How to Plan Your Interior Home Design

Interior Design
When you begin to design your dream home, it's easy to get overwhelmed with all of the possibilities. Whittling your initial burst of ideas down to manageable choices is the key when you start out on your design journey. If you get excited and start in the middle of the process of choosing flooring, paint, furnishings, and decorations, you might have issues with your budget and other practical tasks. For this reason, it's important to set up a game plan to begin with and stick to it for the whole length of time that your designing takes. Here are some initial steps you can take to make the entire process more orderly, including what you should do before picking out your furniture and hardwood flooring in Long Island, NY.

Getting Your Measurements and Preliminary Info

If you're doing a room or more, the process should start with measuring the space, finding the supporting walls and studs, and deciding whether you want any structural changes to the layout. If you want to knock down a wall, you should go in with that planned rather than deciding when you've already planned based on the previous layout. Take a measuring tape and stud finder and get a good idea of the bones of your residence. Note down all of this information in a place where it won't get lost. When talking to contractors or helpers at stores, you will be able to easily reference this information for them on the spot.

Brainstorming Your Vision

Next, use some paper or even a software program to start doodling and brainstorming. What sort of theme or atmosphere do you want your design to revolve around? Write down words that inspire the idea of your design look and create a map of the most important ones. You can think up colors and decide if they work together; think about textures, including fabrics and flooring; and pull all the threads together to see what you come up with. If you get stumped, consult your family, friends, and contractors working on the project that might have more knowledge about the process you are stuck on than you do.

Price Comparing and Setting a Budget

After you have some initial ideas, and a couple of elements that you know you want to incorporate into your design, start making a budget. Take each area of your design (floors, walls, furnishings, etc) and estimate costs. You can google prices or go into several home design retailers to price compare. Once you have a good idea of the prices of each item you will want to buy, shop around online for better deals. Remember that shipping and insuring items costs a bit and that you can't guarantee the quality of home improvement items from third-party vendors outside of the country. This savvy approach to design can save you hundreds of dollars and help you find the exact item that you imagine in your home.

Flooring and Walls

Flooring and walls are some of the most important parts of setting the mood and theme of your interior design. Tile, laminate, carpet, and hardwood flooring in Long Island, NY are some of this year's in-demand flooring materials. You will want to choose flooring in the beginning of your process because it will be one of the main costs you incur. Paint is cheap, but can be a lengthy process to apply, so you will want to plan out when you do it (before you install your flooring, preferably) and which color scheme you want to go with ahead of time. With all of this preparation, your home maintenance will go smoother and you will be better prepared to make your dream interior.
