What To Consider Before Redecorating Your House

(3 min read) Redecorating a house is more difficult than you think. A house represents your most innate desires, thoughts, and personality to the world. You should relax and think carefully before redecorating your house. There are a few things to consider before you start your dream project. Let’s see what those are.

Find Out Your True Self

It might feel like I am just making this up but think about it. You are going to spend most of your life in that house. It should resonate with who you truly are. If you enjoy the dark, dreamy and bold things in life, then decorating your home with light and breezy colors would just make you uneasy all the time.

Find out your true self. Look deep inside and decide what kind of person you are. Do you like dark atmosphere with bold, vibrant or energetic colors, or are you love a light color palette? What kind of furniture you’re most comfortable with? Straight lined, hardwood, metallic, minimalist or Victorian era design. Jot down all the details before you move forward.

Figure Out The Budget Thing

Most people fall deeply in love with their dream home interior design that they forget to take into account the actual budget behind the redecoration. Their redecoration always ends midway due to the lack of financial means.

Once the budget is all laid out in facts and figures, get rid of unnecessary or redundant upgrades. Compare prices from different sellers and see what best suits your financial budget. After all, no one really wants to live in an unfinished living space. You can skip a few low priority upgrades to get the best and important home interior enhancements for your home.

Don’t Overcrowd The Space

When people start brainstorming for home interior redecoration, sometimes they overdo it. Ours is the era of minimalism, precision and open floor interior designs.

Invest in mosaic artwork to further accentuate the beauty of your room. The best thing about mosaic artwork installation is that it perfectly binds together the aura of the room and draws the eye to the center of attention.

Buy little. Buy the best. Buy beautiful. These are the key ingredients for purchasing the perfect amount of furniture and amenities for your redecoration project. Leave some space in the room and accessorize it with only the most beautiful and the important features in your redecoration plan.

    So many great tips! I agree with figure out who you really are first, and going from there!

    love your photos. Yes changing deco is very important from time to time. My problem is always putting too namy things 🙂

    These are all beautiful images. My husband and I are currently in the process of remodeling our home room by room.

    My husband and I want to redecorate so badly. Paint some walls. Get rid of some of our furniture and get new stuff. But then we think about how this is not our forever home so we don’t really want to make that kind of investment. It’s hard!

  5. Stacie
    April 10, 2019 at 11:50 am

    I love these tips. I’ve never had an eye for interior design, so this helps me a lot. I know I always end up overcrowding the space.

  6. Katie Beck
    April 10, 2019 at 12:06 pm

    Two things really resonate with me in this: Finding your true self and Not overcrowding.
    I think so many times people (myself included) try to make their homes what others will find impressive – not necessarily what truly brings them comfort and joy.
    I also am a HUGE proponent of not overcrowding – something my husband and I are at odds with all the time. He would set our home up like a frat house , with wall to wall couches if I let him 🙂

    In my opinion, furnishing a house is like giving it a soul, ours, but exaggerating losing the compass is easy and calls for falling into the cheap.

  8. Amber Myers
    April 10, 2019 at 1:36 pm

    I’ll keep these tips in mind. I do want to redecorate at some point. We did pull the carpet out downstairs and put in hardwood floors. So that’s something.

    To have rooms this big would be awesome. I need to do some decorating with my floors.

  10. Rachel Lavern

    You are right in that redecorating requires a lot of planning if one intends to do it right. So many things to consider.

  11. Stephanie Stebbins
    April 10, 2019 at 5:36 pm

    We just bought our first house and are currently decorating, etc. These are great tips, thank you so much. I am definitely an “over crowder” I am finding!

  12. christinea
    April 10, 2019 at 6:46 pm

    Figure out the budget thing – Ha! Kinda the most important part. I have started with a vision before that failed miserably because I realized I could not justify splurging on that reclaimed wood, rustic luxury centerpiece…

  13. Roamy
    April 10, 2019 at 7:42 pm

    I just moved house, the walls are white and it makes everything look clinical(to my taste) this post has just come at the right time so thanks so much for sharing.

  14. Ashli Ferguson
    April 10, 2019 at 9:14 pm

    This is SO true. Redecorating can be such a pain and SO expensive. We’re just about to paint and that’s it! ha!

  15. Alexa
    April 10, 2019 at 10:06 pm

    this are great tips! I’m going to try to implement the mosaic one.

  16. Adriana
    April 10, 2019 at 10:48 pm

    Totally agree with these tips. I mean after all, you don’t want to just dive into making all these drastic decisions.

  17. Jessa B.
    April 10, 2019 at 11:26 pm

    My greatest takeaway in this amazing write-up is: Buy little. Buy the best. Buy beautiful. Thanks for all the great tips!

    I’ll be saving this post for when we find our home, we’re currently house hunting right now and I’m positive I’ll want to put my own touch on all of the decor when we move! such an insightful list of tips, thank you for sharing!

    Wonderful pictures. I don’t like overcrowding spaces. Seeing these mosaic arts, I feel like buying one of the mosaic pieces.

  22. Lyosha
    April 11, 2019 at 8:53 am

    very useful tips. Finding your true self is so important. House is reflection of your true self, you can no longer feel your best in the house which is not ‘you’

  23. kumamonjeng

    I totally agree with do not overcrowd the space. Sometimes less is more. I prefer there are more space in the home.

