So you’re thinking of redecorating your home. That’s a fantastic way to add new, fresh personality to your space without dealing with the hassle of moving to a new home. Clients often ask us how they should go about picking the right items to invest in while redecorating their space. To answer that question, we’ve created a brief guide that you can follow to help you pick out the right items for your home.
Start With the Essentials
While this will differ depending on the type of room you’re decorating, it’s important to figure out which items your room absolutely needs. You'll want to consider main pieces like a sofa, table, chairs, and a bed. These are essentials for long-term comfort and functionality, so it’s important to start with your main pieces, and then see what you have space and money for once those are set up. Start with building the foundation, and then go on from there.
Search For High-Efficiency Options
When you’re designing a room with limited space, it’s important to do whatever you can to save as much space as possible. A spacious room with minimal clutter will enhance your physical, mental, and emotional well-being, making you feel less stressed and more energized. To help you do this, you can explore different options for the type of furniture you’re picking out.
Built-in furniture is a great way to add extra storage to your space, so you can keep your items organized and out of the way. Pieces are usually strong and durable, and will blend in with the rest of your room. You can also check out multi-functional pieces — furniture that serves more than one purpose and can be used in place of two separate items. A common example would be a sofa bed or a table with a storage compartment underneath.
Invest in High-Quality Items
An important tip to keep in mind is to invest in high-quality items that are durable and will last you a long time. No one wants to deal with the extra hassle and additional expenses of getting their furniture replaced every couple of years. When you’re willing to pay a higher price for high-quality items, chances are, you won’t need to worry about that for a long time . The many years of comfort and convenience you experience will pay off in the long run. Keep in mind that when you invest in your home, it will invest back in you.
See What Else Your Space Needs
Now that you’ve covered the essentials, it’s time to take a look at your space and see what else it needs. Your goal with redecorating should be to enhance comfort, wellness, and feelings of joy in your home. How much space do you have left to work with? Are there any finishing pieces that might enhance the appeal of your space? How much money do you have left in your budget? Candles, houseplants, artwork, pillows, cushions, and lamps can make your home feel more calming and beautiful, without paying a high price.
