When you’re looking to remodel, it’s tough to put a finger on exactly what you want. Perhaps you liked one element of your friend’s exterior or a paint color at the book store. But how are you supposed to remember and communicate these details? Don’t worry, we’ve got your back. Whether it’s your foyer, your business, or your bathroom, these tips can help you find the perfect inspiration for your space.
- Consider who will be using the space. Do you want to come off as elegant to your adult audiences? Do you have a dog like our Otto, who often wears his “work boots” in the house. Thinking about the traffic your space will get can help you implement features that best serve them.
- Identify what you like about the space already. Communicating to your construction team the elements which you would hate to see go is important. That way, you don’t lose the features you love while adding the features you need. This information can also help the team to determine your style and better tailor their suggestions to you.
- Decide how long you want this remodel to last. Do your design inspirations change with the season, or are you looking for a long-term, classic look? Considering future changes helps your team to create a space that can be easily changed or build in stable fundamentals.
- Research. Head to Pinterest, take photos of your neighbor’s eyebrow windows (with their permission, of course…), buy magazines, watch home improvement shows, or pick up paint chips. Showing your team exactly what you like helps prevent miscommunications and provides further inspiration. You can even consider making your own mood board.
