We live in paradise. It’s important that we try to express that feeling through designs and furnishings.
Find inspiration. Before hiring a designer for remodeling and decorating, find your inspiration in design-oriented magazines, books, TV shows and a visit our furniture showrooms. Start making a list of ideas you want to try, and start your to-do list. Keep it simple—when remodeling on a tight budget, do-it-yourself projects are best.
First things first. The first step in arranging a space is determining its size. Use a tape measure to get the dimensions of a room. Or, a quick tip: measure your foot and then walk heel to toe across the room. If you’re running out the door to the furniture store, at least walk across the room and count your footsteps.
Stage for sale. Staging can make a world of difference when selling a home. Evaluate your home one room at a time. When buyers walk through the living room or family room, they will want to envision spending time as a family and entertaining guests. Seek professional staging advice at Pacific Orient Traders.
