What should your next project be?

Starting a new interior design project can be so exciting and a lot of fun, but for some who have never hired an interior designer before, it may be intimidating. So, what should your next project be and how can you plan for it to get the best results? Today we will be talking about some great interior design projects that are first-time friendly and more advanced. We will also be talking about how to prepare for these projects to get satisfaction in the end.

Is it your first time deciding that you want to hire a professional to design your house? If so, it is a great idea to start off with a small project and see how you like it. One of the major benefits from hiring out an interior designer is that they can personalize your space exactly how you envision while incorporating design rules that will create an appealing and long-lasting modern look. It can be hard to make a room look like all of the features were meant for each other and as if they were sold as a set. That is exactly what interior designers are here for! Some great small beginner projects could be redesigning a bathroom or kitchen. These two places in your home are so important and will increase your property value by a lot. Not only will they pay off, but it will give you the chance to dip your feet into the professional design world while staying in your comfort zone. Once you get the jest and decide you love it, bigger projects will look less intimidating for your next makeover!


If you have worked with an interior designer before, doing a bigger renovation could be right up your alley. Bigger projects are great if you want each room in your home to flow well and feed off of each other. Big projects done by a professional will also bring you years of satisfaction and increase your home value. A bigger project would be classified as an entire home makeover or adding onto your property.


So how do you prepare for a project? First you will want to gather inspiration so you are able to envision what kind of style and features you want in your redesign. It is also a great idea to put together a list of things you love and things you hate so the designer can get a taste of what type of style you are shooting for. If you are particular about the design it is best to communicate thoroughly and questions are always welcome! The more clarification and examples you can bring to the table, the more you and the designer will be on the same page.


Next you will want to think about your budget. It is always best to set your budget a little higher than you expect to count for any changes along the way. A good rule of thumb is to keep your home’s value in mind. Any interior design project will increase the value of your home in the end, which means that your renovations should align with your home’s value so it pays off in the end. Keeping a budget that aligns with the value of your home with a little wiggle room will ensure that your interior design project is able to reach its full potential. You should also be prepared to go over this budget with the designer so they can work around your price range.


Now that you are prepared for your next project, it’s time to get them started. Contact me today and let’s make your visions into reality! Call Adolfson Interior Design at (651) 468-6208 or email kirstin.h@comcast.net.
