautiful atmosphere.
Once you know what sort of change is wanted and feasible, write down a list of things that you need to make this change happen. Even if these are things that you already have in your home, note it down so that you have thought the whole change process through. This will help you cross out what you already own and would like to keep and what you need to buy. Also, this is a good way to decide what furniture you would like to use differently or want to get rid of completely.
Then it's time to budget. How much money is needed for the change? If you're planning on selling some of the furniture you decide you don't need, find out how much you can get for them. This way, before you're halfway through a change, you know how much you will have to spend on the new look you're trying to create.
Great! Now that we're done with the budgeting, you can do a draft of the change you envision. If you're thinking of painting the walls, attach the color in your draft sketch of the room/s so that you can get a clear idea of the final picture.
Once everything is thought through, it's time to write down what you're going to do and when, so that from this point on it is only a matter of executing the plan.
