1. Fix Any Issues in Your Home
Before redesigning your home, you’ll want to complete repair jobs. Hire local contractors who can help you with these projects.
If the exterior of your home needs some work, start there. Clean up your yard, freshen up your flowerbeds, and pressure wash your home. Work with reputable roofing contractors if your roof needs a repair.
Once you complete home repairs, get excited to begin the redesign.
2. Declutter and Rearrange Your Home
When you’re redesigning your home, you don’t always need to go and buy new pieces.
Try rearranging your furniture first. Create a new flow to a room. You could also add new slipcovers to the furniture.
Next, you should try and declutter your home. Get rid of duplicate items or unnecessary pieces.
3. What Is Your Style?
Before you renovate or change anything in your home, consider your style. Do you like comfortable items or tailored pieces? What’s your favorite pattern and colors?
You could create an elegant, formal, or modern atmosphere in your home. Some people seek an inviting or playful vibe.
Start to gather design inspiration when you’re out at a restaurant or someone else’s home. See what you prefer and what you would like to add to your home.
Read home and design magazines and search on Pinterest for ideas.
4. Decide What You Dislike
Next, you’ll want to narrow down your choices by figuring out what you don’t like.
If you don’t want bold or bright colors, eliminate that from your list. If specific colors evoke bad feelings, avoid them. Make sure you take time thinking about your dislikes.
This way, when you begin redesigning your space, you’ll know what suits your style.
5. Work With Your Existing Space
Before you redesign a room, you’ll want to consider the space you have to work with before buying anything. People end up buying furniture that’s too massive for their current home.
If you have a larger room, try creating different zones for various activities.
You could have one area for viewing television and another area for work. Add a desk to that spot so you can study or play games with friends.
6. Try Paint Samples
Paint selection is an important decision to make when considering a redesign.
You’ll want to pick the right color scheme to connect spaces. Don’t think about a random room. Instead, think about your house as a whole. This way, you won’t have a bunch of disjointed rooms.
Think about how color will affect you and your family’s mood. Some colors make people feel agitated, while others make them feel calm. Ask your family to give feedback about different color schemes.
Next, you’ll want to sample colors on your walls. See what the paint samples look like in natural light, in the evening, and morning light. One color that works well in one room might not work for another.
If you’re looking to paint your walls white, check the undertones. Some will have touches of blues, pinks, and yellows. The sky and outside landscape can cause reflections of blues and greens on your walls.
7. Shop Around for Different Pieces
When you’re redesigning a room, shop at thrift stores, furniture stores, and antique shops. You’ll find some unique pieces that can elevate a room.
Mix low and high price points.
8. Begin From the Floor up
When you redesign a room, you’ll want to start from the ground. Decide on a floor covering. If you have carpet, would you consider ripping it up and replacing it with laminate or hardwood floor?
Your floor will help dictate how other pieces get layered in your room. If you choose a natural fiber rug or a neutral tone, you’ll have lots of options for upholstery and colors.
Have you found a gorgeous antique rug? Try using the colors in the rug to create a color palette.
Plan these things at the same time, so you have the space functioning as a whole.
9. Watch Out for Trends
On Pinterest, Instagram, and design magazines, you’ll learn more about new trends. Most people fall in love with at least one of the recent trends. Trends are hot at the moment, but they don’t tend to last long.
Make sure you’re investing in timeless pieces that you won’t get bored of fast.
10. Have Fun Shopping for Accessories
Accessories are fun to add to a room, and they don’t tend to be super expensive. The right accessory will add a finishing touch to a room and make it feel complete.
Look for unique pillows, vases, and artwork to tie everything together in your home. Accessories will also make a room feel elegant, cozy, or fun.
You can add a bit of texture with accessories, as well. Shop for a chunky knit blanket or furry throw pillows. Mix different textures in a room.
