Once you decide that you need to give your house a makeover, you need to stop right there and ask yourself some important questions. If you don’t ask these questions, you will be unprepared and might end up convoluting relatively simple matters. Home décor is a really personal thing. It’s more than giving your home a fancy new look. It’s about what you like and what you don’t. Its about your personal needs, our likes and dislikes. And heading into it without getting it all sorted in your head could end up doing much more harm instead of good to your interiors. Let’s get started with some of the essential questions that you should be asking yourself.
What do you like about the existing room?
Let’s assume that it’s your living room that you are planning to give a makeover. So, there must be some elements of the living room that you would like to retain, or you would feel, are very well done. For instance, you might like the placement of the printed wall frames and you would like to keep them the way they are. That’s a good starting point. You can keep the wall print as the focal point and take cues from there. This will help you prepare a theme, which you can use for the overall makeover of the room.
What do you hate in this room?
Okay, this question is as important as the question above. Understanding what exactly it is that you would like to change about the existing room will help you get a better idea about the direction that you want to head. The better you understand what you like and what you don’t like, the sooner you will be able to come to a solution as to what changes needs to be done in the room.
Get in touch with your inner self and get a better understanding of your taste. A very important point to remember here is that all of this is about personal taste. As the old saying goes "one man’s trash is another man’s treasure". The thing that you might despise is something that someone else just might absolutely adore. At the end of it all, it’s your house, so your likes and dislikes are of relevance.
What colors do you love?
This is a pretty simple one. Just make a note of colors that you like or certain shades that you would like to have in your house, at different places, depending on the mood that you want to set. For instance, you might want to go with a neutral palette of colors that will give your living area a composed and relaxed look.
Is there a certain design in mind that you would like to take inspiration from?
This can be a very important question that you should ask because if that’s the case, then the home décor process will be streamlined and will be easy to implement. Getting design cues form an already existing design will help you come up with your own unique design ideas. Mix and match works great when it comes to home décor and doing so will help you complete the whole process in a much more relaxed and composed manner.
Giving your house a new look is not a simple task but it need not be tough either. It’s just about being clear in your head as to what you really want and you could make home the perfect abode that will leave your friends and family in awe.
