You’re thinking of starting a New Design Project. Fantastic! You’ve been looking around your home and feel it’s time to make some changes. However, what should you know before you start to choose anything?
Before Starting a New Design Project
You need to ask yourself three questions.
- How do you want to use this room?
- What is the mood you want for the room? e.g. comfortable, formal, sanctuary
- How much do you want to invest in this project with time, money, and effort?
Know-How the Room will be Used before Starting a New Design Project
It’s important to carefully consider the use of space. For instance, does your family love to eat dinner in front of the TV, or are they the type of family that sits down together at the table? Something to keep in mind when designing the room would be performance fabrics and area rugs that can handle the traffic. Also the size, height, and shape of the dining table. Maybe a breakfast bar with some bar stools is what’s needed.
The mood of a room is in reference to the way you feel in the space. In other words for a family room design, you may want a great place to relax, enjoy a cocktail, and watch the fire. But if you have a house full of young children. The family room could be for reading, playing games, and watching TV.
The last part of a successful design project is understanding how much you are willing to invest in your project. In other words, how much time do you personally want to spend on the project? Do you want to invest time shopping? However, if you haven’t answered the first two questions you could be running all over the place from store to store trying to figure out your design style and the purpose of the room. Also how much have you allotted for the cost of the project? Doing your homework on the cost of things will go a long way. Similarly, researching and understanding the costs in a kitchen design or living room design will give you a better idea of your overall costs.
In conclusion, the best-laid plans start with a plan of action, implementation, and follow through to completion.
