When it comes to designing a space, always start at the top and work your way down. Start with the most important features first; then move down the list. The less important features can be added later on as you progress, so don’t let your budget keep you from building the best home possible.

Color Scheme:

When planning your room, you’ll want to select a color scheme that is complementary to your home decor. Don’t go overboard on color; if you’re using a neutral color, just make sure that it matches the paint you have already selected. If you need an extra hint of color, choose a bold color, and then play it up by including a subtle design shade. You don’t need a huge palette of colors, just a couple that compliments the rest of the design well.


When you get ready to begin your design plan, you’ll need to know the flooring type you’ll be using. The tile, laminate, or other non-slip floorings may not be the best choice if you have children or pets.

Window Treatment:

For the best results, choose a color scheme that complements the room. If the color scheme is a dark brown, consider a contrasting color like a light tan. If you have an iron porch swing, add a coordinating sunflower print on the porch steps or use a sunflower pattern on the shutters to give the room a warm feeling.


The placement of lights in your interior design plan will play a huge part in creating a look you won’t soon forget. Choose the fixtures that work best with the decorating style you chose and find the right colors for each one.

Design the Space:

Take a tour of the space before you start the interior design plan so you can get a feel for it. You don’t need to follow any strict guidelines just to make sure everything has the right amount of space, and it feels right. Use your imagination and take your time. When designing your space, don’t make everything feel overcrowded because you’ll feel claustrophobic when you have too many objects to look at, so plan your room out carefully.

With all the tips and tricks you’ve read here, I’m sure you’ll find that it’s easier than ever to create a new home with a smaller budget. Be sure to follow these tips and tricks for more efficiency with your new home.

Floor Plans:

Before you begin your design plan, look at the space you’ve chosen, and determine what type of flooring will be best. If there are large furniture pieces in the room, you might want to consider a carpet or tile. If you need to use hardwood flooring, you will need to consider how much room you have to work with.


Look at the area around the window and decide where the light will come through the windows. You’ll also need to consider the colors of the wall that’s right next to the windows, as well as the wall above and the ceiling.


Find pictures that match the wall and arrange them, so they’re even across the room. If there are different pictures on each wall, make sure you’re matching them.


There are so many different styles of paint, wood, mirrors, and fabrics to choose from that the possibilities are endless. Use these ideas to help you get started and keep you creative and create the home you have always wanted.
