Whether you’re moving in and starting with an empty room or want to freshen up your existing home decor, taking on a new decorating project can be daunting. There are more interior design styles, home decor companies, and decorating ideas than ever before, which can be both a benefit and a challenge. Decor Aid interior designers are professionals at starting projects on the right foot. So keep her tips in mind as you prepare to get started with your room decorating.
Tip: Determine the scope of the project
It is important to figure out which rooms you are decorating to keep your interior design focused. Are you doing a complete interior design or just one or two rooms? Take into account your timeframe, whether renovations are needed and what your budget will allow.
Tip: This is how you can find decoration ideas
Make the decorating process easier for yourself by searching for inspiration and finding out what you like in terms of design. Search Pinterest, design blogs, Instagram and decorating magazines to find decorating ideas. Look for different elements that you might want to include, and don’t worry about just looking at comparative rooms: even a picture of the foyer of a large mansion can contain room ideas that can be translated into a small bedroom in a city apartment.
Cut out images or save them to a Pinterest board to record what you find and like. If you choose to work with an interior designer, having a collection of images that represent your style will make the job easier.
Tip: set a budget
Once you’re thoroughly inspired, it’s time to take an analytical approach to your project and set a budget. Find out what to invest and consider your space design priorities. Perhaps your existing sofa could be freshened up with a blanket, but storage or a new wall treatment is a necessity. Make sure your budget is realistic and reflects not only what you can spend, but what you want to spend too.
Not sure how much to budget? An interior designer is very knowledgeable about the costs of decorating, from furnishings to crafting to unexpected costs that may arise, and can consider your needs to help create a budget and decorating plan.
Tip: choose a designer
Take the pressure off your interior design project by hiring an interior designer. A knowledgeable designer can help you make your interior design affordable, keep the project on track, and source quality furniture and home accessories that suit your lifestyle and tastes. It’s easier than ever to find and hire an interior designer. That way, you can save money and avoid costly mistakes.
