Deciding to redecorate your North Dallas home? Here are 3 important things to consider.

This client wanted a contemporary home with white walls and white marble floors but wanted their room to also be dramatic. Black and bright colorful accents were used to create drama.

 1.  Hire a North Dallas interior designer who can help you with space planning.

An interior designer will make sure you have the right size pieces and good traffic flow. Many costly mistakes are made when there is no detailed floor plan.  You should always have a floor plan even if it is a small project.  If you are changing your kitchen layout, you need to make sure that those changes don’t interfere with any adjoining rooms. Firstly, and most importantly you need to determine your focal point (outside view, TV, fireplace….) and arrange your furniture around it. You also need to think about facing each other for conversation. As you can see, space planning can get very complicated. 3D rendering help with space planning (see below)

2. Find the right decorating style for you.

Go to or look at magazines and find some photos that you like.

Here are some of the questions that we ask our clients to determine what style they will be happy with.

  1. First of all, do you like the latest fads or do you want something special created based on your preferences?
  2. Do you want the room to be casual, semi-formal, or formal?
  3. Do you like to entertain?
  4. How are you going to use this space?
  5. Do you want the room to be dramatic or understated?
  6. Do you like patterned fabrics?
  7. Do you like clean lines or do you want more detail?
  8. What type of comfort do you want?

You should make the right decision because you are spending a lot of money redecorating your home. You won’t want the latest designer trend that will go out of style in a few years. The reason designer trends go out of style is that too many people end up with the same look and people get tired of it.

3. How do you choose the right colors?

Colors in your home will affect the way you feel.

When planning your decorating, think about these questions.

  1. Do you want your home to have light colors, medium colors, or dark?
  2. Do you want your home to have a warm feel or cool? If you said you want warm, then you might not want some of the latest design trends of white walls, floors, and furniture with blue accents.
  3. How you want to feel in your home. Do you want to walk into your home and say WOW or do you want it to be understated?  The understated look can be accomplished by using mostly neutral colors for your backgrounds and furniture. Drama can be created with the use of rich colors. If you like more neutral colors, there are other ways to create drama, like large dramatic furniture, artwork, or accents.
  4. Lastly, colors will affect the way you feel in your home. Color can make you feel invigorated or it can make you feel calm. A professional Dallas interior designer can help you with these decisions.

In conclusion, planning is very important when redecorating your North Dallas home.
