1. ESTABLISH YOUR STYLE
It is often a little daunting working out where to start when undertaking a decorating project. Your living room is a key space in your room, and you want to get it just right. There are a number of things that you need to consider before you actually pick up a paintbrush and transform your space. The biggest decision is to gain an understanding of what style you would like it to be. Do you love the texture and soft colours of Scandi style? Are you more of an Modern Industrial type? Or do you love the bold colours and accessories of Boho style? There are plenty of places that you can research decorating styles to ensure that you know exactly what you love. Try researching on Pinterest, look in leading home magazines, or pop into your local Paint Place store and talk to the experts there about your options. Once you have decided on the style, you can get started on planning your project.
1. DO YOUR RESEARCH
Whether you are looking at selling your property or simply giving it a bit of a facelift, first impressions count. You need to ensure that your home has great street appeal. Firstly, you need to assess what your current street appeal is. Stand across the road and have a good look at your home. Better still ask a neighbour or friend to give you unfiltered feedback too. What works? What needs improving? What looks scruffy and what catches your eye? Do your research by taking a drive around your neighbourhood and making notes on homes that are well presented and appealing. What is different about them. If you need extra inspiration, visit real estate sites to see how homes in your area are presented. If you are looking at selling, remember that the first image people look at is the exterior. This will motivate them to either click on your property or scroll past it.
1. MAKING THE RIGHT FURNITURE CHOICES
To give the illusion of more space, choose furniture pieces that have clean, simple lines. These will keep the space from feeling cluttered. Raise your key furniture pieces off the floor to keep your room airy and open and always ensure that these pieces have delicate legs to avoid them taking up precious space.
Take your time to plan your furniture layouts carefully. Arrange your key pieces around the outside of the room and always make sure that nothing is blocking the traffic flow. Allow some space between your wall and the back of your couches, to allow your room to feel more open.
