Are you eager to design and decorate your home?

Perhaps your home is a blank canvas and you’re ready to start adorning it with luxury furniture, beautiful artwork, and tasteful accessories. Maybe you’re a long-time homeowner whose space has become stale or outdated.

In any case, it’s never too late to start from square one and invest in residential interior design services to create the ideal look for your residential space. Here are four important steps you’ll need to take along the way!

1. Compile Your Space’s Measurements

Whether you plan to decorate a single room or your entire home, you won’t get very far without knowing the dimensions and the unique limitations of your space.

Take some time to measure the length, width, and height of your area, and make note of any structures that you will need to work with—from stairs and doorways to rails, columns, and more.

Using these measurements and important details, sketch up a floor plan to scale. This will help you visualize the layout of your furniture!

2. Create a Budget for Your Project

With a visual representation of your space in hand, it’s time to make a budget for your project. Create a spreadsheet that includes a total dollar amount you can afford, as well as a list of items sorted into three buckets—priorities, wants, and extras.

Keep in mind that you usually get what you pay for when buying furniture, interior décor, and accessories. Any extra funds you can put towards your project will allow you to invest in durable, high-quality, luxury pieces that not only wow family, friends, and guests but also last for many years to come—ultimately saving you money in the long run!

3. Start Drawing Inspiration

Ready for the fun part? It’s time to start dreaming of how you might decorate your space. Of course, the internet is an incredible resource you can use to your advantage. Draw inspiration from online home decorating stores and interior design blogs. Bookmark your favourite pieces and concepts so that you can easily refer to them later.

You might even choose to visit a high-end furniture store in person and browse the various styles, materials, and colours that are available.

4. Leave the Legwork to a Residential Interior Designer

If this already sounds like a ton of work, that’s because it is! The truth is that many homeowners lack the time, energy, or skills to bring their dream design to life.

Fortunately, a professional designer or decorator has the expertise to help you achieve your dream look. At Direct Interiors, we have several credentialed designers on staff who specialize in transforming residential spaces.
