Instead of being fun, it can get to be an unpleasant and overwhelming task. This is easily solved by finding what inspires you the most and working from there. Start with something that you love and it will likely inspire you to get started. It could be an antique piece of china, a photo from a beloved vacation or a piece of clothing. Possibly, you want to build your design around a favorite chair or a painting. When you do this, you eliminate everything else and become focused on the finished project. In fact, you’re half-way there.
A new design trend can also be the basis for your inspiration. Bright opposite colors are currently in. Women are wearing bright blue jeans with bright pink tops. Although this is in this year, next year, it may seem outdated or garish. Instead of changing your whole house to reflect this trend, consider using accessories. This way if the color changes next year, and you want to change it; it won’t be a major expense. Pillows, candles and silk flowers are easy to work with and can easily be switched out.
A neutral background provides a way to keep it simple so you can add your favorite colors. This way, if you make a mistake it won’t be costly; there is always some trial and error. Having an interior designer will make the process easier, and you will have fewer mistakes. Save all your questions for them; nothing is too simple or complicated. Use them for all of their knowledge.
Picking Out Your Flooring
When it comes to your flooring, choose your materials carefully. Think about the practical as well as the fashion aspect for your flooring. What products are the most realistic for your lifestyle and your needs? Pets, children and dirty feet should be part of your equation. What we often would really like may not fit into our lifestyle. A light-colored carpet may be your preference, but may not be right for your situation. The room should be a personal reflection of you and your taste; however, you may have to compromise to keep it looking good or find another space to make your very own.
Ask yourself what conditions will really satisfy you? Do you ultimately need a floor that is easy to care for, or can you find a way to keep out the kids, pets and dirty shoes? Tile is an option that might give you both the beauty and the cleanliness that you desire. Not only is it practical and durable, it can be breathtakingly beautiful.
Talk with your interior designer about what’s really important to your design as well as what’s practical for your lifestyle. Tile has been used for thousands of years, in various shapes and sizes and is never out of style.
