How do I redecorate my Plano home? What are the most important things I should do?  Do I need the help of an interior designer?

A lot of home owners in Plano are wanting to redecorate their home to be more like the newer homes in Frisco and Prosper. The most important part is to have a plan.

 1.  A good floor plan is always needed and is a great place to start with your redecorating or remodeling plan.

Many costly mistakes are made because there was no redecorating plan.  If you are decorating a very small room, you should still start with a plan.  Do you need to change the flooring?  Do you need to change the paint color or will you use wallpaper?  What about the lighting?  There are many things to think about even in a small room, and that is why everyone should start with a plan or costly mistakes may be made. A professional interior designer can help you avoid costly mistakes.

2.  DETERMINE WHAT LOOK IS RIGHT FOR YOU

This means is what style do you want to use in redecorating your home?

Cut out some pictures of rooms that you like out of magazines or use the internet to find room styles that you like.

Ask yourself these questions to determine what style you want:

  1. Do you want to go with the latest trends or do you want to be a trend setter?
  2. Is your lifestyle casual, or formal?
  3. What type of entertaining do you do?
  4. How would you like this room to function?
  5. What type of fabrics do you like?
  6. How do you feel about mixing  patterns?
  7. Do you like straight lines or curved lines?
  8. Do you like carving or detail?

Do you prefer warm, or cool colors? If you said you want a warm room, then you don’t want a lot of blue or stark white.

Which of the following best describes the feeling that you want to achieve? Dramatic or understated?  If you said you wanted a dramatic room, then you probably don’t want all neutrals. If you said you want a light airy look, then you probably don’t want red walls.
