4 Key Things to Consider When Planning Your Interior Design Vision
Whether you’ve just decided to start looking for a new home or you’ve just received the keys, planning, and bringing to life your interior vision, especially when it is your first home, is a really exciting prospect. No matter how exciting it is, it can also be hard to know where to get started. Here are some top tips on how to plan your interior design with your own stamp on things:
We have all been guilty of going for trend-driven pieces now and then. But when decorating your first home, it is wise to go for timeless pieces. Timeless doesn’t need to mean boring by any means. This can still include bold choices, but they should all be considered.
Think about how different pieces of furniture will work together and how well they are likely to age and suit different homes that you may live in in the future.
If you’ve bought or are buying a new build home, then chances are you will be starting with a pretty neutral slate to begin with, which is perfect for adding your touch. If you have bought an older property, look past how it is currently decorated and focus on what you want to achieve and how you want your home to look and feel.
Be Price Conscious
Often our dream interior can feel out of reach, especially as a first-time buyer. It is easy to see pricey renovation transformations and expensive furniture online and feel that you won’t be able to achieve the same vibe with your budget. This is where being thrifty is going to become really useful.
Actively searching on second-hand sites is a great way to find bargains on things to deck out your home. If you can’t find the exact item you want, make sure to bookmark it and keep a close eye on if it goes on sale.
Fortunately, visualizing how you’d like your home to look is now easier than ever with technology. From testing out the formation of a gallery wall to fully designing room mock-ups, utilizing technology will allow you to experiment with different layouts and color schemes without having to commit time or money until you are sure of your choices.
Take Things One Room at a Time
When you get the keys to your new home, it can be very tempting to try and rush through the decorating process to get everything done as quickly as possible. The problem with doing this is that you are more likely to make the same mistake multiple times which may lead you to have a mismatch of designs throughout the house.
Decorating one room at a time will allow you to pick up new techniques, learn what works well, and create a cohesive design throughout the whole home. Doing this will also mean you can spread both cost and effort over time, so you are less likely to burn out midway through the project.
We hope these tips help you plan your interior design vision so you can bring it to life!
