So, you may have acquired your home either through inheritance or from a close friend
or coworker. That is good and all but once you do receive the keys to the house, you
may not like the interior of it so much.
If that is the case, you will need to do a home makeover, but how exactly is that done?
Well, in this article, I will highlight some tips that Grant K. Gibson has shared. This guy
is an interior designer that is based in San Francisco and he has been remodeling
houses for quite some time that he definitely knows his shtick.
Anyway, without further ado, let’s get on with the tips.
Focus on a Theme
Home remodeling always follows a certain theme that the house owners would like.
Gibson said that to help you get some inspiration, you want to go and look at your
closet. That is because it is usually the thing that will allow you to know exactly how you
want your house to be remodeled.
Another inspiration that you can think of is your favorite hotel or place. What are the
things that gravitate you towards these places? Focus on a theme and everything will
be much smoother from here onward.
Identify What You Don’t Like
Aside from following a theme that you like, it is also important to think about the things
that you dislike. Perhaps there is a particular design that you do not want to see in your
house because it evokes negative thoughts and emotions in you. Again, this is
important to think about.
Build Around Your Space
Unless you’re going to buy completely new furniture, it is important that you build
around your existing space. Think about the furniture that will inhabit your living
quarters. Think about the space around the living room, the kitchen, and other areas in
Another thing that you have to remember is that you do not have to buy that really huge
and expensive furniture. So long as you fit on it and so long as it fits your theme, then
that would yield better results.
Start from the Ground Up
And no, I do not mean that you start at the very beginning (i.e. start from scratch) but
what I am trying to say is that you want to focus first on your floor. That is because it will
allow you to know exactly how your entire space is going to look like.
You have complete freedom here. It doesn’t matter if you are going to have hardwood
floors, tiles, stone or wall-to-wall carpeting, or even utilizing some rugs; you will have all
of the creative freedom here.
Starting from the literal ground up will help you avoid the all-too-common problem of
saturating your house with a lot of unneeded things.
Don’t Consider the Price
When you’re going to beautify your house with decorations, do not simply just look at
the brand or the cost but rather, buy things that will actually complement your overall
For instance, even if the painting is made by an unknown artist, if it looks good, then
