It never fails to amaze me just how many people love the idea of home designing but don’t necessarily have the time or energy to make it happen. If you are one of those people, I urge you to check out this blog post and see if we can help! We cover topics like where do you start with home designing, what is essential for your new home design and budget? Side note: we’re not saying that you can’t do both – see our article on how to be a master at DIY Home Designing.
How many months in 90 days? Why 90 Days? 90 days is not a random number. I chose 90 days in order to give you a sense of the time frame involved in home design. It will take about 45 days for you to prepare for each phase of home designing, so that leaves you with about 7 weeks left after each phase is complete. This translates into 3 months from start to finish. These numbers may vary according to your pace but it gives you an idea of the time needed to put together a home from scratch, without any prior knowledge or experience in this field.
This blog post will show you how to prepare yourself for the changes ahead as well as provide some tips on choosing colors and decorating. While this article focuses on home designing, we do also have an entire section dedicated to interior design. So, to get started let’s look at a few questions that should help you decide if you are ready for home designing or not.
1. Do You Have A Budget?
Just like with any major purchase in life, it is always important to know exactly how much money you have to spend. The same can be said when planning your home redesigning project! Before making any decisions about your new interior space, figure out exactly how much money you want to spend on each room of the house. You will be able to make some quick estimates once you have a good picture of the kind of home you want to live in.
2. Do You Know What You Want?
Did you know that you don’t have to have an idea in mind before deciding whether or not you want home designing done? Going into it blindly, with no expectations and just giving it a shot can lead to some pretty amazing results!
Instead of making all the decisions for your home redesigning project, let us help steer you in the right direction by providing you with some helpful advice. We can help guide your home design ideas towards the types of interior spaces that will work best for your needs and personality.
3. Do You Have The Time For This Project?
I don’t know about you but I feel that home designing is one of those projects that can drag on for a very long time! There is a lot to consider when designing a new home space, including things like color and paint, flooring and even furniture.
Although the end product may look simple enough, there is actually a lot of planning and decision making involved. This can take some time to complete, especially if you are trying to do it all on your own.
4. Do You Already Know Your Budget?
Determining your home design budget is just as important as knowing how much you are willing to spend on your project. Home designing costs a lot of money, so it is important to make sure that you can afford all of your decisions along the way. This is one of the most commonly overlooked aspects of home designing!
5. Do You Know Where To Start?
As I said, home designing can be a long process and there are a lot of decisions to make along the way. Sit down with your budget in hand and figure out exactly what you want to do. Painting is always a good place to start and it can be easily done on your own if you want!
As you get started, look at other rooms in your house that need refurbishing as well. Not sure where to start? Check out our website for some professional help. We can help you with everything from home design ideas to how to pick the best color schemes.
6. Do You Have All The Materials?
If you are going to be renovating or redesigning your home, you need to make sure that you have all of the necessary materials on hand! Picking them up early will save you the time and hassle of having to wait for them, especially if there is a big shortage at the store. For example, when I was redecorating my living room I found that paint was out of stock everywhere I went! In order to avoid these situations, it is best that you shop around for your materials first.
7. Do You Have All The Equipment?
You will also need a lot of equipment for home designing, especially if you are trying to do it on your own. You will need to get your hands on things like paint brushes, drop cloths and more! There is a lot of equipment required during the home designing process so be sure that you have all of these things on hand. If you have ever redecorated before, then you already know what all this stuff looks like. It might sound silly but sometimes it is easy to forget something important!
