How to Remodel a Room

homepage-living-room-couchAre you thirsty for something new? Have you ever wanted that new look for your room, but have no clue where to start? Whether it's your living room, bathroom, bedroom, parlor, or hallway that you are looking to remodel, organizing the process of remodeling a room is very important.

1. Analyze and Brainstorm. Why do you not like your current room? Does the furniture clash? Is it not your style? Does it lack functionality? In some cases, you may just be bored with your old room and need to rearrange the furniture. However, take into consideration that tearing down a wall to expand a room is going to take much more money than if you change the bedspread and repaint the walls. Visualize how your ideal room would appear and how the room would feel. Do you want the room to feel open and spacious or snug and homey? Do you want the room to have a warmer feel or a cooler feel? Paint a picture in your mind of what your desired outcome is, and make sure it will be a haven that you and others enjoy spending time in.

2. Clean. It is very hard, if not impossible, to remodel a room that you can't even walk through because of all the clutter on the floor. If your room is not already clean, tidy it up.

Tackle you clothes, tidying is a good time for looking through your closet so have two piles: one pile for dirty clothes, and one for clothes to give away. The clothes that are clean and you want to keep you fold or hang in your wardrobe.

Is your design taste more traditional or contemporary? Are you drawn to a modern chic look with straight lines and contrasting colors? Or do you feel more comfortable with warm inviting colors and a traditional Old World or cottage-like feel? Think about how the rest of your house is designed and what you're most comfortable with. Choose your colors and what changes to make first.


New appliances are the most common upgrade for a kitchen. With all of today's technology and design options, new appliances will save you money on utility bills and give you a new fresh look. For a sleek and modern look, consider stainless steel appliances. For a more traditional look, think about white or almond-colored appliances. You may even consider using face plates that can match the cabinetry.
