Things to keep in mind when designing your home interior
Get creative – but not too creative!
It’s easy to dream a bit too big when it comes to designing the interior of your home. You might be inspired by pictures you see online, but just remember – not every property can take extravagant changes! Keep in mind that a lot of things you see online could have had hundreds of thousands of dollars to make it look the way it does – so not ideal for those on a budget! Also, some interior design ideas can’t be implemented for certain structural reasons. It’s good to get inspired by ideas you see online, just keep in mind that their environment and budget will be different to your own.
A great way to get started on collecting ideas is to open a Pinterest Board. You can ‘pin’ ideas that you like – here’s a great home decor board to get started.
Create a budget right from the get go!
Don’t start buying a single thing towards your home interior until you have a budget finalised! Without a budget, you’ll find yourself spending much more than you planned to – not something you want to do when you’re likely to already have a large mortgage!
Here’s some great advice on home interior budgeting to get started.
Don’t necessarily go for what’s in style!
Remember those brown and orange carpets and curtains that were such a hit in the 70’s? Of course, they are not such a hit in today’s time… and that’s because trends and styles change! Regardless of whether you’re picking which colour to paint your walls, what furniture to put in the bedroom or what gas fireplace you’re installing in the lounge, make sure to keep in mind what will easily be outdated.
Most of all – have fun!
Don’t let this become a stressful time for you and your family – remember that in a few months, even in a few weeks time, you’ll look back and think “what stress?!”. Take this time to really figure out what it is that you and your family need in a home, as it’s likely you’ll be here for many many years to come.
One way to not let things become too stressful is to create a check-list of everything you need to do for your home interior. Tick it off as you go and feel a bit of weight taken off your shoulders each time you do!
