Moving into a new home is exciting, but it gets even better when you make those special changes that make it your own. Whether it’s a remolded kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom, the changes will be special and customized to your specifications.

Start Here

Before you get carried away with your decorating, plan a budget for each room. Some rooms may only need paint and a few accessories, while others may need lighting, flooring, or appliances. Your decorating plan must have some flexibility, in the event some of the improvements turn out to be more costly than you expected. If you prefer cherry cabinets for your kitchen, but find them to be out of your budget, consider birch with a cherry stain. Price everything room by room to be sure you stay within the confines of your budget.

Getting Started

The Inspired Room believes the first room to decorate should be the one you plan to spend the most time in. If all the walls and ceiling need are a fresh coat of paint, get that done first and then look at the room again. Shampoo carpets if needed, or clean hardwood floors and tiles. Can the room be made stunning simply by adding gorgeous accessories? Throw pillows for beds and couches are inexpensive but can make the furniture look more thought-out and put together. Scatter rugs can hide a worn spot on an otherwise acceptable carpet, and curtains or valances can add the finishing touch that makes the room beautiful and uniquely yours.
