Are you thinking about remolding your home? Or renovating your standard issue apartment? It’s a big step that requires a lot of ideas. You have to carefully plan out the entire thing, hire talented consultants and entire teams of contractors to get the best results.
So where should you start? It might seem like an insurmountable task, but fear not; take it one step at a time. We’re here to help you figure it out. Let’s look at 5 things you should do in order to get the best home interiors.
1. Finding a good designer
Finding a good designer is the first step. If you hire a nice, professional interior designer, then you’ll get a one-stop shop at their consultancy. Not only will they articulate your rough ideas into truly spectacular visions, but they will source the best contractors in the market for you – which will ultimately save you a lot of time and headache.
2. Communication is key
After hiring a good designer, you should probably work on your communication. If you cannot communicate what you want in your home interior design, then the end product could be a veritable disaster. So you should verse yourself in some basic interior design lingo and do a crash course in HDB guidelines to better communicate your ideas and know the restrictions.
3. Make your own mood boards
Do you know what designers do right before they start planning the blueprints of your designs? They create mood boards. A mood board is a collage or collection of all the ideas, colors and even materials that you find inspiring and want a part of in your own home design. When you make a mood board, your vision automatically becomes clear for the designer to interpret.
4. Create an estimate of your budget
Understanding your budget is always a key part before you launch a full scale renovation. You have to allocate a specific amount of funds for the renovation, which will keep your from going overboard when the time comes for execution. Your interior designer can help you manage this budget and keep you from busting it.
5. Understand your limitations
There are times when you need to understand that something you want in your home remodel is simply not possible. This could be because of space limitations, or the HDB guidelines, or budget busting or even because the style is simply not suitable for your home. So understand these limitations before you go forward.
