How to Design your Home Interior


Lately you have noticed the home looks a bit – plain and you have had a few ideas of you own that you wanted to act on for interior design of your home. Designing your home involves going out shopping to look for certain furnishings, paintings, and so many other items for your residence. Usually, the first thing you want to begin with is the color or theme of your home. Once you get this down, you’ll have an idea of what to buy rather then walking in the stores without a clue of what you should get. Here are some steps to follow when preparing for interior design.

1. Gather a list of items you need, based on your home’s theme or color structure. If you have a home which is already painting in beige color, you may want to add lighter hues like a cheery yellow and soft browns. However, if that is a color that won’t fit your theme – you can simply strip it or paint over. In case you are not familiar with painting techniques, feel free to hire a painter to do this for you.

2. Now you need to visit a few stores, or go online to get what you want. It is recommended to pick up smaller items online to save you money and get furnishings in the stores. Shipment can be expensive. Also, if you are looking to save some money and join a fun craft – try transforming used dressers or chairs into works of art. You can pick these up at garage sales.

3. Overall, make sure everything falls into place. If something doesn’t match inĀ  your home, you can move it to the next room. Always have 3 basic colors to add contrast. You can always decorate rooms differently rather than having a solid theme for the home.
