When you buy a property in pre-construction, you are at an advantage when it comes to interior decoration. This is because you’re going to have plenty of time to prepare and come up with ideas. Plus, if you want to tell the builder to make some changes to the floor plan, then you can do so too. So you have a lot of options, and it’s possible to come up with a dream home.
Should You Work with an Interior Decorator?
When you decorate a house or an apartment, you’re going to have to go by what you’ve liked in the past. Don’t rely on an interior decorator to do up your home for you. Of course, you can take the help of an interior decorator. But it’s also important to put in your own input.
Think About Homes You Have Lived In/Seen
In order to understand what you like about a home, you should think about homes you have loved. This could be a home that you lived in in the past. Or it could be one of your friends’ homes. Or it could be a home that you’ve seen in a magazine.
Homes That Look Good vs. Homes That Feel Good
Of course, it’s better if you’ve actually lived in the home because then you’ll know whether that home is comfortable or not. If you’ve just seen the home in a magazine, then you might like the way it looks, but you may not be very comfortable when you actually have to live in it.
Start Decorating When Your Home Is in Pre-Construction
Once you have an idea of what you like, you can work with your interior decorator to do up your home in that style. Or you can start looking at pieces of furniture and buying them or putting them on hold until your home has actually been constructed.
Understanding Dimensions and Buying Furniture
Be sure to keep the size of your rooms in mind. In fact, it’s best to write the dimensions down and carry them around with you while you’re furniture shopping. That way, you’ll know right away when something is going to fit or not going to fit in your home.
