Every house has that one room that you just never feel is right. You make some minor tweaks here and there, but ultimately, it just does not fit with the fung shui of your house. It is easy to just close the door to that room or this can be the time to decide to tackle it as a mini project. You wish it could be as easy as it seems on T.V. to transform rooms into an owner’s dream, but you can build up your own sense of accomplishment will redesigning a room all on your own.
Be a Copycat
Sometimes the best inspiration is to see a room on TV, another person’s house, or maybe even in a store. There is nothing wrong with finding an appealing room and taking some of the components of it to add to yours. Design inspiration can be found anywhere. Do your homework and research what others have done. Go to a home interior shop room, visit friends and family, or view property websites. Develop that image in your mind of what can really make that room stand out in your house.
Figure out a Budget
This may be easier said than done. The budgets that you see on television that the designers are allowed to work with can make your jaw drop. Think about what you could do with that kind of money. In reality, most people must scrap money together to get the room of their dreams. There are many deals, bargains, and sales out there that you can piece together something that works best for you. Look for places that have quality, but cheap rugs, or find linoleum that resembles a wood floor. Be on the lookout for yard sales or flea markets that you might be able to find that diamond in the rough item that would be ideal for your room. Decide your top figure and work backwards from there.
Decide on the Ultimate Purpose of the Room
Home and Garden Television provides 11 steps to a well designed room that you can view as advice from many home designers. It is important to think about who is going to access the space the most before deciding on things such as furniture or wall fixtures. If the space is going to be used as a teenage space rather than an adult reading room, what you decide to include in there will greatly be different.
Put your Stamp on it
In the end, you want your room to represent something that you can be proud of. Put your own stamp on it to make it yours from start to finish. Get ideas from others, but in the end, know the decision will be coming from you. Develop your theme, invest in it wisely, get the appropriate help, and let the magic happen. In the end, you want to make sure that this is a room you are proud to always keep the door open when guests arrive.
