Check this out for the roadmap to achieve the gorgeous house without burning a hole in your pocket

New Year just started and so does the decade. So, many of us may want to change or improve anything and everything [as a resolution], the way we look, the knowledge we posses, our friend’s circle , our room and the list continues….

Not only for new year, but for parties, birthdays, or even for a makeover, one needs to have these tiny changes in life, to break the monotony.

So, if you are the one looking for some inspo and tricks for the same , stay tuned to Jkmedia , because , we’ll be giving you some major décor  goals and the road map to get there .

GROUNDWORK AND A HANDY NOTEPAD:

To reach the finish line, you must know where to start and get directions as required.  Take one step at a time i.e., one room or section of the house like lobby, dining hall etc. Make your weapons handy which are a notepad and a measuring tape. Those basic old logics are of utmost importance.

 

 

 

TAPING IT:

First all you need is a floor plan, with proper measurements and then tape the floor plan. Yes, you read it right, tape it out. Because one definitely cannot remember the exact look and measurements, so marking it with a tape makes it easy for you to know the exact location of your furniture and the space left thereof. This will give a better sketch of what your area will look like.

 

And for that you have to know your measurements of your room or the area you want to redesign or decorate. Matching the scale of furniture to the scale of the room is critical, and almost everyone complaints about it. Either, the sofa or any other piece of furniture is too big that is blocks the space or is too small that is does not meet the requirements. Before you start designing, measure the length and width of each room you intend to decorate, along with the ceiling height and elements that could get in the way like stairs and columns.  It’s also good to measure window openings, along with the wall space below and above and to the sides of each one, to get ready for window coverings, and this is the part that most people ignore and feel guilty afterwards. Carefully measuring these aspects can be a problem solver and help avoids problems in the initial stage only, that will help you give that smooth start.

BUY THE RIGHT SIZE FURNITURE:

PHASES MUST BE PLANNED :

Finish drywall, refinishing hardwood floors and painting ceilings is all messy work .If possible, it’s better to have this type of work completed before moving any furniture or accessories into the space .

 

 

NO TIME TO PANIC:

Go grab the best deal, but not at the cost of your future dream house.  Planning everything first. When you are buying furniture, especially for a new place, do not end up buying unnecessary pieces just because they were on a sale.  People panic when they see nothing but a vacant space, they feel like filling it up, but it proves to be wrong in most of the cases .Because, when you panic, you end up buying the wrong thing that you may regret later on. So, do not buy anything in a hurry. And have control on you. Do not buy that blue sofa cum bed, just because it’s on a sale and you feel like it may help you with the guests coming around. Rather, plan properly and select the best item for you .Like it’s said, do not buy groceries when you are hungry. The same case applies here.

 

BUDGETING:

Another important aspect is budgeting. Before doing anything, go for making a budget. There’s no getting around the math: If you splurge on an unexpectedly expensive chair, you’ll have less money available for the rest of the home. This must be the first step towards decorating or redesigning your area. A mapped out budget somehow frames your setup plan. Though every step is important, but, this one is the most important, as it will make you stick to certain other steps, like inspo , buying furniture etc .

 

LOOK FOR INSPO:

A lot of options are available to look for inspos . Check in magazines, Pintrest , Instagram , to sharpen your personal style .Club your favorite images and make a folder to check the ideas when required , or when you feel like buying something outside your plan . It will also help you to strategize your task.

So, looking for inspo becomes some easy task, right? These options can make your work easier but so does this have the ability to make your Work- In -Progress may stop because, myriad ideas may end up confusing you.

 

MY LIFE, MY RULES- I  AM GOING TO DÉCOR IT MY WAY :

The final selection is to be done by you ultimately. Okay, so this is totally a subjective topic. No rule applies here, apart from what your heart wants. Choose the style you want to decorate your house or room, and then stick to it. Select one type [ it can be a combination one , but stick to that combination ] follow your heart and go on  one path , it will automatically lead you to your desired room/house . It can be Boho, Chic, Warm, Cozy Modern, Traditional or what all is available in the universe. First make a choice and see how easily things start to work. Answer a few questions to yourself first ,

Q-Who will be living here?

Q-Are there children?

 

Q-Are there children?

Q-How many people will be living there? Will you be sharing it with your sibling?
Q-If yes, what is their age group [this question is really very important if you are a mother, because then you must have a comfort zone specially designed for you].

Q-What will you be doing?
Q-Are you a party animal, who will be hosting a lot of parties?

Q-Or, are you a lazy night owl, who will binge watch all the seasons of their favorite series in one night only?

Answer these few questions about your personality to yourself and then decide it accordingly.

 

STATEMENT JEWELLERY OR HOUSE?:

Statement Jewellery must be in your collection. Then, Why not statement house.  This will give a clean look and tends to look expensive and classy, but the secret is, these items can be installed easily without breaking the bank.

 

WHAT’S THE WEATHER :

Rains, snowfall, humidity, or sunny outside, what’s the climate of the area you live. This will decide how you will be adding curtains and chairs and everything. The vibe of your room /lobby/dining area /hall will be decided by the climate around.

ROUTINE IS EVERYTHING:

Last but not the least. Are you a student or have a job or you are a blogger. Do you exercise or do you just lay down and binge watch series, or you are a pet lover or a foodie. These few questions will decidehow your room look will give you the vibe you want. Another helpful element is a wall-mounted mirror, it gives you one last chance to check yourself before you walk out the door.

 

Keep these points in mind while designing your favourite spot  and see the magic which you can create without hiring an interior designer.
