Keep these things in mind next time you start renovating your home!
The Big Picture
In every single project we take responsibility of there are dozens of little details we should consider and take care of unless we fancy to face a mission…impossible! For a start, budget is the a and z of a task and only if we hold ourselves within the predefined limits will we be able to make ends meet and afford the cost. Of course, that’s the only way of avoiding getting fired if we are employed. So, planning a home redecoration or renovation demands a respectable amount of time dedicated to thinking.
Another factor that has to be decided well in advance is the final style and sensation we wish our house to radiate. Will it be minimal, vintage or probably modern but elegant? Why not a combination of them all or giving every room another touch? The questions of budget and style must occupy our and our husband’s or wife’s mind for a long time so as to achieve the top possible results with minimum regrets at the end of the day.
Those Tiny Details
Every now and then we discuss with our friends about life, wedding, having kids and for sure renting, buying or building a house as well as purchasing one. That is when we hear a series of stories about mistakes to avoid that our friends…should have avoided. Most of the times, we don’t take seriously their advice since we end up laughing and having a drink or two. But that’s our mistake. Hence, when renovating a house we should consider replacing the door handles as well. They are pieces of furniture too and-trust me-they give up the age of our place and we definitely don’t want that happen.
Let’s not forget about those old incandescent lamps we didn’t bother replacing. Therefore, we should now. There are so beautiful modern led and pendant lights that it’s a pity to keep ourselves back in time. Apart from that, one or two floor lamps may make the difference we have always been dreaming of in our sitting room. Oops, I have to apologize. I nearly forgot all about bedside tables. In reality we all must admit that we underestimate their functionality and their aesthetic presence. But just give a try to the following experiment: take them out of your master bedroom and then take a look. Yeah, it seems rather empty and dull. Of course, it is! Bedside tables are the pieces of furniture that offer regularity, order and a sense of cheerful mood to your room.
What have we learned today? Loads of things. Budget and style are and must always be the first priority. But not only that. Small details, that we cannot ignore from now on, can change the whole atmosphere in a house and paying attention to them will pay back in the long run and in the short run via our guests comments who will sooner or later spot those little differences we thought are trivial or irrelevant.
