Before starting anything else you must start to give a thought about your style. What style your home should reflect as it is your home. So define your style first, and take elements of inspiration from that style, and then do the space planning.
If you think you cannot do the space planning as good as the professionals do, then you can hire a space planner who can help you achieve your goal and that shouldn’t cost fortune. Once you’re through with these basic requirements then follow the hacks and tips that we’re going to explore.
♠ Start With Inexpensive Changes:
Let me help you make a list of things which fall under this category.
- Linens & Pillows
- Door & Drawer knobs, Handles.
These are the things which are available in wide range and they are not that expensive too. By changing them or just updating them will make a huge difference in how they look and perform. Through spending very little you get a significant amount of change you require in redecorating your home.
Please consider to make a list of their quantity, and appropriate sizes according to each room and purpose of that room.
♠ Let There Be Paints:
Paints are the easiest way to change the entire look and feel of the room for very minimum cost. They wouldn’t cost a fortune and will give the maximum effect.
If you were to take my opinion I’d suggest you to go for a neutral color palette as it is the safest bet. Neutral color palette plays really well with all the colors that may or may not be already available. If you have a furniture that is darker in shade then it would definitely go with neutral color theme.
By neutral color I clearly do not mean that paint the whole house in beige color. Explore different color schemes too.
