After living in a home for a while or if you purchase a home that someone else designed and decorated, you may find yourself ready for a change.
These changes may come from design preferences or out of necessity. Whatever the reason, have fun with the process and ensure you work with professionals to get it right.
Work with Professional Decorators and Painters
If you are too busy or are unsure of what your specific design aesthetic might be, your best move is to work with professional residential painters and decorators. They will go through the process with you step-by-step to ensure all facets and details are thoroughly covered.
Your decorator will ask you questions about your personal style and that of your family. They will discuss how you live, whether you have a lot of people coming in and out of your home, and if you have pets.
The answers to all of these questions, and many more, will become part of your home design’s overall look and feel as you go about updating it.
Bring the Structure Up to Date
Sometimes, before you go the route of painting and decorating your space for a refresh, you might need to make some structural updates first. This is especially important if you have an older home or an older home that has never been brought up to code as time passed.
Building codes change due to improved technologies, materials, and building practices. All of these things are factors in ensuring you live in a safe home. Work with a licensed contractor to guarantee they find everything that requires an update, such as wiring, pipes, etc.
Incorporate Smart Home Devices
A surefire way to bring your home into modern times is by incorporating smart home devices. The sheer number of options can be overwhelming, so you should start with a few things that will make your life easier and build up from there.
If getting into your home with small children on your hip or bundles of groceries in your arms makes it a difficult task, consider a smart lock.
Depending on the model you select, you can choose an all-in-one component with a key option along with a keypad and remote access that you can control from an app on your phone.