  24. Arun Dahiya

    Awesome tips and cool photos. Yes, I hate overcrowded rooms. Spacious rooms are more soothing and catchy. Thanks for the great tips.

    Budget is the foremost thing one should consider based on that everything else can be taken care.

  26. Kristine Nicole Alessandra
    April 11, 2019 at 9:38 am

    I would have a hard time “finding my true self” as my preferences change drastically from time to time. I am inclined to choose a modern minimalist style, but I am just not sure about the colors.

  27. Aishwarya Shenolikar
    April 11, 2019 at 10:10 am

    Great points there! I think not overcrowding is crucial otherwise the place loses its appeal. I’ve never tried mosaic artwork but it sure blends in!!

    I love the idea of “FIND OUT YOUR TRUE SELF” that is actually a very significant factor in redecorating your house. It describe you, it makes you whole as a person, it represents you. I want to have my own home someday and I want it to have a dreamy theme, more on wooden stuff.

  30. Becca Wilson
    April 11, 2019 at 10:39 am

    These are some really great tips for when it comes to make a house your very own. Budget is definitely important!

    I am OBSESSED with this post and all of these pictures. I think I am going to look at them all day. Great tips- practical. I wish I could apply it as easily as you talk about it!

    • April 12, 2019 at 2:04 pm

      I am so glad you like the post Krista but you’re right you planning and creativity are important but implementation would make it or break it.

  32. Czjai Reyes-Ocampo

    Great tips! For us, the budget would be our biggest consideration.

  33. Natalie
    April 11, 2019 at 10:56 am

    A mosaic would certainly liven up my space. It is such a beautiful accent piece. Will keep this in mind for when I do!

    • April 12, 2019 at 2:02 pm

      A mosaic would add so much to a space, yep I agree.

  34. Sarah Bailey
    April 11, 2019 at 11:10 am

    These are some great ideas, I find it hard to decorate myself I never really know what to do and what goes with what. So I throw things together and hope.

  35. Corinne

    This is such a timely post for us. We are considering some redecorating soon as well. These are all good points for us to think about!

    • April 12, 2019 at 2:01 pm

      This is awesome, wish you all the luck and don’t forget to share with me your deco pics. Can’t wait!!!

  38. Yeah Lifestyle
    April 11, 2019 at 2:44 pm

    These are fantastic tips. It is so important to consider a variety of things before redecorating – you don’t want to be thinking about them after you’ve already started!

  39. Jennifer Morrison
    April 11, 2019 at 2:52 pm

    These are great considerations to have. I truly am a minimalist who prefers wide open spaces, few items on a shelf, and an easy to maintain space. The rest of my family does not come anywhere close to that desire. LOL. But, we work to decorate in such a way that we all feel we are compromising.

  40. natalie
    April 11, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    Oh all these rooms look so stunning!! I would love to redecorate our house but I always struggle to keep to a budget!

  41. maria
    April 11, 2019 at 4:19 pm

    Really great tip! Budgeting is sooo important, you certainly don’t want to start a project that can’t be finished or causes an inconvenient in the end.

  42. Britney
    April 11, 2019 at 4:58 pm

    Yes! I love these tips, I just started redecorating our bedroom last weekend.

  43. Ola
    April 11, 2019 at 6:04 pm

    It’s true that homeowners have to take time to get to know their personal style. Of course minimalism is not the only decor style. So homeowners would want to be careful to follow the styles that fit their personality rather than popular trends.

  44. Janay
    April 11, 2019 at 6:45 pm

    This is a really great list! It’s definitely important to figure out yourself and want you want before redecorating! Also knowing your budget is very important

  45. Julianne Robinson
    April 11, 2019 at 6:56 pm

    Thank you for sharing these tips! We just bought our first house and I can’t wait to implement some of these when designing the interior of my home.

    April 11, 2019 at 9:09 pm

    When we were in the middle of renovating our current home before move-in, I struggled a lot with how to decorate it. I really like the super on trend farmhouse decor style, but have always been drawn to dark colors. Especially after living in apartments and dorm rooms for all of my adult life up to that point, I was dying for more expression. I’m so glad I went with the dark and rich colors my gut pulled me toward.

    • April 12, 2019 at 2:00 pm

      I also find rich colors more fulfilling in terms of expression, it is great that you pulled this off, it feels so good to be right doesn’t it?

    And always know the size of your room and bring a tape measure. We bought a couch that just crowded our living room. It was very comfy, but it makes it difficult to find a great layout.

    These were great tips. Thanks for sharing!

    • April 12, 2019 at 1:54 pm

      UGH! Sorry to hear about your couch! Keep it for when you move to a bigger space.

    April 14, 2019 at 2:31 am

    I so love this post. When I am moving into an apartment, I make sure I create time for viewing and ask if my unit will be the same because I usually start planning in my head where everything will be. And when I move , it still takes me 2 months to get everything in order because I don’t want to buy unnecessary stuff

  79. David Elliott

    Finding out your true self would be very helpful in decorating. It’s a beautiful thing. And definitely being able to set your budget is essential.

    April 14, 2019 at 3:25 pm

    All very great tips! Finding out your true self is so important. Many times it seems like people just want their homes to look like their favorite celebrities homes or they just decorate it however they think the “elite” would decorate their homes, with a bunch of weird art, lol. Great post!

    The budget is probably the hardest part for me. I always ended up going over because I just can’t help but buy all the decorations and furniture…I’m working on it though
