Record Your Home Improvements – Interior

Will that new HDTV and home entertainment center fit in your existing space, or will you have to remodel the room to make it fit? How can you communicate the size available vs. the size needed? Do you know what’s there now and what was there previously?

What did your living room look like before you remodeled it? What will it look like after the furniture is re-arranged? Your inventory and photo records help make the job of moving furniture matching wall colors, and shopping for new wall and floor coverings a lot easier!

Begin by looking through the old photos taken during the holiday seasons or other occasions. They will help you put together a more detailed sketch of what the rooms looked like at earlier times. These will give you an idea of how the room looked at that time. They may also reveal before remodeling issues like walls or doorways that have been changed.

Now is the time to update views of your rooms. Take photos of various directions of the room. The color photos may even be taken without flash to give you a better idea of how natural window lighting impacts overall view and shadows in the room. Take photos at eye level when standing in the entry, seated in your favorite chair and from a child’s eye view.

Copies of these photos can then be added to the room inventory that you develop and maintain from now on as you make changes and update room furnishings. Some of the current photo storage and software options permit storing the file off site. This can be extremely valuable if you ever have a flood, fire or other disaster.

A more valuable benefit of these records comes during the shopping phase prior to purchase of window coverings, wallpaper, paint, art, furniture or floor coverings. These references should also contain reference measurements like room width, room length and ceiling height. While you’re measuring, don’t forget to measure door widths and sketch out the locations and measurements for wall electrical outlets, hearing and air conditioning vents and registers.

With the current schedule of communication changes, especially HDTV, many consumers are purchasing new, larger screed HDTV units. While the sales people are very helpful at suggesting a larger screen format, you may find that it is just too big for the space available!

How do you plan to upgrade the present equipment and furnishings? Can you do it yourself? If you plan to have someone else do it like a local handyman or interior design or home furnishing company, your planning, outlined above can greatly reduce down time, cost and ultimate satisfaction with the finished job.

Modern Home Design in 4 Easy Steps

There’s something that’s just plain appealing about having a modern home with modern furniture. In recent years, modern home design and decor has seen a dramatic increase in popularity in terms of the number of home builders, modernized subdivisions and modern furniture outlets that are out there. Want to be part of hottest new trend in interior design and home decorating? Here’s how you can take the first step.

Start With One Room

Modernizing a home doesn’t have to be a head-first dive into a shallow river. In fact, it’s much easier to modernize your home in smaller, more comfortable steps. Start the project with a particular room in mind and begin by buying modern furniture for that particular room. Choose a room that you spend a lot of time in or one that gets a lot of traffic from visitors and family members, that way you’ll get the most out of your designing budget by impressing those who visit your home with the new modern furniture you’ll be buying.

Pick a Piece

After you’ve selected a room, choose a piece of furniture that you want to emphasize and build your room around it. For example, if you want to redesign your bedroom, build it around, well, a modern bed. If you want to emphasize your living room, try starting with a modern sofa or center piece. This will give the room a sense of focus and inspiration. It’s always much, much easier to pick a single piece of furniture that you really enjoy and to build a room around it, instead of trying to pack a room full of a hundred different pieces of modern furniture that you only slightly enjoy.

Consider the Size of the Room

The size of the room should be something you consider before you start buying loads of furniture. If the room is large, odds are it’ll be the most expensive one to decorate. To be honest, most modern furniture isn’t cheap. You don’t want to break the bank by starting with the largest room in your home. To get the most out of your money, it’s best to start with the smallest room that you spend the most time in. Try starting with a bedroom or small office and expanding from there.

Do Your Research

Make a list of the furniture that’s in the room you selected. Take this list, go online, and see how much it will cost to replace all of your current furniture with modern furniture. You want to make sure that you’re prepared to spend the amount of money necessary to redesign the whole room. Rooms with modern furniture tend to not mix well with other furniture so you want to make sure you replace it all with one fell swoop. For instance, let’s start with the bed. Do a Google search for “modern furniture beds” and write down the price. Move on to the next piece, write down that price and so on. Do this until your list is complete and add up all of the prices you found to get a good number for a budget. If the final number seems reasonable, start your project!
