TIPS FOR REMODELLING
It is every homeowner’s dream to have a beautiful looking and well maintained space. Sometimes, one might want to switch things up a little by redecorating or remodeling. If this is you, and you have no idea where to start or what to do, here are a few tricks that will be of help.
- Know your style- You probably already thought of this the first time round, so it is now time to go back to this basic question. Figure out how you want the place to feel, the colors, materials and textures to use, and also where to draw your inspiration from.
- DIY- This is especially helpful if you are trying to save up on money during the remodel. There are lots of pieces that you can make or fix for yourself, and the good thing is that it will be a fun project to take on and will help your creative juices flow.
- Plan for the future- Sometimes we want to remodel so that we can sell the house. If this is your reason, then do not go for overly expensive fixtures. Instead, get timeless pieces that are affordable and won’t make you go at a loss in the long run.
- Add a little more money to the budget- More often than not, redecorating projects usually end up going for longer than planned for, and sometimes you may find that you need additional supplies. To avoid being surprised by this, add a little more to your expected budget so that there is still some cash left to use just in case.
- Consider the space-Think of balance and how things will be distributed in the room. You do not want to end up with furniture that is too big for the space making it look disproportionate.
- Don’t be afraid to mix- When it comes to décor, bring in together new and old pieces in a way that will make the place look unique after the remodel is done.
- Go for quality- You are already spending a lot to redecorate, so make sure the pieces that you pick are good quality. This is especially so for the things that people come into contact with a lot such as door handles and faucets.
