Decorating your home to be comfortable, functional, and beautiful doesn’t need to be complicated. But you will need to properly plan so that you can achieve the best look for your home and accentuate its best features. This is why we typically call these types of home renovations ‘cosmetic’.
Whether you are planning to build a full extension, a new bathroom, or even a kitchen, you need aptly prepare to embark on your interior home design project. And rather than taking on the project by yourself, you should consider hiring professional interior designers who can help guide the process.
Steps to Complete in Interior Design
Websites, social media and magazines are full of amazing ideas to help you create your ideal interior design. There is no end to the creative outcomes you may find to be possible when you expand your horizons with inspiring ideas. Choose designs that are both realistic and exciting so that the end result satisfies you but doesn’t become so novel that you’ll be sick of it after a few months.
Find Your Style
Custom home building is all about choosing each element of your home’s design to create an overall effect that you truly love. While you can select any style guide to go by, you need to know the practicalities of every design so that it will accommodate the needs of your family.
Perhaps your ideas are inspired by a favourite film – keep in mind that it may look great in theory, but will it really be practical and have the same effect in your everyday life? Do your best to bridge any gaps and be realistic by incorporating elements you already know suit your home.
Choose the Right Decor
Before starting your home interior design project; consider the decorative elements you will select to compliment your new interior design. Ensure that your aesthetic elements line up with your furniture and focal elements such as artwork. Variety and contrast will make your interiors look even more aesthetically pleasing but you will be frustrated if you finish your project only to realize your furniture looks horrible with your beautifully upgraded interior features.
Consider your Budget
When you want to interior design your home, there’s no question that you will need to set aside a budget for the project. Add all of the projected expenses that you will incur so that you can allocate the correct amounts for different aspects of the project. Always set aside extra for the unexpected – we recommend saving at least 10% of your overall budget for costs you may not anticipate.
Understand Your Space
Make sure you pay attention to your spacial planning: it’s one thing to have great ideas, it’s another to ensure they actually fit! Before starting with any home building project, you need to determine the amount of space you have. Although simple in theory, when you begin to add the various dimensions of custom features such as cabinetry or new pieces of furniture, you want to be sure that you have a thorough understanding of the different spaces you are working with.
Space planning is directly related to the scale of the project – you need to choose furniture and other interior design elements according to not just what will fit in your space, but also what will contribute to your overall aesthetic. It’s also very important to intentionally balance your space, and if you are renovating a large room, you should establish zones for performing different activities. Using symmetry is a great way to properly balance your space.
Take Time With Your Design
At the end of the day, the most important guidance we can offer is to take the time you need to properly consider, plan, and design your interior project. The details will truly depend on what type of project you are taking on – are you doing a simple bathroom remodelling to update old towel racks and light fixtures, or are you adding a second floor to your house? Where do you draw the line in terms of the materials you want to introduce – will they all be new or are you recycling certain pieces? What do you truly want to get from your interior renovations?
When completing your home’s interior design, the more questions you ask – the better.
