Redesigning a space in your home creates many opportunities for you as a homeowner. For one, adding updates to the current layout and fixtures can improve the value of the space. Making these changes can also improve the function of the space, along with your lifestyle. Finally, redesigning a space in your home can create an intangible reward, like changing the way you feel about a space. When you decide to redesign a space, you want to approach this project with confidence. Here are some steps you can take to feel more confident about your next big home project.
Start with Redesigning One Room as a Learning Exercise
If you’ve never completed an interior redesign project before, starting can feel a little intimidating. There are many choices to make, and deciding on the scope of the project is one of the biggest. Before you give yourself the task of reimagining your entire home, start with a single room. Consider choosing a smaller space that you can use as a learning experience. Focus on executing your redesign plan in just this space for now. You’re bound to learn so much during the process that will set you up for success in other spaces.
Create Deadlines and a Budget for Your Project to Give Yourself Confidence
Having a plan is a great way to create confidence in whatever it is you’re about to do. Creating deadlines and a budget for your project — whether it’s a simple DIY job, or it requires contractors — is a great place to start. Create a concrete timeline like, “I will complete my upstairs bathroom redesign in one moth.” This can help you determine a realistic scope of what you try to accomplish during the redesign. Your budget can have the same effect. If you’re trying to complete the project for $300, you probably won’t be tearing out the tub and putting in a shower.
Consider Working with a Design Professional
If the entire process of home redesign intimidates you, consider working with a professional! An interior design professional can offer a consultation, create a design plan, help with the purchasing and contracting portions of the redesign, and give you assurance during the process. Your interior design professional can also consider the big picture while working on an individual space. How will the redesign change the function of the space? How will your newly furnished living space tie into the adjacent kitchen? A design professional can give you peace of mind.
