When it comes to Houston home decorating, deciding where to start can sometimes feel overwhelming. Should you start with furniture shopping or painting? Should you hire a pro or do it yourself? How much should you spend? And, perhaps most importantly, what are you really trying to achieve with your project?
You will probably be looking – literally – at the decisions you make today for many years to come, so you want to make sure they are ones you can live with. To get the best results, start with a few pre-project tasks. These will give you perspective and guide your efforts in a good direction.
Consider your current surroundings. What do you like? What would you like to change? Think about what appeals to you most regarding colors, fabrics, and styles. Avoid choosing things just because they are familiar or match your current décor. Determine what you truly like and let that guide your redecorating plans.
Make a wish list. If money was no object, what would you do with your space? Write everything down. This will give you a starting point. From this list, you can prioritize and decide what projects you can and will do based on room size and budget size.
Speaking of budgets, that is one of the great advantages of hiring a Houston home decorator to help with your redecoration plans. They have the skills to look at high-ticket items and, if they are out of your real life budget figure out a way to achieve a similar look for less.
Look at pictures. See what others have done with similar spaces to those you want to tackle in your home. Get ideas on how you can accomplish the look and feel that you want for your home. Find inspiration online and in magazines that can help you nail down the details for your redecorated surroundings. This research will get your creative juices flowing.
