Where to Start When Designing Your New Space
Avoid overwhelming indecision with these 4 tips.
Good design often begins with a healthy dose of daydreaming. But how do you make your vision a reality? Starting is often the hardest part. Here’s a few tips to bring your new space to life:
- Start with what you know. If you’re not planning to redo the entire space, list out what you know is staying like the paint color or key furniture. Building off of an existing color or design scheme can be the helpful jump-start you need.
- Let Pinspiration be your guide. Chances are, you’re one of the 300,000 million monthly users on Pinterest making boards for just about everything that interests you. Try uploading a photo from a favorite Pin to our Floorvana+ visualizer tool which uses your inspiration to provide a tailored selection of flooring options.
- Consider Hiring a Professional. If you’re over your head, you may need the help of a professional interior designer. Many of our flooring retailers offer design services free of charge, so be sure to check with them first. Click here to find a retailer near you.
- Share your mood board. When shopping for your new space, bring your mood board complete with your fabric, paint chips and other inspiration with you to help quickly communicate your design vision. It will help you and the in-store sales associate narrow down choices to find the best aesthetic and hue, so you get to your dream floor faster.
