Know Everything About The Three Biggest Interior Design Questions
starting any interior design or remodeling project, you need to think
about the three biggest areas. Do you know what they are? You'll find
out below along with some interior design tips on how to handle them.
What To Do
With The Walls?
perhaps the biggest question and the area that can make the most
difference in the outcome of your interior design. Wall color can set
the tone of the room, but many people are afraid to paint their walls
with anything but white. One way to get around this is to buy small
samples of paint that you think you may want on the walls and paint
it on a section of the wall. You don't have to paint the whole wall -
just a 1 foot square section. Live with it for a day and see how it
looks in all different kinds of light. Be advised, however that many
colors - especially darker ones - attain their true beauty from the
look of the entire wall after being layered with several coats of paint.
afraid to go ahead and paint the walls - paint is cheap. If you don't
like the way it looks you can always paint over it!
What To Do
With The Furniture?
Should you buy
new furniture? What if your old stuff is still good, should you have
it re-upholstered? While budgetary concerns may dictate, you should
evaluate the furniture for style and value versus the cost of the
re-upholstering. If you are looking for a sleek modern
style living room and your old sofa is a country style, you
should probably consider buying new. If expense is a problem, take a
trip to your local consignment store. You can buy like new furniture
for a fraction of the cost and if your old stuff is still in good
condition you can consign it and get some money for it to help pay
for your new one.
What To Do
With The Floors?
about floor designs should be based on your personal taste as well as
your budget. Some flooring is extremely expensive and, although it
may be the type that will look best with your design it may not be
affordable, or even practical. When replacing flooring, you should
always consider the use of the room and if the flooring will hold up
well. A wood floor might be a bad choice for a kids playroom and will
soon show the marks and wear of toys being slid across it. Carpeting
might go well in the family room, but if you tend to eat in front of
the TV you'll want to be sure to get a stain resistant type.
