1. Go on site to your decoration meeting and during the day

It is very important to discover space in real life, and not through photos and plans. This is the only way we can assess the space and adapt the choice of colors. And of course, there is a suitable time slot for perceiving natural light, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. in winter. So make sure that you are well aware of the lighting and the space long before you make plans. 

2. Prepare some style and moodboards 

Look at trendy mood boards and schemes long in advance. These total look boards are used to help you understand the difference in styles, and what you may or may not like. These boards, which you can renew regularly according to trends, allow you to determine expectations and to work out what will work best for the space you have.   

3. Plan a good décor budget

It is very important to know the decoration budget of your home decoration before making any decisions. You need to know what you will end up spending the most money on. For example, will it be furniture or perhaps wallpaper? Do you want special feature walls, or nice lighting? Do you need modern finishes or want to adapt to a smart home? These are questions to ask before setting a budget because this will dramatically change it!  Taking the measurements is essential in order to be able to offer suitable furniture and to carry out layout and 3D plans.

4. Tidy up and clean up!

Before starting any work, a thorough clean is vital to ensure that you have reached all the spots before you cover them up. This will prevent any rodents entering or any other critters making home. You must also cover anything important to you in case it is splashed with paint. You should consider marking off certain areas and for this you can use Marine Traction Tape for example, which is incredibly sturdy. You must also be aware of the length of time it will take. Do you want to stay elsewhere or are you happy to live inside whilst you renovate? Light decorations shouldn’t be too problematic for you. 

5. Use professionals?

Sometimes, it is good to get people in to do the work for you, especially if it is not your forte or you’re not physically able to do it. Whilst you don’t have to get the professionals in, just know that sometimes decorating can be stressful – especially when you’re working with other family members, or your spouse! Be prepared for things going wrong and possible issues. Once you have overcome this, you will be good to go. Your dream house is only a few weeks away!
