There are several basic elements you should consider when giving a room a total makeover or whenever you are starting from scratch. You will want to make sure that you have a general theme which will keep the project on task. You will need the right paint, flooring, and lighting to help accomplish this task as well. We broke down step by step on how to help you successfully redesign your room into a beautiful masterpiece. Let’s take a look.
Step 1: Theme
First and foremost, your design will need to be grounded. The root of any suitable design is a theme. This can be generic such as a color palette or can go more in depth by selecting a design style like Modern or Rustic. Having a theme will establish principles for your design. If you pick colors, try to limit it to no more than three. Use your theme to establish rules. From this point on, everything added to your room must complement or strengthen your overall design theme.
Step 2: Paint
Next, you will need to select paint. If you decide to go with three colors, generally you will want to choose a primary, a secondary, and an accent color. Dividing your colors and having them be evenly split will create more balance and symmetry. Try to use a 60:30:10 ratio for your color choices. If you picked a pre-existing style, you want to find out if it is warm-toned or cool-toned influenced. Luckily, neutrals can go a long way and fit well with any other color. When in doubt, choose a neutral tone.
Step 3: Flooring
After you have established your theme and brought it to fruition with your paint, you will want to pick out the perfect flooring. This too should compliment your theme, but it is vital to understand functionality. Decide what kind of flooring is best for your environment. Carpet can add comfort to the atmosphere whereas tile or hardwood can establish more of a timeless elegance. Tailoring your floor to your room’s traffic and needs is critical.
