Questions to Consider When Decorating

February 5, 2021


Purchasing a new home is such an exciting experience. From designing to decorating, there is so much to do to make your house truly a home meant for you. Before you get started on your next decorating, or redecorating, project, ask yourself these questions to make sure you stay on the right track.

Who is Living in the Space?

This may seem like a no-brainer, but design can easily overpower function when it comes to a space. All said, functional, well-designed spaces are 100% attainable by keeping a plan in mind. Before you begin your project, think about every person (and creature) who may be living in the space. Is it just you and your significant other? Do your grandchildren come to visit periodically? Will a new furry friend be joining your family in the next few months? By keeping all this in mind, you’re able to create a functional space for everyone.

What Are Your Goals for the Space?

There are so many great online resources to use for design inspiration before beginning a new project. After getting a good grip on who will be living in the new space, use resources like blogs, Pinterest, Instagram, and home design websites to find inspiration for how you will decorate. Remember, you don’t have to match someone else’s design perfectly! By taking bits and pieces of designs you love, you’re able to design a space truly unique to you and your needs.

Does the Space Need to Be Used for More Than One Purpose?

Last but not least, come back to the functionality of a room. While a great designed living room, kitchen, or home office can be a beautiful thing to look at, remember that you’ll need to be comfortable to move around in the space. For example, if you work from home and use your printer every day, it might not be functionable to keep it tucked away in a closet. Instead, find a solution that is easy on the eyes and works for your lifestyle.
