Whether you are painting your skirting boards or giving several rooms in your home a new look, choosing the colors and finish can be the most exciting part of the project. If you don’t feel especially creative, these tips can help to inspire you.
Remember its Your Home
You will probably be living in your home for at least a few more years, so it’s important to really give some thought as to how you want your home to look. If you aren’t sure where to start, ask your builder for recommendations or get ideas from books, magazines and TV programs, but ultimately do what is best for you and fits your personality and budget.
Focus On What Matters
Don’t over think the light fixture or the design of the handles on your cabinets if it just doesn’t matter that much to you. Most homeowners find that some features are obviously more important to them than others, and when considering a home renovation you should focus on what really matters.
Make the Choice Easier by Limiting Your Selections
It can actually be more difficult to make a decision if you have a lot of choice, meaning that your selection process can be stress free and easier if you limit the choices you have.
Create a Budget and Track It
It’s obvious advice to shop only within your pre-determined budget, but surprisingly easy to overspend, especially a little extra here and there which can really add up. One compromise is to save money in one area so that you can spend more in another area.
Make Your Selections In a Compact Timeframe
Once you limit the length of time that you have to make a decision, you will find that it’s much easier to make. You can maintain a clearer idea of what you want your newly designed home to look like if you limit the amount of time you have to decide.
Hope these tips are useful and can help you make the right decision when it comes to choosing new finishes or a new look for your home.
