If you want to be your own interior designer then there are certain things that should be looked into. Don’t just go crazy and make plans that you will regret later. It is better to know these ground rules and then start designing your house.
Here’s What you should be knowing:
Ask yourself some important questions.
First of all, ask yourself about requirements, likes, dislikes and constraints. Know what you want and reimagine your house. Make a list of what you have, what’s needed and allocate a budget. Once you are thorough with everything, start making plans and come up with ideas.
Feel the space and collect ideas.
Get a good sense of the space and collect ideas from various sources before selecting the appropriate one. Don’t get diverted from your ideas and budget. Always have a bigger picture in mind and be ruthless while eliminating unnecessary things.
Start big and take risks.
Get major things done initially as they will take more time and cost more, like painting walls and putting up furnishings. Once you are done with them, you can freely concentrate on the smaller details. If you are open for experimenting, then take risks and incorporate new ideas and stuff into the mix.
Mix designs and styles.
You don’t have to have the same design and materials all over just because they are pretty and you like them. Keep it exclusive and mix up various designs and styles which will surely make the place look more colourful and happening.
Pay attention to details.
The smaller details can have a big impact. Don’t ignore the minute details. Make sure you buy the smaller items at the last after evaluating what you need.
