Thank you for your interest in our interior design project tips. In the video we shared with you the importance of making sure the space you are working on will function for YOU. This is actually a good place to start when it comes to planning a space. Putting thought into and writing down how you plan on using the space is imperative.
It also makes sense to look at other spaces in your home while you’re going through this process. Are you getting what you need out of the spaces in your home? Do you have rooms in your house that are rarely used? Often times, people get stuck by the labels of the rooms in their homes and rob themselves of the use of those spaces while they’re struggling to cram the rest of their lives into the rest of their homes.
Something else to consider is how much space you’re giving to a particular activity versus the amount of time and importance placed on that activity. I’ve seen unused bedrooms turned into full on dressing rooms (dreamy!) Spaces intended to be sitting rooms turned into playrooms. In my own home our dining room is now a TV room and we’ve turned our Living room into a more formal dining/living space which has made our whole house function so much better.
